Winter Containers to get you through…

Deborah Silver of Detroit Garden Works recently sent me a whole collection of beautiful winter containers that she and her company  have put together for their clients.  I plan to save many of them as they will be perfect inspiration to share come next Christmas, but I wanted to show you some of those that you could put together, even now, that can satisfy for a couple more months.

Willow branches and forsythia are starting to show up at the floral sections near me….as much as it is a welcome site from what has been a particularly painful winter here in N.E., it feels a bit early…don’t you think?…really – it’s not even February yet.   Well, at least it gives us a chance to change up any holiday containers to something a little more springy even if it is not likely that it will be uncovered by snow and ice anytime soon…(at least in my corner of the world).

I put this together to help get into the mood.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
