POPULAR TYPES OF DISH GARDENS
European Dish Gardens: You might have heard of dish gardens, but perhaps you haven't heard of European dish gardens. European dish gardens differ from traditional dish gardens in that they tend to feature native plants and herbs from Europe instead of varieties that originate here in America. You often see these kinds of gardens used in places like restaurants and hotel lobbies, where they can help create a more authentic European ambience. European dish gardens are a beautiful way to add greenery to your home or office. They're perfect for small spaces, as they don't take up much room, but they make a huge impact.
Flowering Dish Gardens: Flowering dish gardens are small container gardens that are made up of annuals and perennials. They're usually found on patios or in windowsills, but they can also be planted in larger pots if you have the space.
Flowering dish gardens are popular because they're easy to maintain and require little maintenance, making them a great choice for people who want to add some color to their home but don't have much time for gardening.
Succulent Dish Gardens: High desert succulent plants are all the rage these days. Truly one of the most frequently purchased plants from our flower shops. Succulent dish gardens are generally created by combining a variety of succulent plants, along with some cacti and plants not requiring much water. Our design staff plants all these gorgoue succulents into stylish containers, with the perfect blend of soil. The idea is to create a succulent dish garden that drains well and promotes root growth. These types of gardens are great for beginners because they can be very forgiving if you forget to water them once or twice. Succulents and cacti require very little water, so if you want something that requires less maintenance than a traditional garden, this is a great way to go!
Traditional Dish Gardens: Traditional dish gardens are a combination of plants and flowers that grow and thrive in various types of containers. They're also sometimes referred to as window boxes or terrariums. They're usually made up of plants that are easy to care for, like ferns, ivy, succulents and cactus. When our designers create traditional dish gardens, they blend flowers and plants that have similar water needs. We find that generally provides the best user experience.
