It's time to empty the summer planters to get them ready for fall. The front faces northeast so it enjoys a few hours of early morning sun. This year I tried a few Boston ferns for a simple bit of green at the front door. I've never had luck with Boston ferns in the house but they thrived in the humidity outdoors.
I headed to the garden center thinking I'd get some burgundy mums but when I got there, I couldn't find the color I was looking for. So I thought I try something a little different.
A grass, purple cabbage and a miniature purple petunia that will tolerate temperatures down to 30 degrees.
The grass is a perennial so as long as I get it in the ground before it freezes, it should be fine. Under cover of the porch, I also think the petunias will last right up to Thanksgiving.
It's not your typical fall flower pots but I like them.
