December can be filled with snow and mud – we garden addicts are needing a garden-fix in a bad way. Creating some amazing container gardens to display in a sunny window is a must. Try planting these amazing poinsettia ball containers which I originally spotted at the Chicago Botanic Garden greenhouse.
Make the balls small or large and give your holiday guests something creative to talk about for the holiday season.
- Find or make a garden container that has holes on the bottom and sides (see photo right of an example)
- Place poinsettias gently in the container holes.
- Fill with container potting soil.
- Top with more poinsettias.
- Water well and hang.
Happy Holidays! Enjoy the holiday season from all of us at Jung Seed to all of you!!
