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!
