Small containers are ideal for seasonal planting at home. They offer four different seasons of creative gardening. During all the four seasons you can change the plants in your containers frequently and add a tinge of glamour to your garden. Containers brimming with colourful flowers are a delight to your garden and act as a focal point.

Plants for Winter: During winter fill the container with evergreen plants. For a decorative display, all winter leave Springerii to dry in the container. Vinca and Ivy too last all winter. Woody plants such as Holly, Boxwood, Ivy Topiaries, Daphnes and small Conifers offer an attractive arrangement during winters. Red twig and Dogwood make a delightful display too. Spice up your entrance with these lovely plants during winters and let your guests go ga-ga about your gardening skills.

Plants for Summer: During summer, employ large containers with tropical plants such as Caladiums, Bananas, and Cannas. For a different look and feel plant Miniature Sunflowers, Ornamental Millets, Zinnias, and Celosia. If you are fond of the small containers, then plant Dahlberg Daisies, Zinnias, and Dahlias during summer.
