Container Gardening: I

This early spring weather has made our lawns look fantastic. They are lush and green, making now the perfect time to start thinking about adding some vibrant color to the rest of the yard. We have so many options at our disposal for beautifying, but my one of my new favorites is container combination pots and baskets.

Container gardening is an easy and inexpensive way to enhance your living space. With just a few well-placed pots, you can create a stunning visual impact! They are also easier to create and maintain rather than being on your knees while planting and weeding in the ground. Another feature is their portability; if a container needs a little more shade or light, just move it to where it needs are met. Also, when we get the threat of frost, you can simply move into your garage.

We have culled the best “recipes” from numerous sources and have outstanding selections this year! Since there are too many to mention by name, be sure to stop by and take a look at what we have for you. BUT, do not limit yourselves to our combinations. The possibilities are ENDLESS…..You can make some unbelievable creations…. limited only by your imagination! Uncle John’s has a huge array of plants for you to choose from; all you need is a color scheme and an idea. Next week I will give some tips and ideas so that you can make the best combos ever.
