Winter Combo Garden Ideas From Minter Country Gardens [Photo Gallery]

In the depths of winter, Minter Country Gardens offers customers refreshingly vibrant combo gardens. These container gardens are packed with cool-weather plants, with floral touches mixed in, such as red branches, birds nests and other features.

The floral arrangement touches are appropriate, since these combos have more in common with cut flowers than gardens that are designed to last for months on a patio. About the time the plants’ roots begin losing the battle for space and nutrition, it’s time for customers to return to Minter’s and buy their next seasonal combo garden.

Check out the wide array of designs that I spied on a recent trip to Minter Country Gardens, located outside of Vancouver, British Columbia:
