Beautiful Plants For Large Containers

Beautiful Plants For Large Containers – Containers are so versatile – often we design with a combination of plants, however, to add special interest for an overall display, consider including some large plants or special plants and grow them in a single pot or garden planter.

Create a distinct break between your patio or terrace and turn this into an outdoor room. This can be accomplished by incorporating large garden containers filled with just a single spectacular plant and then infilling with border plantings. More than just providing a view, the design is provided from the inside out.

Creating A Backyard Container Garden: How To Start? Decide how much space and time you want to devote to your new gardening project. Like most new endeavors, starting small is a good idea, and as you learn from experience you can grow and grow from one season to the next. If all you have is a patio or deck, consider what is referred to as ‘container gardening’. Look for things like a 5-gallon bucket or maybe a barrel or used wheelbarrow.

If you have more space, plant in raised to utilize some of the ground space. These are constructed with organic pressure treated lumber and often range in size from four feet wide, one foot deep and to as long as you would like (10 to 12 feet is most common).

Climbing Roses: Embellishment For Your Garden

Climbing Roses: Embellishment For Your Garden

Climbing roses grace the trellises of English tearooms and the archways of European gardens. Climbing roses, a meandering sibling of the more traditional rose varieties, provides a unique floral embellishment to a garden landscape. Many growers believe that no garden is complete without some ornamental climbing roses.

Growing climbing roses for their intended purposes presents some challenges. Since they are not actual vines, which we know cling to the sides of buildings, fences and other structures, they don’t have their own support structure that attaches to surfaces. It is the job of the grower to manipulate the rose to weave and snake appropriately for the dramatic affect that only these roses can create.
