I always think of garden containers as instant gardens. Consider using containers to herald in each changing season and dramatically dress up your front door and patio. Ultimately, a well-maintained container can provide lots of color and interest throughout the year. Early spring brings bright pansies, nemesia, and diascia, followed by the long-lasting colors of summer. In autumn, replant with low grasses, purple asters, and golden rudbeckia. The holidays and winter season unfolds into multicolored evergreens, red berries, and Dogwood stems.
