Planting the Ornamental Pots(4 Seasons)

Planting the Ornamental Pots(4 Seasons)

Winter.Spring.Summer.Fall.   Winter.Spring.Summer.Fall. Winter.Spring.Summer.Fall.

How often does the season come and go and we miss the opportunity to change out presentation pots.

Seasonal changes can be as easy as pop it out then pop it in (prep work like having a sheet wrapped around the base of our pots and urns as we change out plants make a difference when cleaning up.

For winter we have trees like the Acer Palmatum Sango Kaku (Coral Bark Japanese Maple) and Fagus Silvatica (European Copper Beech)

The woody ornamentals that display through the winter are the Cornus sericea – Redosier Dogwood, Red Osier Dogwood and the yellow variety as      well Cornus sericea ‘Flaviramea’.

Evergreen kings for our fall and winter pots are the Hinoki Cypress group and the very slow growing ornamental evergreens such as Montgomery Blue Spruce and the not so slow growing, Cedrus Deodora aurea.

There are many more available options, based on the size of the pots and the available surrounding space.

An inexpensive option for these pots are small ornamental grasses. The only concerns are heavy snows, high winds and these plants won’t be as easily transplanted in the spring. NOTE: Grasses will only last into the end of February as ornamental options.

Research on the internet can give you pictures of many of these items, until I post the coordinating photos.

Good luck and enjoy the changing colors of our trees. Go leaf collecting and bring the outside in.
