No garden is too small or too large for fabulous plantings in flowerpots. Now’s the time to plant them, and it doesn’t take long to get them started.
Pots give gardeners in small spaces room to grow. In large gardens, flowerpots are a great way to develop the detail and grow delicate plants that might otherwise get lost; pots focus the eye just as a frame sharpens the impact of a picture.
In gardens of any size, pots are important architectural elements: They might mark an entrance to a garden or march two by two up the front steps. They allow you to bring spots of garden color up onto a porch. Pots are stylish and sculptural, whether their design is avant-garde, traditional or whimsical. No matter what style you favor, they’ll always be fun.
