Pirl, a member from DG saw my message that I had posted wanting ideas how to elevate container plants on my breezeway and she came up with these articles written by Steve Silk from Ct. who was an Editor and photographer for Fine Gardening. He has his own blogspot now. Just google his name and you'll find several articles written by him and his blogspot. His idea of how to stage container plants is more on a larger scale than mine would be but one can gear it to your own space confinements. He also wrote an article called Thrillers, fillers and spillers that I found interesting and I think will benefit container gardeners. It certainly gave me inspiration how I could use certain plants in my containers. Hope it will help other gardeners as well. I'm sure there are many other articles he has written for Fine Gardening. I love his use of color in pots and in patio furniture.
