Get your creativity on by jazzing up your containers and hanging baskets for the winter. Just because we live in a place that gets a few weeks of tropical weather that our favorite annuals flowers actually like doesn't mean we can't fix up our containers for the bitter cold!
A few supplies to get you started:
- Weather proof container or hanging basket
- Potting soil
- Evergreen boughs: Douglas Fir, Spruce, Pines, Junipers, Cedar
- Small evergreen trees
- Decorative branches
- Dried seed pods
- Dried Flower heads (Sedums, Hydrangeas, Yarrow, Ornamental Oregano, Allium)
- Berries, Rose hips
- Dried grasses
- Any other seasonal decor to accent arrangement
*Remember to empty and store any terra cotta or delicate ceramic pots in a protected place for the winter to prevent cracking.
