Container Gardening in Winter

Wondering what to do with your window boxes, urns and planters now that the fall has passed?  Look around your yard.  Fresh cut greens and branches can easily transform your planters.  Juniper, Holly, Cedar even Rhododendron branches can be used.  Berries, grasses, white birch twigs, red twig Dogwood branches and seed pods too.  If you are lacking in the plant department you can always buy fresh cut greens at your local garden center or farm stand.   Think about adding Larger Christmas balls and bows to your containers too for a little extra flair and to fill those larger spaces.

To “plant” your bulbs in any drainage free container, begin by carefully placing a layer of stones or glass to a depth of about 2 inches for a small container/vase or about 4 inches in a larger container/vase.  Next place a layer of Paperwhite bulbs close to each other, roots facing down. Put a few stones or pieces of beach glass around and between the bulbs to anchor them in the container/vase. Leave the tops of the bulbs exposed. Finally, add water until the level reaches just below the base of the bulbs, but no higher (if the bases of the bulbs sit in water, they will rot).  Frequently check the water level as the roots begin to grow and add water when needed.
