Colorful Planters for the 4th of July!


If you are like me, you enjoy celebrating the 4th of July.  I like to decorate the outside of my house with flags and other patriotic decorations.  My favorite way to decorate my back patio is to use combinations of red, white and blue flowering plants in a container.

Here are a couple of my favorite combinations for a fun 4th of July planter:

Planter#1:

Red Geranuims

White Alyssum

Planter #2:

Blue Ageratum

White Petunias

Red Salvia

When planting your new container, don’t forget to use a good quality potting soil.  After planting, water the container thoroughly.  Also consider adding a slow release fertilizer to the soil.

Have a great 4th of July weekend!
