......time to get those seeds going.
Kim actually started weeks ago by planting radishes, lettuce and onions in containers in the cold frame. Everything is up but the onions.
Here's a preview of annuals I planted for our front containers.
(not my pictures.....my plants aren't plants yet.)
Notice a pattern?
Last year when Mary Ann visited our garden she gave us the lovely book Container Gardening Through the Year by Malcolm Hillier. Reading that book has inspired me to attempt to limit myself to one color pallet this year.
From the book:
"Color is very much a matter of personal taste, but when planning designs for containers, an awareness of the mood color combinations create is important....red, orange, and yellow evoke a feeling of 'warmth'......warm colors are those the mind associates with the sun and a sense of well-being...."
Oh yeah, I like that.....a sense of warmth and well being.
Usually my front containers are willy-nilly and whatever I happen to like/have on hand.
Not sure what mood has been evoked from my past efforts; perhaps confused, bordering on psychotic.
I'll let you know how this idea turns out.
Are you trying anything new in gardening this year?
