I have some great pots on my back patio that look great in the spring and summer, but not so good during the winter. The plants in the smaller two pots die back, as do some of the annuals in the large pot. Here's my winter solution: so easy to do, and best of all, it uses plant materials from the evergreen bushes in my back yard. I did this last year, and the greens lasted until the end of January.

This pot's daisies were completely dead, so everything in here is new. I still added some holly, some artimesia, a variegated leaves from an unknown (to me) bush, and some bright red nandina berries. Much better!


This first pot has a large Rosemary plant which still looks great, but I still added extra greenery around the edges. Much better!


And finally, this little herb pot has lavender in it, but it's very scraggly now. I filled it out a bit as well.


And a nice, but slightly blurry, view of all the pots and my very rainy back yard.

Yup, it's so cold the grass is all dormant now. It will look lovely again in the spring.  Smiley
