Container gardening, using pansies and other perennials is a fun, low maintenance way to bring color into your garden year round. Pansies and Viola dianthus are just the perfect bedding plants to provide color in your garden throughout Autumn, Winter and well into spring. They both ideally suit tubs, pots, borders or surrounds, and require little, if any, daily dead-heading to maintain them at their vibrant flowering best. Pansies will fade over time but both will provide color year around.
To compliment pansies and violets, some good bedding for your plants would be geraniums and magnolias. Geraniums come in an array of colors and grow quite fast; the best time to plant them is during late summer through early fall. Geraniums command the best color of all the container plants so planting them in groups of twelve or more will help them contrast with the potted plants in the bed. You’ll be rewarded with magnificent spring blooms from these plants. Plant one or two per pot and hang them up in hanging baskets, small trees or other arrangements to frame your garden.
The container plants you use for your beds will greatly enhance the look of your landscape and overall satisfaction of your container gardening experience when you’re done. A good choice of bedding geraniums will bring a bright pop of color over time and help you establish a spring pattern that you can follow year after year. Geraniums also are very easy to grow and provide an abundance of blooms throughout the year.
The best bedding plants for your vegetable garden will depend on the climate where you live. Some are best planted in colder months because they don’t need to have their roots penetrate the ground as deeply as those that are planted in warmer months. Annual varieties should be planted as seedlings in the fall. If you are planning to try winter bedding plug plants, plant them in late autumn and keep them well watered until the following spring.
The best bedding plants for your vegetable garden should be selected based on the location in which you will be planting them. It is important to determine whether the area will receive full sun or will need to be shaded during the summer months. It is equally important to plant them away from existing plants so that they do not compete for nutrients. Potted annuals are generally a good choice if you are just planting seeds and have available space in your yard.
One of the easiest and most rewarding ways to introduce container gardening into your diet is to use bedding plants. You can choose from an assortment of plants including, but not limited to, annuals, perennials, bulbs, shrubs and even herbs. The container plants you choose should be fast growing and not too woody. Slugs and snails can wreak havoc with your bedding plants if they take up residence in the container. In order to ensure a healthy environment for your container garden, you should consider purchasing some type of container soil which will allow your plants to develop properly.
A great way to introduce plants in to your planting area is by using summer bedding plants. There are many benefits to using these types of plants in your containers. Summer bedding plants are easier to maintain when they are young and when they are small. When plants are young, they are not able to bear fruit or take root quickly. Planting these types of plants early in the year will ensure that they will get the best growing conditions possible when they are young. They will also provide an ample supply of food during the winter months when you may need it.
One important tip to remember when planting your container garden is that you should always use potting soil. This potting soil is designed to allow plant roots to have access to each other and to easily attach to the sides of your container. The benefits of using a potting soil include; if you decide to move your plants around the garden then they will have a better chance of survival. Plus, if you decide to transplant your plants then your container soil will be able to absorb all the water and nutrients out of the new pot and return them to their normal healthy state.
