I remember when I was a teenager and my Mom used to try to get me to work in her gardens and I wouldn't have any of it. Now look at me! I spend 5 to 6 hours a day when I can, outside and there's really nothing I like more than working in my garden! I've been working on so many things but I thought I'd share this easy little project with you!
Many of you know that I've have this plate border for a few years now but on the opposite side I just had cement edgers.
Plates as edgers won't work in every garden but if you love cottage style gardens they're perfect! I've only had one or two break in the 3 years that I've had them and since they're not valuable it's really no big deal.
I hadn't weeded in ages so this was just a hot mess!
So this week those edgers came out and more plates went in! I weeded and added a few more perennials.
I love that Coleus so I'm propagating some cuttings so I can have more in this border.
This is my cottage garden and it's right in front of my veggie garden!
All the plates were thrifted over the past 3 or 4 months. I did try to just get pretty ones or ones that were interesting.
Thanks for stopping by to see this garden project and be sure to visit Kimba's blog for more garden party fun! I can't wait to see everyone's projects!
