2015 Garden Bloggers Fling

August 5th, 2015

The 2015 Garden Bloggers Conference was a whirlwind trip around the GTA looking at 30 plus gardens. One of the highlights for me was all the different containers that were scattered throughout the tour.

Here are some inspiring photos of containers and their use in different garden settings. The photos are about the actual container as much as they are about the plants in them. I hope you are as inspired as I was.

A brilliant idea against a brick wall that would look good in any front walkway.

Nice pop of colour in a shady corner.

These containers are like beautiful artwork just accented by the plants.

Have a listen to this episode of Down The Garden Path where I give a nice summary highlighting many of the must-see gardens on the tour.
