00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,749

hey guys how's it going I am so excited




2

00:00:01,949 --> 00:00:03,609

for today's project we are going to be




3

00:00:03,810 --> 00:00:05,828

planting up all 40 of these hay racks




4

00:00:06,028 --> 00:00:08,108

that run along the front of our fence




5

00:00:08,308 --> 00:00:10,600

line here we did this last year for the




6

00:00:10,800 --> 00:00:13,030

very first time and it was incredible we




7

00:00:13,230 --> 00:00:16,240

enjoyed it so much and I planted so many




8

00:00:16,440 --> 00:00:18,970

plants up here we had lemon coral sedum




9

00:00:19,170 --> 00:00:21,400

super bean a large lilac blue supertunia




10

00:00:21,600 --> 00:00:23,620

royal magenta and supertunia Bordeaux it




11

00:00:23,820 --> 00:00:25,870

was a beautiful blend of plants but I




12

00:00:26,070 --> 00:00:28,239

think because it was the first year of




13

00:00:28,439 --> 00:00:29,560

the project I was so excited that I




14

00:00:29,760 --> 00:00:31,478

overkilled on how many plants I put any




15

00:00:31,678 --> 00:00:35,108

cherrick like I put 11 plants in each




16

00:00:35,308 --> 00:00:37,628

one of these hay racks which is probably




17

00:00:37,829 --> 00:00:39,939

a little bit too much so I'm taking a




18

00:00:40,140 --> 00:00:41,439

different approach this year in fact let




19

00:00:41,640 --> 00:00:43,479

me show you what I have planned in terms




20

00:00:43,679 --> 00:00:44,829

of plants we've got them in the back of




21

00:00:45,030 --> 00:00:47,259

the truck so I'm going to use a mixture




22

00:00:47,460 --> 00:00:48,788

of three different plants we've got




23

00:00:48,988 --> 00:00:50,858

supertunia vista bubble gum which is a




24

00:00:51,058 --> 00:00:53,259

favorite of mine we have supertunia




25

00:00:53,460 --> 00:00:54,338

vista silver berry




26

00:00:54,539 --> 00:00:56,739

and then a sweet caroline light green




27

00:00:56,939 --> 00:00:59,140

sweet potato vine so instead of 11




28

00:00:59,340 --> 00:01:01,959

plants I'm gonna use just 5 in each one




29

00:01:02,159 --> 00:01:03,369

of these hay racks because I really




30

00:01:03,570 --> 00:01:06,189

wanted to show you guys how you can




31

00:01:06,390 --> 00:01:08,409

create something like this any type of




32

00:01:08,609 --> 00:01:10,149

project either in a container or in your




33

00:01:10,349 --> 00:01:12,310

landscape with huge impact for a lot




34

00:01:12,510 --> 00:01:14,379

less if you choose the right kind of




35

00:01:14,579 --> 00:01:16,959

plant and all of the supertunia Vista




36

00:01:17,159 --> 00:01:20,250

series they're amazingly vigorous




37

00:01:20,450 --> 00:01:22,750

they're just amazing plants and like no




38

00:01:22,950 --> 00:01:24,250

matter where I've planted them they




39

00:01:24,450 --> 00:01:26,980

always do really well and they grow huge




40

00:01:27,180 --> 00:01:30,128

full of bloom so I've got all three of




41

00:01:30,328 --> 00:01:31,599

these plants kind of lined out in the




42

00:01:31,799 --> 00:01:33,369

basket because I wanted to show you kind




43

00:01:33,569 --> 00:01:35,469

of what I'm thinking in terms of layout




44

00:01:35,670 --> 00:01:37,390

so I'm going to start with a Vista




45

00:01:37,590 --> 00:01:38,950

silver berry on this side and then a




46

00:01:39,150 --> 00:01:40,988

bubblegum my sweet potato vine will be




47

00:01:41,188 --> 00:01:43,058

in the middle here silver berry and then




48

00:01:43,259 --> 00:01:45,399

bubblegum again so you'll notice that we




49

00:01:45,599 --> 00:01:47,980

already have soil this is fresh soil I




50

00:01:48,180 --> 00:01:50,558

brought a bag of it up here this is what




51

00:01:50,759 --> 00:01:52,959

they're full of just because this is




52

00:01:53,159 --> 00:01:55,329

such a small reservoir I don't feel like




53

00:01:55,530 --> 00:01:57,189

I can recycle soil from last year




54

00:01:57,390 --> 00:01:59,079

because those plants utilize every last




55

00:01:59,280 --> 00:02:01,448

ounce in fact we will be adding




56

00:02:01,649 --> 00:02:03,278

fertilizer we fertilize on a weekly




57

00:02:03,478 --> 00:02:05,159

basis to keep the plants really happy




58

00:02:05,359 --> 00:02:07,959

annuals that you want to perform really




59

00:02:08,159 --> 00:02:10,300

big need quite a bit of food so I'm also




60

00:02:10,500 --> 00:02:12,340

I haven't done this yet today but I'm




61

00:02:12,539 --> 00:02:13,330

going to be adding in




62

00:02:13,530 --> 00:02:15,310

a slow-release plant food into the soil




63

00:02:15,509 --> 00:02:17,590

before I plant couple of other things I




64

00:02:17,789 --> 00:02:19,150

wanted to mention these are the same




65

00:02:19,349 --> 00:02:21,640

Coco fiber liners from last year there




66

00:02:21,840 --> 00:02:23,439

is a difference in quality you can find




67

00:02:23,639 --> 00:02:25,510

really thick ones or fairly thin ones




68

00:02:25,710 --> 00:02:27,700

spring for the thick ones because they




69

00:02:27,900 --> 00:02:30,009

will last you for several years so these




70

00:02:30,209 --> 00:02:32,050

liners camera with the hay racks which




71

00:02:32,250 --> 00:02:33,790

were all sent to us by garden artisans




72

00:02:33,990 --> 00:02:35,830

last year and then I also wanted to




73

00:02:36,030 --> 00:02:37,540

mention the irrigation so we did run




74

00:02:37,740 --> 00:02:39,490

drip and I think when you're doing a




75

00:02:39,689 --> 00:02:41,710

project especially of this size you want




76

00:02:41,909 --> 00:02:43,450

to make sure to have irrigation set up




77

00:02:43,650 --> 00:02:45,850

really for for anything if you can run




78

00:02:46,050 --> 00:02:47,770

drip to any of your containers it makes




79

00:02:47,969 --> 00:02:50,350

life so much easier but we did four to




80

00:02:50,550 --> 00:02:52,780

gallon per hour emitters per basket and




81

00:02:52,979 --> 00:02:55,330

in the spring we ran it for about 10 to




82

00:02:55,530 --> 00:02:56,890

15 minutes every day which is what we'll




83

00:02:57,090 --> 00:02:59,080

start with today and then as it gets




84

00:02:59,280 --> 00:03:00,939

warmer or if we have extra windy days




85

00:03:01,139 --> 00:03:03,130

we'll increase the amount of time so




86

00:03:03,330 --> 00:03:04,630

like last year when it was above




87

00:03:04,830 --> 00:03:07,810

probably I think above 90 we started




88

00:03:08,009 --> 00:03:09,430

running them twice a day so morning and




89

00:03:09,629 --> 00:03:11,439

evening for 15 minutes each time and our




90

00:03:11,639 --> 00:03:14,469

plants were extremely extremely happy so




91

00:03:14,669 --> 00:03:16,150

let me go ahead and plant this one up




92

00:03:16,349 --> 00:03:18,069

just so I can show you guys how this




93

00:03:18,269 --> 00:03:19,689

whole thing is gonna go every single one




94

00:03:19,889 --> 00:03:21,160

of these hay racks would be planted




95

00:03:21,360 --> 00:03:23,560

exactly the same way I just want to give




96

00:03:23,759 --> 00:03:24,789

you guys a feel for it




97

00:03:24,989 --> 00:03:27,430

so in this hay rack I'm just gonna add a




98

00:03:27,629 --> 00:03:30,250

few tablespoons it's a brand new




99

00:03:30,449 --> 00:03:32,770

container a few tablespoons of this




100

00:03:32,969 --> 00:03:36,069

continuous release plant food and I'm




101

00:03:36,269 --> 00:03:38,050

just gonna work that in to the top layer




102

00:03:38,250 --> 00:03:40,420

of soil and I do have gloves for the




103

00:03:40,620 --> 00:03:41,920

rest of this project I just forgot to




104

00:03:42,120 --> 00:03:44,080

grab them I'll start with my Center




105

00:03:44,280 --> 00:03:45,610

plant that way I can make sure to get




106

00:03:45,810 --> 00:03:48,219

everything spaced proper so that's right




107

00:03:48,419 --> 00:03:50,110

here and I'm going to position these




108

00:03:50,310 --> 00:03:52,360

right in the center of the basket like




109

00:03:52,560 --> 00:03:54,069

this because I'm hoping they'll trail




110

00:03:54,269 --> 00:03:56,920

back and on the front side so it's




111

00:03:57,120 --> 00:03:59,349

pretty on both sides okay we'll do the




112

00:03:59,549 --> 00:04:01,689

silver berry on this side just like that




113

00:04:01,889 --> 00:04:04,569

and these sweet potato vines so the




114

00:04:04,769 --> 00:04:06,160

difference last year I use lemon coral




115

00:04:06,360 --> 00:04:08,050

sedum which actually did really really




116

00:04:08,250 --> 00:04:10,629

good I was surprised with how much water




117

00:04:10,829 --> 00:04:13,030

it was getting it held up and it grew




118

00:04:13,229 --> 00:04:15,250

really nicely but they're not quite as




119

00:04:15,449 --> 00:04:17,800

vigorous as a potato vine so we didn't




120

00:04:18,000 --> 00:04:20,319

get that really strong foliage accent so




121

00:04:20,519 --> 00:04:22,509

I'm excited for that but you do have to




122

00:04:22,709 --> 00:04:24,850

be mindful these are water hungry plants




123

00:04:25,050 --> 00:04:26,540

they like to be moist




124

00:04:26,740 --> 00:04:28,069

quite a bit of the time so that's




125

00:04:28,269 --> 00:04:30,319

something else to consider when you're




126

00:04:30,519 --> 00:04:31,730

picking out plants if you have an




127

00:04:31,930 --> 00:04:33,230

irrigation setup to your pots it's no




128

00:04:33,430 --> 00:04:35,778

big deal but if you don't you might want




129

00:04:35,978 --> 00:04:38,240

to you know adjust accordingly also when




130

00:04:38,439 --> 00:04:39,710

you're picking out your plants it's good




131

00:04:39,910 --> 00:04:41,838

to consider the growth habit of all of




132

00:04:42,038 --> 00:04:43,850

the plants because like with the lemon




133

00:04:44,050 --> 00:04:45,559

curl like I said it did really well and




134

00:04:45,759 --> 00:04:47,569

it did but you couldn't see it very well




135

00:04:47,769 --> 00:04:49,639

because all the other plants were so




136

00:04:49,839 --> 00:04:51,170

vigorous they were kind of growing over




137

00:04:51,370 --> 00:04:52,670

the top of it and if you came over and




138

00:04:52,870 --> 00:04:54,199

kind of spread those part plants apart




139

00:04:54,399 --> 00:04:55,790

you could see the lemon Coral they're




140

00:04:55,990 --> 00:04:58,309

just shining and looking beautiful but




141

00:04:58,509 --> 00:04:59,660

it's that's something to think about all




142

00:04:59,860 --> 00:05:01,100

of these plants kind of have the same




143

00:05:01,300 --> 00:05:02,959

vigor so I think they'll work really




144

00:05:03,158 --> 00:05:05,300

well together and so you'll be able to




145

00:05:05,500 --> 00:05:06,980

actually see our foliage accent this




146

00:05:07,180 --> 00:05:08,930

year okay so I think we're gonna set up




147

00:05:09,129 --> 00:05:10,730

a camera and just get a time-lapse of me




148

00:05:10,930 --> 00:05:12,319

planting the rest of these it's gonna




149

00:05:12,519 --> 00:05:13,939

look a lot faster than it happens in




150

00:05:14,139 --> 00:05:15,100

real life here we go




151

00:05:15,300 --> 00:05:42,399

[Music]




152

00:05:42,598 --> 00:05:45,129

oh my gosh you guys it turned out so




153

00:05:45,329 --> 00:05:46,989

pretty I mean if you would have told me




154

00:05:47,189 --> 00:05:48,639

even two years ago that I would be




155

00:05:48,838 --> 00:05:51,338

planting up 40 hay racks at my own house




156

00:05:51,538 --> 00:05:53,079

I would not have believed you




157

00:05:53,278 --> 00:05:55,149

this is just gonna be such a beautiful




158

00:05:55,348 --> 00:05:57,819

show and I think it could be scaled to




159

00:05:58,019 --> 00:06:00,009

any size whether you're doing one pot or




160

00:06:00,209 --> 00:06:03,338

one hay rack or ten or 40 or 100 you




161

00:06:03,538 --> 00:06:05,228

could kind of take these same planting




162

00:06:05,428 --> 00:06:07,209

principles and get the same results I




163

00:06:07,408 --> 00:06:09,028

think that this looks way more




164

00:06:09,228 --> 00:06:11,259

appropriately planted than it did last




165

00:06:11,459 --> 00:06:13,569

year to be completely honest I think




166

00:06:13,769 --> 00:06:15,759

that the plants will be happier they




167

00:06:15,959 --> 00:06:18,040

won't be in such hard competition with




168

00:06:18,240 --> 00:06:19,809

each other so that they'll be able to




169

00:06:20,009 --> 00:06:21,819

flourish a little bit more and the last




170

00:06:22,019 --> 00:06:23,528

thing that we're gonna do today is we're




171

00:06:23,728 --> 00:06:25,028

gonna plant up these large estate




172

00:06:25,228 --> 00:06:27,278

planters right here with some other fun




173

00:06:27,478 --> 00:06:29,519

stuff so vertigo Pennisetum you guys




174

00:06:29,718 --> 00:06:32,949

this is an amazing grass they grow so




175

00:06:33,149 --> 00:06:35,649

big in fact let me see four to four to




176

00:06:35,848 --> 00:06:38,230

eight feet so anywhere from four to




177

00:06:38,430 --> 00:06:39,639

eight feet and I think that that depends




178

00:06:39,838 --> 00:06:41,199

on how much Sun it's getting and how




179

00:06:41,399 --> 00:06:43,359

much water it gets as well I think it'll




180

00:06:43,559 --> 00:06:45,879

get bigger with more of those two things




181

00:06:46,079 --> 00:06:48,338

I planted these in several spots last




182

00:06:48,538 --> 00:06:50,139

year and they just they were a




183

00:06:50,338 --> 00:06:52,359

spectacular grass so I decided I wanted




184

00:06:52,559 --> 00:06:54,069

to do it in these planters up here and




185

00:06:54,269 --> 00:06:55,718

then to break it up because it is a




186

00:06:55,918 --> 00:06:57,669

darker colored grass and the blades do




187

00:06:57,869 --> 00:07:00,009

get quite large as the plant grows it's




188

00:07:00,209 --> 00:07:02,049

got a really strappy appearance but I




189

00:07:02,249 --> 00:07:03,759

wanted to break up the dark grass with




190

00:07:03,959 --> 00:07:05,410

the dark pot with some really pretty fun




191

00:07:05,610 --> 00:07:07,540

color underneath and I'm also going for




192

00:07:07,740 --> 00:07:09,160

the same thing I'm using way fewer




193

00:07:09,360 --> 00:07:11,859

plants in here six supertunia Vista




194

00:07:12,059 --> 00:07:13,959

bubble gum just spaced as evenly as I




195

00:07:14,158 --> 00:07:14,468

could




196

00:07:14,668 --> 00:07:16,509

around the outer part and then this one




197

00:07:16,709 --> 00:07:18,669

is exciting so I think this one's new




198

00:07:18,869 --> 00:07:20,109

this year it's called Diamond Mountain




199

00:07:20,309 --> 00:07:22,389

euphorbia you might recognize the name




200

00:07:22,588 --> 00:07:25,179

Diamond Frost which is very similar but




201

00:07:25,379 --> 00:07:26,949

Diamond Frost is more of an accent plant




202

00:07:27,149 --> 00:07:29,499

it kind of grows and just like it's more




203

00:07:29,699 --> 00:07:31,809

of a wispy appearance this one grows 2




204

00:07:32,009 --> 00:07:35,290

to 3 feet tall and like 18 inch spread




205

00:07:35,490 --> 00:07:37,088

on them so I think it's gonna be a




206

00:07:37,288 --> 00:07:39,459

gorgeous stair-step effect will have the




207

00:07:39,658 --> 00:07:41,468

huge grass they're really pretty just




208

00:07:41,668 --> 00:07:44,499

kind of block of white and then the pink




209

00:07:44,699 --> 00:07:47,230

kind of Spiller supertunia down below so




210

00:07:47,430 --> 00:07:48,489

we've already filled these up with soil




211

00:07:48,689 --> 00:07:50,980

as well and then I put the slow release




212

00:07:51,180 --> 00:07:53,528

fertilizer in so I am ready just to pop




213

00:07:53,728 --> 00:07:55,119

these all in and then we can get it




214

00:07:55,319 --> 00:07:56,340

overall look and




215

00:07:56,540 --> 00:07:59,730

we haven't shown yet is that there is




216

00:07:59,930 --> 00:08:01,980

kind of a repeat on the other side here




217

00:08:02,180 --> 00:08:04,139

we have the same container on this side




218

00:08:04,339 --> 00:08:05,910

of the opening and then we had room for




219

00:08:06,110 --> 00:08:08,340

one hay rack on this side and I thought




220

00:08:08,540 --> 00:08:09,750

it was important even though it's a




221

00:08:09,949 --> 00:08:11,670

little short section offense to kind of




222

00:08:11,870 --> 00:08:13,920

mirror what we had going on so it looked




223

00:08:14,120 --> 00:08:16,259

like a cohesive idea so I think what I'm




224

00:08:16,459 --> 00:08:17,639

gonna do is I'll just start right here




225

00:08:17,839 --> 00:08:20,799

and I'll get this one planted




226

00:08:22,160 --> 00:08:33,759

[Music]




227

00:08:33,960 --> 00:08:35,649

so there you have it they are all




228

00:08:35,849 --> 00:08:37,359

planted up for the season and I'm just




229

00:08:37,559 --> 00:08:39,759

so thrilled to see color I think it's




230

00:08:39,960 --> 00:08:42,129

gonna be just such a gorgeous show we




231

00:08:42,330 --> 00:08:43,659

did turn the water on just to test




232

00:08:43,860 --> 00:08:46,359

everything so you can see right here I




233

00:08:46,559 --> 00:08:48,549

have got an 8 to gallon per hour




234

00:08:48,750 --> 00:08:50,589

emitters dispersed fairly evenly




235

00:08:50,789 --> 00:08:51,939

throughout each one of these large




236

00:08:52,139 --> 00:08:54,129

containers and then on the hay racks




237

00:08:54,330 --> 00:08:56,229

here you can see kind of how they're




238

00:08:56,429 --> 00:08:57,819

running and see that water just coming




239

00:08:58,019 --> 00:09:00,698

out really nicely and we watch them




240

00:09:00,899 --> 00:09:02,679

pretty closely throughout the first




241

00:09:02,879 --> 00:09:04,179

atleast day or two that we're running




242

00:09:04,379 --> 00:09:05,349

the drips to make sure we don't have any




243

00:09:05,549 --> 00:09:08,319

leaks or any you know any problems any




244

00:09:08,519 --> 00:09:10,089

plugged in ITER's from the previous year




245

00:09:10,289 --> 00:09:12,429

because we leave this out all winter we




246

00:09:12,629 --> 00:09:13,839

don't have to put the drip system away




247

00:09:14,039 --> 00:09:16,328

because there's no water left in it all




248

00:09:16,528 --> 00:09:18,279

the water comes out of these right here




249

00:09:18,480 --> 00:09:20,409

so we just kind of look at them closely




250

00:09:20,610 --> 00:09:21,879

to make sure that nothing's happened




251

00:09:22,080 --> 00:09:24,399

over the course of a winter so anyway I




252

00:09:24,600 --> 00:09:26,409

hope that these type of videos are




253

00:09:26,610 --> 00:09:28,059

helpful to you guys just to see what




254

00:09:28,259 --> 00:09:29,679

containers like this look like in the




255

00:09:29,879 --> 00:09:31,419

beginning while I think it looks




256

00:09:31,620 --> 00:09:34,029

absolutely beautiful I cannot wait to




257

00:09:34,230 --> 00:09:35,500

show you what they look like even a




258

00:09:35,700 --> 00:09:38,109

month or two from now so stay tuned for




259

00:09:38,309 --> 00:09:39,399

those videos we'll be doing lots of




260

00:09:39,600 --> 00:09:41,199

updates throughout the season thank you




261

00:09:41,399 --> 00:09:42,609

guys so much for watching and we will




262

00:09:42,809 --> 00:09:44,159

see you in the next video bye




263

00:09:44,360 --> 00:09:49,360

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,749

hey guys how's it going I am so excited




2

00:00:01,949 --> 00:00:03,609

for today's project we are going to be




3

00:00:03,810 --> 00:00:05,828

planting up all 40 of these hay racks




4

00:00:06,028 --> 00:00:08,108

that run along the front of our fence




5

00:00:08,308 --> 00:00:10,600

line here we did this last year for the




6

00:00:10,800 --> 00:00:13,030

very first time and it was incredible we




7

00:00:13,230 --> 00:00:16,240

enjoyed it so much and I planted so many




8

00:00:16,440 --> 00:00:18,970

plants up here we had lemon coral sedum




9

00:00:19,170 --> 00:00:21,400

super bean a large lilac blue supertunia




10

00:00:21,600 --> 00:00:23,620

royal magenta and supertunia Bordeaux it




11

00:00:23,820 --> 00:00:25,870

was a beautiful blend of plants but I




12

00:00:26,070 --> 00:00:28,239

think because it was the first year of




13

00:00:28,439 --> 00:00:29,560

the project I was so excited that I




14

00:00:29,760 --> 00:00:31,478

overkilled on how many plants I put any




15

00:00:31,678 --> 00:00:35,108

cherrick like I put 11 plants in each




16

00:00:35,308 --> 00:00:37,628

one of these hay racks which is probably




17

00:00:37,829 --> 00:00:39,939

a little bit too much so I'm taking a




18

00:00:40,140 --> 00:00:41,439

different approach this year in fact let




19

00:00:41,640 --> 00:00:43,479

me show you what I have planned in terms




20

00:00:43,679 --> 00:00:44,829

of plants we've got them in the back of




21

00:00:45,030 --> 00:00:47,259

the truck so I'm going to use a mixture




22

00:00:47,460 --> 00:00:48,788

of three different plants we've got




23

00:00:48,988 --> 00:00:50,858

supertunia vista bubble gum which is a




24

00:00:51,058 --> 00:00:53,259

favorite of mine we have supertunia




25

00:00:53,460 --> 00:00:54,338

vista silver berry




26

00:00:54,539 --> 00:00:56,739

and then a sweet caroline light green




27

00:00:56,939 --> 00:00:59,140

sweet potato vine so instead of 11




28

00:00:59,340 --> 00:01:01,959

plants I'm gonna use just 5 in each one




29

00:01:02,159 --> 00:01:03,369

of these hay racks because I really




30

00:01:03,570 --> 00:01:06,189

wanted to show you guys how you can




31

00:01:06,390 --> 00:01:08,409

create something like this any type of




32

00:01:08,609 --> 00:01:10,149

project either in a container or in your




33

00:01:10,349 --> 00:01:12,310

landscape with huge impact for a lot




34

00:01:12,510 --> 00:01:14,379

less if you choose the right kind of




35

00:01:14,579 --> 00:01:16,959

plant and all of the supertunia Vista




36

00:01:17,159 --> 00:01:20,250

series they're amazingly vigorous




37

00:01:20,450 --> 00:01:22,750

they're just amazing plants and like no




38

00:01:22,950 --> 00:01:24,250

matter where I've planted them they




39

00:01:24,450 --> 00:01:26,980

always do really well and they grow huge




40

00:01:27,180 --> 00:01:30,128

full of bloom so I've got all three of




41

00:01:30,328 --> 00:01:31,599

these plants kind of lined out in the




42

00:01:31,799 --> 00:01:33,369

basket because I wanted to show you kind




43

00:01:33,569 --> 00:01:35,469

of what I'm thinking in terms of layout




44

00:01:35,670 --> 00:01:37,390

so I'm going to start with a Vista




45

00:01:37,590 --> 00:01:38,950

silver berry on this side and then a




46

00:01:39,150 --> 00:01:40,988

bubblegum my sweet potato vine will be




47

00:01:41,188 --> 00:01:43,058

in the middle here silver berry and then




48

00:01:43,259 --> 00:01:45,399

bubblegum again so you'll notice that we




49

00:01:45,599 --> 00:01:47,980

already have soil this is fresh soil I




50

00:01:48,180 --> 00:01:50,558

brought a bag of it up here this is what




51

00:01:50,759 --> 00:01:52,959

they're full of just because this is




52

00:01:53,159 --> 00:01:55,329

such a small reservoir I don't feel like




53

00:01:55,530 --> 00:01:57,189

I can recycle soil from last year




54

00:01:57,390 --> 00:01:59,079

because those plants utilize every last




55

00:01:59,280 --> 00:02:01,448

ounce in fact we will be adding




56

00:02:01,649 --> 00:02:03,278

fertilizer we fertilize on a weekly




57

00:02:03,478 --> 00:02:05,159

basis to keep the plants really happy




58

00:02:05,359 --> 00:02:07,959

annuals that you want to perform really




59

00:02:08,159 --> 00:02:10,300

big need quite a bit of food so I'm also




60

00:02:10,500 --> 00:02:12,340

I haven't done this yet today but I'm




61

00:02:12,539 --> 00:02:13,330

going to be adding in




62

00:02:13,530 --> 00:02:15,310

a slow-release plant food into the soil




63

00:02:15,509 --> 00:02:17,590

before I plant couple of other things I




64

00:02:17,789 --> 00:02:19,150

wanted to mention these are the same




65

00:02:19,349 --> 00:02:21,640

Coco fiber liners from last year there




66

00:02:21,840 --> 00:02:23,439

is a difference in quality you can find




67

00:02:23,639 --> 00:02:25,510

really thick ones or fairly thin ones




68

00:02:25,710 --> 00:02:27,700

spring for the thick ones because they




69

00:02:27,900 --> 00:02:30,009

will last you for several years so these




70

00:02:30,209 --> 00:02:32,050

liners camera with the hay racks which




71

00:02:32,250 --> 00:02:33,790

were all sent to us by garden artisans




72

00:02:33,990 --> 00:02:35,830

last year and then I also wanted to




73

00:02:36,030 --> 00:02:37,540

mention the irrigation so we did run




74

00:02:37,740 --> 00:02:39,490

drip and I think when you're doing a




75

00:02:39,689 --> 00:02:41,710

project especially of this size you want




76

00:02:41,909 --> 00:02:43,450

to make sure to have irrigation set up




77

00:02:43,650 --> 00:02:45,850

really for for anything if you can run




78

00:02:46,050 --> 00:02:47,770

drip to any of your containers it makes




79

00:02:47,969 --> 00:02:50,350

life so much easier but we did four to




80

00:02:50,550 --> 00:02:52,780

gallon per hour emitters per basket and




81

00:02:52,979 --> 00:02:55,330

in the spring we ran it for about 10 to




82

00:02:55,530 --> 00:02:56,890

15 minutes every day which is what we'll




83

00:02:57,090 --> 00:02:59,080

start with today and then as it gets




84

00:02:59,280 --> 00:03:00,939

warmer or if we have extra windy days




85

00:03:01,139 --> 00:03:03,130

we'll increase the amount of time so




86

00:03:03,330 --> 00:03:04,630

like last year when it was above




87

00:03:04,830 --> 00:03:07,810

probably I think above 90 we started




88

00:03:08,009 --> 00:03:09,430

running them twice a day so morning and




89

00:03:09,629 --> 00:03:11,439

evening for 15 minutes each time and our




90

00:03:11,639 --> 00:03:14,469

plants were extremely extremely happy so




91

00:03:14,669 --> 00:03:16,150

let me go ahead and plant this one up




92

00:03:16,349 --> 00:03:18,069

just so I can show you guys how this




93

00:03:18,269 --> 00:03:19,689

whole thing is gonna go every single one




94

00:03:19,889 --> 00:03:21,160

of these hay racks would be planted




95

00:03:21,360 --> 00:03:23,560

exactly the same way I just want to give




96

00:03:23,759 --> 00:03:24,789

you guys a feel for it




97

00:03:24,989 --> 00:03:27,430

so in this hay rack I'm just gonna add a




98

00:03:27,629 --> 00:03:30,250

few tablespoons it's a brand new




99

00:03:30,449 --> 00:03:32,770

container a few tablespoons of this




100

00:03:32,969 --> 00:03:36,069

continuous release plant food and I'm




101

00:03:36,269 --> 00:03:38,050

just gonna work that in to the top layer




102

00:03:38,250 --> 00:03:40,420

of soil and I do have gloves for the




103

00:03:40,620 --> 00:03:41,920

rest of this project I just forgot to




104

00:03:42,120 --> 00:03:44,080

grab them I'll start with my Center




105

00:03:44,280 --> 00:03:45,610

plant that way I can make sure to get




106

00:03:45,810 --> 00:03:48,219

everything spaced proper so that's right




107

00:03:48,419 --> 00:03:50,110

here and I'm going to position these




108

00:03:50,310 --> 00:03:52,360

right in the center of the basket like




109

00:03:52,560 --> 00:03:54,069

this because I'm hoping they'll trail




110

00:03:54,269 --> 00:03:56,920

back and on the front side so it's




111

00:03:57,120 --> 00:03:59,349

pretty on both sides okay we'll do the




112

00:03:59,549 --> 00:04:01,689

silver berry on this side just like that




113

00:04:01,889 --> 00:04:04,569

and these sweet potato vines so the




114

00:04:04,769 --> 00:04:06,160

difference last year I use lemon coral




115

00:04:06,360 --> 00:04:08,050

sedum which actually did really really




116

00:04:08,250 --> 00:04:10,629

good I was surprised with how much water




117

00:04:10,829 --> 00:04:13,030

it was getting it held up and it grew




118

00:04:13,229 --> 00:04:15,250

really nicely but they're not quite as




119

00:04:15,449 --> 00:04:17,800

vigorous as a potato vine so we didn't




120

00:04:18,000 --> 00:04:20,319

get that really strong foliage accent so




121

00:04:20,519 --> 00:04:22,509

I'm excited for that but you do have to




122

00:04:22,709 --> 00:04:24,850

be mindful these are water hungry plants




123

00:04:25,050 --> 00:04:26,540

they like to be moist




124

00:04:26,740 --> 00:04:28,069

quite a bit of the time so that's




125

00:04:28,269 --> 00:04:30,319

something else to consider when you're




126

00:04:30,519 --> 00:04:31,730

picking out plants if you have an




127

00:04:31,930 --> 00:04:33,230

irrigation setup to your pots it's no




128

00:04:33,430 --> 00:04:35,778

big deal but if you don't you might want




129

00:04:35,978 --> 00:04:38,240

to you know adjust accordingly also when




130

00:04:38,439 --> 00:04:39,710

you're picking out your plants it's good




131

00:04:39,910 --> 00:04:41,838

to consider the growth habit of all of




132

00:04:42,038 --> 00:04:43,850

the plants because like with the lemon




133

00:04:44,050 --> 00:04:45,559

curl like I said it did really well and




134

00:04:45,759 --> 00:04:47,569

it did but you couldn't see it very well




135

00:04:47,769 --> 00:04:49,639

because all the other plants were so




136

00:04:49,839 --> 00:04:51,170

vigorous they were kind of growing over




137

00:04:51,370 --> 00:04:52,670

the top of it and if you came over and




138

00:04:52,870 --> 00:04:54,199

kind of spread those part plants apart




139

00:04:54,399 --> 00:04:55,790

you could see the lemon Coral they're




140

00:04:55,990 --> 00:04:58,309

just shining and looking beautiful but




141

00:04:58,509 --> 00:04:59,660

it's that's something to think about all




142

00:04:59,860 --> 00:05:01,100

of these plants kind of have the same




143

00:05:01,300 --> 00:05:02,959

vigor so I think they'll work really




144

00:05:03,158 --> 00:05:05,300

well together and so you'll be able to




145

00:05:05,500 --> 00:05:06,980

actually see our foliage accent this




146

00:05:07,180 --> 00:05:08,930

year okay so I think we're gonna set up




147

00:05:09,129 --> 00:05:10,730

a camera and just get a time-lapse of me




148

00:05:10,930 --> 00:05:12,319

planting the rest of these it's gonna




149

00:05:12,519 --> 00:05:13,939

look a lot faster than it happens in




150

00:05:14,139 --> 00:05:15,100

real life here we go




151

00:05:15,300 --> 00:05:42,399

[Music]




152

00:05:42,598 --> 00:05:45,129

oh my gosh you guys it turned out so




153

00:05:45,329 --> 00:05:46,989

pretty I mean if you would have told me




154

00:05:47,189 --> 00:05:48,639

even two years ago that I would be




155

00:05:48,838 --> 00:05:51,338

planting up 40 hay racks at my own house




156

00:05:51,538 --> 00:05:53,079

I would not have believed you




157

00:05:53,278 --> 00:05:55,149

this is just gonna be such a beautiful




158

00:05:55,348 --> 00:05:57,819

show and I think it could be scaled to




159

00:05:58,019 --> 00:06:00,009

any size whether you're doing one pot or




160

00:06:00,209 --> 00:06:03,338

one hay rack or ten or 40 or 100 you




161

00:06:03,538 --> 00:06:05,228

could kind of take these same planting




162

00:06:05,428 --> 00:06:07,209

principles and get the same results I




163

00:06:07,408 --> 00:06:09,028

think that this looks way more




164

00:06:09,228 --> 00:06:11,259

appropriately planted than it did last




165

00:06:11,459 --> 00:06:13,569

year to be completely honest I think




166

00:06:13,769 --> 00:06:15,759

that the plants will be happier they




167

00:06:15,959 --> 00:06:18,040

won't be in such hard competition with




168

00:06:18,240 --> 00:06:19,809

each other so that they'll be able to




169

00:06:20,009 --> 00:06:21,819

flourish a little bit more and the last




170

00:06:22,019 --> 00:06:23,528

thing that we're gonna do today is we're




171

00:06:23,728 --> 00:06:25,028

gonna plant up these large estate




172

00:06:25,228 --> 00:06:27,278

planters right here with some other fun




173

00:06:27,478 --> 00:06:29,519

stuff so vertigo Pennisetum you guys




174

00:06:29,718 --> 00:06:32,949

this is an amazing grass they grow so




175

00:06:33,149 --> 00:06:35,649

big in fact let me see four to four to




176

00:06:35,848 --> 00:06:38,230

eight feet so anywhere from four to




177

00:06:38,430 --> 00:06:39,639

eight feet and I think that that depends




178

00:06:39,838 --> 00:06:41,199

on how much Sun it's getting and how




179

00:06:41,399 --> 00:06:43,359

much water it gets as well I think it'll




180

00:06:43,559 --> 00:06:45,879

get bigger with more of those two things




181

00:06:46,079 --> 00:06:48,338

I planted these in several spots last




182

00:06:48,538 --> 00:06:50,139

year and they just they were a




183

00:06:50,338 --> 00:06:52,359

spectacular grass so I decided I wanted




184

00:06:52,559 --> 00:06:54,069

to do it in these planters up here and




185

00:06:54,269 --> 00:06:55,718

then to break it up because it is a




186

00:06:55,918 --> 00:06:57,669

darker colored grass and the blades do




187

00:06:57,869 --> 00:07:00,009

get quite large as the plant grows it's




188

00:07:00,209 --> 00:07:02,049

got a really strappy appearance but I




189

00:07:02,249 --> 00:07:03,759

wanted to break up the dark grass with




190

00:07:03,959 --> 00:07:05,410

the dark pot with some really pretty fun




191

00:07:05,610 --> 00:07:07,540

color underneath and I'm also going for




192

00:07:07,740 --> 00:07:09,160

the same thing I'm using way fewer




193

00:07:09,360 --> 00:07:11,859

plants in here six supertunia Vista




194

00:07:12,059 --> 00:07:13,959

bubble gum just spaced as evenly as I




195

00:07:14,158 --> 00:07:14,468

could




196

00:07:14,668 --> 00:07:16,509

around the outer part and then this one




197

00:07:16,709 --> 00:07:18,669

is exciting so I think this one's new




198

00:07:18,869 --> 00:07:20,109

this year it's called Diamond Mountain




199

00:07:20,309 --> 00:07:22,389

euphorbia you might recognize the name




200

00:07:22,588 --> 00:07:25,179

Diamond Frost which is very similar but




201

00:07:25,379 --> 00:07:26,949

Diamond Frost is more of an accent plant




202

00:07:27,149 --> 00:07:29,499

it kind of grows and just like it's more




203

00:07:29,699 --> 00:07:31,809

of a wispy appearance this one grows 2




204

00:07:32,009 --> 00:07:35,290

to 3 feet tall and like 18 inch spread




205

00:07:35,490 --> 00:07:37,088

on them so I think it's gonna be a




206

00:07:37,288 --> 00:07:39,459

gorgeous stair-step effect will have the




207

00:07:39,658 --> 00:07:41,468

huge grass they're really pretty just




208

00:07:41,668 --> 00:07:44,499

kind of block of white and then the pink




209

00:07:44,699 --> 00:07:47,230

kind of Spiller supertunia down below so




210

00:07:47,430 --> 00:07:48,489

we've already filled these up with soil




211

00:07:48,689 --> 00:07:50,980

as well and then I put the slow release




212

00:07:51,180 --> 00:07:53,528

fertilizer in so I am ready just to pop




213

00:07:53,728 --> 00:07:55,119

these all in and then we can get it




214

00:07:55,319 --> 00:07:56,340

overall look and




215

00:07:56,540 --> 00:07:59,730

we haven't shown yet is that there is




216

00:07:59,930 --> 00:08:01,980

kind of a repeat on the other side here




217

00:08:02,180 --> 00:08:04,139

we have the same container on this side




218

00:08:04,339 --> 00:08:05,910

of the opening and then we had room for




219

00:08:06,110 --> 00:08:08,340

one hay rack on this side and I thought




220

00:08:08,540 --> 00:08:09,750

it was important even though it's a




221

00:08:09,949 --> 00:08:11,670

little short section offense to kind of




222

00:08:11,870 --> 00:08:13,920

mirror what we had going on so it looked




223

00:08:14,120 --> 00:08:16,259

like a cohesive idea so I think what I'm




224

00:08:16,459 --> 00:08:17,639

gonna do is I'll just start right here




225

00:08:17,839 --> 00:08:20,799

and I'll get this one planted




226

00:08:22,160 --> 00:08:33,759

[Music]




227

00:08:33,960 --> 00:08:35,649

so there you have it they are all




228

00:08:35,849 --> 00:08:37,359

planted up for the season and I'm just




229

00:08:37,559 --> 00:08:39,759

so thrilled to see color I think it's




230

00:08:39,960 --> 00:08:42,129

gonna be just such a gorgeous show we




231

00:08:42,330 --> 00:08:43,659

did turn the water on just to test




232

00:08:43,860 --> 00:08:46,359

everything so you can see right here I




233

00:08:46,559 --> 00:08:48,549

have got an 8 to gallon per hour




234

00:08:48,750 --> 00:08:50,589

emitters dispersed fairly evenly




235

00:08:50,789 --> 00:08:51,939

throughout each one of these large




236

00:08:52,139 --> 00:08:54,129

containers and then on the hay racks




237

00:08:54,330 --> 00:08:56,229

here you can see kind of how they're




238

00:08:56,429 --> 00:08:57,819

running and see that water just coming




239

00:08:58,019 --> 00:09:00,698

out really nicely and we watch them




240

00:09:00,899 --> 00:09:02,679

pretty closely throughout the first




241

00:09:02,879 --> 00:09:04,179

atleast day or two that we're running




242

00:09:04,379 --> 00:09:05,349

the drips to make sure we don't have any




243

00:09:05,549 --> 00:09:08,319

leaks or any you know any problems any




244

00:09:08,519 --> 00:09:10,089

plugged in ITER's from the previous year




245

00:09:10,289 --> 00:09:12,429

because we leave this out all winter we




246

00:09:12,629 --> 00:09:13,839

don't have to put the drip system away




247

00:09:14,039 --> 00:09:16,328

because there's no water left in it all




248

00:09:16,528 --> 00:09:18,279

the water comes out of these right here




249

00:09:18,480 --> 00:09:20,409

so we just kind of look at them closely




250

00:09:20,610 --> 00:09:21,879

to make sure that nothing's happened




251

00:09:22,080 --> 00:09:24,399

over the course of a winter so anyway I




252

00:09:24,600 --> 00:09:26,409

hope that these type of videos are




253

00:09:26,610 --> 00:09:28,059

helpful to you guys just to see what




254

00:09:28,259 --> 00:09:29,679

containers like this look like in the




255

00:09:29,879 --> 00:09:31,419

beginning while I think it looks




256

00:09:31,620 --> 00:09:34,029

absolutely beautiful I cannot wait to




257

00:09:34,230 --> 00:09:35,500

show you what they look like even a




258

00:09:35,700 --> 00:09:38,109

month or two from now so stay tuned for




259

00:09:38,309 --> 00:09:39,399

those videos we'll be doing lots of




260

00:09:39,600 --> 00:09:41,199

updates throughout the season thank you




261

00:09:41,399 --> 00:09:42,609

guys so much for watching and we will




262

00:09:42,809 --> 00:09:44,159

see you in the next video bye

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,570

hey guys good morning I'm getting ready




2

00:00:01,770 --> 00:00:03,099

to plant some more hydrangeas in my




3

00:00:03,299 --> 00:00:04,929

garden today you might recognize this




4

00:00:05,129 --> 00:00:07,000

flowerbed I've planted pretty much




5

00:00:07,200 --> 00:00:08,859

annuals in this spot for the last couple




6

00:00:09,058 --> 00:00:10,540

of years and it's been really fun to




7

00:00:10,740 --> 00:00:12,430

experiment with some color and texture




8

00:00:12,630 --> 00:00:14,470

but I was ready for something a little




9

00:00:14,669 --> 00:00:16,329

bit more permanent so these are called




10

00:00:16,528 --> 00:00:18,609

fire light hydrangeas they're a type of




11

00:00:18,809 --> 00:00:21,220

paniculata which paniculata s-- as a




12

00:00:21,420 --> 00:00:23,400

whole are really easy maintenance




13

00:00:23,600 --> 00:00:25,780

hydrangeas they're really winter hardy




14

00:00:25,980 --> 00:00:27,249

like I think this is a zone three




15

00:00:27,449 --> 00:00:29,769

through eight so I mean it can take




16

00:00:29,969 --> 00:00:31,659

winter temperatures really low and




17

00:00:31,859 --> 00:00:33,849

paniculata SAR the most sun tolerant




18

00:00:34,049 --> 00:00:36,759

hydrangea and it gets very hot and dry




19

00:00:36,960 --> 00:00:39,128

here in Eastern Oregon and the Sun is




20

00:00:39,329 --> 00:00:41,919

very intense but paniculata us handle it




21

00:00:42,119 --> 00:00:43,869

very well you might be familiar with the




22

00:00:44,070 --> 00:00:45,518

limelight hydrangea super popular




23

00:00:45,719 --> 00:00:48,070

beautiful hydrangea I have some planted




24

00:00:48,270 --> 00:00:50,140

in another area of my garden but the




25

00:00:50,340 --> 00:00:51,518

thing about fire light is that they




26

00:00:51,719 --> 00:00:53,739

bloom a lot earlier in the season than




27

00:00:53,939 --> 00:00:55,869

the limelight so if you live in an area




28

00:00:56,070 --> 00:00:58,119

with more mild temperatures like cooler




29

00:00:58,320 --> 00:01:00,338

nights cooler summers this one will




30

00:01:00,539 --> 00:01:02,169

bloom a lot earlier for you so you can




31

00:01:02,369 --> 00:01:04,329

enjoy it throughout the season and then




32

00:01:04,530 --> 00:01:06,369

it starts coloring up like the blooms




33

00:01:06,569 --> 00:01:08,019

start changing so it comes out with




34

00:01:08,219 --> 00:01:09,488

creamy white blooms in the very




35

00:01:09,688 --> 00:01:11,500

beginning and then as soon as the




36

00:01:11,700 --> 00:01:12,730

nighttime temperatures start to drop




37

00:01:12,930 --> 00:01:14,738

even a little bit it triggers the color




38

00:01:14,938 --> 00:01:16,808

change in the blooms and they really




39

00:01:17,009 --> 00:01:19,238

quickly turn into a like vivid like




40

00:01:19,438 --> 00:01:21,969

reddish pink it's very beautiful show so




41

00:01:22,170 --> 00:01:24,609

I'm really excited to see what this




42

00:01:24,810 --> 00:01:26,590

hedge looks like now they do grow quite




43

00:01:26,790 --> 00:01:28,299

large so they grow six to eight feet




44

00:01:28,500 --> 00:01:29,799

tall and wide now that's if you just




45

00:01:30,000 --> 00:01:30,909

kind of let them do their thing




46

00:01:31,109 --> 00:01:32,918

you might be thinking I'm crazy cuz this




47

00:01:33,118 --> 00:01:36,009

is only about four feet wide or so we




48

00:01:36,209 --> 00:01:37,959

are planning on extending these




49

00:01:38,159 --> 00:01:39,549

flowerbeds quite far




50

00:01:39,750 --> 00:01:42,009

maybe next year so I know that this is




51

00:01:42,209 --> 00:01:43,719

going to be my background kind of the




52

00:01:43,920 --> 00:01:46,689

backdrop hedge and you can size control




53

00:01:46,890 --> 00:01:48,159

them a little bit that's the other thing




54

00:01:48,359 --> 00:01:49,840

about having a hydrangea that blooms on




55

00:01:50,040 --> 00:01:52,299

new wood you can go in in early spring




56

00:01:52,500 --> 00:01:53,980

when they just start to bud up and you




57

00:01:54,180 --> 00:01:56,140

can cut them back and it's actually good




58

00:01:56,340 --> 00:01:57,518

for the plant it keeps them really




59

00:01:57,718 --> 00:02:00,789

strong but fire light stems are really




60

00:02:00,989 --> 00:02:02,590

strong just on their own even stronger




61

00:02:02,790 --> 00:02:04,299

than the lime lights so now I want to




62

00:02:04,500 --> 00:02:06,579

get all of these in the ground I am




63

00:02:06,780 --> 00:02:08,080

going to be using a little bit of this




64

00:02:08,280 --> 00:02:10,000

bio tone starter fertilizer in each of




65

00:02:10,199 --> 00:02:11,590

the holes but no compost nothing else




66

00:02:11,789 --> 00:02:12,520

and




67

00:02:12,719 --> 00:02:13,660

then I do have to run some new




68

00:02:13,860 --> 00:02:15,760

irrigation this did have drip lines in




69

00:02:15,960 --> 00:02:17,740

it but they were kind of old and all the




70

00:02:17,939 --> 00:02:19,090

emitters were really caked with hard




71

00:02:19,289 --> 00:02:21,310

water so we'll run a new water line and




72

00:02:21,509 --> 00:02:22,570

then I'm going to be putting probably




73

00:02:22,770 --> 00:02:25,180

two two gallon per hour emitters on each




74

00:02:25,379 --> 00:02:27,700

one of these hydrangea root balls so I




75

00:02:27,900 --> 00:02:28,930

can make sure to keep them very well




76

00:02:29,129 --> 00:02:29,860

hydrated




77

00:02:30,060 --> 00:03:10,480

[Music]




78

00:03:10,680 --> 00:03:12,710

so we've got them all in the ground and




79

00:03:12,909 --> 00:03:14,630

I ran all the irrigation so like I said




80

00:03:14,830 --> 00:03:16,789

I did two to gallon per hour emitters to




81

00:03:16,989 --> 00:03:19,189

each root ball and I find that's what




82

00:03:19,389 --> 00:03:21,140

they need here in our hot dry climate in




83

00:03:21,340 --> 00:03:23,539

fact we run our drips every single day




84

00:03:23,739 --> 00:03:25,460

for about an hour when the temperatures




85

00:03:25,659 --> 00:03:27,469

go above a hundred and that's what keeps




86

00:03:27,669 --> 00:03:29,240

them looking really really nice and




87

00:03:29,439 --> 00:03:31,189

you'll have to adjust that depending on




88

00:03:31,389 --> 00:03:33,890

your weather your region and kind of you




89

00:03:34,090 --> 00:03:35,570

know what they typically like and you




90

00:03:35,770 --> 00:03:36,920

can ask somebody at your local garden




91

00:03:37,120 --> 00:03:38,090

center and kind of get their




92

00:03:38,289 --> 00:03:40,130

recommendation for that if you notice




93

00:03:40,330 --> 00:03:42,020

your hydrangea blooms turning brown




94

00:03:42,219 --> 00:03:44,150

later in the summer rather than turning




95

00:03:44,349 --> 00:03:46,130

the color they're supposed to that means




96

00:03:46,330 --> 00:03:47,660

your hydrangea is not getting enough




97

00:03:47,860 --> 00:03:48,950

water so that's just something to be




98

00:03:49,150 --> 00:03:51,140

mindful of and I think this is going to




99

00:03:51,340 --> 00:03:53,390

be a glorious hedge of hydrangeas but I




100

00:03:53,590 --> 00:03:55,310

also feel that the fire light hydrogen




101

00:03:55,509 --> 00:03:57,349

would be a gorgeous specimen plant so if




102

00:03:57,549 --> 00:03:59,210

you don't have you know this much space




103

00:03:59,409 --> 00:04:01,219

to fill or you just want to have one to




104

00:04:01,419 --> 00:04:03,800

enjoy it's you know a big enough shrub




105

00:04:04,000 --> 00:04:06,110

that it'll look gorgeous but I do have a




106

00:04:06,310 --> 00:04:08,210

chart that's super handy that shows a




107

00:04:08,409 --> 00:04:09,439

whole bunch of different paniculata




108

00:04:09,639 --> 00:04:11,599

hydrangeas and what time of the year




109

00:04:11,799 --> 00:04:13,700

they start to bloom so you can see here




110

00:04:13,900 --> 00:04:15,829

in the very early category there's quick




111

00:04:16,029 --> 00:04:17,629

fire little quick fire bow bow and fire




112

00:04:17,829 --> 00:04:18,829

light and it shows kind of their




113

00:04:19,029 --> 00:04:20,658

different growth habits which is super




114

00:04:20,858 --> 00:04:22,730

helpful and then you've got your early




115

00:04:22,930 --> 00:04:24,650

category which is pinky-winky and then




116

00:04:24,850 --> 00:04:26,750

midseason bloomers are your Zinfandel




117

00:04:26,949 --> 00:04:29,028

little lime and lime light so that's it




118

00:04:29,228 --> 00:04:30,650

you guys hope you enjoyed seeing this




119

00:04:30,850 --> 00:04:32,689

henge come in and I hope you are going




120

00:04:32,889 --> 00:04:34,338

to enjoy the progress shots that will




121

00:04:34,538 --> 00:04:36,139

give you throughout the season because I




122

00:04:36,339 --> 00:04:38,210

think that is when it's gonna get really




123

00:04:38,410 --> 00:04:40,100

amazing thanks guys so much for watching

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,570

hey guys good morning I'm getting ready




2

00:00:01,770 --> 00:00:03,099

to plant some more hydrangeas in my




3

00:00:03,299 --> 00:00:04,929

garden today you might recognize this




4

00:00:05,129 --> 00:00:07,000

flowerbed I've planted pretty much




5

00:00:07,200 --> 00:00:08,859

annuals in this spot for the last couple




6

00:00:09,058 --> 00:00:10,540

of years and it's been really fun to




7

00:00:10,740 --> 00:00:12,430

experiment with some color and texture




8

00:00:12,630 --> 00:00:14,470

but I was ready for something a little




9

00:00:14,669 --> 00:00:16,329

bit more permanent so these are called




10

00:00:16,528 --> 00:00:18,609

fire light hydrangeas they're a type of




11

00:00:18,809 --> 00:00:21,220

paniculata which paniculata s-- as a




12

00:00:21,420 --> 00:00:23,400

whole are really easy maintenance




13

00:00:23,600 --> 00:00:25,780

hydrangeas they're really winter hardy




14

00:00:25,980 --> 00:00:27,249

like I think this is a zone three




15

00:00:27,449 --> 00:00:29,769

through eight so I mean it can take




16

00:00:29,969 --> 00:00:31,659

winter temperatures really low and




17

00:00:31,859 --> 00:00:33,849

paniculata SAR the most sun tolerant




18

00:00:34,049 --> 00:00:36,759

00:03:10,680 --> 00:03:12,710

so we've got them all in the ground and




79

00:03:12,909 --> 00:03:14,630

I ran all the irrigation so like I said




80

00:03:14,830 --> 00:03:16,789

I did two to gallon per hour emitters to




81

00:03:16,989 --> 00:03:19,189

each root ball and I find that's what




82

00:03:19,389 --> 00:03:21,140

they need here in our hot dry climate in




83

00:03:21,340 --> 00:03:23,539

fact we run our drips every single day




84

00:03:23,739 --> 00:03:25,460

for about an hour when the temperatures




85

00:03:25,659 --> 00:03:27,469

go above a hundred and that's what keeps




86

00:03:27,669 --> 00:03:29,240

them looking really really nice and




87

00:03:29,439 --> 00:03:31,189

you'll have to adjust that depending on




88

00:03:31,389 --> 00:03:33,890

your weather your region and kind of you




89

00:03:34,090 --> 00:03:35,570

know what they typically like and you




90

00:03:35,770 --> 00:03:36,920

can ask somebody at your local garden




91

00:03:37,120 --> 00:03:38,090

center and kind of get their




92

00:03:38,289 --> 00:03:40,130

recommendation for that if you notice




93

00:03:40,330 --> 00:03:42,020

your hydrangea blooms turning brown




94

00:03:42,219 --> 00:03:44,150

later in the summer rather than turning




95

00:03:44,349 --> 00:03:46,130

the color they're supposed to that means




96

00:03:46,330 --> 00:03:47,660

your hydrangea is not getting enough




97

00:03:47,860 --> 00:03:48,950

water so that's just something to be




98

00:03:49,150 --> 00:03:51,140

mindful of and I think this is going to




99

00:03:51,340 --> 00:03:53,390

be a glorious hedge of hydrangeas but I




100

00:03:53,590 --> 00:03:55,310

also feel that the fire light hydrogen




101

00:03:55,509 --> 00:03:57,349

would be a gorgeous specimen plant so if




102

00:03:57,549 --> 00:03:59,210

you don't have you know this much space




103

00:03:59,409 --> 00:04:01,219

to fill or you just want to have one to




104

00:04:01,419 --> 00:04:03,800

enjoy it's you know a big enough shrub




105

00:04:04,000 --> 00:04:06,110

that it'll look gorgeous but I do have a




106

00:04:06,310 --> 00:04:08,210

chart that's super handy that shows a




107

00:04:08,409 --> 00:04:09,439

whole bunch of different paniculata




108

00:04:09,639 --> 00:04:11,599

hydrangeas and what time of the year




109

00:04:11,799 --> 00:04:13,700

they start to bloom so you can see here




110

00:04:13,900 --> 00:04:15,829

in the very early category there's quick




111

00:04:16,029 --> 00:04:17,629

fire little quick fire bow bow and fire




112

00:04:17,829 --> 00:04:18,829

light and it shows kind of their




113

00:04:19,029 --> 00:04:20,658

different growth habits which is super




114

00:04:20,858 --> 00:04:22,730

helpful and then you've got your early




115

00:04:22,930 --> 00:04:24,650

category which is pinky-winky and then




116

00:04:24,850 --> 00:04:26,750

midseason bloomers are your Zinfandel




117

00:04:26,949 --> 00:04:29,028

little lime and lime light so that's it




118

00:04:29,228 --> 00:04:30,650

you guys hope you enjoyed seeing this




119

00:04:30,850 --> 00:04:32,689

henge come in and I hope you are going




120

00:04:32,889 --> 00:04:34,338

to enjoy the progress shots that will




121

00:04:34,538 --> 00:04:36,139

give you throughout the season because I




122

00:04:36,339 --> 00:04:38,210

think that is when it's gonna get really




123

00:04:38,410 --> 00:04:40,100

amazing thanks guys so much for watching




124

00:04:40,300 --> 00:04:41,569

this video and we will see you in the




125

00:04:41,769 --> 00:04:42,439

next one bye

1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,209

hey guys how's it going we're out of my




2

00:00:01,409 --> 00:00:02,738

parents house this morning working on a




3

00:00:02,939 --> 00:00:04,299

really fun project that I've been




4

00:00:04,500 --> 00:00:06,908

looking forward to for months and you




5

00:00:07,108 --> 00:00:08,830

guys might think that I do big projects




6

00:00:09,029 --> 00:00:12,550

check this out they just had 12 huge




7

00:00:12,750 --> 00:00:15,490

containers built and installed along




8

00:00:15,689 --> 00:00:17,230

their driveway in fact this has been a




9

00:00:17,429 --> 00:00:18,940

huge project this spring it's a really




10

00:00:19,140 --> 00:00:20,650

really fun one because all of my




11

00:00:20,850 --> 00:00:22,659

childhood years there was a little




12

00:00:22,859 --> 00:00:24,249

skinny driveway in fact you can see the




13

00:00:24,449 --> 00:00:25,269

wheel mark here




14

00:00:25,469 --> 00:00:27,399

it was very skinny he went to about here




15

00:00:27,599 --> 00:00:29,919

and then all the rest of this space was




16

00:00:30,118 --> 00:00:32,858

all ditch so there was just a big canal




17

00:00:33,058 --> 00:00:35,079

full of water right here so they had it




18

00:00:35,280 --> 00:00:37,390

piped and covered this spring and then




19

00:00:37,590 --> 00:00:39,820

lined with redpoint maples I think there




20

00:00:40,020 --> 00:00:42,669

are 14 redpoint maples in total this is




21

00:00:42,869 --> 00:00:44,049

the same type of maple that we used




22

00:00:44,250 --> 00:00:46,448

alongside our driveway and it's gonna be




23

00:00:46,649 --> 00:00:49,000

gorgeous because a beautiful red fall




24

00:00:49,200 --> 00:00:51,338

color and then of course the planters




25

00:00:51,539 --> 00:00:53,858

they make a huge statement and they're




26

00:00:54,058 --> 00:00:55,838

kind of modeled after the box planters




27

00:00:56,039 --> 00:00:57,669

you see in French garden he's kind of




28

00:00:57,869 --> 00:00:59,890

like Versailles they're a little bit




29

00:01:00,090 --> 00:01:01,358

more rustic though which i think is




30

00:01:01,558 --> 00:01:03,399

perfect because it goes with their




31

00:01:03,600 --> 00:01:05,829

country style home the other really fun




32

00:01:06,030 --> 00:01:08,109

thing are the plants that I get to use




33

00:01:08,310 --> 00:01:10,599

in this project we're not going to vary




34

00:01:10,799 --> 00:01:12,549

the type of plants I use very much




35

00:01:12,750 --> 00:01:14,738

because we get to try something that's




36

00:01:14,938 --> 00:01:17,259

brand new it's not even out yet because




37

00:01:17,459 --> 00:01:19,028

we work with proven winners on occasion




38

00:01:19,228 --> 00:01:21,609

we get to try out new plants and this is




39

00:01:21,810 --> 00:01:23,679

a new one next year called supertunia




40

00:01:23,879 --> 00:01:25,599

vista snowdrift and if you guys have




41

00:01:25,799 --> 00:01:28,000

ever grown any supertunia in the Vista




42

00:01:28,200 --> 00:01:29,469

line you will know what I'm talking




43

00:01:29,670 --> 00:01:31,209

about like supertunia vista bubblegum




44

00:01:31,409 --> 00:01:34,058

vista fuchsia vista silver berry they




45

00:01:34,259 --> 00:01:36,730

grow huge they are really really




46

00:01:36,930 --> 00:01:38,769

vigorous they have huge amount of bloom




47

00:01:38,969 --> 00:01:40,299

count on them all throughout this season




48

00:01:40,500 --> 00:01:41,918

and I think they're one of the best




49

00:01:42,118 --> 00:01:43,808

suited to go either in the landscape or




50

00:01:44,009 --> 00:01:45,308

in containers in fact I'm going to be




51

00:01:45,509 --> 00:01:46,599

putting some of these in the ground at




52

00:01:46,799 --> 00:01:48,308

my house and we'll be able to kind of




53

00:01:48,509 --> 00:01:50,619

see how they do you know in a container




54

00:01:50,819 --> 00:01:52,959

versus the landscape these I was doing a




55

00:01:53,159 --> 00:01:54,609

little reading on them have said that




56

00:01:54,810 --> 00:01:56,378

they can grow up to two feet tall and




57

00:01:56,578 --> 00:01:57,488

four feet wide




58

00:01:57,688 --> 00:02:00,668

one one supertunia vista snowdrift




59

00:02:00,868 --> 00:02:03,399

that's like a shrub which is amazing so




60

00:02:03,599 --> 00:02:05,619

I'm going to be putting eight of these




61

00:02:05,819 --> 00:02:07,000

in each of these containers which is




62

00:02:07,200 --> 00:02:08,439

probably a little much I could probably




63

00:02:08,639 --> 00:02:10,029

get away with just doing one on each




64

00:02:10,229 --> 00:02:12,610

side but there is an event happening in




65

00:02:12,810 --> 00:02:13,540

about a month at my




66

00:02:13,740 --> 00:02:14,710

parents house and we want to make sure




67

00:02:14,909 --> 00:02:16,210

that they're really full and they look




68

00:02:16,409 --> 00:02:18,040

really good for that so we're gonna use




69

00:02:18,240 --> 00:02:20,200

that primarily around the outside and




70

00:02:20,400 --> 00:02:22,360

then in the middle we're using a purple




71

00:02:22,560 --> 00:02:23,770

fountain grass and I think it's just




72

00:02:23,969 --> 00:02:25,689

gonna be a very striking contrast I




73

00:02:25,889 --> 00:02:27,250

think the white is gonna look really




74

00:02:27,449 --> 00:02:29,800

good up against this black rail fence




75

00:02:30,000 --> 00:02:31,719

right here this is the same color of




76

00:02:31,919 --> 00:02:33,130

stain that we use on our vegetable




77

00:02:33,330 --> 00:02:35,410

garden so it looks very pretty I think




78

00:02:35,610 --> 00:02:37,719

all the way down the fence is new it




79

00:02:37,919 --> 00:02:39,580

just looks so sharp there's a lot more




80

00:02:39,780 --> 00:02:41,320

room for parking and just a lot more




81

00:02:41,520 --> 00:02:42,700

breathing space out here




82

00:02:42,900 --> 00:02:45,070

so we've already one run drip to these




83

00:02:45,270 --> 00:02:46,689

containers and I wanted to talk on that




84

00:02:46,889 --> 00:02:48,730

a little bit because we recently showed




85

00:02:48,930 --> 00:02:51,700

you how we hooked our drip system up to




86

00:02:51,900 --> 00:02:54,219

our irrigation system that it's like in




87

00:02:54,419 --> 00:02:56,020

the ground and I want to show you this




88

00:02:56,219 --> 00:02:58,630

is hooked into a hose bib so there's a




89

00:02:58,830 --> 00:03:00,760

half inch black poly tube in fact you




90

00:03:00,960 --> 00:03:03,700

can see it right here they need to bring




91

00:03:03,900 --> 00:03:05,350

in a little more gravel to cover but




92

00:03:05,550 --> 00:03:07,060

there's a tube that runs the entire




93

00:03:07,259 --> 00:03:10,510

distance the entire run and then they




94

00:03:10,710 --> 00:03:12,880

tapped in with little couplers right




95

00:03:13,080 --> 00:03:15,700

here and there's a quarter inch solid




96

00:03:15,900 --> 00:03:18,310

black tube that runs up the side and it




97

00:03:18,509 --> 00:03:20,590

comes into the container right here you




98

00:03:20,789 --> 00:03:23,950

move my plants and then we've got five




99

00:03:24,150 --> 00:03:25,360

drippers and Erin and I worked on this




100

00:03:25,560 --> 00:03:26,980

little network of drippers this morning




101

00:03:27,180 --> 00:03:28,450

what we're planning on doing is having




102

00:03:28,650 --> 00:03:31,630

one one gallon per hour emitter in




103

00:03:31,830 --> 00:03:33,820

between each set of petunias kind of




104

00:03:34,020 --> 00:03:36,580

like this so there'll be two petunias




105

00:03:36,780 --> 00:03:39,460

two two two and then this one will point




106

00:03:39,659 --> 00:03:41,439

right to the root ball of the grass and




107

00:03:41,639 --> 00:03:42,880

we do have little stakes that will help




108

00:03:43,080 --> 00:03:44,439

once I get everything planted kind of




109

00:03:44,639 --> 00:03:46,960

just tack everything into place so let's




110

00:03:47,159 --> 00:03:48,580

run to the very far end because that's




111

00:03:48,780 --> 00:03:49,990

where it attaches to the hose and I'll




112

00:03:50,189 --> 00:03:52,150

show you how that looks so we're at the




113

00:03:52,349 --> 00:03:54,250

opposite end this is the last container




114

00:03:54,449 --> 00:03:56,170

and then in the corner is where they're




115

00:03:56,370 --> 00:03:58,390

attached to water in fact if you look




116

00:03:58,590 --> 00:04:00,100

over the fence right here you can see




117

00:04:00,300 --> 00:04:02,680

the ditch it's still open on this end we




118

00:04:02,879 --> 00:04:04,450

used to swim in that when we were little




119

00:04:04,650 --> 00:04:06,460

kids but now all the water goes to a




120

00:04:06,659 --> 00:04:08,230

great big pipe right underneath this




121

00:04:08,430 --> 00:04:12,040

hole Elaine so this hose bib right here




122

00:04:12,240 --> 00:04:14,500

is where all the water comes from for




123

00:04:14,699 --> 00:04:16,270

both the Maples and the containers




124

00:04:16,470 --> 00:04:17,770

there's a splitter right here which you




125

00:04:17,970 --> 00:04:19,538

can either use that or you can hook your




126

00:04:19,738 --> 00:04:21,699

timer right into your hose you don't




127

00:04:21,899 --> 00:04:23,050

even have to use a timer if you don't




128

00:04:23,250 --> 00:04:24,939

want to you can come out every day and




129

00:04:25,139 --> 00:04:26,410

turn the hose on and turn it off but the




130

00:04:26,610 --> 00:04:27,160

timer makes




131

00:04:27,360 --> 00:04:29,230

super-nice to where you don't have to do




132

00:04:29,430 --> 00:04:31,088

that this will make everything automatic




133

00:04:31,288 --> 00:04:33,249

and then there's a couple of parts here




134

00:04:33,449 --> 00:04:36,459

that cook onto your timer and then you




135

00:04:36,658 --> 00:04:37,838

can put your drip tubing right up into




136

00:04:38,038 --> 00:04:39,939

those parts one of these runs to the the




137

00:04:40,139 --> 00:04:41,949

red point maples and one runs to the




138

00:04:42,149 --> 00:04:44,139

containers at the amount of time that




139

00:04:44,339 --> 00:04:46,449

you run your containers it's kind of




140

00:04:46,649 --> 00:04:47,949

subjective to the time of year it is




141

00:04:48,149 --> 00:04:49,509

what the weather is like if it's real




142

00:04:49,709 --> 00:04:51,399

windy or not right now they could




143

00:04:51,598 --> 00:04:53,949

probably run these every other day or




144

00:04:54,149 --> 00:04:55,389

every two days to keep them happy




145

00:04:55,589 --> 00:04:57,399

because it's still pretty cool but when




146

00:04:57,598 --> 00:04:58,660

it gets really hot they'll be running




147

00:04:58,860 --> 00:04:59,379

them everyday




148

00:04:59,579 --> 00:05:00,790

so we'll probably start by running them




149

00:05:00,990 --> 00:05:02,439

for thirty minutes just to kind of gauge




150

00:05:02,639 --> 00:05:04,059

how much water comes out and how




151

00:05:04,259 --> 00:05:06,369

saturated the soil is and then we'll go




152

00:05:06,569 --> 00:05:06,939

from there




153

00:05:07,139 --> 00:05:08,480

so now let's start planting




154

00:05:08,680 --> 00:05:55,410

[Music]




