    Choosing Fall Flowers for Container Gardening and Window Boxes

    Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

    You can replace and revive summer planting containers with fresh fall-flowering plants. Lowe’s shows you 5 colorful options for autumn containers and window boxes. 1. Pansies – Pansies have large single petals and come in blue, purple, maroon, white and yellow, as well as a mix of bicolors. These hardy flowers look great edging a container or window box because of their short stature and large cheery flowers. 2. Kale – Ornamental kale offers big, colorful, frilly leaves in white, purple, pink and green-blue. You need just a few plants to fill up a container or window box. Kales like the cool temperatures of autumn, and they’ll stand up to frost, too. 3. Asters – Dwarf varieties of asters grow 6 to 8 inches tall and are covered with fringed flowers in purple, blue, or pink with bright yellow centers. 4. Chrysanthemums – Chrysanthemums, or mums for short, are a fall favorite and a standout for containers and window boxes because they come in many different colors, like red, lavender, white, yellow, gold, russet and chartreuse. Mums come in double and single flowers, too. 5. Gourds and pumpkins – There’s no planting involved—just stack them into a container or mix them with plants. You can grow your own gourds and mini pumpkins, of course!

                Container Gardening for Beginners (3 tips for superb hanging baskets and pots)

                Thursday, May 5th, 2011

                Here’s three tips for creating superb container gardens www.simplegiftsfarm.com The first tip has to do with watering the container garden or hanging basket. Every time you water, water should pour out the bottom of the container. This means that all parts of the container are thoroughly irrigated and none of the roots will be allowed to dry out. If the soil has been allowed to dry out too much, and has shrunken away from the sides of the pot then the water will immediately pour out the bottom of the container and the soil will not be properly watered. The remedy is to either set the container in a large bowl of water to allow it to soak up or to water every half hour until the water no longer freely flows through the basket. The second major container gardening tip is to understand that hanging baskets and containers require a weekly feeding of plant food. Because nitrogen is the major engine of plant growth, and because it is water-soluble, every time we walked her we drive nitrogen out the bottom of the pot. This means that unless you replace the nitrogen with more plant food, your plant will struggle to grow and flower properly. The third tip is my personal preference for organic gardening plant food, and this is fish emulsion. In my 30 years of gardening experience, there is simply no easier or more effect if way to feed most of your container gardens and indeed, all gardens, then the liquid fish emulsion. These three gardening tips and gardening ideas are a few of
