Brighten the Winter Landscape with Container Gardens

EXCERPT

But sometimes landscapers need a pop of color to spice up their winter gardens. Tide yourself over during the season of landscape maintenance with bright container gardens for the home and garden.

Plant Trees in Container Gardens

Most trees planted in container gardens will eventually need repotting, but many species thrive until they outgrow their containers. Create focal points on patios, in courtyards, and even in the house by planting saplings in large pots. Make sure your chosen container is large enough that the tree can grow and wide enough to insulate the roots. Always make sure your container provides adequate drainage before planting your tree. Good plants for container gardening include:

  • Hollies
  • Evergreens
  • Boxwood
  • Dwarf camillas
