Happy 4th of July, USA residents!! I hope you’re planning a celebratory picnic and looking forward to some fireworks! Incidentally, today’s photos are from…Canada! Not very good planning on my part, but we love our neighbors to the north, so it’s all good.
Today’s photos, yet again, are from Cherry Ong in Richmond, British Columbia. And once again, they’re not from her garden, but rather from container designer Shelley Brignall at Phoenix Perennials. Seems Shelley’s designs truly inspire Cherry (I can see why!), and she wants to share some of Shelley’s most stunning container designs from the past couple of years at the nursery.
Cherry says, “Don’t be intimidated by these being packed with so many interesting plants, for all you need is only a small sampling for your own home pot. What I love about these is the suggestion of all these wonderful combinations and textures which one may otherwise miss in a huge nursery if they were not highlighted together.” Gorgeous! Shelley—your use of foliage and texture is incredible.
