Planters and Gardens...Top Three Tips And Ideas!

   I think we may have Lift off! ... 


A tiny bit of summer may be on the way!! 


 If we can do this here in Wisconsin... We can do it anywhere!! You dont need to have a huge garden to create a focal point! With a bit of planning, You Can have a beautiful grouping of pots to frame a front door, or to make a miniature Pop of color! 
I love Creating a whole new atmosphere in a matter of a few hours!! ...


Tip #2
Just remember to start with great soil, good drainage, the right plants... and Have fun with textures! ...

Tip #2
When in doubt.. always put in more Plants than you think you need! ... You can also plant hanging baskets right in a larger container for instant color! Go for it!! (Or call Me!) :)


Tip #3
Pick a color theme for the year and repeat it through out the Garden... Physiologically the human eye likes to see repetition instead of chaos! 


Happy Gardening!  
~ Vanessa!


p.s. AND PLEASE ...DONT FORGET TO WATER!!
