When a flower arrangement is completed by a florist, there is always the creative placement of taller blooms in your arrangement in one area while shorter blooms are placed elsewhere. This gives your bouquet that pleasing eye look and comfortable feeling. I concluded you could perform the same creative work with your container gardening flowers.
Why use just one size pot? Why not entertain the idea of using variable size pots in your flower containers. This will give your guests or friends a tremendous visual impact. The use of props hanging around your garage or garden will increase the visual concept of your container. I took the following steps in my garden by placing a tall container on a stump with a smaller container by its side and with the use of an old hand water pump placed behind the two giving a depth to the arrangements. I also placed a container or pot in front of the stump mixed with other flowers already planted in this garden. This resulted in a real visual and beautiful arrangement.
The use of old upturned empty pots, stacks of tiles or bricks or even a low table or old chair with other pots grouped around it makes quite an impression. While traveling around my area or other parts of the country, I found the placement of pots of flowers on the front stairway to be a good arrangement.
The use of intensely colorful flowers on each edge of the stairway to the door was quite a site indeed. A ladder or ladders can also be used to form a multi level plant stand.
A strawberry pot with small holes evenly distributed over the pot can make a dramatic container gardening flower visual .. The best looking selection in this situation is the use of ornamental grasses to make your point. I would start with a fountain grass in the top and follow it up with other grasses such as Blaze Little Bluestem Grass and Sweet Alyssum in the other openings of the strawberry or pocket pot. You could even plant berries for contrast.
I would make an effort to find a cup shape pocket pot rather than those with slits. It is much easier to deal with the cup shaped pocket as far as soil placement and moisture content than the slits. Its best to start the soil fill from the bottom and work up to the first tier pocket holes and then add the plants. It is easy to work with and provides an interesting view over regular container gardening.
