After painting some landscaping pots last week, I couldn’t wait to get some pretty spring flowers into them. But it’s been cold and rainy here in South Carolina for about a week. When the sunshine came out Friday, I was off to the store to get some bedding plants to put in one of the pots.
I decided to use this pretty blue pot, and you can see our rainbow of painted plastic pots that I showed you in my last post. Since these pots are large, I upturned a smaller plastic pot to save a little on the soil.

The soil mixture that I put in my pot is the same mixture that we put in our raised beds. In fact, Leo just dumped a bag of this garden soil in the raised bed that was closest to the pot that I was filling.
He also added a bag of Black Kow which is composted cow manure, and he had already added some of our own homemade compost into the beds about a week ago. So I just mixed that all together and started filling the pot.
After filling the pot with my soil mixture, I lifted it into our garden cart because I knew I was going to move the pot to a protected area. We are having unusually cold weather here and a hard freeze was expected over the weekend, so I didn’t want to leave the tender plants outside. It was easy to lift the pot because it’s plastic!
