Custom Container Plantings
Nothing spruces up your front porch, backyard patio or pool deck like a vibrant flowering or lush tropical container planting from Abby’s. We specialize in creating one-of-a-kind container masterpieces, either using your own pots or shopping from our vast collection of ceramic, clay and colorful plastic pots, urns and window boxes. All you need to do is stop by to meet with one of our talented staff who will walk around the store with you to pick out the approrpriate plants. We can design the container so you can plant it yourself (we like to recommend taking a photo with your cell phone so can easily replicate), or we can plant the container for you. In fact, many arrangements can be done on a while-you-wait basis.
Preparing for your visit
In our experience, while we have found that knowing the appropriate plant material is important, asking the right questions for a successful outcome is equally critical. Therefore, to prepare for your visit:
1. What is the sun exposure in the location where the container will be? Full sun (more than 6 hours)? Part sun (4-6 hours)? Little or no sun (less than 4 hours)?
2. What type of arrangement or flowers do you like -- tropical? colorful? foilage only?
3. Do you prefer a particular color scheme -- multi-colored? monochromatic?
4. What is your budget?
Additionally, if would be helpful to bring any inspirational photos from websites, neighbors or magazines.
