My greenhouse job involves perks, like free plants! So late this summer I got 4 Red Rooster grasses. I was thinking ahead to making a fall display. The pots I had just didn't inspire me. So I decide to cover a plastic one. I cut a template out of plastic sheeting & began this quick task.
I sewed the side together on my machine in the house. Then safety pinned the bottom.
Then, as I planted the grass, I tucked in the top edges and packed dirt around that outside edge.
The Red Rooster is a brown wispy grass, but not a perennial where I live.
Are you ready for the results? If only our last name was Thompson or something starting with "T". I might find a Halloween tarantula to pin on the pot, that would probably be cute.
I couldn't resist a funny picture:
I think the late summer heat is getting to me. No, really.... my hair does look like this some mornings.
