Winter Container Tips for Beginning Gardeners
Don’t let outdoor containers go to waste. Creating beautiful winter containers is easy, even if you don’t have much of a green thumb or even much time to spend in your garden. Simply spend an afternoon and give your containers a little color. On a cold, overcast day in November, this color will really be appreciated, and you’ll be glad you did it!
The easiest approach to colorful winter containers is to fill them with pansies. These perennials will greet you with blooms all throughout the autumn months until they are blanketed with snow. After a few weeks of hiding under the snow, their blooms will reappear to show off their full color well until early spring. Generally and based on moisture levels, you only have to water these low-maintenance plants every other week. Now that doesn’t sound to tough, right?
