It is amazing how easily one can shroud something even as large as an old satellite dish if you know the right type of flowering annual vine to plant beneath it.
In bygone days we used to grow a dozen or more types of flowering annual vines. They just never took off with the public at large, but perhaps now that we’re on the web things might just turn around again. But for now, we’ve got a few basics to offer.