155

00:05:57,959 --> 00:06:00,199

you guys I think that these are going to




156

00:06:00,399 --> 00:06:01,790

be absolutely gorgeous and you can




157

00:06:01,990 --> 00:06:03,520

already see them starting to take shape




158

00:06:03,720 --> 00:06:06,889

in purple fountain grass gets huge so




159

00:06:07,089 --> 00:06:08,930

it'll get these huge graceful plumes on




160

00:06:09,129 --> 00:06:11,210

the top and it will fill in beautifully




161

00:06:11,410 --> 00:06:12,949

and then with how this supertunia vistas




162

00:06:13,149 --> 00:06:14,810

snowdrift is supposed to grow I think




163

00:06:15,009 --> 00:06:16,730

we're gonna be in for like a super




164

00:06:16,930 --> 00:06:18,710

dramatic show maybe even all the way to




165

00:06:18,910 --> 00:06:21,800

the crown the kitty loves it and I think




166

00:06:22,000 --> 00:06:24,079

with the general design like if you look




167

00:06:24,279 --> 00:06:25,699

down the way and you see the line of




168

00:06:25,899 --> 00:06:27,680

trees in the line of containers I think




169

00:06:27,879 --> 00:06:30,920

going with just one one arrangement the




170

00:06:31,120 --> 00:06:32,329

same thing in every container will be a




171

00:06:32,529 --> 00:06:35,120

very striking effect and it won't you




172

00:06:35,319 --> 00:06:37,338

know jar your eyes too much and also




173

00:06:37,538 --> 00:06:38,960

just using two different plants instead




174

00:06:39,160 --> 00:06:40,400

of using you know a whole bunch of




175

00:06:40,600 --> 00:06:41,990

different colors in this one container




176

00:06:42,189 --> 00:06:44,449

and the other supertunia vistas that are




177

00:06:44,649 --> 00:06:46,009

available are all in the pink family




178

00:06:46,209 --> 00:06:47,509

which is great for me because I love




179

00:06:47,709 --> 00:06:49,400

pink I love to use those in fact I'm




180

00:06:49,600 --> 00:06:50,540

using a whole bunch of my garden this




181

00:06:50,740 --> 00:06:52,550

year but I was so excited to learn that




182

00:06:52,750 --> 00:06:54,020

there was a new one and that it was




183

00:06:54,220 --> 00:06:56,149

white because I do think I could have a




184

00:06:56,348 --> 00:06:58,430

garden completely full of green like




185

00:06:58,629 --> 00:07:00,468

shades of green foliage with white




186

00:07:00,668 --> 00:07:02,870

blooms and I would be happy with that so




187

00:07:03,069 --> 00:07:05,480

when I planted these I did add in some




188

00:07:05,680 --> 00:07:07,160

of this continuous release plant food




189

00:07:07,360 --> 00:07:09,230

like I do in all my containers I think I




190

00:07:09,430 --> 00:07:11,600

added about between 8 and 10 tablespoons




191

00:07:11,800 --> 00:07:13,910

and just mixed it into about the top




192

00:07:14,110 --> 00:07:16,430

couple inches of soil with plants like




193

00:07:16,629 --> 00:07:18,620

this that are huge huge performers they




194

00:07:18,819 --> 00:07:20,180

are really hungry plants they need a lot




195

00:07:20,379 --> 00:07:22,460

of food to perform the best so I always




196

00:07:22,660 --> 00:07:24,199

start with that and then I'm actually




197

00:07:24,399 --> 00:07:26,540

gonna give my parents a tub of this this




198

00:07:26,740 --> 00:07:27,980

is what I use in my containers on a




199

00:07:28,180 --> 00:07:30,170

weekly basis at home so they'll be




200

00:07:30,370 --> 00:07:31,910

feeding these plants every single week




201

00:07:32,110 --> 00:07:34,399

with a water soluble and that will keep




202

00:07:34,598 --> 00:07:36,588

them very happy and full of bloom so




203

00:07:36,788 --> 00:07:38,600

anyway that is it for this video I was




204

00:07:38,800 --> 00:07:40,278

just so excited to show you this brand




205

00:07:40,478 --> 00:07:41,930

new plant again it's not out this year




206

00:07:42,129 --> 00:07:43,910

this is gonna be brand new next year I'm




207

00:07:44,110 --> 00:07:45,319

so I'm really excited to show you guys




208

00:07:45,519 --> 00:07:47,060

progress updates throughout this season




209

00:07:47,259 --> 00:07:48,680

to see what it looks like because maybe




210

00:07:48,879 --> 00:07:49,850

this is something you'll want to add




211

00:07:50,050 --> 00:07:52,040

into your garden next year so anyway




212

00:07:52,240 --> 00:07:53,028

thank you guys so much for watching




213

00:07:53,228 --> 00:07:54,528

214

00:07:54,728 --> 00:07:55,350

1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,209

hey guys how's it going we're out of my




2

00:00:01,409 --> 00:00:02,738

parents house this morning working on a




3

00:00:02,939 --> 00:00:04,299

really fun project that I've been




4

00:00:04,500 --> 00:00:06,908

looking forward to for months and you




5

00:00:07,108 --> 00:00:08,830

guys might think that I do big projects




6

00:00:09,029 --> 00:00:12,550

check this out they just had 12 huge




7

00:00:12,750 --> 00:00:15,490

containers built and installed along




8

00:00:15,689 --> 00:00:17,230

their driveway in fact this has been a




9

00:00:17,429 --> 00:00:18,940

huge project this spring it's a really




10

00:00:19,140 --> 00:00:20,650

really fun one because all of my




11

00:00:20,850 --> 00:00:22,659

childhood years there was a little




12

00:00:22,859 --> 00:00:24,249

skinny driveway in fact you can see the




13

00:00:24,449 --> 00:00:25,269

wheel mark here




14

00:00:25,469 --> 00:00:27,399

it was very skinny he went to about here




15

00:00:27,599 --> 00:00:29,919

and then all the rest of this space was




16

00:00:30,118 --> 00:00:32,858

all ditch so there was just a big canal




17

00:00:33,058 --> 00:00:35,079

full of water right here so they had it




18

00:00:35,280 --> 00:00:37,390

piped and covered this spring and then




19

00:00:37,590 --> 00:00:39,820

lined with redpoint maples I think there




20

00:00:40,020 --> 00:00:42,669

are 14 redpoint maples in total this is




21

00:00:42,869 --> 00:00:44,049

the same type of maple that we used




22

00:00:44,250 --> 00:00:46,448

alongside our driveway and it's gonna be




23

00:00:46,649 --> 00:00:49,000

gorgeous because a beautiful red fall




24

00:00:49,200 --> 00:00:51,338

color and then of course the planters




25

00:00:51,539 --> 00:00:53,858

they make a huge statement and they're




26

00:00:54,058 --> 00:00:55,838

kind of modeled after the box planters




27

00:00:56,039 --> 00:00:57,669

you see in French garden he's kind of




28

00:00:57,869 --> 00:00:59,890

like Versailles they're a little bit




29

00:01:00,090 --> 00:01:01,358

more rustic though which i think is




30

00:01:01,558 --> 00:01:03,399

perfect because it goes with their




31

00:01:03,600 --> 00:01:05,829

country style home the other really fun




32

00:01:06,030 --> 00:01:08,109

thing are the plants that I get to use




33

00:01:08,310 --> 00:01:10,599

in this project we're not going to vary




34

00:01:10,799 --> 00:01:12,549

the type of plants I use very much




35

00:01:12,750 --> 00:01:14,738

because we get to try something that's




36

00:01:14,938 --> 00:01:17,259

brand new it's not even out yet because




37

00:01:17,459 --> 00:01:19,028

we work with proven winners on occasion




38

00:01:19,228 --> 00:01:21,609

we get to try out new plants and this is




39

00:01:21,810 --> 00:01:23,679

a new one next year called supertunia




40

00:01:23,879 --> 00:01:25,599

vista snowdrift and if you guys have




41

00:01:25,799 --> 00:01:28,000

ever grown any supertunia in the Vista




42

00:01:28,200 --> 00:01:29,469

line you will know what I'm talking




43

00:01:29,670 --> 00:01:31,209

about like supertunia vista bubblegum




44

00:01:31,409 --> 00:01:34,058

vista fuchsia vista silver berry they




45

00:01:34,259 --> 00:01:36,730

grow huge they are really really




46

00:01:36,930 --> 00:01:38,769

vigorous they have huge amount of bloom




47

00:01:38,969 --> 00:01:40,299

count on them all throughout this season




48

00:01:40,500 --> 00:01:41,918

and I think they're one of the best




49

00:01:42,118 --> 00:01:43,808

suited to go either in the landscape or




50

00:01:44,009 --> 00:01:45,308

in containers in fact I'm going to be




51

00:01:45,509 --> 00:01:46,599

putting some of these in the ground at




52

00:01:46,799 --> 00:01:48,308

my house and we'll be able to kind of




53

00:01:48,509 --> 00:01:50,619

see how they do you know in a container




54

00:01:50,819 --> 00:01:52,959

versus the landscape these I was doing a




55

00:01:53,159 --> 00:01:54,609

little reading on them have said that




56

00:01:54,810 --> 00:01:56,378

they can grow up to two feet tall and




57

00:01:56,578 --> 00:01:57,488

four feet wide




58

00:01:57,688 --> 00:02:00,668

one one supertunia vista snowdrift




59

00:02:00,868 --> 00:02:03,399

that's like a shrub which is amazing so




60

00:02:03,599 --> 00:02:05,619

I'm going to be putting eight of these




61

00:02:05,819 --> 00:02:07,000

in each of these containers which is




62

00:02:07,200 --> 00:02:08,439

probably a little much I could probably




63

00:02:08,639 --> 00:02:10,029

get away with just doing one on each




64

00:02:10,229 --> 00:02:12,610

side but there is an event happening in




65

00:02:12,810 --> 00:02:13,540

about a month at my




66

00:02:13,740 --> 00:02:14,710

parents house and we want to make sure




67

00:02:14,909 --> 00:02:16,210

that they're really full and they look




68

00:02:16,409 --> 00:02:18,040

really good for that so we're gonna use




69

00:02:18,240 --> 00:02:20,200

that primarily around the outside and




70

00:02:20,400 --> 00:02:22,360

then in the middle we're using a purple




71

00:02:22,560 --> 00:02:23,770

fountain grass and I think it's just




72

00:02:23,969 --> 00:02:25,689

gonna be a very striking contrast I




73

00:02:25,889 --> 00:02:27,250

think the white is gonna look really




74

00:02:27,449 --> 00:02:29,800

good up against this black rail fence




75

00:02:30,000 --> 00:02:31,719

right here this is the same color of




76

00:02:31,919 --> 00:02:33,130

stain that we use on our vegetable




77

00:02:33,330 --> 00:02:35,410

garden so it looks very pretty I think




78

00:02:35,610 --> 00:02:37,719

all the way down the fence is new it




79

00:02:37,919 --> 00:02:39,580

just looks so sharp there's a lot more




80

00:02:39,780 --> 00:02:41,320

room for parking and just a lot more




81

00:02:41,520 --> 00:02:42,700

breathing space out here




82

00:02:42,900 --> 00:02:45,070

so we've already one run drip to these




83

00:02:45,270 --> 00:02:46,689

containers and I wanted to talk on that




84

00:02:46,889 --> 00:02:48,730

a little bit because we recently showed




85

00:02:48,930 --> 00:02:51,700

you how we hooked our drip system up to




86

00:02:51,900 --> 00:02:54,219

our irrigation system that it's like in




87

00:02:54,419 --> 00:02:56,020

the ground and I want to show you this




88

00:02:56,219 --> 00:02:58,630

is hooked into a hose bib so there's a




89

00:02:58,830 --> 00:03:00,760

half inch black poly tube in fact you




90

00:03:00,960 --> 00:03:03,700

can see it right here they need to bring




91

00:03:03,900 --> 00:03:05,350

in a little more gravel to cover but




92

00:03:05,550 --> 00:03:07,060

there's a tube that runs the entire




93

00:03:07,259 --> 00:03:10,510

distance the entire run and then they




94

00:03:10,710 --> 00:03:12,880

tapped in with little couplers right




95

00:03:13,080 --> 00:03:15,700

here and there's a quarter inch solid




96

00:03:15,900 --> 00:03:18,310

black tube that runs up the side and it




97

00:03:18,509 --> 00:03:20,590

comes into the container right here you




98

00:03:20,789 --> 00:03:23,950

move my plants and then we've got five




99

00:03:24,150 --> 00:03:25,360

drippers and Erin and I worked on this




100

00:03:25,560 --> 00:03:26,980

little network of drippers this morning




101

00:03:27,180 --> 00:03:28,450

what we're planning on doing is having




102

00:03:28,650 --> 00:03:31,630

one one gallon per hour emitter in




103

00:03:31,830 --> 00:03:33,820

between each set of petunias kind of




104

00:03:34,020 --> 00:03:36,580

like this so there'll be two petunias




105

00:03:36,780 --> 00:03:39,460

two two two and then this one will point




106

00:03:39,659 --> 00:03:41,439

right to the root ball of the grass and




107

00:03:41,639 --> 00:03:42,880

we do have little stakes that will help




108

00:03:43,080 --> 00:03:44,439

once I get everything planted kind of




109

00:03:44,639 --> 00:03:46,960

just tack everything into place so let's




110

00:03:47,159 --> 00:03:48,580

run to the very far end because that's




111

00:03:48,780 --> 00:03:49,990

where it attaches to the hose and I'll




112

00:03:50,189 --> 00:03:52,150

show you how that looks so we're at the




113

00:03:52,349 --> 00:03:54,250

opposite end this is the last container




114

00:03:54,449 --> 00:03:56,170

and then in the corner is where they're




115

00:03:56,370 --> 00:03:58,390

attached to water in fact if you look




116

00:03:58,590 --> 00:04:00,100

over the fence right here you can see




117

00:04:00,300 --> 00:04:02,680

the ditch it's still open on this end we




118

00:04:02,879 --> 00:04:04,450

used to swim in that when we were little




119

00:04:04,650 --> 00:04:06,460

kids but now all the water goes to a




120

00:04:06,659 --> 00:04:08,230

great big pipe right underneath this




121

00:04:08,430 --> 00:04:12,040

hole Elaine so this hose bib right here




122

00:04:12,240 --> 00:04:14,500

is where all the water comes from for




123

00:04:14,699 --> 00:04:16,270

both the Maples and the containers




124

00:04:16,470 --> 00:04:17,770

there's a splitter right here which you




125

00:04:17,970 --> 00:04:19,538

can either use that or you can hook your




126

00:04:19,738 --> 00:04:21,699

timer right into your hose you don't




127

00:04:21,899 --> 00:04:23,050

even have to use a timer if you don't




128

00:04:23,250 --> 00:04:24,939

want to you can come out every day and




129

00:04:25,139 --> 00:04:26,410

turn the hose on and turn it off but the




130

00:04:26,610 --> 00:04:27,160

timer makes




131

00:04:27,360 --> 00:04:29,230

super-nice to where you don't have to do




132

00:04:29,430 --> 00:04:31,088

that this will make everything automatic




133

00:04:31,288 --> 00:04:33,249

and then there's a couple of parts here




134

00:04:33,449 --> 00:04:36,459

that cook onto your timer and then you




135

00:04:36,658 --> 00:04:37,838

can put your drip tubing right up into




136

00:04:38,038 --> 00:04:39,939

those parts one of these runs to the the




137

00:04:40,139 --> 00:04:41,949

red point maples and one runs to the




138

00:04:42,149 --> 00:04:44,139

containers at the amount of time that




139

00:04:44,339 --> 00:04:46,449

you run your containers it's kind of




140

00:04:46,649 --> 00:04:47,949

subjective to the time of year it is




141

00:04:48,149 --> 00:04:49,509

what the weather is like if it's real




142

00:04:49,709 --> 00:04:51,399

windy or not right now they could




143

00:04:51,598 --> 00:04:53,949

probably run these every other day or




144

00:04:54,149 --> 00:04:55,389

every two days to keep them happy




145

00:04:55,589 --> 00:04:57,399

because it's still pretty cool but when




146

00:04:57,598 --> 00:04:58,660

it gets really hot they'll be running




147

00:04:58,860 --> 00:04:59,379

them everyday




148

00:04:59,579 --> 00:05:00,790

so we'll probably start by running them




149

00:05:00,990 --> 00:05:02,439

for thirty minutes just to kind of gauge




150

00:05:02,639 --> 00:05:04,059

how much water comes out and how




151

00:05:04,259 --> 00:05:06,369

saturated the soil is and then we'll go




152

00:05:06,569 --> 00:05:06,939

from there




153

00:05:07,139 --> 00:05:08,480

so now let's start planting




154

00:05:08,680 --> 00:05:55,410

[Music]




155

00:05:57,959 --> 00:06:00,199

you guys I think that these are going to




156

00:06:00,399 --> 00:06:01,790

be absolutely gorgeous and you can




157

00:06:01,990 --> 00:06:03,520

already see them starting to take shape




158

00:06:03,720 --> 00:06:06,889

in purple fountain grass gets huge so




159

00:06:07,089 --> 00:06:08,930

it'll get these huge graceful plumes on




160

00:06:09,129 --> 00:06:11,210

the top and it will fill in beautifully




161

00:06:11,410 --> 00:06:12,949

and then with how this supertunia vistas




162

00:06:13,149 --> 00:06:14,810

snowdrift is supposed to grow I think




163

00:06:15,009 --> 00:06:16,730

we're gonna be in for like a super




164

00:06:16,930 --> 00:06:18,710

dramatic show maybe even all the way to




165

00:06:18,910 --> 00:06:21,800

the crown the kitty loves it and I think




166

00:06:22,000 --> 00:06:24,079

with the general design like if you look




167

00:06:24,279 --> 00:06:25,699

down the way and you see the line of




168

00:06:25,899 --> 00:06:27,680

trees in the line of containers I think




169

00:06:27,879 --> 00:06:30,920

going with just one one arrangement the




170

00:06:31,120 --> 00:06:32,329

same thing in every container will be a




171

00:06:32,529 --> 00:06:35,120

very striking effect and it won't you




172

00:06:35,319 --> 00:06:37,338

know jar your eyes too much and also




173

00:06:37,538 --> 00:06:38,960

just using two different plants instead




174

00:06:39,160 --> 00:06:40,400

of using you know a whole bunch of




175

00:06:40,600 --> 00:06:41,990

different colors in this one container




176

00:06:42,189 --> 00:06:44,449

and the other supertunia vistas that are




177

00:06:44,649 --> 00:06:46,009

available are all in the pink family




178

00:06:46,209 --> 00:06:47,509

which is great for me because I love




179

00:06:47,709 --> 00:06:49,400

pink I love to use those in fact I'm




180

00:06:49,600 --> 00:06:50,540

using a whole bunch of my garden this




181

00:06:50,740 --> 00:06:52,550

year but I was so excited to learn that




182

00:06:52,750 --> 00:06:54,020

there was a new one and that it was




183

00:06:54,220 --> 00:06:56,149

white because I do think I could have a




184

00:06:56,348 --> 00:06:58,430

garden completely full of green like




185

00:06:58,629 --> 00:07:00,468

shades of green foliage with white




186

00:07:00,668 --> 00:07:02,870

blooms and I would be happy with that so




187

00:07:03,069 --> 00:07:05,480

when I planted these I did add in some




188

00:07:05,680 --> 00:07:07,160

of this continuous release plant food




189

00:07:07,360 --> 00:07:09,230

like I do in all my containers I think I




190

00:07:09,430 --> 00:07:11,600

added about between 8 and 10 tablespoons




191

00:07:11,800 --> 00:07:13,910

and just mixed it into about the top




192

00:07:14,110 --> 00:07:16,430

couple inches of soil with plants like




193

00:07:16,629 --> 00:07:18,620

this that are huge huge performers they




194

00:07:18,819 --> 00:07:20,180

are really hungry plants they need a lot




195

00:07:20,379 --> 00:07:22,460

of food to perform the best so I always




196

00:07:22,660 --> 00:07:24,199

start with that and then I'm actually




197

00:07:24,399 --> 00:07:26,540

gonna give my parents a tub of this this




198

00:07:26,740 --> 00:07:27,980

is what I use in my containers on a




199

00:07:28,180 --> 00:07:30,170

weekly basis at home so they'll be




200

00:07:30,370 --> 00:07:31,910

feeding these plants every single week




201

00:07:32,110 --> 00:07:34,399

with a water soluble and that will keep




202

00:07:34,598 --> 00:07:36,588

them very happy and full of bloom so




203

00:07:36,788 --> 00:07:38,600

anyway that is it for this video I was




204

00:07:38,800 --> 00:07:40,278

just so excited to show you this brand




205

00:07:40,478 --> 00:07:41,930

new plant again it's not out this year




206

00:07:42,129 --> 00:07:43,910

this is gonna be brand new next year I'm




207

00:07:44,110 --> 00:07:45,319

so I'm really excited to show you guys




208

00:07:45,519 --> 00:07:47,060

progress updates throughout this season




209

00:07:47,259 --> 00:07:48,680

to see what it looks like because maybe




210

00:07:48,879 --> 00:07:49,850

this is something you'll want to add




211

00:07:50,050 --> 00:07:52,040

into your garden next year so anyway




212

00:07:52,240 --> 00:07:53,028

thank you guys so much for watching




213

00:07:53,228 --> 00:07:54,528

today and we will see you in the next




214

00:07:54,728 --> 00:07:55,350

one bye

hey guys how's it going today I'm




planting up my window boxes here on this




side of our house and I've got it kind




of laid out how I want it to look




nothing's planted yet they're all still




in their cans but I think it's gonna be




amazing so I just want to go through all




of the plants real quick and then we'll




actually get them in the window baskets




and see how it really looks all kind of




intermingled together so first off I




want to go through the plants that are




gonna be kind of sitting toward the back




of the window box I've got several who




Kuras here these are called wild berry




there is own four through nine perennial




actually I have a spot in my yard picked




out that I want to plant where I want to




plant these so I can use them in the




window boxes and then plant them out




this fall and I love to do that because




then I don't feel so bad




jamming my pots so full of stuff when I




get to use them again so these grow




about 10 14 inches tall and then they'll




spaced out probably in the landscape




about 18 or so inches and then they




throw up these really pretty bloom




spikes so like really pretty dark purple




stem with kind of these creamy pink




flowers and you can kind of see him




sticking up from all the hookers there




I've got four of these total in between




each heuchera




I'm going to plant a Carrick's called




Amazon mist




now Carrick's like this they can do full




Sun they can also do a little bit of




shade and this area actually gets a




pretty strong block of Morning Sun like




first thing it's pretty quick like maybe




two hours or so then the rest of the day




it's in shade but I find that Carrick's




like this does pretty well it won't grow




enormous it'll just kind of sit looking




like this all summer long which is




perfectly fine with me because I don't




really like to plant my window boxes




with super tall things because I like to




have the view but most especially this




grass has amazing mint green color which




looks beautiful I mean look at it in




between those who grows it's just




absolutely perfect gorgeous and then




lining around kind of the front area




here I've got several ivy I think




there's one two three four five ivy




called duck foot and it's got this




really neat kind of Stickley lobed leave




leaf instead of being really pointy like




some of your Ivy's might be this is also




a perennial so the Ivy's I don't




typically plant in the ground I just




save them over in our cold frame and




then I'll




in containers next year then we've got




some surefire rose begonias which we




just posted a video recently where we




planted a whole bunch of these




underneath our Chinese rain tree and I'm




really looking forward to having this




won't be the really the only flower




color in this arrangement all the rest




of it it's pretty much foliage I mean




the heuchera has flowers but they're




fairly small so this will be our big pop




of color and then this might be the one




I'm most excited about this is a coleus




called chocolate drop and it's instead




of being strictly upright it will




actually trail out of a container so




I've planted I'm gonna put let's see




I've planned to put four in here so they




can kind of just fill in and spill down




the front




I love the leaf on this one look how




interesting that is and I think that the




color on the interior interior of the




leaf will look really pretty with this




heuchera right here so that is the




lineup of plants so now I'm going to




take them all out I'm going to take part




of the soil while most of the soil out




from last year I still have that in this




box will get fresh stuff in some fruit




fertilizer and then we'll plant




[Music]




[Music]




I think it turned out so pretty and it




is chock-full of plants like when I got




to the last round with these Chocolate




Drops sedum I thought oh should I




squeeze those in there should I just




hold off but I think it's such a




beautiful addition and I was so excited




about using the plant that I just went




ahead and found some room and I'm not




really concerned about putting things so




close together in a shade container not




like I would be with a full Sun




container when we plant supertunias in




purple fountain grass and vertigo




Pennisetum those kind of things need a




ton of room to grow but I don't expect




really like the heuchera and the




kerrick's won't put on a whole lot more




growth they'll stay pretty much the same




size the begonias may push a little




growth if they were in more Sun they




would probably get a little bit bigger




so I'm really not that concerned I think




all of this pillars will put on growth




downward which is great you know but




we'll see as the season goes I did put




fresh soil in with slow release




fertilizer and these will be fertilized




on a probably once a week to every ten




day schedule




I don't water these quite as often as I




do my son containers so I just kind of I




don't do them quite as consistently with




my full Sun containers we want fertilize




every week without fail




so this one's done now I've got the




second one to go




[Music]




the second box is planted and I love




love how they look all of the plants are




just so pretty together and you know




they're surefire Rose begonia the pop of




pink in here is really pretty but I




honestly think that I would enjoy this




arrangement just as much without the




bloom color because there's so many




different colors and textures in just




the leaves that I think it makes it




really interesting and I do think I




called this chocolate drop coleus a




sedum earlier I don't know what I was




thinking I might have been thinking




lemon coral sedum lemon and chocolate




and I don't know but it's definitely a




coleus but I think that that is such a




beautiful touch especially right




underneath the heuchera so I did water




them in from overhead today just to make




sure all their root balls were settled




into their new homes but we do have a




drip system setup Erin and I set it up




earlier on this spring so there are five




half gallon and our emitters spread




evenly throughout this box so unless I'm




fertilizing I shouldn't have to bring




any water up here which is awesome these




plants are also very low maintenance the




only thing I'll probably do every once




in a while is come in and groom off any




spent bloom heads so any of these spikes




of blooms that are spent I'll clip off




down here below like the leaf canopy and




then the Surefire Rose begonia I




shouldn't I don't need to deadhead it




will keep blooming even if you don't




deadhead it but aesthetically I like the




way it looks when they're all cleaned up




so now I want to kind of back up and




take a look at the rest of the patio




area there's not a whole lot going on




for summer yet except for the window




boxes but it kind of just like inspires




me makes me want to keep adding more




pretty things I have these containers by




the door with the boxwood cones that




wintered over in here and then my




pansies from earlier this spring they're




still looking really sweet so I'll




probably keep them in here for a little




while until I decide what I even want to




put in these pots I might play around




with a little bit more foliage texture




and color like maybe more Chocolate




Drops sedum and some Goldilocks creeping




Jenny something like that I'm just not




sure yet and then you can see our drip




system right here so we had to run it




from the other side of the house and




there's no water source over on this




other side so we had to run it along the




ground so I do still need to order a rug




to put right in front of the door so we




can kind of tuck in all this tubing and




you won't see that anymore




and it'll look a little bit more




polished up here but I think this is a




wonderful start for summer I hope you




guys enjoyed this video I really loved




putting these together we will see you




in the next one bye

called chocolate drop and it's instead




of being strictly upright it will




actually trail out of a container so




I've planted I'm gonna put let's see




I've planned to put four in here so they




can kind of just fill in and spill down




the front




I love the leaf on this one look how




interesting that is and I think that the




color on the interior interior of the




leaf will look really pretty with this




heuchera right here so that is the




lineup of plants so now I'm going to




take them all out I'm going to take part




of the soil while most of the soil out




from last year I still have that in this




box will get fresh stuff in some fruit




fertilizer and then we'll plant




[Music]




[Music]




I think it turned out so pretty and it




is chock-full of plants like when I got




to the last round with these Chocolate




Drops sedum I thought oh should I




squeeze those in there should I just




hold off but I think it's such a




beautiful addition and I was so excited




about using the plant that I just went




ahead and found some room and I'm not




really concerned about putting things so




close together in a shade container not




like I would be with a full Sun




container when we plant supertunias in




purple fountain grass and vertigo




Pennisetum those kind of things need a




ton of room to grow but I don't expect




really like the heuchera and the




kerrick's won't put on a whole lot more




growth they'll stay pretty much the same




size the begonias may push a little




growth if they were in more Sun they




would probably get a little bit bigger




so I'm really not that concerned I think




all of this pillars will put on growth




downward which is great you know but




we'll see as the season goes I did put




fresh soil in with slow release




fertilizer and these will be fertilized




on a probably once a week to every ten




day schedule




I don't water these quite as often as I




do my son containers so I just kind of I




don't do them quite as consistently with




my full Sun containers we want fertilize




every week without fail




so this one's done now I've got the




second one to go




[Music]




the second box is planted and I love




love how they look all of the plants are




just so pretty together and you know




they're surefire Rose begonia the pop of




pink in here is really pretty but I




honestly think that I would enjoy this




arrangement just as much without the




bloom color because there's so many




different colors and textures in just




the leaves that I think it makes it




really interesting and I do think I




called this chocolate drop coleus a




sedum earlier I don't know what I was




thinking I might have been thinking




lemon coral sedum lemon and chocolate




and I don't know but it's definitely a




coleus but I think that that is such a




beautiful touch especially right




underneath the heuchera so I did water




them in from overhead today just to make




sure all their root balls were settled




into their new homes but we do have a




drip system setup Erin and I set it up




earlier on this spring so there are five




half gallon and our emitters spread




evenly throughout this box so unless I'm




fertilizing I shouldn't have to bring




any water up here which is awesome these




plants are also very low maintenance the




only thing I'll probably do every once




in a while is come in and groom off any




spent bloom heads so any of these spikes




of blooms that are spent I'll clip off




down here below like the leaf canopy and




then the Surefire Rose begonia I




shouldn't I don't need to deadhead it




will keep blooming even if you don't




deadhead it but aesthetically I like the




way it looks when they're all cleaned up




so now I want to kind of back up and




take a look at the rest of the patio




area there's not a whole lot going on




for summer yet except for the window




boxes but it kind of just like inspires




me makes me want to keep adding more




pretty things I have these containers by




the door with the boxwood cones that




wintered over in here and then my




pansies from earlier this spring they're




still looking really sweet so I'll




probably keep them in here for a little




while until I decide what I even want to




put in these pots I might play around




with a little bit more foliage texture




and color like maybe more Chocolate




Drops sedum and some Goldilocks creeping




Jenny something like that I'm just not




sure yet and then you can see our drip




system right here so we had to run it




from the other side of the house and




there's no water source over on this




other side so we had to run it along the




ground so I do still need to order a rug




to put right in front of the door so we




can kind of tuck in all this tubing and




you won't see that anymore




and it'll look a little bit more




polished up here but I think this is a




wonderful start for summer I hope you




guys enjoyed this video I really loved




putting these together we will see you




in the next one bye

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,389

hey guys how's it going we're in front




2

00:00:01,589 --> 00:00:02,619

of the chicken coop this morning getting




3

00:00:02,819 --> 00:00:04,750

ready to do some planting the coop is




4

00:00:04,950 --> 00:00:07,240

pretty much done on the outside anyway




5

00:00:07,440 --> 00:00:08,710

just got the shutters and stove




6

00:00:08,910 --> 00:00:10,390

yesterday and it's looking a little bit




7

00:00:10,589 --> 00:00:12,910

more put together now I do have two




8

00:00:13,109 --> 00:00:15,040

serbian spruces here on either side of




9

00:00:15,240 --> 00:00:16,990

the coop and that's going to be kind of




10

00:00:17,190 --> 00:00:19,570

my grounding formality for this area and




11

00:00:19,769 --> 00:00:21,400

I was kind of like thinking should I do




12

00:00:21,600 --> 00:00:23,710

more boxwood hedging but I think what I




13

00:00:23,910 --> 00:00:25,600

want to do is keep this area a little




14

00:00:25,800 --> 00:00:27,999

bit more free and full of color so I




15

00:00:28,199 --> 00:00:29,530

thought I'd be a really fun thing to




16

00:00:29,730 --> 00:00:30,699

show you guys some of the plants I'm




17

00:00:30,899 --> 00:00:32,288

putting in because I talked about




18

00:00:32,488 --> 00:00:33,939

recipes and containers all the time like




19

00:00:34,140 --> 00:00:35,469

what plants to put together that look




20

00:00:35,670 --> 00:00:36,878

really good together and that are




21

00:00:37,079 --> 00:00:39,399

compatible so I want to do that today




22

00:00:39,600 --> 00:00:40,869

showing you some really great things




23

00:00:41,070 --> 00:00:42,869

that attract butterflies in particular




24

00:00:43,070 --> 00:00:45,399

so we are gonna be planting salvia




25

00:00:45,600 --> 00:00:48,159

echinacea and dahlias I do want to talk




26

00:00:48,359 --> 00:00:49,599

to you about each one of the plants so




27

00:00:49,799 --> 00:00:51,070

let's get set up and then we can talk




28

00:00:51,270 --> 00:00:52,779

about them so the first one is called




29

00:00:52,979 --> 00:00:54,759

delightful lively lavender and you guys




30

00:00:54,960 --> 00:00:56,320

might remember I planted the mystic




31

00:00:56,520 --> 00:00:57,849

illusion Dahlia last year which has




32

00:00:58,049 --> 00:00:59,649

really dark foliage and really bright




33

00:00:59,850 --> 00:01:01,959

yellow flowers they performed so well




34

00:01:02,159 --> 00:01:04,539

I'm really excited to give this variety




35

00:01:04,739 --> 00:01:06,369

a try and I love the color of the




36

00:01:06,569 --> 00:01:09,369

flowers so this one grows about 2 to 3




37

00:01:09,569 --> 00:01:11,469

feet tall and about 20 inches wide and I




38

00:01:11,670 --> 00:01:12,909

did look on the tag they recommend




39

00:01:13,109 --> 00:01:15,039

spacing about like 12 to 16 inches so I




40

00:01:15,239 --> 00:01:17,049

did put him quite close together but




41

00:01:17,250 --> 00:01:18,519

honestly of the 3 I'm going to show you




42

00:01:18,719 --> 00:01:20,109

today I think you could just do one of




43

00:01:20,310 --> 00:01:21,640

each in a little space like maybe buy a




44

00:01:21,840 --> 00:01:24,159

mailbox or tucked into a sunny spot in




45

00:01:24,359 --> 00:01:25,929

your landscape and you would get kind of




46

00:01:26,129 --> 00:01:27,340

the same effect you would get all the




47

00:01:27,540 --> 00:01:29,289

color and the pollinator attracting




48

00:01:29,489 --> 00:01:32,109

quality so I think I've got 6 or so




49

00:01:32,310 --> 00:01:33,849

right back in here the cool thing too




50

00:01:34,049 --> 00:01:35,349

about these dahlias is that they don't




51

00:01:35,549 --> 00:01:37,299

form they were bred to not form tubers




52

00:01:37,500 --> 00:01:40,058

they may form a few but they won't form




53

00:01:40,259 --> 00:01:41,590

them like a normal Dahlia will which




54

00:01:41,790 --> 00:01:43,238

means you get earlier blooms in the




55

00:01:43,438 --> 00:01:45,278

season so they'll start blooming really




56

00:01:45,478 --> 00:01:46,750

early and then they'll bloom all the way




57

00:01:46,950 --> 00:01:48,039

through frost because all of their




58

00:01:48,239 --> 00:01:49,899

energy gets sent into bloom production




59

00:01:50,099 --> 00:01:51,969

you also don't have to deadhead them you




60

00:01:52,170 --> 00:01:54,399

can I tend to like to do that because it




61

00:01:54,599 --> 00:01:55,808

makes them look a little bit better it




62

00:01:56,009 --> 00:01:58,149

will help them rebloom a little bit more




63

00:01:58,349 --> 00:02:00,518

but it's not 100% necessary they still




64

00:02:00,718 --> 00:02:03,099

will keep blooming and their foliage is




65

00:02:03,299 --> 00:02:04,959

resistant to disease which I know that




66

00:02:05,159 --> 00:02:06,579

can be a problem like powdery mildew and




67

00:02:06,780 --> 00:02:08,710

things like that in some areas the next




68

00:02:08,909 --> 00:02:10,539

flower are these beautiful bright yellow




69

00:02:10,739 --> 00:02:12,390

echinacea they're called yellow mite




70

00:02:12,590 --> 00:02:14,580

they're actually new next year this




71

00:02:14,780 --> 00:02:17,069

particular variety I was able to get my




72

00:02:17,269 --> 00:02:18,450

hands on a few of them to try them out




73

00:02:18,650 --> 00:02:20,069

my garden to see how they grew and how




74

00:02:20,269 --> 00:02:21,990

they did I think it's gonna be beautiful




75

00:02:22,189 --> 00:02:24,210

up here with this layer of bright pink




76

00:02:24,409 --> 00:02:25,770

and then the sunshine yellow it's gonna




77

00:02:25,969 --> 00:02:28,350

be so happy these are a perennial I




78

00:02:28,550 --> 00:02:29,520

don't think I mentioned that these are




79

00:02:29,719 --> 00:02:32,099

an annual these are Hardy to zone 8 so




80

00:02:32,299 --> 00:02:33,420

they might be a perennial for some of




81

00:02:33,620 --> 00:02:35,580

you but these are winter hardy down to




82

00:02:35,780 --> 00:02:38,310

his own 4 there is on 4 through 8 so




83

00:02:38,509 --> 00:02:40,080

they do really well in our zone 5 garden




84

00:02:40,280 --> 00:02:42,030

echinacea is in general I don't have




85

00:02:42,229 --> 00:02:43,469

experience with this particular variety




86

00:02:43,669 --> 00:02:45,420

yet but I've grown lots of different




87

00:02:45,620 --> 00:02:46,890

echinacea Xand they're really reliable




88

00:02:47,090 --> 00:02:50,069

here also really great if you have bad




89

00:02:50,269 --> 00:02:50,670

soil




90

00:02:50,870 --> 00:02:52,920

they're so adaptable to all different




91

00:02:53,120 --> 00:02:54,930

kinds of soil types they can take a




92

00:02:55,129 --> 00:02:56,640

light amount of shade they perform the




93

00:02:56,840 --> 00:02:58,618

best in a full Sun area where we're at




94

00:02:58,818 --> 00:03:00,149

in front of the chicken coop gets shade




95

00:03:00,348 --> 00:03:01,860

in the morning but it gets strong




96

00:03:02,060 --> 00:03:05,160

afternoon Sun so I think that they're




97

00:03:05,360 --> 00:03:06,660

going to do really really well up here




98

00:03:06,860 --> 00:03:08,189

they should perform nicely they also




99

00:03:08,389 --> 00:03:10,980

attract pollinators bees and butterflies




100

00:03:11,180 --> 00:03:13,259

so both of these are great for that and




101

00:03:13,459 --> 00:03:15,118

the last flower in this kind of trio




102

00:03:15,318 --> 00:03:17,400

recipe of pollinator attracted plants is




103

00:03:17,599 --> 00:03:19,800

Indiglo girl salvia we just did a video




104

00:03:20,000 --> 00:03:22,289

on these not too long ago this is a new




105

00:03:22,489 --> 00:03:23,759

variety this year and I was so excited




106

00:03:23,959 --> 00:03:25,259

about it because they have such a




107

00:03:25,459 --> 00:03:27,569

striking bloom they have a really thick




108

00:03:27,769 --> 00:03:29,759

bloom stock like it's really like big




109

00:03:29,959 --> 00:03:31,830

flowers and then the calyx that holds




110

00:03:32,030 --> 00:03:34,319

the bloom onto the stem is a little bit




111

00:03:34,519 --> 00:03:36,118

darker color so when they are done




112

00:03:36,318 --> 00:03:37,560

blooming they still kind of look like




113

00:03:37,759 --> 00:03:39,090

they're in bloom so I don't feel like




114

00:03:39,289 --> 00:03:40,379

I'm in such a rush to get them




115

00:03:40,579 --> 00:03:43,230

deadheaded so these grow about 20 to 22




116

00:03:43,430 --> 00:03:44,610

inches tall and I don't think I




117

00:03:44,810 --> 00:03:46,110

mentioned these grow at 18 inches taller




118

00:03:46,310 --> 00:03:48,060

so so I should have kind of a nice




119

00:03:48,259 --> 00:03:50,219

stair-step effect with this trio right




120

00:03:50,419 --> 00:03:52,980

here and these attract bees hummingbirds




121

00:03:53,180 --> 00:03:55,800

and butterflies so these should be just




122

00:03:56,000 --> 00:03:56,819

kind of like a powerhouse for




123

00:03:57,019 --> 00:03:58,920

pollinators and I'm really excited about




124

00:03:59,120 --> 00:04:00,990

that and the last thing all three of




125

00:04:01,189 --> 00:04:02,759

these should be fairly compatible in




126

00:04:02,959 --> 00:04:04,710

terms of light and water like I said




127

00:04:04,909 --> 00:04:06,569

they all perform in full Sun which they




128

00:04:06,769 --> 00:04:09,719

will get the echinacea and salvia can




129

00:04:09,919 --> 00:04:12,450

handle some drought but they do perform




130

00:04:12,650 --> 00:04:13,770

best when they get consistent moisture




131

00:04:13,969 --> 00:04:15,210

not a lot of moisture but just




132

00:04:15,409 --> 00:04:17,579

consistent the dahlias however I will




133

00:04:17,779 --> 00:04:19,770

make sure to give consistent moisture to




134

00:04:19,970 --> 00:04:22,199

I also give them more fertilizer I'll be




135

00:04:22,399 --> 00:04:24,149

fertilizing these on a weekly basis when




136

00:04:24,348 --> 00:04:26,069

I come around to do all my containers




137

00:04:26,269 --> 00:04:27,930

the echinacea and salvia I'll be putting




138

00:04:28,129 --> 00:04:29,610

some starter fertilizer in the hole with




139

00:04:29,810 --> 00:04:32,160

them today and that'll probably be it




140

00:04:32,360 --> 00:04:34,020

for this year until I fertilize well I




141

00:04:34,220 --> 00:04:35,639

may fertilize later on in the summer or




142

00:04:35,839 --> 00:04:37,860

again next spring and for that I would




143

00:04:38,060 --> 00:04:39,689

use a fertilizer like plant tone or




144

00:04:39,889 --> 00:04:41,999

flower tone and you might notice a




145

00:04:42,199 --> 00:04:44,009

couple other things hanging out in this




146

00:04:44,209 --> 00:04:46,139

area I'm just trying some stuff out so I




147

00:04:46,339 --> 00:04:47,759

am gonna be planting a climbing rose




148

00:04:47,959 --> 00:04:50,100

called Zephyr and ruin I've got four of




149

00:04:50,300 --> 00:04:51,869

them that are gonna be trained up the




150

00:04:52,069 --> 00:04:53,520

run and kind of over the roof there are




151

00:04:53,720 --> 00:04:55,619

thornless pink rose that blooms all




152

00:04:55,819 --> 00:04:57,420

summer so we got a lot of color there




153

00:04:57,620 --> 00:04:59,249

I've got a purple fountain grass that I




154

00:04:59,449 --> 00:05:00,660

thought would be really pretty having a




155

00:05:00,860 --> 00:05:02,968

dark grassy texture right here and then




156

00:05:03,168 --> 00:05:05,129

a Miss violet butterfly bush which I'm




157

00:05:05,329 --> 00:05:06,660

probably not gonna plant today I'm just




158

00:05:06,860 --> 00:05:08,699

kind of I have it set there just to try




159

00:05:08,899 --> 00:05:10,709

it out so I just wanted to mention those




160

00:05:10,908 --> 00:05:12,149

three things cuz you will see those




161

00:05:12,348 --> 00:05:13,559

alright let's get these things in the




162

00:05:13,759 --> 00:05:14,220

ground




163

00:05:14,420 --> 00:05:37,810

[Music]




164

00:05:39,930 --> 00:05:54,709

[Music]




165

00:06:02,540 --> 00:06:12,869

[Music]




166

00:06:15,839 --> 00:06:24,159

[Music]




167

00:06:29,019 --> 00:06:32,109

168

00:06:35,500 --> 00:07:02,249

169

00:07:04,819 --> 00:07:07,129

[Music]




170

00:07:07,329 --> 00:07:10,189

this area turned out so cute I love it I




171

00:07:10,389 --> 00:07:11,389

think this is probably one of the most




172

00:07:11,589 --> 00:07:13,309

cheerful spots I have in my garden right




173

00:07:13,509 --> 00:07:15,588

now and it's funny how one project like




174

00:07:15,788 --> 00:07:16,879

just laying out some flowers getting




175

00:07:17,079 --> 00:07:18,110

them in the ground kind of snowballs




176

00:07:18,310 --> 00:07:20,149

into running all the drip irrigation




177

00:07:20,348 --> 00:07:21,920

getting the mulch down and planting up




178

00:07:22,120 --> 00:07:24,468

my window box so I decided instead of




179

00:07:24,668 --> 00:07:26,240

putting any color in here in terms of




180

00:07:26,439 --> 00:07:28,490

blooms just to do foliage so these are




181

00:07:28,689 --> 00:07:31,040

three clipped Sprinter box woods with




182

00:07:31,240 --> 00:07:32,718

Goldilocks creeping Jenny planted




183

00:07:32,918 --> 00:07:35,149

underneath and I think the foliage




184

00:07:35,348 --> 00:07:37,129

colors contrast each other really nicely




185

00:07:37,329 --> 00:07:39,319

and I think if I would have had color in




186

00:07:39,519 --> 00:07:40,610

here and a whole bunch of color down




187

00:07:40,810 --> 00:07:41,869

here it would have been a little bit too




188

00:07:42,069 --> 00:07:43,730

much Plus that brings a little bit more




189

00:07:43,930 --> 00:07:46,160

of a formal touch to the area and this




190

00:07:46,360 --> 00:07:49,040

spot down below can just be free and




191

00:07:49,240 --> 00:07:51,410

kind of more country feel a little bit




192

00:07:51,610 --> 00:07:52,670

more abundant with blooms




193

00:07:52,870 --> 00:07:54,679

so I did end up planting the rose and




194

00:07:54,879 --> 00:07:56,149

the purple fountain grass and then I'll




195

00:07:56,348 --> 00:07:58,850

kind of just keep moving down the way to




196

00:07:59,050 --> 00:08:00,619

finish up this whole area I did figure




197

00:08:00,819 --> 00:08:02,899

out that I needed one more Indiglo girl




198

00:08:03,098 --> 00:08:04,218

salvia so that's something I'm gonna




199

00:08:04,418 --> 00:08:05,660

keep my eye out for it down at the




200

00:08:05,860 --> 00:08:07,579

garden center this season just to finish




201

00:08:07,779 --> 00:08:09,800

my little trio and then I will be




202

00:08:10,000 --> 00:08:11,360

probably incorporating that Miss violet




203

00:08:11,560 --> 00:08:12,920

butterfly bush another plant that




204

00:08:13,120 --> 00:08:15,139

attracts butterflies and then possibly a




205

00:08:15,339 --> 00:08:18,170

small ornamental very small growing




206

00:08:18,370 --> 00:08:20,449

evergreen for some evergreen interest in




207

00:08:20,649 --> 00:08:22,519

here but my whole goal is just to kind




208

00:08:22,718 --> 00:08:26,088

of keep the area colorful and not too




209

00:08:26,288 --> 00:08:27,860

big I don't want anything to really




210

00:08:28,060 --> 00:08:31,040

block the run too much so anyway that's




211

00:08:31,240 --> 00:08:33,649

it so if you guys are looking for some




212

00:08:33,849 --> 00:08:35,750

plants to attract butterflies look for




213

00:08:35,950 --> 00:08:38,599

salvia dahlias and echinacea hope you




214

00:08:38,799 --> 00:08:40,189

guys enjoyed this video and we will see




215

00:08:40,389 --> 00:08:41,629

you in the next one

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,389

hey guys how's it going we're in front




2

00:00:01,589 --> 00:00:02,619

of the chicken coop this morning getting




3

00:00:02,819 --> 00:00:04,750

ready to do some planting the coop is




4

00:00:04,950 --> 00:00:07,240

pretty much done on the outside anyway




5

00:00:07,440 --> 00:00:08,710

just got the shutters and stove




6

00:00:08,910 --> 00:00:10,390

yesterday and it's looking a little bit




7

00:00:10,589 --> 00:00:12,910

more put together now I do have two




8

00:00:13,109 --> 00:00:15,040

serbian spruces here on either side of




9

00:00:15,240 --> 00:00:16,990

the coop and that's going to be kind of




10

00:00:17,190 --> 00:00:19,570

my grounding formality for this area and




11

00:00:19,769 --> 00:00:21,400

I was kind of like thinking should I do




12

00:00:21,600 --> 00:00:23,710

more boxwood hedging but I think what I




13

00:00:23,910 --> 00:00:25,600

want to do is keep this area a little




14

00:00:25,800 --> 00:00:27,999

bit more free and full of color so I




15

00:00:28,199 --> 00:00:29,530

thought I'd be a really fun thing to




16

00:00:29,730 --> 00:00:30,699

show you guys some of the plants I'm




17

00:00:30,899 --> 00:00:32,288

putting in because I talked about




18

00:00:32,488 --> 00:00:33,939

recipes and containers all the time like




19

00:00:34,140 --> 00:00:35,469

what plants to put together that look




20

00:00:35,670 --> 00:00:36,878

really good together and that are




21

00:00:37,079 --> 00:00:39,399

compatible so I want to do that today




22

00:00:39,600 --> 00:00:40,869

showing you some really great things




23

00:00:41,070 --> 00:00:42,869

that attract butterflies in particular




24

00:00:43,070 --> 00:00:45,399

so we are gonna be planting salvia




25

00:00:45,600 --> 00:00:48,159

echinacea and dahlias I do want to talk




26

00:00:48,359 --> 00:00:49,599

to you about each one of the plants so




27

00:00:49,799 --> 00:00:51,070

let's get set up and then we can talk




28

00:00:51,270 --> 00:00:52,779

about them so the first one is called




29

00:00:52,979 --> 00:00:54,759

delightful lively lavender and you guys




30

00:00:54,960 --> 00:00:56,320

might remember I planted the mystic




31

00:00:56,520 --> 00:00:57,849

illusion Dahlia last year which has




32

00:00:58,049 --> 00:00:59,649

really dark foliage and really bright




33

00:00:59,850 --> 00:01:01,959

yellow flowers they performed so well




34

00:01:02,159 --> 00:01:04,539

I'm really excited to give this variety




35

00:01:04,739 --> 00:01:06,369

a try and I love the color of the




36

00:01:06,569 --> 00:01:09,369

flowers so this one grows about 2 to 3




37

00:01:09,569 --> 00:01:11,469

feet tall and about 20 inches wide and I




38

00:01:11,670 --> 00:01:12,909

did look on the tag they recommend




39

00:01:13,109 --> 00:01:15,039

spacing about like 12 to 16 inches so I




40

00:01:15,239 --> 00:01:17,049

did put him quite close together but




41

00:01:17,250 --> 00:01:18,519

honestly of the 3 I'm going to show you




42

00:01:18,719 --> 00:01:20,109

today I think you could just do one of




43

00:01:20,310 --> 00:01:21,640

each in a little space like maybe buy a




44

00:01:21,840 --> 00:01:24,159

mailbox or tucked into a sunny spot in




45

00:01:24,359 --> 00:01:25,929

your landscape and you would get kind of




46

00:01:26,129 --> 00:01:27,340

the same effect you would get all the




47

00:01:27,540 --> 00:01:29,289

color and the pollinator attracting




48

00:01:29,489 --> 00:01:32,109

quality so I think I've got 6 or so




49

00:01:32,310 --> 00:01:33,849

right back in here the cool thing too




50

00:01:34,049 --> 00:01:35,349

about these dahlias is that they don't




51

00:01:35,549 --> 00:01:37,299

form they were bred to not form tubers




52

00:01:37,500 --> 00:01:40,058

they may form a few but they won't form




53

00:01:40,259 --> 00:01:41,590

them like a normal Dahlia will which




54

00:01:41,790 --> 00:01:43,238

means you get earlier blooms in the




55

00:01:43,438 --> 00:01:45,278

season so they'll start blooming really




56

00:01:45,478 --> 00:01:46,750

early and then they'll bloom all the way




57

00:01:46,950 --> 00:01:48,039

through frost because all of their




58

00:01:48,239 --> 00:01:49,899

energy gets sent into bloom production




59

00:01:50,099 --> 00:01:51,969

you also don't have to deadhead them you




60

00:01:52,170 --> 00:01:54,399

can I tend to like to do that because it




61

00:01:54,599 --> 00:01:55,808

makes them look a little bit better it




62

00:01:56,009 --> 00:01:58,149

will help them rebloom a little bit more




63

00:01:58,349 --> 00:02:00,518

but it's not 100% necessary they still




64

00:02:00,718 --> 00:02:03,099

will keep blooming and their foliage is




65

00:02:03,299 --> 00:02:04,959

resistant to disease which I know that




66

00:02:05,159 --> 00:02:06,579

can be a problem like powdery mildew and




67

00:02:06,780 --> 00:02:08,710

things like that in some areas the next




68

00:02:08,909 --> 00:02:10,539

flower are these beautiful bright yellow




69

00:02:10,739 --> 00:02:12,390

echinacea they're called yellow mite




70

00:02:12,590 --> 00:02:14,580

they're actually new next year this




71

00:02:14,780 --> 00:02:17,069

particular variety I was able to get my




72

00:02:17,269 --> 00:02:18,450

hands on a few of them to try them out




73

00:02:18,650 --> 00:02:20,069

my garden to see how they grew and how




74

00:02:20,269 --> 00:02:21,990

they did I think it's gonna be beautiful




75

00:02:22,189 --> 00:02:24,210

up here with this layer of bright pink




76

00:02:24,409 --> 00:02:25,770

and then the sunshine yellow it's gonna




77

00:02:25,969 --> 00:02:28,350

be so happy these are a perennial I




78

00:02:28,550 --> 00:02:29,520

don't think I mentioned that these are




79

00:02:29,719 --> 00:02:32,099

an annual these are Hardy to zone 8 so




80

00:02:32,299 --> 00:02:33,420

they might be a perennial for some of




81

00:02:33,620 --> 00:02:35,580

you but these are winter hardy down to




82

00:02:35,780 --> 00:02:38,310

his own 4 there is on 4 through 8 so




83

00:02:38,509 --> 00:02:40,080

they do really well in our zone 5 garden




84

00:02:40,280 --> 00:02:42,030

echinacea is in general I don't have




85

00:02:42,229 --> 00:02:43,469

experience with this particular variety




86

00:02:43,669 --> 00:02:45,420

yet but I've grown lots of different




87

00:02:45,620 --> 00:02:46,890

echinacea Xand they're really reliable




88

00:02:47,090 --> 00:02:50,069

here also really great if you have bad




89

00:02:50,269 --> 00:02:50,670

soil




90

00:02:50,870 --> 00:02:52,920

they're so adaptable to all different




91

00:02:53,120 --> 00:02:54,930

kinds of soil types they can take a




92

00:02:55,129 --> 00:02:56,640

light amount of shade they perform the




93

00:02:56,840 --> 00:02:58,618

best in a full Sun area where we're at




94

00:02:58,818 --> 00:03:00,149

in front of the chicken coop gets shade




95

00:03:00,348 --> 00:03:01,860

in the morning but it gets strong




96

00:03:02,060 --> 00:03:05,160

afternoon Sun so I think that they're




97

00:03:05,360 --> 00:03:06,660

going to do really really well up here




98

00:03:06,860 --> 00:03:08,189

they should perform nicely they also




99

00:03:08,389 --> 00:03:10,980

attract pollinators bees and butterflies




100

00:03:11,180 --> 00:03:13,259

so both of these are great for that and




101

00:03:13,459 --> 00:03:15,118

the last flower in this kind of trio




102

00:03:15,318 --> 00:03:17,400

recipe of pollinator attracted plants is




103

00:03:17,599 --> 00:03:19,800

Indiglo girl salvia we just did a video




104

00:03:20,000 --> 00:03:22,289

on these not too long ago this is a new




105

00:03:22,489 --> 00:03:23,759

variety this year and I was so excited




106

00:03:23,959 --> 00:03:25,259

about it because they have such a




107

00:03:25,459 --> 00:03:27,569

striking bloom they have a really thick




108

00:03:27,769 --> 00:03:29,759

bloom stock like it's really like big




109

00:03:29,959 --> 00:03:31,830

flowers and then the calyx that holds




110

00:03:32,030 --> 00:03:34,319

the bloom onto the stem is a little bit




111

00:03:34,519 --> 00:03:36,118

darker color so when they are done




112

00:03:36,318 --> 00:03:37,560

blooming they still kind of look like




113

00:03:37,759 --> 00:03:39,090

they're in bloom so I don't feel like




114

00:03:39,289 --> 00:03:40,379

I'm in such a rush to get them




115

00:03:40,579 --> 00:03:43,230

deadheaded so these grow about 20 to 22




116

00:03:43,430 --> 00:03:44,610

inches tall and I don't think I




117

00:03:44,810 --> 00:03:46,110

mentioned these grow at 18 inches taller




118

00:03:46,310 --> 00:03:48,060

so so I should have kind of a nice




119

00:03:48,259 --> 00:03:50,219

stair-step effect with this trio right




120

00:03:50,419 --> 00:03:52,980

here and these attract bees hummingbirds




121

00:03:53,180 --> 00:03:55,800

and butterflies so these should be just




122

00:03:56,000 --> 00:03:56,819

kind of like a powerhouse for




123

00:03:57,019 --> 00:03:58,920

pollinators and I'm really excited about




124

00:03:59,120 --> 00:04:00,990

that and the last thing all three of




125

00:04:01,189 --> 00:04:02,759

these should be fairly compatible in




126

00:04:02,959 --> 00:04:04,710

terms of light and water like I said




127

00:04:04,909 --> 00:04:06,569

they all perform in full Sun which they




128

00:04:06,769 --> 00:04:09,719

will get the echinacea and salvia can




129

00:04:09,919 --> 00:04:12,450

handle some drought but they do perform




130

00:04:12,650 --> 00:04:13,770

best when they get consistent moisture




131

00:04:13,969 --> 00:04:15,210

not a lot of moisture but just




132

00:04:15,409 --> 00:04:17,579

consistent the dahlias however I will




133

00:04:17,779 --> 00:04:19,770

make sure to give consistent moisture to




134

00:04:19,970 --> 00:04:22,199

I also give them more fertilizer I'll be




135

00:04:22,399 --> 00:04:24,149

fertilizing these on a weekly basis when




136

00:04:24,348 --> 00:04:26,069

I come around to do all my containers




137

00:04:26,269 --> 00:04:27,930

the echinacea and salvia I'll be putting




138

00:04:28,129 --> 00:04:29,610

some starter fertilizer in the hole with




139

00:04:29,810 --> 00:04:32,160

them today and that'll probably be it




140

00:04:32,360 --> 00:04:34,020

for this year until I fertilize well I




141

00:04:34,220 --> 00:04:35,639

may fertilize later on in the summer or




142

00:04:35,839 --> 00:04:37,860

again next spring and for that I would




143

00:04:38,060 --> 00:04:39,689

use a fertilizer like plant tone or




144

00:04:39,889 --> 00:04:41,999

flower tone and you might notice a




145

00:04:42,199 --> 00:04:44,009

couple other things hanging out in this




146

00:04:44,209 --> 00:04:46,139

area I'm just trying some stuff out so I




147

00:04:46,339 --> 00:04:47,759

am gonna be planting a climbing rose




148

00:04:47,959 --> 00:04:50,100

called Zephyr and ruin I've got four of




149

00:04:50,300 --> 00:04:51,869

them that are gonna be trained up the




150

00:04:52,069 --> 00:04:53,520

run and kind of over the roof there are




151

00:04:53,720 --> 00:04:55,619

thornless pink rose that blooms all




152

00:04:55,819 --> 00:04:57,420

summer so we got a lot of color there




153

00:04:57,620 --> 00:04:59,249

I've got a purple fountain grass that I




154

00:04:59,449 --> 00:05:00,660

thought would be really pretty having a




155

00:05:00,860 --> 00:05:02,968

dark grassy texture right here and then




156

00:05:03,168 --> 00:05:05,129

a Miss violet butterfly bush which I'm




157

00:05:05,329 --> 00:05:06,660

probably not gonna plant today I'm just




158

00:05:06,860 --> 00:05:08,699

kind of I have it set there just to try




159

00:05:08,899 --> 00:05:10,709

it out so I just wanted to mention those




160

00:05:10,908 --> 00:05:12,149

three things cuz you will see those




161

00:05:12,348 --> 00:05:13,559

alright let's get these things in the




162

00:05:13,759 --> 00:05:14,220

ground




163

00:05:14,420 --> 00:05:37,810

[Music]




