Sometimes----you just have to go with instinct on how much space a plant needs to do
its absolute best.
I built a SFG bed near the road. I wanted wave petunias in it this year and knowing how long waves can grow I had to raise the bed really high.
And knowing how far and wide wave petunias can spread--------this bed has only 3 plants in it. The bed is 4X4 inside the blocks. Pic was taken end of June.

those are stunning Carolyn - sadly my beautiful waves for 2010 graced the stomachs of our roaming deer - they have eaten things they have never eaten before, and mine were not inside me fenced sfg and fell prey to the wildlife. Oh well, such is life with critters around Smile love your picture!

Your flower bed is beautiful! You might be pleasantly surprised next year when you still have wave petunias without purchasing new plants. Mine have reseeded very easily, some have reverted to a different color, while others have not. I did not know they would do that. Just leave the spot alone in the spring and see what you get. (We a a similar zone.)

Boffer, I don't know what CMU stands for ---but I am assuming something to do with the
concrete blocks---since they are dry stacked.
the blocks are so heavy---they dont move or get pushed out of place.
and if I change my mind on bed design in the future---I can change it.
I am growing the Easy Wave Pink in this box come Spring.
I use to grow the waves--or easy waves in huge hanging pots on the porch and seeds would fall to the beds below and germinate. But they were always out of place and I pull them up. Also---living here in the south----those huge hanging pots would dry out very quickly during mid summer so I stopped having hanging pots and decided to invest
in deep deep grow beds. Not because the roots needed it----but because it held more water for longer time and ----it works great for plants that hang over in long lengths.

I thought about making several "Tower Planters" for wave petunias.
2ft X 2ft with 2 wave petunia plants.
I haven't seen anyone else do it----and I think it would make a nice display.
(maybe paint the blocks)

Hurray for flowers, I just have to say. My "landscaping" flowers did really well for the first time this year. They are all bee-attracting varieties, and I added a few more this year, too. Some are just annuals, but those have surprised me before by lasting more than one year, so we'll see. I don't have the room for something like those gorgeous wave petunias, though!
