Your container plantings are always so creative Kathleen. I love that Croton and the tan pot really sets off the bright colors of the other stuff. :)

Josephine is a beauty, indeed. And as one who gardens almost exclusively in containers, I never tire of reading about projects and ideas! I must see if I can lay my hands on a copy of that magazine.


I may make a special stop at Borders for a copy. My annuals are still sitting around waiting to go into my big blue container and I'm waiting for inspiration.

Kathleen, You are always very inspiring! I just planted three containers (I really need your touch!) of which I WILL NOT show a photo! ha. They really aren't done, but I couldn't wait to get started. ;-)

Must tell you that my Queen of the Prairie is looking rather stately this year! I'll post before too long.


I love these container posts! I love how you have 'Josephine' in the pot like that. Did you cut her back? Yours definitely looks much better than mine.
I also love the Croton container, really pretty!

Your container with the birdhouse and vine looks sweet. I like the way you put the colours together in the foliage container with the croton, and its pot too. I've had fun planting some annual containers, but wouldn't be able to overwinter perennials in pots. The magazine issue looks inspiring.

Sweet Bay

I agree that container gardening is an art and an under-practiced art at that. I love all of the containers you've shown so far. You have a real flair for it!


Your containers are all so lovely. I was actually planting some today and I was thinking to myself, "Hmmm, how would Kathleen arrange it?":)


You do have some excellent containers and if you recommend this magazine I'll get it. I am generally quite happy with their other publications! I've been surprised how happy clemmies are in containers...I think they like the drainage and I do keep their roots cool with a nice thick mulch! gail


That second image of Josephine is gorgeous. I love clematis!
