It Has Been a Fun Winter for Our Potted Gardens

Winter Potted Garden by The Contained Gardener

  • winter 2011-2012

Flowers in this photo include Calendula, Allysum, Petunias, Pansies and Dusty Miller. The grass in the back pot is Purple Fountain Grass that our client did not want us to cut back. It is usually cut back in January.

With the somewhat mild winter in the Old Pueblo, our winter flowers have done very nicely. We are not going to be trying to change out the flowers for the summer until late April and throughout May. You want to make sure that you are providing your winter flowers with enough water as the temperatures heat up this month. Give any leggy plants a good haircut and be sure to keep up with a bi-weekly water soluble fertilizing.

Plants in this pot include Cordyline, Amazon Dianthus, Allysum, Ornamental Kale, Pansies.
