There will be a general meeting and free presentation on “Container Gardening” by Paul Zammit on July 12 beginning at 7 p.m.
Your spring garden containers don’t always need to include tulips and daffodils for a pop of colour. Pair yellow and white primroses with pink hellebores.
Choose interesting foliage for container plants for shade. Use a combination of leaf shapes and textures to add beauty to a shady setting.
Before you think about what plants for container gardening, consider what garden pots you have on hand, what needs replacing and what you need to acquire.
For front porch planters, the best-looking summer containers are filled to the brim with plants that feature bountiful flowers and interesting foliage.
Designing a beautiful winter container is more about artfully arranging cut branches than growing colourful plants in your outdoor planter.
