‘Early Enchantment’

Early spring enchants us with bright yellow blooms contrasting with ivory white, blues and pinks in our exclusive container recipe. The designers at Squak Mt. are pleased to present a plant palette featuring foliage both delicate and bold to add interest to the color tones of our earliest season.

 

Our recipe can be grown in nearly any light condition through April. Plants in this recipe can be easily transplanted into garden beds when you elect to celebrate a new season of color in your container.  If you elect to maintain the pot through summer, a partial sun location would be ideal.

 

All of the plants in our design are grouped together at Squak Mt. to make it quick and easy for you to select them. Size and number of plants can be adapted for any size pot. The quantities in this recipe fit a pot approximately 16-18” in diameter. Our designers have also selected rustic toned containers that we have pre-planted with this design, so that you may take them home complete and ready to enjoy. Our friendly staff would be pleased to assist you in creating containers that welcome guests to your home with fresh color and texture.

Come celebrate this tender, hopeful season with enchanting color in your containers today!