164

00:05:39,930 --> 00:05:54,709

[Music]




165

00:06:02,540 --> 00:06:12,869

[Music]




166

00:06:15,839 --> 00:06:24,159

[Music]




167

00:06:29,019 --> 00:06:32,109

[Music]




168

00:06:35,500 --> 00:07:02,249

[Music]




169

00:07:04,819 --> 00:07:07,129

[Music]




170

00:07:07,329 --> 00:07:10,189

this area turned out so cute I love it I




171

00:07:10,389 --> 00:07:11,389

think this is probably one of the most




172

00:07:11,589 --> 00:07:13,309

cheerful spots I have in my garden right




173

00:07:13,509 --> 00:07:15,588

now and it's funny how one project like




174

00:07:15,788 --> 00:07:16,879

just laying out some flowers getting




175

00:07:17,079 --> 00:07:18,110

them in the ground kind of snowballs




176

00:07:18,310 --> 00:07:20,149

into running all the drip irrigation




177

00:07:20,348 --> 00:07:21,920

getting the mulch down and planting up




178

00:07:22,120 --> 00:07:24,468

my window box so I decided instead of




179

00:07:24,668 --> 00:07:26,240

putting any color in here in terms of




180

00:07:26,439 --> 00:07:28,490

blooms just to do foliage so these are




181

00:07:28,689 --> 00:07:31,040

three clipped Sprinter box woods with




182

00:07:31,240 --> 00:07:32,718

Goldilocks creeping Jenny planted




183

00:07:32,918 --> 00:07:35,149

underneath and I think the foliage




184

00:07:35,348 --> 00:07:37,129

colors contrast each other really nicely




185

00:07:37,329 --> 00:07:39,319

and I think if I would have had color in




186

00:07:39,519 --> 00:07:40,610

here and a whole bunch of color down




187

00:07:40,810 --> 00:07:41,869

here it would have been a little bit too




188

00:07:42,069 --> 00:07:43,730

much Plus that brings a little bit more




189

00:07:43,930 --> 00:07:46,160

of a formal touch to the area and this




190

00:07:46,360 --> 00:07:49,040

spot down below can just be free and




191

00:07:49,240 --> 00:07:51,410

kind of more country feel a little bit




192

00:07:51,610 --> 00:07:52,670

more abundant with blooms




193

00:07:52,870 --> 00:07:54,679

so I did end up planting the rose and




194

00:07:54,879 --> 00:07:56,149

the purple fountain grass and then I'll




195

00:07:56,348 --> 00:07:58,850

kind of just keep moving down the way to




196

00:07:59,050 --> 00:08:00,619

finish up this whole area I did figure




197

00:08:00,819 --> 00:08:02,899

out that I needed one more Indiglo girl




198

00:08:03,098 --> 00:08:04,218

salvia so that's something I'm gonna




199

00:08:04,418 --> 00:08:05,660

keep my eye out for it down at the




200

00:08:05,860 --> 00:08:07,579

garden center this season just to finish




201

00:08:07,779 --> 00:08:09,800

my little trio and then I will be




202

00:08:10,000 --> 00:08:11,360

probably incorporating that Miss violet




203

00:08:11,560 --> 00:08:12,920

butterfly bush another plant that




204

00:08:13,120 --> 00:08:15,139

attracts butterflies and then possibly a




205

00:08:15,339 --> 00:08:18,170

small ornamental very small growing




206

00:08:18,370 --> 00:08:20,449

evergreen for some evergreen interest in




207

00:08:20,649 --> 00:08:22,519

here but my whole goal is just to kind




208

00:08:22,718 --> 00:08:26,088

of keep the area colorful and not too




209

00:08:26,288 --> 00:08:27,860

big I don't want anything to really




210

00:08:28,060 --> 00:08:31,040

block the run too much so anyway that's




211

00:08:31,240 --> 00:08:33,649

it so if you guys are looking for some




212

00:08:33,849 --> 00:08:35,750

plants to attract butterflies look for




213

00:08:35,950 --> 00:08:38,599

salvia dahlias and echinacea hope you




214

00:08:38,799 --> 00:08:40,189

guys enjoyed this video and we will see




215

00:08:40,389 --> 00:08:41,629

you in the next one




216

00:08:41,830 --> 00:08:46,830

Transcript:
 
1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,690

hey guys in today's video I'm just gonna




2

00:00:01,889 --> 00:00:03,129

be planting a bunch of container




3

00:00:03,330 --> 00:00:04,629

starting with the ones right in front of




4

00:00:04,830 --> 00:00:06,578

our barn along with the hay rack up




5

00:00:06,778 --> 00:00:07,960

there and then several more in the




6

00:00:08,160 --> 00:00:10,120

garden including the urns along the west




7

00:00:10,320 --> 00:00:11,470

side of our house which I'm so excited




8

00:00:11,669 --> 00:00:13,689

about and I hope you guys are not




9

00:00:13,888 --> 00:00:15,280

getting sick of planting videos but that




10

00:00:15,480 --> 00:00:17,440

is what our life is right now from about




11

00:00:17,640 --> 00:00:19,929

mid-april to mid-june it's go time in




12

00:00:20,129 --> 00:00:22,060

terms of planting here annuals




13

00:00:22,260 --> 00:00:24,010

perennials shrubs trees I mean you name




14

00:00:24,210 --> 00:00:25,568

it it's just kind of like the time of




15

00:00:25,768 --> 00:00:27,519

year for us to get everything in the




16

00:00:27,719 --> 00:00:29,260

ground so I hope you're enjoying all of




17

00:00:29,460 --> 00:00:31,720

the videos so I do have the plants that




18

00:00:31,920 --> 00:00:32,558

I'm going to use in these containers




19

00:00:32,759 --> 00:00:33,939

sitting right here on the ground let me




20

00:00:34,140 --> 00:00:35,919

show you I'm really excited about this




21

00:00:36,119 --> 00:00:38,619

color blend so I decided to go with a




22

00:00:38,820 --> 00:00:40,390

purple fountain grass as the centerpiece




23

00:00:40,590 --> 00:00:42,759

if you've never grown this it's a super




24

00:00:42,960 --> 00:00:45,669

common grass to find it's super popular




25

00:00:45,869 --> 00:00:48,358

but it grows into a very spectacular




26

00:00:48,558 --> 00:00:50,739

looking a centerpiece with really pretty




27

00:00:50,939 --> 00:00:53,018

plumes on the top and it seems like




28

00:00:53,219 --> 00:00:55,209

every year no matter what I try I end up




29

00:00:55,409 --> 00:00:56,619

putting purple fountain grass in these




30

00:00:56,820 --> 00:00:58,779

containers maybe like even somewhere




31

00:00:58,979 --> 00:01:00,698

midway in the season after one of my




32

00:01:00,899 --> 00:01:02,619

other centerpieces has died or something




33

00:01:02,820 --> 00:01:04,659

so anyway I decided to just go with that




34

00:01:04,859 --> 00:01:06,250

from the gate and I think that'll be




35

00:01:06,450 --> 00:01:07,659

great because this will go all the way




36

00:01:07,859 --> 00:01:09,700

through the season in fact I can leave




37

00:01:09,900 --> 00:01:10,899

these through the winter for winter




38

00:01:11,099 --> 00:01:13,060

interest if I decide to then we're going




39

00:01:13,260 --> 00:01:14,769

to do a Sweet Caroline light greens




40

00:01:14,969 --> 00:01:17,709

sweet potato vine which I'm excited to




41

00:01:17,909 --> 00:01:19,299

have a foliage accent I haven't done




42

00:01:19,500 --> 00:01:20,590

that in these containers for the last




43

00:01:20,790 --> 00:01:23,528

few years because they are pretty water




44

00:01:23,728 --> 00:01:26,528

hungry but we do have drip set up to the




45

00:01:26,728 --> 00:01:27,969

pots which I need to work on a little




46

00:01:28,170 --> 00:01:29,759

bit today so that won't be a problem




47

00:01:29,959 --> 00:01:33,308

this next one is gorgeous and I haven't




48

00:01:33,509 --> 00:01:35,590

used a lot of it in this garden but this




49

00:01:35,790 --> 00:01:38,738

is a Lantana called lemon zest and I




50

00:01:38,938 --> 00:01:40,628

just think it's so pretty to have that




51

00:01:40,828 --> 00:01:42,549

bright pop of yellow back here there's a




52

00:01:42,750 --> 00:01:44,738

little bit of white like a little bit of




53

00:01:44,938 --> 00:01:47,500

lighter yellow and then that really




54

00:01:47,700 --> 00:01:50,079

bright yellow anyway these which should




55

00:01:50,280 --> 00:01:51,730

do really well because it's so hot and




56

00:01:51,930 --> 00:01:53,799

sunny in front of the barn typically we




57

00:01:54,000 --> 00:01:55,509

have a really nice overcast day today




58

00:01:55,709 --> 00:01:58,689

then we have supertunia blue skies which




59

00:01:58,890 --> 00:02:02,500

this is so beautiful I love this color




60

00:02:02,700 --> 00:02:05,259

this actually reminds me of my mom she




61

00:02:05,459 --> 00:02:07,090

does a lot of like this sky blue color




62

00:02:07,290 --> 00:02:09,250

or light lavender and then coral and




63

00:02:09,449 --> 00:02:11,230

light yellow and white




64

00:02:11,430 --> 00:02:13,270

anyway that's probably where my love for




65

00:02:13,469 --> 00:02:14,000

soft




66

00:02:14,199 --> 00:02:16,910

like colors comes from I'm guessing and




67

00:02:17,110 --> 00:02:19,820

then supertunia white so I think it's




68

00:02:20,020 --> 00:02:21,789

just gonna be a really pretty blend of




69

00:02:21,989 --> 00:02:24,439

cheerful looking colors and then for the




70

00:02:24,639 --> 00:02:26,840

hay rack up top same blend of plants but




71

00:02:27,039 --> 00:02:28,340

I'm going to forego the fountain grass




72

00:02:28,539 --> 00:02:30,230

because that would kind of look odd I




73

00:02:30,430 --> 00:02:31,939

think up there the containers are




74

00:02:32,139 --> 00:02:33,890

cleaned out I have bags of soil right




75

00:02:34,090 --> 00:02:36,670

here I think I brought enough up here




76

00:02:36,870 --> 00:02:39,110

and I do want to show you the drip




77

00:02:39,310 --> 00:02:41,719

system here so it actually comes from




78

00:02:41,919 --> 00:02:44,330

inside the barn I don't know if you can




79

00:02:44,530 --> 00:02:45,920

see that right there it's kind of dark




80

00:02:46,120 --> 00:02:48,080

Aaron drilled a hole which is no big




81

00:02:48,280 --> 00:02:49,400

deal in our barn because there's like




82

00:02:49,599 --> 00:02:52,009

natural holes in our barn the drip comes




83

00:02:52,209 --> 00:02:53,630

right out through there and then through




84

00:02:53,830 --> 00:02:55,880

a hole that we drilled in the bottom




85

00:02:56,080 --> 00:02:57,830

there's actually four other drain holes




86

00:02:58,030 --> 00:03:00,110

on either side like all sides of this




87

00:03:00,310 --> 00:03:01,430

container and look at all those elm




88

00:03:01,629 --> 00:03:03,800

seeds oh they're just coming off the




89

00:03:04,000 --> 00:03:05,150

trees like crazy right now




90

00:03:05,349 --> 00:03:07,400

so you can see the quarter inch drip




91

00:03:07,599 --> 00:03:09,230

tubing comes up through the bottom we'll




92

00:03:09,430 --> 00:03:11,450

fill it with soil and then it'll just




93

00:03:11,650 --> 00:03:13,430

kind of lay against the side you know




94

00:03:13,629 --> 00:03:14,719

it'll be kind of trapped against the




95

00:03:14,919 --> 00:03:16,640

side with soil and then we'll flip it




96

00:03:16,840 --> 00:03:18,439

over the top of the soil and put some




97

00:03:18,639 --> 00:03:19,849

emitters in I think I'm going to put




98

00:03:20,049 --> 00:03:24,080

four and it currently only has the one




99

00:03:24,280 --> 00:03:25,939

right now okay so let me get them filled




100

00:03:26,139 --> 00:03:28,409

with soil




101

00:03:28,780 --> 00:03:32,968

[Music]




102

00:03:35,090 --> 00:03:37,539

so I've got my clippers extra tubing




103

00:03:37,739 --> 00:03:39,189

these are half gallon per hour emitters




104

00:03:39,389 --> 00:03:41,409

I want four of them in each container




105

00:03:41,609 --> 00:03:44,110

this stakes right here will allow me to




106

00:03:44,310 --> 00:03:46,149

run the tubing through them and then I




107

00:03:46,348 --> 00:03:47,890

can place them a lot easier with the




108

00:03:48,090 --> 00:03:49,840

help of the stakes I'm going to use a




109

00:03:50,039 --> 00:03:53,560

quarter inch cross fitting coupler and a




110

00:03:53,759 --> 00:03:56,050

quarter inch T and then this tool right




111

00:03:56,250 --> 00:03:58,539

here helps push the tubing onto the




112

00:03:58,739 --> 00:04:00,189

emitters which is super handy I'll show




113

00:04:00,389 --> 00:04:00,849

you that in a minute




114

00:04:01,049 --> 00:04:03,519

so before I cut anything on this end I'm




115

00:04:03,718 --> 00:04:05,920

going to make all four of my lines with




116

00:04:06,120 --> 00:04:07,959

the half gallon emitters on the end it's




117

00:04:08,158 --> 00:04:09,670

just easier to do it like this so I'm




118

00:04:09,870 --> 00:04:11,319

going to cut four lengths of this




119

00:04:11,519 --> 00:04:13,629

quarter inch tubing and I can trim them




120

00:04:13,829 --> 00:04:16,990

to size when I'm all done so you want to




121

00:04:17,189 --> 00:04:18,939

give yourself a little extra like a




122

00:04:19,139 --> 00:04:20,139

little bit more than you think you're




123

00:04:20,339 --> 00:04:23,110

going to need so there we go got my four




124

00:04:23,310 --> 00:04:25,718

pieces and I've got my four emitters




125

00:04:25,918 --> 00:04:28,449

right here so this tool is really handy




126

00:04:28,649 --> 00:04:29,829

I learned about this from one of you




127

00:04:30,029 --> 00:04:32,139

guys on a video where I was kind of




128

00:04:32,339 --> 00:04:34,149

complaining about how hard it is to put




129

00:04:34,348 --> 00:04:36,579

any midders and couplers onto these




130

00:04:36,779 --> 00:04:38,110

pieces of tubing it like hurts your




131

00:04:38,310 --> 00:04:40,059

fingers really bad so I didn't know this




132

00:04:40,259 --> 00:04:41,949

tool existed so you stick your let me




133

00:04:42,149 --> 00:04:45,389

just grab one you stick your emitter in




134

00:04:45,589 --> 00:04:48,699

to one end of this tool and then you




135

00:04:48,899 --> 00:04:54,509

feed your tube through and then you just




136

00:04:54,709 --> 00:04:58,899

clamp them down just like that how did I




137

00:04:59,098 --> 00:05:01,240

not know that this tool existed okay I'm




138

00:05:01,439 --> 00:05:03,430

also going to do that with my couplers




139

00:05:03,629 --> 00:05:06,670

here too I know that I need to have two




140

00:05:06,870 --> 00:05:08,829

of them coming off of the T these are




141

00:05:09,029 --> 00:05:11,259

harder the couplers are harder than the




142

00:05:11,459 --> 00:05:15,218

emitters are that's perfect and you can




143

00:05:15,418 --> 00:05:16,749

twist these around like you can twist




144

00:05:16,949 --> 00:05:18,968

the coupler and the tubing to get them




145

00:05:19,168 --> 00:05:21,009

to go you know to get the tubes to go




146

00:05:21,209 --> 00:05:22,300

where you want them to go and you can




147

00:05:22,500 --> 00:05:24,850

configure the interior of your pot with




148

00:05:25,050 --> 00:05:28,120

drips and couplers however you want but




149

00:05:28,319 --> 00:05:29,860

what I'm going to do is I'm going to cut




150

00:05:30,060 --> 00:05:32,079

this right here this is the one that's




151

00:05:32,279 --> 00:05:33,399

feeding through the bottom of the pot




152

00:05:33,598 --> 00:05:35,649

you want to make sure it doesn't go down




153

00:05:35,848 --> 00:05:38,319

into soil and then I'm going to attach




154

00:05:38,519 --> 00:05:40,838

it to one end of the cross so see I've




155

00:05:41,038 --> 00:05:43,329

got these two sides right here and then




156

00:05:43,528 --> 00:05:45,069

I'm going to use a little piece I've got




157

00:05:45,269 --> 00:05:45,699

a hook that




158

00:05:45,899 --> 00:05:47,350

to the cross I'm just gonna use a little




159

00:05:47,550 --> 00:05:52,660

piece of tubing okay so this is the tube




160

00:05:52,860 --> 00:05:54,160

that comes up from underneath the pot




161

00:05:54,360 --> 00:05:56,920

we've got a cross coupler that has this




162

00:05:57,120 --> 00:05:58,870

one with an emitter that will take care




163

00:05:59,069 --> 00:06:00,610

of kind of these plants on this side and




164

00:06:00,810 --> 00:06:02,470

then this one which will take care of




165

00:06:02,670 --> 00:06:04,300

the front plants and then on the other




166

00:06:04,500 --> 00:06:06,370

side of the cross I just put a little




167

00:06:06,569 --> 00:06:09,100

piece of tube to a tee coupler so that I




168

00:06:09,300 --> 00:06:11,020

could attach another tube with an




169

00:06:11,220 --> 00:06:12,490

emitter that will take care of this side




170

00:06:12,689 --> 00:06:14,560

and then the last tube with an emitter




171

00:06:14,759 --> 00:06:16,689

to take care of the back and that is




172

00:06:16,889 --> 00:06:18,100

what I'm going to be doing on all the




173

00:06:18,300 --> 00:06:20,530

other containers along the front of the




174

00:06:20,730 --> 00:06:22,689

barn so now I'm going to add a little




175

00:06:22,889 --> 00:06:25,060

bit of slow-release plant food and this




176

00:06:25,259 --> 00:06:27,129

just helps give a slow continuous feed




177

00:06:27,329 --> 00:06:29,020

to your plants even though I do come in




178

00:06:29,220 --> 00:06:31,420

on a weekly basis and do water-soluble




179

00:06:31,620 --> 00:06:34,090

fertilizer because I want these plants




180

00:06:34,290 --> 00:06:35,920

to perform really really well and you




181

00:06:36,120 --> 00:06:37,569

need to feed them really well in order




182

00:06:37,769 --> 00:06:39,400

for that to happen so now I'm going to




183

00:06:39,600 --> 00:06:41,560

plant my centerpiece first which is the




184

00:06:41,759 --> 00:06:43,449

purple fountain grass and this is an




185

00:06:43,649 --> 00:06:45,100

interesting container because you would




186

00:06:45,300 --> 00:06:46,960

think that I would back my centerpiece




187

00:06:47,160 --> 00:06:49,240

up to the wall just because the




188

00:06:49,439 --> 00:06:50,860

containers kind of backed up to the wall




189

00:06:51,060 --> 00:06:53,110

but you see these from three sides you




190

00:06:53,310 --> 00:06:54,610

do see them from this side because our




191

00:06:54,810 --> 00:06:56,620

driveway runs this way you see them from




192

00:06:56,819 --> 00:06:58,540

the other side and from the front so I




193

00:06:58,740 --> 00:07:00,370

really do want the flower interest to be




194

00:07:00,569 --> 00:07:03,250

all the way around the centerpiece so




195

00:07:03,449 --> 00:07:04,629

we're just gonna kind of put this right




196

00:07:04,829 --> 00:07:07,629

in the center here I think that'll be




197

00:07:07,829 --> 00:07:10,810

really really nice okay and then I kind




198

00:07:11,009 --> 00:07:12,250

of forgot how I was gonna arrange all




199

00:07:12,449 --> 00:07:14,439

the rest of these I dunno I want my




200

00:07:14,639 --> 00:07:16,509

sweet potato vine to be in the front so




201

00:07:16,709 --> 00:07:18,310

we'll place that one you notice my




202

00:07:18,509 --> 00:07:20,079

emitter goes right to the potato vines




203

00:07:20,279 --> 00:07:22,270

root ball because this is the most water




204

00:07:22,470 --> 00:07:24,009

hungry of all the plants I'm putting in




205

00:07:24,209 --> 00:07:25,720

so you just want to be mindful of that




206

00:07:25,920 --> 00:07:29,770

there we go I think I'm just gonna place




207

00:07:29,970 --> 00:07:32,410

everything else I'm gonna kind of go in




208

00:07:32,610 --> 00:07:36,879

thirds here I think we'll see how this




209

00:07:37,079 --> 00:07:41,689

ends up there's the blue




210

00:07:41,889 --> 00:07:47,460

so white white and white




211

00:07:47,660 --> 00:07:50,160

okay so supertunias are all kind of




212

00:07:50,360 --> 00:07:52,230

split into thirds except for this little




213

00:07:52,430 --> 00:07:54,540

space here I'm going to plant those and




214

00:07:54,740 --> 00:07:56,639

then the Lantana's I'm gonna back plant




215

00:07:56,839 --> 00:07:58,470

because my supertunia is more of a




216

00:07:58,670 --> 00:08:00,780

dramatic Spiller and the Lantana is a




217

00:08:00,980 --> 00:08:03,540

little bit more tall so we'll get these




218

00:08:03,740 --> 00:08:07,050

all in and you'll see the root balls are




219

00:08:07,250 --> 00:08:08,819

not very bound this one needs water i




220

00:08:09,019 --> 00:08:10,860

haven't watered anything yet today and




221

00:08:11,060 --> 00:08:14,790

and you really don't need to tease the




222

00:08:14,990 --> 00:08:17,218

roots unless it's like severely root




223

00:08:17,418 --> 00:08:19,829

bound which this time of year you really




224

00:08:20,029 --> 00:08:22,829

don't find that that often unless you're




225

00:08:23,029 --> 00:08:24,150

waiting to get your annuals into a




226

00:08:24,350 --> 00:08:25,620

little bit later like this right here




227

00:08:25,819 --> 00:08:28,650

you can see a lot of soil still it looks




228

00:08:28,850 --> 00:08:30,750

pretty nice oh my goodness I just love




229

00:08:30,949 --> 00:08:34,500

this combination sometimes it's really




230

00:08:34,700 --> 00:08:36,620

hard for me to want to try out different




231

00:08:36,820 --> 00:08:39,419

plants because sometimes I find things




232

00:08:39,620 --> 00:08:41,699

that I love I'm like supertunia Bordeaux




233

00:08:41,899 --> 00:08:44,370

for example I love that plant and I




234

00:08:44,570 --> 00:08:46,409

could use every single year all over in




235

00:08:46,610 --> 00:08:48,870

all of my containers but then like I




236

00:08:49,070 --> 00:08:50,429

don't know we wouldn't have very many




237

00:08:50,629 --> 00:08:52,139

interesting videos for you guys if




238

00:08:52,339 --> 00:08:54,359

that's all I plant it and it is fun




239

00:08:54,559 --> 00:08:55,859

because sometimes when you try out new




240

00:08:56,059 --> 00:08:58,859

things you find something that is that




241

00:08:59,059 --> 00:09:01,169

becomes your new favorite and like these




242

00:09:01,370 --> 00:09:03,419

supertunia blue skies I haven't ever




243

00:09:03,620 --> 00:09:05,399

planted this particular supertunia I




244

00:09:05,600 --> 00:09:07,709

think it's fairly new anyway it's almost




245

00:09:07,909 --> 00:09:09,479

kind of an electric blue color when I




246

00:09:09,679 --> 00:09:11,909

look at it close I think I'm gonna




247

00:09:12,110 --> 00:09:15,329

really enjoy that see the Lantana's will




248

00:09:15,529 --> 00:09:17,129

put on a little more height I think yeah




249

00:09:17,330 --> 00:09:20,039

12 to 24 inches so I definitely didn't




250

00:09:20,240 --> 00:09:21,269

want them right in the front of the




251

00:09:21,470 --> 00:09:23,159

container we'll let the supertunia and




252

00:09:23,360 --> 00:09:24,889

the potato vine do the spilling thing




253

00:09:25,089 --> 00:09:27,120

Lantana's will grow up and be kind of my




254

00:09:27,320 --> 00:09:28,969

filler plant and then I've got my




255

00:09:29,169 --> 00:09:30,990

centerpiece in the purple fountain grass




256

00:09:31,190 --> 00:09:34,259

and I want to do four of these in all




257

00:09:34,460 --> 00:09:36,629

four corners of the square here like




258

00:09:36,830 --> 00:09:39,929

that and it does seem like an awful lot




259

00:09:40,129 --> 00:09:43,019

of plants if these were supertunia




260

00:09:43,220 --> 00:09:45,689

vistas out of that series I definitely




261

00:09:45,889 --> 00:09:47,879

wouldn't plant that many in here because




262

00:09:48,080 --> 00:09:51,439

they grow like they're so vigorous but




263

00:09:51,639 --> 00:09:53,389

we'll see we'll see how vigorous they I




264

00:09:53,589 --> 00:09:55,250

mean all supertunias are really great




265

00:09:55,450 --> 00:09:57,740

growers and they're vigorous plants but




266

00:09:57,940 --> 00:09:58,878

there's nothing quite like those




267

00:09:59,078 --> 00:10:01,519

supertunia vistas that's why we use




268

00:10:01,720 --> 00:10:03,229

those in the hay racks up front because




269

00:10:03,429 --> 00:10:05,389

you can get away with using far less of




270

00:10:05,589 --> 00:10:08,089

those than really anything else and it




271

00:10:08,289 --> 00:10:09,559

kind of scoop everything away from the




272

00:10:09,759 --> 00:10:11,049

purple fountain grass a little bit




273

00:10:11,250 --> 00:10:13,578

because that will need to its own space




274

00:10:13,778 --> 00:10:17,599

and I think that that looks gorgeous so




275

00:10:17,799 --> 00:10:19,549

even though I have a drip system run to




276

00:10:19,750 --> 00:10:21,109

these containers every time I plant




277

00:10:21,309 --> 00:10:22,669

something new I always water it in with




278

00:10:22,870 --> 00:10:25,008

a hose to begin with just to make sure




279

00:10:25,208 --> 00:10:26,000

everything's settled




280

00:10:26,200 --> 00:10:27,258

I check around the root balls to make




281

00:10:27,458 --> 00:10:29,120

sure I didn't miss any places because




282

00:10:29,320 --> 00:10:30,139

you want to make sure that there's no




283

00:10:30,339 --> 00:10:31,849

air coming up against any other roots




284

00:10:32,049 --> 00:10:34,039

and I just want to settle everything in




285

00:10:34,240 --> 00:10:35,359

from overhead and then the drip system




286

00:10:35,559 --> 00:10:37,429

can take off from there and the only




287

00:10:37,629 --> 00:10:38,719

maintenance I will have in this




288

00:10:38,919 --> 00:10:41,870

container is weekly fertilizing and then




289

00:10:42,070 --> 00:10:43,729

possibly trimming toward the middle part




290

00:10:43,929 --> 00:10:45,318

of summer summer because these will




291

00:10:45,519 --> 00:10:47,089

probably reach the ground and I don't




292

00:10:47,289 --> 00:10:48,469

really want them trailing all over the




293

00:10:48,669 --> 00:10:49,909

place so I'll probably keep them level




294

00:10:50,110 --> 00:10:51,919

with the bottom of the pot but all of




295

00:10:52,120 --> 00:10:53,990

these do not require deadheading they're




296

00:10:54,190 --> 00:10:56,179

really great that way so now let me




297

00:10:56,379 --> 00:10:57,649

tackle the rest of these containers




298

00:10:57,850 --> 00:10:59,089

along the bottom of the bar and then




299

00:10:59,289 --> 00:11:00,349

we'll go up and do the hay rack here




300

00:11:00,549 --> 00:11:02,479

they are all planted and they look so




301

00:11:02,679 --> 00:11:05,029

pretty I really like this blend of color




302

00:11:05,230 --> 00:11:07,068

and there's no pink are you guys




303

00:11:07,269 --> 00:11:08,899

surprised so now that I'm done with




304

00:11:09,100 --> 00:11:10,818

these containers I need to tackle the




305

00:11:11,019 --> 00:11:12,859

hay rack up there and I'm trying to




306

00:11:13,059 --> 00:11:14,328

remember how I did that last year I




307

00:11:14,528 --> 00:11:16,969

think I used an extension ladder because




308

00:11:17,169 --> 00:11:18,828

only one side of the window opens and I




309

00:11:19,028 --> 00:11:20,508

couldn't reach all the way to the end of




310

00:11:20,708 --> 00:11:23,089

the hay rack on one side so I do think I




311

00:11:23,289 --> 00:11:25,008

need to get a ladder out and I don't




312

00:11:25,208 --> 00:11:26,209

even know if they're soil in there or




313

00:11:26,409 --> 00:11:28,099

not from last year we'll have to run




314

00:11:28,299 --> 00:11:29,539

upstairs and see it's also starting to




315

00:11:29,740 --> 00:11:31,729

rain a little bit out here hopefully it




316

00:11:31,929 --> 00:11:35,849

doesn't pick up it's nice today though




317

00:11:39,399 --> 00:11:44,069

yep dang so I need to clean that soil




318

00:11:44,269 --> 00:11:48,479

out and then put fresh stuff in and then




319

00:11:48,679 --> 00:11:50,339

plant it's a pretty view down to the




320

00:11:50,539 --> 00:11:54,969

garden though look at that I love it




321

00:11:55,169 --> 00:12:13,308

[Music]




322

00:12:14,759 --> 00:12:17,049

I just got dirt and Coco fiber all over




323

00:12:17,250 --> 00:12:20,159

my face so I got the ladder set up and




324

00:12:20,360 --> 00:12:23,469

then what I did was I like heaved the




325

00:12:23,669 --> 00:12:26,409

whole Coco fiber liner and soil out of




326

00:12:26,610 --> 00:12:28,000

the hay rack and then just tossed it




327

00:12:28,200 --> 00:12:31,479

inside so that's one way to clean out




328

00:12:31,679 --> 00:12:33,490

your Coco fiber liners I think I




329

00:12:33,690 --> 00:12:35,939

probably just made a huge mess upstairs




330

00:12:36,139 --> 00:12:39,549

yeah huge mess a lot safer doing it that




331

00:12:39,750 --> 00:12:40,929

way than trying to come down the ladder




332

00:12:41,129 --> 00:12:43,059

with it though and now I've got to fill




333

00:12:43,259 --> 00:12:45,250

those both up with soil so I've got




334

00:12:45,450 --> 00:12:47,169

brand new fresh soil in here else well




335

00:12:47,370 --> 00:12:48,849

as the slow release fertilizer you can




336

00:12:49,049 --> 00:12:50,529

kind of see it I already mixed it in and




337

00:12:50,730 --> 00:12:52,659

then I've got three one gallon per hour




338

00:12:52,860 --> 00:12:55,029

emitters and each one of these hair acts




339

00:12:55,230 --> 00:12:57,729

and then I went up the stairs and put




340

00:12:57,929 --> 00:12:59,859

the plants out the window here so I'm




341

00:13:00,059 --> 00:13:01,479

going to start arranging I think I'm




342

00:13:01,679 --> 00:13:04,149

gonna do two blues and two whites in




343

00:13:04,350 --> 00:13:06,309

each one see how this hay rack is it's




344

00:13:06,509 --> 00:13:08,409

split into two I had to do it that way




345

00:13:08,610 --> 00:13:11,500

to actually like make the width of this




346

00:13:11,700 --> 00:13:13,089

window because I couldn't find one that




347

00:13:13,289 --> 00:13:16,419

was the exact width and then maybe -




348

00:13:16,620 --> 00:13:19,299

potato vine like one on each side so




349

00:13:19,500 --> 00:13:22,059

that it's really even in the middle and




350

00:13:22,259 --> 00:13:24,849

then all the Lantana lemon zest will be




351

00:13:25,049 --> 00:13:27,699

kind of toward the back all right




352

00:13:27,899 --> 00:13:28,879

here we go




353

00:13:29,080 --> 00:13:44,378

[Music]




354

00:13:44,578 --> 00:13:47,779

while that was an adventure I ended up




355

00:13:47,980 --> 00:13:50,029

only putting three supertunias per hair




356

00:13:50,230 --> 00:13:53,209

act so I did a blue a white and then a




357

00:13:53,409 --> 00:13:56,539

blue and then I did three Lantana to




358

00:13:56,740 --> 00:13:58,459

back it because I do get quite large I




359

00:13:58,659 --> 00:14:01,729

didn't space that one quite right there




360

00:14:01,929 --> 00:14:02,709

we go




361

00:14:02,909 --> 00:14:05,209

only difference on the other side is I




362

00:14:05,409 --> 00:14:07,459

just put the one potato vine which




363

00:14:07,659 --> 00:14:09,709

hopefully will kind of grow I pointed it




364

00:14:09,909 --> 00:14:10,639

this direction




365

00:14:10,839 --> 00:14:12,169

hopefully it'll grow and look like it's




366

00:14:12,370 --> 00:14:13,909

right in the middle all right so let's




367

00:14:14,110 --> 00:14:15,349

go downstairs and see what it looks like




368

00:14:15,549 --> 00:14:16,729

from down there although I don't think




369

00:14:16,929 --> 00:14:17,868

it'll look that great




370

00:14:18,068 --> 00:14:19,519

until it starts filling in a little bit




371

00:14:19,720 --> 00:14:21,589

and spilling over the edges and then I'm




372

00:14:21,789 --> 00:14:23,058

gonna run inside quick and clean off my




373

00:14:23,259 --> 00:14:25,549

face before I continue punching Crum I




374

00:14:25,750 --> 00:14:26,839

forgot to close the window while I was




375

00:14:27,039 --> 00:14:29,269

up there but you can see the flowers I




376

00:14:29,470 --> 00:14:30,828

don't know how well it seems kind of




377

00:14:31,028 --> 00:14:32,808

dark in the camera I can see them a




378

00:14:33,009 --> 00:14:34,159

little bit peeking over the edge but




379

00:14:34,360 --> 00:14:35,448

once they start spilling it'll look




380

00:14:35,649 --> 00:14:37,909

amazing and I love that they will match




381

00:14:38,110 --> 00:14:40,159

the pots right underneath so I'm up on




382

00:14:40,360 --> 00:14:41,359

the west side of the house getting ready




383

00:14:41,559 --> 00:14:43,308

to plant these four beautiful urns that




384

00:14:43,509 --> 00:14:45,198

we placed recently I think this is




385

00:14:45,399 --> 00:14:46,729

actually the last planting project I'm




386

00:14:46,929 --> 00:14:48,409

going to get to this afternoon because I




387

00:14:48,610 --> 00:14:49,789

got a really late start and they're




388

00:14:49,990 --> 00:14:51,289

taking me a lot longer than I thought




389

00:14:51,490 --> 00:14:51,889

they would




390

00:14:52,089 --> 00:14:53,990

with all the drip and all that I did




391

00:14:54,190 --> 00:14:55,539

fill all of these with soil all the way




392

00:14:55,740 --> 00:14:58,698

already just now and I got the drip all




393

00:14:58,899 --> 00:15:00,078

set up because it's pretty much exactly




394

00:15:00,278 --> 00:15:02,059

the same as what I just did I'll show




395

00:15:02,259 --> 00:15:04,248

you a close-up I only did three emitters




396

00:15:04,448 --> 00:15:06,469

in each urn so now all I need to do is




397

00:15:06,669 --> 00:15:08,779

put my slow release fertilizer in show




398

00:15:08,980 --> 00:15:10,878

you the plants and get them in the urns




399

00:15:11,078 --> 00:15:13,309

first off before we go to the urns since




400

00:15:13,509 --> 00:15:14,688

I'm standing right here look at these




401

00:15:14,889 --> 00:15:17,868

climbing Colette roses aren't they the




402

00:15:18,068 --> 00:15:22,399

most beautiful things I just love them




403

00:15:22,600 --> 00:15:23,539

and they're starting to climb up the




404

00:15:23,740 --> 00:15:25,729

trellis Arbor whatever




405

00:15:25,929 --> 00:15:29,628

here comes Russell and I did plant some




406

00:15:29,828 --> 00:15:32,688

supertunia snowdrift in each one of the




407

00:15:32,889 --> 00:15:34,938

boxwood swoops here because I thought it




408

00:15:35,139 --> 00:15:36,258

would be fun to try it out in the




409

00:15:36,458 --> 00:15:38,479

landscape as opposed to containers like




410

00:15:38,679 --> 00:15:40,729

we did out at my parents house so we'll




411

00:15:40,929 --> 00:15:42,139

see how they do each one of these is




412

00:15:42,339 --> 00:15:43,729

supposed to get like two feet tall by




413

00:15:43,929 --> 00:15:47,058

four feet wide so I only planted six and




414

00:15:47,259 --> 00:15:48,558

I think they'll fill in this space just




415

00:15:48,759 --> 00:15:50,448

perfect and here are the plants that I




416

00:15:50,649 --> 00:15:52,639

chose so we're gonna do another purple




417

00:15:52,839 --> 00:15:54,469

fountain grass I got some great big ones




418

00:15:54,669 --> 00:15:55,909

for this project because I kind of




419

00:15:56,110 --> 00:15:56,569

wanted insta




420

00:15:56,769 --> 00:15:58,939

impact and then we're gonna surround




421

00:15:59,139 --> 00:16:01,279

those grasses with some diamond frost




422

00:16:01,480 --> 00:16:03,769

euphorbia which has that beautiful




423

00:16:03,970 --> 00:16:07,279

ethereal kind of cloud like I don't know




424

00:16:07,480 --> 00:16:09,289

it's just so pretty the little white




425

00:16:09,490 --> 00:16:11,629

blooms and then super Belle's white




426

00:16:11,830 --> 00:16:15,409

right here and then some dichondra




427

00:16:15,610 --> 00:16:17,870

silver Falls for our weeping foliage




428

00:16:18,070 --> 00:16:20,689

accent so last year I planted super




429

00:16:20,889 --> 00:16:22,639

Belle's white diamond frosty for BIA and




430

00:16:22,839 --> 00:16:26,000

then a skyrocket Pennisetum I think no




431

00:16:26,200 --> 00:16:27,649

desert plains Pennisetum in the




432

00:16:27,850 --> 00:16:29,479

containers in front of the vegetable




433

00:16:29,679 --> 00:16:32,479

garden and they were so gorgeous they




434

00:16:32,679 --> 00:16:34,578

did so well and these containers are not




435

00:16:34,778 --> 00:16:36,258

that far away I mean the vegetable




436

00:16:36,458 --> 00:16:38,120

gardens right there so these are gonna




437

00:16:38,320 --> 00:16:40,159

get pretty much the same conditions that




438

00:16:40,360 --> 00:16:42,379

that container had last year and so I




439

00:16:42,580 --> 00:16:43,909

kind of wanted to replicate that this




440

00:16:44,110 --> 00:16:46,039

year because I had such great luck also




441

00:16:46,240 --> 00:16:49,008

having the supertunia snowdrift in the




442

00:16:49,208 --> 00:16:51,379

boxwood so having the white on that side




443

00:16:51,580 --> 00:16:52,669

of the pathway and then drawing the




444

00:16:52,870 --> 00:16:54,979

white over into the containers I think




445

00:16:55,179 --> 00:16:57,500

will be a really restful thing to do and




446

00:16:57,700 --> 00:16:59,120

then I can start filling in the rest of




447

00:16:59,320 --> 00:17:01,309

the area with some other color but I




448

00:17:01,509 --> 00:17:03,039

think I'm gonna do one fountain grass




449

00:17:03,240 --> 00:17:06,049

maybe three of all the rest of the




450

00:17:06,250 --> 00:17:07,729

plants will have to see these are a




451

00:17:07,929 --> 00:17:09,229

little bit smaller than the planters I




452

00:17:09,429 --> 00:17:11,269

just planted so this is the esplanade




453

00:17:11,470 --> 00:17:14,029

urn from unique stone on a pillar that I




454

00:17:14,230 --> 00:17:15,559

cannot remember the name of these do not




455

00:17:15,759 --> 00:17:17,329

come together you have to order them




456

00:17:17,529 --> 00:17:20,899

separately and but they're beautiful I




457

00:17:21,099 --> 00:17:24,259

absolutely absolutely love them and you




458

00:17:24,459 --> 00:17:26,450

can see the drip the quarter inch drip




459

00:17:26,650 --> 00:17:28,190

comes right through the bottom in fact




460

00:17:28,390 --> 00:17:29,479

we showed this to you in another video




461

00:17:29,679 --> 00:17:31,460

we run the drip up because there is a




462

00:17:31,660 --> 00:17:33,079

hole through the pillar and then a hole




463

00:17:33,279 --> 00:17:34,669

the drainage hole up through the urn and




464

00:17:34,869 --> 00:17:37,069

then it comes in right here




465

00:17:37,269 --> 00:17:39,319

I put a Crofts coupler and then I did




466

00:17:39,519 --> 00:17:41,240

three emitters in this container just




467

00:17:41,440 --> 00:17:43,549

kind of split it into thirds so all of




468

00:17:43,750 --> 00:17:45,629

these urns are ready for planting




469

00:17:45,829 --> 00:18:09,408

[Music]




470

00:18:11,220 --> 00:18:13,399

alright guys they're all planted and I




471

00:18:13,599 --> 00:18:15,889

love love them I think they look like




472

00:18:16,089 --> 00:18:18,529

such an elegant classic mix of colors




473

00:18:18,730 --> 00:18:21,409

and textures I just love like the




474

00:18:21,609 --> 00:18:23,480

all-white look with that grass in the




475

00:18:23,680 --> 00:18:25,430

middle and everything of course will




476

00:18:25,630 --> 00:18:27,589

grow crazy they'll get really big I




477

00:18:27,789 --> 00:18:30,200

ended up doing the one grass and then I




478

00:18:30,400 --> 00:18:32,358

did three diamond frost euphorbias kind




479

00:18:32,558 --> 00:18:34,579

of set back from the edge and then in




480

00:18:34,779 --> 00:18:36,589

front of the diamond frost I did the




481

00:18:36,789 --> 00:18:38,509

dichondra silver falls and then in




482

00:18:38,710 --> 00:18:40,309

between each grouping of that I did the




483

00:18:40,509 --> 00:18:42,619

super Belles white and I'm hopeful that




484

00:18:42,819 --> 00:18:44,930

these will look just like the containers




485

00:18:45,130 --> 00:18:46,759

that were in front of the vegetable




486

00:18:46,960 --> 00:18:47,329

garden




487

00:18:47,529 --> 00:18:49,519

I hope they fill in and are as full of




488

00:18:49,720 --> 00:18:52,039

flowers as those were but I think it was




489

00:18:52,240 --> 00:18:53,690

kind of the right thing to do in terms




490

00:18:53,890 --> 00:18:56,899

of color because it looks so great with




491

00:18:57,099 --> 00:19:00,099

this style of urn as well as the white




492

00:19:00,299 --> 00:19:02,000

supertunias that we have on the other




493

00:19:02,200 --> 00:19:03,858

side I just love it and the North Pole




494

00:19:04,058 --> 00:19:06,229

Arbor vytas are doing so well we were




495

00:19:06,429 --> 00:19:07,849

looking at pictures the other day of




496

00:19:08,049 --> 00:19:09,950

what they look like when we planted them




497

00:19:10,150 --> 00:19:13,250

and they were about they were barely




498

00:19:13,450 --> 00:19:16,369

over this second like this middle I




499

00:19:16,569 --> 00:19:19,399

guess middle fence rail right here so




500

00:19:19,599 --> 00:19:21,470

they have grown significantly I mean




501

00:19:21,670 --> 00:19:23,839

putting on that much growth and then




502

00:19:24,039 --> 00:19:26,779

they've at least doubled if not more in




503

00:19:26,980 --> 00:19:29,509

size I can't wait until they become a




504

00:19:29,710 --> 00:19:31,220

solid green wall because can you imagine




505

00:19:31,420 --> 00:19:33,710

these urns set apart from any




506

00:19:33,910 --> 00:19:35,119

distractions you know in the background




507

00:19:35,319 --> 00:19:37,608

but just having that solid green while




508

00:19:37,808 --> 00:19:40,399

it's 10 to 15 feet tall I think the




509

00:19:40,599 --> 00:19:43,789

contrast will be beautiful we also did




510

00:19:43,990 --> 00:19:47,240

end up my mom found seven more North




511

00:19:47,440 --> 00:19:49,009

Pole Arbor vitaes ordered them in for us




512

00:19:49,210 --> 00:19:51,889

so we could finish off the hedge it's




513

00:19:52,089 --> 00:19:53,269

gonna look a little funny for a while




514

00:19:53,470 --> 00:19:56,419

but these will catch up but because I




515

00:19:56,619 --> 00:19:58,669

didn't realize I hadn't really thought




516

00:19:58,869 --> 00:20:01,069

of the urns I was going to do a big




517

00:20:01,269 --> 00:20:03,169

evergreen right here and so the the




518

00:20:03,369 --> 00:20:04,789

arbor vitae hedge was gonna kind of




519

00:20:04,990 --> 00:20:07,099

disappear behind that big spruce but




520

00:20:07,299 --> 00:20:09,139

then I decided to go with the urns so I




521

00:20:09,339 --> 00:20:11,000

need to continue my green wall all the




522

00:20:11,200 --> 00:20:12,710

way down to the birch and then this is




523

00:20:12,910 --> 00:20:14,479

where I'll start in with my bigger




524

00:20:14,679 --> 00:20:16,460

plantings of evergreens so that this




525

00:20:16,660 --> 00:20:18,200

will be my disappearing wall kind of




526

00:20:18,400 --> 00:20:20,180

like right in here I hope that makes




527

00:20:20,380 --> 00:20:21,609

sense but




528

00:20:21,809 --> 00:20:23,559

this has been kind of an evolving




529

00:20:23,759 --> 00:20:25,599

process just like everything is in our




530

00:20:25,799 --> 00:20:28,899

garden so it's been really fun to kind




531

00:20:29,099 --> 00:20:30,849

of see it go from what it wasn't we




532

00:20:31,049 --> 00:20:33,669

moved in to what it is today and what it




533

00:20:33,869 --> 00:20:35,409

I can kind of see the potential for what




534

00:20:35,609 --> 00:20:37,599

it will be here and even like a couple




535

00:20:37,799 --> 00:20:39,399

years or five years or ten years it's




536

00:20:39,599 --> 00:20:41,319

going to be amazing and the last little




537

00:20:41,519 --> 00:20:43,269

bit is still yet to be mulched this is




538

00:20:43,470 --> 00:20:45,039

where we ended up we have our second




539

00:20:45,240 --> 00:20:47,859

mulch over there we are just needing




540

00:20:48,059 --> 00:20:50,409

extra time to get that done but we're




541

00:20:50,609 --> 00:20:52,899

almost there so anyway guys that is it




542

00:20:53,099 --> 00:20:55,389

for this video I got 2 big groupings of




543

00:20:55,589 --> 00:20:57,490

pots done which makes me happy they're




544

00:20:57,690 --> 00:21:00,159

all on drip so after today after I water




545

00:21:00,359 --> 00:21:02,200

them all in they are good to go for this




546

00:21:02,400 --> 00:21:03,909

season in terms of that I don't have




547

00:21:04,109 --> 00:21:06,129

like a daily maintenance tour with them




548

00:21:06,329 --> 00:21:08,019

which is awesome and that's what takes a




549

00:21:08,220 --> 00:21:09,519

little extra time getting them all set




550

00:21:09,720 --> 00:21:12,549

up like that but it's 100% worth it




551

00:21:12,750 --> 00:21:14,289

because I can enjoy them so much more




552

00:21:14,490 --> 00:21:15,849

when I'm not feeling like I'm a slave to




553

00:21:16,049 --> 00:21:17,980

them every day you know making sure that




554

00:21:18,180 --> 00:21:20,079

either myself or somebody else is here




555

00:21:20,279 --> 00:21:22,419

to give them water so anyway thank you




556

00:21:22,619 --> 00:21:23,740

guys so much for watching hope you




557

00:21:23,940 --> 00:21:25,299

558

00:21:25,500 --> 00:21:26,740

in the next one bye

1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,690

hey guys in today's video I'm just gonna




2

00:00:01,889 --> 00:00:03,129

be planting a bunch of container




3

00:00:03,330 --> 00:00:04,629

starting with the ones right in front of




4

00:00:04,830 --> 00:00:06,578

our barn along with the hay rack up




5

00:00:06,778 --> 00:00:07,960

there and then several more in the




6

00:00:08,160 --> 00:00:10,120

garden including the urns along the west




7

00:00:10,320 --> 00:00:11,470

side of our house which I'm so excited




8

00:00:11,669 --> 00:00:13,689

about and I hope you guys are not




9

00:00:13,888 --> 00:00:15,280

getting sick of planting videos but that




10

00:00:15,480 --> 00:00:17,440

is what our life is right now from about




11

00:00:17,640 --> 00:00:19,929

mid-april to mid-june it's go time in




12

00:00:20,129 --> 00:00:22,060

terms of planting here annuals




13

00:00:22,260 --> 00:00:24,010

perennials shrubs trees I mean you name




14

00:00:24,210 --> 00:00:25,568

it it's just kind of like the time of




15

00:00:25,768 --> 00:00:27,519

year for us to get everything in the




16

00:00:27,719 --> 00:00:29,260

ground so I hope you're enjoying all of




17

00:00:29,460 --> 00:00:31,720

the videos so I do have the plants that




18

00:00:31,920 --> 00:00:32,558

I'm going to use in these containers




19

00:00:32,759 --> 00:00:33,939

sitting right here on the ground let me




20

00:00:34,140 --> 00:00:35,919

show you I'm really excited about this




21

00:00:36,119 --> 00:00:38,619

color blend so I decided to go with a




22

00:00:38,820 --> 00:00:40,390

purple fountain grass as the centerpiece




23

00:00:40,590 --> 00:00:42,759

if you've never grown this it's a super




24

00:00:42,960 --> 00:00:45,669

common grass to find it's super popular




25

00:00:45,869 --> 00:00:48,358

but it grows into a very spectacular




26

00:00:48,558 --> 00:00:50,739

looking a centerpiece with really pretty




27

00:00:50,939 --> 00:00:53,018

plumes on the top and it seems like




28

00:00:53,219 --> 00:00:55,209

every year no matter what I try I end up




29

00:00:55,409 --> 00:00:56,619

putting purple fountain grass in these




30

00:00:56,820 --> 00:00:58,779

containers maybe like even somewhere




31

00:00:58,979 --> 00:01:00,698

midway in the season after one of my




32

00:01:00,899 --> 00:01:02,619

other centerpieces has died or something




33

00:01:02,820 --> 00:01:04,659

so anyway I decided to just go with that




34

00:01:04,859 --> 00:01:06,250

from the gate and I think that'll be




35

00:01:06,450 --> 00:01:07,659

great because this will go all the way




36

00:01:07,859 --> 00:01:09,700

through the season in fact I can leave




37

00:01:09,900 --> 00:01:10,899

these through the winter for winter




38

00:01:11,099 --> 00:01:13,060

interest if I decide to then we're going




39

00:01:13,260 --> 00:01:14,769

to do a Sweet Caroline light greens




40

00:01:14,969 --> 00:01:17,709

sweet potato vine which I'm excited to




41

00:01:17,909 --> 00:01:19,299

have a foliage accent I haven't done




42

00:01:19,500 --> 00:01:20,590

that in these containers for the last




43

00:01:20,790 --> 00:01:23,528

few years because they are pretty water




44

00:01:23,728 --> 00:01:26,528

hungry but we do have drip set up to the




45

00:01:26,728 --> 00:01:27,969

pots which I need to work on a little




46

00:01:28,170 --> 00:01:29,759

bit today so that won't be a problem




47

00:01:29,959 --> 00:01:33,308

this next one is gorgeous and I haven't




48

00:01:33,509 --> 00:01:35,590

used a lot of it in this garden but this




49

00:01:35,790 --> 00:01:38,738

is a Lantana called lemon zest and I




50

00:01:38,938 --> 00:01:40,628

just think it's so pretty to have that




51

00:01:40,828 --> 00:01:42,549

bright pop of yellow back here there's a




52

00:01:42,750 --> 00:01:44,738

little bit of white like a little bit of




53

00:01:44,938 --> 00:01:47,500

lighter yellow and then that really




54

00:01:47,700 --> 00:01:50,079

bright yellow anyway these which should




55

00:01:50,280 --> 00:01:51,730

do really well because it's so hot and




56

00:01:51,930 --> 00:01:53,799

sunny in front of the barn typically we




57

00:01:54,000 --> 00:01:55,509

have a really nice overcast day today




58

00:01:55,709 --> 00:01:58,689

then we have supertunia blue skies which




59

00:01:58,890 --> 00:02:02,500

this is so beautiful I love this color




60

00:02:02,700 --> 00:02:05,259

this actually reminds me of my mom she




61

00:02:05,459 --> 00:02:07,090

does a lot of like this sky blue color




62

00:02:07,290 --> 00:02:09,250

or light lavender and then coral and




63

00:02:09,449 --> 00:02:11,230

light yellow and white




64

00:02:11,430 --> 00:02:13,270

anyway that's probably where my love for




65

00:02:13,469 --> 00:02:14,000

soft




66

00:02:14,199 --> 00:02:16,910

like colors comes from I'm guessing and




67

00:02:17,110 --> 00:02:19,820

then supertunia white so I think it's




68

00:02:20,020 --> 00:02:21,789

just gonna be a really pretty blend of




69

00:02:21,989 --> 00:02:24,439

cheerful looking colors and then for the




70

00:02:24,639 --> 00:02:26,840

hay rack up top same blend of plants but




71

00:02:27,039 --> 00:02:28,340

I'm going to forego the fountain grass




72

00:02:28,539 --> 00:02:30,230

because that would kind of look odd I




73

00:02:30,430 --> 00:02:31,939

think up there the containers are




74

00:02:32,139 --> 00:02:33,890

cleaned out I have bags of soil right




75

00:02:34,090 --> 00:02:36,670

here I think I brought enough up here




76

00:02:36,870 --> 00:02:39,110

and I do want to show you the drip




77

00:02:39,310 --> 00:02:41,719

system here so it actually comes from




78

00:02:41,919 --> 00:02:44,330

inside the barn I don't know if you can




79

00:02:44,530 --> 00:02:45,920

see that right there it's kind of dark




80

00:02:46,120 --> 00:02:48,080

Aaron drilled a hole which is no big




81

00:02:48,280 --> 00:02:49,400

deal in our barn because there's like




82

00:02:49,599 --> 00:02:52,009

natural holes in our barn the drip comes




83

00:02:52,209 --> 00:02:53,630

right out through there and then through




84

00:02:53,830 --> 00:02:55,880

a hole that we drilled in the bottom




85

00:02:56,080 --> 00:02:57,830

there's actually four other drain holes




86

00:02:58,030 --> 00:03:00,110

on either side like all sides of this




87

00:03:00,310 --> 00:03:01,430

container and look at all those elm




88

00:03:01,629 --> 00:03:03,800

seeds oh they're just coming off the




89

00:03:04,000 --> 00:03:05,150

trees like crazy right now




90

00:03:05,349 --> 00:03:07,400

so you can see the quarter inch drip




91

00:03:07,599 --> 00:03:09,230

tubing comes up through the bottom we'll




92

00:03:09,430 --> 00:03:11,450

fill it with soil and then it'll just




93

00:03:11,650 --> 00:03:13,430

kind of lay against the side you know




94

00:03:13,629 --> 00:03:14,719

it'll be kind of trapped against the




95

00:03:14,919 --> 00:03:16,640

side with soil and then we'll flip it




96

00:03:16,840 --> 00:03:18,439

over the top of the soil and put some




97

00:03:18,639 --> 00:03:19,849

emitters in I think I'm going to put




98

00:03:20,049 --> 00:03:24,080

four and it currently only has the one




99

00:03:24,280 --> 00:03:25,939

right now okay so let me get them filled




100

00:03:26,139 --> 00:03:28,409

with soil




101

00:03:28,780 --> 00:03:32,968

[Music]




