My ‘Blue Rhapsody’ container garden has to be one of my favorites that I plant every year.
As a gardener, I’ve always had a passion for designing and planting outdoor containers.
Its the eleventh hour before the deadline so I appologize for the crap writing.
I know this is the most time consuming part of container gardening.
I try to water my containers in the morning to keep them from drying out from the midday heat(4) For your containers to reach their full flowering potential, they need to be fertilized.
To me, containers are an easy way to accessorize and customize my garden with pockets of color and my own creative expression.
Over the years, I’ve had some container successes (I was a 2011 & 2012 Fine Gardening Container Design Finalist) and some not so great, like being a bit too ambitious and planting over 75 containers one year in which I had to succumb to watering daily for months during a drought (what was I thinking! This year, I decided to keep my container count to about 50…still quite a few but alot more manageable.
