We’ve been having rain and storms though most of fall, winter and now in the begging of spring. I’m not exaggerating when I say that it’s been raining almost every day which of course feels a bit depressing. So. Today i defied the weather and planted up a few containers in the front entrance. It’s always a good idea to decorate areas of the garden you see on daily basis. That way you get to enjoy your decorations often.
A trick when mixing different plants in the same group of containers is to stick to 2-3 colors. In this case the deep purple of the Pansy is mirrored by the Heuchera in the back.
Another good trick to keep in mind is to place bright colors at the back of the container. Dark colors blooms tent to disappear into the background if put in the back.
