Unfortunately that site is no longer. When I plant containers there really isn't any recipe, I just try to envision what is going to look good together and how they're going to look when they grow. Unfortunately, that doesn't always work and there are times that I find months down the road that the entire container is totally different. When planting, the plants sometimes also get moved around quite a bit.
Oh, that's a nice little area! I love the spinning wheel. And are you just using the milk can as a stand for a pot, or are the plants potted directly in it? We have one of those, but DH won't let me use it, the rat!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
My guess it would be lantana with less sun than it wants.
These combos arenot written in stone.I might pur zinnias there.
The nastuerteums were awfull.I wont try to grow them in containers again.
