If you enjoy container gardening, be sure to tune into Grow with KARE, locally on channel 11, at 6 p.m. Friday and at 9 a.m. Saturday, to watch Michelle Mero Riedel talk with Belinda Jensen and Bobby Jensen about container gardening.
This appearance was prompted by an article called “10 Container Masterpieces,” that ran in the November/December issue of Northern Gardener. In it, Michelle designed, photographed and described 10 gorgeous container combinations. She also gave some really smart tips for planting and maintaining container gardens. My favorite: Bigger containers are almost always better — both for design impact and for keeping plants healthy.
The article was inspiring, and it inspired my friends, Larry and Julie, to give “masterpieces” to some of their friends for Christmas. Just yesterday, I picked up my plants to make container No. 1 (click on the PDF to see it). What a great gift idea!
