I will be doing a program for Seniors on planting up pots and thought I should come here and ask what would be a lovely combination of plants to use? The pot will be given as a door prize afterwards. Please if you could include a picture along with the names of the plants to be seen that would be ever so appreciated. Please note I live in the Canadian prairies so the newest releases prolly won't be found here.
I'd love to see some with colourful petunias mixed with whatever as well as some that are a little more exotic.
I truly kick myself that I didn't take some pics of some of the gorgeous colourful plantings I've seen around town in the past couple of years (there were some that truly took ones breath away). One year in particular I remember our local spa had pots with petunias etc in it that was breathtaking...I think it had purple and pink with I can't remember what all else but I'd sure like to make something equally nice and I certainly will gladly eyeball non petunia plantings as well. .
Over the years I've made some lovely ones for myself but others haven't always turned out the way my mind's eye pictured they would so I come begging for ideas from the experts here.
