I know, pansies? Everyone always thinks of mums as the go-to Fall flower. I love them too, but I was looking for some fall decor inspiration and came across the idea from Miracle-Gro's Find beauty in the Fall website to use pansies as an aternative way to add fall color to my front porch. I love that pansies are a little unexpected and not your typical Fall gardening staple. You know I'm not much of a gardener, so I'm sticking with container gardens. Just take a look at these beauties I found while searching on Pinterest:
I love these colors against the blue door, just like I happen to have right now.
This one is my absolute favorite. I love these tiered planters with burnt orange pansies, decorative grasses and ivy. I think I now have an excuse to give Monica's easy DIY planters a try. :)
Finally, this one is adorable, and if you stop by this Fall, you might just see one of these babies sitting pretty on my porch:
I don't know much about actual in-ground gardening, but I do know that container gardens require really good and thorough care. For my summer planters, I used Miracle-Gro potting mix that takes care of all the hard work of feeding my plants for several months. Since pansies can withstand frost, that means my planters will look good until Thanksgiving!
I'm so anxious to get my front porch ready for Fall! You can find lots more ideas and inspiration on the Miracle-Gro Facebook page.
Have you ever used pansies in your Fall decorating? Have I given you enough reason to try? ;)
