Container Gardening

Flowering shrubs and perennials display great color in the spring, summer and fall, but the best flowering color will always be achieved with annuals. Annual color can be used in unlimted ways, from decorative pots on a porch to an entryway to create an inviting area to your home. Commonly referred to as container gardening, pots, planters and window boxes add color to areas where space is limited.

A patio, deck or balcony without containers can feel drab and dull. One advantage of container gardening is that it allows the use of annuals in unusual, unexpected combinations. Tropical plants, like Hibiscus, Mandevilla Vine, Citrus trees, Dracena and others that are not Kansas winter hardy in our climate but thrive in Kansas summer growing conditions, can be used in combination with more traditional annuals like Vinca, Begonias, Impatiens, Sweet Potato Vine, Springerii Fern and others. Annual planters will create a beautiful addition to your setting.

Container gardening can be modified as the seasons change. From Mums and Corn Stalks in the fall to Cedar, Holly and Spruce for the Christmas season, annuals can provide year round enjoyment.
