In The News: Contain the Excitement

Since I'm one of the lucky ladies who benefits from a year-round growing season here in the San Francisco Bay Area, it's easy to forget that other gardeners, especially those in the Midwest, aren't so lucky. Long, harsh winters often kill some perennials, and the six-months-or-less growing season is often spent in a harried planting state, trying to cram in as many plantings and colors as possible. Connie Price writes in her article "Contain Yourself," from the Minneapolis Star Tribune, about ways that gardeners can supplement the color and variety of perennial gardens by using trendier and more colorful plants in their container gardens.

Hanging containers and oversized terra-cotta pots are great ways to add some punch to your back porch or front doorway, but, as Price relates, it's sometimes hard to get the right mix. With this in mind, she enlists the help of three nursery owners to help gardeners get the most bang for their container-garden buck. You'll definitely want to check out the article, especially since there's a video tutorial and slideshow of containers included.
