Let’s Make A Container Garden!

The best part about warmer weather is spending a little time outdoors and enjoying sprucing up your front porch.   The best part about container gardens is that the sky is the limit with what type of garden you want to create.

Elements of a great container garden.

Spiller-   A plant that will grow like crazy and needs room to spread all over.  Look for plants with vines, flowing leaves, and “waterfall” like properties.

Thriller-  A centerpiece that is a pop of color or an unexpected surprise.   Think big, think bold, think something that could compliment any color scheme you already are working with outside on your porch.

Filler- Choose plants to fill in the gaps.   Look for leafy full greenery, types of pants that will bloom all season.

Whimsey- Add a little something special, an ornament, a sign with a positive saying or if you have kids perhaps a fun figure or character.
