Blooms for the Spring & Summer

This sun loving planter is a fantastic example of how you can mix blooming plants (such as early spring blooming pansies or other later summer bloomers) with tons of foliage as well as herbs and vegetable plants to create a container garden that is full of colour, texture and summer love!!

{Feel free to substitute any of these plants, especially the blooming ones if it’s too late in the season for Pansies. Other options could include Gerbera Daisies, Chrysanthemums, Heather, Lavender or Alyssum.}

We’ve added in the tallest plants in the middle to create a walk-around planter that looks great from all angles! If your planter is against a wall, then you could put the taller plants in the back, and work your way forward. Lovely Ivies spill down out of the planter and soften the edge, creating interest.
