Container gardening in the patio

I do a lot of container gardening in the patio. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know how much I depend on coleus for lasting color in the patio. Every  year, I experiment with different color combinations of coleus. Those vibrant colored coleus never fail to satisfy me year after year. 

I love this color combination of plants in the following container. Persian shield, variegated geranium, Japanese painted fern, creeping jenny and silver falls.

  1. I have read your blog in the past, fell in love with it, and then couldn't find it again. I am so glad to see you at Foodie Friday this week (and in the first position!) because I have found you once again and am now officially following you so as not to miss a single post. I am a big fan of your beautiful gardens, but this post particularly resonates with me because pretty much all I do these days in container garden. Your containers are so lovely and creative that I hope to find much inspiration here.

  2. Container gardening is now days a growing concept; from here we used to learn something better regarding container gardening. Most of the gardeners are used to apply several kinds of tricks to grow better and suitable gardens such as; terrace gardens, pot gardens, container gardening and many others. I hope we gardeners are also used to follow the instructions provided here in order to grow container garden in patio.
