Spring is here, and it’s time to start thinking about ways to enhance the beauty of your outdoor living spaces. Container gardening is an excellent way to do just that! By utilizing containers in various areas like the front porch, walkways, patios, fence lines, outdoor living areas, and driveway, you can transform your space into a colorful and vibrant oasis.
At Hinsdale Nurseries, we believe that creating an impressive container garden is as simple as following a recipe. First, select a container that complements your outdoor space, decor, or aesthetic. Our ceramic pots arrive in late April and are a great choice for any container gardening project.
Next, choose plants for your container with similar growing requirements, such as water, nutrients, and sunlight. This is crucial for providing an optimal growing environment for each plant in the container to thrive. Great designs include a tall plant (thriller) to add height and drama, a strong statement of form and color, plants that fill the space hiding the soil (filler), and a plant that weeps over the edge of the pot (spiller) for a cascading effect.
Finally, use soil that matches the plants you are growing. This will provide the necessary nutrients and support for healthy plant growth. By following these three fundamental steps, you can create stunning container gardens that provide a beautiful environment for your plants to thrive.
