What Is Your Garden Style?

Choosing from tons of plant materials and containers can be confusing.  Sometimes you don't know where to begin.  Well here are a few tips that we hope will help.

First try to figure out what your style of decorating is.  Are you into colorful planters with wild patterns and bold pigments?  You love to plant green in them and have the focus be the container and not the plants.  Or, do you like all white containers?  This way you can plant all the colorful flowers you like and change it up from season to season.  One season go all pink and the next season you plant all colors of the rainbow.  All of these combinations work in a white garden planter or container.

Do you like a traditional look where topiary trees are potted or do you go for something a bit more playful like a bright pot with grass shooting up out of it creating a wild look.  Do you like mixing plants in pots or are you prone to one plant style per container?  How about smell?  Maybe you don't like a lot of fragrance or does the smell of something sweet drifting on the air excite you?  Some prefer to group many pots together and others like a simple bold statement!

By answering these questions will help you to get started and make a decision before you spend a ton of money on something you are not happy with.  Everyone has different tastes and not one is better than another.  Discover what moves you and go with that.  There is nothing more satisfying then sitting out on your patio, drinking a glass of tea, and admiring the decorative pottery you have surrounding you.

Do antique roses do equally as well in a deciduos summer shade location?


A Vibrant Window Box Planter

It's really easy and all you need to do is follow these simple steps!

 
Select a terracotta clay rectangle planter or one made of poly resin that has a terracotta color to it.  The garden pot shown is 30" long.  We offer a number of terracotta planters and poly resin that would work.  Fill the window box with compost, mixing in 2 teaspoons of plant food or fertilizer.  Plant the gazanias on either side of the center.

 14391

Plant the nasturtiums at each end of the terracotta container and in the center of the pot.

 14392

Plant the three brachycome plants, evenly spaced, along the front of the container and then plant the two snapdragons on either side of the central nasturtium.  Water the whole container thoroughly and stand in a sunny position.
 
The leaves of the Alaska nasturtium look as if they have been spattered with cream paint.  In this flower box they are planted with yellow flowered snapdragons, gazanias and branchycomes daisies.  Stunning!
 
Nasturtiums are among the easiest plants to grow from seed.  Start them off about 6 weeks before you plant the window box planter, potting them on to keep them growing vigorously.  Plant this container in Spring.
 
 14393What you will need:

1 - 30" long terracotta planter

Compost

Fertilizer

2 yellow gazanias

3 Alaska nasturtiums

3 Branchycome Lemon 
mist

2 yellow snapdragons.
