Enjoy Outdoor Accessories All-Year Round

The beautiful new urns on your deck or patio were a sight to behold this summer. Overflowing with brightly colored flowers, they brought you pleasure all season. But now that the colder weather is setting in do you need to unplant them and store them out of sight where no one can enjoy them?

"The answer is no," says Peter C. Cilio of Campania International Inc., manufacturers of fine garden accessories. "Bring your containers, birdbaths, statuary and fountains indoors to use as accent pieces during the holidays and winter months."

With more than 20 years in the garden business, the folks at Campania know it is possible to use garden accessories in hundreds of creative ways - with and without plants. "Outdoor accessories can really make a statement when they’re brought indoors," says Cilio. "Cast stone urns, especially with a weathered mossy patina make wonderful and atmospheric indoor decorations. "

If you wish to plant outdoor urns or containers for indoor use, Cilio recommends inserting a plastic liner in the pot and slipping the plant in the liner, thus preventing leaks when watering. Sphagnum moss can be used to fill any gaps if the interior of the pot is still visible. Read More...
