Containers and Spot Color

When we talk about “container gardening”, we often think of pots filled with plants.  But “containers” can be so much more than “just an enclosed space”!  For example, the gabion here is a simple wire enclosure that is holding rocks that were dug from this garden, but also is an artistic statement.  Containers are a way we can grow plants where there is no room to grow plants in the ground.  They can make it easier to maintain plants – just walk a few steps out the door to water the pots on your deck!  Children love growing things in containers!!

Containers provide one way to add color in any size space.  Color is one of the first things we notice when we look at plants.  Color spots, whether a plant in a garden space or the pot itself, provide a place for our eyes to stop and rest. The color can change our mood – think of great fall color on leaves on a grey rainy day!  And color, when used wisely, can convey the entire character (theme) of a garden space.
