Gazing Ball in a Container Garden
Ready to do some planting? Consider a gazing ball for something different within your container gardens. Often you see a gazing ball in the middle of a garden as a focal point. It usually stands alone on a pedestal. A different approach to using a gazing ball is to place it as a focal point in your container gardens or pots! Why not? It reflects the colors of the plants around it and makes a great accent.
I looked for a gazing ball that was a bit mirror-like so that it didn’t set the tone for the colors, but would reflect them. By placing a tall cup in the middle of a large planting pot, the ball is secure and stays in place. Plant low trailing plants around it. If they get too big, just keep trimming them back. I used two different trailing vines that contrast in color and texture. I placed it among a grouping of several taller pots. I liked the way it looks, don’t you?
Just another way of mixing something different in your plantings!
