Step 1: Choose plants suited to the season
For the composition we offer in this example, we have chosen to combine heather, ivy, skimma and a few spring bulbs.
Step 2: Prepare the pot and the soil
Drainage is also important in winter in summer, or even more. The risk, in case of excess water, is no longer that of rotting, but of freezing. To protect yourself, garnish the bottom of your container with a layer of clay balls or any other material capable of performing the same function (crushed brick, gravel, pozzolan, etc.).
For your plantations, prepare a mixture of potting soil and garden soil, possibly supplemented with compost.
Do not fill the bottom of your container with this mixture, neither too much nor too little, but just enough so that the plant collar is then at the desired height at the time of planting.
Step 3: Place the plants in the planterIf there is no hard and fast rule, here are some helpful tips.
Place the most durable plants in the center of the composition, the roots of which will need space to spread out. If these are tangled in a "bun" when you take the plant out of its pot, do not hesitate to "untangle" it by cutting the peripheral part.
Place any hanging plants at the edge so as to accentuate their effect.
Bury the spring bulbs at a depth suitable for each variety.
Step 4: Finish planting and water
Your winter planter is ready! It remains to pack around the plants to promote their recovery ...
… Then water, in moderation.
Finally, if your planter allows it, you can place a protection intended to protect the roots against frost.
Here we use bubble wrap that we place between the pot and the pot holder. It's finish. You have left for long months of admiration!
