Creative Container Gardening

If you think container gardening means a few pansies in a pot, think again! Today's container gardening incorporates gorgeous annuals, specimen shrubs, exotic tropicals, prolific perennials, classic ivy, architectural bamboo, natural stone, decorative grasses, etc. even if you don't have room for a garden! You can be as creative as you want whether you're a city dweller and pressed for space, or you're simply looking to dress up a patio or entry-way. By planting your choice of great plants into a container you can get the effect of a vibrant garden on a smaller scale without the demands of a large garden.

Container gardening is easy! Take note of the following and our friendly, knowledgable staff will help you with the rest.

Your Lighting Conditions

Decide where you want your container garden and take note of how many hours of direct sunlight it gets at what time of day. We will be able to determine the appropriate plants for your conditions.

Your Container

What are the dimensions of your container? Does it have adequate drainage? Is it the right color to accent your home? At Dykhof Nurseries, we have a huge selection of pottery for container gardening. We're sure we will have what you need.
