Having Fun With Pots
Having Fun With Pots
This is the time of year when winter starts to drag a bit. We long for spring, but have months to go. The weather is unpredictable, and the skies are frequently gray. Fortunately, there are creative activities that can lift our spirits, and one good place to start is with plants and pots. Here are some ideas for having fun with flowerpots.
Stack Pots For Draping Plants
Perhaps you’ve fallen in love with a plant that drapes, but you don’t want to install the hardware necessary for having hanging pots in the house. This is the time when stacking one pot on top of another will solve your problem and make an attractive indoor display. Note: the florist product called Cling is handy for making pots stick together. Ask about it in our front greenhouse.
Go Wild With COLOR!
Sometimes it helps to visually shake things up, and going nuts with colorful pots and plants can bring a smile to our faces on damp, gray days.
Choose a Pot For Seasonal Plants
Our greenhouse has a continual selection of lift-your-heart flowering plants. From spring primroses to the “shamrock” Oxalis, miniature roses and more, these usually come in small 4″ pots. Knowing this, you can choose a container that will hold and display these flowering plants in your house.
Plant Some Cat Grass
Choose a low container, fill with fresh potting mix and top with a thick layer of Cat Grass Seeds. It’s fun to watch them sprout and grow, and your kitty will love to chomp on them. If you don’t have a cat, do this for yourself. I know a woman who routinely plants regular grass seed in a pot at this time of year so that as it grows she can cut it with scissors, just to have that reminder of the summer fragrance of a newly mowed lawn.
Plan To Built A Pot Man This Summer
Using a stake and heavy wire, you can create a pot person in the garden. Some people have them sitting on a chair or bench, while others create them on a wall or even standing. Plan them at this time of year, when you have plenty of time to rustle up the pots and decide if you’ll use gloves and boots for hands and feet. Think about what you’d like to seeing growing out the head pot. The planning is half of the fun.
I’ll be showing more ways to have fun with plants and pots in the free Cabin Fever Cures Happy Hour I’m doing on Friday, February 10th. Register to watch it live, or look for the recording on the bottom of the Events Page later.
