“Breath of Spring”: 2015 Early Spring Container Design


Feel the soft colors of early spring, harmonizing to bring the joy during this expectant season.  The designers at Squak Mt. have created this exclusive design for containers on your entry, porch or deck.  Yellow, blue and bright green tones highlighted with pink are found in our ‘Breath of Spring’ recipe.

All of the plants in our design are conveniently displayed at our nursery to make selection quick and easy.  This recipe is designed for a container about 15-18” in diameter.  Our friendly staff would be pleased to assist you in adapting our design to fit your pot of any size.

For your enjoyment, we also have containers pre-planted with ‘Breath of Spring’, ready for you to select and take home today.

Plants in this design can be planted in any light exposure the first half of the year.  As summer approaches plants in this design would prefer a partial sun location.
