I tossed seed in my old bath tub last autumn. (Yes, it's my own baby tub). I'll probably never find the seed packet. Red at bottom of pic is first bloom. I didn't realize Poppy's grow more than one bloom per plant. And I didn't realize how nicely they drape. I don't know if I love them. #poppy

Shelley, hi! Happy Monday to you! It is loaded and I was hoping they would hold off til the 4th. The night sky petunia goes well with everything. My old tub. Our kids have actually used this for a sled when they were tiny. It's been well used. @ShelleySnyder

It's a shame the cats like them. I didn't know they would seed this easily Jason. Couldn't believe they appeared. Maybe toss some seed in a few pots in fall. Would you be able to keep them from the kitties tho? Pets are sure a pain sometimes. There is always a trade off. That said, we have dogs, cats and chickens. My baby seedlings don't survive chickens very well. Have a good week! @Jasonsparkes1

No, I can't get in it anymore! That sounds like a very good use for them Keely. I may try a little this way. @Keely
