Does your garden lack as much color as mine during the winter? I this post I am going to show you how styling a winter country garden with crates can revive a dull space.
A few months back I blogged about how I was preparing my pots for spring and using the lasagne bulb effect. Since then my pots have been sitting dormant with the bulbs snuggled neatly inside the soil until they are ready to rear their pretty little heads in the spring.
For me, a wasted space is a wasted opportunity and the front porch just wasn’t appealing enough to welcome friends and family. Naturally, I had to design some sort of display.
I wanted to make use of my pots but I really am not a fan of the winter pansy. Red is a no-no for me when it comes to flowers and photography, and the deep purple colors on offer are again just not to my taste. I know what I like and I like simple, clean and elegant.
I went on the hunt for some cheap, long lasting winter flowers and spotted a family of bellis. The winter daisy. I knew these were the potted flowers that I wanted and mixed them with Heather and Ivy on top of my existing planters. Just perfect for adding a little extra warmth and protection to my spring flowers.
I grabbed various wooden crates from the shed and used them as plant stands.
How do you like my display?
My Husband says it looks a lot like a florist front but luckily he approves!
