cool idea, but the flowers don't want to grow in the part of the bucket that is shaded. this person must have just planted these flowers because there is no way the pansies inside the bucket would bloom.
Viola Teardrops Mixed - Flowering for several months from late winter, the small faces of these pretty violas will bring lots of cheer to your pots, windowboxes and hanging baskets. They are incredibly prolific and will produce masses and masses of their dainty little flowers in a rich, velvety mix of colours. In time they will cascade over the edge of the pots, forming a trail up to 35cm long.
