3 Easy Tips for Autumn Containers
1. Ensure proper drainage.
It’s important to make sure water has a way to drain from your pot so roots don’t get oversaturated. Whether you’re using a traditional container or repurposing a piece—like the washtub and vintage ice cream freezer seen above—make sure to create holes in the bottom if the container does not already have them.
2. Go bold when combining colors.
Autumn is a great time to bring in bright colors like red and orange that play off the changing leaves in the surrounding landscape. Above, vivid red geraniums and green foliage make for a popular pairing.
3. Create visual interest with varying heights and diameters.
In addition to color, size and shape are an easy way to create contrast between containers. Try grouping yours in sets of three for an easy, interesting display.
