Container Joy




 13312 Title
 

Container gardens add splashes of color and life to your yard, patio or porch areas.

 
If you live in a tiny city apartment or on a large country estate, planting in containers is a way to add splashes of color and natural beauty to your environment.  When there isn't soil available, for planting, or where soil is really poor quality, containers are the solution.

They add color where there isn't much and they can add a lovely texture when something extra is needed.  Steps, decks, driveways etc all need some kind of enhanced beauty, and pottery is the solution.

When you use potted plants you can instantly add color and decoration.  The day of the party you need some color - add a pot bursting with local flowers.  You want to move your plant from shade to sunlight during certain times of the day?  Container plants are easy to move!
Below are a few tips to help you along!

Start with a planter that you really like and then select the plants. Make sure there is enough room for the root system of the plants.  Create a look with plants that compliments each other with similar form, size and texture.  Add contrasting elements for interest.

Grouping containers for effect is fun to do.  Mixing type of pots and styles with colors is easy and it makes a great impact.