102

00:03:35,090 --> 00:03:37,539

so I've got my clippers extra tubing




103

00:03:37,739 --> 00:03:39,189

these are half gallon per hour emitters




104

00:03:39,389 --> 00:03:41,409

I want four of them in each container




105

00:03:41,609 --> 00:03:44,110

this stakes right here will allow me to




106

00:03:44,310 --> 00:03:46,149

run the tubing through them and then I




107

00:03:46,348 --> 00:03:47,890

can place them a lot easier with the




108

00:03:48,090 --> 00:03:49,840

help of the stakes I'm going to use a




109

00:03:50,039 --> 00:03:53,560

quarter inch cross fitting coupler and a




110

00:03:53,759 --> 00:03:56,050

quarter inch T and then this tool right




111

00:03:56,250 --> 00:03:58,539

here helps push the tubing onto the




112

00:03:58,739 --> 00:04:00,189

emitters which is super handy I'll show




113

00:04:00,389 --> 00:04:00,849

you that in a minute




114

00:04:01,049 --> 00:04:03,519

so before I cut anything on this end I'm




115

00:04:03,718 --> 00:04:05,920

going to make all four of my lines with




116

00:04:06,120 --> 00:04:07,959

the half gallon emitters on the end it's




117

00:04:08,158 --> 00:04:09,670

just easier to do it like this so I'm




118

00:04:09,870 --> 00:04:11,319

going to cut four lengths of this




119

00:04:11,519 --> 00:04:13,629

quarter inch tubing and I can trim them




120

00:04:13,829 --> 00:04:16,990

to size when I'm all done so you want to




121

00:04:17,189 --> 00:04:18,939

give yourself a little extra like a




122

00:04:19,139 --> 00:04:20,139

little bit more than you think you're




123

00:04:20,339 --> 00:04:23,110

going to need so there we go got my four




124

00:04:23,310 --> 00:04:25,718

pieces and I've got my four emitters




125

00:04:25,918 --> 00:04:28,449

right here so this tool is really handy




126

00:04:28,649 --> 00:04:29,829

I learned about this from one of you




127

00:04:30,029 --> 00:04:32,139

guys on a video where I was kind of




128

00:04:32,339 --> 00:04:34,149

complaining about how hard it is to put




129

00:04:34,348 --> 00:04:36,579

any midders and couplers onto these




130

00:04:36,779 --> 00:04:38,110

pieces of tubing it like hurts your




131

00:04:38,310 --> 00:04:40,059

fingers really bad so I didn't know this




132

00:04:40,259 --> 00:04:41,949

tool existed so you stick your let me




133

00:04:42,149 --> 00:04:45,389

just grab one you stick your emitter in




134

00:04:45,589 --> 00:04:48,699

to one end of this tool and then you




135

00:04:48,899 --> 00:04:54,509

feed your tube through and then you just




136

00:04:54,709 --> 00:04:58,899

clamp them down just like that how did I




137

00:04:59,098 --> 00:05:01,240

not know that this tool existed okay I'm




138

00:05:01,439 --> 00:05:03,430

also going to do that with my couplers




139

00:05:03,629 --> 00:05:06,670

here too I know that I need to have two




140

00:05:06,870 --> 00:05:08,829

of them coming off of the T these are




141

00:05:09,029 --> 00:05:11,259

harder the couplers are harder than the




142

00:05:11,459 --> 00:05:15,218

emitters are that's perfect and you can




143

00:05:15,418 --> 00:05:16,749

twist these around like you can twist




144

00:05:16,949 --> 00:05:18,968

the coupler and the tubing to get them




145

00:05:19,168 --> 00:05:21,009

to go you know to get the tubes to go




146

00:05:21,209 --> 00:05:22,300

where you want them to go and you can




147

00:05:22,500 --> 00:05:24,850

configure the interior of your pot with




148

00:05:25,050 --> 00:05:28,120

drips and couplers however you want but




149

00:05:28,319 --> 00:05:29,860

what I'm going to do is I'm going to cut




150

00:05:30,060 --> 00:05:32,079

this right here this is the one that's




151

00:05:32,279 --> 00:05:33,399

feeding through the bottom of the pot




152

00:05:33,598 --> 00:05:35,649

you want to make sure it doesn't go down




153

00:05:35,848 --> 00:05:38,319

into soil and then I'm going to attach




154

00:05:38,519 --> 00:05:40,838

it to one end of the cross so see I've




155

00:05:41,038 --> 00:05:43,329

got these two sides right here and then




156

00:05:43,528 --> 00:05:45,069

I'm going to use a little piece I've got




157

00:05:45,269 --> 00:05:45,699

a hook that




158

00:05:45,899 --> 00:05:47,350

to the cross I'm just gonna use a little




159

00:05:47,550 --> 00:05:52,660

piece of tubing okay so this is the tube




160

00:05:52,860 --> 00:05:54,160

that comes up from underneath the pot




161

00:05:54,360 --> 00:05:56,920

we've got a cross coupler that has this




162

00:05:57,120 --> 00:05:58,870

one with an emitter that will take care




163

00:05:59,069 --> 00:06:00,610

of kind of these plants on this side and




164

00:06:00,810 --> 00:06:02,470

then this one which will take care of




165

00:06:02,670 --> 00:06:04,300

the front plants and then on the other




166

00:06:04,500 --> 00:06:06,370

side of the cross I just put a little




167

00:06:06,569 --> 00:06:09,100

piece of tube to a tee coupler so that I




168

00:06:09,300 --> 00:06:11,020

could attach another tube with an




169

00:06:11,220 --> 00:06:12,490

emitter that will take care of this side




170

00:06:12,689 --> 00:06:14,560

and then the last tube with an emitter




171

00:06:14,759 --> 00:06:16,689

to take care of the back and that is




172

00:06:16,889 --> 00:06:18,100

what I'm going to be doing on all the




173

00:06:18,300 --> 00:06:20,530

other containers along the front of the




174

00:06:20,730 --> 00:06:22,689

barn so now I'm going to add a little




175

00:06:22,889 --> 00:06:25,060

bit of slow-release plant food and this




176

00:06:25,259 --> 00:06:27,129

just helps give a slow continuous feed




177

00:06:27,329 --> 00:06:29,020

to your plants even though I do come in




178

00:06:29,220 --> 00:06:31,420

on a weekly basis and do water-soluble




179

00:06:31,620 --> 00:06:34,090

fertilizer because I want these plants




180

00:06:34,290 --> 00:06:35,920

to perform really really well and you




181

00:06:36,120 --> 00:06:37,569

need to feed them really well in order




182

00:06:37,769 --> 00:06:39,400

for that to happen so now I'm going to




183

00:06:39,600 --> 00:06:41,560

plant my centerpiece first which is the




184

00:06:41,759 --> 00:06:43,449

purple fountain grass and this is an




185

00:06:43,649 --> 00:06:45,100

interesting container because you would




186

00:06:45,300 --> 00:06:46,960

think that I would back my centerpiece




187

00:06:47,160 --> 00:06:49,240

up to the wall just because the




188

00:06:49,439 --> 00:06:50,860

containers kind of backed up to the wall




189

00:06:51,060 --> 00:06:53,110

but you see these from three sides you




190

00:06:53,310 --> 00:06:54,610

do see them from this side because our




191

00:06:54,810 --> 00:06:56,620

driveway runs this way you see them from




192

00:06:56,819 --> 00:06:58,540

the other side and from the front so I




193

00:06:58,740 --> 00:07:00,370

really do want the flower interest to be




194

00:07:00,569 --> 00:07:03,250

all the way around the centerpiece so




195

00:07:03,449 --> 00:07:04,629

we're just gonna kind of put this right




196

00:07:04,829 --> 00:07:07,629

in the center here I think that'll be




197

00:07:07,829 --> 00:07:10,810

really really nice okay and then I kind




198

00:07:11,009 --> 00:07:12,250

of forgot how I was gonna arrange all




199

00:07:12,449 --> 00:07:14,439

the rest of these I dunno I want my




200

00:07:14,639 --> 00:07:16,509

sweet potato vine to be in the front so




201

00:07:16,709 --> 00:07:18,310

we'll place that one you notice my




202

00:07:18,509 --> 00:07:20,079

emitter goes right to the potato vines




203

00:07:20,279 --> 00:07:22,270

root ball because this is the most water




204

00:07:22,470 --> 00:07:24,009

hungry of all the plants I'm putting in




205

00:07:24,209 --> 00:07:25,720

so you just want to be mindful of that




206

00:07:25,920 --> 00:07:29,770

there we go I think I'm just gonna place




207

00:07:29,970 --> 00:07:32,410

everything else I'm gonna kind of go in




208

00:07:32,610 --> 00:07:36,879

thirds here I think we'll see how this




209

00:07:37,079 --> 00:07:41,689

ends up there's the blue




210

00:07:41,889 --> 00:07:47,460

so white white and white




211

00:07:47,660 --> 00:07:50,160

okay so supertunias are all kind of




212

00:07:50,360 --> 00:07:52,230

split into thirds except for this little




213

00:07:52,430 --> 00:07:54,540

space here I'm going to plant those and




214

00:07:54,740 --> 00:07:56,639

then the Lantana's I'm gonna back plant




215

00:07:56,839 --> 00:07:58,470

because my supertunia is more of a




216

00:07:58,670 --> 00:08:00,780

dramatic Spiller and the Lantana is a




217

00:08:00,980 --> 00:08:03,540

little bit more tall so we'll get these




218

00:08:03,740 --> 00:08:07,050

all in and you'll see the root balls are




219

00:08:07,250 --> 00:08:08,819

not very bound this one needs water i




220

00:08:09,019 --> 00:08:10,860

haven't watered anything yet today and




221

00:08:11,060 --> 00:08:14,790

and you really don't need to tease the




222

00:08:14,990 --> 00:08:17,218

roots unless it's like severely root




223

00:08:17,418 --> 00:08:19,829

bound which this time of year you really




224

00:08:20,029 --> 00:08:22,829

don't find that that often unless you're




225

00:08:23,029 --> 00:08:24,150

waiting to get your annuals into a




226

00:08:24,350 --> 00:08:25,620

little bit later like this right here




227

00:08:25,819 --> 00:08:28,650

you can see a lot of soil still it looks




228

00:08:28,850 --> 00:08:30,750

pretty nice oh my goodness I just love




229

00:08:30,949 --> 00:08:34,500

this combination sometimes it's really




230

00:08:34,700 --> 00:08:36,620

hard for me to want to try out different




231

00:08:36,820 --> 00:08:39,419

plants because sometimes I find things




232

00:08:39,620 --> 00:08:41,699

that I love I'm like supertunia Bordeaux




233

00:08:41,899 --> 00:08:44,370

for example I love that plant and I




234

00:08:44,570 --> 00:08:46,409

could use every single year all over in




235

00:08:46,610 --> 00:08:48,870

all of my containers but then like I




236

00:08:49,070 --> 00:08:50,429

don't know we wouldn't have very many




237

00:08:50,629 --> 00:08:52,139

interesting videos for you guys if




238

00:08:52,339 --> 00:08:54,359

that's all I plant it and it is fun




239

00:08:54,559 --> 00:08:55,859

because sometimes when you try out new




240

00:08:56,059 --> 00:08:58,859

things you find something that is that




241

00:08:59,059 --> 00:09:01,169

becomes your new favorite and like these




242

00:09:01,370 --> 00:09:03,419

supertunia blue skies I haven't ever




243

00:09:03,620 --> 00:09:05,399

planted this particular supertunia I




244

00:09:05,600 --> 00:09:07,709

think it's fairly new anyway it's almost




245

00:09:07,909 --> 00:09:09,479

kind of an electric blue color when I




246

00:09:09,679 --> 00:09:11,909

look at it close I think I'm gonna




247

00:09:12,110 --> 00:09:15,329

really enjoy that see the Lantana's will




248

00:09:15,529 --> 00:09:17,129

put on a little more height I think yeah




249

00:09:17,330 --> 00:09:20,039

12 to 24 inches so I definitely didn't




250

00:09:20,240 --> 00:09:21,269

want them right in the front of the




251

00:09:21,470 --> 00:09:23,159

container we'll let the supertunia and




252

00:09:23,360 --> 00:09:24,889

the potato vine do the spilling thing




253

00:09:25,089 --> 00:09:27,120

Lantana's will grow up and be kind of my




254

00:09:27,320 --> 00:09:28,969

filler plant and then I've got my




255

00:09:29,169 --> 00:09:30,990

centerpiece in the purple fountain grass




256

00:09:31,190 --> 00:09:34,259

and I want to do four of these in all




257

00:09:34,460 --> 00:09:36,629

four corners of the square here like




258

00:09:36,830 --> 00:09:39,929

that and it does seem like an awful lot




259

00:09:40,129 --> 00:09:43,019

of plants if these were supertunia




260

00:09:43,220 --> 00:09:45,689

vistas out of that series I definitely




261

00:09:45,889 --> 00:09:47,879

wouldn't plant that many in here because




262

00:09:48,080 --> 00:09:51,439

they grow like they're so vigorous but




263

00:09:51,639 --> 00:09:53,389

we'll see we'll see how vigorous they I




264

00:09:53,589 --> 00:09:55,250

mean all supertunias are really great




265

00:09:55,450 --> 00:09:57,740

growers and they're vigorous plants but




266

00:09:57,940 --> 00:09:58,878

there's nothing quite like those




267

00:09:59,078 --> 00:10:01,519

supertunia vistas that's why we use




268

00:10:01,720 --> 00:10:03,229

those in the hay racks up front because




269

00:10:03,429 --> 00:10:05,389

you can get away with using far less of




270

00:10:05,589 --> 00:10:08,089

those than really anything else and it




271

00:10:08,289 --> 00:10:09,559

kind of scoop everything away from the




272

00:10:09,759 --> 00:10:11,049

purple fountain grass a little bit




273

00:10:11,250 --> 00:10:13,578

because that will need to its own space




274

00:10:13,778 --> 00:10:17,599

and I think that that looks gorgeous so




275

00:10:17,799 --> 00:10:19,549

even though I have a drip system run to




276

00:10:19,750 --> 00:10:21,109

these containers every time I plant




277

00:10:21,309 --> 00:10:22,669

something new I always water it in with




278

00:10:22,870 --> 00:10:25,008

a hose to begin with just to make sure




279

00:10:25,208 --> 00:10:26,000

everything's settled




280

00:10:26,200 --> 00:10:27,258

I check around the root balls to make




281

00:10:27,458 --> 00:10:29,120

sure I didn't miss any places because




282

00:10:29,320 --> 00:10:30,139

you want to make sure that there's no




283

00:10:30,339 --> 00:10:31,849

air coming up against any other roots




284

00:10:32,049 --> 00:10:34,039

and I just want to settle everything in




285

00:10:34,240 --> 00:10:35,359

from overhead and then the drip system




286

00:10:35,559 --> 00:10:37,429

can take off from there and the only




287

00:10:37,629 --> 00:10:38,719

maintenance I will have in this




288

00:10:38,919 --> 00:10:41,870

container is weekly fertilizing and then




289

00:10:42,070 --> 00:10:43,729

possibly trimming toward the middle part




290

00:10:43,929 --> 00:10:45,318

of summer summer because these will




291

00:10:45,519 --> 00:10:47,089

probably reach the ground and I don't




292

00:10:47,289 --> 00:10:48,469

really want them trailing all over the




293

00:10:48,669 --> 00:10:49,909

place so I'll probably keep them level




294

00:10:50,110 --> 00:10:51,919

with the bottom of the pot but all of




295

00:10:52,120 --> 00:10:53,990

these do not require deadheading they're




296

00:10:54,190 --> 00:10:56,179

really great that way so now let me




297

00:10:56,379 --> 00:10:57,649

tackle the rest of these containers




298

00:10:57,850 --> 00:10:59,089

along the bottom of the bar and then




299

00:10:59,289 --> 00:11:00,349

we'll go up and do the hay rack here




300

00:11:00,549 --> 00:11:02,479

they are all planted and they look so




301

00:11:02,679 --> 00:11:05,029

pretty I really like this blend of color




302

00:11:05,230 --> 00:11:07,068

and there's no pink are you guys




303

00:11:07,269 --> 00:11:08,899

surprised so now that I'm done with




304

00:11:09,100 --> 00:11:10,818

these containers I need to tackle the




305

00:11:11,019 --> 00:11:12,859

hay rack up there and I'm trying to




306

00:11:13,059 --> 00:11:14,328

remember how I did that last year I




307

00:11:14,528 --> 00:11:16,969

think I used an extension ladder because




308

00:11:17,169 --> 00:11:18,828

only one side of the window opens and I




309

00:11:19,028 --> 00:11:20,508

couldn't reach all the way to the end of




310

00:11:20,708 --> 00:11:23,089

the hay rack on one side so I do think I




311

00:11:23,289 --> 00:11:25,008

need to get a ladder out and I don't




312

00:11:25,208 --> 00:11:26,209

even know if they're soil in there or




313

00:11:26,409 --> 00:11:28,099

not from last year we'll have to run




314

00:11:28,299 --> 00:11:29,539

upstairs and see it's also starting to




315

00:11:29,740 --> 00:11:31,729

rain a little bit out here hopefully it




316

00:11:31,929 --> 00:11:35,849

doesn't pick up it's nice today though




317

00:11:39,399 --> 00:11:44,069

yep dang so I need to clean that soil




318

00:11:44,269 --> 00:11:48,479

out and then put fresh stuff in and then




319

00:11:48,679 --> 00:11:50,339

plant it's a pretty view down to the




320

00:11:50,539 --> 00:11:54,969

garden though look at that I love it




321

00:11:55,169 --> 00:12:13,308

[Music]




322

00:12:14,759 --> 00:12:17,049

I just got dirt and Coco fiber all over




323

00:12:17,250 --> 00:12:20,159

my face so I got the ladder set up and




324

00:12:20,360 --> 00:12:23,469

then what I did was I like heaved the




325

00:12:23,669 --> 00:12:26,409

whole Coco fiber liner and soil out of




326

00:12:26,610 --> 00:12:28,000

the hay rack and then just tossed it




327

00:12:28,200 --> 00:12:31,479

inside so that's one way to clean out




328

00:12:31,679 --> 00:12:33,490

your Coco fiber liners I think I




329

00:12:33,690 --> 00:12:35,939

probably just made a huge mess upstairs




330

00:12:36,139 --> 00:12:39,549

yeah huge mess a lot safer doing it that




331

00:12:39,750 --> 00:12:40,929

way than trying to come down the ladder




332

00:12:41,129 --> 00:12:43,059

with it though and now I've got to fill




333

00:12:43,259 --> 00:12:45,250

those both up with soil so I've got




334

00:12:45,450 --> 00:12:47,169

brand new fresh soil in here else well




335

00:12:47,370 --> 00:12:48,849

as the slow release fertilizer you can




336

00:12:49,049 --> 00:12:50,529

kind of see it I already mixed it in and




337

00:12:50,730 --> 00:12:52,659

then I've got three one gallon per hour




338

00:12:52,860 --> 00:12:55,029

emitters and each one of these hair acts




339

00:12:55,230 --> 00:12:57,729

and then I went up the stairs and put




340

00:12:57,929 --> 00:12:59,859

the plants out the window here so I'm




341

00:13:00,059 --> 00:13:01,479

going to start arranging I think I'm




342

00:13:01,679 --> 00:13:04,149

gonna do two blues and two whites in




343

00:13:04,350 --> 00:13:06,309

each one see how this hay rack is it's




344

00:13:06,509 --> 00:13:08,409

split into two I had to do it that way




345

00:13:08,610 --> 00:13:11,500

to actually like make the width of this




346

00:13:11,700 --> 00:13:13,089

window because I couldn't find one that




347

00:13:13,289 --> 00:13:16,419

was the exact width and then maybe -




348

00:13:16,620 --> 00:13:19,299

potato vine like one on each side so




349

00:13:19,500 --> 00:13:22,059

that it's really even in the middle and




350

00:13:22,259 --> 00:13:24,849

then all the Lantana lemon zest will be




351

00:13:25,049 --> 00:13:27,699

kind of toward the back all right




352

00:13:27,899 --> 00:13:28,879

here we go




353

00:13:29,080 --> 00:13:44,378

[Music]




354

00:13:44,578 --> 00:13:47,779

while that was an adventure I ended up




355

00:13:47,980 --> 00:13:50,029

only putting three supertunias per hair




356

00:13:50,230 --> 00:13:53,209

act so I did a blue a white and then a




357

00:13:53,409 --> 00:13:56,539

blue and then I did three Lantana to




358

00:13:56,740 --> 00:13:58,459

back it because I do get quite large I




359

00:13:58,659 --> 00:14:01,729

didn't space that one quite right there




360

00:14:01,929 --> 00:14:02,709

we go




361

00:14:02,909 --> 00:14:05,209

only difference on the other side is I




362

00:14:05,409 --> 00:14:07,459

just put the one potato vine which




363

00:14:07,659 --> 00:14:09,709

hopefully will kind of grow I pointed it




364

00:14:09,909 --> 00:14:10,639

this direction




365

00:14:10,839 --> 00:14:12,169

hopefully it'll grow and look like it's




366

00:14:12,370 --> 00:14:13,909

right in the middle all right so let's




367

00:14:14,110 --> 00:14:15,349

go downstairs and see what it looks like




368

00:14:15,549 --> 00:14:16,729

from down there although I don't think




369

00:14:16,929 --> 00:14:17,868

it'll look that great




370

00:14:18,068 --> 00:14:19,519

until it starts filling in a little bit




371

00:14:19,720 --> 00:14:21,589

and spilling over the edges and then I'm




372

00:14:21,789 --> 00:14:23,058

gonna run inside quick and clean off my




373

00:14:23,259 --> 00:14:25,549

face before I continue punching Crum I




374

00:14:25,750 --> 00:14:26,839

forgot to close the window while I was




375

00:14:27,039 --> 00:14:29,269

up there but you can see the flowers I




376

00:14:29,470 --> 00:14:30,828

don't know how well it seems kind of




377

00:14:31,028 --> 00:14:32,808

dark in the camera I can see them a




378

00:14:33,009 --> 00:14:34,159

little bit peeking over the edge but




379

00:14:34,360 --> 00:14:35,448

once they start spilling it'll look




380

00:14:35,649 --> 00:14:37,909

amazing and I love that they will match




381

00:14:38,110 --> 00:14:40,159

the pots right underneath so I'm up on




382

00:14:40,360 --> 00:14:41,359

the west side of the house getting ready




383

00:14:41,559 --> 00:14:43,308

to plant these four beautiful urns that




384

00:14:43,509 --> 00:14:45,198

we placed recently I think this is




385

00:14:45,399 --> 00:14:46,729

actually the last planting project I'm




386

00:14:46,929 --> 00:14:48,409

going to get to this afternoon because I




387

00:14:48,610 --> 00:14:49,789

got a really late start and they're




388

00:14:49,990 --> 00:14:51,289

taking me a lot longer than I thought




389

00:14:51,490 --> 00:14:51,889

they would




390

00:14:52,089 --> 00:14:53,990

with all the drip and all that I did




391

00:14:54,190 --> 00:14:55,539

fill all of these with soil all the way




392

00:14:55,740 --> 00:14:58,698

already just now and I got the drip all




393

00:14:58,899 --> 00:15:00,078

set up because it's pretty much exactly




394

00:15:00,278 --> 00:15:02,059

the same as what I just did I'll show




395

00:15:02,259 --> 00:15:04,248

you a close-up I only did three emitters




396

00:15:04,448 --> 00:15:06,469

in each urn so now all I need to do is




397

00:15:06,669 --> 00:15:08,779

put my slow release fertilizer in show




398

00:15:08,980 --> 00:15:10,878

you the plants and get them in the urns




399

00:15:11,078 --> 00:15:13,309

first off before we go to the urns since




400

00:15:13,509 --> 00:15:14,688

I'm standing right here look at these




401

00:15:14,889 --> 00:15:17,868

climbing Colette roses aren't they the




402

00:15:18,068 --> 00:15:22,399

most beautiful things I just love them




403

00:15:22,600 --> 00:15:23,539

and they're starting to climb up the




404

00:15:23,740 --> 00:15:25,729

trellis Arbor whatever




405

00:15:25,929 --> 00:15:29,628

here comes Russell and I did plant some




406

00:15:29,828 --> 00:15:32,688

supertunia snowdrift in each one of the




407

00:15:32,889 --> 00:15:34,938

boxwood swoops here because I thought it




408

00:15:35,139 --> 00:15:36,258

would be fun to try it out in the




409

00:15:36,458 --> 00:15:38,479

landscape as opposed to containers like




410

00:15:38,679 --> 00:15:40,729

we did out at my parents house so we'll




411

00:15:40,929 --> 00:15:42,139

see how they do each one of these is




412

00:15:42,339 --> 00:15:43,729

supposed to get like two feet tall by




413

00:15:43,929 --> 00:15:47,058

four feet wide so I only planted six and




414

00:15:47,259 --> 00:15:48,558

I think they'll fill in this space just




415

00:15:48,759 --> 00:15:50,448

perfect and here are the plants that I




416

00:15:50,649 --> 00:15:52,639

chose so we're gonna do another purple




417

00:15:52,839 --> 00:15:54,469

fountain grass I got some great big ones




418

00:15:54,669 --> 00:15:55,909

for this project because I kind of




419

00:15:56,110 --> 00:15:56,569

wanted insta




420

00:15:56,769 --> 00:15:58,939

impact and then we're gonna surround




421

00:15:59,139 --> 00:16:01,279

those grasses with some diamond frost




422

00:16:01,480 --> 00:16:03,769

euphorbia which has that beautiful




423

00:16:03,970 --> 00:16:07,279

ethereal kind of cloud like I don't know




424

00:16:07,480 --> 00:16:09,289

it's just so pretty the little white




425

00:16:09,490 --> 00:16:11,629

blooms and then super Belle's white




426

00:16:11,830 --> 00:16:15,409

right here and then some dichondra




427

00:16:15,610 --> 00:16:17,870

silver Falls for our weeping foliage




428

00:16:18,070 --> 00:16:20,689

accent so last year I planted super




429

00:16:20,889 --> 00:16:22,639

Belle's white diamond frosty for BIA and




430

00:16:22,839 --> 00:16:26,000

then a skyrocket Pennisetum I think no




431

00:16:26,200 --> 00:16:27,649

desert plains Pennisetum in the




432

00:16:27,850 --> 00:16:29,479

containers in front of the vegetable




433

00:16:29,679 --> 00:16:32,479

garden and they were so gorgeous they




434

00:16:32,679 --> 00:16:34,578

did so well and these containers are not




435

00:16:34,778 --> 00:16:36,258

that far away I mean the vegetable




436

00:16:36,458 --> 00:16:38,120

gardens right there so these are gonna




437

00:16:38,320 --> 00:16:40,159

get pretty much the same conditions that




438

00:16:40,360 --> 00:16:42,379

that container had last year and so I




439

00:16:42,580 --> 00:16:43,909

kind of wanted to replicate that this




440

00:16:44,110 --> 00:16:46,039

year because I had such great luck also




441

00:16:46,240 --> 00:16:49,008

having the supertunia snowdrift in the




442

00:16:49,208 --> 00:16:51,379

boxwood so having the white on that side




443

00:16:51,580 --> 00:16:52,669

of the pathway and then drawing the




444

00:16:52,870 --> 00:16:54,979

white over into the containers I think




445

00:16:55,179 --> 00:16:57,500

will be a really restful thing to do and




446

00:16:57,700 --> 00:16:59,120

then I can start filling in the rest of




447

00:16:59,320 --> 00:17:01,309

the area with some other color but I




448

00:17:01,509 --> 00:17:03,039

think I'm gonna do one fountain grass




449

00:17:03,240 --> 00:17:06,049

maybe three of all the rest of the




450

00:17:06,250 --> 00:17:07,729

plants will have to see these are a




451

00:17:07,929 --> 00:17:09,229

little bit smaller than the planters I




452

00:17:09,429 --> 00:17:11,269

just planted so this is the esplanade




453

00:17:11,470 --> 00:17:14,029

urn from unique stone on a pillar that I




454

00:17:14,230 --> 00:17:15,559

cannot remember the name of these do not




455

00:17:15,759 --> 00:17:17,329

come together you have to order them




456

00:17:17,529 --> 00:17:20,899

separately and but they're beautiful I




457

00:17:21,099 --> 00:17:24,259

absolutely absolutely love them and you




458

00:17:24,459 --> 00:17:26,450

can see the drip the quarter inch drip




459

00:17:26,650 --> 00:17:28,190

comes right through the bottom in fact




460

00:17:28,390 --> 00:17:29,479

we showed this to you in another video




461

00:17:29,679 --> 00:17:31,460

we run the drip up because there is a




462

00:17:31,660 --> 00:17:33,079

hole through the pillar and then a hole




463

00:17:33,279 --> 00:17:34,669

the drainage hole up through the urn and




464

00:17:34,869 --> 00:17:37,069

then it comes in right here




465

00:17:37,269 --> 00:17:39,319

I put a Crofts coupler and then I did




466

00:17:39,519 --> 00:17:41,240

three emitters in this container just




467

00:17:41,440 --> 00:17:43,549

kind of split it into thirds so all of




468

00:17:43,750 --> 00:17:45,629

these urns are ready for planting




469

00:17:45,829 --> 00:18:09,408

[Music]




470

00:18:11,220 --> 00:18:13,399

alright guys they're all planted and I




471

00:18:13,599 --> 00:18:15,889

love love them I think they look like




472

00:18:16,089 --> 00:18:18,529

such an elegant classic mix of colors




473

00:18:18,730 --> 00:18:21,409

and textures I just love like the




474

00:18:21,609 --> 00:18:23,480

all-white look with that grass in the




475

00:18:23,680 --> 00:18:25,430

middle and everything of course will




476

00:18:25,630 --> 00:18:27,589

grow crazy they'll get really big I




477

00:18:27,789 --> 00:18:30,200

ended up doing the one grass and then I




478

00:18:30,400 --> 00:18:32,358

did three diamond frost euphorbias kind




479

00:18:32,558 --> 00:18:34,579

of set back from the edge and then in




480

00:18:34,779 --> 00:18:36,589

front of the diamond frost I did the




481

00:18:36,789 --> 00:18:38,509

dichondra silver falls and then in




482

00:18:38,710 --> 00:18:40,309

between each grouping of that I did the




483

00:18:40,509 --> 00:18:42,619

super Belles white and I'm hopeful that




484

00:18:42,819 --> 00:18:44,930

these will look just like the containers




485

00:18:45,130 --> 00:18:46,759

that were in front of the vegetable




486

00:18:46,960 --> 00:18:47,329

garden




487

00:18:47,529 --> 00:18:49,519

I hope they fill in and are as full of




488

00:18:49,720 --> 00:18:52,039

flowers as those were but I think it was




489

00:18:52,240 --> 00:18:53,690

kind of the right thing to do in terms




490

00:18:53,890 --> 00:18:56,899

of color because it looks so great with




491

00:18:57,099 --> 00:19:00,099

this style of urn as well as the white




492

00:19:00,299 --> 00:19:02,000

supertunias that we have on the other




493

00:19:02,200 --> 00:19:03,858

side I just love it and the North Pole




494

00:19:04,058 --> 00:19:06,229

Arbor vytas are doing so well we were




495

00:19:06,429 --> 00:19:07,849

looking at pictures the other day of




496

00:19:08,049 --> 00:19:09,950

what they look like when we planted them




497

00:19:10,150 --> 00:19:13,250

and they were about they were barely




498

00:19:13,450 --> 00:19:16,369

over this second like this middle I




499

00:19:16,569 --> 00:19:19,399

guess middle fence rail right here so




500

00:19:19,599 --> 00:19:21,470

they have grown significantly I mean




501

00:19:21,670 --> 00:19:23,839

putting on that much growth and then




502

00:19:24,039 --> 00:19:26,779

they've at least doubled if not more in




503

00:19:26,980 --> 00:19:29,509

size I can't wait until they become a




504

00:19:29,710 --> 00:19:31,220

solid green wall because can you imagine




505

00:19:31,420 --> 00:19:33,710

these urns set apart from any




506

00:19:33,910 --> 00:19:35,119

distractions you know in the background




507

00:19:35,319 --> 00:19:37,608

but just having that solid green while




508

00:19:37,808 --> 00:19:40,399

it's 10 to 15 feet tall I think the




509

00:19:40,599 --> 00:19:43,789

contrast will be beautiful we also did




510

00:19:43,990 --> 00:19:47,240

end up my mom found seven more North




511

00:19:47,440 --> 00:19:49,009

Pole Arbor vitaes ordered them in for us




512

00:19:49,210 --> 00:19:51,889

so we could finish off the hedge it's




513

00:19:52,089 --> 00:19:53,269

gonna look a little funny for a while




514

00:19:53,470 --> 00:19:56,419

but these will catch up but because I




515

00:19:56,619 --> 00:19:58,669

didn't realize I hadn't really thought




516

00:19:58,869 --> 00:20:01,069

of the urns I was going to do a big




517

00:20:01,269 --> 00:20:03,169

evergreen right here and so the the




518

00:20:03,369 --> 00:20:04,789

arbor vitae hedge was gonna kind of




519

00:20:04,990 --> 00:20:07,099

disappear behind that big spruce but




520

00:20:07,299 --> 00:20:09,139

then I decided to go with the urns so I




521

00:20:09,339 --> 00:20:11,000

need to continue my green wall all the




522

00:20:11,200 --> 00:20:12,710

way down to the birch and then this is




523

00:20:12,910 --> 00:20:14,479

where I'll start in with my bigger




524

00:20:14,679 --> 00:20:16,460

plantings of evergreens so that this




525

00:20:16,660 --> 00:20:18,200

will be my disappearing wall kind of




526

00:20:18,400 --> 00:20:20,180

like right in here I hope that makes




527

00:20:20,380 --> 00:20:21,609

sense but




528

00:20:21,809 --> 00:20:23,559

this has been kind of an evolving




529

00:20:23,759 --> 00:20:25,599

process just like everything is in our




530

00:20:25,799 --> 00:20:28,899

garden so it's been really fun to kind




531

00:20:29,099 --> 00:20:30,849

of see it go from what it wasn't we




532

00:20:31,049 --> 00:20:33,669

moved in to what it is today and what it




533

00:20:33,869 --> 00:20:35,409

I can kind of see the potential for what




534

00:20:35,609 --> 00:20:37,599

it will be here and even like a couple




535

00:20:37,799 --> 00:20:39,399

years or five years or ten years it's




536

00:20:39,599 --> 00:20:41,319

going to be amazing and the last little




537

00:20:41,519 --> 00:20:43,269

bit is still yet to be mulched this is




538

00:20:43,470 --> 00:20:45,039

where we ended up we have our second




539

00:20:45,240 --> 00:20:47,859

mulch over there we are just needing




540

00:20:48,059 --> 00:20:50,409

extra time to get that done but we're




541

00:20:50,609 --> 00:20:52,899

almost there so anyway guys that is it




542

00:20:53,099 --> 00:20:55,389

for this video I got 2 big groupings of




543

00:20:55,589 --> 00:20:57,490

pots done which makes me happy they're




544

00:20:57,690 --> 00:21:00,159

all on drip so after today after I water




545

00:21:00,359 --> 00:21:02,200

them all in they are good to go for this




546

00:21:02,400 --> 00:21:03,909

season in terms of that I don't have




547

00:21:04,109 --> 00:21:06,129

like a daily maintenance tour with them




548

00:21:06,329 --> 00:21:08,019

which is awesome and that's what takes a




549

00:21:08,220 --> 00:21:09,519

little extra time getting them all set




550

00:21:09,720 --> 00:21:12,549

up like that but it's 100% worth it




551

00:21:12,750 --> 00:21:14,289

because I can enjoy them so much more




552

00:21:14,490 --> 00:21:15,849

when I'm not feeling like I'm a slave to




553

00:21:16,049 --> 00:21:17,980

them every day you know making sure that




554

00:21:18,180 --> 00:21:20,079

either myself or somebody else is here




555

00:21:20,279 --> 00:21:22,419

to give them water so anyway thank you




556

00:21:22,619 --> 00:21:23,740

guys so much for watching hope you




557

00:21:23,940 --> 00:21:25,299

enjoyed this video and we will see you




558

00:21:25,500 --> 00:21:26,740

in the next one bye

1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,420

hey guys good morning so we're over here




2

00:00:01,620 --> 00:00:02,948

on the west side of our property right




3

00:00:03,149 --> 00:00:04,719

where we just put this new area in with




4

00:00:04,919 --> 00:00:06,908

the brick walkway I've planted a few




5

00:00:07,108 --> 00:00:08,500

things in this corner so far but I'm




6

00:00:08,699 --> 00:00:10,630

getting ready to plant this grouping of




7

00:00:10,830 --> 00:00:13,120

pinpoint blue Cypress I want this whole




8

00:00:13,320 --> 00:00:15,069

corner to be pretty heavy with winter




9

00:00:15,269 --> 00:00:17,409

interest I've planted a couple there's a




10

00:00:17,609 --> 00:00:20,079

red tip Norway spruce right here I've




11

00:00:20,278 --> 00:00:22,568

got a weeping Colorado blue spruce over




12

00:00:22,768 --> 00:00:24,519

there on the other side for some blue




13

00:00:24,719 --> 00:00:26,379

interest I think that these are gonna




14

00:00:26,579 --> 00:00:29,440

create a beautiful dramatic vertical




15

00:00:29,640 --> 00:00:31,539

element because these grow about 15 to




16

00:00:31,739 --> 00:00:33,640

20 feet tall and only get about 5 to 6




17

00:00:33,840 --> 00:00:36,219

feet wide so they'll create that drama




18

00:00:36,420 --> 00:00:37,989

without taking up an enormous amount of




19

00:00:38,189 --> 00:00:40,390

real estate down below we do have a




20

00:00:40,590 --> 00:00:42,788

weeping Alaskan cedar back here what you




21

00:00:42,988 --> 00:00:44,409

can see is not planted yet because I've




22

00:00:44,609 --> 00:00:46,149

been avoiding it check out how big of a




23

00:00:46,350 --> 00:00:48,309

hole we have to dig so I'm just kind of




24

00:00:48,509 --> 00:00:50,079

procrastinating on the planting of this




25

00:00:50,280 --> 00:00:51,878

one it's a gorgeous tree though it's




26

00:00:52,079 --> 00:00:53,288

gonna be back toward the corner just




27

00:00:53,488 --> 00:00:55,809

maybe like a foot or two more so that'll




28

00:00:56,009 --> 00:00:57,908

be our very back layer then I've got a




29

00:00:58,109 --> 00:01:00,459

spring snow crab apple and a Chanticleer




30

00:01:00,659 --> 00:01:03,608

pear autumn brilliants serviceberry




31

00:01:03,808 --> 00:01:07,689

right here and then our other evergreen




32

00:01:07,890 --> 00:01:10,509

interest so far is the north pole arbor




33

00:01:10,709 --> 00:01:11,950

vitae hedge and you can see that I was




34

00:01:12,150 --> 00:01:15,219

able to find a few more North Pole arms




35

00:01:15,420 --> 00:01:16,988

to finish up our hedge all the way to




36

00:01:17,188 --> 00:01:19,090

the birch tree here my mom was finally




37

00:01:19,290 --> 00:01:20,619

able to order some of these in at the




38

00:01:20,819 --> 00:01:22,569

garden center so we snapped him up right




39

00:01:22,769 --> 00:01:22,899

away




40

00:01:23,099 --> 00:01:24,730

so they will catch up but it's gonna




41

00:01:24,930 --> 00:01:26,469

look a little funny for a little bit but




42

00:01:26,670 --> 00:01:27,789

they'll catch up with the others and




43

00:01:27,989 --> 00:01:29,950

then we'll have a nice green wall all




44

00:01:30,150 --> 00:01:31,509

the way to the birch and then all of




45

00:01:31,709 --> 00:01:33,099

this will be heavily planted to where




46

00:01:33,299 --> 00:01:35,709

you won't see the ending of the hedge




47

00:01:35,909 --> 00:01:38,019

you'll see the top of it but this will




48

00:01:38,219 --> 00:01:39,819

be so heavily planted that it'll just




49

00:01:40,019 --> 00:01:41,528

kind of disappear behind whatever




50

00:01:41,728 --> 00:01:44,109

whatever ends up here um so this




51

00:01:44,310 --> 00:01:46,988

pinpoint blue is a zone 5 through 7 and




52

00:01:47,188 --> 00:01:48,878

they're actually native to Oregon and




53

00:01:49,078 --> 00:01:51,609

California and they've been known as the




54

00:01:51,810 --> 00:01:54,609

port orford cedar but I just love their




55

00:01:54,810 --> 00:01:56,948

feathery ferny looking texture and that




56

00:01:57,149 --> 00:01:58,689

kind of cool blue color that they




57

00:01:58,890 --> 00:02:00,518

provide one thing you do need to know




58

00:02:00,718 --> 00:02:03,009

about these is they do require excellent




59

00:02:03,209 --> 00:02:04,149

drainage you don't want to put them in




60

00:02:04,349 --> 00:02:06,609

any low-lying areas where water pools or




61

00:02:06,810 --> 00:02:09,789

in really like heavy clay soil it holds




62

00:02:09,989 --> 00:02:11,320

on to a lot of water I think this is




63

00:02:11,520 --> 00:02:12,969

going to be a perfect spot because as




64

00:02:13,169 --> 00:02:13,750

you can see




65

00:02:13,949 --> 00:02:16,118

the landscape slopes down right here so




66

00:02:16,318 --> 00:02:18,100

all the water will kind of like run away




67

00:02:18,300 --> 00:02:20,020

from the root balls of the plants and we




68

00:02:20,219 --> 00:02:23,500

have a brown irrigation tubing drip




69

00:02:23,699 --> 00:02:25,330

tubing underneath all of this mulch and




70

00:02:25,530 --> 00:02:27,368

usually if I have a water hungry plant




71

00:02:27,568 --> 00:02:29,680

like the birch tree I'll run even extra




72

00:02:29,879 --> 00:02:31,180

emitters to those root balls but with




73

00:02:31,379 --> 00:02:32,890

these I'll just allow the brown tubing




74

00:02:33,090 --> 00:02:35,410

to do the job and it should be fine we




75

00:02:35,610 --> 00:02:37,509

get really really hot here so I think




76

00:02:37,709 --> 00:02:39,700

the amount of irrigation these will get




77

00:02:39,900 --> 00:02:41,200

will be perfect but it's just something




78

00:02:41,400 --> 00:02:42,670

that we have to adjust from year to year




79

00:02:42,870 --> 00:02:44,740

depending on if they're newly planted




80

00:02:44,939 --> 00:02:46,150

you know they need a little extra water




81

00:02:46,349 --> 00:02:48,670

and then every year past that it's less




82

00:02:48,870 --> 00:02:51,189

and less as they get more established so




83

00:02:51,389 --> 00:02:52,420

anyway I think what I'm going to do is




84

00:02:52,620 --> 00:02:53,618

get him in the ground and then we'll




85

00:02:53,818 --> 00:02:57,289

take a look and see how the area looks




86

00:03:09,770 --> 00:03:19,240

[Music]




87

00:03:19,439 --> 00:03:21,040

all right all three of them are in I




88

00:03:21,240 --> 00:03:23,380

think they look so great I can't wait to




89

00:03:23,580 --> 00:03:24,580

see him grow and I think they'll really




90

00:03:24,780 --> 00:03:26,410

like this spot because one the drainage




91

00:03:26,610 --> 00:03:28,330

is really good and two they'll get




92

00:03:28,530 --> 00:03:30,490

enough Sun they like either full Sun or




93

00:03:30,689 --> 00:03:32,800

part Sun I would say a minimum of at




94

00:03:33,000 --> 00:03:34,480

least six hours to keep him really happy




95

00:03:34,680 --> 00:03:36,760

and I think the way that they're planted




96

00:03:36,960 --> 00:03:38,469

in this trio was kind of perfect I was




97

00:03:38,669 --> 00:03:40,120

really concerned only with two views so




98

00:03:40,319 --> 00:03:41,770

the one when you're walking down the




99

00:03:41,969 --> 00:03:44,620

brick pathway and then also the one when




100

00:03:44,819 --> 00:03:46,090

you're coming down our driveway which is




101

00:03:46,289 --> 00:03:47,920

right in front of me I wanted to be able




102

00:03:48,120 --> 00:03:50,020

to see all of them individually but I




103

00:03:50,219 --> 00:03:52,000

also wanted to stay away from everything




104

00:03:52,199 --> 00:03:54,189

else that's in this area so there wasn't




105

00:03:54,389 --> 00:03:56,560

too much competition in the end and I




106

00:03:56,759 --> 00:03:57,910

didn't want the front one to come out




107

00:03:58,110 --> 00:03:59,890

too far in maturity so at maturity it'll




108

00:04:00,090 --> 00:04:01,900

probably be about here which gives me a




109

00:04:02,099 --> 00:04:03,820

little bit of space for one more layer




110

00:04:04,020 --> 00:04:05,800

down of plants which I think will be a




111

00:04:06,000 --> 00:04:07,540

nice softer transition instead of just




112

00:04:07,740 --> 00:04:09,880

pathway and then something super tall I




113

00:04:10,080 --> 00:04:11,980

think well we're out here we're gonna go




114

00:04:12,180 --> 00:04:13,540

ahead and try to tackle planting this




115

00:04:13,740 --> 00:04:15,460

right here because we've got all of our




116

00:04:15,659 --> 00:04:18,310

stuff out and I did want to get the




117

00:04:18,509 --> 00:04:19,658

north pole our providers in the ground




118

00:04:19,858 --> 00:04:21,759

as well I wanted to talk about these




119

00:04:21,959 --> 00:04:24,460

just a little bit because there are




120

00:04:24,660 --> 00:04:25,990

another really great option like the




121

00:04:26,189 --> 00:04:29,350

Cypress for a narrow evergreen planting




122

00:04:29,550 --> 00:04:30,790

which are kind of hard to find it's hard




123

00:04:30,990 --> 00:04:32,170

to find really beautiful evergreens that




124

00:04:32,370 --> 00:04:34,210

stay small enough I mean we chose these




125

00:04:34,410 --> 00:04:35,740

specifically because they only grow




126

00:04:35,939 --> 00:04:38,530

about 3 to 5 feet wide at maturity and




127

00:04:38,730 --> 00:04:40,600

as they you can see if you look down the




128

00:04:40,800 --> 00:04:42,310

lane here we don't have an enormous




129

00:04:42,509 --> 00:04:44,590

amount of space for them to grow so I




130

00:04:44,790 --> 00:04:46,090

thought it would be perfect and they've




131

00:04:46,290 --> 00:04:49,389

done so so well so we planted these I




132

00:04:49,589 --> 00:04:51,370

think two summers ago when it was a




133

00:04:51,569 --> 00:04:53,230

hundred and four degrees outside which I




134

00:04:53,430 --> 00:04:55,270

do not recommend you doing but we only




135

00:04:55,470 --> 00:04:58,600

lost one which is amazing usually when




136

00:04:58,800 --> 00:05:00,040

you're planting that many of anything




137

00:05:00,240 --> 00:05:01,810

you'll have some loss just from either




138

00:05:02,009 --> 00:05:04,240

shock you know from transitioning you




139

00:05:04,439 --> 00:05:06,129

know from pot to ground you might have a




140

00:05:06,329 --> 00:05:08,110

gopher come through and disrupt the root




141

00:05:08,310 --> 00:05:10,389

system your drip system might not be




142

00:05:10,589 --> 00:05:12,218

working in a certain area so whatever




143

00:05:12,418 --> 00:05:14,050

the case may be I feel like that ratio




144

00:05:14,250 --> 00:05:16,329

was excellent and they grow about 10 to




145

00:05:16,529 --> 00:05:18,069

15 feet tall so it's gonna create this




146

00:05:18,269 --> 00:05:20,800

beautiful green wall back here and I




147

00:05:21,000 --> 00:05:22,569

just wanted to continue that on like I




148

00:05:22,769 --> 00:05:24,968

kind of explained earlier but they stay




149

00:05:25,168 --> 00:05:27,129

this nice green color and they're just a




150

00:05:27,329 --> 00:05:29,500

fast grower when we planted these they




151

00:05:29,699 --> 00:05:31,990

only came about right up to right above




152

00:05:32,189 --> 00:05:33,129

this rail right




153

00:05:33,329 --> 00:05:35,050

here the second rail down and you can




154

00:05:35,250 --> 00:05:38,079

see on this one how much it's growth




155

00:05:38,279 --> 00:05:39,869

it's put on so it's only about this tall




156

00:05:40,069 --> 00:05:42,699

it's put on this much growth and they've




157

00:05:42,899 --> 00:05:45,579

at least doubled if not more in width so




158

00:05:45,779 --> 00:05:47,559

I'm just really pleased with how these




159

00:05:47,759 --> 00:05:49,179

have done they actually lasted through




160

00:05:49,379 --> 00:05:50,949

our really bad winter here too right




161

00:05:51,149 --> 00:05:52,809

yeah they did they went through our




162

00:05:53,009 --> 00:05:55,059

really bad winter where we had 52 inches




163

00:05:55,259 --> 00:05:56,709

of snow and negative 17 degree




164

00:05:56,908 --> 00:05:59,649

temperatures and look at them they're




165

00:05:59,848 --> 00:06:01,569

still thriving and doing excellent so




166

00:06:01,769 --> 00:06:03,189

I'm excited to get these in the ground




167

00:06:03,389 --> 00:06:04,869

so that this area is kind of buttoned up




168

00:06:05,069 --> 00:06:07,460

for now




169

00:06:14,259 --> 00:06:17,659

[Music]




170

00:06:23,019 --> 00:06:26,139

[Music]




171

00:06:32,410 --> 00:06:35,539

[Music]




172

00:06:44,668 --> 00:06:50,870

oh there goes the camera yeah




173

00:06:52,000 --> 00:06:54,119

we got it all planted except I'm not




174

00:06:54,319 --> 00:06:55,740

sure how much of the planting of this




175

00:06:55,939 --> 00:06:56,910

cedar you just saw because we




176

00:06:57,110 --> 00:06:58,528

accidentally knocked Aaron's camera over




177

00:06:58,728 --> 00:07:00,689

right in the middle of planting it and




178

00:07:00,889 --> 00:07:02,579

it was a beast to dig the hole big




179

00:07:02,779 --> 00:07:04,860

enough for this plant I'm so glad it's




180

00:07:05,060 --> 00:07:06,569

in the ground we were taking turns




181

00:07:06,769 --> 00:07:08,670

digging the hole make sure there was




182

00:07:08,870 --> 00:07:11,129

enough room for it and we did tossin bio




183

00:07:11,329 --> 00:07:12,838

tone starter fertilizer in the hole as




184

00:07:13,038 --> 00:07:14,999

well as all of the holes for everything




185

00:07:15,199 --> 00:07:17,520

we planted today so we went ahead and




186

00:07:17,720 --> 00:07:19,619

planted five of the north pole arbor




187

00:07:19,819 --> 00:07:21,869

vitae is on this side of the birch and




188

00:07:22,069 --> 00:07:23,069

we took a tape measure to get our




189

00:07:23,269 --> 00:07:25,379

spacing right we measured how far apart




190

00:07:25,579 --> 00:07:27,540

we spaced the other ones it was about 40




191

00:07:27,740 --> 00:07:30,088

inches so that's how we spaced these we




192

00:07:30,288 --> 00:07:32,309

had a couple left over I over bought a




193

00:07:32,509 --> 00:07:34,649

little bit so we decided just to carry




194

00:07:34,848 --> 00:07:37,199

the hedge just a little bit further I'll




195

00:07:37,399 --> 00:07:39,209

go get one more and so we'll have a




196

00:07:39,408 --> 00:07:41,129

little trio right here and I just think




197

00:07:41,329 --> 00:07:42,959

that'll be a nice green wall that will




198

00:07:43,158 --> 00:07:44,819

kind of disappear that's what I want to




199

00:07:45,019 --> 00:07:46,139

have happen I would kind of want this




200

00:07:46,339 --> 00:07:48,028

wall of arms just to disappear in the




201

00:07:48,228 --> 00:07:49,379

background and really set apart




202

00:07:49,579 --> 00:07:51,300

everything that's in front of it so




203

00:07:51,500 --> 00:07:53,420

anyway I hope you guys found this video




204

00:07:53,620 --> 00:07:56,939

interesting or maybe you got some ideas




205

00:07:57,139 --> 00:07:58,439

from it for something that's really good




206

00:07:58,639 --> 00:08:00,449

for a small area in your garden for a




207

00:08:00,649 --> 00:08:03,149

screening plant the Cypress or the arbor




208

00:08:03,348 --> 00:08:04,439

vitae they're both really good for that




209

00:08:04,639 --> 00:08:06,990

really good as a dramatic kind of accent




210

00:08:07,189 --> 00:08:08,338

as well I mean you don't have to plant




211

00:08:08,538 --> 00:08:09,629

them in a row you can plant them in a




212

00:08:09,829 --> 00:08:11,459

little grouping like this for just a




213

00:08:11,658 --> 00:08:14,399

really huge impact planting in the years




214

00:08:14,598 --> 00:08:15,990

to come I think it's really pretty even




215

00:08:16,189 --> 00:08:17,519

now though I'm excited to get some more




216

00:08:17,718 --> 00:08:19,860

color in here and it's really fun just




217

00:08:20,060 --> 00:08:21,689

to plant this whole thing just mixed




218

00:08:21,889 --> 00:08:23,850

with some deciduous trees with different




219

00:08:24,050 --> 00:08:26,189

colors for fall and then a lot of




220

00:08:26,389 --> 00:08:27,600

evergreens as well so that it looks




221

00:08:27,800 --> 00:08:29,309

pretty all year round and I'm sure




222

00:08:29,509 --> 00:08:30,509

Aaron's gonna come out here with




223

00:08:30,709 --> 00:08:33,000

Christmas lights this year it'll be




224

00:08:33,200 --> 00:08:34,258

interesting to see what he does so




225

00:08:34,458 --> 00:08:35,758

anyway thank you guys so much for




226

00:08:35,958 --> 00:08:37,049

watching this video and we will see you




227

00:08:37,250 --> 00:08:40,028

in the next one bye




228

00:08:41,580 --> 00:08:43,639

you

1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,420

hey guys good morning so we're over here




2

00:00:01,620 --> 00:00:02,948

on the west side of our property right




3

00:00:03,149 --> 00:00:04,719

where we just put this new area in with




4

00:00:04,919 --> 00:00:06,908

the brick walkway I've planted a few




5

00:00:07,108 --> 00:00:08,500

things in this corner so far but I'm




6

00:00:08,699 --> 00:00:10,630

getting ready to plant this grouping of




7

00:00:10,830 --> 00:00:13,120

pinpoint blue Cypress I want this whole




8

00:00:13,320 --> 00:00:15,069

corner to be pretty heavy with winter




9

00:00:15,269 --> 00:00:17,409

interest I've planted a couple there's a




10

00:00:17,609 --> 00:00:20,079

red tip Norway spruce right here I've




11

00:00:20,278 --> 00:00:22,568

got a weeping Colorado blue spruce over




12

00:00:22,768 --> 00:00:24,519

there on the other side for some blue




13

00:00:24,719 --> 00:00:26,379

interest I think that these are gonna




14

00:00:26,579 --> 00:00:29,440

create a beautiful dramatic vertical




15

00:00:29,640 --> 00:00:31,539

element because these grow about 15 to




16

00:00:31,739 --> 00:00:33,640

20 feet tall and only get about 5 to 6




17

00:00:33,840 --> 00:00:36,219

feet wide so they'll create that drama




18

00:00:36,420 --> 00:00:37,989

without taking up an enormous amount of




19

00:00:38,189 --> 00:00:40,390

real estate down below we do have a




20

00:00:40,590 --> 00:00:42,788

weeping Alaskan cedar back here what you




21

00:00:42,988 --> 00:00:44,409

can see is not planted yet because I've




22

00:00:44,609 --> 00:00:46,149

been avoiding it check out how big of a




23

00:00:46,350 --> 00:00:48,309

hole we have to dig so I'm just kind of




24

00:00:48,509 --> 00:00:50,079

procrastinating on the planting of this




25

00:00:50,280 --> 00:00:51,878

one it's a gorgeous tree though it's




26

00:00:52,079 --> 00:00:53,288

gonna be back toward the corner just




27

00:00:53,488 --> 00:00:55,809

maybe like a foot or two more so that'll




28

00:00:56,009 --> 00:00:57,908

be our very back layer then I've got a




29

00:00:58,109 --> 00:01:00,459

spring snow crab apple and a Chanticleer




30

00:01:00,659 --> 00:01:03,608

pear autumn brilliants serviceberry




31

00:01:03,808 --> 00:01:07,689

right here and then our other evergreen




32

00:01:07,890 --> 00:01:10,509

interest so far is the north pole arbor




33

00:01:10,709 --> 00:01:11,950

vitae hedge and you can see that I was




34

00:01:12,150 --> 00:01:15,219

able to find a few more North Pole arms




35

00:01:15,420 --> 00:01:16,988

to finish up our hedge all the way to




36

00:01:17,188 --> 00:01:19,090

the birch tree here my mom was finally




37

00:01:19,290 --> 00:01:20,619

able to order some of these in at the




38

00:01:20,819 --> 00:01:22,569

garden center so we snapped him up right




39

00:01:22,769 --> 00:01:22,899

away




40

00:01:23,099 --> 00:01:24,730

so they will catch up but it's gonna




41

00:01:24,930 --> 00:01:26,469

look a little funny for a little bit but




42

00:01:26,670 --> 00:01:27,789

they'll catch up with the others and




43

00:01:27,989 --> 00:01:29,950

then we'll have a nice green wall all




44

00:01:30,150 --> 00:01:31,509

the way to the birch and then all of




45

00:01:31,709 --> 00:01:33,099

this will be heavily planted to where




46

00:01:33,299 --> 00:01:35,709

you won't see the ending of the hedge




47

00:01:35,909 --> 00:01:38,019

you'll see the top of it but this will




48

00:01:38,219 --> 00:01:39,819

be so heavily planted that it'll just




49

00:01:40,019 --> 00:01:41,528

kind of disappear behind whatever




50

00:01:41,728 --> 00:01:44,109

whatever ends up here um so this




51

00:01:44,310 --> 00:01:46,988

pinpoint blue is a zone 5 through 7 and




52

00:01:47,188 --> 00:01:48,878

they're actually native to Oregon and




53

00:01:49,078 --> 00:01:51,609

California and they've been known as the




54

00:01:51,810 --> 00:01:54,609

port orford cedar but I just love their




55

00:01:54,810 --> 00:01:56,948

feathery ferny looking texture and that




56

00:01:57,149 --> 00:01:58,689

kind of cool blue color that they




57

00:01:58,890 --> 00:02:00,518

provide one thing you do need to know




58

00:02:00,718 --> 00:02:03,009

about these is they do require excellent




59

00:02:03,209 --> 00:02:04,149

drainage you don't want to put them in




60

00:02:04,349 --> 00:02:06,609

any low-lying areas where water pools or




61

00:02:06,810 --> 00:02:09,789

in really like heavy clay soil it holds




62

00:02:09,989 --> 00:02:11,320

on to a lot of water I think this is




63

00:02:11,520 --> 00:02:12,969

going to be a perfect spot because as




64

00:02:13,169 --> 00:02:13,750

you can see




65

00:02:13,949 --> 00:02:16,118

the landscape slopes down right here so




66

00:02:16,318 --> 00:02:18,100

all the water will kind of like run away




67

00:02:18,300 --> 00:02:20,020

from the root balls of the plants and we




68

00:02:20,219 --> 00:02:23,500

have a brown irrigation tubing drip




69

00:02:23,699 --> 00:02:25,330

tubing underneath all of this mulch and




70

00:02:25,530 --> 00:02:27,368

usually if I have a water hungry plant




71

00:02:27,568 --> 00:02:29,680

like the birch tree I'll run even extra




72

00:02:29,879 --> 00:02:31,180

emitters to those root balls but with




73

00:02:31,379 --> 00:02:32,890

these I'll just allow the brown tubing




74

00:02:33,090 --> 00:02:35,410

to do the job and it should be fine we




75

00:02:35,610 --> 00:02:37,509

get really really hot here so I think




76

00:02:37,709 --> 00:02:39,700

the amount of irrigation these will get




77

00:02:39,900 --> 00:02:41,200

will be perfect but it's just something




78

00:02:41,400 --> 00:02:42,670

that we have to adjust from year to year




79

00:02:42,870 --> 00:02:44,740

depending on if they're newly planted




80

00:02:44,939 --> 00:02:46,150

you know they need a little extra water




81

00:02:46,349 --> 00:02:48,670

and then every year past that it's less




82

00:02:48,870 --> 00:02:51,189

and less as they get more established so




83

00:02:51,389 --> 00:02:52,420

anyway I think what I'm going to do is




84

00:02:52,620 --> 00:02:53,618

get him in the ground and then we'll




85

00:02:53,818 --> 00:02:57,289

take a look and see how the area looks




86

00:03:09,770 --> 00:03:19,240

[Music]




87

00:03:19,439 --> 00:03:21,040

all right all three of them are in I




88

00:03:21,240 --> 00:03:23,380

think they look so great I can't wait to




89

00:03:23,580 --> 00:03:24,580

see him grow and I think they'll really




90

00:03:24,780 --> 00:03:26,410

like this spot because one the drainage




91

00:03:26,610 --> 00:03:28,330

is really good and two they'll get




92

00:03:28,530 --> 00:03:30,490

enough Sun they like either full Sun or




93

00:03:30,689 --> 00:03:32,800

part Sun I would say a minimum of at




94

00:03:33,000 --> 00:03:34,480

least six hours to keep him really happy




95

00:03:34,680 --> 00:03:36,760

and I think the way that they're planted




96

00:03:36,960 --> 00:03:38,469

in this trio was kind of perfect I was




97

00:03:38,669 --> 00:03:40,120

really concerned only with two views so




98

00:03:40,319 --> 00:03:41,770

the one when you're walking down the




99

00:03:41,969 --> 00:03:44,620

brick pathway and then also the one when




100

00:03:44,819 --> 00:03:46,090

you're coming down our driveway which is




101

00:03:46,289 --> 00:03:47,920

right in front of me I wanted to be able




102

00:03:48,120 --> 00:03:50,020

to see all of them individually but I




103

00:03:50,219 --> 00:03:52,000

also wanted to stay away from everything




104

00:03:52,199 --> 00:03:54,189

else that's in this area so there wasn't




105

00:03:54,389 --> 00:03:56,560

too much competition in the end and I




106

00:03:56,759 --> 00:03:57,910

didn't want the front one to come out




107

00:03:58,110 --> 00:03:59,890

too far in maturity so at maturity it'll




108

00:04:00,090 --> 00:04:01,900

probably be about here which gives me a




109

00:04:02,099 --> 00:04:03,820

little bit of space for one more layer




110

00:04:04,020 --> 00:04:05,800

down of plants which I think will be a




111

00:04:06,000 --> 00:04:07,540

nice softer transition instead of just




112

00:04:07,740 --> 00:04:09,880

pathway and then something super tall I




113

00:04:10,080 --> 00:04:11,980

think well we're out here we're gonna go




114

00:04:12,180 --> 00:04:13,540

ahead and try to tackle planting this




115

00:04:13,740 --> 00:04:15,460

right here because we've got all of our




116

00:04:15,659 --> 00:04:18,310

stuff out and I did want to get the




117

00:04:18,509 --> 00:04:19,658

north pole our providers in the ground




118

00:04:19,858 --> 00:04:21,759

as well I wanted to talk about these




119

00:04:21,959 --> 00:04:24,460

just a little bit because there are




120

00:04:24,660 --> 00:04:25,990

another really great option like the




121

00:04:26,189 --> 00:04:29,350

Cypress for a narrow evergreen planting




122

00:04:29,550 --> 00:04:30,790

which are kind of hard to find it's hard




123

00:04:30,990 --> 00:04:32,170

to find really beautiful evergreens that




124

00:04:32,370 --> 00:04:34,210

stay small enough I mean we chose these




125

00:04:34,410 --> 00:04:35,740

specifically because they only grow




126

00:04:35,939 --> 00:04:38,530

about 3 to 5 feet wide at maturity and




127

00:04:38,730 --> 00:04:40,600

as they you can see if you look down the




128

00:04:40,800 --> 00:04:42,310

lane here we don't have an enormous




129

00:04:42,509 --> 00:04:44,590

amount of space for them to grow so I




130

00:04:44,790 --> 00:04:46,090

thought it would be perfect and they've




131

00:04:46,290 --> 00:04:49,389

done so so well so we planted these I




132

00:04:49,589 --> 00:04:51,370

think two summers ago when it was a




133

00:04:51,569 --> 00:04:53,230

hundred and four degrees outside which I




134

00:04:53,430 --> 00:04:55,270

do not recommend you doing but we only




135

00:04:55,470 --> 00:04:58,600

lost one which is amazing usually when




136

00:04:58,800 --> 00:05:00,040

you're planting that many of anything




137

00:05:00,240 --> 00:05:01,810

you'll have some loss just from either




138

00:05:02,009 --> 00:05:04,240

shock you know from transitioning you




139

00:05:04,439 --> 00:05:06,129

know from pot to ground you might have a




140

00:05:06,329 --> 00:05:08,110

gopher come through and disrupt the root




141

00:05:08,310 --> 00:05:10,389

system your drip system might not be




142

00:05:10,589 --> 00:05:12,218

working in a certain area so whatever




143

00:05:12,418 --> 00:05:14,050

the case may be I feel like that ratio




144

00:05:14,250 --> 00:05:16,329

was excellent and they grow about 10 to




145

00:05:16,529 --> 00:05:18,069

15 feet tall so it's gonna create this




146

00:05:18,269 --> 00:05:20,800

beautiful green wall back here and I




147

00:05:21,000 --> 00:05:22,569

just wanted to continue that on like I




148

00:05:22,769 --> 00:05:24,968

kind of explained earlier but they stay




149

00:05:25,168 --> 00:05:27,129

this nice green color and they're just a




150

00:05:27,329 --> 00:05:29,500

fast grower when we planted these they




151

00:05:29,699 --> 00:05:31,990

only came about right up to right above




152

00:05:32,189 --> 00:05:33,129

this rail right




153

00:05:33,329 --> 00:05:35,050

here the second rail down and you can




154

00:05:35,250 --> 00:05:38,079

see on this one how much it's growth




155

00:05:38,279 --> 00:05:39,869

it's put on so it's only about this tall




156

00:05:40,069 --> 00:05:42,699

it's put on this much growth and they've




157

00:05:42,899 --> 00:05:45,579

at least doubled if not more in width so




158

00:05:45,779 --> 00:05:47,559

I'm just really pleased with how these




159

00:05:47,759 --> 00:05:49,179

have done they actually lasted through




160

00:05:49,379 --> 00:05:50,949

our really bad winter here too right




161

00:05:51,149 --> 00:05:52,809

yeah they did they went through our




162

00:05:53,009 --> 00:05:55,059

really bad winter where we had 52 inches




163

00:05:55,259 --> 00:05:56,709

of snow and negative 17 degree




164

00:05:56,908 --> 00:05:59,649

temperatures and look at them they're




165

00:05:59,848 --> 00:06:01,569

still thriving and doing excellent so




166

00:06:01,769 --> 00:06:03,189

I'm excited to get these in the ground




167

00:06:03,389 --> 00:06:04,869

so that this area is kind of buttoned up




168

00:06:05,069 --> 00:06:07,460

for now




169

00:06:14,259 --> 00:06:17,659

[Music]




