After 10 years designing landscapes for my clients, part of which includes container planting, I'd like to think I've come up with a few pretty good ideas. But I'm not alone--I happen to have a ton of talented friends who have some awesome ideas of their own! If you're looking for some inspiration for your fall container plants, check out these ideas: Genevieve Schmidt: On Gen's blog, North Coast Gardening, she shares an idea from a client for an awesome autumn combo! I fell in love with that pic; you will, too. Fern Richardson: Fern has some great suggestions for combining herbs with fall flowers over at Life on the Balcony! She's a smart one, that Fern. Christina Salwitz: I found a great fall combo on Christina's blog Personal Garden Coach--what I like about this is that it focuses on foliage rather than flowers, and can be at home both in a container or in your perennial bed! Nice to have options. Helen Weis: Helen has a thriving Oklahoma landscape design business, Unique By Design, and her container plantings are simply stunning! Check out this fall topiary using pumpkins--I absolutely adore this idea. Rebecca Sweet: Rebecca loves ornamental grasses, just like I do, and in this post at Gossip in the Garden, she gives examples of how to use them not only in your beds but in containers, too! Lynn Felici Gallant: Lynn's container planting business, Indigo Gardens, is smashingly successful, and you can understand why when you look at pics like this one. All the things about fall planting that I love so much! Barbara Wise: This wonder woman recently completed 365 Days of Container Gardening. I love this hayrack planter full of gorgeous autumn plantings--I may have to recreate on my balcony this month! I'd love it if you posted some of your fall garden pics on my Facebook page--this is such a fun time of year in the garden!
