This year, I decided to keep my container count to about 50…still quite a few but alot more manageable. Note: As of a few days ago my lovely Swan planter was a victim of a large tree limb and is no longer gracing my garden. This in an old picnic basket I’ve had for over 25 years ( a wedding present ) that I decided to use as a container this year. Posted by Brenda Addington & filed under Color in my Garden, Container design, Container Gardening, Graceful Containers, Herbs. Yes, my containers do keep me busy (that and my roses) especially when the weather doesn’t cooperate.
What a wonderful pleasure trip gazing at your incredibly, beautiful, inspiring, artistic containers. About Me!I have been a southern gardener for over 25 years and have learned a lot from so many wonderful gardeners over the years.


This journey of learning continues today, as I share my garden and hopefully inspire and help other gardeners.
Playing around with the different color combinations and textures of plants are fun and the choices are almost endless. By using a few container gardening basics and a little bit of TLC my containers provide be with big rewards throughout the spring, summer and fall.
I’ve chosen red trailing petunias to make a spectacular display in my large urn enhancing my entryway.
I have mine planted around a hummingbird feeder since the large red blossoms attracts butterflies and hummingbirds all summer. I try to water my containers in the morning to keep them from drying out from the midday heat. We at one time also had this sort of quantity, it is hard work but lessened when you have such a love for gardening. I’ve been blessed with a few rain showers lately though making this weeks watering a breeze.
I love that you use so many plants that others forget to try, like Red Ipomea with it’s new green leaves that age to red and give so much more depth to planters.


To me, containers are an easy way to accessorize and customize my garden with pockets of color and my own creative expression. There are several types of fertilizers to choose from, including powders, liquids, foliar sprays, manure teas, etc. I also love the look of your blue and white grouping, the basket with the kalanchoe, and …all of them!
The larger the container the more moisture it will hold thus the less often you will have to water.
My most foolproof method is using a slow release glandular fertilizer when planting and then about 6 weeks later a liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks to give my containers an additional boost during their growing season.  I use liquid fertilizer for my heavy bloomers (like petunias), and for my vegetable, shade loving and foliage containers I use Haven Brand Manure Tea, an organic fertilizer that these plants love.