170

00:06:23,019 --> 00:06:26,139

[Music]




171

00:06:32,410 --> 00:06:35,539

[Music]




172

00:06:44,668 --> 00:06:50,870

oh there goes the camera yeah




173

00:06:52,000 --> 00:06:54,119

we got it all planted except I'm not




174

00:06:54,319 --> 00:06:55,740

sure how much of the planting of this




175

00:06:55,939 --> 00:06:56,910

cedar you just saw because we




176

00:06:57,110 --> 00:06:58,528

accidentally knocked Aaron's camera over




177

00:06:58,728 --> 00:07:00,689

right in the middle of planting it and




178

00:07:00,889 --> 00:07:02,579

it was a beast to dig the hole big




179

00:07:02,779 --> 00:07:04,860

enough for this plant I'm so glad it's




180

00:07:05,060 --> 00:07:06,569

in the ground we were taking turns




181

00:07:06,769 --> 00:07:08,670

digging the hole make sure there was




182

00:07:08,870 --> 00:07:11,129

enough room for it and we did tossin bio




183

00:07:11,329 --> 00:07:12,838

tone starter fertilizer in the hole as




184

00:07:13,038 --> 00:07:14,999

well as all of the holes for everything




185

00:07:15,199 --> 00:07:17,520

we planted today so we went ahead and




186

00:07:17,720 --> 00:07:19,619

planted five of the north pole arbor




187

00:07:19,819 --> 00:07:21,869

vitae is on this side of the birch and




188

00:07:22,069 --> 00:07:23,069

we took a tape measure to get our




189

00:07:23,269 --> 00:07:25,379

spacing right we measured how far apart




190

00:07:25,579 --> 00:07:27,540

we spaced the other ones it was about 40




191

00:07:27,740 --> 00:07:30,088

inches so that's how we spaced these we




192

00:07:30,288 --> 00:07:32,309

had a couple left over I over bought a




193

00:07:32,509 --> 00:07:34,649

little bit so we decided just to carry




194

00:07:34,848 --> 00:07:37,199

the hedge just a little bit further I'll




195

00:07:37,399 --> 00:07:39,209

go get one more and so we'll have a




196

00:07:39,408 --> 00:07:41,129

little trio right here and I just think




197

00:07:41,329 --> 00:07:42,959

that'll be a nice green wall that will




198

00:07:43,158 --> 00:07:44,819

kind of disappear that's what I want to




199

00:07:45,019 --> 00:07:46,139

have happen I would kind of want this




200

00:07:46,339 --> 00:07:48,028

wall of arms just to disappear in the




201

00:07:48,228 --> 00:07:49,379

background and really set apart




202

00:07:49,579 --> 00:07:51,300

everything that's in front of it so




203

00:07:51,500 --> 00:07:53,420

anyway I hope you guys found this video




204

00:07:53,620 --> 00:07:56,939

interesting or maybe you got some ideas




205

00:07:57,139 --> 00:07:58,439

from it for something that's really good




206

00:07:58,639 --> 00:08:00,449

for a small area in your garden for a




207

00:08:00,649 --> 00:08:03,149

screening plant the Cypress or the arbor




208

00:08:03,348 --> 00:08:04,439

vitae they're both really good for that




209

00:08:04,639 --> 00:08:06,990

really good as a dramatic kind of accent




210

00:08:07,189 --> 00:08:08,338

as well I mean you don't have to plant




211

00:08:08,538 --> 00:08:09,629

them in a row you can plant them in a




212

00:08:09,829 --> 00:08:11,459

little grouping like this for just a




213

00:08:11,658 --> 00:08:14,399

really huge impact planting in the years




214

00:08:14,598 --> 00:08:15,990

to come I think it's really pretty even




215

00:08:16,189 --> 00:08:17,519

now though I'm excited to get some more




216

00:08:17,718 --> 00:08:19,860

color in here and it's really fun just




217

00:08:20,060 --> 00:08:21,689

to plant this whole thing just mixed




218

00:08:21,889 --> 00:08:23,850

with some deciduous trees with different




219

00:08:24,050 --> 00:08:26,189

colors for fall and then a lot of




220

00:08:26,389 --> 00:08:27,600

evergreens as well so that it looks




221

00:08:27,800 --> 00:08:29,309

pretty all year round and I'm sure




222

00:08:29,509 --> 00:08:30,509

Aaron's gonna come out here with




223

00:08:30,709 --> 00:08:33,000

Christmas lights this year it'll be




224

00:08:33,200 --> 00:08:34,258

interesting to see what he does so




225

00:08:34,458 --> 00:08:35,758

anyway thank you guys so much for




226

00:08:35,958 --> 00:08:37,049

227

00:08:37,250 --> 00:08:40,028

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,420

hey guys how's it going I'm just working




2

00:00:01,620 --> 00:00:02,770

on a few things outside this afternoon




3

00:00:02,970 --> 00:00:04,990

and we are dodging rain storms it just




4

00:00:05,190 --> 00:00:07,389

keeps storming on us to spring it's been




5

00:00:07,589 --> 00:00:09,310

the craziest weather that I can remember




6

00:00:09,509 --> 00:00:11,470

like the wettest spring ever which our




7

00:00:11,669 --> 00:00:13,300

plants are really really loving it but I




8

00:00:13,500 --> 00:00:15,580

now understand what it's like when it




9

00:00:15,779 --> 00:00:17,409

keeps on raining and you just can't get




10

00:00:17,609 --> 00:00:19,269

that much done out in the garden because




11

00:00:19,469 --> 00:00:21,460

it gets to be a muddy mess so this




12

00:00:21,660 --> 00:00:23,140

afternoon Aaron and I are gonna move a




13

00:00:23,339 --> 00:00:25,239

couple of benches that Henry studio sent




14

00:00:25,439 --> 00:00:27,879

out and I'm also gonna plant up these




15

00:00:28,079 --> 00:00:29,769

giant these are like the classic Oh




16

00:00:29,969 --> 00:00:31,600

giant palm pots and I think it's what




17

00:00:31,800 --> 00:00:33,788

they're called I have four of them and




18

00:00:33,988 --> 00:00:35,709

those are also from Henry Studios so I




19

00:00:35,909 --> 00:00:38,079

want to get those planted and then I've




20

00:00:38,280 --> 00:00:40,719

got to do some bug baiting so I'll show




21

00:00:40,920 --> 00:00:42,759

you what kind of stuff I'm using like in




22

00:00:42,960 --> 00:00:43,928

my vegetable garden I noticed




23

00:00:44,128 --> 00:00:46,119

something's eating my basil so I'm gonna




24

00:00:46,320 --> 00:00:48,250

use some of that bait and kind of take




25

00:00:48,450 --> 00:00:49,959

care of a few loose ends around here so




26

00:00:50,159 --> 00:00:52,538

check that out isn't that the prettiest




27

00:00:52,738 --> 00:00:55,419

pot and they are huge like so there's my




28

00:00:55,619 --> 00:00:58,059

hand you can see how thick they are and




29

00:00:58,259 --> 00:01:02,018

how big they are I'm not positive what




30

00:01:02,219 --> 00:01:03,279

I'm gonna put in each one of these I




31

00:01:03,479 --> 00:01:04,629

think I'm gonna go with something a




32

00:01:04,829 --> 00:01:07,090

little bit more shade-loving in these




33

00:01:07,290 --> 00:01:09,789

pots because we do have the giant elm




34

00:01:09,989 --> 00:01:12,340

tree that kind of provides filtered




35

00:01:12,540 --> 00:01:15,039

sunlight through this area and then I've




36

00:01:15,239 --> 00:01:17,738

got two more on the very far end down




37

00:01:17,938 --> 00:01:19,719

there that are full Sun and I've got




38

00:01:19,920 --> 00:01:21,668

perfect stuff for those but these are




39

00:01:21,868 --> 00:01:22,269

heavy




40

00:01:22,469 --> 00:01:24,819

I think they weigh like 300 and some




41

00:01:25,019 --> 00:01:26,079

pounds apiece




42

00:01:26,280 --> 00:01:28,450

they were a total beast to get unloaded




43

00:01:28,650 --> 00:01:30,399

out of the truck and actually when these




44

00:01:30,599 --> 00:01:32,109

containers arrived it was at the same




45

00:01:32,310 --> 00:01:33,640

time that our brick pathway was being




46

00:01:33,840 --> 00:01:35,528

put in and the guys that were here they




47

00:01:35,728 --> 00:01:37,329

had some equipment that could handle




48

00:01:37,530 --> 00:01:39,730

like heavy large objects and bless their




49

00:01:39,930 --> 00:01:41,409

hearts they came over they saw




50

00:01:41,609 --> 00:01:43,058

struggling and kind of like sizing these




51

00:01:43,259 --> 00:01:45,308

pots up thinking how are we gonna lift




52

00:01:45,509 --> 00:01:46,988

these and get them onto the ground so




53

00:01:47,188 --> 00:01:49,000

they came over and saved us and helped




54

00:01:49,200 --> 00:01:51,159

us unload all of the pieces so I think




55

00:01:51,359 --> 00:01:52,840

that Erin and I are gonna move the




56

00:01:53,040 --> 00:01:54,819

benches quick first and they're really




57

00:01:55,019 --> 00:01:56,049

pretty they're gonna go in Versailles




58

00:01:56,250 --> 00:01:58,840

while Benjamin is napping we try to get




59

00:01:59,040 --> 00:02:01,390

things done includes the both of us when




60

00:02:01,590 --> 00:02:03,819

he is napping quickly so I'm here in the




61

00:02:04,019 --> 00:02:05,709

bar and here are the legs of the benches




62

00:02:05,909 --> 00:02:07,448

that's called this straight lion bench




63

00:02:07,649 --> 00:02:09,189

we thought they would look really pretty




64

00:02:09,389 --> 00:02:11,259

and kind of stately up in the Versailles




65

00:02:11,459 --> 00:02:13,149

garden you brought the truck out




66

00:02:13,348 --> 00:02:15,069

that's perfect I think that'll work the




67

00:02:15,269 --> 00:02:16,360

best do you know where the tops of the




68

00:02:16,560 --> 00:02:18,969

benches are here okay it's getting a




69

00:02:19,169 --> 00:02:20,530

little worried there for second




70

00:02:20,729 --> 00:02:25,569

aha and there's the tops covered in




71

00:02:25,769 --> 00:02:27,549

handle is covered in burlap of course I




72

00:02:27,748 --> 00:02:30,099

can handle these I can do stuff like




73

00:02:30,299 --> 00:02:33,200

this in my sleep




74

00:02:39,689 --> 00:02:43,300

[Music]




75

00:02:55,229 --> 00:02:57,640

[Music]




76

00:02:57,840 --> 00:03:04,600

those bench pieces are stout oh look at




77

00:03:04,800 --> 00:03:08,219

that pretty pot oh look at the colors




78

00:03:08,419 --> 00:03:10,539

okay so we're up in Versailles right now




79

00:03:10,739 --> 00:03:12,430

let me show you what we're thinking and




80

00:03:12,629 --> 00:03:14,259

this is actually based off of what the




81

00:03:14,459 --> 00:03:16,450

previous owners had done in here they




82

00:03:16,650 --> 00:03:18,130

had some benches and we kind of like the




83

00:03:18,330 --> 00:03:18,789

way it looked




84

00:03:18,989 --> 00:03:21,640

it's just taken us three years to get to




85

00:03:21,840 --> 00:03:23,590

it so as you're looking at the house




86

00:03:23,789 --> 00:03:25,990

they had placed benches about right here




87

00:03:26,189 --> 00:03:28,240

and then one on this side which was nice




88

00:03:28,439 --> 00:03:30,099

they kind of took up some space provided




89

00:03:30,299 --> 00:03:32,020

some seating and if I remember right




90

00:03:32,219 --> 00:03:33,580

they had urns up here as well but I just




91

00:03:33,780 --> 00:03:35,530

I can't quite remember I'll have to see




92

00:03:35,729 --> 00:03:37,330

if we have any footage but I thought




93

00:03:37,530 --> 00:03:39,640

they had a couple out here like off to




94

00:03:39,840 --> 00:03:42,789

the far sides I'm not sure you're




95

00:03:42,989 --> 00:03:46,360

getting started well do you think like




96

00:03:46,560 --> 00:03:49,840

right up in here I think maybe if we




97

00:03:50,039 --> 00:03:52,360

place the legs hopefully we get it




98

00:03:52,560 --> 00:03:53,800

pretty close we don't need to move




99

00:03:54,000 --> 00:03:56,120

anything




100

00:03:58,129 --> 00:04:01,729

are you Vanna White




101

00:04:15,379 --> 00:04:19,129

I love it these pavers back here now




102

00:04:19,329 --> 00:04:21,720

you've always loved those pavers yeah we




103

00:04:21,920 --> 00:04:23,400

need to do brick yeah well we'll get




104

00:04:23,600 --> 00:04:26,520

there I know how to do it now yeah I




105

00:04:26,720 --> 00:04:28,439

love this you guys look at the bench




106

00:04:28,639 --> 00:04:30,300

with the boxwoods behind it with all the




107

00:04:30,500 --> 00:04:32,310

hostas and the Columbine oh it's so




108

00:04:32,509 --> 00:04:32,819

pretty




109

00:04:33,019 --> 00:04:34,439

I do need to bring some scissors out




110

00:04:34,639 --> 00:04:35,639

here but just in case you're wondering




111

00:04:35,839 --> 00:04:38,960

that I would show you this is the




112

00:04:39,160 --> 00:04:41,370

straight line bench in the color




113

00:04:41,569 --> 00:04:45,270

traviata gray from Henry bench number




114

00:04:45,470 --> 00:04:47,650

two




115

00:04:58,649 --> 00:05:00,759

standing way back so you guys can see




116

00:05:00,959 --> 00:05:01,810

but there they are




117

00:05:02,009 --> 00:05:04,840

so we roughly stepped off how far the




118

00:05:05,040 --> 00:05:06,278

bench was from the corner of that




119

00:05:06,478 --> 00:05:08,889

container to the bench same on this side




120

00:05:09,089 --> 00:05:10,420

it looks like a little bit of an




121

00:05:10,620 --> 00:05:11,949

illusion because see if the pavers




122

00:05:12,149 --> 00:05:14,020

behind kind of go up I don't know what




123

00:05:14,220 --> 00:05:15,160

the deal is we're not going to have




124

00:05:15,360 --> 00:05:16,569

these pavers here hopefully for very




125

00:05:16,769 --> 00:05:19,689

much longer and the land kind of starts




126

00:05:19,889 --> 00:05:21,069

to slope down a little bit right here




127

00:05:21,269 --> 00:05:23,079

it's just kind of an odd situation but I




128

00:05:23,279 --> 00:05:26,340

think the benches look really good




129

00:05:26,540 --> 00:05:29,730

Russell what do you think buddy




130

00:05:29,930 --> 00:05:36,670

what do you think hey what a good boy




131

00:05:36,870 --> 00:05:39,040

also while we're up here I just want to




132

00:05:39,240 --> 00:05:40,569

show you how this gardens coming along




133

00:05:40,769 --> 00:05:42,910

so that's a supertunia limoncello and




134

00:05:43,110 --> 00:05:45,550

the dark knight alyssum I haven't had to




135

00:05:45,750 --> 00:05:47,110

water at one time because of all the




136

00:05:47,310 --> 00:05:51,218

rain and it's looking amazing okay one




137

00:05:51,418 --> 00:05:52,990

project checked off the list so let's go




138

00:05:53,189 --> 00:05:55,060

back and plant up the containers this




139

00:05:55,259 --> 00:05:56,740

set of containers is ready to roll I




140

00:05:56,939 --> 00:05:59,350

just need to go grab some plants I did




141

00:05:59,550 --> 00:06:01,270

run a drip line even though I probably




142

00:06:01,470 --> 00:06:02,710

won't hook it up this afternoon it




143

00:06:02,910 --> 00:06:04,210

depends on how much time I end up having




144

00:06:04,410 --> 00:06:06,218

but at least I have the capability of




145

00:06:06,418 --> 00:06:09,100

getting it all done before the soil went




146

00:06:09,300 --> 00:06:13,728

in so anyway let's go grab plants




147

00:06:18,310 --> 00:06:20,160

okay so I think I figured out the




148

00:06:20,360 --> 00:06:21,569

mixture of plants I want in these




149

00:06:21,769 --> 00:06:23,970

containers again these get filtered Sun




150

00:06:24,170 --> 00:06:27,240

so I can kind of do shade and Sun levers




151

00:06:27,439 --> 00:06:29,280

a little bit I'm probably not gonna do




152

00:06:29,480 --> 00:06:30,750

like supertunias because they do the




153

00:06:30,949 --> 00:06:33,210

best with full Sun all day but the




154

00:06:33,410 --> 00:06:34,650

things I chose I think will be really




155

00:06:34,850 --> 00:06:36,210

pretty together so these are not planted




156

00:06:36,410 --> 00:06:37,500

yet I just kind of stuck them in there




157

00:06:37,699 --> 00:06:39,300

I'm going to use a lemony lace




158

00:06:39,500 --> 00:06:41,310

elderberry as my centerpiece they're




159

00:06:41,509 --> 00:06:42,960

super Hardy plants so they'll probably




160

00:06:43,160 --> 00:06:44,910

winter over in these containers just




161

00:06:45,110 --> 00:06:47,699

perfectly then there are some anemones




162

00:06:47,899 --> 00:06:50,040

look at this look at how beautiful that




163

00:06:50,240 --> 00:06:54,360

is let me get the tag these are called




164

00:06:54,560 --> 00:06:56,730

fallin love sweetly can take fold apart




165

00:06:56,930 --> 00:06:59,189

son I think these are pretty tough as




166

00:06:59,389 --> 00:06:59,780

well




167

00:06:59,980 --> 00:07:02,490

zone four through eight and they bloom




168

00:07:02,689 --> 00:07:04,379

late summer through fall so I think that




169

00:07:04,579 --> 00:07:05,579

this is going to be a winner for this




170

00:07:05,779 --> 00:07:08,100

for a container anyway lots of color




171

00:07:08,300 --> 00:07:10,439

like look at all of these buds they're




172

00:07:10,639 --> 00:07:11,759

all so beautiful in cut flower




173

00:07:11,959 --> 00:07:14,370

arrangements well bonus there and then




174

00:07:14,569 --> 00:07:16,050

we've got wicked which coleus which will




175

00:07:16,250 --> 00:07:17,939

be new next year I'm able to trial it




176

00:07:18,139 --> 00:07:19,680

this year see how it does in the garden




177

00:07:19,879 --> 00:07:21,660

and it will get quite large so that'll




178

00:07:21,860 --> 00:07:23,009

be another one that's kind of like a




179

00:07:23,209 --> 00:07:24,689

filler plant kind of like the anemone




180

00:07:24,889 --> 00:07:26,550

and then I've got Diamond frost




181

00:07:26,750 --> 00:07:28,528

euphorbia which does well in a lightly




182

00:07:28,728 --> 00:07:31,230

shaded area and then dichondra silver




183

00:07:31,430 --> 00:07:32,910

fault so kind of got like all the colors




184

00:07:33,110 --> 00:07:35,939

I've got red and blue and yellow and




185

00:07:36,139 --> 00:07:37,980

green which those are the four colors I




186

00:07:38,180 --> 00:07:40,079

always make sure to have in every flower




187

00:07:40,279 --> 00:07:42,389

bed pretty much so I'm gonna grab my




188

00:07:42,589 --> 00:07:44,129

flow release plant food really quick and




189

00:07:44,329 --> 00:07:45,420

then I'm just gonna get those planted up




190

00:07:45,620 --> 00:07:47,579

I came out here last night late like




191

00:07:47,779 --> 00:07:49,889

after Benjamin was asleep and did a




192

00:07:50,089 --> 00:07:51,028

bunch of work in the garage just




193

00:07:51,228 --> 00:07:53,189

organized and cleaned it needed it's all




194

00:07:53,389 --> 00:07:57,399

bad things get really bad in the spring




195

00:08:02,610 --> 00:08:12,230

[Music]




196

00:08:15,189 --> 00:08:18,250

[Music]




197

00:08:20,670 --> 00:08:23,838

[Music]




198

00:08:33,289 --> 00:08:36,209

oh my goodness it turned out so pretty




199

00:08:36,409 --> 00:08:38,490

and it's kind of a random assortment of




200

00:08:38,690 --> 00:08:41,250

plants really but I really wanted to try




201

00:08:41,450 --> 00:08:42,899

something new in terms of a centerpiece




202

00:08:43,100 --> 00:08:46,859

something just unusual and then the




203

00:08:47,059 --> 00:08:49,199

anemones add something so beautiful and




204

00:08:49,399 --> 00:08:50,459

the diamond frost




205

00:08:50,659 --> 00:08:52,379

there's the coleus right there which is




206

00:08:52,580 --> 00:08:55,769

coleus we'll fill in this section really




207

00:08:55,970 --> 00:08:58,169

really quickly and then the dichondra




208

00:08:58,370 --> 00:09:00,509

they just like bulk up and it'll be a




209

00:09:00,710 --> 00:09:02,639

really dramatic Spiller out of the sides




210

00:09:02,840 --> 00:09:05,099

but it looks the same from all the way




211

00:09:05,299 --> 00:09:08,699

around alright so now we just have the




212

00:09:08,899 --> 00:09:10,769

two on the far end so here's what I'm




213

00:09:10,970 --> 00:09:13,169

going with in these containers I'm gonna




214

00:09:13,370 --> 00:09:14,549

do the purple fountain grass in the




215

00:09:14,750 --> 00:09:15,990

center because I think that it'll do




216

00:09:16,190 --> 00:09:17,609

really well it'll perform really




217

00:09:17,809 --> 00:09:19,889

beautifully because these containers get




218

00:09:20,090 --> 00:09:22,949

all day Sun and then to surround it I'm




219

00:09:23,149 --> 00:09:24,959

actually using two brand new plants for




220

00:09:25,159 --> 00:09:27,419

next year that I'm also trying and I




221

00:09:27,620 --> 00:09:30,329

think they're so gorgeous this is a new




222

00:09:30,529 --> 00:09:32,219

supertunia look at that it's called




223

00:09:32,419 --> 00:09:35,129

supertunia Sharon and it's beautiful




224

00:09:35,330 --> 00:09:37,409

double with the pink and white striping




225

00:09:37,610 --> 00:09:39,929

I just think it's just such a delicate




226

00:09:40,129 --> 00:09:42,419

looking supertunia and then these are




227

00:09:42,620 --> 00:09:46,139

superb ena Sparkle amethyst I think it's




228

00:09:46,340 --> 00:09:48,029

what they're called these are huge




229

00:09:48,230 --> 00:09:51,479

blooms look at those I am really excited




230

00:09:51,679 --> 00:09:53,490

to see how these do and I think that




231

00:09:53,690 --> 00:09:55,199

these are just beautiful colors together




232

00:09:55,399 --> 00:09:57,509

too so I decided just to keep it to the




233

00:09:57,710 --> 00:09:59,579

two flowers because I just really want




234

00:09:59,779 --> 00:10:01,620

to keep them a little bit separate so I




235

00:10:01,820 --> 00:10:04,289

can see how they do together in these




236

00:10:04,490 --> 00:10:05,939

containers so now I'm just going to get




237

00:10:06,139 --> 00:10:08,529

implanted




238

00:10:09,970 --> 00:10:25,828

[Music]




239

00:10:26,028 --> 00:10:28,289

these are all done what do you guys




240

00:10:28,490 --> 00:10:29,818

think of this blend don't you think it's




241

00:10:30,019 --> 00:10:33,868

just beautiful so excited and I have to




242

00:10:34,068 --> 00:10:35,488

say while I'm over here that these stand




243

00:10:35,688 --> 00:10:37,078

by me clematis that we planted last




244

00:10:37,278 --> 00:10:40,889

spring are absolutely wonderful




245

00:10:41,089 --> 00:10:43,139

they are wonderful perennials this is




246

00:10:43,339 --> 00:10:46,019

one year of growth you guys that's it




247

00:10:46,220 --> 00:10:47,729

I was kind of thinking it was going to




248

00:10:47,929 --> 00:10:49,258

take him a couple years to fill in this




249

00:10:49,458 --> 00:10:52,769

area and they have just gone for it like




250

00:10:52,970 --> 00:10:54,988

this right here is all one plant like




251

00:10:55,188 --> 00:10:57,178

this bunch right here and then these are




252

00:10:57,379 --> 00:10:59,068

the orange smoothie day lilies which are




253

00:10:59,269 --> 00:11:00,839

looking really great so these will




254

00:11:01,039 --> 00:11:03,029

actually pick up and start blooming when




255

00:11:03,230 --> 00:11:05,308

the clematis are kind of done which is




256

00:11:05,509 --> 00:11:07,558

why I chose to do what I did because I




257

00:11:07,759 --> 00:11:09,508

wanted to have staggered bloom time and




258

00:11:09,708 --> 00:11:11,909

then back in here you can see the ginger




259

00:11:12,110 --> 00:11:14,849

wine nine bark is doing excellent it has




260

00:11:15,049 --> 00:11:16,589

a little bit to do a little growing to




261

00:11:16,789 --> 00:11:18,118

do to catch up and kind of fill in this




262

00:11:18,318 --> 00:11:20,698

area back here but you can see that it's




263

00:11:20,899 --> 00:11:23,519

about ready to bloom look at all of




264

00:11:23,720 --> 00:11:27,359

those buds it's just covered and the




265

00:11:27,559 --> 00:11:29,849

color is wonderful and then if we go




266

00:11:30,049 --> 00:11:32,608

around the fence here you can see the




267

00:11:32,808 --> 00:11:34,279

orange smoothie stop right here which




268

00:11:34,480 --> 00:11:37,349

that one's a little sad I might dig that




269

00:11:37,549 --> 00:11:39,448

one up and move it but I actually know




270

00:11:39,649 --> 00:11:40,919

I'm gonna dig this one up and move it




271

00:11:41,120 --> 00:11:43,019

back because this is the only pot that I




272

00:11:43,220 --> 00:11:44,969

couldn't place properly because I do




273

00:11:45,169 --> 00:11:46,858

need to move these two plants before I




274

00:11:47,058 --> 00:11:48,659

do it I did run drip tubing though




275

00:11:48,860 --> 00:11:50,219

through the pot so I could hook them up




276

00:11:50,419 --> 00:11:52,258

when I was all done with that but I've




277

00:11:52,458 --> 00:11:55,979

got the at last roses back here I've got




278

00:11:56,179 --> 00:11:57,799

a little broken branch right there




279

00:11:58,000 --> 00:12:02,399

look at look at the color and underneath




280

00:12:02,600 --> 00:12:04,549

them I've got a bunch of two Crean




281

00:12:04,750 --> 00:12:06,839

blooming look at how beautiful that is




282

00:12:07,039 --> 00:12:10,469

and you can see what it looks like right




283

00:12:10,669 --> 00:12:14,508

up next to one of the at last roses and




284

00:12:14,708 --> 00:12:16,858

these are doing wonderful to you guys




285

00:12:17,058 --> 00:12:18,628

these were a last spring plant as well




286

00:12:18,828 --> 00:12:20,308

so I've got one in here that I cut I




287

00:12:20,509 --> 00:12:21,899

need to clean some of that to cream out




288

00:12:22,100 --> 00:12:24,448

from around it kind of choking it then




289

00:12:24,649 --> 00:12:26,938

there's this one and for more I planted




290

00:12:27,139 --> 00:12:28,948

them in kind of a hedge back here and




291

00:12:29,149 --> 00:12:32,938

they are super full of buds and I have




292

00:12:33,139 --> 00:12:35,128

to say one of the only roses that in my




293

00:12:35,328 --> 00:12:36,628

garden that doesn't have any a fits on




294

00:12:36,828 --> 00:12:39,209

it so that's saying something right




295

00:12:39,409 --> 00:12:41,339

so I need to water in these containers




296

00:12:41,539 --> 00:12:43,979

and wash my hands and then there's just




297

00:12:44,179 --> 00:12:45,419

one other thing I want to get done I




298

00:12:45,620 --> 00:12:47,128

want to bait in my garden quick and then




299

00:12:47,328 --> 00:12:49,169

I need to scatter some cat repellent in




300

00:12:49,370 --> 00:12:52,258

my window boxes because rustle and all




301

00:12:52,458 --> 00:12:53,939

the other cats around this neighborhood




302

00:12:54,139 --> 00:12:55,500

like to get into window boxes and look




303

00:12:55,700 --> 00:12:57,448

inside of our house so anyway that's




304

00:12:57,649 --> 00:12:59,039

what I'm doing next so I'm in the




305

00:12:59,240 --> 00:13:00,659

vegetable garden now and this is some




306

00:13:00,860 --> 00:13:00,990

basil




307

00:13:01,190 --> 00:13:03,599

I started inside a little while ago and




308

00:13:03,799 --> 00:13:05,609

it's not looking super hot because it's




309

00:13:05,809 --> 00:13:08,099

been so wet for the last several days




310

00:13:08,299 --> 00:13:10,459

because of all the rain but look at this




311

00:13:10,659 --> 00:13:14,128

they're clearly being eaten by something




312

00:13:14,328 --> 00:13:16,109

and so I need to bait around and which I




313

00:13:16,309 --> 00:13:17,729

typically don't have any problem with




314

00:13:17,929 --> 00:13:21,448

basil so kind of weird I've got both of




315

00:13:21,649 --> 00:13:22,679

my baits right here this is what I'm




316

00:13:22,879 --> 00:13:25,349

using in the garden this is the bug and




317

00:13:25,549 --> 00:13:26,698

slug killer I've showed this to you




318

00:13:26,899 --> 00:13:30,029

before it is a iron phosphate spinosa it




319

00:13:30,230 --> 00:13:32,758

is the active in it and is for organic




320

00:13:32,958 --> 00:13:34,019

gardening which I like and I like the




321

00:13:34,220 --> 00:13:35,758

fact that it's a beta not a spray so I'm




322

00:13:35,958 --> 00:13:37,469

not killing any like honeybees that are




323

00:13:37,669 --> 00:13:39,599

flying around it'll just get whatever's




324

00:13:39,799 --> 00:13:41,639

crawling around around the base of these




325

00:13:41,839 --> 00:13:44,578

plants and it takes care of all the big




326

00:13:44,778 --> 00:13:46,318

offenders like earwigs are a huge one




327

00:13:46,519 --> 00:13:48,719

here we don't have a lot of snails but




328

00:13:48,919 --> 00:13:51,448

we do get slugs occasionally so anyway I




329

00:13:51,649 --> 00:13:53,099

like this too because let me show you




330

00:13:53,299 --> 00:13:54,508

you can see in there it's kind of a




331

00:13:54,708 --> 00:13:57,539

grain instead of a powder and typically




332

00:13:57,740 --> 00:13:59,849

all start with diatomaceous earth first




333

00:14:00,049 --> 00:14:02,669

because it's really it's kind of a mild




334

00:14:02,870 --> 00:14:05,429

insecticide but you have to continually




335

00:14:05,629 --> 00:14:07,349

reapply it once it gets wet and it's




336

00:14:07,549 --> 00:14:09,328

been so wet from all the rain that this




337

00:14:09,528 --> 00:14:11,789

grain actually lasts through that quite




338

00:14:11,990 --> 00:14:13,620

well so I feel like it's the best way to




339

00:14:13,820 --> 00:14:16,258

go right now and I really I haven't had




340

00:14:16,458 --> 00:14:18,059

to treat very many other things in fact




341

00:14:18,259 --> 00:14:20,429

the only thing I have put any bait




342

00:14:20,629 --> 00:14:22,198

around in the garden is the cabbage let




343

00:14:22,399 --> 00:14:23,639

me show you what that looks like cabbage




344

00:14:23,839 --> 00:14:26,459

is looking pretty good and with just two




345

00:14:26,659 --> 00:14:28,828

applications of bait throughout the




346

00:14:29,028 --> 00:14:31,229

spring I did notice and I think this is




347

00:14:31,429 --> 00:14:33,359

when I started putting the bait on let's




348

00:14:33,559 --> 00:14:35,849

see I thought I'd noticed yeah see that




349

00:14:36,049 --> 00:14:38,089

right there a little bit of slug damage




350

00:14:38,289 --> 00:14:40,979

that's when I started baiting the plants




351

00:14:41,179 --> 00:14:43,318

and they look amazing now isn't that the




352

00:14:43,519 --> 00:14:44,779

prettiest thing ever




353

00:14:44,980 --> 00:14:48,209

so pretty so this is super easy to use I




354

00:14:48,409 --> 00:14:50,039

just open up the cap and shake it around




355

00:14:50,240 --> 00:14:50,729

the base of the




356

00:14:50,929 --> 00:14:53,318

plants




357

00:15:02,750 --> 00:15:05,639

all right that should do it and this is




358

00:15:05,839 --> 00:15:08,368

the next one I'm using this is called go




359

00:15:08,568 --> 00:15:12,508

away rabbit dog and cat repellent it's




360

00:15:12,708 --> 00:15:14,639

one I've actually not tried so I'm




361

00:15:14,839 --> 00:15:16,258

looking forward to trying this the




362

00:15:16,458 --> 00:15:18,688

active ingredients are cinnamon and




363

00:15:18,889 --> 00:15:21,448

thyme oil so it probably smells pretty




364

00:15:21,649 --> 00:15:24,808

good yeah not bad




365

00:15:25,009 --> 00:15:28,078

oh my sneeze it's not stinky it's not




366

00:15:28,278 --> 00:15:30,808

great but it's not stinky and you know I




367

00:15:31,009 --> 00:15:32,308

don't really want to put cat repellent




368

00:15:32,509 --> 00:15:34,019

around because I like Russell and I




369

00:15:34,220 --> 00:15:36,269

don't really need to repel him for much




370

00:15:36,470 --> 00:15:38,128

but he's trying to get in my window




371

00:15:38,328 --> 00:15:41,339

boxes a lot too when he wants in and I




372

00:15:41,539 --> 00:15:43,078

don't really want him to wreck my plants




373

00:15:43,278 --> 00:15:46,049

so I am gonna sprinkle a little bit so




374

00:15:46,250 --> 00:15:48,719

here goes this is the one he tries to




375

00:15:48,919 --> 00:15:50,039

get it in the most and then use




376

00:15:50,240 --> 00:15:52,258

scratches and claws at the screen it




377

00:15:52,458 --> 00:16:01,459

drives me nuts your pipe and smoke it




378

00:16:01,659 --> 00:16:06,209

here he is now hey Russell what you




379

00:16:06,409 --> 00:16:09,448

doing buddy yeah did you sense that I




380

00:16:09,649 --> 00:16:12,919

was talking about you did you sense it




381

00:16:13,120 --> 00:16:15,508

we need to get you a cat door that would




382

00:16:15,708 --> 00:16:16,948

probably eliminate all of my problems




383

00:16:17,149 --> 00:16:19,169

the only issue with that is that it




384

00:16:19,370 --> 00:16:20,399

would welcome all the other neighbor




385

00:16:20,600 --> 00:16:22,169

cats into our house and I don't really




386

00:16:22,370 --> 00:16:24,479

want to do either all right I got all of




387

00:16:24,679 --> 00:16:26,308

the window boxes treated I will let you




388

00:16:26,509 --> 00:16:27,688

guys know how this works




389

00:16:27,889 --> 00:16:29,519

it'd be great if it works really really




390

00:16:29,720 --> 00:16:31,229

well I'm assuming I'm gonna have to




391

00:16:31,429 --> 00:16:32,849

reapply it every once in a while hold on




392

00:16:33,049 --> 00:16:34,948

okay so it doesn't say how often I'm




393

00:16:35,149 --> 00:16:37,979

supposed to apply it but I'm guessing I




394

00:16:38,179 --> 00:16:39,899

just keep reapplying it pretty heavy for




395

00:16:40,100 --> 00:16:41,519

the first a little bit to at least




396

00:16:41,720 --> 00:16:43,409

create a stronger version and then it'll




397

00:16:43,610 --> 00:16:46,318

probably last longer in between times so




398

00:16:46,519 --> 00:16:49,198

anyway yeah that is it for today's video




399

00:16:49,399 --> 00:16:50,698

I think that's all I have time for I do




400

00:16:50,899 --> 00:16:52,169

have to go water some things in the




401

00:16:52,370 --> 00:16:54,269

greenhouse but then I want to go in and




402

00:16:54,470 --> 00:16:56,339

hang out with Benjamin so anyway hope




403

00:16:56,539 --> 00:16:57,508

you guys enjoyed this video we'll see




404

00:16:57,708 --> 00:17:02,708

you in the next one bye view all

1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,420

hey guys how's it going I'm just working




2

00:00:01,620 --> 00:00:02,770

on a few things outside this afternoon




3

00:00:02,970 --> 00:00:04,990

and we are dodging rain storms it just




4

00:00:05,190 --> 00:00:07,389

keeps storming on us to spring it's been




5

00:00:07,589 --> 00:00:09,310

the craziest weather that I can remember




6

00:00:09,509 --> 00:00:11,470

like the wettest spring ever which our




7

00:00:11,669 --> 00:00:13,300

plants are really really loving it but I




8

00:00:13,500 --> 00:00:15,580

now understand what it's like when it




9

00:00:15,779 --> 00:00:17,409

keeps on raining and you just can't get




10

00:00:17,609 --> 00:00:19,269

that much done out in the garden because




11

00:00:19,469 --> 00:00:21,460

it gets to be a muddy mess so this




12

00:00:21,660 --> 00:00:23,140

afternoon Aaron and I are gonna move a




13

00:00:23,339 --> 00:00:25,239

couple of benches that Henry studio sent




14

00:00:25,439 --> 00:00:27,879

out and I'm also gonna plant up these




15

00:00:28,079 --> 00:00:29,769

giant these are like the classic Oh




16

00:00:29,969 --> 00:00:31,600

giant palm pots and I think it's what




17

00:00:31,800 --> 00:00:33,788

they're called I have four of them and




18

00:00:33,988 --> 00:00:35,709

those are also from Henry Studios so I




19

00:00:35,909 --> 00:00:38,079

want to get those planted and then I've




20

00:00:38,280 --> 00:00:40,719

got to do some bug baiting so I'll show




21

00:00:40,920 --> 00:00:42,759

you what kind of stuff I'm using like in




22

00:00:42,960 --> 00:00:43,928

my vegetable garden I noticed




23

00:00:44,128 --> 00:00:46,119

something's eating my basil so I'm gonna




24

00:00:46,320 --> 00:00:48,250

use some of that bait and kind of take




25

00:00:48,450 --> 00:00:49,959

care of a few loose ends around here so




26

00:00:50,159 --> 00:00:52,538

check that out isn't that the prettiest




27

00:00:52,738 --> 00:00:55,419

pot and they are huge like so there's my




28

00:00:55,619 --> 00:00:58,059

hand you can see how thick they are and




29

00:00:58,259 --> 00:01:02,018

how big they are I'm not positive what




30

00:01:02,219 --> 00:01:03,279

I'm gonna put in each one of these I




31

00:01:03,479 --> 00:01:04,629

think I'm gonna go with something a




32

00:01:04,829 --> 00:01:07,090

little bit more shade-loving in these




33

00:01:07,290 --> 00:01:09,789

pots because we do have the giant elm




34

00:01:09,989 --> 00:01:12,340

tree that kind of provides filtered




35

00:01:12,540 --> 00:01:15,039

sunlight through this area and then I've




36

00:01:15,239 --> 00:01:17,738

got two more on the very far end down




37

00:01:17,938 --> 00:01:19,719

there that are full Sun and I've got




38

00:01:19,920 --> 00:01:21,668

perfect stuff for those but these are




39

00:01:21,868 --> 00:01:22,269

heavy




40

00:01:22,469 --> 00:01:24,819

I think they weigh like 300 and some




41

00:01:25,019 --> 00:01:26,079

pounds apiece




42

00:01:26,280 --> 00:01:28,450

they were a total beast to get unloaded




43

00:01:28,650 --> 00:01:30,399

out of the truck and actually when these




44

00:01:30,599 --> 00:01:32,109

containers arrived it was at the same




45

00:01:32,310 --> 00:01:33,640

time that our brick pathway was being




46

00:01:33,840 --> 00:01:35,528

put in and the guys that were here they




47

00:01:35,728 --> 00:01:37,329

had some equipment that could handle




48

00:01:37,530 --> 00:01:39,730

like heavy large objects and bless their




49

00:01:39,930 --> 00:01:41,409

hearts they came over they saw




50

00:01:41,609 --> 00:01:43,058

struggling and kind of like sizing these




51

00:01:43,259 --> 00:01:45,308

pots up thinking how are we gonna lift




52

00:01:45,509 --> 00:01:46,988

these and get them onto the ground so




53

00:01:47,188 --> 00:01:49,000

they came over and saved us and helped




54

00:01:49,200 --> 00:01:51,159

us unload all of the pieces so I think




55

00:01:51,359 --> 00:01:52,840

that Erin and I are gonna move the




56

00:01:53,040 --> 00:01:54,819

benches quick first and they're really




57

00:01:55,019 --> 00:01:56,049

pretty they're gonna go in Versailles




58

00:01:56,250 --> 00:01:58,840

while Benjamin is napping we try to get




59

00:01:59,040 --> 00:02:01,390

things done includes the both of us when




60

00:02:01,590 --> 00:02:03,819

he is napping quickly so I'm here in the




61

00:02:04,019 --> 00:02:05,709

bar and here are the legs of the benches




62

00:02:05,909 --> 00:02:07,448

that's called this straight lion bench




63

00:02:07,649 --> 00:02:09,189

we thought they would look really pretty




64

00:02:09,389 --> 00:02:11,259

and kind of stately up in the Versailles




65

00:02:11,459 --> 00:02:13,149

garden you brought the truck out




66

00:02:13,348 --> 00:02:15,069

that's perfect I think that'll work the




67

00:02:15,269 --> 00:02:16,360

best do you know where the tops of the




68

00:02:16,560 --> 00:02:18,969

benches are here okay it's getting a




69

00:02:19,169 --> 00:02:20,530

little worried there for second




70

00:02:20,729 --> 00:02:25,569

aha and there's the tops covered in




71

00:02:25,769 --> 00:02:27,549

handle is covered in burlap of course I




72

00:02:27,748 --> 00:02:30,099

can handle these I can do stuff like




73

00:02:30,299 --> 00:02:33,200

this in my sleep




74

00:02:39,689 --> 00:02:43,300

[Music]




75

00:02:55,229 --> 00:02:57,640

[Music]




76

00:02:57,840 --> 00:03:04,600

those bench pieces are stout oh look at




77

00:03:04,800 --> 00:03:08,219

that pretty pot oh look at the colors




78

00:03:08,419 --> 00:03:10,539

okay so we're up in Versailles right now




79

00:03:10,739 --> 00:03:12,430

let me show you what we're thinking and




80

00:03:12,629 --> 00:03:14,259

this is actually based off of what the




81

00:03:14,459 --> 00:03:16,450

previous owners had done in here they




82

00:03:16,650 --> 00:03:18,130

had some benches and we kind of like the




83

00:03:18,330 --> 00:03:18,789

way it looked




84

00:03:18,989 --> 00:03:21,640

it's just taken us three years to get to




85

00:03:21,840 --> 00:03:23,590

it so as you're looking at the house




86

00:03:23,789 --> 00:03:25,990

they had placed benches about right here




87

00:03:26,189 --> 00:03:28,240

and then one on this side which was nice




88

00:03:28,439 --> 00:03:30,099

they kind of took up some space provided




89

00:03:30,299 --> 00:03:32,020

some seating and if I remember right




90

00:03:32,219 --> 00:03:33,580

they had urns up here as well but I just




91

00:03:33,780 --> 00:03:35,530

I can't quite remember I'll have to see




92

00:03:35,729 --> 00:03:37,330

if we have any footage but I thought




93

00:03:37,530 --> 00:03:39,640

they had a couple out here like off to




94

00:03:39,840 --> 00:03:42,789

the far sides I'm not sure you're




95

00:03:42,989 --> 00:03:46,360

getting started well do you think like




96

00:03:46,560 --> 00:03:49,840

right up in here I think maybe if we




97

00:03:50,039 --> 00:03:52,360

place the legs hopefully we get it




98

00:03:52,560 --> 00:03:53,800

pretty close we don't need to move




99

00:03:54,000 --> 00:03:56,120

anything




100

00:03:58,129 --> 00:04:01,729

are you Vanna White




101

00:04:15,379 --> 00:04:19,129

I love it these pavers back here now




102

00:04:19,329 --> 00:04:21,720

you've always loved those pavers yeah we




103

00:04:21,920 --> 00:04:23,400

need to do brick yeah well we'll get




104

00:04:23,600 --> 00:04:26,520

there I know how to do it now yeah I




105

00:04:26,720 --> 00:04:28,439

love this you guys look at the bench




106

00:04:28,639 --> 00:04:30,300

with the boxwoods behind it with all the




107

00:04:30,500 --> 00:04:32,310

hostas and the Columbine oh it's so




108

00:04:32,509 --> 00:04:32,819

pretty




109

00:04:33,019 --> 00:04:34,439

I do need to bring some scissors out




110

00:04:34,639 --> 00:04:35,639

here but just in case you're wondering




111

00:04:35,839 --> 00:04:38,960

that I would show you this is the




112

00:04:39,160 --> 00:04:41,370

straight line bench in the color




113

00:04:41,569 --> 00:04:45,270

traviata gray from Henry bench number




114

00:04:45,470 --> 00:04:47,650

two




115

00:04:58,649 --> 00:05:00,759

standing way back so you guys can see




116

00:05:00,959 --> 00:05:01,810

but there they are




117

00:05:02,009 --> 00:05:04,840

so we roughly stepped off how far the




118

00:05:05,040 --> 00:05:06,278

bench was from the corner of that




119

00:05:06,478 --> 00:05:08,889

container to the bench same on this side




120

00:05:09,089 --> 00:05:10,420

it looks like a little bit of an




121

00:05:10,620 --> 00:05:11,949

illusion because see if the pavers




122

00:05:12,149 --> 00:05:14,020

behind kind of go up I don't know what




123

00:05:14,220 --> 00:05:15,160

the deal is we're not going to have




124

00:05:15,360 --> 00:05:16,569

these pavers here hopefully for very




125

00:05:16,769 --> 00:05:19,689

much longer and the land kind of starts




126

00:05:19,889 --> 00:05:21,069

to slope down a little bit right here




127

00:05:21,269 --> 00:05:23,079

it's just kind of an odd situation but I




128

00:05:23,279 --> 00:05:26,340

think the benches look really good




129

00:05:26,540 --> 00:05:29,730

Russell what do you think buddy




130

00:05:29,930 --> 00:05:36,670

what do you think hey what a good boy




131

00:05:36,870 --> 00:05:39,040

also while we're up here I just want to




132

00:05:39,240 --> 00:05:40,569

show you how this gardens coming along




133

00:05:40,769 --> 00:05:42,910

so that's a supertunia limoncello and




134

00:05:43,110 --> 00:05:45,550

the dark knight alyssum I haven't had to




135

00:05:45,750 --> 00:05:47,110

water at one time because of all the




136

00:05:47,310 --> 00:05:51,218

rain and it's looking amazing okay one




137

00:05:51,418 --> 00:05:52,990

project checked off the list so let's go




138

00:05:53,189 --> 00:05:55,060

back and plant up the containers this




139

00:05:55,259 --> 00:05:56,740

set of containers is ready to roll I




140

00:05:56,939 --> 00:05:59,350

just need to go grab some plants I did




141

00:05:59,550 --> 00:06:01,270

run a drip line even though I probably




142

00:06:01,470 --> 00:06:02,710

won't hook it up this afternoon it




143

00:06:02,910 --> 00:06:04,210

depends on how much time I end up having




144

00:06:04,410 --> 00:06:06,218

but at least I have the capability of




145

00:06:06,418 --> 00:06:09,100

getting it all done before the soil went




146

00:06:09,300 --> 00:06:13,728

in so anyway let's go grab plants




147

00:06:18,310 --> 00:06:20,160

okay so I think I figured out the




148

00:06:20,360 --> 00:06:21,569

mixture of plants I want in these




149

00:06:21,769 --> 00:06:23,970

containers again these get filtered Sun




150

00:06:24,170 --> 00:06:27,240

so I can kind of do shade and Sun levers




151

00:06:27,439 --> 00:06:29,280

a little bit I'm probably not gonna do




152

00:06:29,480 --> 00:06:30,750

like supertunias because they do the




153

00:06:30,949 --> 00:06:33,210

best with full Sun all day but the




154

00:06:33,410 --> 00:06:34,650

things I chose I think will be really




155

00:06:34,850 --> 00:06:36,210

pretty together so these are not planted




156

00:06:36,410 --> 00:06:37,500

yet I just kind of stuck them in there




157

00:06:37,699 --> 00:06:39,300

I'm going to use a lemony lace




158

00:06:39,500 --> 00:06:41,310

elderberry as my centerpiece they're




159

00:06:41,509 --> 00:06:42,960

super Hardy plants so they'll probably




160

00:06:43,160 --> 00:06:44,910

winter over in these containers just




161

00:06:45,110 --> 00:06:47,699

perfectly then there are some anemones




162

00:06:47,899 --> 00:06:50,040

look at this look at how beautiful that




163

00:06:50,240 --> 00:06:54,360

is let me get the tag these are called




164

00:06:54,560 --> 00:06:56,730

fallin love sweetly can take fold apart




165

00:06:56,930 --> 00:06:59,189

son I think these are pretty tough as




166

00:06:59,389 --> 00:06:59,780

well




167

00:06:59,980 --> 00:07:02,490

zone four through eight and they bloom




168

00:07:02,689 --> 00:07:04,379

late summer through fall so I think that




169

00:07:04,579 --> 00:07:05,579

this is going to be a winner for this




170

00:07:05,779 --> 00:07:08,100

for a container anyway lots of color




171

00:07:08,300 --> 00:07:10,439

like look at all of these buds they're




172

00:07:10,639 --> 00:07:11,759

all so beautiful in cut flower




173

00:07:11,959 --> 00:07:14,370

arrangements well bonus there and then




174

00:07:14,569 --> 00:07:16,050

we've got wicked which coleus which will




175

00:07:16,250 --> 00:07:17,939

be new next year I'm able to trial it




176

00:07:18,139 --> 00:07:19,680

this year see how it does in the garden




177

00:07:19,879 --> 00:07:21,660

and it will get quite large so that'll




178

00:07:21,860 --> 00:07:23,009

be another one that's kind of like a




179

00:07:23,209 --> 00:07:24,689

filler plant kind of like the anemone




180

00:07:24,889 --> 00:07:26,550

and then I've got Diamond frost




181

00:07:26,750 --> 00:07:28,528

euphorbia which does well in a lightly




182

00:07:28,728 --> 00:07:31,230

shaded area and then dichondra silver




183

00:07:31,430 --> 00:07:32,910

fault so kind of got like all the colors




184

00:07:33,110 --> 00:07:35,939

I've got red and blue and yellow and




185

00:07:36,139 --> 00:07:37,980

green which those are the four colors I




186

00:07:38,180 --> 00:07:40,079

always make sure to have in every flower




187

00:07:40,279 --> 00:07:42,389

bed pretty much so I'm gonna grab my




188

00:07:42,589 --> 00:07:44,129

flow release plant food really quick and




189

00:07:44,329 --> 00:07:45,420

then I'm just gonna get those planted up




190

00:07:45,620 --> 00:07:47,579

I came out here last night late like




191

00:07:47,779 --> 00:07:49,889

after Benjamin was asleep and did a




192

00:07:50,089 --> 00:07:51,028

bunch of work in the garage just




193

00:07:51,228 --> 00:07:53,189

organized and cleaned it needed it's all




194

00:07:53,389 --> 00:07:57,399

bad things get really bad in the spring




195

00:08:02,610 --> 00:08:12,230

[Music]




196

00:08:15,189 --> 00:08:18,250

[Music]




197

00:08:20,670 --> 00:08:23,838

[Music]




198

00:08:33,289 --> 00:08:36,209

oh my goodness it turned out so pretty




199

00:08:36,409 --> 00:08:38,490

and it's kind of a random assortment of




200

00:08:38,690 --> 00:08:41,250

plants really but I really wanted to try




201

00:08:41,450 --> 00:08:42,899

something new in terms of a centerpiece




202

00:08:43,100 --> 00:08:46,859

something just unusual and then the




203

00:08:47,059 --> 00:08:49,199

anemones add something so beautiful and




204

00:08:49,399 --> 00:08:50,459

the diamond frost




205

00:08:50,659 --> 00:08:52,379

there's the coleus right there which is




206

00:08:52,580 --> 00:08:55,769

coleus we'll fill in this section really




207

00:08:55,970 --> 00:08:58,169

really quickly and then the dichondra




208

00:08:58,370 --> 00:09:00,509

they just like bulk up and it'll be a




209

00:09:00,710 --> 00:09:02,639

really dramatic Spiller out of the sides




210

00:09:02,840 --> 00:09:05,099

but it looks the same from all the way




211

00:09:05,299 --> 00:09:08,699

around alright so now we just have the




212

00:09:08,899 --> 00:09:10,769

two on the far end so here's what I'm




213

00:09:10,970 --> 00:09:13,169

going with in these containers I'm gonna




214

00:09:13,370 --> 00:09:14,549

do the purple fountain grass in the




215

00:09:14,750 --> 00:09:15,990

center because I think that it'll do




216

00:09:16,190 --> 00:09:17,609

really well it'll perform really




217

00:09:17,809 --> 00:09:19,889

beautifully because these containers get




218

00:09:20,090 --> 00:09:22,949

all day Sun and then to surround it I'm




219

00:09:23,149 --> 00:09:24,959

actually using two brand new plants for




220

00:09:25,159 --> 00:09:27,419

next year that I'm also trying and I




221

00:09:27,620 --> 00:09:30,329

think they're so gorgeous this is a new




222

00:09:30,529 --> 00:09:32,219

supertunia look at that it's called




223

00:09:32,419 --> 00:09:35,129

supertunia Sharon and it's beautiful




224

00:09:35,330 --> 00:09:37,409

double with the pink and white striping




225

00:09:37,610 --> 00:09:39,929

I just think it's just such a delicate




226

00:09:40,129 --> 00:09:42,419

looking supertunia and then these are




227

00:09:42,620 --> 00:09:46,139

superb ena Sparkle amethyst I think it's




228

00:09:46,340 --> 00:09:48,029

what they're called these are huge




229

00:09:48,230 --> 00:09:51,479

blooms look at those I am really excited




230

00:09:51,679 --> 00:09:53,490

to see how these do and I think that




231

00:09:53,690 --> 00:09:55,199

these are just beautiful colors together




232

00:09:55,399 --> 00:09:57,509

too so I decided just to keep it to the




233

00:09:57,710 --> 00:09:59,579

two flowers because I just really want




234

00:09:59,779 --> 00:10:01,620

to keep them a little bit separate so I




235

00:10:01,820 --> 00:10:04,289

can see how they do together in these




236

00:10:04,490 --> 00:10:05,939

containers so now I'm just going to get




237

00:10:06,139 --> 00:10:08,529

implanted




238

00:10:09,970 --> 00:10:25,828

[Music]




239

00:10:26,028 --> 00:10:28,289

these are all done what do you guys




240

00:10:28,490 --> 00:10:29,818

think of this blend don't you think it's




241

00:10:30,019 --> 00:10:33,868

just beautiful so excited and I have to




242

00:10:34,068 --> 00:10:35,488

say while I'm over here that these stand




243

00:10:35,688 --> 00:10:37,078

by me clematis that we planted last




244

00:10:37,278 --> 00:10:40,889

spring are absolutely wonderful




245

00:10:41,089 --> 00:10:43,139

they are wonderful perennials this is




246

00:10:43,339 --> 00:10:46,019

one year of growth you guys that's it




247

00:10:46,220 --> 00:10:47,729

I was kind of thinking it was going to




248

00:10:47,929 --> 00:10:49,258

take him a couple years to fill in this




249

00:10:49,458 --> 00:10:52,769

area and they have just gone for it like




250

00:10:52,970 --> 00:10:54,988

this right here is all one plant like




251

00:10:55,188 --> 00:10:57,178

this bunch right here and then these are




252

00:10:57,379 --> 00:10:59,068

the orange smoothie day lilies which are




253

00:10:59,269 --> 00:11:00,839

looking really great so these will




254

00:11:01,039 --> 00:11:03,029

actually pick up and start blooming when




255

00:11:03,230 --> 00:11:05,308

the clematis are kind of done which is




256

00:11:05,509 --> 00:11:07,558

why I chose to do what I did because I




257

00:11:07,759 --> 00:11:09,508

wanted to have staggered bloom time and




258

00:11:09,708 --> 00:11:11,909

then back in here you can see the ginger




259

00:11:12,110 --> 00:11:14,849

wine nine bark is doing excellent it has




260

00:11:15,049 --> 00:11:16,589

a little bit to do a little growing to




261

00:11:16,789 --> 00:11:18,118

do to catch up and kind of fill in this




262

00:11:18,318 --> 00:11:20,698

area back here but you can see that it's




263

00:11:20,899 --> 00:11:23,519

about ready to bloom look at all of




264

00:11:23,720 --> 00:11:27,359

those buds it's just covered and the




265

00:11:27,559 --> 00:11:29,849

color is wonderful and then if we go




266

00:11:30,049 --> 00:11:32,608

around the fence here you can see the




267

00:11:32,808 --> 00:11:34,279

orange smoothie stop right here which




268

00:11:34,480 --> 00:11:37,349

that one's a little sad I might dig that




269

00:11:37,549 --> 00:11:39,448

one up and move it but I actually know




270

00:11:39,649 --> 00:11:40,919

I'm gonna dig this one up and move it




271

00:11:41,120 --> 00:11:43,019

back because this is the only pot that I




272

00:11:43,220 --> 00:11:44,969

couldn't place properly because I do




273

00:11:45,169 --> 00:11:46,858

need to move these two plants before I




274

00:11:47,058 --> 00:11:48,659

do it I did run drip tubing though




275

00:11:48,860 --> 00:11:50,219

through the pot so I could hook them up




276

00:11:50,419 --> 00:11:52,258

when I was all done with that but I've




277

00:11:52,458 --> 00:11:55,979

got the at last roses back here I've got




278

00:11:56,179 --> 00:11:57,799

a little broken branch right there




279

00:11:58,000 --> 00:12:02,399

look at look at the color and underneath




280

00:12:02,600 --> 00:12:04,549

them I've got a bunch of two Crean




281

00:12:04,750 --> 00:12:06,839

blooming look at how beautiful that is




282

00:12:07,039 --> 00:12:10,469

and you can see what it looks like right




283

00:12:10,669 --> 00:12:14,508

up next to one of the at last roses and




284

00:12:14,708 --> 00:12:16,858

these are doing wonderful to you guys




285

00:12:17,058 --> 00:12:18,628

these were a last spring plant as well




286

00:12:18,828 --> 00:12:20,308

so I've got one in here that I cut I




287

00:12:20,509 --> 00:12:21,899

need to clean some of that to cream out




288

00:12:22,100 --> 00:12:24,448

from around it kind of choking it then




289

00:12:24,649 --> 00:12:26,938

there's this one and for more I planted




290

00:12:27,139 --> 00:12:28,948

them in kind of a hedge back here and




291

00:12:29,149 --> 00:12:32,938

they are super full of buds and I have




292

00:12:33,139 --> 00:12:35,128

to say one of the only roses that in my




293

00:12:35,328 --> 00:12:36,628

garden that doesn't have any a fits on




294

00:12:36,828 --> 00:12:39,209

it so that's saying something right




295

00:12:39,409 --> 00:12:41,339

so I need to water in these containers




296

00:12:41,539 --> 00:12:43,979

and wash my hands and then there's just




297

00:12:44,179 --> 00:12:45,419

one other thing I want to get done I




298

00:12:45,620 --> 00:12:47,128

want to bait in my garden quick and then




299

00:12:47,328 --> 00:12:49,169

I need to scatter some cat repellent in




300

00:12:49,370 --> 00:12:52,258

my window boxes because rustle and all




301

00:12:52,458 --> 00:12:53,939

the other cats around this neighborhood




302

00:12:54,139 --> 00:12:55,500

like to get into window boxes and look




303

00:12:55,700 --> 00:12:57,448

inside of our house so anyway that's




304

00:12:57,649 --> 00:12:59,039

what I'm doing next so I'm in the




305

00:12:59,240 --> 00:13:00,659

vegetable garden now and this is some




306

00:13:00,860 --> 00:13:00,990

basil




307

00:13:01,190 --> 00:13:03,599

I started inside a little while ago and




308

00:13:03,799 --> 00:13:05,609

it's not looking super hot because it's




309

00:13:05,809 --> 00:13:08,099

been so wet for the last several days




310

00:13:08,299 --> 00:13:10,459

because of all the rain but look at this




311

00:13:10,659 --> 00:13:14,128

they're clearly being eaten by something




312

00:13:14,328 --> 00:13:16,109

and so I need to bait around and which I




313

00:13:16,309 --> 00:13:17,729

typically don't have any problem with




314

00:13:17,929 --> 00:13:21,448

basil so kind of weird I've got both of




315

00:13:21,649 --> 00:13:22,679

my baits right here this is what I'm




316

00:13:22,879 --> 00:13:25,349

using in the garden this is the bug and




317

00:13:25,549 --> 00:13:26,698

slug killer I've showed this to you




318

00:13:26,899 --> 00:13:30,029

before it is a iron phosphate spinosa it




319

00:13:30,230 --> 00:13:32,758

is the active in it and is for organic




320

00:13:32,958 --> 00:13:34,019

gardening which I like and I like the




321

00:13:34,220 --> 00:13:35,758

fact that it's a beta not a spray so I'm




322

00:13:35,958 --> 00:13:37,469

not killing any like honeybees that are




323

00:13:37,669 --> 00:13:39,599

flying around it'll just get whatever's




324

00:13:39,799 --> 00:13:41,639

crawling around around the base of these




325

00:13:41,839 --> 00:13:44,578

plants and it takes care of all the big




326

00:13:44,778 --> 00:13:46,318

offenders like earwigs are a huge one




327

00:13:46,519 --> 00:13:48,719

here we don't have a lot of snails but




328

00:13:48,919 --> 00:13:51,448

we do get slugs occasionally so anyway I




329

00:13:51,649 --> 00:13:53,099

like this too because let me show you




330

00:13:53,299 --> 00:13:54,508

you can see in there it's kind of a




331

00:13:54,708 --> 00:13:57,539

grain instead of a powder and typically




332

00:13:57,740 --> 00:13:59,849

all start with diatomaceous earth first




333

00:14:00,049 --> 00:14:02,669

because it's really it's kind of a mild




334

00:14:02,870 --> 00:14:05,429

insecticide but you have to continually




335

00:14:05,629 --> 00:14:07,349

reapply it once it gets wet and it's




336

00:14:07,549 --> 00:14:09,328

been so wet from all the rain that this




337

00:14:09,528 --> 00:14:11,789

grain actually lasts through that quite




338

00:14:11,990 --> 00:14:13,620

well so I feel like it's the best way to




339

00:14:13,820 --> 00:14:16,258

go right now and I really I haven't had




340

00:14:16,458 --> 00:14:18,059

to treat very many other things in fact




341

00:14:18,259 --> 00:14:20,429

the only thing I have put any bait




342

00:14:20,629 --> 00:14:22,198

around in the garden is the cabbage let




343

00:14:22,399 --> 00:14:23,639

me show you what that looks like cabbage




344

00:14:23,839 --> 00:14:26,459

is looking pretty good and with just two




345

00:14:26,659 --> 00:14:28,828

applications of bait throughout the




346

00:14:29,028 --> 00:14:31,229

spring I did notice and I think this is




347

00:14:31,429 --> 00:14:33,359

when I started putting the bait on let's




348

00:14:33,559 --> 00:14:35,849

see I thought I'd noticed yeah see that




349

00:14:36,049 --> 00:14:38,089

right there a little bit of slug damage




350

00:14:38,289 --> 00:14:40,979

that's when I started baiting the plants




351

00:14:41,179 --> 00:14:43,318

and they look amazing now isn't that the




352

00:14:43,519 --> 00:14:44,779

prettiest thing ever




353

00:14:44,980 --> 00:14:48,209

so pretty so this is super easy to use I




354

00:14:48,409 --> 00:14:50,039

just open up the cap and shake it around




355

00:14:50,240 --> 00:14:50,729

the base of the




356

00:14:50,929 --> 00:14:53,318

plants




357

00:15:02,750 --> 00:15:05,639

all right that should do it and this is




358

00:15:05,839 --> 00:15:08,368

the next one I'm using this is called go




359

00:15:08,568 --> 00:15:12,508

away rabbit dog and cat repellent it's




360

00:15:12,708 --> 00:15:14,639

one I've actually not tried so I'm




361

00:15:14,839 --> 00:15:16,258

looking forward to trying this the




362

00:15:16,458 --> 00:15:18,688

active ingredients are cinnamon and




363

00:15:18,889 --> 00:15:21,448

thyme oil so it probably smells pretty




364

00:15:21,649 --> 00:15:24,808

good yeah not bad




365

00:15:25,009 --> 00:15:28,078

oh my sneeze it's not stinky it's not




366

00:15:28,278 --> 00:15:30,808

great but it's not stinky and you know I




367

00:15:31,009 --> 00:15:32,308

don't really want to put cat repellent




368

00:15:32,509 --> 00:15:34,019

around because I like Russell and I




369

00:15:34,220 --> 00:15:36,269

don't really need to repel him for much




370

00:15:36,470 --> 00:15:38,128

but he's trying to get in my window




371

00:15:38,328 --> 00:15:41,339

boxes a lot too when he wants in and I




372

00:15:41,539 --> 00:15:43,078

don't really want him to wreck my plants




373

00:15:43,278 --> 00:15:46,049

so I am gonna sprinkle a little bit so




374

00:15:46,250 --> 00:15:48,719

here goes this is the one he tries to




375

00:15:48,919 --> 00:15:50,039

get it in the most and then use




376

00:15:50,240 --> 00:15:52,258

scratches and claws at the screen it




377

00:15:52,458 --> 00:16:01,459

drives me nuts your pipe and smoke it




378

00:16:01,659 --> 00:16:06,209

here he is now hey Russell what you




379

00:16:06,409 --> 00:16:09,448

doing buddy yeah did you sense that I




380

00:16:09,649 --> 00:16:12,919

was talking about you did you sense it




381

00:16:13,120 --> 00:16:15,508

we need to get you a cat door that would




382

00:16:15,708 --> 00:16:16,948

probably eliminate all of my problems




383

00:16:17,149 --> 00:16:19,169

the only issue with that is that it




384

00:16:19,370 --> 00:16:20,399

would welcome all the other neighbor




385

00:16:20,600 --> 00:16:22,169

cats into our house and I don't really




386

00:16:22,370 --> 00:16:24,479

want to do either all right I got all of




387

00:16:24,679 --> 00:16:26,308

the window boxes treated I will let you




388

00:16:26,509 --> 00:16:27,688

guys know how this works




389

00:16:27,889 --> 00:16:29,519

it'd be great if it works really really




390

00:16:29,720 --> 00:16:31,229

well I'm assuming I'm gonna have to




391

00:16:31,429 --> 00:16:32,849

reapply it every once in a while hold on




392

00:16:33,049 --> 00:16:34,948

okay so it doesn't say how often I'm




393

00:16:35,149 --> 00:16:37,979

supposed to apply it but I'm guessing I




394

00:16:38,179 --> 00:16:39,899

just keep reapplying it pretty heavy for




395

00:16:40,100 --> 00:16:41,519

the first a little bit to at least




396

00:16:41,720 --> 00:16:43,409

create a stronger version and then it'll




397

00:16:43,610 --> 00:16:46,318

probably last longer in between times so




398

00:16:46,519 --> 00:16:49,198

anyway yeah that is it for today's video




399

00:16:49,399 --> 00:16:50,698

I think that's all I have time for I do




400

00:16:50,899 --> 00:16:52,169

have to go water some things in the




401

00:16:52,370 --> 00:16:54,269

greenhouse but then I want to go in and




402

00:16:54,470 --> 00:16:56,339

hang out with Benjamin so anyway hope




403

00:16:56,539 --> 00:16:57,508

you guys enjoyed this video we'll see




404

00:16:57,708 --> 00:17:02,708

you in the next one bye

Timelapse & Tour | The Greenhouse that Love Built | DIY Window Greenhouse

VideosRoots and Refuge Farm posted the article • 0 comments • 47 views • 2019-04-24 19:59 • came from similar tags

 

 
 
The build of the absolute most beautiful and thoughtful gift in the world, a window greenhouse made from reclaimed windows by a husband for his gardening wife. We are a big family on a small farm in Central Arkansas, growing our own food and living the most beautiful life with faith and family.




