Deborah Trickett Winter Wow: Beautiful Containers for the Colder Months
Winter approaches but this doesn’t mean your window boxes or containers need
to spend the next four months filled with the skeletons of long-dead plants.
Instead, you can compost those spent annuals and fill the void with a variety of
options from classic to contemporary. Deborah Trickett, whose business The
Captured Garden is all about keeping container gardens appealing in all seasons,
will share creative ideas to carry you through the holidays to spring.
