Master Gardener says potted gardens perfect for small spaces - Times Record News
JoAnn Plaxco, a Wichita Falls Master Gardener, is a classic example of one who utilizes limited space and nature’s resources to produce spectacular small garden areas for fruits and vegetables to thrive.
“With just a little time and effort you can grow things like tomatoes and onions in pots filled with ground leaves, grass clippings, sand and dirt,” she said. “Pots can be set where they get the right amount of sun and shade for whatever you are growing.
“When you buy a pot be sure it has enough holes in the bottom or at least one hole large enough for drainage and air circulation.”
It is also recommended that instead of tin cans and rocks in the bottom of the pot to use something mesh, like burlap that will allow drainage and not clog the holes.
In flower gardening, some plants, like gold dust aucuba demand shade. Others, like geraniums prefer morning sun and afternoon shade. Only pots can add this sort of advantage, and Plaxco said,” Don’t assume any size pot will do because size matters. Ask a nurseryman for help if you are unsure.”
Too large a pot can become water logged and cause root rot. Small pots can sometimes dry too quickly. For example, a bougainvillea likes a slightly dry soil and the comfort of being root-bound, where tomato plants and wax leaf begonias need room to grow and spread.
Where container gardening is concerned, Plaxco has learned to take advantage of incorporating large plastic boxes similar to those used in storing away Christmas and holiday decorations. The popular size is six feet long and two feet wide.
“They can be similar to raised beds that work well in confined areas,” she said.
“I drill a few holes in the sides and bottom of the plastic containers, set them in good lighting locations and fill them with about a third each of compost, sand and dirt. Then you can plant rows of onions, black eyed peas, potatoes, peppers or whatever you want to grow.
“Lack of pot and container drainage and the tendency to over-water has killed many plants,” she added. “Trial and error is a learning experience we all go through. Whether it is a full-size garden or small area for containers, growing your own vegetables and flowers can be fun and addictive.”
Just remember, if you think you don’t have enough room, think containers.

Maximillian sunflowers hold a special place in our ecosystem
Early in the summer, I observed a healthy group of green leafy plants growing along the Wichita Valley Rail Trail on the southwest edge of Wichita Falls.
At first glance, you don't see anything spectacular for a plant; tall, leafy, unbranched stems at about 3 feet tall, but as they thrive throughout the summer heat, their life-saving powers come to light! A passer-by wouldn't notice anything outstanding about these plants until late August and September.
That's when these plants begin a superhero transformation into an appearance of brilliant golden-yellow flowers.
Maximillian sunflowers (Helianthus maximiliani) have a special place in our prairie ecosystem, not only for its "perfect timing" when it comes to blooming, but for its heavy crop of seeds that can help feed small animals.
Their flower heads can reach up to 5 inches across and can form from 15 to 19 ray flowers that seem to spiral their way up to the sky. Why does their bloom time happen so late in the summer?
Ask a Monarch butterfly! The Monarchs that migrate through our area, after summer days up north, can attest to the importance of this bloom time. As the Monarchs head south to their Mexico over-wintering site, they search for nectar producing flowers to provide them with that extra burst of energy needed to make this long journey.
Maximillian sunflowers supply them this valuable fuel. Also, the plants, which can grow up to 10 feet tall, provide homes for a variety of insects and cover for small mammals and songbirds. By attracting this plethora of insects, birds, such as bobwhite quail, will take advantage of these protein rich insects and, when the seed heads begin to fall, munch on the abundant seeds as well.
