What’s In Your Garden: Brightening Your Planters

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Brightening up the outside of your home may be as easy as changing up your planters or potted plants.

Holly Wagner talked to the garden experts at Bachman’s about which flowers do best at this time of year.

Susie Bachman, of Bachman’s Floral, said there are a number of flowers that do well down to temperatures of about 30 degrees.

Bachman said any violas, pansies, bacopa, nemesia, and lobelia should be able to handle cooler temperatures.

Bachman also said that one of the keys for a beautiful planter display is to get height in the center of your display.

The average last frost date in Minnesota is between May 10 and May 15, Bachman said, so after that point it’s probably safer to expand your potter’s horizons with different flowers.
