Add a bench and several planters. Use different-size planters to vary the display.
They make quite a show, especially when you pot up several matching planters. A dilute solution of liquid fertilizer every three weeks in spring and summer helps the show continue. Don’t overwater!
Hanging foliage adds interest and is effective both in pots and window boxes. The eye-catching “Silver Falls” Dichondra looks great with pink flowers. Also, try the yellow “Creeping Jenny” Lysimachia.
The foliage is as great as the early-spring flowers. Float the blossoms on water for a great display.
Plant large groups of deer-resistant Astilbe for a mass effect. More is better when it comes to this perennial. Add ferns for a great effect.
You can plant both blue and white. They look great with the round, purple flowers of the deer-resistant perennial Allium.
Kids think the flowers look like broccoli before they turn pink in late summer.
