Container Gardening Love

July 23, 2014

Is there such a thing as a job as a container gardener? There probably is...if not, there should be, and I want to do that when I grow up. Which really is now

Summer container gardening is one of my favorite things. I really love planting flowers in flower beds, but I looooooove playing with different combinations and textures in containers. I don't usually follow any "rules" when I plan it out - I try to find color combinations that work together, look at the textures, then I look to see if they all require the same sunlight/water (that should probably be first, no?). 

1. Red Verbena
2. Pink Lantana
3. Blue Lobelia

I love the combination! I wanted bold and bright colors with a complimentary cool color. The lantana and verbena can stand up to the heat, and they're strong spreading flowers. So far the Lobelia has been such a pretty addition to the mix.

What do you think? Do you want to be a container gardener too??? Let's do it! :)
