An Instant Garden Solution
You’ve planned your landscape, spent months choosing your plantings, and something doesn’t take. What to do?
A bare area in a garden space can be fixed by dropping in a pot of blooms, fruits or vegetables. Pots allow for a more fluid and adaptable gardenspace, making it easy to change to seasonal needs and aesthetic choices. You can place potted plants in places where the soil is unsuitable for a particular variety, and if you have a small terrace or balcony, you can add scale with potted climbers such clematis. The options are endless.
To keep your potted plants healthy, even if they don’t need replanting, remember to replensih the soil each year. Remove 2-4 inches of soil and avoid harming fragile feeder roots. Refill with fresh soil mixed with slow release fertilizer.