Products used in this build:

The hinges used for the potting tables: https://amzn.to/2FMe1fw

Automatic vent opening hinges: https://amzn.to/2TI7Xtv




Those beautiful green planters on the front porch are made by Greenstalk! I love them because they are American made by a family owned business.

Planting Up Our Hayracks!

VideosGarden Answer posted the article • 0 comments • 2 views • 1 hours ago • came from similar tags

 

 
 
1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,749

hey guys how's it going I am so excited




2

00:00:01,949 --> 00:00:03,609

for today's project we are going to be




3

00:00:03,810 --> 00:00:05,828

planting up all 40 of these hay racks




4

00:00:06,028 --> 00:00:08,108

that run along the front of our fence




5

00:00:08,308 --> 00:00:10,600

line here we did this last year for the




6

00:00:10,800 --> 00:00:13,030

very first time and it was incredible we




7

00:00:13,230 --> 00:00:16,240

enjoyed it so much and I planted so many




8

00:00:16,440 --> 00:00:18,970

plants up here we had lemon coral sedum




9

00:00:19,170 --> 00:00:21,400

super bean a large lilac blue supertunia




10

00:00:21,600 --> 00:00:23,620

royal magenta and supertunia Bordeaux it




11

00:00:23,820 --> 00:00:25,870

was a beautiful blend of plants but I




12

00:00:26,070 --> 00:00:28,239

think because it was the first year of




13

00:00:28,439 --> 00:00:29,560

the project I was so excited that I




14

00:00:29,760 --> 00:00:31,478

overkilled on how many plants I put any




15

00:00:31,678 --> 00:00:35,108

cherrick like I put 11 plants in each




16

00:00:35,308 --> 00:00:37,628

one of these hay racks which is probably




17

00:00:37,829 --> 00:00:39,939

a little bit too much so I'm taking a




18

00:00:40,140 --> 00:00:41,439

different approach this year in fact let




19

00:00:41,640 --> 00:00:43,479

me show you what I have planned in terms




20

00:00:43,679 --> 00:00:44,829

of plants we've got them in the back of




21

00:00:45,030 --> 00:00:47,259

the truck so I'm going to use a mixture




22

00:00:47,460 --> 00:00:48,788

of three different plants we've got




23

00:00:48,988 --> 00:00:50,858

supertunia vista bubble gum which is a




24

00:00:51,058 --> 00:00:53,259

favorite of mine we have supertunia




25

00:00:53,460 --> 00:00:54,338

vista silver berry




26

00:00:54,539 --> 00:00:56,739

and then a sweet caroline light green




27

00:00:56,939 --> 00:00:59,140

sweet potato vine so instead of 11




28

00:00:59,340 --> 00:01:01,959

plants I'm gonna use just 5 in each one




29

00:01:02,159 --> 00:01:03,369

of these hay racks because I really




30

00:01:03,570 --> 00:01:06,189

wanted to show you guys how you can




31

00:01:06,390 --> 00:01:08,409

create something like this any type of




32

00:01:08,609 --> 00:01:10,149

project either in a container or in your




33

00:01:10,349 --> 00:01:12,310

landscape with huge impact for a lot




34

00:01:12,510 --> 00:01:14,379

less if you choose the right kind of




35

00:01:14,579 --> 00:01:16,959

plant and all of the supertunia Vista




36

00:01:17,159 --> 00:01:20,250

series they're amazingly vigorous




37

00:01:20,450 --> 00:01:22,750

they're just amazing plants and like no




38

00:01:22,950 --> 00:01:24,250

matter where I've planted them they




39

00:01:24,450 --> 00:01:26,980

always do really well and they grow huge




40

00:01:27,180 --> 00:01:30,128

full of bloom so I've got all three of




41

00:01:30,328 --> 00:01:31,599

these plants kind of lined out in the




42

00:01:31,799 --> 00:01:33,369

basket because I wanted to show you kind




43

00:01:33,569 --> 00:01:35,469

of what I'm thinking in terms of layout




44

00:01:35,670 --> 00:01:37,390

so I'm going to start with a Vista




45

00:01:37,590 --> 00:01:38,950

silver berry on this side and then a




46

00:01:39,150 --> 00:01:40,988

bubblegum my sweet potato vine will be




47

00:01:41,188 --> 00:01:43,058

in the middle here silver berry and then




48

00:01:43,259 --> 00:01:45,399

bubblegum again so you'll notice that we




49

00:01:45,599 --> 00:01:47,980

already have soil this is fresh soil I




50

00:01:48,180 --> 00:01:50,558

brought a bag of it up here this is what




51

00:01:50,759 --> 00:01:52,959

they're full of just because this is




52

00:01:53,159 --> 00:01:55,329

such a small reservoir I don't feel like




53

00:01:55,530 --> 00:01:57,189

I can recycle soil from last year




54

00:01:57,390 --> 00:01:59,079

because those plants utilize every last




55

00:01:59,280 --> 00:02:01,448

ounce in fact we will be adding




56

00:02:01,649 --> 00:02:03,278

fertilizer we fertilize on a weekly




57

00:02:03,478 --> 00:02:05,159

basis to keep the plants really happy




58

00:02:05,359 --> 00:02:07,959

annuals that you want to perform really




59

00:02:08,159 --> 00:02:10,300

big need quite a bit of food so I'm also




60

00:02:10,500 --> 00:02:12,340

I haven't done this yet today but I'm




61

00:02:12,539 --> 00:02:13,330

going to be adding in




62

00:02:13,530 --> 00:02:15,310

a slow-release plant food into the soil




63

00:02:15,509 --> 00:02:17,590

before I plant couple of other things I




64

00:02:17,789 --> 00:02:19,150

wanted to mention these are the same




65

00:02:19,349 --> 00:02:21,640

Coco fiber liners from last year there




66

00:02:21,840 --> 00:02:23,439

is a difference in quality you can find




67

00:02:23,639 --> 00:02:25,510

really thick ones or fairly thin ones




68

00:02:25,710 --> 00:02:27,700

spring for the thick ones because they




69

00:02:27,900 --> 00:02:30,009

will last you for several years so these




70

00:02:30,209 --> 00:02:32,050

liners camera with the hay racks which




71

00:02:32,250 --> 00:02:33,790

were all sent to us by garden artisans




72

00:02:33,990 --> 00:02:35,830

last year and then I also wanted to




73

00:02:36,030 --> 00:02:37,540

mention the irrigation so we did run




74

00:02:37,740 --> 00:02:39,490

drip and I think when you're doing a




75

00:02:39,689 --> 00:02:41,710

project especially of this size you want




76

00:02:41,909 --> 00:02:43,450

to make sure to have irrigation set up




77

00:02:43,650 --> 00:02:45,850

really for for anything if you can run




78

00:02:46,050 --> 00:02:47,770

drip to any of your containers it makes




79

00:02:47,969 --> 00:02:50,350

life so much easier but we did four to




80

00:02:50,550 --> 00:02:52,780

gallon per hour emitters per basket and




81

00:02:52,979 --> 00:02:55,330

in the spring we ran it for about 10 to




82

00:02:55,530 --> 00:02:56,890

15 minutes every day which is what we'll




83

00:02:57,090 --> 00:02:59,080

start with today and then as it gets




84

00:02:59,280 --> 00:03:00,939

warmer or if we have extra windy days




85

00:03:01,139 --> 00:03:03,130

we'll increase the amount of time so




86

00:03:03,330 --> 00:03:04,630

like last year when it was above




87

00:03:04,830 --> 00:03:07,810

probably I think above 90 we started




88

00:03:08,009 --> 00:03:09,430

running them twice a day so morning and




89

00:03:09,629 --> 00:03:11,439

evening for 15 minutes each time and our




90

00:03:11,639 --> 00:03:14,469

plants were extremely extremely happy so




91

00:03:14,669 --> 00:03:16,150

let me go ahead and plant this one up




92

00:03:16,349 --> 00:03:18,069

just so I can show you guys how this




93

00:03:18,269 --> 00:03:19,689

whole thing is gonna go every single one




94

00:03:19,889 --> 00:03:21,160

of these hay racks would be planted




95

00:03:21,360 --> 00:03:23,560

exactly the same way I just want to give




96

00:03:23,759 --> 00:03:24,789

you guys a feel for it




97

00:03:24,989 --> 00:03:27,430

so in this hay rack I'm just gonna add a




98

00:03:27,629 --> 00:03:30,250

few tablespoons it's a brand new




99

00:03:30,449 --> 00:03:32,770

container a few tablespoons of this




100

00:03:32,969 --> 00:03:36,069

continuous release plant food and I'm




101

00:03:36,269 --> 00:03:38,050

just gonna work that in to the top layer




102

00:03:38,250 --> 00:03:40,420

of soil and I do have gloves for the




103

00:03:40,620 --> 00:03:41,920

rest of this project I just forgot to




104

00:03:42,120 --> 00:03:44,080

grab them I'll start with my Center




105

00:03:44,280 --> 00:03:45,610

plant that way I can make sure to get




106

00:03:45,810 --> 00:03:48,219

everything spaced proper so that's right




107

00:03:48,419 --> 00:03:50,110

here and I'm going to position these




108

00:03:50,310 --> 00:03:52,360

right in the center of the basket like




109

00:03:52,560 --> 00:03:54,069

this because I'm hoping they'll trail




110

00:03:54,269 --> 00:03:56,920

back and on the front side so it's




111

00:03:57,120 --> 00:03:59,349

pretty on both sides okay we'll do the




112

00:03:59,549 --> 00:04:01,689

silver berry on this side just like that




113

00:04:01,889 --> 00:04:04,569

and these sweet potato vines so the




114

00:04:04,769 --> 00:04:06,160

difference last year I use lemon coral




115

00:04:06,360 --> 00:04:08,050

sedum which actually did really really




116

00:04:08,250 --> 00:04:10,629

good I was surprised with how much water




117

00:04:10,829 --> 00:04:13,030

it was getting it held up and it grew




118

00:04:13,229 --> 00:04:15,250

really nicely but they're not quite as




119

00:04:15,449 --> 00:04:17,800

vigorous as a potato vine so we didn't




120

00:04:18,000 --> 00:04:20,319

get that really strong foliage accent so




121

00:04:20,519 --> 00:04:22,509

I'm excited for that but you do have to




122

00:04:22,709 --> 00:04:24,850

be mindful these are water hungry plants




123

00:04:25,050 --> 00:04:26,540

they like to be moist




124

00:04:26,740 --> 00:04:28,069

quite a bit of the time so that's




125

00:04:28,269 --> 00:04:30,319

something else to consider when you're




126

00:04:30,519 --> 00:04:31,730

picking out plants if you have an




127

00:04:31,930 --> 00:04:33,230

irrigation setup to your pots it's no




128

00:04:33,430 --> 00:04:35,778

big deal but if you don't you might want




129

00:04:35,978 --> 00:04:38,240

to you know adjust accordingly also when




130

00:04:38,439 --> 00:04:39,710

you're picking out your plants it's good




131

00:04:39,910 --> 00:04:41,838

to consider the growth habit of all of




132

00:04:42,038 --> 00:04:43,850

the plants because like with the lemon




133

00:04:44,050 --> 00:04:45,559

curl like I said it did really well and




134

00:04:45,759 --> 00:04:47,569

it did but you couldn't see it very well




135

00:04:47,769 --> 00:04:49,639

because all the other plants were so




136

00:04:49,839 --> 00:04:51,170

vigorous they were kind of growing over




137

00:04:51,370 --> 00:04:52,670

the top of it and if you came over and




138

00:04:52,870 --> 00:04:54,199

kind of spread those part plants apart




139

00:04:54,399 --> 00:04:55,790

you could see the lemon Coral they're




140

00:04:55,990 --> 00:04:58,309

just shining and looking beautiful but




141

00:04:58,509 --> 00:04:59,660

it's that's something to think about all




142

00:04:59,860 --> 00:05:01,100

of these plants kind of have the same




143

00:05:01,300 --> 00:05:02,959

vigor so I think they'll work really




144

00:05:03,158 --> 00:05:05,300

well together and so you'll be able to




145

00:05:05,500 --> 00:05:06,980

actually see our foliage accent this




146

00:05:07,180 --> 00:05:08,930

year okay so I think we're gonna set up




147

00:05:09,129 --> 00:05:10,730

a camera and just get a time-lapse of me




148

00:05:10,930 --> 00:05:12,319

planting the rest of these it's gonna




149

00:05:12,519 --> 00:05:13,939

look a lot faster than it happens in




150

00:05:14,139 --> 00:05:15,100

real life here we go




151

00:05:15,300 --> 00:05:42,399

[Music]




152

00:05:42,598 --> 00:05:45,129

oh my gosh you guys it turned out so




153

00:05:45,329 --> 00:05:46,989

pretty I mean if you would have told me




154

00:05:47,189 --> 00:05:48,639

even two years ago that I would be




155

00:05:48,838 --> 00:05:51,338

planting up 40 hay racks at my own house




156

00:05:51,538 --> 00:05:53,079

I would not have believed you




157

00:05:53,278 --> 00:05:55,149

this is just gonna be such a beautiful




158

00:05:55,348 --> 00:05:57,819

show and I think it could be scaled to




159

00:05:58,019 --> 00:06:00,009

any size whether you're doing one pot or




160

00:06:00,209 --> 00:06:03,338

one hay rack or ten or 40 or 100 you




161

00:06:03,538 --> 00:06:05,228

could kind of take these same planting




162

00:06:05,428 --> 00:06:07,209

principles and get the same results I




163

00:06:07,408 --> 00:06:09,028

think that this looks way more




164

00:06:09,228 --> 00:06:11,259

appropriately planted than it did last




165

00:06:11,459 --> 00:06:13,569

year to be completely honest I think




166

00:06:13,769 --> 00:06:15,759

that the plants will be happier they




167

00:06:15,959 --> 00:06:18,040

won't be in such hard competition with




168

00:06:18,240 --> 00:06:19,809

each other so that they'll be able to




169

00:06:20,009 --> 00:06:21,819

flourish a little bit more and the last




170

00:06:22,019 --> 00:06:23,528

thing that we're gonna do today is we're




171

00:06:23,728 --> 00:06:25,028

gonna plant up these large estate




172

00:06:25,228 --> 00:06:27,278

planters right here with some other fun




173

00:06:27,478 --> 00:06:29,519

stuff so vertigo Pennisetum you guys




174

00:06:29,718 --> 00:06:32,949

this is an amazing grass they grow so




175

00:06:33,149 --> 00:06:35,649

big in fact let me see four to four to




176

00:06:35,848 --> 00:06:38,230

eight feet so anywhere from four to




177

00:06:38,430 --> 00:06:39,639

eight feet and I think that that depends




178

00:06:39,838 --> 00:06:41,199

on how much Sun it's getting and how




179

00:06:41,399 --> 00:06:43,359

much water it gets as well I think it'll




180

00:06:43,559 --> 00:06:45,879

get bigger with more of those two things




181

00:06:46,079 --> 00:06:48,338

I planted these in several spots last




182

00:06:48,538 --> 00:06:50,139

year and they just they were a




183

00:06:50,338 --> 00:06:52,359

spectacular grass so I decided I wanted




184

00:06:52,559 --> 00:06:54,069

to do it in these planters up here and




185

00:06:54,269 --> 00:06:55,718

then to break it up because it is a




186

00:06:55,918 --> 00:06:57,669

darker colored grass and the blades do




187

00:06:57,869 --> 00:07:00,009

get quite large as the plant grows it's




188

00:07:00,209 --> 00:07:02,049

got a really strappy appearance but I




189

00:07:02,249 --> 00:07:03,759

wanted to break up the dark grass with




190

00:07:03,959 --> 00:07:05,410

the dark pot with some really pretty fun




191

00:07:05,610 --> 00:07:07,540

color underneath and I'm also going for




192

00:07:07,740 --> 00:07:09,160

the same thing I'm using way fewer




193

00:07:09,360 --> 00:07:11,859

plants in here six supertunia Vista




194

00:07:12,059 --> 00:07:13,959

bubble gum just spaced as evenly as I




195

00:07:14,158 --> 00:07:14,468

could




196

00:07:14,668 --> 00:07:16,509

around the outer part and then this one




197

00:07:16,709 --> 00:07:18,669

is exciting so I think this one's new




198

00:07:18,869 --> 00:07:20,109

this year it's called Diamond Mountain




199

00:07:20,309 --> 00:07:22,389

euphorbia you might recognize the name




200

00:07:22,588 --> 00:07:25,179

Diamond Frost which is very similar but




201

00:07:25,379 --> 00:07:26,949

Diamond Frost is more of an accent plant




202

00:07:27,149 --> 00:07:29,499

it kind of grows and just like it's more




203

00:07:29,699 --> 00:07:31,809

of a wispy appearance this one grows 2




204

00:07:32,009 --> 00:07:35,290

to 3 feet tall and like 18 inch spread




205

00:07:35,490 --> 00:07:37,088

on them so I think it's gonna be a




206

00:07:37,288 --> 00:07:39,459

gorgeous stair-step effect will have the




207

00:07:39,658 --> 00:07:41,468

huge grass they're really pretty just




208

00:07:41,668 --> 00:07:44,499

kind of block of white and then the pink




209

00:07:44,699 --> 00:07:47,230

kind of Spiller supertunia down below so




210

00:07:47,430 --> 00:07:48,489

we've already filled these up with soil




211

00:07:48,689 --> 00:07:50,980

as well and then I put the slow release




212

00:07:51,180 --> 00:07:53,528

fertilizer in so I am ready just to pop




213

00:07:53,728 --> 00:07:55,119

these all in and then we can get it




214

00:07:55,319 --> 00:07:56,340

overall look and




215

00:07:56,540 --> 00:07:59,730

we haven't shown yet is that there is




216

00:07:59,930 --> 00:08:01,980

kind of a repeat on the other side here




217

00:08:02,180 --> 00:08:04,139

we have the same container on this side




218

00:08:04,339 --> 00:08:05,910

of the opening and then we had room for




219

00:08:06,110 --> 00:08:08,340

one hay rack on this side and I thought




220

00:08:08,540 --> 00:08:09,750

it was important even though it's a




221

00:08:09,949 --> 00:08:11,670

little short section offense to kind of




222

00:08:11,870 --> 00:08:13,920

mirror what we had going on so it looked




223

00:08:14,120 --> 00:08:16,259

like a cohesive idea so I think what I'm




224

00:08:16,459 --> 00:08:17,639

gonna do is I'll just start right here




225

00:08:17,839 --> 00:08:20,799

and I'll get this one planted




226

00:08:22,160 --> 00:08:33,759

[Music]




227

00:08:33,960 --> 00:08:35,649

so there you have it they are all




228

00:08:35,849 --> 00:08:37,359

planted up for the season and I'm just




229

00:08:37,559 --> 00:08:39,759

so thrilled to see color I think it's




230

00:08:39,960 --> 00:08:42,129

gonna be just such a gorgeous show we




231

00:08:42,330 --> 00:08:43,659

did turn the water on just to test




232

00:08:43,860 --> 00:08:46,359

everything so you can see right here I




233

00:08:46,559 --> 00:08:48,549

have got an 8 to gallon per hour




234

00:08:48,750 --> 00:08:50,589

emitters dispersed fairly evenly




235

00:08:50,789 --> 00:08:51,939

throughout each one of these large




236

00:08:52,139 --> 00:08:54,129

containers and then on the hay racks




237

00:08:54,330 --> 00:08:56,229

here you can see kind of how they're




238

00:08:56,429 --> 00:08:57,819

running and see that water just coming




239

00:08:58,019 --> 00:09:00,698

out really nicely and we watch them




240

00:09:00,899 --> 00:09:02,679

pretty closely throughout the first




241

00:09:02,879 --> 00:09:04,179

atleast day or two that we're running




242

00:09:04,379 --> 00:09:05,349

the drips to make sure we don't have any




243

00:09:05,549 --> 00:09:08,319

leaks or any you know any problems any




244

00:09:08,519 --> 00:09:10,089

plugged in ITER's from the previous year




245

00:09:10,289 --> 00:09:12,429

because we leave this out all winter we




246

00:09:12,629 --> 00:09:13,839

don't have to put the drip system away




247

00:09:14,039 --> 00:09:16,328

because there's no water left in it all




248

00:09:16,528 --> 00:09:18,279

the water comes out of these right here




249

00:09:18,480 --> 00:09:20,409

so we just kind of look at them closely




250

00:09:20,610 --> 00:09:21,879

to make sure that nothing's happened




251

00:09:22,080 --> 00:09:24,399

over the course of a winter so anyway I




252

00:09:24,600 --> 00:09:26,409

hope that these type of videos are




253

00:09:26,610 --> 00:09:28,059

helpful to you guys just to see what




254

00:09:28,259 --> 00:09:29,679

containers like this look like in the




255

00:09:29,879 --> 00:09:31,419

beginning while I think it looks




256

00:09:31,620 --> 00:09:34,029

absolutely beautiful I cannot wait to




257

00:09:34,230 --> 00:09:35,500

show you what they look like even a




258

00:09:35,700 --> 00:09:38,109

month or two from now so stay tuned for




259

00:09:38,309 --> 00:09:39,399

those videos we'll be doing lots of




260

00:09:39,600 --> 00:09:41,199

updates throughout the season thank you




261

00:09:41,399 --> 00:09:42,609

guys so much for watching and we will




262

00:09:42,809 --> 00:09:44,159

see you in the next video bye




263

00:09:44,360 --> 00:09:49,360

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,749

hey guys how's it going I am so excited




2

00:00:01,949 --> 00:00:03,609

for today's project we are going to be




3

00:00:03,810 --> 00:00:05,828

planting up all 40 of these hay racks




4

00:00:06,028 --> 00:00:08,108

that run along the front of our fence




5

00:00:08,308 --> 00:00:10,600

line here we did this last year for the




6

00:00:10,800 --> 00:00:13,030

very first time and it was incredible we




7

00:00:13,230 --> 00:00:16,240

enjoyed it so much and I planted so many




8

00:00:16,440 --> 00:00:18,970

plants up here we had lemon coral sedum




9

00:00:19,170 --> 00:00:21,400

super bean a large lilac blue supertunia




10

00:00:21,600 --> 00:00:23,620

royal magenta and supertunia Bordeaux it




11

00:00:23,820 --> 00:00:25,870

was a beautiful blend of plants but I




12

00:00:26,070 --> 00:00:28,239

think because it was the first year of




13

00:00:28,439 --> 00:00:29,560

the project I was so excited that I




14

00:00:29,760 --> 00:00:31,478

overkilled on how many plants I put any




15

00:00:31,678 --> 00:00:35,108

cherrick like I put 11 plants in each




16

00:00:35,308 --> 00:00:37,628

one of these hay racks which is probably




17

00:00:37,829 --> 00:00:39,939

a little bit too much so I'm taking a




18

00:00:40,140 --> 00:00:41,439

different approach this year in fact let




19

00:00:41,640 --> 00:00:43,479

me show you what I have planned in terms




20

00:00:43,679 --> 00:00:44,829

of plants we've got them in the back of




21

00:00:45,030 --> 00:00:47,259

the truck so I'm going to use a mixture




22

00:00:47,460 --> 00:00:48,788

of three different plants we've got




23

00:00:48,988 --> 00:00:50,858

supertunia vista bubble gum which is a




24

00:00:51,058 --> 00:00:53,259

favorite of mine we have supertunia




25

00:00:53,460 --> 00:00:54,338

vista silver berry




26

00:00:54,539 --> 00:00:56,739

and then a sweet caroline light green




27

00:00:56,939 --> 00:00:59,140

sweet potato vine so instead of 11




28

00:00:59,340 --> 00:01:01,959

plants I'm gonna use just 5 in each one




29

00:01:02,159 --> 00:01:03,369

of these hay racks because I really




30

00:01:03,570 --> 00:01:06,189

wanted to show you guys how you can




31

00:01:06,390 --> 00:01:08,409

create something like this any type of




32

00:01:08,609 --> 00:01:10,149

project either in a container or in your




33

00:01:10,349 --> 00:01:12,310

landscape with huge impact for a lot




34

00:01:12,510 --> 00:01:14,379

less if you choose the right kind of




35

00:01:14,579 --> 00:01:16,959

plant and all of the supertunia Vista




36

00:01:17,159 --> 00:01:20,250

series they're amazingly vigorous




37

00:01:20,450 --> 00:01:22,750

they're just amazing plants and like no




38

00:01:22,950 --> 00:01:24,250

matter where I've planted them they




39

00:01:24,450 --> 00:01:26,980

always do really well and they grow huge




40

00:01:27,180 --> 00:01:30,128

full of bloom so I've got all three of




41

00:01:30,328 --> 00:01:31,599

these plants kind of lined out in the




42

00:01:31,799 --> 00:01:33,369

basket because I wanted to show you kind




43

00:01:33,569 --> 00:01:35,469

of what I'm thinking in terms of layout




44

00:01:35,670 --> 00:01:37,390

so I'm going to start with a Vista




45

00:01:37,590 --> 00:01:38,950

silver berry on this side and then a




46

00:01:39,150 --> 00:01:40,988

bubblegum my sweet potato vine will be




47

00:01:41,188 --> 00:01:43,058

in the middle here silver berry and then




48

00:01:43,259 --> 00:01:45,399

bubblegum again so you'll notice that we




49

00:01:45,599 --> 00:01:47,980

already have soil this is fresh soil I




50

00:01:48,180 --> 00:01:50,558

brought a bag of it up here this is what




51

00:01:50,759 --> 00:01:52,959

they're full of just because this is




52

00:01:53,159 --> 00:01:55,329

such a small reservoir I don't feel like




53

00:01:55,530 --> 00:01:57,189

I can recycle soil from last year




54

00:01:57,390 --> 00:01:59,079

because those plants utilize every last




55

00:01:59,280 --> 00:02:01,448

ounce in fact we will be adding




56

00:02:01,649 --> 00:02:03,278

fertilizer we fertilize on a weekly




57

00:02:03,478 --> 00:02:05,159

basis to keep the plants really happy




58

00:02:05,359 --> 00:02:07,959

annuals that you want to perform really




59

00:02:08,159 --> 00:02:10,300

big need quite a bit of food so I'm also




60

00:02:10,500 --> 00:02:12,340

I haven't done this yet today but I'm




61

00:02:12,539 --> 00:02:13,330

going to be adding in




62

00:02:13,530 --> 00:02:15,310

a slow-release plant food into the soil




63

00:02:15,509 --> 00:02:17,590

before I plant couple of other things I




64

00:02:17,789 --> 00:02:19,150

wanted to mention these are the same




65

00:02:19,349 --> 00:02:21,640

Coco fiber liners from last year there




66

00:02:21,840 --> 00:02:23,439

is a difference in quality you can find




67

00:02:23,639 --> 00:02:25,510

really thick ones or fairly thin ones




68

00:02:25,710 --> 00:02:27,700

spring for the thick ones because they




69

00:02:27,900 --> 00:02:30,009

will last you for several years so these




70

00:02:30,209 --> 00:02:32,050

liners camera with the hay racks which




71

00:02:32,250 --> 00:02:33,790

were all sent to us by garden artisans




72

00:02:33,990 --> 00:02:35,830

last year and then I also wanted to




73

00:02:36,030 --> 00:02:37,540

mention the irrigation so we did run




74

00:02:37,740 --> 00:02:39,490

drip and I think when you're doing a




75

00:02:39,689 --> 00:02:41,710

project especially of this size you want




76

00:02:41,909 --> 00:02:43,450

to make sure to have irrigation set up




77

00:02:43,650 --> 00:02:45,850

really for for anything if you can run




78

00:02:46,050 --> 00:02:47,770

drip to any of your containers it makes




79

00:02:47,969 --> 00:02:50,350

life so much easier but we did four to




80

00:02:50,550 --> 00:02:52,780

gallon per hour emitters per basket and




81

00:02:52,979 --> 00:02:55,330

in the spring we ran it for about 10 to




82

00:02:55,530 --> 00:02:56,890

15 minutes every day which is what we'll




83

00:02:57,090 --> 00:02:59,080

start with today and then as it gets




84

00:02:59,280 --> 00:03:00,939

warmer or if we have extra windy days




85

00:03:01,139 --> 00:03:03,130

we'll increase the amount of time so




86

00:03:03,330 --> 00:03:04,630

like last year when it was above




87

00:03:04,830 --> 00:03:07,810

probably I think above 90 we started




88

00:03:08,009 --> 00:03:09,430

running them twice a day so morning and




89

00:03:09,629 --> 00:03:11,439

evening for 15 minutes each time and our




90

00:03:11,639 --> 00:03:14,469

plants were extremely extremely happy so




91

00:03:14,669 --> 00:03:16,150

let me go ahead and plant this one up




92

00:03:16,349 --> 00:03:18,069

just so I can show you guys how this




93

00:03:18,269 --> 00:03:19,689

whole thing is gonna go every single one




94

00:03:19,889 --> 00:03:21,160

of these hay racks would be planted




95

00:03:21,360 --> 00:03:23,560

exactly the same way I just want to give




96

00:03:23,759 --> 00:03:24,789

you guys a feel for it




97

00:03:24,989 --> 00:03:27,430

so in this hay rack I'm just gonna add a




98

00:03:27,629 --> 00:03:30,250

few tablespoons it's a brand new




99

00:03:30,449 --> 00:03:32,770

container a few tablespoons of this




100

00:03:32,969 --> 00:03:36,069

continuous release plant food and I'm




101

00:03:36,269 --> 00:03:38,050

just gonna work that in to the top layer




102

00:03:38,250 --> 00:03:40,420

of soil and I do have gloves for the




103

00:03:40,620 --> 00:03:41,920

rest of this project I just forgot to




104

00:03:42,120 --> 00:03:44,080

grab them I'll start with my Center




105

00:03:44,280 --> 00:03:45,610

plant that way I can make sure to get




106

00:03:45,810 --> 00:03:48,219

everything spaced proper so that's right




107

00:03:48,419 --> 00:03:50,110

here and I'm going to position these




108

00:03:50,310 --> 00:03:52,360

right in the center of the basket like




109

00:03:52,560 --> 00:03:54,069

this because I'm hoping they'll trail




110

00:03:54,269 --> 00:03:56,920

back and on the front side so it's




111

00:03:57,120 --> 00:03:59,349

pretty on both sides okay we'll do the




112

00:03:59,549 --> 00:04:01,689

silver berry on this side just like that




113

00:04:01,889 --> 00:04:04,569

and these sweet potato vines so the




114

00:04:04,769 --> 00:04:06,160

difference last year I use lemon coral




115

00:04:06,360 --> 00:04:08,050

sedum which actually did really really




116

00:04:08,250 --> 00:04:10,629

good I was surprised with how much water




117

00:04:10,829 --> 00:04:13,030

it was getting it held up and it grew




118

00:04:13,229 --> 00:04:15,250

really nicely but they're not quite as




119

00:04:15,449 --> 00:04:17,800

vigorous as a potato vine so we didn't




120

00:04:18,000 --> 00:04:20,319

get that really strong foliage accent so




121

00:04:20,519 --> 00:04:22,509

I'm excited for that but you do have to




122

00:04:22,709 --> 00:04:24,850

be mindful these are water hungry plants




123

00:04:25,050 --> 00:04:26,540

they like to be moist




124

00:04:26,740 --> 00:04:28,069

quite a bit of the time so that's




125

00:04:28,269 --> 00:04:30,319

something else to consider when you're




126

00:04:30,519 --> 00:04:31,730

picking out plants if you have an




127

00:04:31,930 --> 00:04:33,230

irrigation setup to your pots it's no




128

00:04:33,430 --> 00:04:35,778

big deal but if you don't you might want




129

00:04:35,978 --> 00:04:38,240

to you know adjust accordingly also when




130

00:04:38,439 --> 00:04:39,710

you're picking out your plants it's good




131

00:04:39,910 --> 00:04:41,838

to consider the growth habit of all of




132

00:04:42,038 --> 00:04:43,850

the plants because like with the lemon




133

00:04:44,050 --> 00:04:45,559

curl like I said it did really well and




134

00:04:45,759 --> 00:04:47,569

it did but you couldn't see it very well




135

00:04:47,769 --> 00:04:49,639

because all the other plants were so




136

00:04:49,839 --> 00:04:51,170

vigorous they were kind of growing over




137

00:04:51,370 --> 00:04:52,670

the top of it and if you came over and




138

00:04:52,870 --> 00:04:54,199

kind of spread those part plants apart




139

00:04:54,399 --> 00:04:55,790

you could see the lemon Coral they're




140

00:04:55,990 --> 00:04:58,309

just shining and looking beautiful but




141

00:04:58,509 --> 00:04:59,660

it's that's something to think about all




142

00:04:59,860 --> 00:05:01,100

of these plants kind of have the same




143

00:05:01,300 --> 00:05:02,959

vigor so I think they'll work really




144

00:05:03,158 --> 00:05:05,300

well together and so you'll be able to




145

00:05:05,500 --> 00:05:06,980

actually see our foliage accent this




146

00:05:07,180 --> 00:05:08,930

year okay so I think we're gonna set up




147

00:05:09,129 --> 00:05:10,730

a camera and just get a time-lapse of me




148

00:05:10,930 --> 00:05:12,319

planting the rest of these it's gonna




149

00:05:12,519 --> 00:05:13,939

look a lot faster than it happens in




150

00:05:14,139 --> 00:05:15,100

real life here we go




151

00:05:15,300 --> 00:05:42,399

[Music]




152

00:05:42,598 --> 00:05:45,129

oh my gosh you guys it turned out so




153

00:05:45,329 --> 00:05:46,989

pretty I mean if you would have told me




154

00:05:47,189 --> 00:05:48,639

even two years ago that I would be




155

00:05:48,838 --> 00:05:51,338

planting up 40 hay racks at my own house




156

00:05:51,538 --> 00:05:53,079

I would not have believed you




157

00:05:53,278 --> 00:05:55,149

this is just gonna be such a beautiful




158

00:05:55,348 --> 00:05:57,819

show and I think it could be scaled to




159

00:05:58,019 --> 00:06:00,009

any size whether you're doing one pot or




160

00:06:00,209 --> 00:06:03,338

one hay rack or ten or 40 or 100 you




161

00:06:03,538 --> 00:06:05,228

could kind of take these same planting




162

00:06:05,428 --> 00:06:07,209

principles and get the same results I




163

00:06:07,408 --> 00:06:09,028

think that this looks way more




164

00:06:09,228 --> 00:06:11,259

appropriately planted than it did last




165

00:06:11,459 --> 00:06:13,569

year to be completely honest I think




166

00:06:13,769 --> 00:06:15,759

that the plants will be happier they




167

00:06:15,959 --> 00:06:18,040

won't be in such hard competition with




168

00:06:18,240 --> 00:06:19,809

each other so that they'll be able to




169

00:06:20,009 --> 00:06:21,819

flourish a little bit more and the last




170

00:06:22,019 --> 00:06:23,528

thing that we're gonna do today is we're




171

00:06:23,728 --> 00:06:25,028

gonna plant up these large estate




172

00:06:25,228 --> 00:06:27,278

planters right here with some other fun




173

00:06:27,478 --> 00:06:29,519

stuff so vertigo Pennisetum you guys




174

00:06:29,718 --> 00:06:32,949

this is an amazing grass they grow so




175

00:06:33,149 --> 00:06:35,649

big in fact let me see four to four to




176

00:06:35,848 --> 00:06:38,230

eight feet so anywhere from four to




177

00:06:38,430 --> 00:06:39,639

eight feet and I think that that depends




178

00:06:39,838 --> 00:06:41,199

on how much Sun it's getting and how




179

00:06:41,399 --> 00:06:43,359

much water it gets as well I think it'll




180

00:06:43,559 --> 00:06:45,879

get bigger with more of those two things




181

00:06:46,079 --> 00:06:48,338

I planted these in several spots last




182

00:06:48,538 --> 00:06:50,139

year and they just they were a




183

00:06:50,338 --> 00:06:52,359

spectacular grass so I decided I wanted




184

00:06:52,559 --> 00:06:54,069

to do it in these planters up here and




185

00:06:54,269 --> 00:06:55,718

then to break it up because it is a




186

00:06:55,918 --> 00:06:57,669

darker colored grass and the blades do




187

00:06:57,869 --> 00:07:00,009

get quite large as the plant grows it's




188

00:07:00,209 --> 00:07:02,049

got a really strappy appearance but I




189

00:07:02,249 --> 00:07:03,759

wanted to break up the dark grass with




190

00:07:03,959 --> 00:07:05,410

the dark pot with some really pretty fun




191

00:07:05,610 --> 00:07:07,540

color underneath and I'm also going for




192

00:07:07,740 --> 00:07:09,160

the same thing I'm using way fewer




193

00:07:09,360 --> 00:07:11,859

plants in here six supertunia Vista




194

00:07:12,059 --> 00:07:13,959

bubble gum just spaced as evenly as I




195

00:07:14,158 --> 00:07:14,468

could




196

00:07:14,668 --> 00:07:16,509

around the outer part and then this one




197

00:07:16,709 --> 00:07:18,669

is exciting so I think this one's new




198

00:07:18,869 --> 00:07:20,109

this year it's called Diamond Mountain




199

00:07:20,309 --> 00:07:22,389

euphorbia you might recognize the name




200

00:07:22,588 --> 00:07:25,179

Diamond Frost which is very similar but




201

00:07:25,379 --> 00:07:26,949

Diamond Frost is more of an accent plant




202

00:07:27,149 --> 00:07:29,499

it kind of grows and just like it's more




203

00:07:29,699 --> 00:07:31,809

of a wispy appearance this one grows 2




204

00:07:32,009 --> 00:07:35,290

to 3 feet tall and like 18 inch spread




205

00:07:35,490 --> 00:07:37,088

on them so I think it's gonna be a




206

00:07:37,288 --> 00:07:39,459

gorgeous stair-step effect will have the




207

00:07:39,658 --> 00:07:41,468

huge grass they're really pretty just




208

00:07:41,668 --> 00:07:44,499

kind of block of white and then the pink




209

00:07:44,699 --> 00:07:47,230

kind of Spiller supertunia down below so




210

00:07:47,430 --> 00:07:48,489

we've already filled these up with soil




211

00:07:48,689 --> 00:07:50,980

as well and then I put the slow release




212

00:07:51,180 --> 00:07:53,528

fertilizer in so I am ready just to pop




213

00:07:53,728 --> 00:07:55,119

these all in and then we can get it




214

00:07:55,319 --> 00:07:56,340

overall look and




215

00:07:56,540 --> 00:07:59,730

we haven't shown yet is that there is




216

00:07:59,930 --> 00:08:01,980

kind of a repeat on the other side here




217

00:08:02,180 --> 00:08:04,139

we have the same container on this side




218

00:08:04,339 --> 00:08:05,910

of the opening and then we had room for




219

00:08:06,110 --> 00:08:08,340

one hay rack on this side and I thought




220

00:08:08,540 --> 00:08:09,750

it was important even though it's a




221

00:08:09,949 --> 00:08:11,670

little short section offense to kind of




222

00:08:11,870 --> 00:08:13,920

mirror what we had going on so it looked




223

00:08:14,120 --> 00:08:16,259

like a cohesive idea so I think what I'm




224

00:08:16,459 --> 00:08:17,639

gonna do is I'll just start right here




225

00:08:17,839 --> 00:08:20,799

and I'll get this one planted




226

00:08:22,160 --> 00:08:33,759

[Music]




227

00:08:33,960 --> 00:08:35,649

so there you have it they are all




228

00:08:35,849 --> 00:08:37,359

planted up for the season and I'm just




229

00:08:37,559 --> 00:08:39,759

so thrilled to see color I think it's




230

00:08:39,960 --> 00:08:42,129

gonna be just such a gorgeous show we




231

00:08:42,330 --> 00:08:43,659

did turn the water on just to test




232

00:08:43,860 --> 00:08:46,359

everything so you can see right here I




233

00:08:46,559 --> 00:08:48,549

have got an 8 to gallon per hour




234

00:08:48,750 --> 00:08:50,589

emitters dispersed fairly evenly




235

00:08:50,789 --> 00:08:51,939

throughout each one of these large




236

00:08:52,139 --> 00:08:54,129

containers and then on the hay racks




237

00:08:54,330 --> 00:08:56,229

here you can see kind of how they're




238

00:08:56,429 --> 00:08:57,819

running and see that water just coming




239

00:08:58,019 --> 00:09:00,698

out really nicely and we watch them




240

00:09:00,899 --> 00:09:02,679

pretty closely throughout the first




241

00:09:02,879 --> 00:09:04,179

atleast day or two that we're running




242

00:09:04,379 --> 00:09:05,349

the drips to make sure we don't have any




243

00:09:05,549 --> 00:09:08,319

leaks or any you know any problems any




244

00:09:08,519 --> 00:09:10,089

plugged in ITER's from the previous year




245

00:09:10,289 --> 00:09:12,429

because we leave this out all winter we




246

00:09:12,629 --> 00:09:13,839

don't have to put the drip system away




247

00:09:14,039 --> 00:09:16,328

because there's no water left in it all




248

00:09:16,528 --> 00:09:18,279

the water comes out of these right here




249

00:09:18,480 --> 00:09:20,409

so we just kind of look at them closely




250

00:09:20,610 --> 00:09:21,879

to make sure that nothing's happened




251

00:09:22,080 --> 00:09:24,399

over the course of a winter so anyway I




252

00:09:24,600 --> 00:09:26,409

hope that these type of videos are




253

00:09:26,610 --> 00:09:28,059

helpful to you guys just to see what




254

00:09:28,259 --> 00:09:29,679

containers like this look like in the




255

00:09:29,879 --> 00:09:31,419

beginning while I think it looks




256

00:09:31,620 --> 00:09:34,029

absolutely beautiful I cannot wait to




257

00:09:34,230 --> 00:09:35,500

show you what they look like even a




258

00:09:35,700 --> 00:09:38,109

month or two from now so stay tuned for




259

00:09:38,309 --> 00:09:39,399

those videos we'll be doing lots of




260

00:09:39,600 --> 00:09:41,199

updates throughout the season thank you




261

00:09:41,399 --> 00:09:42,609

guys so much for watching and we will




262

00:09:42,809 --> 00:09:44,159

see you in the next video bye

Transcript:
 
1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,570

hey guys good morning I'm getting ready




2

00:00:01,770 --> 00:00:03,099

to plant some more hydrangeas in my




3

00:00:03,299 --> 00:00:04,929

garden today you might recognize this




4

00:00:05,129 --> 00:00:07,000

flowerbed I've planted pretty much




5

00:00:07,200 --> 00:00:08,859

annuals in this spot for the last couple




6

00:00:09,058 --> 00:00:10,540

of years and it's been really fun to




7

00:00:10,740 --> 00:00:12,430

experiment with some color and texture




8

00:00:12,630 --> 00:00:14,470

but I was ready for something a little




9

00:00:14,669 --> 00:00:16,329

bit more permanent so these are called




10

00:00:16,528 --> 00:00:18,609

fire light hydrangeas they're a type of




11

00:00:18,809 --> 00:00:21,220

paniculata which paniculata s-- as a




12

00:00:21,420 --> 00:00:23,400

whole are really easy maintenance




13

00:00:23,600 --> 00:00:25,780

hydrangeas they're really winter hardy




14

00:00:25,980 --> 00:00:27,249

like I think this is a zone three




15

00:00:27,449 --> 00:00:29,769

through eight so I mean it can take




16

00:00:29,969 --> 00:00:31,659

winter temperatures really low and




17

00:00:31,859 --> 00:00:33,849

paniculata SAR the most sun tolerant




18

00:00:34,049 --> 00:00:36,759

hydrangea and it gets very hot and dry




19

00:00:36,960 --> 00:00:39,128

here in Eastern Oregon and the Sun is




20

00:00:39,329 --> 00:00:41,919

very intense but paniculata us handle it




21

00:00:42,119 --> 00:00:43,869

very well you might be familiar with the




22

00:00:44,070 --> 00:00:45,518

limelight hydrangea super popular




23

00:00:45,719 --> 00:00:48,070

beautiful hydrangea I have some planted




24

00:00:48,270 --> 00:00:50,140

in another area of my garden but the




25

00:00:50,340 --> 00:00:51,518

thing about fire light is that they




26

00:00:51,719 --> 00:00:53,739

bloom a lot earlier in the season than




27

00:00:53,939 --> 00:00:55,869

the limelight so if you live in an area




28

00:00:56,070 --> 00:00:58,119

with more mild temperatures like cooler




29

00:00:58,320 --> 00:01:00,338

nights cooler summers this one will




30

00:01:00,539 --> 00:01:02,169

bloom a lot earlier for you so you can




31

00:01:02,369 --> 00:01:04,329

enjoy it throughout the season and then




32

00:01:04,530 --> 00:01:06,369

it starts coloring up like the blooms




33

00:01:06,569 --> 00:01:08,019

start changing so it comes out with




34

00:01:08,219 --> 00:01:09,488

creamy white blooms in the very




35

00:01:09,688 --> 00:01:11,500

beginning and then as soon as the




36

00:01:11,700 --> 00:01:12,730

nighttime temperatures start to drop




37

00:01:12,930 --> 00:01:14,738

even a little bit it triggers the color




38

00:01:14,938 --> 00:01:16,808

change in the blooms and they really




39

00:01:17,009 --> 00:01:19,238

quickly turn into a like vivid like




40

00:01:19,438 --> 00:01:21,969

reddish pink it's very beautiful show so




41

00:01:22,170 --> 00:01:24,609

I'm really excited to see what this




42

00:01:24,810 --> 00:01:26,590

hedge looks like now they do grow quite




43

00:01:26,790 --> 00:01:28,299

large so they grow six to eight feet




44

00:01:28,500 --> 00:01:29,799

tall and wide now that's if you just




45

00:01:30,000 --> 00:01:30,909

kind of let them do their thing




46

00:01:31,109 --> 00:01:32,918

you might be thinking I'm crazy cuz this




47

00:01:33,118 --> 00:01:36,009

is only about four feet wide or so we




48

00:01:36,209 --> 00:01:37,959

are planning on extending these




49

00:01:38,159 --> 00:01:39,549

flowerbeds quite far




50

00:01:39,750 --> 00:01:42,009

maybe next year so I know that this is




51

00:01:42,209 --> 00:01:43,719

going to be my background kind of the




52

00:01:43,920 --> 00:01:46,689

backdrop hedge and you can size control




53

00:01:46,890 --> 00:01:48,159

them a little bit that's the other thing




54

00:01:48,359 --> 00:01:49,840

about having a hydrangea that blooms on




55

00:01:50,040 --> 00:01:52,299

new wood you can go in in early spring




56

00:01:52,500 --> 00:01:53,980

when they just start to bud up and you




57

00:01:54,180 --> 00:01:56,140

can cut them back and it's actually good




58

00:01:56,340 --> 00:01:57,518

for the plant it keeps them really




59

00:01:57,718 --> 00:02:00,789

strong but fire light stems are really




60

00:02:00,989 --> 00:02:02,590

strong just on their own even stronger




61

00:02:02,790 --> 00:02:04,299

than the lime lights so now I want to




62

00:02:04,500 --> 00:02:06,579

get all of these in the ground I am




63

00:02:06,780 --> 00:02:08,080

going to be using a little bit of this




64

00:02:08,280 --> 00:02:10,000

bio tone starter fertilizer in each of




65

00:02:10,199 --> 00:02:11,590

the holes but no compost nothing else




66

00:02:11,789 --> 00:02:12,520

and




67

00:02:12,719 --> 00:02:13,660

then I do have to run some new




68

00:02:13,860 --> 00:02:15,760

irrigation this did have drip lines in




69

00:02:15,960 --> 00:02:17,740

it but they were kind of old and all the




70

00:02:17,939 --> 00:02:19,090

emitters were really caked with hard




71

00:02:19,289 --> 00:02:21,310

water so we'll run a new water line and




72

00:02:21,509 --> 00:02:22,570

then I'm going to be putting probably




73

00:02:22,770 --> 00:02:25,180

two two gallon per hour emitters on each




74

00:02:25,379 --> 00:02:27,700

one of these hydrangea root balls so I




75

00:02:27,900 --> 00:02:28,930

can make sure to keep them very well




76

00:02:29,129 --> 00:02:29,860

hydrated




77

00:02:30,060 --> 00:03:10,480

[Music]




78

00:03:10,680 --> 00:03:12,710

so we've got them all in the ground and




79

00:03:12,909 --> 00:03:14,630

I ran all the irrigation so like I said




80

00:03:14,830 --> 00:03:16,789

I did two to gallon per hour emitters to




81

00:03:16,989 --> 00:03:19,189

each root ball and I find that's what




82

00:03:19,389 --> 00:03:21,140

they need here in our hot dry climate in




83

00:03:21,340 --> 00:03:23,539

fact we run our drips every single day




84

00:03:23,739 --> 00:03:25,460

for about an hour when the temperatures




85

00:03:25,659 --> 00:03:27,469

go above a hundred and that's what keeps




86

00:03:27,669 --> 00:03:29,240

them looking really really nice and




87

00:03:29,439 --> 00:03:31,189

you'll have to adjust that depending on




88

00:03:31,389 --> 00:03:33,890

your weather your region and kind of you




89

00:03:34,090 --> 00:03:35,570

know what they typically like and you




90

00:03:35,770 --> 00:03:36,920

can ask somebody at your local garden




91

00:03:37,120 --> 00:03:38,090

center and kind of get their




92

00:03:38,289 --> 00:03:40,130

recommendation for that if you notice




93

00:03:40,330 --> 00:03:42,020

your hydrangea blooms turning brown




94

00:03:42,219 --> 00:03:44,150

later in the summer rather than turning




95

00:03:44,349 --> 00:03:46,130

the color they're supposed to that means




96

00:03:46,330 --> 00:03:47,660

your hydrangea is not getting enough




97

00:03:47,860 --> 00:03:48,950

water so that's just something to be




98

00:03:49,150 --> 00:03:51,140

mindful of and I think this is going to




99

00:03:51,340 --> 00:03:53,390

be a glorious hedge of hydrangeas but I




100

00:03:53,590 --> 00:03:55,310

also feel that the fire light hydrogen




101

00:03:55,509 --> 00:03:57,349

would be a gorgeous specimen plant so if




102

00:03:57,549 --> 00:03:59,210

you don't have you know this much space




103

00:03:59,409 --> 00:04:01,219

to fill or you just want to have one to




104

00:04:01,419 --> 00:04:03,800

enjoy it's you know a big enough shrub




105

00:04:04,000 --> 00:04:06,110

that it'll look gorgeous but I do have a




106

00:04:06,310 --> 00:04:08,210

chart that's super handy that shows a




107

00:04:08,409 --> 00:04:09,439

whole bunch of different paniculata




108

00:04:09,639 --> 00:04:11,599

hydrangeas and what time of the year




109

00:04:11,799 --> 00:04:13,700

they start to bloom so you can see here




110

00:04:13,900 --> 00:04:15,829

in the very early category there's quick




111

00:04:16,029 --> 00:04:17,629

fire little quick fire bow bow and fire




112

00:04:17,829 --> 00:04:18,829

light and it shows kind of their




113

00:04:19,029 --> 00:04:20,658

different growth habits which is super




114

00:04:20,858 --> 00:04:22,730

helpful and then you've got your early




115

00:04:22,930 --> 00:04:24,650

category which is pinky-winky and then




116

00:04:24,850 --> 00:04:26,750

midseason bloomers are your Zinfandel




117

00:04:26,949 --> 00:04:29,028

little lime and lime light so that's it




118

00:04:29,228 --> 00:04:30,650

you guys hope you enjoyed seeing this




119

00:04:30,850 --> 00:04:32,689

henge come in and I hope you are going




120

00:04:32,889 --> 00:04:34,338

to enjoy the progress shots that will




121

00:04:34,538 --> 00:04:36,139

give you throughout the season because I




122

00:04:36,339 --> 00:04:38,210

think that is when it's gonna get really




123

00:04:38,410 --> 00:04:40,100

amazing thanks guys so much for watching

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,570

hey guys good morning I'm getting ready




2

00:00:01,770 --> 00:00:03,099

to plant some more hydrangeas in my




3

00:00:03,299 --> 00:00:04,929

garden today you might recognize this




4

00:00:05,129 --> 00:00:07,000

flowerbed I've planted pretty much




5

00:00:07,200 --> 00:00:08,859

annuals in this spot for the last couple




6

00:00:09,058 --> 00:00:10,540

of years and it's been really fun to




7

00:00:10,740 --> 00:00:12,430

experiment with some color and texture




8

00:00:12,630 --> 00:00:14,470

but I was ready for something a little




9

00:00:14,669 --> 00:00:16,329

bit more permanent so these are called




10

00:00:16,528 --> 00:00:18,609

fire light hydrangeas they're a type of




11

00:00:18,809 --> 00:00:21,220

paniculata which paniculata s-- as a




12

00:00:21,420 --> 00:00:23,400

whole are really easy maintenance




13

00:00:23,600 --> 00:00:25,780

hydrangeas they're really winter hardy




14

00:00:25,980 --> 00:00:27,249

like I think this is a zone three




15

00:00:27,449 --> 00:00:29,769

through eight so I mean it can take




16

00:00:29,969 --> 00:00:31,659

winter temperatures really low and




17

00:00:31,859 --> 00:00:33,849

paniculata SAR the most sun tolerant




18

00:00:34,049 --> 00:00:36,759

hydrangea and it gets very hot and dry




19

00:00:36,960 --> 00:00:39,128

here in Eastern Oregon and the Sun is




20

00:00:39,329 --> 00:00:41,919

very intense but paniculata us handle it




21

00:00:42,119 --> 00:00:43,869

very well you might be familiar with the




22

00:00:44,070 --> 00:00:45,518

limelight hydrangea super popular




23

00:00:45,719 --> 00:00:48,070

beautiful hydrangea I have some planted




24

00:00:48,270 --> 00:00:50,140

in another area of my garden but the




25

00:00:50,340 --> 00:00:51,518

thing about fire light is that they




26

00:00:51,719 --> 00:00:53,739

bloom a lot earlier in the season than




27

00:00:53,939 --> 00:00:55,869

the limelight so if you live in an area




28

00:00:56,070 --> 00:00:58,119

with more mild temperatures like cooler




29

00:00:58,320 --> 00:01:00,338

nights cooler summers this one will




30

00:01:00,539 --> 00:01:02,169

bloom a lot earlier for you so you can




31

00:01:02,369 --> 00:01:04,329

enjoy it throughout the season and then




32

00:01:04,530 --> 00:01:06,369

it starts coloring up like the blooms




33

00:01:06,569 --> 00:01:08,019

start changing so it comes out with




34

00:01:08,219 --> 00:01:09,488

creamy white blooms in the very




35

00:01:09,688 --> 00:01:11,500

beginning and then as soon as the




36

00:01:11,700 --> 00:01:12,730

nighttime temperatures start to drop




37

00:01:12,930 --> 00:01:14,738

even a little bit it triggers the color




38

00:01:14,938 --> 00:01:16,808

change in the blooms and they really




39

00:01:17,009 --> 00:01:19,238

quickly turn into a like vivid like




40

00:01:19,438 --> 00:01:21,969

reddish pink it's very beautiful show so




41

00:01:22,170 --> 00:01:24,609

I'm really excited to see what this




42

00:01:24,810 --> 00:01:26,590

hedge looks like now they do grow quite




43

00:01:26,790 --> 00:01:28,299

large so they grow six to eight feet




44

00:01:28,500 --> 00:01:29,799

tall and wide now that's if you just




45

00:01:30,000 --> 00:01:30,909

kind of let them do their thing




46

00:01:31,109 --> 00:01:32,918

you might be thinking I'm crazy cuz this




47

00:01:33,118 --> 00:01:36,009

is only about four feet wide or so we




48

00:01:36,209 --> 00:01:37,959

are planning on extending these




49

00:01:38,159 --> 00:01:39,549

flowerbeds quite far




50

00:01:39,750 --> 00:01:42,009

maybe next year so I know that this is




51

00:01:42,209 --> 00:01:43,719

going to be my background kind of the




52

00:01:43,920 --> 00:01:46,689

backdrop hedge and you can size control




53

00:01:46,890 --> 00:01:48,159

them a little bit that's the other thing




54

00:01:48,359 --> 00:01:49,840

about having a hydrangea that blooms on




55

00:01:50,040 --> 00:01:52,299

new wood you can go in in early spring




56

00:01:52,500 --> 00:01:53,980

when they just start to bud up and you




57

00:01:54,180 --> 00:01:56,140

can cut them back and it's actually good




58

00:01:56,340 --> 00:01:57,518

for the plant it keeps them really




59

00:01:57,718 --> 00:02:00,789

strong but fire light stems are really




60

00:02:00,989 --> 00:02:02,590

strong just on their own even stronger




61

00:02:02,790 --> 00:02:04,299

than the lime lights so now I want to




62

00:02:04,500 --> 00:02:06,579

get all of these in the ground I am




63

00:02:06,780 --> 00:02:08,080

going to be using a little bit of this




64

00:02:08,280 --> 00:02:10,000

bio tone starter fertilizer in each of




65

00:02:10,199 --> 00:02:11,590

the holes but no compost nothing else




66

00:02:11,789 --> 00:02:12,520

and




67

00:02:12,719 --> 00:02:13,660

then I do have to run some new




68

00:02:13,860 --> 00:02:15,760

irrigation this did have drip lines in




69

00:02:15,960 --> 00:02:17,740

it but they were kind of old and all the




70

00:02:17,939 --> 00:02:19,090

emitters were really caked with hard




71

00:02:19,289 --> 00:02:21,310

water so we'll run a new water line and




72

00:02:21,509 --> 00:02:22,570

then I'm going to be putting probably




73

00:02:22,770 --> 00:02:25,180

two two gallon per hour emitters on each




74

00:02:25,379 --> 00:02:27,700

one of these hydrangea root balls so I




75

00:02:27,900 --> 00:02:28,930

can make sure to keep them very well




76

00:02:29,129 --> 00:02:29,860

hydrated




77

00:02:30,060 --> 00:03:10,480

[Music]




