It's time to start planning your ... Summer Containers

Our spring gardens were planted early April and are thriving!! But now it is time for us to begin planning our summer container gardens! We love working with our clients to plant them stunning gardens that will make their properties pop! We love to play with different color schemes and work with different plant varieties. Our passion is to beautiful spaces with greenery and pops of summer colors!

Dreaming of Summer!

As we yearn for the long warm summer days and those perfect summer evenings where we can relax outside after a long day at work, Harding Botanicals is busy planning our summer plantings! These container gardens and planter beds are some of our favorites because we get to see them transform throughout the summer as they bask in the sun and grow a little each day.

Like many other designers, our recipe for container gardens is a filler, thrillers, and a spiller! Thriller: we usually like a statement plant like a hibicus, alocasia, grass, palms. Fillers we love to add pops of color: coleus, impatiens, dusty miller, cleome, fuchsia, lantana, begonia, caladium. Last but not least are the spillers: iopmea, calibrachoa, dichondra, ivy, petunia. 

Another thing to think about before planting is light! For direct sun planters we LOVE to use: ipomea, calibrachoa, dusty miller, dichondra, cleome. lantana. for our shady pots we use: coleus, impatiens, fuchsia, ivy, heuchera, caladium, ferns, begonia.
