My name is Alison Pond, and I own this. Primo pots and planters in Moorestown, New Jersey. After 20 years in sales ranging from Xerox copiers to pharmaceuticals this is a Chapter 2 career for me. After surviving countless layoffs, I left the industry to pursue a job that didn’t destroy my soul. I started this business in 2016 and received my Master Gardener certification in 2019. These are some of the containers I make for my clients.
This window box features Angelonia. (Angelonia angustifolia, Zones 9-11 or as an annual), Sun Patens (Impatient Hockery, Zones 10-11 or as an annual), angel wing senecio (Senecio candicans, Zones 8-10 or as an annual), cosmos (Cosmos bipnotus, annual), lobularia (Lobularia maritima, Zones 9-11 or as an annual) and creeping gentian (Lysmachia nummularia, Zones 3-9).
This topiary was my most popular design this season. It features a braided hibiscus. (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, Zones 9–11 or as an annual), San Patens, Supertonia (Petunia Hybrids, zones 10-11 or as an annual), sweet potato vine (Ipomoea batatas, Zones 10-11 or as an annual) Calibrachoa (Zones 10-11 or as an annual) Verbena (Zones 9-11 or as an annual), and Bacopa (Zones 9-11 or as an annual).
This window box is full. Pentas (Zones 10-11 or as an annual) Lying down (Zones 8-11 or as an annual), Sun Patens, Corkscrew Rush (Jinx Ephesus ‘Spiralis’, zones 5-11), creeping genie, and Lobleria. I customized the accents, which are bleached wood bell cups, and added some moss to the center. These colors were used for the university this student is attending in the fall.
It contains a small pot for a shady spot. Caladium (Zones 8-11 or as a tender bulb) Begonia (Zones 10-11 or as an annual), sweet potato vine, an aerial plant (Tlandsia, Zones 10-11 or as an annual or house plant) and Bell Cup.
