I could give you a play-by-play, but on an almost-Wordless Wednesday I’ll just say this about why I love them: Inventive plant combos, cool containers and display ideas, great scale (from very-very big to very-very small), a mix of enthusiasm (by some) and restraint (in others), and steal-worthy ideas.
All seen in the mild climes of Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C. on the Garden Bloggers Fling. But most would be achievable in Toronto’s USDA Zone 5/Canadian Zone 6. (Click any image for the slideshow.)
See if you can tell which one lets you put a huge pot outdoors then haul it back in for winter – with little effort.
