An ivy draping over the side of a pot is always attractive, but being able to change the main event is even better.

Variegated ivy and fern are in the center of this urn. The ivy has been in this urn for 10 years with little or no attention or water. I wanted to bring it back to life and add color and/or interest. I took out as much old soil as was reasonable and replaced it on the edges, leaving a big open space in the middle. I have several 10-inch plastic pots, all exactly the same, and left space for one of those pots. My plan is to replace that pot with different pots throughout the year for interest and color. This winter I plan to put in an azalea because it is evergreen, or maybe I will get a small rosemary and shape it into a Christmas tree. That would be pretty.
