Can plant pots stay out all winter?
The best flower displays are like great fireworks shows – lots of color all at once and too much is never really enough. So when early bloomers die down, add some colorful annuals to continue the show.
I don’t grow tons of food and none of it in the ground but rather, in big planters to put it at easy reach for me, yet further from the bunnies.
If you’re not planting a tree or shrub in your pot, but just annuals like lots of us do, then you don’t need soil that’s two or three feet deep! Here’s a trick.
Herbs are a pretty and practical filler for pots. Low growers like oregano and thyme spill over the sides in a lovely way; while higher herbs like basil, mint and rosemary add some structure as taller companions to flowers.