78

00:03:10,680 --> 00:03:12,710

so we've got them all in the ground and




79

00:03:12,909 --> 00:03:14,630

I ran all the irrigation so like I said




80

00:03:14,830 --> 00:03:16,789

I did two to gallon per hour emitters to




81

00:03:16,989 --> 00:03:19,189

each root ball and I find that's what




82

00:03:19,389 --> 00:03:21,140

they need here in our hot dry climate in




83

00:03:21,340 --> 00:03:23,539

them looking really really nice and




87

00:03:29,439 --> 00:03:31,189

1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,209

hey guys how's it going we're out of my




2

00:00:01,409 --> 00:00:02,738

parents house this morning working on a




3

00:00:02,939 --> 00:00:04,299

really fun project that I've been




4

00:00:04,500 --> 00:00:06,908

looking forward to for months and you




5

00:00:07,108 --> 00:00:08,830

guys might think that I do big projects




6

00:00:09,029 --> 00:00:12,550

check this out they just had 12 huge




7

00:00:12,750 --> 00:00:15,490

containers built and installed along




8

00:00:15,689 --> 00:00:17,230

their driveway in fact this has been a




9

00:00:17,429 --> 00:00:18,940

huge project this spring it's a really




10

00:00:19,140 --> 00:00:20,650

really fun one because all of my




11

00:00:20,850 --> 00:00:22,659

childhood years there was a little




12

00:00:22,859 --> 00:00:24,249

skinny driveway in fact you can see the




13

00:00:24,449 --> 00:00:25,269

wheel mark here




14

00:00:25,469 --> 00:00:27,399

it was very skinny he went to about here




15

00:00:27,599 --> 00:00:29,919

and then all the rest of this space was




16

00:00:30,118 --> 00:00:32,858

all ditch so there was just a big canal




17

00:00:33,058 --> 00:00:35,079

full of water right here so they had it




18

00:00:35,280 --> 00:00:37,390

piped and covered this spring and then




19

00:00:37,590 --> 00:00:39,820

lined with redpoint maples I think there




20

00:00:40,020 --> 00:00:42,669

are 14 redpoint maples in total this is




21

00:00:42,869 --> 00:00:44,049

the same type of maple that we used




22

00:00:44,250 --> 00:00:46,448

alongside our driveway and it's gonna be




23

00:00:46,649 --> 00:00:49,000

gorgeous because a beautiful red fall




24

00:00:49,200 --> 00:00:51,338

color and then of course the planters




25

00:00:51,539 --> 00:00:53,858

they make a huge statement and they're




26

00:00:54,058 --> 00:00:55,838

kind of modeled after the box planters




27

00:00:56,039 --> 00:00:57,669

you see in French garden he's kind of




28

00:00:57,869 --> 00:00:59,890

like Versailles they're a little bit




29

00:01:00,090 --> 00:01:01,358

more rustic though which i think is




30

00:01:01,558 --> 00:01:03,399

perfect because it goes with their




31

00:01:03,600 --> 00:01:05,829

country style home the other really fun




32

00:01:06,030 --> 00:01:08,109

thing are the plants that I get to use




33

00:01:08,310 --> 00:01:10,599

in this project we're not going to vary




34

00:01:10,799 --> 00:01:12,549

the type of plants I use very much




35

00:01:12,750 --> 00:01:14,738

because we get to try something that's




36

00:01:14,938 --> 00:01:17,259

brand new it's not even out yet because




37

00:01:17,459 --> 00:01:19,028

we work with proven winners on occasion




38

00:01:19,228 --> 00:01:21,609

we get to try out new plants and this is




39

00:01:21,810 --> 00:01:23,679

a new one next year called supertunia




40

00:01:23,879 --> 00:01:25,599

vista snowdrift and if you guys have




41

00:01:25,799 --> 00:01:28,000

ever grown any supertunia in the Vista




42

00:01:28,200 --> 00:01:29,469

line you will know what I'm talking




43

00:01:29,670 --> 00:01:31,209

about like supertunia vista bubblegum




44

00:01:31,409 --> 00:01:34,058

vista fuchsia vista silver berry they




45

00:01:34,259 --> 00:01:36,730

grow huge they are really really




46

00:01:36,930 --> 00:01:38,769

vigorous they have huge amount of bloom




47

00:01:38,969 --> 00:01:40,299

count on them all throughout this season




48

00:01:40,500 --> 00:01:41,918

and I think they're one of the best




49

00:01:42,118 --> 00:01:43,808

suited to go either in the landscape or




50

00:01:44,009 --> 00:01:45,308

in containers in fact I'm going to be




51

00:01:45,509 --> 00:01:46,599

putting some of these in the ground at




52

00:01:46,799 --> 00:01:48,308

my house and we'll be able to kind of




53

00:01:48,509 --> 00:01:50,619

see how they do you know in a container




54

00:01:50,819 --> 00:01:52,959

versus the landscape these I was doing a




55

00:01:53,159 --> 00:01:54,609

little reading on them have said that




56

00:01:54,810 --> 00:01:56,378

they can grow up to two feet tall and




57

00:01:56,578 --> 00:01:57,488

four feet wide




58

00:01:57,688 --> 00:02:00,668

one one supertunia vista snowdrift




59

00:02:00,868 --> 00:02:03,399

that's like a shrub which is amazing so




60

00:02:03,599 --> 00:02:05,619

I'm going to be putting eight of these




61

00:02:05,819 --> 00:02:07,000

in each of these containers which is




62

00:02:07,200 --> 00:02:08,439

probably a little much I could probably




63

00:02:08,639 --> 00:02:10,029

get away with just doing one on each




64

00:02:10,229 --> 00:02:12,610

side but there is an event happening in




65

00:02:12,810 --> 00:02:13,540

about a month at my




66

00:02:13,740 --> 00:02:14,710

parents house and we want to make sure




67

00:02:14,909 --> 00:02:16,210

that they're really full and they look




68

00:02:16,409 --> 00:02:18,040

really good for that so we're gonna use




69

00:02:18,240 --> 00:02:20,200

that primarily around the outside and




70

00:02:20,400 --> 00:02:22,360

then in the middle we're using a purple




71

00:02:22,560 --> 00:02:23,770

fountain grass and I think it's just




72

00:02:23,969 --> 00:02:25,689

gonna be a very striking contrast I




73

00:02:25,889 --> 00:02:27,250

think the white is gonna look really




74

00:02:27,449 --> 00:02:29,800

good up against this black rail fence




75

00:02:30,000 --> 00:02:31,719

right here this is the same color of




76

00:02:31,919 --> 00:02:33,130

stain that we use on our vegetable




77

00:02:33,330 --> 00:02:35,410

garden so it looks very pretty I think




78

00:02:35,610 --> 00:02:37,719

all the way down the fence is new it




79

00:02:37,919 --> 00:02:39,580

just looks so sharp there's a lot more




80

00:02:39,780 --> 00:02:41,320

room for parking and just a lot more




81

00:02:41,520 --> 00:02:42,700

breathing space out here




82

00:02:42,900 --> 00:02:45,070

so we've already one run drip to these




83

00:02:45,270 --> 00:02:46,689

containers and I wanted to talk on that




84

00:02:46,889 --> 00:02:48,730

a little bit because we recently showed




85

00:02:48,930 --> 00:02:51,700

you how we hooked our drip system up to




86

00:02:51,900 --> 00:02:54,219

our irrigation system that it's like in




87

00:02:54,419 --> 00:02:56,020

the ground and I want to show you this




88

00:02:56,219 --> 00:02:58,630

is hooked into a hose bib so there's a




89

00:02:58,830 --> 00:03:00,760

half inch black poly tube in fact you




90

00:03:00,960 --> 00:03:03,700

can see it right here they need to bring




91

00:03:03,900 --> 00:03:05,350

in a little more gravel to cover but




92

00:03:05,550 --> 00:03:07,060

there's a tube that runs the entire




93

00:03:07,259 --> 00:03:10,510

distance the entire run and then they




94

00:03:10,710 --> 00:03:12,880

tapped in with little couplers right




95

00:03:13,080 --> 00:03:15,700

here and there's a quarter inch solid




96

00:03:15,900 --> 00:03:18,310

black tube that runs up the side and it




97

00:03:18,509 --> 00:03:20,590

comes into the container right here you




98

00:03:20,789 --> 00:03:23,950

move my plants and then we've got five




99

00:03:24,150 --> 00:03:25,360

drippers and Erin and I worked on this




100

00:03:25,560 --> 00:03:26,980

little network of drippers this morning




101

00:03:27,180 --> 00:03:28,450

what we're planning on doing is having




102

00:03:28,650 --> 00:03:31,630

one one gallon per hour emitter in




103

00:03:31,830 --> 00:03:33,820

between each set of petunias kind of




104

00:03:34,020 --> 00:03:36,580

like this so there'll be two petunias




105

00:03:36,780 --> 00:03:39,460

two two two and then this one will point




106

00:03:39,659 --> 00:03:41,439

right to the root ball of the grass and




107

00:03:41,639 --> 00:03:42,880

we do have little stakes that will help




108

00:03:43,080 --> 00:03:44,439

once I get everything planted kind of




109

00:03:44,639 --> 00:03:46,960

just tack everything into place so let's




110

00:03:47,159 --> 00:03:48,580

run to the very far end because that's




111

00:03:48,780 --> 00:03:49,990

where it attaches to the hose and I'll




112

00:03:50,189 --> 00:03:52,150

show you how that looks so we're at the




113

00:03:52,349 --> 00:03:54,250

opposite end this is the last container




114

00:03:54,449 --> 00:03:56,170

and then in the corner is where they're




115

00:03:56,370 --> 00:03:58,390

attached to water in fact if you look




116

00:03:58,590 --> 00:04:00,100

over the fence right here you can see




117

00:04:00,300 --> 00:04:02,680

the ditch it's still open on this end we




118

00:04:02,879 --> 00:04:04,450

used to swim in that when we were little




119

00:04:04,650 --> 00:04:06,460

kids but now all the water goes to a




120

00:04:06,659 --> 00:04:08,230

great big pipe right underneath this




121

00:04:08,430 --> 00:04:12,040

hole Elaine so this hose bib right here




122

00:04:12,240 --> 00:04:14,500

is where all the water comes from for




123

00:04:14,699 --> 00:04:16,270

both the Maples and the containers




124

00:04:16,470 --> 00:04:17,770

there's a splitter right here which you




125

00:04:17,970 --> 00:04:19,538

can either use that or you can hook your




126

00:04:19,738 --> 00:04:21,699

timer right into your hose you don't




127

00:04:21,899 --> 00:04:23,050

even have to use a timer if you don't




128

00:04:23,250 --> 00:04:24,939

want to you can come out every day and




129

00:04:25,139 --> 00:04:26,410

turn the hose on and turn it off but the




130

00:04:26,610 --> 00:04:27,160

timer makes




131

00:04:27,360 --> 00:04:29,230

super-nice to where you don't have to do




132

00:04:29,430 --> 00:04:31,088

that this will make everything automatic




133

00:04:31,288 --> 00:04:33,249

and then there's a couple of parts here




134

00:04:33,449 --> 00:04:36,459

that cook onto your timer and then you




135

00:04:36,658 --> 00:04:37,838

can put your drip tubing right up into




136

00:04:38,038 --> 00:04:39,939

those parts one of these runs to the the




137

00:04:40,139 --> 00:04:41,949

red point maples and one runs to the




138

00:04:42,149 --> 00:04:44,139

containers at the amount of time that




139

00:04:44,339 --> 00:04:46,449

you run your containers it's kind of




140

00:04:46,649 --> 00:04:47,949

subjective to the time of year it is




141

00:04:48,149 --> 00:04:49,509

what the weather is like if it's real




142

00:04:49,709 --> 00:04:51,399

windy or not right now they could




143

00:04:51,598 --> 00:04:53,949

probably run these every other day or




144

00:04:54,149 --> 00:04:55,389

every two days to keep them happy




145

00:04:55,589 --> 00:04:57,399

because it's still pretty cool but when




146

00:04:57,598 --> 00:04:58,660

it gets really hot they'll be running




147

00:04:58,860 --> 00:04:59,379

them everyday




148

00:04:59,579 --> 00:05:00,790

so we'll probably start by running them




149

00:05:00,990 --> 00:05:02,439

for thirty minutes just to kind of gauge




150

00:05:02,639 --> 00:05:04,059

how much water comes out and how




151

00:05:04,259 --> 00:05:06,369

saturated the soil is and then we'll go




152

00:05:06,569 --> 00:05:06,939

from there




153

00:05:07,139 --> 00:05:08,480

so now let's start planting




154

00:05:08,680 --> 00:05:55,410

[Music]




155

00:05:57,959 --> 00:06:00,199

you guys I think that these are going to




156

00:06:00,399 --> 00:06:01,790

be absolutely gorgeous and you can




157

00:06:01,990 --> 00:06:03,520

already see them starting to take shape




158

00:06:03,720 --> 00:06:06,889

in purple fountain grass gets huge so




159

00:06:07,089 --> 00:06:08,930

it'll get these huge graceful plumes on




160

00:06:09,129 --> 00:06:11,210

the top and it will fill in beautifully




161

00:06:11,410 --> 00:06:12,949

and then with how this supertunia vistas




162

00:06:13,149 --> 00:06:14,810

snowdrift is supposed to grow I think




163

00:06:15,009 --> 00:06:16,730

we're gonna be in for like a super




164

00:06:16,930 --> 00:06:18,710

dramatic show maybe even all the way to




165

00:06:18,910 --> 00:06:21,800

the crown the kitty loves it and I think




166

00:06:22,000 --> 00:06:24,079

with the general design like if you look




167

00:06:24,279 --> 00:06:25,699

down the way and you see the line of




168

00:06:25,899 --> 00:06:27,680

trees in the line of containers I think




169

00:06:27,879 --> 00:06:30,920

going with just one one arrangement the




170

00:06:31,120 --> 00:06:32,329

same thing in every container will be a




171

00:06:32,529 --> 00:06:35,120

very striking effect and it won't you




172

00:06:35,319 --> 00:06:37,338

know jar your eyes too much and also




173

00:06:37,538 --> 00:06:38,960

just using two different plants instead




174

00:06:39,160 --> 00:06:40,400

of using you know a whole bunch of




175

00:06:40,600 --> 00:06:41,990

different colors in this one container




176

00:06:42,189 --> 00:06:44,449

and the other supertunia vistas that are




177

00:06:44,649 --> 00:06:46,009

available are all in the pink family




178

00:06:46,209 --> 00:06:47,509

which is great for me because I love




179

00:06:47,709 --> 00:06:49,400

pink I love to use those in fact I'm




180

00:06:49,600 --> 00:06:50,540

using a whole bunch of my garden this




181

00:06:50,740 --> 00:06:52,550

year but I was so excited to learn that




182

00:06:52,750 --> 00:06:54,020

there was a new one and that it was




183

00:06:54,220 --> 00:06:56,149

white because I do think I could have a




184

00:06:56,348 --> 00:06:58,430

garden completely full of green like




185

00:06:58,629 --> 00:07:00,468

shades of green foliage with white




186

00:07:00,668 --> 00:07:02,870

blooms and I would be happy with that so




187

00:07:03,069 --> 00:07:05,480

when I planted these I did add in some




188

00:07:05,680 --> 00:07:07,160

of this continuous release plant food




189

00:07:07,360 --> 00:07:09,230

like I do in all my containers I think I




190

00:07:09,430 --> 00:07:11,600

added about between 8 and 10 tablespoons




191

00:07:11,800 --> 00:07:13,910

and just mixed it into about the top




192

00:07:14,110 --> 00:07:16,430

couple inches of soil with plants like




193

00:07:16,629 --> 00:07:18,620

this that are huge huge performers they




194

00:07:18,819 --> 00:07:20,180

are really hungry plants they need a lot




195

00:07:20,379 --> 00:07:22,460

of food to perform the best so I always




196

00:07:22,660 --> 00:07:24,199

start with that and then I'm actually




197

00:07:24,399 --> 00:07:26,540

gonna give my parents a tub of this this




198

00:07:26,740 --> 00:07:27,980

is what I use in my containers on a




199

00:07:28,180 --> 00:07:30,170

weekly basis at home so they'll be




200

00:07:30,370 --> 00:07:31,910

feeding these plants every single week




201

00:07:32,110 --> 00:07:34,399

with a water soluble and that will keep




202

00:07:34,598 --> 00:07:36,588

them very happy and full of bloom so




203

00:07:36,788 --> 00:07:38,600

anyway that is it for this video I was




204

00:07:38,800 --> 00:07:40,278

just so excited to show you this brand




205

00:07:40,478 --> 00:07:41,930

new plant again it's not out this year




206

00:07:42,129 --> 00:07:43,910

this is gonna be brand new next year I'm




207

00:07:44,110 --> 00:07:45,319

so I'm really excited to show you guys




208

00:07:45,519 --> 00:07:47,060

progress updates throughout this season




209

00:07:47,259 --> 00:07:48,680

to see what it looks like because maybe




210

00:07:48,879 --> 00:07:49,850

this is something you'll want to add




211

00:07:50,050 --> 00:07:52,040

into your garden next year so anyway




212

00:07:52,240 --> 00:07:53,028

thank you guys so much for watching




213

00:07:53,228 --> 00:07:54,528

1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,209

hey guys how's it going we're out of my




2

00:00:01,409 --> 00:00:02,738

parents house this morning working on a




3

00:00:02,939 --> 00:00:04,299

really fun project that I've been




4

00:00:04,500 --> 00:00:06,908

looking forward to for months and you




5

00:00:07,108 --> 00:00:08,830

guys might think that I do big projects




6

00:00:09,029 --> 00:00:12,550

check this out they just had 12 huge




7

00:00:12,750 --> 00:00:15,490

containers built and installed along




8

00:00:15,689 --> 00:00:17,230

their driveway in fact this has been a




9

00:00:17,429 --> 00:00:18,940

huge project this spring it's a really




10

00:00:19,140 --> 00:00:20,650

really fun one because all of my




11

00:00:20,850 --> 00:00:22,659

childhood years there was a little




12

00:00:22,859 --> 00:00:24,249

skinny driveway in fact you can see the




13

00:00:24,449 --> 00:00:25,269

wheel mark here




14

00:00:25,469 --> 00:00:27,399

it was very skinny he went to about here




15

00:00:27,599 --> 00:00:29,919

and then all the rest of this space was




16

00:00:30,118 --> 00:00:32,858

all ditch so there was just a big canal




17

00:00:33,058 --> 00:00:35,079

full of water right here so they had it




18

00:00:35,280 --> 00:00:37,390

piped and covered this spring and then




19

00:00:37,590 --> 00:00:39,820

lined with redpoint maples I think there




20

00:00:40,020 --> 00:00:42,669

are 14 redpoint maples in total this is




21

00:00:42,869 --> 00:00:44,049

the same type of maple that we used




22

00:00:44,250 --> 00:00:46,448

alongside our driveway and it's gonna be




23

00:00:46,649 --> 00:00:49,000

gorgeous because a beautiful red fall




24

00:00:49,200 --> 00:00:51,338

color and then of course the planters




25

00:00:51,539 --> 00:00:53,858

they make a huge statement and they're




26

00:00:54,058 --> 00:00:55,838

kind of modeled after the box planters




27

00:00:56,039 --> 00:00:57,669

you see in French garden he's kind of




28

00:00:57,869 --> 00:00:59,890

like Versailles they're a little bit




29

00:01:00,090 --> 00:01:01,358

more rustic though which i think is




30

00:01:01,558 --> 00:01:03,399

perfect because it goes with their




31

00:01:03,600 --> 00:01:05,829

country style home the other really fun




32

00:01:06,030 --> 00:01:08,109

thing are the plants that I get to use




33

00:01:08,310 --> 00:01:10,599

in this project we're not going to vary




34

00:01:10,799 --> 00:01:12,549

the type of plants I use very much




35

00:01:12,750 --> 00:01:14,738

because we get to try something that's




36

00:01:14,938 --> 00:01:17,259

brand new it's not even out yet because




37

00:01:17,459 --> 00:01:19,028

we work with proven winners on occasion




38

00:01:19,228 --> 00:01:21,609

we get to try out new plants and this is




39

00:01:21,810 --> 00:01:23,679

a new one next year called supertunia




40

00:01:23,879 --> 00:01:25,599

vista snowdrift and if you guys have




41

00:01:25,799 --> 00:01:28,000

ever grown any supertunia in the Vista




42

00:01:28,200 --> 00:01:29,469

line you will know what I'm talking




43

00:01:29,670 --> 00:01:31,209

about like supertunia vista bubblegum




44

00:01:31,409 --> 00:01:34,058

vista fuchsia vista silver berry they




45

00:01:34,259 --> 00:01:36,730

grow huge they are really really




46

00:01:36,930 --> 00:01:38,769

vigorous they have huge amount of bloom




47

00:01:38,969 --> 00:01:40,299

count on them all throughout this season




48

00:01:40,500 --> 00:01:41,918

and I think they're one of the best




49

00:01:42,118 --> 00:01:43,808

suited to go either in the landscape or




50

00:01:44,009 --> 00:01:45,308

in containers in fact I'm going to be




51

00:01:45,509 --> 00:01:46,599

putting some of these in the ground at




52

00:01:46,799 --> 00:01:48,308

my house and we'll be able to kind of




53

00:01:48,509 --> 00:01:50,619

see how they do you know in a container




54

00:01:50,819 --> 00:01:52,959

versus the landscape these I was doing a




55

00:01:53,159 --> 00:01:54,609

little reading on them have said that




56

00:01:54,810 --> 00:01:56,378

they can grow up to two feet tall and




57

00:01:56,578 --> 00:01:57,488

four feet wide




58

00:01:57,688 --> 00:02:00,668

one one supertunia vista snowdrift




59

00:02:00,868 --> 00:02:03,399

that's like a shrub which is amazing so




60

00:02:03,599 --> 00:02:05,619

I'm going to be putting eight of these




61

00:02:05,819 --> 00:02:07,000

in each of these containers which is




62

00:02:07,200 --> 00:02:08,439

probably a little much I could probably




63

00:02:08,639 --> 00:02:10,029

get away with just doing one on each




64

00:02:10,229 --> 00:02:12,610

side but there is an event happening in




65

00:02:12,810 --> 00:02:13,540

about a month at my




66

00:02:13,740 --> 00:02:14,710

parents house and we want to make sure




67

00:02:14,909 --> 00:02:16,210

that they're really full and they look




68

00:02:16,409 --> 00:02:18,040

really good for that so we're gonna use




69

00:02:18,240 --> 00:02:20,200

that primarily around the outside and




70

00:02:20,400 --> 00:02:22,360

then in the middle we're using a purple




71

00:02:22,560 --> 00:02:23,770

fountain grass and I think it's just




72

00:02:23,969 --> 00:02:25,689

gonna be a very striking contrast I




73

00:02:25,889 --> 00:02:27,250

think the white is gonna look really




74

00:02:27,449 --> 00:02:29,800

good up against this black rail fence




75

00:02:30,000 --> 00:02:31,719

right here this is the same color of




76

00:02:31,919 --> 00:02:33,130

stain that we use on our vegetable




77

00:02:33,330 --> 00:02:35,410

garden so it looks very pretty I think




78

00:02:35,610 --> 00:02:37,719

all the way down the fence is new it




79

00:02:37,919 --> 00:02:39,580

just looks so sharp there's a lot more




80

00:02:39,780 --> 00:02:41,320

room for parking and just a lot more




81

00:02:41,520 --> 00:02:42,700

breathing space out here




82

00:02:42,900 --> 00:02:45,070

so we've already one run drip to these




83

00:02:45,270 --> 00:02:46,689

containers and I wanted to talk on that




84

00:02:46,889 --> 00:02:48,730

a little bit because we recently showed




85

00:02:48,930 --> 00:02:51,700

you how we hooked our drip system up to




86

00:02:51,900 --> 00:02:54,219

our irrigation system that it's like in




87

00:02:54,419 --> 00:02:56,020

the ground and I want to show you this




88

00:02:56,219 --> 00:02:58,630

is hooked into a hose bib so there's a




89

00:02:58,830 --> 00:03:00,760

half inch black poly tube in fact you




90

00:03:00,960 --> 00:03:03,700

can see it right here they need to bring




91

00:03:03,900 --> 00:03:05,350

in a little more gravel to cover but




92

00:03:05,550 --> 00:03:07,060

there's a tube that runs the entire




93

00:03:07,259 --> 00:03:10,510

distance the entire run and then they




94

00:03:10,710 --> 00:03:12,880

tapped in with little couplers right




95

00:03:13,080 --> 00:03:15,700

here and there's a quarter inch solid




96

00:03:15,900 --> 00:03:18,310

black tube that runs up the side and it




97

00:03:18,509 --> 00:03:20,590

comes into the container right here you




98

00:03:20,789 --> 00:03:23,950

move my plants and then we've got five




99

00:03:24,150 --> 00:03:25,360

drippers and Erin and I worked on this




100

00:03:25,560 --> 00:03:26,980

little network of drippers this morning




101

00:03:27,180 --> 00:03:28,450

what we're planning on doing is having




102

00:03:28,650 --> 00:03:31,630

one one gallon per hour emitter in




103

00:03:31,830 --> 00:03:33,820

between each set of petunias kind of




104

00:03:34,020 --> 00:03:36,580

like this so there'll be two petunias




105

00:03:36,780 --> 00:03:39,460

two two two and then this one will point




106

00:03:39,659 --> 00:03:41,439

right to the root ball of the grass and




107

00:03:41,639 --> 00:03:42,880

we do have little stakes that will help




108

00:03:43,080 --> 00:03:44,439

once I get everything planted kind of




109

00:03:44,639 --> 00:03:46,960

just tack everything into place so let's




110

00:03:47,159 --> 00:03:48,580

run to the very far end because that's




111

00:03:48,780 --> 00:03:49,990

where it attaches to the hose and I'll




112

00:03:50,189 --> 00:03:52,150

show you how that looks so we're at the




113

00:03:52,349 --> 00:03:54,250

opposite end this is the last container




114

00:03:54,449 --> 00:03:56,170

and then in the corner is where they're




115

00:03:56,370 --> 00:03:58,390

attached to water in fact if you look




116

00:03:58,590 --> 00:04:00,100

over the fence right here you can see




117

00:04:00,300 --> 00:04:02,680

the ditch it's still open on this end we




118

00:04:02,879 --> 00:04:04,450

used to swim in that when we were little




119

00:04:04,650 --> 00:04:06,460

kids but now all the water goes to a




120

00:04:06,659 --> 00:04:08,230

great big pipe right underneath this




121

00:04:08,430 --> 00:04:12,040

hole Elaine so this hose bib right here




122

00:04:12,240 --> 00:04:14,500

is where all the water comes from for




123

00:04:14,699 --> 00:04:16,270

both the Maples and the containers




124

00:04:16,470 --> 00:04:17,770

there's a splitter right here which you




125

00:04:17,970 --> 00:04:19,538

can either use that or you can hook your




126

00:04:19,738 --> 00:04:21,699

timer right into your hose you don't




127

00:04:21,899 --> 00:04:23,050

even have to use a timer if you don't




128

00:04:23,250 --> 00:04:24,939

want to you can come out every day and




129

00:04:25,139 --> 00:04:26,410

turn the hose on and turn it off but the




130

00:04:26,610 --> 00:04:27,160

timer makes




131

00:04:27,360 --> 00:04:29,230

super-nice to where you don't have to do




132

00:04:29,430 --> 00:04:31,088

that this will make everything automatic




133

00:04:31,288 --> 00:04:33,249

and then there's a couple of parts here




134

00:04:33,449 --> 00:04:36,459

that cook onto your timer and then you




135

00:04:36,658 --> 00:04:37,838

can put your drip tubing right up into




136

00:04:38,038 --> 00:04:39,939

those parts one of these runs to the the




137

00:04:40,139 --> 00:04:41,949

red point maples and one runs to the




138

00:04:42,149 --> 00:04:44,139

containers at the amount of time that




139

00:04:44,339 --> 00:04:46,449

you run your containers it's kind of




140

00:04:46,649 --> 00:04:47,949

subjective to the time of year it is




141

00:04:48,149 --> 00:04:49,509

what the weather is like if it's real




142

00:04:49,709 --> 00:04:51,399

windy or not right now they could




143

00:04:51,598 --> 00:04:53,949

probably run these every other day or




144

00:04:54,149 --> 00:04:55,389

every two days to keep them happy




145

00:04:55,589 --> 00:04:57,399

because it's still pretty cool but when




146

00:04:57,598 --> 00:04:58,660

it gets really hot they'll be running




147

00:04:58,860 --> 00:04:59,379

them everyday




148

00:04:59,579 --> 00:05:00,790

so we'll probably start by running them




149

00:05:00,990 --> 00:05:02,439

for thirty minutes just to kind of gauge




150

00:05:02,639 --> 00:05:04,059

how much water comes out and how




151

00:05:04,259 --> 00:05:06,369

saturated the soil is and then we'll go




152

00:05:06,569 --> 00:05:06,939

from there




153

00:05:07,139 --> 00:05:08,480

so now let's start planting




154

00:05:08,680 --> 00:05:55,410

[Music]




155

00:05:57,959 --> 00:06:00,199

you guys I think that these are going to




156

00:06:00,399 --> 00:06:01,790

be absolutely gorgeous and you can




157

00:06:01,990 --> 00:06:03,520

already see them starting to take shape




158

00:06:03,720 --> 00:06:06,889

in purple fountain grass gets huge so




159

00:06:07,089 --> 00:06:08,930

it'll get these huge graceful plumes on




160

00:06:09,129 --> 00:06:11,210

the top and it will fill in beautifully




161

00:06:11,410 --> 00:06:12,949

and then with how this supertunia vistas




162

00:06:13,149 --> 00:06:14,810

snowdrift is supposed to grow I think




163

00:06:15,009 --> 00:06:16,730

we're gonna be in for like a super




164

00:06:16,930 --> 00:06:18,710

dramatic show maybe even all the way to




165

00:06:18,910 --> 00:06:21,800

the crown the kitty loves it and I think




166

00:06:22,000 --> 00:06:24,079

with the general design like if you look




167

00:06:24,279 --> 00:06:25,699

down the way and you see the line of




168

00:06:25,899 --> 00:06:27,680

trees in the line of containers I think




169

00:06:27,879 --> 00:06:30,920

going with just one one arrangement the




170

00:06:31,120 --> 00:06:32,329

same thing in every container will be a




171

00:06:32,529 --> 00:06:35,120

very striking effect and it won't you




172

00:06:35,319 --> 00:06:37,338

know jar your eyes too much and also




173

00:06:37,538 --> 00:06:38,960

just using two different plants instead




174

00:06:39,160 --> 00:06:40,400

of using you know a whole bunch of




175

00:06:40,600 --> 00:06:41,990

different colors in this one container




176

00:06:42,189 --> 00:06:44,449

and the other supertunia vistas that are




177

00:06:44,649 --> 00:06:46,009

available are all in the pink family




178

00:06:46,209 --> 00:06:47,509

which is great for me because I love




179

00:06:47,709 --> 00:06:49,400

pink I love to use those in fact I'm




180

00:06:49,600 --> 00:06:50,540

using a whole bunch of my garden this




181

00:06:50,740 --> 00:06:52,550

year but I was so excited to learn that




182

00:06:52,750 --> 00:06:54,020

there was a new one and that it was




183

00:06:54,220 --> 00:06:56,149

white because I do think I could have a




184

00:06:56,348 --> 00:06:58,430

garden completely full of green like




185

00:06:58,629 --> 00:07:00,468

shades of green foliage with white




186

00:07:00,668 --> 00:07:02,870

blooms and I would be happy with that so




187

00:07:03,069 --> 00:07:05,480

when I planted these I did add in some




188

00:07:05,680 --> 00:07:07,160

of this continuous release plant food




189

00:07:07,360 --> 00:07:09,230

like I do in all my containers I think I




190

00:07:09,430 --> 00:07:11,600

added about between 8 and 10 tablespoons




191

00:07:11,800 --> 00:07:13,910

and just mixed it into about the top




192

00:07:14,110 --> 00:07:16,430

couple inches of soil with plants like




193

00:07:16,629 --> 00:07:18,620

this that are huge huge performers they




194

00:07:18,819 --> 00:07:20,180

are really hungry plants they need a lot




195

00:07:20,379 --> 00:07:22,460

of food to perform the best so I always




196

00:07:22,660 --> 00:07:24,199

start with that and then I'm actually




197

00:07:24,399 --> 00:07:26,540

gonna give my parents a tub of this this




198

00:07:26,740 --> 00:07:27,980

is what I use in my containers on a




199

00:07:28,180 --> 00:07:30,170

weekly basis at home so they'll be




200

00:07:30,370 --> 00:07:31,910

feeding these plants every single week




201

00:07:32,110 --> 00:07:34,399

with a water soluble and that will keep




202

00:07:34,598 --> 00:07:36,588

them very happy and full of bloom so




203

00:07:36,788 --> 00:07:38,600

anyway that is it for this video I was




204

00:07:38,800 --> 00:07:40,278

just so excited to show you this brand




205

00:07:40,478 --> 00:07:41,930

new plant again it's not out this year




206

00:07:42,129 --> 00:07:43,910

this is gonna be brand new next year I'm




207

00:07:44,110 --> 00:07:45,319

so I'm really excited to show you guys




208

00:07:45,519 --> 00:07:47,060

progress updates throughout this season




209

00:07:47,259 --> 00:07:48,680

to see what it looks like because maybe




210

00:07:48,879 --> 00:07:49,850

this is something you'll want to add




211

00:07:50,050 --> 00:07:52,040

into your garden next year so anyway




212

00:07:52,240 --> 00:07:53,028

Planting Shade-Loving Plants in My Window Boxes!

Transcript:
 



hey guys how's it going today I'm




planting up my window boxes here on this




side of our house and I've got it kind




of laid out how I want it to look




nothing's planted yet they're all still




in their cans but I think it's gonna be




amazing so I just want to go through all




of the plants real quick and then we'll




actually get them in the window baskets




and see how it really looks all kind of




intermingled together so first off I




want to go through the plants that are




gonna be kind of sitting toward the back




of the window box I've got several who




Kuras here these are called wild berry




there is own four through nine perennial




actually I have a spot in my yard picked




out that I want to plant where I want to




plant these so I can use them in the




window boxes and then plant them out




this fall and I love to do that because




then I don't feel so bad




jamming my pots so full of stuff when I




get to use them again so these grow




about 10 14 inches tall and then they'll




spaced out probably in the landscape




about 18 or so inches and then they




throw up these really pretty bloom




spikes so like really pretty dark purple




stem with kind of these creamy pink




flowers and you can kind of see him




sticking up from all the hookers there




I've got four of these total in between




each heuchera




I'm going to plant a Carrick's called




Amazon mist




now Carrick's like this they can do full




Sun they can also do a little bit of




shade and this area actually gets a




pretty strong block of Morning Sun like




first thing it's pretty quick like maybe




two hours or so then the rest of the day




it's in shade but I find that Carrick's




like this does pretty well it won't grow




enormous it'll just kind of sit looking




like this all summer long which is




perfectly fine with me because I don't




really like to plant my window boxes




with super tall things because I like to




have the view but most especially this




grass has amazing mint green color which




looks beautiful I mean look at it in




between those who grows it's just




absolutely perfect gorgeous and then




lining around kind of the front area




here I've got several ivy I think




there's one two three four five ivy




called duck foot and it's got this




really neat kind of Stickley lobed leave




leaf instead of being really pointy like




some of your Ivy's might be this is also




a perennial so the Ivy's I don't




typically plant in the ground I just




save them over in our cold frame and




then I'll




in containers next year then we've got




some surefire rose begonias which we




just posted a video recently where we




planted a whole bunch of these




underneath our Chinese rain tree and I'm




really looking forward to having this




won't be the really the only flower




color in this arrangement all the rest




of it it's pretty much foliage I mean




the heuchera has flowers but they're




fairly small so this will be our big pop




of color and then this might be the one




I'm most excited about this is a coleus




called chocolate drop and it's instead




of being strictly upright it will




actually trail out of a container so




I've planted I'm gonna put let's see




I've planned to put four in here so they




can kind of just fill in and spill down




the front




I love the leaf on this one look how




interesting that is and I think that the




color on the interior interior of the




leaf will look really pretty with this




heuchera right here so that is the




lineup of plants so now I'm going to




take them all out I'm going to take part




of the soil while most of the soil out




from last year I still have that in this




box will get fresh stuff in some fruit




fertilizer and then we'll plant




[Music]




[Music]




I think it turned out so pretty and it




is chock-full of plants like when I got




to the last round with these Chocolate




Drops sedum I thought oh should I




squeeze those in there should I just




hold off but I think it's such a




beautiful addition and I was so excited




about using the plant that I just went




ahead and found some room and I'm not




really concerned about putting things so




close together in a shade container not




like I would be with a full Sun




container when we plant supertunias in




purple fountain grass and vertigo




Pennisetum those kind of things need a




ton of room to grow but I don't expect




really like the heuchera and the




kerrick's won't put on a whole lot more




growth they'll stay pretty much the same




size the begonias may push a little




growth if they were in more Sun they




would probably get a little bit bigger




so I'm really not that concerned I think




all of this pillars will put on growth




downward which is great you know but




we'll see as the season goes I did put




fresh soil in with slow release




fertilizer and these will be fertilized




on a probably once a week to every ten




day schedule




I don't water these quite as often as I




do my son containers so I just kind of I




don't do them quite as consistently with




my full Sun containers we want fertilize




every week without fail




so this one's done now I've got the




second one to go




[Music]




the second box is planted and I love




love how they look all of the plants are




just so pretty together and you know




they're surefire Rose begonia the pop of




pink in here is really pretty but I




honestly think that I would enjoy this




arrangement just as much without the




bloom color because there's so many




different colors and textures in just




the leaves that I think it makes it




really interesting and I do think I




called this chocolate drop coleus a




sedum earlier I don't know what I was




thinking I might have been thinking




lemon coral sedum lemon and chocolate




and I don't know but it's definitely a




coleus but I think that that is such a




beautiful touch especially right




underneath the heuchera so I did water




them in from overhead today just to make




sure all their root balls were settled




into their new homes but we do have a




drip system setup Erin and I set it up




earlier on this spring so there are five




half gallon and our emitters spread




evenly throughout this box so unless I'm




fertilizing I shouldn't have to bring




any water up here which is awesome these




plants are also very low maintenance the




only thing I'll probably do every once




in a while is come in and groom off any




spent bloom heads so any of these spikes




of blooms that are spent I'll clip off




down here below like the leaf canopy and




then the Surefire Rose begonia I




shouldn't I don't need to deadhead it




will keep blooming even if you don't




deadhead it but aesthetically I like the




way it looks when they're all cleaned up




so now I want to kind of back up and




take a look at the rest of the patio




area there's not a whole lot going on




for summer yet except for the window




boxes but it kind of just like inspires




me makes me want to keep adding more




pretty things I have these containers by




the door with the boxwood cones that




wintered over in here and then my




pansies from earlier this spring they're




still looking really sweet so I'll




probably keep them in here for a little




while until I decide what I even want to




put in these pots I might play around




with a little bit more foliage texture




and color like maybe more Chocolate




Drops sedum and some Goldilocks creeping




Jenny something like that I'm just not




sure yet and then you can see our drip




system right here so we had to run it




from the other side of the house and




there's no water source over on this




other side so we had to run it along the




ground so I do still need to order a rug




to put right in front of the door so we




can kind of tuck in all this tubing and




you won't see that anymore




and it'll look a little bit more




polished up here but I think this is a




wonderful start for summer I hope you




guys enjoyed this video I really loved




putting these together we will see you




in the next one bye

00:00:15,240 --> 00:00:16,990

the coop and that's going to be kind of




10

00:00:17,190 --> 00:00:19,570

my grounding formality for this area and




11

00:00:19,769 --> 00:00:21,400

I was kind of like thinking should I do




12

00:00:21,600 --> 00:00:23,710

more boxwood hedging but I think what I




13

00:00:23,910 --> 00:00:25,600

want to do is keep this area a little




14

00:00:25,800 --> 00:00:27,999

bit more free and full of color so I




15

00:00:28,199 --> 00:00:29,530

thought I'd be a really fun thing to




16

00:00:29,730 --> 00:00:30,699

show you guys some of the plants I'm




17

00:00:30,899 --> 00:00:32,288

putting in because I talked about




18

00:00:32,488 --> 00:00:33,939

recipes and containers all the time like




19

00:00:34,140 --> 00:00:35,469

what plants to put together that look




20

00:00:35,670 --> 00:00:36,878

really good together and that are




21

00:00:37,079 --> 00:00:39,399

compatible so I want to do that today




22

00:00:39,600 --> 00:00:40,869

showing you some really great things




23

00:00:41,070 --> 00:00:42,869

that attract butterflies in particular




24

00:00:43,070 --> 00:00:45,399

so we are gonna be planting salvia




25

00:00:45,600 --> 00:00:48,159

echinacea and dahlias I do want to talk




26

00:00:48,359 --> 00:00:49,599

to you about each one of the plants so




27

00:00:49,799 --> 00:00:51,070

let's get set up and then we can talk




28

00:00:51,270 --> 00:00:52,779

about them so the first one is called




29

00:00:52,979 --> 00:00:54,759

delightful lively lavender and you guys




30

00:00:54,960 --> 00:00:56,320

might remember I planted the mystic




31

00:00:56,520 --> 00:00:57,849

illusion Dahlia last year which has




32

00:00:58,049 --> 00:00:59,649

really dark foliage and really bright




33

00:00:59,850 --> 00:01:01,959

yellow flowers they performed so well




34

00:01:02,159 --> 00:01:04,539

I'm really excited to give this variety




35

00:01:04,739 --> 00:01:06,369

a try and I love the color of the




36

00:01:06,569 --> 00:01:09,369

flowers so this one grows about 2 to 3




37

00:01:09,569 --> 00:01:11,469

feet tall and about 20 inches wide and I




38

00:01:11,670 --> 00:01:12,909

did look on the tag they recommend




39

00:01:13,109 --> 00:01:15,039

spacing about like 12 to 16 inches so I




40

00:01:15,239 --> 00:01:17,049

did put him quite close together but




41

00:01:17,250 --> 00:01:18,519

honestly of the 3 I'm going to show you




42

00:01:18,719 --> 00:01:20,109

today I think you could just do one of




43

00:01:20,310 --> 00:01:21,640

each in a little space like maybe buy a




44

00:01:21,840 --> 00:01:24,159

mailbox or tucked into a sunny spot in




45

00:01:24,359 --> 00:01:25,929

your landscape and you would get kind of




46

00:01:26,129 --> 00:01:27,340

the same effect you would get all the




47

00:01:27,540 --> 00:01:29,289

color and the pollinator attracting




48

00:01:29,489 --> 00:01:32,109

quality so I think I've got 6 or so




49

00:01:32,310 --> 00:01:33,849

right back in here the cool thing too




50

00:01:34,049 --> 00:01:35,349

about these dahlias is that they don't




51

00:01:35,549 --> 00:01:37,299

form they were bred to not form tubers




52

00:01:37,500 --> 00:01:40,058

they may form a few but they won't form




53

00:01:40,259 --> 00:01:41,590

them like a normal Dahlia will which




54

00:01:41,790 --> 00:01:43,238

means you get earlier blooms in the




55

00:01:43,438 --> 00:01:45,278

season so they'll start blooming really




56

00:01:45,478 --> 00:01:46,750

early and then they'll bloom all the way




57

00:01:46,950 --> 00:01:48,039

through frost because all of their




58

00:01:48,239 --> 00:01:49,899

energy gets sent into bloom production




59

00:01:50,099 --> 00:01:51,969

you also don't have to deadhead them you




60

00:01:52,170 --> 00:01:54,399

can I tend to like to do that because it




61

00:01:54,599 --> 00:01:55,808

makes them look a little bit better it




62

00:01:56,009 --> 00:01:58,149

will help them rebloom a little bit more




63

00:01:58,349 --> 00:02:00,518

but it's not 100% necessary they still




64

00:02:00,718 --> 00:02:03,099

will keep blooming and their foliage is




65

00:02:03,299 --> 00:02:04,959

resistant to disease which I know that




66

00:02:05,159 --> 00:02:06,579

can be a problem like powdery mildew and




67

00:02:06,780 --> 00:02:08,710

things like that in some areas the next




68

00:02:08,909 --> 00:02:10,539

flower are these beautiful bright yellow




69

00:02:10,739 --> 00:02:12,390

echinacea they're called yellow mite




70

00:02:12,590 --> 00:02:14,580

they're actually new next year this




71

00:02:14,780 --> 00:02:17,069

particular variety I was able to get my




72

00:02:17,269 --> 00:02:18,450

hands on a few of them to try them out




73

00:02:18,650 --> 00:02:20,069

my garden to see how they grew and how




74

00:02:20,269 --> 00:02:21,990

they did I think it's gonna be beautiful




75

00:02:22,189 --> 00:02:24,210

up here with this layer of bright pink




76

00:02:24,409 --> 00:02:25,770

and then the sunshine yellow it's gonna




77

00:02:25,969 --> 00:02:28,350

be so happy these are a perennial I




78

00:02:28,550 --> 00:02:29,520

don't think I mentioned that these are




79

00:02:29,719 --> 00:02:32,099

an annual these are Hardy to zone 8 so




80

00:02:32,299 --> 00:02:33,420

they might be a perennial for some of




81

00:02:33,620 --> 00:02:35,580

you but these are winter hardy down to




82

00:02:35,780 --> 00:02:38,310

his own 4 there is on 4 through 8 so




83

00:02:38,509 --> 00:02:40,080

they do really well in our zone 5 garden




84

00:02:40,280 --> 00:02:42,030

echinacea is in general I don't have




85

00:02:42,229 --> 00:02:43,469

experience with this particular variety




86

00:02:43,669 --> 00:02:45,420

yet but I've grown lots of different




87

00:02:45,620 --> 00:02:46,890

echinacea Xand they're really reliable




88

00:02:47,090 --> 00:02:50,069

here also really great if you have bad




89

00:02:50,269 --> 00:02:50,670

soil




90

00:02:50,870 --> 00:02:52,920

they're so adaptable to all different




91

00:02:53,120 --> 00:02:54,930

kinds of soil types they can take a




92

00:02:55,129 --> 00:02:56,640

light amount of shade they perform the




93

00:02:56,840 --> 00:02:58,618

best in a full Sun area where we're at




94

00:02:58,818 --> 00:03:00,149

in front of the chicken coop gets shade




95

00:03:00,348 --> 00:03:01,860

in the morning but it gets strong




96

00:03:02,060 --> 00:03:05,160

afternoon Sun so I think that they're




97

00:03:05,360 --> 00:03:06,660

going to do really really well up here




98

00:03:06,860 --> 00:03:08,189

they should perform nicely they also




99

00:03:08,389 --> 00:03:10,980

attract pollinators bees and butterflies




100

00:03:11,180 --> 00:03:13,259

so both of these are great for that and




101

00:03:13,459 --> 00:03:15,118

the last flower in this kind of trio




102

00:03:15,318 --> 00:03:17,400

recipe of pollinator attracted plants is




103

00:03:17,599 --> 00:03:19,800

Indiglo girl salvia we just did a video




104

00:03:20,000 --> 00:03:22,289

on these not too long ago this is a new




105

00:03:22,489 --> 00:03:23,759

variety this year and I was so excited




106

00:03:23,959 --> 00:03:25,259

about it because they have such a




107

00:03:25,459 --> 00:03:27,569

striking bloom they have a really thick




108

00:03:27,769 --> 00:03:29,759

bloom stock like it's really like big




109

00:03:29,959 --> 00:03:31,830

flowers and then the calyx that holds




110

00:03:32,030 --> 00:03:34,319

the bloom onto the stem is a little bit




111

00:03:34,519 --> 00:03:36,118

darker color so when they are done




112

00:03:36,318 --> 00:03:37,560

blooming they still kind of look like




113

00:03:37,759 --> 00:03:39,090

they're in bloom so I don't feel like




114

00:03:39,289 --> 00:03:40,379

I'm in such a rush to get them




115

00:03:40,579 --> 00:03:43,230

deadheaded so these grow about 20 to 22




116

00:03:43,430 --> 00:03:44,610

inches tall and I don't think I




117

00:03:44,810 --> 00:03:46,110

mentioned these grow at 18 inches taller




118

00:03:46,310 --> 00:03:48,060

so so I should have kind of a nice




119

00:03:48,259 --> 00:03:50,219

stair-step effect with this trio right




120

00:03:50,419 --> 00:03:52,980

here and these attract bees hummingbirds




121

00:03:53,180 --> 00:03:55,800

and butterflies so these should be just




122

00:03:56,000 --> 00:03:56,819

kind of like a powerhouse for




123

00:03:57,019 --> 00:03:58,920

pollinators and I'm really excited about




124

00:03:59,120 --> 00:04:00,990

that and the last thing all three of




125

00:04:01,189 --> 00:04:02,759

these should be fairly compatible in




126

00:04:02,959 --> 00:04:04,710

terms of light and water like I said




127

00:04:04,909 --> 00:04:06,569

they all perform in full Sun which they




128

00:04:06,769 --> 00:04:09,719

will get the echinacea and salvia can




129

00:04:09,919 --> 00:04:12,450

handle some drought but they do perform




130

00:04:12,650 --> 00:04:13,770

best when they get consistent moisture




131

00:04:13,969 --> 00:04:15,210

not a lot of moisture but just




132

00:04:15,409 --> 00:04:17,579

consistent the dahlias however I will




133

00:04:17,779 --> 00:04:19,770

make sure to give consistent moisture to




134

00:04:19,970 --> 00:04:22,199

I also give them more fertilizer I'll be




135

00:04:22,399 --> 00:04:24,149

fertilizing these on a weekly basis when




136

00:04:24,348 --> 00:04:26,069

I come around to do all my containers




137

00:04:26,269 --> 00:04:27,930

the echinacea and salvia I'll be putting




138

00:04:28,129 --> 00:04:29,610

some starter fertilizer in the hole with




139

00:04:29,810 --> 00:04:32,160

them today and that'll probably be it




140

00:04:32,360 --> 00:04:34,020

for this year until I fertilize well I




141

00:04:34,220 --> 00:04:35,639

may fertilize later on in the summer or




142

00:04:35,839 --> 00:04:37,860

again next spring and for that I would




143

00:04:38,060 --> 00:04:39,689

use a fertilizer like plant tone or




144

00:04:39,889 --> 00:04:41,999

flower tone and you might notice a




145

00:04:42,199 --> 00:04:44,009

couple other things hanging out in this




146

00:04:44,209 --> 00:04:46,139

area I'm just trying some stuff out so I




147

00:04:46,339 --> 00:04:47,759

am gonna be planting a climbing rose




148

00:04:47,959 --> 00:04:50,100

called Zephyr and ruin I've got four of




149

00:04:50,300 --> 00:04:51,869

them that are gonna be trained up the




150

00:04:52,069 --> 00:04:53,520

run and kind of over the roof there are




151

00:04:53,720 --> 00:04:55,619

thornless pink rose that blooms all




152

00:04:55,819 --> 00:04:57,420

summer so we got a lot of color there




153

00:04:57,620 --> 00:04:59,249

I've got a purple fountain grass that I




154

00:04:59,449 --> 00:05:00,660

thought would be really pretty having a




155

00:05:00,860 --> 00:05:02,968

dark grassy texture right here and then




156

00:05:03,168 --> 00:05:05,129

a Miss violet butterfly bush which I'm




157

00:05:05,329 --> 00:05:06,660

probably not gonna plant today I'm just




158

00:05:06,860 --> 00:05:08,699

kind of I have it set there just to try




159

00:05:08,899 --> 00:05:10,709

it out so I just wanted to mention those




160

00:05:10,908 --> 00:05:12,149

three things cuz you will see those




161

00:05:12,348 --> 00:05:13,559

alright let's get these things in the




162

00:05:13,759 --> 00:05:14,220

ground




163

00:05:14,420 --> 00:05:37,810

[Music]




164

00:05:39,930 --> 00:05:54,709

[Music]




165

00:06:02,540 --> 00:06:12,869

[Music]




166

00:06:15,839 --> 00:06:24,159

[Music]




167

00:06:29,019 --> 00:06:32,109

[Music]




168

00:06:35,500 --> 00:07:02,249

[Music]




169

00:07:04,819 --> 00:07:07,129

[Music]




