I had a chance to work in my gardens that really needed it. I bought this bed pan awhile back - previously posted here.
I wanted it to go in my garden. I have been trying to grow plants from cuttings and one of those plants was these Kalanchoes.
I knew with all the rain we have here that the bed pan would need holes or the plants would drown. This was an easy process. I put a metal drill bit on my drill and began. After a few minutes, I had my holes.
I guess its days as a bed pan are over, since it now leaks!My Kalanchoe grows easily in and around some coral rocks, so I hoped that this bed pan planter would be a great place for them too. Not sure if it will be deep enough as they mature.
They are still rather small but seem to be doing well. It makes a nice addition to one of my flower gardens near the barn.
I love it there. I still have some other containers that I would like to add to this garden. For now it is a start. The great thing about flower gardens is that you can keep adding to them, or even take plants away. For now, I am adding.
