About this deal
Now you need to think about water and fertilizer. It is good to mix a slow-release fertilizer into your soil. Osmocote is a well-known slow release fertilizer. We also offer the Algoflash Basacote 6-month slow release fertilizer as well as AlgoPlus liquid fertilizers to keep your planting going throughout the season. Designers generally use one of four color schemes: analogous, complementary, monochromatic or polychromatic. To get the full look you see here, you’ll need a lot of plants. Each of the two 55-inch planters above holds about 50 plants. For instant gratification, start with 4-inch pots of some of the showpiece plants, such as the trailing petunias and geraniums. Fill in around them with more economical flats of vinca and sweet alyssum. Choose your planting medium. For containers, you will want to use a light potting mix with good drainage. Often a soil-less mixture is best; they offer no nutrient value, but the "soil" will not become compacted strangling the roots. Plus, you have the added benefit that they are lightweight and free from soil-borne diseases and weed seeds. Shape or Form is the habit of a particular plant. Is it round, conical, weeping or trailing, upright or spreading? It is the shape and habit that help you create a strong framework for your planting. In any garden - and the container garden is no exception - you need a focal point. An upright plant will give you vertical interest and your eye will be drawn to it first. Trailing plants off the edge of your planter will soften the edges and create a more finished look.
Texture of plants is divided into three categories: fine, medium and course. Textural contrast can be even more effective than color contrast. Plants that are described as fine in texture are those that are quite soft and easy on the eye, often having many delicate flowers such as lobelia or baby's breath. Medium-textured plants tend to have some distinct shape such as geraniums or flowering tobacco. Coarse plants are those with very distinct textures such as ornamental cabbages or large begonias. Have a look at these ideas and see what you can to for your front yard. 1 Welcoming Front Walkway with GardenCreate a bold display by combining trailing blues and yellow with columnar spires and feathery foliage. Use your accent plants in the center with complementary plants surrounding it and trailing herbs or lobelias softening your edges. Polychromatic - includes colors from all around the color wheel using green foliage as a harmonizer. That said, if you cannot stand the thought of losing it, don’t put it out front! Been there, done that. Analogous - consists of two, three or four colors that are neighbors on the color wheel, such as blue-green, blue, blue-violet and violet. This will create a mood that is peaceful and gentle. It is best to choose plants that have similar needs. For instance, you would not want to plant Impatiens with the sun loving Zinnia. So look for plants with like needs. For sunny locations and some shade solutions, herbs are your perfect plant. Adding herbs will add texture and scent. They are good edge fillers and, depending on the herb, can offer a trailing effect.
We can put all sorts of creative decor, plants, garden art, and furnishings out, but, if thieves are going to remove them, it’s not worth it. While it’s not a favorite topic, when it comes to creating welcoming front yard and porch, one of the biggest obstacles can be theft. There is no rule about which plants are for containers and which are not. As long as you provide the basic needs for plants - enough room for its roots, water, nutrients and sun or shade - any plant will work in a container. So be creative! Plant what you like. And remember, your local nursery will help you with what plants will thrive in your area. When all the plants are in place, fill in around them with potting mix and water thoroughly to help settle the mix around the roots. So, keep this in mind when making choices. It’s not always possible to stop it but super heavy items and affixing things in place can slow down the bad guys.
