Potting Up Sago Palms Outside My Winter House

Planting continues in front of my Winter House carport - this time, with four young sago palms, and some Scotch moss.

A few months ago, my friend and owner of Luppino Landscaping and Masonry LLC, Carmine Luppino, gave me four beautiful antique ornamental urns. They look so beautiful on the stone wall in front of my White Garden. Last week, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, potted them up with four sago palms, or cycads, which were cut as pups from a mother sago some time ago. Ryan also underplanted them with Scotch moss 'Aurea' - a lush, chartreuse to yellow, moss-like herbaceous perennial that forms a low-growing, soft mat. The combination is so pretty.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
