Container Gardening

At Natureworks, we LOVE container gardening! We have potting benches and organic potting soil available by the bag or the scoop. We encourage our customers to “play” in our garden center, gathering plants and pots together until they have a combination that they love. Our staff will gladly jump in with suggestions, and then set you up to pot up your own containers OR do it for you. When you are done, we clean up the mess!

Want to avoid the work? We gladly take orders for potting up custom container gardens. You can pick out your plants or simply describe your conditions, your likes and dislikes, and your color scheme. We will do the rest, including delivering and setting up the finished container gardens at your house. Got a large project? Our skilled gardening crew will come to your home and plant up your containers on site.

Throughout the growing season, Natureworks offers free workshops when we demonstrate various container garden planting ideas in our teaching tent. From window boxes to hanging moss baskets to urns that grace either side of your front door, we have the plants and the containers for you! WE consider all plants fair game for containers- vegetables, herbs, perennials (especially those with colorful foliage), ornamental grasses, long blooming flowering shrubs, evergreens, and, of course, annuals. As an added bonus, when you use perennials or shrubs in your containers and then move them into your gardens in late fall, you build your permanent planting stock as the years go by. From early spring, through the heat of the summer, and into the fall, count on Natureworks to offer you the latest, the greatest, and the most unusual plants for your container gardens.
