Every year around Mother's’ Day I make up my containers which I fill with flowers to enjoy all summer. I have perfected this over the years and I really think I have a winning formula when it comes to pots full of color and non-stop flowers. I thought I would share my approach and ideas to creating beautiful containers:
I went for an orange and white theme this year, I started both Begonias and Calla Lilies from tubers in the greenhouse rather than buying them at the garden center as this means I get to select colors from a much larger selection. I bought Calynopsis, Dahlias and Jasmine from the garden center. Calynopsis is a stunning plant with balloon-like flowers that are prolific bloomers all through the summer and add such an interesting contrast to the other plants.
Let the warm weather begin!
