Easy Autumn Container Garden
September 01, 2011

Looking for a fast and easy refresher for your container gardens? Transition into late summer/early fall with our simple recipe for success:

Take one 4.5" or 6" ornamental pepper plant and pair it up with one 4.5" or 6" chrysanthemum. Place a dracaena spike or other small ornamental grass in the center of the pot for height. Add a beautiful fall colored croton to the mix, a fern for texture, and a small pot of ivy to cascade. Voila! You have a quick, stylish container garden that will give you seasonal color well into October!
