Here are a few simple tips to help when thinking about what type of potted containers you are going to tackle for your yard or garden areas.
Grow the tastiest and most nutritious fruits right on your deck or patio. Start by planting a dwarf peach tree in a wooden box or terracotta pot. Add three strawberry plants, and then dress it all up with a bunch of annual flowers. Sit back and enjoy luscious berries in spring, peaches in summer and flowers all season long. Nice pot eh?
Forget trying to get grass in shady areas. Plant a rustic pot with shade loving fuschia, ferns and impatients. Then sit back in a comfy chair with a glass of lemonade and watch your neighbors mow their lawns.
Lastly, does your porch lack pizzazz? Fill a plain container with ivy, bright faced pansies, sapphire lobelias, and wine red geraniums. In just a few weeks, the pot will be stuffed with blooms, enticing passerbys to stop and admire your creativity.
