Fall Container Gardens
Add a splash of color to your fall garden with a few fresh containers.
You can purchase some ready made planters from your local garden center or create a bit of fall floral beauty of your own.
Select plants that love the cooler fall temperatures or reach their peak floral display in fall.
I am using rudbeckia for a vertical accent. Popping in ornamental mustard and kale for filler and finishing off with pansies.
Or just perk up some of your weather weary containers like I am by adding a dianthus and aster for a fresh splash of color.
A bit more information: Once fall has passed consider trying a few winter containers. All the ingredients you need just might be outside your backdoor. So get out the pruners and take a walk through your yard and look for natures ornaments. Fruits like rose hips, winterberries, crabapples and others add color to the container. And the fluffy seedheads of ornamental grasses make a nice vertical accent and add a bit of motion to the arrangement. And if you have no backyard, take a trip to the garden center they will have plenty of items for your winter containers.
