While there are local parks, arboretums and botanical gardens abound, much of your own masterpiece can be accomplished with a small container garden of your own. No frets if space is tight. A small terrace in suburbia, a balcony or rooftop garden in the city is the perfect nook for creating an artistic masterpiece with pots and containers filled with your favorite plant materials.
One of my favorite summer garden activities is planting and caring for the mix of containers dabbled throughout the terraces, the borders and plant beds. Containers prove the perfect fix for those in need of getting a boost with the 'green fingers' syndrome.
Are you feeling like those fingers aren’t quite green in the garden soil? Well, here’s a recent June post, Against All Odds, for an easy plant for your containers. It will knock the socks off the typical annuals that flood the retail stores. Plus, it comes back year after year without too much effort so give Amaryllis a go.
Share your favorite part of your masterpiece garden.
