Fall Container Gardens

Posted:

Add a splash of color to your fall garden with a few fresh containers.

You can purchase some ready made planters from your local garden center or create a bit of fall floral beauty of your own.

Select plants that love the cooler fall temperatures or reach their peak floral display in fall.

Use plants like Swiss chard, rudbeckia or spike for vertical accents. Boost the color with asters, mums and frost tolerant annuals like ornamental cabbage, dianthus and pansies.

Add some interest with ornamental peppers and a bit of flavor with bok choy and decorative mustard.

I am using rudbeckia for a vertical accent. Popping in ornamental mustard and kale for filler and finishing off with pansies.

Or just perk up some of your weather weary containers like I am by adding a dianthus and aster for a fresh splash of color.
