From simple clay pots to decorative urns, and from old porcelain pitchers to trendy ceramic or recycled plastic cylinders, containers filled with lush flowers and greenery can be used anywhere and everywhere and should be!  Container gardening is trending and makes a statement in any interior or exterior use.  Gardens in small or large containers give you amazing flexibility both inside and outside your home or office because they are like mobile landscapes.

Whether they are used to feature a splash of color by your front door or as a centerpiece style cluster of color pots in a courtyard or on a porch, containers, whether simple or extravagant are an excellent way to beautify even the smallest of corners. Excellent for when exterior beds are removed due to drought or other conditions, or if you just need a fresh approach to landscape hues.

Container choices- This is where the fun starts!

Container gardening success starts with the container, and honestly it’s one of the most fun aspects of creating these planter-scapes! While the schemes and color palettes may vary from season to season, the containers are a permanent feature so be creative when you choose them. Remember, they can be used over and over again through the years with different plantings.

Look for containers with textures and colors that complement your architecture and decor. It’s suggested to utilize middle-of-the-road hues and let the plantings provide the pizazz, but in some situations, the containers themselves may want to be the show-stoppers and the plantings remain neutral. Groupings of three or four pots of variable sizes can create an attractive sense of scale along with providing a great opportunity to play with a wonderful variation in the proportions of the plants you will use in them. For example, your largest pot might have a taller foundation plant surrounded by flowers or sport more colorful foliage while a shorter, somewhat smaller container might feature a mounding arrangement, while a third might have groundcover gracefully trailing over its edges. Three distinct containers. Three distinct looks. Together, a sophisticated arrangement that together create a sonnet of hues.
