Container gardening is loved by many because it's quick and fairly easy to do, a bit of clean up when you're finished and Ta Da! An impressive display of happy plants!
We have made up containers at the nursery, in which you can buy and jump right to the last step of "an impressive display of happy plants!"
Or....you can put together one of your own. :)
Here's a bit of a list of suggestions - just suggestions, there are no rules in gardening. That's my philosophy anyway -
Heuchera - pronounced Hooo - krrr - ahhh (that was just fun to spell out)
many different varieties available:
Gaultheria procumbers - Winterberry
Cupressus macrocarpa goldcrest - Lemon Cypress (slight lemon scent)
Vinca minor - Periwinkle Vine ( my personal favourite :) )
And a few more ideas/suggestions:
- Osmanthus Holly - varigated leaves
- Pieris 'Little Heath' - dwarf and compact
- Autumn Fern - new growth bronze/coppery pink
- Black Mondo Grass - dramatic and compact
Here's how it can look put together....but remember 'no rules' just do what you love.
