Postby The Estate » Wed Jun 11, 2008 6:13 pm

AS you all know Mr. W made these about 4 - 5 years ago out of the left overs from when I had the fence replaced, and we call them our coffin boxes, have had lots of diff. things over the years but the daisies have done the best to date (Y) and dont need replacing all the time :wink:

They look terrific. Such a variety, love the way they tumble out of the containers and look so lush.

Federation types only grow as annuals here. Some perennial types die off completely in winter and shoot again in spring.

Good thing about the Coffins is, a quick coat of paint and they are ready for the real thing, after all, Springvale Cemetery is just up the road. :lol: :lol: :lol:
