Add a Splash of Color Any Time of Year
There’s no better way to decorate your indoor or outdoor space than with a container garden. These miniature gardens consolidate all of your favorite plants in one decorative container that you can conveniently place anywhere. The best part about container gardens? You can customize them depending on the season! If you’re considering starting your own seasonal container garden, here are some of our favorite container garden ideas!
Our favorite items to grow in summer container gardens are herbs. If you’re like us and start your summer mornings sitting on the balcony with a cup of tea, you’ll love the addition of a container full of fragrant and ornamental herbs. Basil, cilantro, mint, oregano, and parsley thrive on a sunny balcony and provide fresh ingredients for all of your favorite summer dishes.
Greens like cabbage or kale are sturdy ornamentals that can handle harsher weather and feature some classic autumn colors. Dusty miller can add a splash of white to complement the red and brown tones of a fountain grass. You can always add a little pumpkin or Halloween-themed decoration to your fall container to truly celebrate the season.
Yes—you can even decorate with a seasonal container garden in the winter months! Beautiful winter greens shine bright and can add some new textures to your space. Silver feather grass and switchgrass have tall, thin bodies that are excellent at deflecting snow. Purple coneflowers, sedum, and black-eyed Susans also stand strong through the snow and even attract overwintering birds. Of course, you can also choose a more traditional winter arrangement for your porch or foyer, spruced up with spruce tops, pine, and colorful branches for a taste of the holidays!

Vibrant spring colors are great at attracting pollinators and hummingbirds, adding some excitement to your space. Early-season pansies, ranunculus, and daffodils are always great spring container garden ideas. They offer fun splashes of color against a white or plain-colored balcony. Versatile flowers, like nemesia, come in many forms, making them another excellent container addition.