170

00:07:07,329 --> 00:07:10,189

this area turned out so cute I love it I




171

00:07:10,389 --> 00:07:11,389

think this is probably one of the most




172

00:07:11,589 --> 00:07:13,309

cheerful spots I have in my garden right




173

00:07:13,509 --> 00:07:15,588

now and it's funny how one project like




174

00:07:15,788 --> 00:07:16,879

just laying out some flowers getting




175

00:07:17,079 --> 00:07:18,110

them in the ground kind of snowballs




176

00:07:18,310 --> 00:07:20,149

into running all the drip irrigation




177

00:07:20,348 --> 00:07:21,920

getting the mulch down and planting up




178

00:07:22,120 --> 00:07:24,468

my window box so I decided instead of




179

00:07:24,668 --> 00:07:26,240

putting any color in here in terms of




180

00:07:26,439 --> 00:07:28,490

blooms just to do foliage so these are




181

00:07:28,689 --> 00:07:31,040

three clipped Sprinter box woods with




182

00:07:31,240 --> 00:07:32,718

Goldilocks creeping Jenny planted




183

00:07:32,918 --> 00:07:35,149

underneath and I think the foliage




184

00:07:35,348 --> 00:07:37,129

colors contrast each other really nicely




185

00:07:37,329 --> 00:07:39,319

and I think if I would have had color in




186

00:07:39,519 --> 00:07:40,610

here and a whole bunch of color down




187

00:07:40,810 --> 00:07:41,869

here it would have been a little bit too




188

00:07:42,069 --> 00:07:43,730

much Plus that brings a little bit more




189

00:07:43,930 --> 00:07:46,160

of a formal touch to the area and this




190

00:07:46,360 --> 00:07:49,040

spot down below can just be free and




191

00:07:49,240 --> 00:07:51,410

kind of more country feel a little bit




192

00:07:51,610 --> 00:07:52,670

more abundant with blooms




193

00:07:52,870 --> 00:07:54,679

so I did end up planting the rose and




194

00:07:54,879 --> 00:07:56,149

the purple fountain grass and then I'll




195

00:07:56,348 --> 00:07:58,850

kind of just keep moving down the way to




196

00:07:59,050 --> 00:08:00,619

finish up this whole area I did figure




197

00:08:00,819 --> 00:08:02,899

out that I needed one more Indiglo girl




198

00:08:03,098 --> 00:08:04,218

salvia so that's something I'm gonna




199

00:08:04,418 --> 00:08:05,660

keep my eye out for it down at the




200

00:08:05,860 --> 00:08:07,579

garden center this season just to finish




201

00:08:07,779 --> 00:08:09,800

my little trio and then I will be




202

00:08:10,000 --> 00:08:11,360

probably incorporating that Miss violet




203

00:08:11,560 --> 00:08:12,920

butterfly bush another plant that




204

00:08:13,120 --> 00:08:15,139

attracts butterflies and then possibly a




205

00:08:15,339 --> 00:08:18,170

small ornamental very small growing




206

00:08:18,370 --> 00:08:20,449

evergreen for some evergreen interest in




207

00:08:20,649 --> 00:08:22,519

here but my whole goal is just to kind




208

00:08:22,718 --> 00:08:26,088

of keep the area colorful and not too




209

00:08:26,288 --> 00:08:27,860

big I don't want anything to really




210

00:08:28,060 --> 00:08:31,040

block the run too much so anyway that's




211

00:08:31,240 --> 00:08:33,649

it so if you guys are looking for some




212

00:08:33,849 --> 00:08:35,750

plants to attract butterflies look for




213

00:08:35,950 --> 00:08:38,599

salvia dahlias and echinacea hope you




214

00:08:38,799 --> 00:08:40,189

guys enjoyed this video and we will see




215

00:08:40,389 --> 00:08:41,629

you in the next one

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,389

hey guys how's it going we're in front




2

00:00:01,589 --> 00:00:02,619

of the chicken coop this morning getting




3

00:00:02,819 --> 00:00:04,750

ready to do some planting the coop is




4

00:00:04,950 --> 00:00:07,240

pretty much done on the outside anyway




5

00:00:07,440 --> 00:00:08,710

just got the shutters and stove




6

00:00:08,910 --> 00:00:10,390

yesterday and it's looking a little bit




7

00:00:10,589 --> 00:00:12,910

more put together now I do have two




8

00:00:13,109 --> 00:00:15,040

serbian spruces here on either side of




9

00:00:15,240 --> 00:00:16,990

the coop and that's going to be kind of




10

00:00:17,190 --> 00:00:19,570

my grounding formality for this area and




11

00:00:19,769 --> 00:00:21,400

I was kind of like thinking should I do




12

00:00:21,600 --> 00:00:23,710

more boxwood hedging but I think what I




13

00:00:23,910 --> 00:00:25,600

want to do is keep this area a little




14

00:00:25,800 --> 00:00:27,999

bit more free and full of color so I




15

00:00:28,199 --> 00:00:29,530

thought I'd be a really fun thing to




16

00:00:29,730 --> 00:00:30,699

show you guys some of the plants I'm




17

00:00:30,899 --> 00:00:32,288

putting in because I talked about




18

00:00:32,488 --> 00:00:33,939

recipes and containers all the time like




19

00:00:34,140 --> 00:00:35,469

what plants to put together that look




20

00:00:35,670 --> 00:00:36,878

really good together and that are




21

00:00:37,079 --> 00:00:39,399

compatible so I want to do that today




22

00:00:39,600 --> 00:00:40,869

showing you some really great things




23

00:00:41,070 --> 00:00:42,869

that attract butterflies in particular




24

00:00:43,070 --> 00:00:45,399

so we are gonna be planting salvia




25

00:00:45,600 --> 00:00:48,159

echinacea and dahlias I do want to talk




26

00:00:48,359 --> 00:00:49,599

to you about each one of the plants so




27

00:00:49,799 --> 00:00:51,070

let's get set up and then we can talk




28

00:00:51,270 --> 00:00:52,779

about them so the first one is called




29

00:00:52,979 --> 00:00:54,759

delightful lively lavender and you guys




30

00:00:54,960 --> 00:00:56,320

might remember I planted the mystic




31

00:00:56,520 --> 00:00:57,849

illusion Dahlia last year which has




32

00:00:58,049 --> 00:00:59,649

really dark foliage and really bright




33

00:00:59,850 --> 00:01:01,959

yellow flowers they performed so well




34

00:01:02,159 --> 00:01:04,539

I'm really excited to give this variety




35

00:01:04,739 --> 00:01:06,369

a try and I love the color of the




36

00:01:06,569 --> 00:01:09,369

flowers so this one grows about 2 to 3




37

00:01:09,569 --> 00:01:11,469

feet tall and about 20 inches wide and I




38

00:01:11,670 --> 00:01:12,909

did look on the tag they recommend




39

00:01:13,109 --> 00:01:15,039

spacing about like 12 to 16 inches so I




40

00:01:15,239 --> 00:01:17,049

did put him quite close together but




41

00:01:17,250 --> 00:01:18,519

honestly of the 3 I'm going to show you




42

00:01:18,719 --> 00:01:20,109

today I think you could just do one of




43

00:01:20,310 --> 00:01:21,640

each in a little space like maybe buy a




44

00:01:21,840 --> 00:01:24,159

mailbox or tucked into a sunny spot in




45

00:01:24,359 --> 00:01:25,929

your landscape and you would get kind of




46

00:01:26,129 --> 00:01:27,340

the same effect you would get all the




47

00:01:27,540 --> 00:01:29,289

color and the pollinator attracting




48

00:01:29,489 --> 00:01:32,109

quality so I think I've got 6 or so




49

00:01:32,310 --> 00:01:33,849

right back in here the cool thing too




50

00:01:34,049 --> 00:01:35,349

about these dahlias is that they don't




51

00:01:35,549 --> 00:01:37,299

form they were bred to not form tubers




52

00:01:37,500 --> 00:01:40,058

they may form a few but they won't form




53

00:01:40,259 --> 00:01:41,590

them like a normal Dahlia will which




54

00:01:41,790 --> 00:01:43,238

means you get earlier blooms in the




55

00:01:43,438 --> 00:01:45,278

season so they'll start blooming really




56

00:01:45,478 --> 00:01:46,750

early and then they'll bloom all the way




57

00:01:46,950 --> 00:01:48,039

through frost because all of their




58

00:01:48,239 --> 00:01:49,899

energy gets sent into bloom production




59

00:01:50,099 --> 00:01:51,969

you also don't have to deadhead them you




60

00:01:52,170 --> 00:01:54,399

can I tend to like to do that because it




61

00:01:54,599 --> 00:01:55,808

makes them look a little bit better it




62

00:01:56,009 --> 00:01:58,149

will help them rebloom a little bit more




63

00:01:58,349 --> 00:02:00,518

but it's not 100% necessary they still




64

00:02:00,718 --> 00:02:03,099

will keep blooming and their foliage is




65

00:02:03,299 --> 00:02:04,959

resistant to disease which I know that




66

00:02:05,159 --> 00:02:06,579

can be a problem like powdery mildew and




67

00:02:06,780 --> 00:02:08,710

things like that in some areas the next




68

00:02:08,909 --> 00:02:10,539

flower are these beautiful bright yellow




69

00:02:10,739 --> 00:02:12,390

echinacea they're called yellow mite




70

00:02:12,590 --> 00:02:14,580

they're actually new next year this




71

00:02:14,780 --> 00:02:17,069

particular variety I was able to get my




72

00:02:17,269 --> 00:02:18,450

hands on a few of them to try them out




73

00:02:18,650 --> 00:02:20,069

my garden to see how they grew and how




74

00:02:20,269 --> 00:02:21,990

they did I think it's gonna be beautiful




75

00:02:22,189 --> 00:02:24,210

up here with this layer of bright pink




76

00:02:24,409 --> 00:02:25,770

and then the sunshine yellow it's gonna




77

00:02:25,969 --> 00:02:28,350

be so happy these are a perennial I




78

00:02:28,550 --> 00:02:29,520

don't think I mentioned that these are




79

00:02:29,719 --> 00:02:32,099

an annual these are Hardy to zone 8 so




80

00:02:32,299 --> 00:02:33,420

they might be a perennial for some of




81

00:02:33,620 --> 00:02:35,580

you but these are winter hardy down to




82

00:02:35,780 --> 00:02:38,310

his own 4 there is on 4 through 8 so




83

00:02:38,509 --> 00:02:40,080

they do really well in our zone 5 garden




84

00:02:40,280 --> 00:02:42,030

echinacea is in general I don't have




85

00:02:42,229 --> 00:02:43,469

experience with this particular variety




86

00:02:43,669 --> 00:02:45,420

yet but I've grown lots of different




87

00:02:45,620 --> 00:02:46,890

echinacea Xand they're really reliable




88

00:02:47,090 --> 00:02:50,069

here also really great if you have bad




89

00:02:50,269 --> 00:02:50,670

soil




90

00:02:50,870 --> 00:02:52,920

they're so adaptable to all different




91

00:02:53,120 --> 00:02:54,930

kinds of soil types they can take a




92

00:02:55,129 --> 00:02:56,640

light amount of shade they perform the




93

00:02:56,840 --> 00:02:58,618

best in a full Sun area where we're at




94

00:02:58,818 --> 00:03:00,149

in front of the chicken coop gets shade




95

00:03:00,348 --> 00:03:01,860

in the morning but it gets strong




96

00:03:02,060 --> 00:03:05,160

afternoon Sun so I think that they're




97

00:03:05,360 --> 00:03:06,660

going to do really really well up here




98

00:03:06,860 --> 00:03:08,189

they should perform nicely they also




99

00:03:08,389 --> 00:03:10,980

attract pollinators bees and butterflies




100

00:03:11,180 --> 00:03:13,259

so both of these are great for that and




101

00:03:13,459 --> 00:03:15,118

the last flower in this kind of trio




102

00:03:15,318 --> 00:03:17,400

recipe of pollinator attracted plants is




103

00:03:17,599 --> 00:03:19,800

Indiglo girl salvia we just did a video




104

00:03:20,000 --> 00:03:22,289

on these not too long ago this is a new




105

00:03:22,489 --> 00:03:23,759

variety this year and I was so excited




106

00:03:23,959 --> 00:03:25,259

about it because they have such a




107

00:03:25,459 --> 00:03:27,569

striking bloom they have a really thick




108

00:03:27,769 --> 00:03:29,759

bloom stock like it's really like big




109

00:03:29,959 --> 00:03:31,830

flowers and then the calyx that holds




110

00:03:32,030 --> 00:03:34,319

the bloom onto the stem is a little bit




111

00:03:34,519 --> 00:03:36,118

darker color so when they are done




112

00:03:36,318 --> 00:03:37,560

blooming they still kind of look like




113

00:03:37,759 --> 00:03:39,090

they're in bloom so I don't feel like




114

00:03:39,289 --> 00:03:40,379

I'm in such a rush to get them




115

00:03:40,579 --> 00:03:43,230

deadheaded so these grow about 20 to 22




116

00:03:43,430 --> 00:03:44,610

inches tall and I don't think I




117

00:03:44,810 --> 00:03:46,110

mentioned these grow at 18 inches taller




118

00:03:46,310 --> 00:03:48,060

so so I should have kind of a nice




119

00:03:48,259 --> 00:03:50,219

stair-step effect with this trio right




120

00:03:50,419 --> 00:03:52,980

here and these attract bees hummingbirds




121

00:03:53,180 --> 00:03:55,800

and butterflies so these should be just




122

00:03:56,000 --> 00:03:56,819

kind of like a powerhouse for




123

00:03:57,019 --> 00:03:58,920

pollinators and I'm really excited about




124

00:03:59,120 --> 00:04:00,990

that and the last thing all three of




125

00:04:01,189 --> 00:04:02,759

these should be fairly compatible in




126

00:04:02,959 --> 00:04:04,710

terms of light and water like I said




127

00:04:04,909 --> 00:04:06,569

they all perform in full Sun which they




128

00:04:06,769 --> 00:04:09,719

will get the echinacea and salvia can




129

00:04:09,919 --> 00:04:12,450

handle some drought but they do perform




130

00:04:12,650 --> 00:04:13,770

best when they get consistent moisture




131

00:04:13,969 --> 00:04:15,210

not a lot of moisture but just




132

00:04:15,409 --> 00:04:17,579

consistent the dahlias however I will




133

00:04:17,779 --> 00:04:19,770

make sure to give consistent moisture to




134

00:04:19,970 --> 00:04:22,199

I also give them more fertilizer I'll be




135

00:04:22,399 --> 00:04:24,149

fertilizing these on a weekly basis when




136

00:04:24,348 --> 00:04:26,069

I come around to do all my containers




137

00:04:26,269 --> 00:04:27,930

the echinacea and salvia I'll be putting




138

00:04:28,129 --> 00:04:29,610

some starter fertilizer in the hole with




139

00:04:29,810 --> 00:04:32,160

them today and that'll probably be it




140

00:04:32,360 --> 00:04:34,020

for this year until I fertilize well I




141

00:04:34,220 --> 00:04:35,639

may fertilize later on in the summer or




142

00:04:35,839 --> 00:04:37,860

again next spring and for that I would




143

00:04:38,060 --> 00:04:39,689

use a fertilizer like plant tone or




144

00:04:39,889 --> 00:04:41,999

flower tone and you might notice a




145

00:04:42,199 --> 00:04:44,009

couple other things hanging out in this




146

00:04:44,209 --> 00:04:46,139

area I'm just trying some stuff out so I




147

00:04:46,339 --> 00:04:47,759

am gonna be planting a climbing rose




148

00:04:47,959 --> 00:04:50,100

called Zephyr and ruin I've got four of




149

00:04:50,300 --> 00:04:51,869

them that are gonna be trained up the




150

00:04:52,069 --> 00:04:53,520

run and kind of over the roof there are




151

00:04:53,720 --> 00:04:55,619

thornless pink rose that blooms all




152

00:04:55,819 --> 00:04:57,420

summer so we got a lot of color there




153

00:04:57,620 --> 00:04:59,249

I've got a purple fountain grass that I




154

00:04:59,449 --> 00:05:00,660

thought would be really pretty having a




155

00:05:00,860 --> 00:05:02,968

dark grassy texture right here and then




156

00:05:03,168 --> 00:05:05,129

a Miss violet butterfly bush which I'm




157

00:05:05,329 --> 00:05:06,660

probably not gonna plant today I'm just




158

00:05:06,860 --> 00:05:08,699

kind of I have it set there just to try




159

00:05:08,899 --> 00:05:10,709

it out so I just wanted to mention those




160

00:05:10,908 --> 00:05:12,149

three things cuz you will see those




161

00:05:12,348 --> 00:05:13,559

alright let's get these things in the




162

00:05:13,759 --> 00:05:14,220

ground




163

00:05:14,420 --> 00:05:37,810

[Music]




164

00:05:39,930 --> 00:05:54,709

[Music]




165

00:06:02,540 --> 00:06:12,869

[Music]




166

00:06:15,839 --> 00:06:24,159

[Music]




167

00:06:29,019 --> 00:06:32,109

[Music]




168

00:06:35,500 --> 00:07:02,249

[Music]




169

00:07:04,819 --> 00:07:07,129

[Music]




170

00:07:07,329 --> 00:07:10,189

this area turned out so cute I love it I




171

00:07:10,389 --> 00:07:11,389

think this is probably one of the most




172

00:07:11,589 --> 00:07:13,309

cheerful spots I have in my garden right




173

00:07:13,509 --> 00:07:15,588

now and it's funny how one project like




174

00:07:15,788 --> 00:07:16,879

just laying out some flowers getting




175

00:07:17,079 --> 00:07:18,110

them in the ground kind of snowballs




176

00:07:18,310 --> 00:07:20,149

into running all the drip irrigation




177

00:07:20,348 --> 00:07:21,920

getting the mulch down and planting up




178

00:07:22,120 --> 00:07:24,468

my window box so I decided instead of




179

00:07:24,668 --> 00:07:26,240

putting any color in here in terms of




180

00:07:26,439 --> 00:07:28,490

blooms just to do foliage so these are




181

00:07:28,689 --> 00:07:31,040

three clipped Sprinter box woods with




182

00:07:31,240 --> 00:07:32,718

Goldilocks creeping Jenny planted




183

00:07:32,918 --> 00:07:35,149

underneath and I think the foliage




184

00:07:35,348 --> 00:07:37,129

colors contrast each other really nicely




185

00:07:37,329 --> 00:07:39,319

and I think if I would have had color in




186

00:07:39,519 --> 00:07:40,610

here and a whole bunch of color down




187

00:07:40,810 --> 00:07:41,869

here it would have been a little bit too




188

00:07:42,069 --> 00:07:43,730

much Plus that brings a little bit more




189

00:07:43,930 --> 00:07:46,160

of a formal touch to the area and this




190

00:07:46,360 --> 00:07:49,040

spot down below can just be free and




191

00:07:49,240 --> 00:07:51,410

kind of more country feel a little bit




192

00:07:51,610 --> 00:07:52,670

more abundant with blooms




193

00:07:52,870 --> 00:07:54,679

so I did end up planting the rose and




194

00:07:54,879 --> 00:07:56,149

the purple fountain grass and then I'll




195

00:07:56,348 --> 00:07:58,850

kind of just keep moving down the way to




196

00:07:59,050 --> 00:08:00,619

finish up this whole area I did figure




197

00:08:00,819 --> 00:08:02,899

out that I needed one more Indiglo girl




198

00:08:03,098 --> 00:08:04,218

salvia so that's something I'm gonna




199

00:08:04,418 --> 00:08:05,660

keep my eye out for it down at the




200

00:08:05,860 --> 00:08:07,579

garden center this season just to finish




201

00:08:07,779 --> 00:08:09,800

my little trio and then I will be




202

00:08:10,000 --> 00:08:11,360

probably incorporating that Miss violet




203

00:08:11,560 --> 00:08:12,920

butterfly bush another plant that




204

00:08:13,120 --> 00:08:15,139

attracts butterflies and then possibly a




205

00:08:15,339 --> 00:08:18,170

small ornamental very small growing




206

00:08:18,370 --> 00:08:20,449

evergreen for some evergreen interest in




207

00:08:20,649 --> 00:08:22,519

here but my whole goal is just to kind




208

00:08:22,718 --> 00:08:26,088

of keep the area colorful and not too




209

00:08:26,288 --> 00:08:27,860

big I don't want anything to really




210

00:08:28,060 --> 00:08:31,040

block the run too much so anyway that's




211

00:08:31,240 --> 00:08:33,649

it so if you guys are looking for some




212

00:08:33,849 --> 00:08:35,750

plants to attract butterflies look for




213

00:08:35,950 --> 00:08:38,599

salvia dahlias and echinacea hope you




214

00:08:38,799 --> 00:08:40,189

guys enjoyed this video and we will see




215

00:08:40,389 --> 00:08:41,629

you in the next one




216

Transcript:
 
1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,690

hey guys in today's video I'm just gonna




2

00:00:01,889 --> 00:00:03,129

be planting a bunch of container




3

00:00:03,330 --> 00:00:04,629

starting with the ones right in front of




4

00:00:04,830 --> 00:00:06,578

our barn along with the hay rack up




5

00:00:06,778 --> 00:00:07,960

there and then several more in the




6

00:00:08,160 --> 00:00:10,120

garden including the urns along the west




7

00:00:10,320 --> 00:00:11,470

side of our house which I'm so excited




8

00:00:11,669 --> 00:00:13,689

about and I hope you guys are not




9

00:00:13,888 --> 00:00:15,280

getting sick of planting videos but that




10

00:00:15,480 --> 00:00:17,440

is what our life is right now from about




11

00:00:17,640 --> 00:00:19,929

mid-april to mid-june it's go time in




12

00:00:20,129 --> 00:00:22,060

terms of planting here annuals




13

00:00:22,260 --> 00:00:24,010

perennials shrubs trees I mean you name




14

00:00:24,210 --> 00:00:25,568

it it's just kind of like the time of




15

00:00:25,768 --> 00:00:27,519

year for us to get everything in the




16

00:00:27,719 --> 00:00:29,260

ground so I hope you're enjoying all of




17

00:00:29,460 --> 00:00:31,720

the videos so I do have the plants that




18

00:00:31,920 --> 00:00:32,558

I'm going to use in these containers




19

00:00:32,759 --> 00:00:33,939

sitting right here on the ground let me




20

00:00:34,140 --> 00:00:35,919

show you I'm really excited about this




21

00:00:36,119 --> 00:00:38,619

color blend so I decided to go with a




22

00:00:38,820 --> 00:00:40,390

purple fountain grass as the centerpiece




23

00:00:40,590 --> 00:00:42,759

if you've never grown this it's a super




24

00:00:42,960 --> 00:00:45,669

common grass to find it's super popular




25

00:00:45,869 --> 00:00:48,358

but it grows into a very spectacular




26

00:00:48,558 --> 00:00:50,739

looking a centerpiece with really pretty




27

00:00:50,939 --> 00:00:53,018

plumes on the top and it seems like




28

00:00:53,219 --> 00:00:55,209

every year no matter what I try I end up




29

00:00:55,409 --> 00:00:56,619

putting purple fountain grass in these




30

00:00:56,820 --> 00:00:58,779

containers maybe like even somewhere




31

00:00:58,979 --> 00:01:00,698

midway in the season after one of my




32

00:01:00,899 --> 00:01:02,619

other centerpieces has died or something




33

00:01:02,820 --> 00:01:04,659

so anyway I decided to just go with that




34

00:01:04,859 --> 00:01:06,250

from the gate and I think that'll be




35

00:01:06,450 --> 00:01:07,659

great because this will go all the way




36

00:01:07,859 --> 00:01:09,700

through the season in fact I can leave




37

00:01:09,900 --> 00:01:10,899

these through the winter for winter




38

00:01:11,099 --> 00:01:13,060

interest if I decide to then we're going




39

00:01:13,260 --> 00:01:14,769

to do a Sweet Caroline light greens




40

00:01:14,969 --> 00:01:17,709

sweet potato vine which I'm excited to




41

00:01:17,909 --> 00:01:19,299

have a foliage accent I haven't done




42

00:01:19,500 --> 00:01:20,590

that in these containers for the last




43

00:01:20,790 --> 00:01:23,528

few years because they are pretty water




44

00:01:23,728 --> 00:01:26,528

hungry but we do have drip set up to the




45

00:01:26,728 --> 00:01:27,969

pots which I need to work on a little




46

00:01:28,170 --> 00:01:29,759

bit today so that won't be a problem




47

00:01:29,959 --> 00:01:33,308

this next one is gorgeous and I haven't




48

00:01:33,509 --> 00:01:35,590

used a lot of it in this garden but this




49

00:01:35,790 --> 00:01:38,738

is a Lantana called lemon zest and I




50

00:01:38,938 --> 00:01:40,628

just think it's so pretty to have that




51

00:01:40,828 --> 00:01:42,549

bright pop of yellow back here there's a




52

00:01:42,750 --> 00:01:44,738

little bit of white like a little bit of




53

00:01:44,938 --> 00:01:47,500

lighter yellow and then that really




54

00:01:47,700 --> 00:01:50,079

bright yellow anyway these which should




55

00:01:50,280 --> 00:01:51,730

do really well because it's so hot and




56

00:01:51,930 --> 00:01:53,799

sunny in front of the barn typically we




57

00:01:54,000 --> 00:01:55,509

have a really nice overcast day today




58

00:01:55,709 --> 00:01:58,689

then we have supertunia blue skies which




59

00:01:58,890 --> 00:02:02,500

this is so beautiful I love this color




60

00:02:02,700 --> 00:02:05,259

this actually reminds me of my mom she




61

00:02:05,459 --> 00:02:07,090

does a lot of like this sky blue color




62

00:02:07,290 --> 00:02:09,250

or light lavender and then coral and




63

00:02:09,449 --> 00:02:11,230

light yellow and white




64

00:02:11,430 --> 00:02:13,270

anyway that's probably where my love for




65

00:02:13,469 --> 00:02:14,000

soft




66

00:02:14,199 --> 00:02:16,910

like colors comes from I'm guessing and




67

00:02:17,110 --> 00:02:19,820

then supertunia white so I think it's




68

00:02:20,020 --> 00:02:21,789

just gonna be a really pretty blend of




69

00:02:21,989 --> 00:02:24,439

cheerful looking colors and then for the




70

00:02:24,639 --> 00:02:26,840

hay rack up top same blend of plants but




71

00:02:27,039 --> 00:02:28,340

I'm going to forego the fountain grass




72

00:02:28,539 --> 00:02:30,230

because that would kind of look odd I




73

00:02:30,430 --> 00:02:31,939

think up there the containers are




74

00:02:32,139 --> 00:02:33,890

cleaned out I have bags of soil right




75

00:02:34,090 --> 00:02:36,670

here I think I brought enough up here




76

00:02:36,870 --> 00:02:39,110

and I do want to show you the drip




77

00:02:39,310 --> 00:02:41,719

system here so it actually comes from




78

00:02:41,919 --> 00:02:44,330

inside the barn I don't know if you can




79

00:02:44,530 --> 00:02:45,920

see that right there it's kind of dark




80

00:02:46,120 --> 00:02:48,080

Aaron drilled a hole which is no big




81

00:02:48,280 --> 00:02:49,400

deal in our barn because there's like




82

00:02:49,599 --> 00:02:52,009

natural holes in our barn the drip comes




83

00:02:52,209 --> 00:02:53,630

right out through there and then through




84

00:02:53,830 --> 00:02:55,880

a hole that we drilled in the bottom




85

00:02:56,080 --> 00:02:57,830

there's actually four other drain holes




86

00:02:58,030 --> 00:03:00,110

on either side like all sides of this




87

00:03:00,310 --> 00:03:01,430

container and look at all those elm




88

00:03:01,629 --> 00:03:03,800

seeds oh they're just coming off the




89

00:03:04,000 --> 00:03:05,150

trees like crazy right now




90

00:03:05,349 --> 00:03:07,400

so you can see the quarter inch drip




91

00:03:07,599 --> 00:03:09,230

tubing comes up through the bottom we'll




92

00:03:09,430 --> 00:03:11,450

fill it with soil and then it'll just




93

00:03:11,650 --> 00:03:13,430

kind of lay against the side you know




94

00:03:13,629 --> 00:03:14,719

it'll be kind of trapped against the




95

00:03:14,919 --> 00:03:16,640

side with soil and then we'll flip it




96

00:03:16,840 --> 00:03:18,439

over the top of the soil and put some




97

00:03:18,639 --> 00:03:19,849

emitters in I think I'm going to put




98

00:03:20,049 --> 00:03:24,080

four and it currently only has the one




99

00:03:24,280 --> 00:03:25,939

right now okay so let me get them filled




100

00:03:26,139 --> 00:03:28,409

with soil




101

00:03:28,780 --> 00:03:32,968

[Music]




102

00:03:35,090 --> 00:03:37,539

so I've got my clippers extra tubing




103

00:03:37,739 --> 00:03:39,189

these are half gallon per hour emitters




104

00:03:39,389 --> 00:03:41,409

I want four of them in each container




105

00:03:41,609 --> 00:03:44,110

this stakes right here will allow me to




106

00:03:44,310 --> 00:03:46,149

run the tubing through them and then I




107

00:03:46,348 --> 00:03:47,890

can place them a lot easier with the




108

00:03:48,090 --> 00:03:49,840

help of the stakes I'm going to use a




109

00:03:50,039 --> 00:03:53,560

quarter inch cross fitting coupler and a




110

00:03:53,759 --> 00:03:56,050

quarter inch T and then this tool right




111

00:03:56,250 --> 00:03:58,539

here helps push the tubing onto the




112

00:03:58,739 --> 00:04:00,189

emitters which is super handy I'll show




113

00:04:00,389 --> 00:04:00,849

you that in a minute




114

00:04:01,049 --> 00:04:03,519

so before I cut anything on this end I'm




115

00:04:03,718 --> 00:04:05,920

going to make all four of my lines with




116

00:04:06,120 --> 00:04:07,959

the half gallon emitters on the end it's




117

00:04:08,158 --> 00:04:09,670

just easier to do it like this so I'm




118

00:04:09,870 --> 00:04:11,319

going to cut four lengths of this




119

00:04:11,519 --> 00:04:13,629

quarter inch tubing and I can trim them




120

00:04:13,829 --> 00:04:16,990

to size when I'm all done so you want to




121

00:04:17,189 --> 00:04:18,939

give yourself a little extra like a




122

00:04:19,139 --> 00:04:20,139

little bit more than you think you're




123

00:04:20,339 --> 00:04:23,110

going to need so there we go got my four




124

00:04:23,310 --> 00:04:25,718

pieces and I've got my four emitters




125

00:04:25,918 --> 00:04:28,449

right here so this tool is really handy




126

00:04:28,649 --> 00:04:29,829

I learned about this from one of you




127

00:04:30,029 --> 00:04:32,139

guys on a video where I was kind of




128

00:04:32,339 --> 00:04:34,149

complaining about how hard it is to put




129

00:04:34,348 --> 00:04:36,579

any midders and couplers onto these




130

00:04:36,779 --> 00:04:38,110

pieces of tubing it like hurts your




131

00:04:38,310 --> 00:04:40,059

fingers really bad so I didn't know this




132

00:04:40,259 --> 00:04:41,949

tool existed so you stick your let me




133

00:04:42,149 --> 00:04:45,389

just grab one you stick your emitter in




134

00:04:45,589 --> 00:04:48,699

to one end of this tool and then you




135

00:04:48,899 --> 00:04:54,509

feed your tube through and then you just




136

00:04:54,709 --> 00:04:58,899

clamp them down just like that how did I




137

00:04:59,098 --> 00:05:01,240

not know that this tool existed okay I'm




138

00:05:01,439 --> 00:05:03,430

also going to do that with my couplers




139

00:05:03,629 --> 00:05:06,670

here too I know that I need to have two




140

00:05:06,870 --> 00:05:08,829

of them coming off of the T these are




141

00:05:09,029 --> 00:05:11,259

harder the couplers are harder than the




142

00:05:11,459 --> 00:05:15,218

emitters are that's perfect and you can




143

00:05:15,418 --> 00:05:16,749

twist these around like you can twist




144

00:05:16,949 --> 00:05:18,968

the coupler and the tubing to get them




145

00:05:19,168 --> 00:05:21,009

to go you know to get the tubes to go




146

00:05:21,209 --> 00:05:22,300

where you want them to go and you can




147

00:05:22,500 --> 00:05:24,850

configure the interior of your pot with




148

00:05:25,050 --> 00:05:28,120

drips and couplers however you want but




149

00:05:28,319 --> 00:05:29,860

what I'm going to do is I'm going to cut




150

00:05:30,060 --> 00:05:32,079

this right here this is the one that's




151

00:05:32,279 --> 00:05:33,399

feeding through the bottom of the pot




152

00:05:33,598 --> 00:05:35,649

you want to make sure it doesn't go down




153

00:05:35,848 --> 00:05:38,319

into soil and then I'm going to attach




154

00:05:38,519 --> 00:05:40,838

it to one end of the cross so see I've




155

00:05:41,038 --> 00:05:43,329

got these two sides right here and then




156

00:05:43,528 --> 00:05:45,069

I'm going to use a little piece I've got




157

00:05:45,269 --> 00:05:45,699

a hook that




158

00:05:45,899 --> 00:05:47,350

to the cross I'm just gonna use a little




159

00:05:47,550 --> 00:05:52,660

piece of tubing okay so this is the tube




160

00:05:52,860 --> 00:05:54,160

that comes up from underneath the pot




161

00:05:54,360 --> 00:05:56,920

we've got a cross coupler that has this




162

00:05:57,120 --> 00:05:58,870

one with an emitter that will take care




163

00:05:59,069 --> 00:06:00,610

of kind of these plants on this side and




164

00:06:00,810 --> 00:06:02,470

then this one which will take care of




165

00:06:02,670 --> 00:06:04,300

the front plants and then on the other




166

00:06:04,500 --> 00:06:06,370

side of the cross I just put a little




167

00:06:06,569 --> 00:06:09,100

piece of tube to a tee coupler so that I




168

00:06:09,300 --> 00:06:11,020

could attach another tube with an




169

00:06:11,220 --> 00:06:12,490

emitter that will take care of this side




170

00:06:12,689 --> 00:06:14,560

and then the last tube with an emitter




171

00:06:14,759 --> 00:06:16,689

to take care of the back and that is




172

00:06:16,889 --> 00:06:18,100

what I'm going to be doing on all the




173

00:06:18,300 --> 00:06:20,530

other containers along the front of the




174

00:06:20,730 --> 00:06:22,689

barn so now I'm going to add a little




175

00:06:22,889 --> 00:06:25,060

bit of slow-release plant food and this




176

00:06:25,259 --> 00:06:27,129

just helps give a slow continuous feed




177

00:06:27,329 --> 00:06:29,020

to your plants even though I do come in




178

00:06:29,220 --> 00:06:31,420

on a weekly basis and do water-soluble




179

00:06:31,620 --> 00:06:34,090

fertilizer because I want these plants




180

00:06:34,290 --> 00:06:35,920

to perform really really well and you




181

00:06:36,120 --> 00:06:37,569

need to feed them really well in order




182

00:06:37,769 --> 00:06:39,400

for that to happen so now I'm going to




183

00:06:39,600 --> 00:06:41,560

plant my centerpiece first which is the




184

00:06:41,759 --> 00:06:43,449

purple fountain grass and this is an




185

00:06:43,649 --> 00:06:45,100

interesting container because you would




186

00:06:45,300 --> 00:06:46,960

think that I would back my centerpiece




187

00:06:47,160 --> 00:06:49,240

up to the wall just because the




188

00:06:49,439 --> 00:06:50,860

containers kind of backed up to the wall




189

00:06:51,060 --> 00:06:53,110

but you see these from three sides you




190

00:06:53,310 --> 00:06:54,610

do see them from this side because our




191

00:06:54,810 --> 00:06:56,620

driveway runs this way you see them from




192

00:06:56,819 --> 00:06:58,540

the other side and from the front so I




193

00:06:58,740 --> 00:07:00,370

really do want the flower interest to be




194

00:07:00,569 --> 00:07:03,250

all the way around the centerpiece so




195

00:07:03,449 --> 00:07:04,629

we're just gonna kind of put this right




196

00:07:04,829 --> 00:07:07,629

in the center here I think that'll be




197

00:07:07,829 --> 00:07:10,810

really really nice okay and then I kind




198

00:07:11,009 --> 00:07:12,250

of forgot how I was gonna arrange all




199

00:07:12,449 --> 00:07:14,439

the rest of these I dunno I want my




200

00:07:14,639 --> 00:07:16,509

sweet potato vine to be in the front so




201

00:07:16,709 --> 00:07:18,310

we'll place that one you notice my




202

00:07:18,509 --> 00:07:20,079

emitter goes right to the potato vines




203

00:07:20,279 --> 00:07:22,270

root ball because this is the most water




204

00:07:22,470 --> 00:07:24,009

hungry of all the plants I'm putting in




205

00:07:24,209 --> 00:07:25,720

so you just want to be mindful of that




206

00:07:25,920 --> 00:07:29,770

there we go I think I'm just gonna place




207

00:07:29,970 --> 00:07:32,410

everything else I'm gonna kind of go in




208

00:07:32,610 --> 00:07:36,879

thirds here I think we'll see how this




209

00:07:37,079 --> 00:07:41,689

ends up there's the blue




210

00:07:41,889 --> 00:07:47,460

so white white and white




211

00:07:47,660 --> 00:07:50,160

okay so supertunias are all kind of




212

00:07:50,360 --> 00:07:52,230

split into thirds except for this little




213

00:07:52,430 --> 00:07:54,540

space here I'm going to plant those and




214

00:07:54,740 --> 00:07:56,639

then the Lantana's I'm gonna back plant




215

00:07:56,839 --> 00:07:58,470

because my supertunia is more of a




216

00:07:58,670 --> 00:08:00,780

dramatic Spiller and the Lantana is a




217

00:08:00,980 --> 00:08:03,540

little bit more tall so we'll get these




218

00:08:03,740 --> 00:08:07,050

all in and you'll see the root balls are




219

00:08:07,250 --> 00:08:08,819

not very bound this one needs water i




220

00:08:09,019 --> 00:08:10,860

haven't watered anything yet today and




221

00:08:11,060 --> 00:08:14,790

and you really don't need to tease the




222

00:08:14,990 --> 00:08:17,218

roots unless it's like severely root




223

00:08:17,418 --> 00:08:19,829

bound which this time of year you really




224

00:08:20,029 --> 00:08:22,829

don't find that that often unless you're




225

00:08:23,029 --> 00:08:24,150

waiting to get your annuals into a




226

00:08:24,350 --> 00:08:25,620

little bit later like this right here




227

00:08:25,819 --> 00:08:28,650

you can see a lot of soil still it looks




228

00:08:28,850 --> 00:08:30,750

pretty nice oh my goodness I just love




229

00:08:30,949 --> 00:08:34,500

this combination sometimes it's really




230

00:08:34,700 --> 00:08:36,620

hard for me to want to try out different




231

00:08:36,820 --> 00:08:39,419

plants because sometimes I find things




232

00:08:39,620 --> 00:08:41,699

that I love I'm like supertunia Bordeaux




233

00:08:41,899 --> 00:08:44,370

for example I love that plant and I




234

00:08:44,570 --> 00:08:46,409

could use every single year all over in




235

00:08:46,610 --> 00:08:48,870

all of my containers but then like I




236

00:08:49,070 --> 00:08:50,429

don't know we wouldn't have very many




237

00:08:50,629 --> 00:08:52,139

interesting videos for you guys if




238

00:08:52,339 --> 00:08:54,359

that's all I plant it and it is fun




239

00:08:54,559 --> 00:08:55,859

because sometimes when you try out new




240

00:08:56,059 --> 00:08:58,859

things you find something that is that




241

00:08:59,059 --> 00:09:01,169

becomes your new favorite and like these




242

00:09:01,370 --> 00:09:03,419

supertunia blue skies I haven't ever




243

00:09:03,620 --> 00:09:05,399

planted this particular supertunia I




244

00:09:05,600 --> 00:09:07,709

think it's fairly new anyway it's almost




245

00:09:07,909 --> 00:09:09,479

kind of an electric blue color when I




246

00:09:09,679 --> 00:09:11,909

look at it close I think I'm gonna




247

00:09:12,110 --> 00:09:15,329

really enjoy that see the Lantana's will




248

00:09:15,529 --> 00:09:17,129

put on a little more height I think yeah




249

00:09:17,330 --> 00:09:20,039

12 to 24 inches so I definitely didn't




250

00:09:20,240 --> 00:09:21,269

want them right in the front of the




251

00:09:21,470 --> 00:09:23,159

container we'll let the supertunia and




252

00:09:23,360 --> 00:09:24,889

the potato vine do the spilling thing




253

00:09:25,089 --> 00:09:27,120

Lantana's will grow up and be kind of my




254

00:09:27,320 --> 00:09:28,969

filler plant and then I've got my




255

00:09:29,169 --> 00:09:30,990

centerpiece in the purple fountain grass




256

00:09:31,190 --> 00:09:34,259

and I want to do four of these in all




257

00:09:34,460 --> 00:09:36,629

four corners of the square here like




258

00:09:36,830 --> 00:09:39,929

that and it does seem like an awful lot




259

00:09:40,129 --> 00:09:43,019

of plants if these were supertunia




260

00:09:43,220 --> 00:09:45,689

vistas out of that series I definitely




261

00:09:45,889 --> 00:09:47,879

wouldn't plant that many in here because




262

00:09:48,080 --> 00:09:51,439

they grow like they're so vigorous but




263

00:09:51,639 --> 00:09:53,389

we'll see we'll see how vigorous they I




264

00:09:53,589 --> 00:09:55,250

mean all supertunias are really great




265

00:09:55,450 --> 00:09:57,740

growers and they're vigorous plants but




266

00:09:57,940 --> 00:09:58,878

there's nothing quite like those




267

00:09:59,078 --> 00:10:01,519

supertunia vistas that's why we use




268

00:10:01,720 --> 00:10:03,229

those in the hay racks up front because




269

00:10:03,429 --> 00:10:05,389

you can get away with using far less of




270

00:10:05,589 --> 00:10:08,089

those than really anything else and it




271

00:10:08,289 --> 00:10:09,559

kind of scoop everything away from the




272

00:10:09,759 --> 00:10:11,049

purple fountain grass a little bit




273

00:10:11,250 --> 00:10:13,578

because that will need to its own space




274

00:10:13,778 --> 00:10:17,599

and I think that that looks gorgeous so




275

00:10:17,799 --> 00:10:19,549

even though I have a drip system run to




276

00:10:19,750 --> 00:10:21,109

these containers every time I plant




277

00:10:21,309 --> 00:10:22,669

something new I always water it in with




278

00:10:22,870 --> 00:10:25,008

a hose to begin with just to make sure




279

00:10:25,208 --> 00:10:26,000

everything's settled




280

00:10:26,200 --> 00:10:27,258

I check around the root balls to make




281

00:10:27,458 --> 00:10:29,120

sure I didn't miss any places because




282

00:10:29,320 --> 00:10:30,139

you want to make sure that there's no




283

00:10:30,339 --> 00:10:31,849

air coming up against any other roots




284

00:10:32,049 --> 00:10:34,039

and I just want to settle everything in




285

00:10:34,240 --> 00:10:35,359

from overhead and then the drip system




286

00:10:35,559 --> 00:10:37,429

can take off from there and the only




287

00:10:37,629 --> 00:10:38,719

maintenance I will have in this




288

00:10:38,919 --> 00:10:41,870

container is weekly fertilizing and then




289

00:10:42,070 --> 00:10:43,729

possibly trimming toward the middle part




290

00:10:43,929 --> 00:10:45,318

of summer summer because these will




291

00:10:45,519 --> 00:10:47,089

probably reach the ground and I don't




292

00:10:47,289 --> 00:10:48,469

really want them trailing all over the




293

00:10:48,669 --> 00:10:49,909

place so I'll probably keep them level




294

00:10:50,110 --> 00:10:51,919

with the bottom of the pot but all of




295

00:10:52,120 --> 00:10:53,990

these do not require deadheading they're




296

00:10:54,190 --> 00:10:56,179

really great that way so now let me




297

00:10:56,379 --> 00:10:57,649

tackle the rest of these containers




298

00:10:57,850 --> 00:10:59,089

along the bottom of the bar and then




299

00:10:59,289 --> 00:11:00,349

we'll go up and do the hay rack here




300

00:11:00,549 --> 00:11:02,479

they are all planted and they look so




301

00:11:02,679 --> 00:11:05,029

pretty I really like this blend of color




302

00:11:05,230 --> 00:11:07,068

and there's no pink are you guys




303

00:11:07,269 --> 00:11:08,899

surprised so now that I'm done with




304

00:11:09,100 --> 00:11:10,818

these containers I need to tackle the




305

00:11:11,019 --> 00:11:12,859

hay rack up there and I'm trying to




306

00:11:13,059 --> 00:11:14,328

remember how I did that last year I




307

00:11:14,528 --> 00:11:16,969

think I used an extension ladder because




308

00:11:17,169 --> 00:11:18,828

only one side of the window opens and I




309

00:11:19,028 --> 00:11:20,508

couldn't reach all the way to the end of




310

00:11:20,708 --> 00:11:23,089

the hay rack on one side so I do think I




311

00:11:23,289 --> 00:11:25,008

need to get a ladder out and I don't




312

00:11:25,208 --> 00:11:26,209

even know if they're soil in there or




313

00:11:26,409 --> 00:11:28,099

not from last year we'll have to run




314

00:11:28,299 --> 00:11:29,539

upstairs and see it's also starting to




315

00:11:29,740 --> 00:11:31,729

rain a little bit out here hopefully it




316

00:11:31,929 --> 00:11:35,849

doesn't pick up it's nice today though




317

00:11:39,399 --> 00:11:44,069

yep dang so I need to clean that soil




318

00:11:44,269 --> 00:11:48,479

out and then put fresh stuff in and then




319

00:11:48,679 --> 00:11:50,339

plant it's a pretty view down to the




320

00:11:50,539 --> 00:11:54,969

garden though look at that I love it




321

00:11:55,169 --> 00:12:13,308

[Music]




322

00:12:14,759 --> 00:12:17,049

I just got dirt and Coco fiber all over




323

00:12:17,250 --> 00:12:20,159

my face so I got the ladder set up and




324

00:12:20,360 --> 00:12:23,469

then what I did was I like heaved the




325

00:12:23,669 --> 00:12:26,409

whole Coco fiber liner and soil out of




326

00:12:26,610 --> 00:12:28,000

the hay rack and then just tossed it




327

00:12:28,200 --> 00:12:31,479

inside so that's one way to clean out




328

00:12:31,679 --> 00:12:33,490

your Coco fiber liners I think I




329

00:12:33,690 --> 00:12:35,939

probably just made a huge mess upstairs




330

00:12:36,139 --> 00:12:39,549

yeah huge mess a lot safer doing it that




331

00:12:39,750 --> 00:12:40,929

way than trying to come down the ladder




332

00:12:41,129 --> 00:12:43,059

with it though and now I've got to fill




333

00:12:43,259 --> 00:12:45,250

those both up with soil so I've got




334

00:12:45,450 --> 00:12:47,169

brand new fresh soil in here else well




335

00:12:47,370 --> 00:12:48,849

as the slow release fertilizer you can




336

00:12:49,049 --> 00:12:50,529

kind of see it I already mixed it in and




337

00:12:50,730 --> 00:12:52,659

then I've got three one gallon per hour




338

00:12:52,860 --> 00:12:55,029

emitters and each one of these hair acts




339

00:12:55,230 --> 00:12:57,729

and then I went up the stairs and put




340

00:12:57,929 --> 00:12:59,859

the plants out the window here so I'm




341

00:13:00,059 --> 00:13:01,479

going to start arranging I think I'm




342

00:13:01,679 --> 00:13:04,149

gonna do two blues and two whites in




343

00:13:04,350 --> 00:13:06,309

each one see how this hay rack is it's




344

00:13:06,509 --> 00:13:08,409

split into two I had to do it that way




345

00:13:08,610 --> 00:13:11,500

to actually like make the width of this




346

00:13:11,700 --> 00:13:13,089

window because I couldn't find one that




347

00:13:13,289 --> 00:13:16,419

was the exact width and then maybe -




348

00:13:16,620 --> 00:13:19,299

potato vine like one on each side so




349

00:13:19,500 --> 00:13:22,059

that it's really even in the middle and




350

00:13:22,259 --> 00:13:24,849

then all the Lantana lemon zest will be




351

00:13:25,049 --> 00:13:27,699

kind of toward the back all right




352

00:13:27,899 --> 00:13:28,879

here we go




353

00:13:29,080 --> 00:13:44,378

[Music]




354

00:13:44,578 --> 00:13:47,779

while that was an adventure I ended up




355

00:13:47,980 --> 00:13:50,029

only putting three supertunias per hair




356

00:13:50,230 --> 00:13:53,209

act so I did a blue a white and then a




357

00:13:53,409 --> 00:13:56,539

blue and then I did three Lantana to




358

00:13:56,740 --> 00:13:58,459

back it because I do get quite large I




359

00:13:58,659 --> 00:14:01,729

didn't space that one quite right there




360

00:14:01,929 --> 00:14:02,709

we go




361

00:14:02,909 --> 00:14:05,209

only difference on the other side is I




362

00:14:05,409 --> 00:14:07,459

just put the one potato vine which




363

00:14:07,659 --> 00:14:09,709

hopefully will kind of grow I pointed it




364

00:14:09,909 --> 00:14:10,639

this direction




365

00:14:10,839 --> 00:14:12,169

hopefully it'll grow and look like it's




366

00:14:12,370 --> 00:14:13,909

right in the middle all right so let's




367

00:14:14,110 --> 00:14:15,349

go downstairs and see what it looks like




368

00:14:15,549 --> 00:14:16,729

from down there although I don't think




369

00:14:16,929 --> 00:14:17,868

it'll look that great




370

00:14:18,068 --> 00:14:19,519

until it starts filling in a little bit




371

00:14:19,720 --> 00:14:21,589

and spilling over the edges and then I'm




372

00:14:21,789 --> 00:14:23,058

gonna run inside quick and clean off my




373

00:14:23,259 --> 00:14:25,549

face before I continue punching Crum I




374

00:14:25,750 --> 00:14:26,839

forgot to close the window while I was




375

00:14:27,039 --> 00:14:29,269

up there but you can see the flowers I




376

00:14:29,470 --> 00:14:30,828

don't know how well it seems kind of




377

00:14:31,028 --> 00:14:32,808

dark in the camera I can see them a




378

00:14:33,009 --> 00:14:34,159

little bit peeking over the edge but




379

00:14:34,360 --> 00:14:35,448

once they start spilling it'll look




380

00:14:35,649 --> 00:14:37,909

amazing and I love that they will match




381

00:14:38,110 --> 00:14:40,159

the pots right underneath so I'm up on




382

00:14:40,360 --> 00:14:41,359

the west side of the house getting ready




383

00:14:41,559 --> 00:14:43,308

to plant these four beautiful urns that




384

00:14:43,509 --> 00:14:45,198

we placed recently I think this is




385

00:14:45,399 --> 00:14:46,729

actually the last planting project I'm




386

00:14:46,929 --> 00:14:48,409

going to get to this afternoon because I




387

00:14:48,610 --> 00:14:49,789

got a really late start and they're




388

00:14:49,990 --> 00:14:51,289

taking me a lot longer than I thought




389

00:14:51,490 --> 00:14:51,889

they would




390

00:14:52,089 --> 00:14:53,990

with all the drip and all that I did




391

00:14:54,190 --> 00:14:55,539

fill all of these with soil all the way




392

00:14:55,740 --> 00:14:58,698

already just now and I got the drip all




393

00:14:58,899 --> 00:15:00,078

set up because it's pretty much exactly




394

00:15:00,278 --> 00:15:02,059

the same as what I just did I'll show




395

00:15:02,259 --> 00:15:04,248

you a close-up I only did three emitters




396

00:15:04,448 --> 00:15:06,469

in each urn so now all I need to do is




397

00:15:06,669 --> 00:15:08,779

put my slow release fertilizer in show




398

00:15:08,980 --> 00:15:10,878

you the plants and get them in the urns




399

00:15:11,078 --> 00:15:13,309

first off before we go to the urns since




400

00:15:13,509 --> 00:15:14,688

I'm standing right here look at these




401

00:15:14,889 --> 00:15:17,868

climbing Colette roses aren't they the




402

00:15:18,068 --> 00:15:22,399

most beautiful things I just love them




403

00:15:22,600 --> 00:15:23,539

and they're starting to climb up the




404

00:15:23,740 --> 00:15:25,729

trellis Arbor whatever




405

00:15:25,929 --> 00:15:29,628

here comes Russell and I did plant some




406

00:15:29,828 --> 00:15:32,688

supertunia snowdrift in each one of the




407

00:15:32,889 --> 00:15:34,938

boxwood swoops here because I thought it




408

00:15:35,139 --> 00:15:36,258

would be fun to try it out in the




409

00:15:36,458 --> 00:15:38,479

landscape as opposed to containers like




410

00:15:38,679 --> 00:15:40,729

we did out at my parents house so we'll




411

00:15:40,929 --> 00:15:42,139

see how they do each one of these is




412

00:15:42,339 --> 00:15:43,729

supposed to get like two feet tall by




413

00:15:43,929 --> 00:15:47,058

four feet wide so I only planted six and




414

00:15:47,259 --> 00:15:48,558

I think they'll fill in this space just




415

00:15:48,759 --> 00:15:50,448

perfect and here are the plants that I




416

00:15:50,649 --> 00:15:52,639

chose so we're gonna do another purple




417

00:15:52,839 --> 00:15:54,469

fountain grass I got some great big ones




418

00:15:54,669 --> 00:15:55,909

for this project because I kind of




419

00:15:56,110 --> 00:15:56,569

wanted insta




420

00:15:56,769 --> 00:15:58,939

impact and then we're gonna surround




421

00:15:59,139 --> 00:16:01,279

those grasses with some diamond frost




422

00:16:01,480 --> 00:16:03,769

euphorbia which has that beautiful




423

00:16:03,970 --> 00:16:07,279

ethereal kind of cloud like I don't know




424

00:16:07,480 --> 00:16:09,289

it's just so pretty the little white




425

00:16:09,490 --> 00:16:11,629

blooms and then super Belle's white




426

00:16:11,830 --> 00:16:15,409

right here and then some dichondra




427

00:16:15,610 --> 00:16:17,870

silver Falls for our weeping foliage




428

00:16:18,070 --> 00:16:20,689

accent so last year I planted super




429

00:16:20,889 --> 00:16:22,639

Belle's white diamond frosty for BIA and




430

00:16:22,839 --> 00:16:26,000

then a skyrocket Pennisetum I think no




431

00:16:26,200 --> 00:16:27,649

desert plains Pennisetum in the




432

00:16:27,850 --> 00:16:29,479

containers in front of the vegetable




433

00:16:29,679 --> 00:16:32,479

garden and they were so gorgeous they




434

00:16:32,679 --> 00:16:34,578

did so well and these containers are not




435

00:16:34,778 --> 00:16:36,258

that far away I mean the vegetable




436

00:16:36,458 --> 00:16:38,120

gardens right there so these are gonna




437

00:16:38,320 --> 00:16:40,159

get pretty much the same conditions that




438

00:16:40,360 --> 00:16:42,379

that container had last year and so I




439

00:16:42,580 --> 00:16:43,909

kind of wanted to replicate that this




440

00:16:44,110 --> 00:16:46,039

year because I had such great luck also




441

00:16:46,240 --> 00:16:49,008

having the supertunia snowdrift in the




442

00:16:49,208 --> 00:16:51,379

boxwood so having the white on that side




443

00:16:51,580 --> 00:16:52,669

of the pathway and then drawing the




444

00:16:52,870 --> 00:16:54,979

white over into the containers I think




445

00:16:55,179 --> 00:16:57,500

will be a really restful thing to do and




446

00:16:57,700 --> 00:16:59,120

then I can start filling in the rest of




447

00:16:59,320 --> 00:17:01,309

the area with some other color but I




448

00:17:01,509 --> 00:17:03,039

think I'm gonna do one fountain grass




449

00:17:03,240 --> 00:17:06,049

maybe three of all the rest of the




450

00:17:06,250 --> 00:17:07,729

plants will have to see these are a




451

00:17:07,929 --> 00:17:09,229

little bit smaller than the planters I




452

00:17:09,429 --> 00:17:11,269

just planted so this is the esplanade




453

00:17:11,470 --> 00:17:14,029

urn from unique stone on a pillar that I




454

00:17:14,230 --> 00:17:15,559

cannot remember the name of these do not




455

00:17:15,759 --> 00:17:17,329

come together you have to order them




456

00:17:17,529 --> 00:17:20,899

separately and but they're beautiful I




457

00:17:21,099 --> 00:17:24,259

absolutely absolutely love them and you




458

00:17:24,459 --> 00:17:26,450

can see the drip the quarter inch drip




459

00:17:26,650 --> 00:17:28,190

comes right through the bottom in fact




460

00:17:28,390 --> 00:17:29,479

we showed this to you in another video




461

00:17:29,679 --> 00:17:31,460

we run the drip up because there is a




462

00:17:31,660 --> 00:17:33,079

hole through the pillar and then a hole




463

00:17:33,279 --> 00:17:34,669

the drainage hole up through the urn and




464

00:17:34,869 --> 00:17:37,069

then it comes in right here




465

00:17:37,269 --> 00:17:39,319

I put a Crofts coupler and then I did




466

00:17:39,519 --> 00:17:41,240

three emitters in this container just




467

00:17:41,440 --> 00:17:43,549

kind of split it into thirds so all of




468

00:17:43,750 --> 00:17:45,629

these urns are ready for planting




469

00:17:45,829 --> 00:18:09,408

[Music]




470

00:18:11,220 --> 00:18:13,399

alright guys they're all planted and I




471

00:18:13,599 --> 00:18:15,889

love love them I think they look like




472

00:18:16,089 --> 00:18:18,529

such an elegant classic mix of colors




473

00:18:18,730 --> 00:18:21,409

and textures I just love like the




474

00:18:21,609 --> 00:18:23,480

all-white look with that grass in the




475

00:18:23,680 --> 00:18:25,430

middle and everything of course will




476

00:18:25,630 --> 00:18:27,589

grow crazy they'll get really big I




477

00:18:27,789 --> 00:18:30,200

ended up doing the one grass and then I




478

00:18:30,400 --> 00:18:32,358

did three diamond frost euphorbias kind




479

00:18:32,558 --> 00:18:34,579

of set back from the edge and then in




480

00:18:34,779 --> 00:18:36,589

front of the diamond frost I did the




481

00:18:36,789 --> 00:18:38,509

dichondra silver falls and then in




482

00:18:38,710 --> 00:18:40,309

between each grouping of that I did the




483

00:18:40,509 --> 00:18:42,619

super Belles white and I'm hopeful that




484

00:18:42,819 --> 00:18:44,930

these will look just like the containers




485

00:18:45,130 --> 00:18:46,759

that were in front of the vegetable




486

00:18:46,960 --> 00:18:47,329

garden




487

00:18:47,529 --> 00:18:49,519

I hope they fill in and are as full of




488

00:18:49,720 --> 00:18:52,039

flowers as those were but I think it was




489

00:18:52,240 --> 00:18:53,690

kind of the right thing to do in terms




490

00:18:53,890 --> 00:18:56,899

of color because it looks so great with




491

00:18:57,099 --> 00:19:00,099

this style of urn as well as the white




492

00:19:00,299 --> 00:19:02,000

supertunias that we have on the other




493

00:19:02,200 --> 00:19:03,858

side I just love it and the North Pole




494

00:19:04,058 --> 00:19:06,229

Arbor vytas are doing so well we were




495

00:19:06,429 --> 00:19:07,849

looking at pictures the other day of




496

00:19:08,049 --> 00:19:09,950

what they look like when we planted them




497

00:19:10,150 --> 00:19:13,250

and they were about they were barely




498

00:19:13,450 --> 00:19:16,369

over this second like this middle I




499

00:19:16,569 --> 00:19:19,399

guess middle fence rail right here so




500

00:19:19,599 --> 00:19:21,470

they have grown significantly I mean




501

00:19:21,670 --> 00:19:23,839

putting on that much growth and then




502

00:19:24,039 --> 00:19:26,779

they've at least doubled if not more in




503

00:19:26,980 --> 00:19:29,509

size I can't wait until they become a




504

00:19:29,710 --> 00:19:31,220

solid green wall because can you imagine




505

00:19:31,420 --> 00:19:33,710

these urns set apart from any




506

00:19:33,910 --> 00:19:35,119

distractions you know in the background




507

00:19:35,319 --> 00:19:37,608

but just having that solid green while




508

00:19:37,808 --> 00:19:40,399

it's 10 to 15 feet tall I think the




509

00:19:40,599 --> 00:19:43,789

contrast will be beautiful we also did




510

00:19:43,990 --> 00:19:47,240

end up my mom found seven more North




511

00:19:47,440 --> 00:19:49,009

Pole Arbor vitaes ordered them in for us




512

00:19:49,210 --> 00:19:51,889

so we could finish off the hedge it's




513

00:19:52,089 --> 00:19:53,269

gonna look a little funny for a while




514

00:19:53,470 --> 00:19:56,419

but these will catch up but because I




515

00:19:56,619 --> 00:19:58,669

didn't realize I hadn't really thought




516

00:19:58,869 --> 00:20:01,069

of the urns I was going to do a big




517

00:20:01,269 --> 00:20:03,169

evergreen right here and so the the




518

00:20:03,369 --> 00:20:04,789

arbor vitae hedge was gonna kind of




519

00:20:04,990 --> 00:20:07,099

disappear behind that big spruce but




520

00:20:07,299 --> 00:20:09,139

then I decided to go with the urns so I




521

00:20:09,339 --> 00:20:11,000

need to continue my green wall all the




522

00:20:11,200 --> 00:20:12,710

way down to the birch and then this is




523

00:20:12,910 --> 00:20:14,479

where I'll start in with my bigger




524

00:20:14,679 --> 00:20:16,460

plantings of evergreens so that this




525

00:20:16,660 --> 00:20:18,200

will be my disappearing wall kind of




526

00:20:18,400 --> 00:20:20,180

like right in here I hope that makes




527

00:20:20,380 --> 00:20:21,609

sense but




528

00:20:21,809 --> 00:20:23,559

this has been kind of an evolving




529

00:20:23,759 --> 00:20:25,599

process just like everything is in our




530

00:20:25,799 --> 00:20:28,899

garden so it's been really fun to kind




531

00:20:29,099 --> 00:20:30,849

of see it go from what it wasn't we




532

00:20:31,049 --> 00:20:33,669

moved in to what it is today and what it




533

00:20:33,869 --> 00:20:35,409

I can kind of see the potential for what




534

00:20:35,609 --> 00:20:37,599

it will be here and even like a couple




535

00:20:37,799 --> 00:20:39,399

years or five years or ten years it's




536

00:20:39,599 --> 00:20:41,319

going to be amazing and the last little




537

00:20:41,519 --> 00:20:43,269

bit is still yet to be mulched this is




538

00:20:43,470 --> 00:20:45,039

where we ended up we have our second




539

00:20:45,240 --> 00:20:47,859

mulch over there we are just needing




540

00:20:48,059 --> 00:20:50,409

extra time to get that done but we're




541

00:20:50,609 --> 00:20:52,899

almost there so anyway guys that is it




542

00:20:53,099 --> 00:20:55,389

for this video I got 2 big groupings of




543

00:20:55,589 --> 00:20:57,490

pots done which makes me happy they're




544

00:20:57,690 --> 00:21:00,159

all on drip so after today after I water




545

00:21:00,359 --> 00:21:02,200

them all in they are good to go for this




546

00:21:02,400 --> 00:21:03,909

season in terms of that I don't have




547

00:21:04,109 --> 00:21:06,129

like a daily maintenance tour with them




548

00:21:06,329 --> 00:21:08,019

which is awesome and that's what takes a




549

00:21:08,220 --> 00:21:09,519

little extra time getting them all set




550

00:21:09,720 --> 00:21:12,549

up like that but it's 100% worth it




551

00:21:12,750 --> 00:21:14,289

because I can enjoy them so much more




552

00:21:14,490 --> 00:21:15,849

when I'm not feeling like I'm a slave to




553

00:21:16,049 --> 00:21:17,980

them every day you know making sure that




554

00:21:18,180 --> 00:21:20,079

either myself or somebody else is here




555

00:21:20,279 --> 00:21:22,419

to give them water so anyway thank you




556

00:21:22,619 --> 00:21:23,740

557

00:21:23,940 --> 00:21:25,299

1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,690

hey guys in today's video I'm just gonna




2

00:00:01,889 --> 00:00:03,129

be planting a bunch of container




3

00:00:03,330 --> 00:00:04,629

starting with the ones right in front of




4

00:00:04,830 --> 00:00:06,578

our barn along with the hay rack up




5

00:00:06,778 --> 00:00:07,960

there and then several more in the




6

00:00:08,160 --> 00:00:10,120

garden including the urns along the west




7

00:00:10,320 --> 00:00:11,470

side of our house which I'm so excited




8

00:00:11,669 --> 00:00:13,689

about and I hope you guys are not




9

00:00:13,888 --> 00:00:15,280

getting sick of planting videos but that




10

00:00:15,480 --> 00:00:17,440

is what our life is right now from about




11

00:00:17,640 --> 00:00:19,929

mid-april to mid-june it's go time in




12

00:00:20,129 --> 00:00:22,060

terms of planting here annuals




13

00:00:22,260 --> 00:00:24,010

perennials shrubs trees I mean you name




14

00:00:24,210 --> 00:00:25,568

it it's just kind of like the time of




15

00:00:25,768 --> 00:00:27,519

year for us to get everything in the




16

00:00:27,719 --> 00:00:29,260

ground so I hope you're enjoying all of




17

00:00:29,460 --> 00:00:31,720

the videos so I do have the plants that




18

00:00:31,920 --> 00:00:32,558

I'm going to use in these containers




19

00:00:32,759 --> 00:00:33,939

sitting right here on the ground let me




20

00:00:34,140 --> 00:00:35,919

show you I'm really excited about this




21

00:00:36,119 --> 00:00:38,619

color blend so I decided to go with a




22

00:00:38,820 --> 00:00:40,390

purple fountain grass as the centerpiece




23

00:00:40,590 --> 00:00:42,759

if you've never grown this it's a super




24

00:00:42,960 --> 00:00:45,669

common grass to find it's super popular




25

00:00:45,869 --> 00:00:48,358

but it grows into a very spectacular




26

00:00:48,558 --> 00:00:50,739

looking a centerpiece with really pretty




27

00:00:50,939 --> 00:00:53,018

plumes on the top and it seems like




28

00:00:53,219 --> 00:00:55,209

every year no matter what I try I end up




29

00:00:55,409 --> 00:00:56,619

putting purple fountain grass in these




30

00:00:56,820 --> 00:00:58,779

containers maybe like even somewhere




31

00:00:58,979 --> 00:01:00,698

midway in the season after one of my




32

00:01:00,899 --> 00:01:02,619

other centerpieces has died or something




33

00:01:02,820 --> 00:01:04,659

so anyway I decided to just go with that




34

00:01:04,859 --> 00:01:06,250

from the gate and I think that'll be




35

00:01:06,450 --> 00:01:07,659

great because this will go all the way




36

00:01:07,859 --> 00:01:09,700

through the season in fact I can leave




37

00:01:09,900 --> 00:01:10,899

these through the winter for winter




38

00:01:11,099 --> 00:01:13,060

interest if I decide to then we're going




39

00:01:13,260 --> 00:01:14,769

to do a Sweet Caroline light greens




40

00:01:14,969 --> 00:01:17,709

sweet potato vine which I'm excited to




41

00:01:17,909 --> 00:01:19,299

have a foliage accent I haven't done




42

00:01:19,500 --> 00:01:20,590

that in these containers for the last




43

00:01:20,790 --> 00:01:23,528

few years because they are pretty water




44

00:01:23,728 --> 00:01:26,528

hungry but we do have drip set up to the




45

00:01:26,728 --> 00:01:27,969

pots which I need to work on a little




46

00:01:28,170 --> 00:01:29,759

bit today so that won't be a problem




47

00:01:29,959 --> 00:01:33,308

this next one is gorgeous and I haven't




48

00:01:33,509 --> 00:01:35,590

used a lot of it in this garden but this




49

00:01:35,790 --> 00:01:38,738

is a Lantana called lemon zest and I




50

00:01:38,938 --> 00:01:40,628

just think it's so pretty to have that




51

00:01:40,828 --> 00:01:42,549

bright pop of yellow back here there's a




52

00:01:42,750 --> 00:01:44,738

little bit of white like a little bit of




53

00:01:44,938 --> 00:01:47,500

lighter yellow and then that really




54

00:01:47,700 --> 00:01:50,079

bright yellow anyway these which should




55

00:01:50,280 --> 00:01:51,730

do really well because it's so
