Finding the right combinationPublished 10:26am Friday, June 21, 2013
The possibilities are endless for combination planters.
Just ask Tony Hill, manager of Hill’s Gardens in Albert Lea.
• Use contrasting color and texture. Put a dark plant next to a light one, or put a delicate plant next to something more coarse.
• Size your plants. Don’t plant varieties that will get too big and overpower the planter.
• Plant something upright next to something trailing. This will create more depth.
• Don’t forget some plants like the sun and others prefer the shade.
“Have fun learning,” Hill said. “There’s no right or wrong way.”
