Learn How To Create Lovely Plant Arrangements

It’s a wonderful time of year to create a plant arrangement for inside or for a covered porch!  You will, of course need a container.  One of my favorite containers is a yellow wooden trug, so it was an easy choice for me.

I started by placing three yellow-orange mini chrysanthemum plants on the right side of the trug.  Next, I placed one Fittonia plant on the right side of the trug.  Then I placed one Janet Craig Compacta on the opposite corner, and a mini Shefflera on the left side, towards the back of the container.  All of the small plants need water proof liners so the plants can be easily watered.

For decorative fall accessories in addition to plants, I used three ears of small Indian corn, a small orange pumpkin inside the arrangement, and a white pumpkin sitting outside of the arrangement.  I used dried moss to cover much of the mechanics of the arrangements.  Plus, as a decorative accessory, I used a rustic spade.

The empty container width is nine inches and the empty container length is twelve inches.  The finished height of the arrangement is ten inches.  The finished length is fifteen inches. The finished width is ten inches.  The focal point of this arrangement is formed by where the handle of the trug meets the spade.

I hope you will enjoy creating a plant arrangement!

She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
