This can be the time of year to put your landscape to bed and forget about it, but maybe you don’t want to. Maybe you’re feeling a little bit fresh yourself with the cooler temps and want to add color for the winter months. Sure you’ve got evergreens in the plants beds and flowering crabs showing off their berries (lovely, by the way), but your impatiens have been frostbitten and your hanging baskets have been chucked for a few weeks now. What’s a plant-lover to do?
Get a fresh start! Get excited about WINTER container plantings! Keep those unbreakable pots out and let your imagination run free. Before garden centers close up, nab a few hardy evergreens and maybe a dogwood or two. Scour the woods for interesting branches and pinecones. Heck, make the kids come with! Just look at these great ideas here and here. Are they not awesome?? Among a few others, one of our suppliers has actual “recipes” for instant winter color and cheer. And just think…this time of year, no coming home to crazy-thirsty plants!
Very Happy Holidays to you and yours.
