Container Gardens

Adorable planter overflowing with Euphorbia ‘Diamond Frost’ sitting on a discarded chair. Reuse and repurpose is my motto! ‘Diamond Frost’ is a gorgeous trailing perennial that blooms constantly year round. It’s hardy too: I didn’t cover it at all during our cold days this winter. I’ll have it for sale as soon as my suppliers have it ready.

I make custom container gardens using either your pots or pots I supply. I use the common ceramic, plastic, terra cotta, etc, and whimsical and unique pots I’ve found at flea markets and antique shops.

Let me know what you’re looking for, and I can make it for you! Email, Jeanni@rosesandgargoyles.com, or call/text, 386-310-9969.

Container Gardens

Good Saturday morning!

Looking for something to brighten up your porch or balcony? These pretty container gardens chock full of cool season annuals are prefect for that.

Give them sun/part sun and they’ll give you tons of blooms and fragrance till May or June. The containers are reusable, so I can repot them for you with warm season annuals when these quit blooming.  $15 each.

I’m at Alachua County Farmers’ Market till 1:00 today.

If you’re interested in the containers but can’t make it to the market, keep in mind that I deliver in the Jacksonville to Gainesville area. I’ll also create custom containers for you using either your existing containers or containers I supply.

Custom Container Plantings

These are custom containers I made for a client. Container 1 has Euphorbia, bush daisy, and garlic chives. Container 2 has Gomphrena “Fireworks,” white Mexican Heather, and marjoram. The urn has white Salvia and red Baby Sunrose.

So you might be thinking “hmm, why are there empty spaces in the containers? Shouldn’t they be chocked full of plants with no empty spaces?” The reason they aren’t chocked full is I use the same space design guideline when container planting as I do when designing garden beds: Design for the mature size of the plant.

The plants will grow quickly and all the empty spaces will be gone soon. But the container won’t be overloaded with plants that have to fight for nutrients and root space and water.

I’ll get my client to send me pics of the containers in a few weeks and I’ll post them so we can see how the plants are filling in.
