How to make a Flower Foun­tain

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Classifieds -

Make a flower foun­tain in your back­yard with pretty flow­ers or straw­berry plants which you can eat once they’ve grown big and red.

What you will need:

3 or more dif­fer­ent sized plant pots. Seedlings of petu­nias or straw­berry plants. A good soil mix. Large peb­bles or small rocks from the gar­den.

Build your foun­tain:

1. Put a layer of rocks in the bot­tom of each pot and then fill each pot with the soil mix. 2. Stack the pots from big­gest to small­est putting the big­gest pot on the bot­tom

and the small­est pot on the top. It should look like a pyra­mid now. 3. Use your fingers to make lit­tle holes in the soil that is still vis­i­ble on each layer. Re­mem­ber to leave a gap be­tween each seedling so that it has room to grow. 4. Wa­ter your flower (or straw­berry) foun­tain about 3 times a week and watch

your seedlings grow.
