The butterfly counts not months, but moments, and has time enough. - Rabindranath Tagore
What a pretty idea and am loving the choice on impatiens. Hope you post another pic when it has fully grown I would love to see that!!
Those impatiens look so large and healthy. What a great idea!
@Julia@PolkaDotGaloshes I am curious to see how it looks myself...
@PlantPostings I have two like this, and am hoping they cover the entire pot in a month or so. Thanks for stopping by.
this is much prettier than strawberries. I love how the flowers are filling out and covering the pot.
Lovely idea. It'll be even nicer when it fills out more.
Works a treat, hope you don't miss the Strawberries too much.
This is lovely. I never thought about using impatiens in these jars. I have one that is in a good place. Lots of light but in shade.
What a cool idea!! I love impatiens! I've always avoided strawberry jars but now I may reconsider! :o)
I definitely thinks this looks much prettier than strawberries. What a clever way to re-use these jars!
@Marguerite I like that part of it as well.
@Bridget I think so, too...looking forward to seeing it filled in.
@Alistair This is another strawberry pot. The strawberries in the other pot are almost finished their fruiting. :(
@Lola That would be a perfect spot. I love impatiens...and to find a new way to enjoy them is a happy accident.
@Casa Mariposa I have used them for herbs as well when I did not have a lot of space. Enjoy...
@Rose It does, doesn't it? There is always this dilemma between function and beauty!
Sage- I see a marketing opportunity here...
I didn't find strawberries worked so well in these pots. i think you found a better use, impatiens to feed the soul!
Wow that jar is beautiful, unfortunately we dont have strawberry here in the lowlands and in our only strawberry-producing area in the country we dont see those jars. I am sure it can be used also for other annuals aside from impatiens; e.g. portulaca or some hanging succulents.
A lovely idea, I can just imagine the mass of blooms in no time. :)
@Mario :)...You are welcome to take it on.
@Janet My strawberries do okay in the pot, but I agree...I think they would do better in the ground.
@Andrea I will have to try portulacas which I love. I have tried herbs in these pots which works well. Succulents would use less water...
@Racquel I hope they cover the pot.
See, self, this is how lovely a pot can look when you actually water it... :)
It looks really great with impatiens...Strawberry jars are pretty expensive here, I wish I could buy a few just for strawberries :).
@Hanni :)...that is funny! I have done the same thing...
@Masha The plain clay ones are not very expensive here. The more fancy and painted ones can be.
@Desperate Gardener Thanks, Stacy. I might try more of them next year.
Sage,I'm new to your blog and enjoying seeing what I've briefly perused. Strawberry Jars are singing your praises.
I've grown lots of different things in my strawberry pot, lately I've had hens & chicks in it. Your impatience looks great.
@Patrick's Garden Thank you, Patrick. I am very glad you enjoyed your visit.
@Crafty Gardener I have another with hens and chicks...they work really well together, don't they?
