I have a great wall planter that my friend Pamela gave to me. It’s shallow, and doesn’t have a drainage hole, so during the summer it normally gets planted with succulents. This past season I tucked in some Erodium reichardii that I had from a previous project, and that sweet, spreading alpine geranium is still looking fairly good in December. I wanted to make the planter a bit more cheerful as we head into the cold and gritty part of winter, however, so today’s post is a reminder that it’s never to late to refresh a container planting!
If a container can be left outside in the winter without damage, consider placing a new plant or arrangement there frequently. In the cold season we need all the reminders of growth we can get.
