Winter Containers

Cut evergreen arrangements can last all season and are a great contrast to Michigan’s snowy winter. Patty Watkins offers workshops throughout the Arts & Greens Holiday Market on how to make your own evergreen arrangement. Please see our events page for more information.

When planning a container garden space, look for the Big Three of garden design:

Thrillers: Tall or spikey plumes of color
Fillers: Rolling mounds of colors & texture
Spiller: Trailing habits of various shapes

When selecting your plants, make sure to look for plants that are best suited for the sun exposure of your home. Be aware that not all plants require the same watering. Test the soil with your finger to see if there is enough moisture or if a drink is needed. Don't hesitate to ask us for our best recommendations!
