The flowers in my galvanized troughs are flourishing… snapped a few camera phone pix this weekend…
The verbena was not in bloom when I bought it… I assumed it was red… it's not. So I'm gonna tuck some more red Salvia in there… as it sorta looks like the red was a mistake, it wasn't.
I have had a few questions in the past about where I found my galvanized troughs… I purchased them at a local Feed and Seed store. While it's tempting to google everything and shop online these days… this is one thing you'll want to buy locally… I don't think they would ship well. Mine are about 24" tall x 4' wide.
A reader (thanks Kim) tipped me off to these which I also love… if you are into the galvanized look, these are fun:
They are appropriately named "Oscar" as in "the grouch"… get it? They are from CB2- here.
Remind me of these, remember…
*PS- Steph (in the comment section below) asked a good question… (are my trough planters entirely full of dirt) no, my planters are not entirely full of dirt. I had my husband build a platform to fill up the bottom half… the top on the platform is plywood with holes drilled into it and then I covered it with filter fabric, then gravel, then dirt. The trough has a drain in the bottom of it that I keep open.
