Container flowers can add terrific color to your patio, deck, and walkways. The beauty they provide is relatively easy to create and requires a small effort to maintain.
- Select your container
- Use an amended potting soil
- Choose complimentary flowers and greenery with varying heights
- Maintain with consistent watering, dead heading, and an inexpensive fertilizer (nitrogen rich and similar to Miracle-Grow)
Flowering plants that tend to do well in containers placed in sunny spots include Geraniums, Petunias, Alyssum, Mums, Zinnias, Verbena, and Heliotrope, to name a few. Combine these with trailing vines and tall ornamental grasses.
" I must have flowers, always, and always." - Claude Monet
