Imitation is the Best Form of Flattery

Wednesday, June 10, 2015


 Last month the Tulsa Herb Society toured the beautiful garden of Linda Vater in Oklahoma City.
It was a treat.  The minute our bus parked and we got off the bus every neighbor on
Linda's street could hear our "ahhhs and ohhhhs.  There is just so much to see in
Linda's garden.  It's gardens like this that inspire and give us wonderful ideas.
They say, "imitation is the best form of flattery" so I just hope that Linda is flattered
by me copying her wire planter.
The picture above is a wire planter that Linda had in her front porch area.
It's such a good idea because you can change this planter out with different plants - since they're in clay pots.
You can also move this planter to different areas of your garden to shelter from extreme weather.
Here's my wire planter with two little English boxwoods. 
English boxwoods are slow growers - perfect for clay pots. 
My only reservation with planting in clay pots is that they dry out so quickly.
I'll be moving this into a shady area next week - where it will stay until probably Labor Day.
Thank you Linda for allowing us to tour your garden.  It was so inspiring. 
Go to to see Linda's garden.
