I do enjoy the change of seasons because it gives me the opportunity to be creative with planters again. Today I loaded up my truck and travelled to different homes creating fall planters. Awwwww I do LOVE my job.
Some of my favourite plants to use for fall planters are: Ornamental peppers, kale, mum’s, asparagus ferns, Sedum, asters and ornamental grasses. I usually try to choose mum’s and aster’s who have not bloomed yet. Ideally I choose ones that have one or two flowers just opening so I can see the colour….this way the blooms last longer. Here are a couple of pictures from last years planters. Have fun and play around with some combinations of your own.
