Perhaps it’s time to freshen up your containers for fall.

Take a close look your container. If it’s looking tired — or you’re just plain tired of it  — then it’s easy to change.

Liven it up with Icicle pansies, ornamental kales and cabbages, asters, ornamental grasses and a few small gourds or pumpkins. Add some herb plants for foliage interest and voila!, you have a new look that will carry you through to the first frost.

Garden centres are beginning to stock new plants for fall containers and the selection is good right now.
