A Tale of Two Hollyhocks

Benjamin Hill over at Dave's Garden blog wrote a lovely article about Priscilla and the Hollyhocks, click here to read. Makes me wish the parking lot behind our building had even the tiniest place to garden. I'll just have to save my hollyhock seeds for the day when we have a yard.

I saw a great idea in a magazine (ReadyMade, maybe?) about an apartment dweller who created a rolling planter with a crate on big casters. He not only was able to find a spot for it in his parking lot, he was able to roll it around to catch better sun in the afternoon! Maybe your parking lot is not too small for this kind of ingenuity???

I love the idea of a rotating garden to catch the sun, so sweet! We couldn't do it in our lot- there is no place that isn't trafficked by cars or people. BUT we are planning a move in the next year, so maybe then.
