Container gardens can provide a pop of color and interest…just like jewelry for your garden. Today, for this Project Design, we have some amazing designers/gardeners illustrating their ideas. We have regulars, Cindy and Annie, along with Debra from 5th and State, Kelley from Kelley and Co.and Janine from Happy Happy Nester.
Since I live in a 1920’s high rise apartment in San Francisco, my container gardening is limited. But my friend/client Melba (thanks, Melba) was just on vacation in Nantucket and took some great inspirational photos. I’m also including creative ideas that I spotted at Roger’s Gardens. So, let’s get started…
What makes these spectacular?
- two or more colors
- varying heights (including twigs and moss)
- lushly planted flowers
Pots Staggered on Stairs and Grouped Together
The alternating colors look great!
Can you see the plants in the metal toolbox on the table in this pretty dining vignette at Roger’s Gardens?
Look at the variety of herbs planted in an old iron garden chair…
Wine barrel planters have a rustic charm…
