Pansies in My Bicycle Basket

Pansies in My Bicycle Basketfeatured

Another pansy planting–I have highlighted these plants this week, because they can provide color during our fall and winter months, surviving our mild winters here in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.  Pansies and Violas are shy plants—they need visually interesting containers to really help them command attention—they aren’t show stoppers merely on their own.  Look for funky colorful planters or wreaths or pedestals to really make them stand out.  This bicycle planter is perfect for pansies, and evokes a feeling of riding to Saturday market and coming home with a basket of flowers.  There is not a lot of ‘how to’ to show here–buy those pansies, and plant them.  Here are the results, enjoy:  Pansies in My Bicycle BasketPansies in My Bicycle BasketPansies in My Bicycle BasketPansies in My Bicycle BasketPansies in My Bicycle Basket
