Though it’s very much still the wintertime in Salt Lake City, Utah, I constantly find my thoughts wandering toward Spring! I’ve already begun planning my garden, ordering my seeds, and in a few weeks, I will begin seed-starting! One of my favorite gardening projects for Spring is coming up with a few really impressive Spring container gardens. If they’re done correctly, Spring container gardens do a wonderful job of brightening up a porch, patio, or in some cases, even a window box. Get prepped for Spring with a few of these really amazing spring container ideas.
Spring Container Ideas
Welcome Spring to your home with a mixture of bright geranium, calibrachoa, and sweet potato vine. A dramatic container garden like this would look fantastic framing the entrance to your home. Not only does it look beautiful but the geranium has a wonderful odor!
You might have to wait until a bit later in the Spring to plant things like strawberries or herbs in container gardens, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t worth it! Spring container gardens such as these will look beautiful even into the Summer months. I recommend planting transplants in containers instead of starting from seed if you are looking for something that bears fruit quickly.
When I think of Spring floral arrangements, the first thing I think of is tulips! For a spring touch that cannot be beaten, plant a variety of tulips in a container garden. I love the added visual appeal of the bright blue planter as well as the beautiful white daisies. Dig up your tulips after they’ve died and plant them elsewhere for flowers next year!
Speaking of bulbs, how great do these daffodils look nestles amongst a variety of Marigolds, azaleas, and lily of the valley? See if you can’t fill all of your window boxes with these killer pairings. Just looking at all of that yellow makes me happy.
Spring garden containers don’t have to be large and expansive, sometimes they’re just as charming when small! Fill a tin bucket or even an Easter basket with pink tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths. I’d love it if I could recreate these for my Easter brunch, they’d look absolutely wonderful as centerpieces.
