Living Wall Planter

"I do not know the names of the plants I used in the Living Wall. What I did was look for plants that do well with direct sunlight. I also placed the plants where the color display was balanced. This planter really did turn out beautiful. I created this arrangement the first of May. I enjoy being greeted with this display of beauty after a long days work. This is why I named it 'My Serenity."

Laura Baker, Kennesaw, GA

Window Box Planter

"We have used Pamela Crawford's side planting baskets for years and have always had amazing results. This year, we planted two (2) 36" window box planters with red Dragon Wing begonias, dracaena spike, asparagus ferns and licorice plants. Rather than display the baskets under our windows, we set the planters on the wall of our front porch. We included a lime green sweet potato vine on the 'backside' to cascade over the edge. Thank you for making a great product."
