Day 2 of Cherry Ong’s awesome containers in her garden in Richmond, BC. Today’s selections are foliage-heavy and fabulous. Cherry says she’s always wanted to enter our Fine Gardening Container Design Challenge, but has always chickened out. Um….Cherry, I think you should enter…especially since this year’s challenge is to create a stunning container that eschews flowers. You are a pro at that!
You guys should ALL enter the challenge! This is our tenth year, and it’s FUN. Check out the details HERE. Now’s the time to get your entry container designed and up and running. Do it!! If you win, not only will your container be featured in FG, but you’ll alsoreceive a $250 gift certificate from Garden Artisans and a $250 Visa gift card from Tropicanna® Cannas.

Yes, my immediate thought was to wonder if Cherry had ever entered (and WON) the FG container gardening contest. Her plant compositions within each pot are masterful and then the effect of the pots clustered notches up the impact significantly.
Wow. Beautiful combinations. Great to have the plants identified as well as the zones. Thanks for sharing
very attractive. I use containers a fair bit here as well, but yours are truly an inspiration.
Your arrangements are an inspiration to me. Such gorgeous pots too.
WOW, oh, WOW! Your containers are absolutely gorgeous. Love the plant textures, color combos + creative designs. Many thanks for including the plant names, Cherry. Now it's plant shopping time for me.
I love Chef's Salad, they look so scrumptious I want them all... looks like Peter has already claimed the Escargot Medley. Lovely, I just knew that Cherry is the Sexpot Princess.
I can't believe that I missed yesterday's post... your containers are fabulous, Cherry. You are a very talented designer. Trust me on this one, do not chicken out on entering the FG Container Design Challenge this year!!!
Cherry--take Sheila's good advice. She's WON the Container Design Challenge. Not once, but TWICE! She knows what she's talking about...
Thanks again for your compliments everyone! I am blushing. Gardening is bliss and if there's a will one will find a way to do it. Would you believe we got the pots on clearance at a local drugstore chain? Outdoor chairs and tables were a Craigslist find (we got them at 1/10th of the retail price) and these were the impetus to the container plantings around it. It just wasn't complete without the plants if you know what I mean.
I'll see what I can pot up this year. Anyone of you ever sidelined by injury and still wanted to garden? I'd be really interested to know how you got around it. Have a great day everyone.
just got my copy of Container Gardening Volume 9 and your pots are similar to those on Page44-51. Love them!!I have been thinking of starting succulents in containers and now I know I will. Thanks.
