I recently wrote about How to make Fall Containers.
All of our Fall plant material arrived week Monday, in the 95+F weather! Ha! It’s a funny story involving office politics and the fact that this is a family biz, where I’m not part of the family, so I tend to not get involved in it (Yet I get to hear both sides!) . The maintenance manager normally doesn’t have her container materials come in until mid September. This whole season, the owner’s wife (her sister) with her friend, have been ‘helping’ (you know that kind of helping that causes you more problems?) take care of the containers on our clients properties. Well, the wife insisted that every clients pots ‘Looked like shit’. Hmmm, they’ve been fine the last 16 years the maintenance manager has been doing it…. Anyway, she got pressured into getting her flowers earlier than normal and now they are roasting in the heat. They couldn’t be planted, as many of the pots are in full sun & the plants would be dead in one afternoon. She wishes she could scream, “TOLD YA SO!!!” but where would that get her?
Who needs reality T.V.?
Thanks for visiting & keep on planting!
