Winter Container Gardens Warm Up Small Spaces

There’s always room for at least one container garden. A small courtyard, patio, balcony, or simply the front door step all offer the opportunity to add a splash of color.

A tall but slender pot has a far greater presence than a wimpy short one and since we are less likely to sit outdoors in the cooler months, it is important to have your designs where they can be appreciated–at eye level. If the container itself isn’t large, then consider raising it on a pedestal, small table, or even an old chair.
