Review by Nancy
One of my new finds, the Plant Exchange In-ground Watering System makes it a snap to grow ground cover petunias in shrub-filled beds where the soil is predominantly clay.
The secret, the self-watering containers, eliminate the need for daily watering and the plants thrive in their compost enriched potting soil.
The controlled watering planters from PlantExchange combine the convenience of a self-watering container and a permanent in-ground sleeve that once buried allows you to change out plants in the landscape without digging new holes. How sweet is that? They're also great for growing moisture-loving plants in rock gardens and dry shade gardens. Or, use them to plant tender tropicals and when it's time to over-winter the plants, simply whisk them out of the ground without disturbing their roots.
The kit priced at $21.95, containing three 10 1/2 -inch containers and three sleeves, can be ordered on-line at In Ground Planter Website
