Yesterday I finally got around to potting up the two new fig trees I brought home from Charleston. I really wanted to go to Lowes while I was there, just to see what they had that was different. I was blown over. It's a good thing we didn't have much room in the car for the return trip, or I would have had zero self control. There were enormous cycads and agave. Tons of different types of bougainvillea, and citrus. Lots and lots of citrus.
|Walking up to Lowes, the first thing I saw were enormous citrus trees. I mean just look at these guys!|
|They even came with some South Carolina weeds!|
|All of my figs (and a few of the citrus) are planted in these brown terracotta pots that I just love.|
|Moved into the front windows where they will wait patiently for their turn at "Summer Camp" in the Garden!|
|Two of the 'Chicago Hardy' figs are putting out a lot of fruit. I really, really, really need to get started on cleaning up the mess of a bed along the South side of the house that will become their home. And I need to get it done soon!|
