Left front - marigolds
I was also very pleased to see that some of the marigold seeds made it through the winter and have sprouted. This means I won't have to do any work getting this planter going. Here's a few of them.
Also happy to see that my idea of putting low maintenance perennials into the tire planter has paid off. I won't need to spend money on any plants for that either. And hopefully won't have to wate it. Yah I know, too much ask for. :) When I first discovered this planter all that was still alive from the former home owner was the dianthus. Now it also has hens with chicks, an opunta cactus, a very rowdy coopers ice plant, dusty miller and a burgundy glow ajuga. I think I'll be able to move some cuttings to elsewhere in the yard if it gets too crowded.
