Easter Container Garden Inspiration

The first official day of Spring is tomorrow (March 20th) and It’s almost time for Easter!

What better way to embrace the warmth and sunshine of Spring than by decking out your front porch with a cheerful container garden? Here are a few ideas to get you inspired...

 Here we planted a container with spring color (white alyssum, pink/rose snapdragons, and silver dusty miller).   We planted it in November, and look how lovely it grew in by April !

If you didn't begin planting by using seeds back in the winter, then it's not too late to plant a wonderful Spring or Easter inspired container if you use mature plants and flowers found in your local nursery.  Here are some plant suggestions:

  • Tall grasses & ornamental grasses such as:
    • Iris
    • Aztec Gras
    • Dracaena spikes
    • Spring flowers such as:
      • Geraniums
      • Petunias
      • Marigolds
      • Several kinds of Daisy, such as Gerber Daisy
      • Phlox
      • Leucojum
      • Daffodils

Get creative!   Feel free to continue and dress up any Spring containers with an Easter-theme, such as mixing in colorful Easter eggs or bunnies, or painting the containers themselves with Easter décor.  The more containers, the merrier!  Not to mention, more container gardens equal more hiding places for Easter eggs!  Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

    • Fill a traditional Easter basket with soil, or line  with  burlap first. Then plant your spring color inside, or arrange the plants inside still in their plastic pots to make the wicker last longer.   Note:Fill in the voids between containers with moss or burlap.   Take the pots out when watering, so the baskets won't stay wet.
