Gardens - Container Gardening
Cheery containers that herald spring
Start your pots early with bulbs, branches and hardy blooms
Branches cut from the garden add height and drama—for containers viewed from all sides, place them in the middle; for those viewed from the front, place them at the back. Hardy ivy (Hedera helix spp.) creates a soft, billowy effect around the edge of a container and lasts from early spring to winter. Ferns, grasses and other small perennials add texture and can be planted into the garden later in the season.
