I went to the Portland Flower and Garden Show this weekend. This nursery did a lecture on creating containers. Very interesting and lots of ideas out of the box.
Here are some he had at the show.

I had a bit of extra time so I drove down to his nursery. This is the parking lot.

This would be a fun place to visit in the summer when the containers are full. These are all winter type containers but really nice ones.

I should have stood next to the planters. The container with all the trees is huge. The trees that are planted in there are 5-6 ft. tall.
