FINALLY it’s DECK TIME! That time of year where a glass of wine and a plate of crackers and cheese can be enjoyed on either the front deck or the back one…depending on my mood and the position of the sun! Where curling under a blanket into the evening and listening to the peepers in the pond down the street…is truly a treat. And when bringing my computer outside to work…is pure bliss.
To make it that much sweeter, once again this year, President’s Choice Lawn and Garden Centres treated me to a Fabulous Front Porch Makeover!
So, here’s the BEFORE…
and the AFTER!
If you recall from last year’s deck makeover, I’m not much of a gardener and even had a difficult time figuring out which direction my house faced! But…with the help from Judy Thompson at Forest Glen Greenhouses in Brookfield, NS (an exclusive grower for President’s Choice and the Atlantic Superstore Garden Centres) I now have the most BEAUTIFUL flower arrangements to enjoy all season long!
On my front porch are various sized planters filled with the PC® Super Gigantico Confetti Garden Mix that include:
- Lavender Rose Geranium,
- Fortunia Star Lavender Petunia (PC Exclusive),
- Callie White” Calibrachoa, &
- Twister Burgundy” Verbena (PC Exclusive)
A daily dose of water, dead-heading the geraniums when the blooms have faded, and a little dead-heading of the petunias and verbena…plus some plant food…and I’ll be enjoying these containers well into September (October if the weather treats us well!)
To make the space even more enjoyable, I perused through the Home Collection for Summer 2016 at Atlantic Superstore (which incorporates new products from 3 private label brands: President’s Choice®, Life at Home® and Everyday Essentials™…embracing the newest and best in décor and design trends). I found the perfect blanket to curl up in on cool summer evenings, a fabulous lantern to add a little ambiance to the evening, and a wonderful water pitcher set (that won’t always be filled with water!)
The summer season is short and now that it’s upon us, head out to your nearest Atlantic Superstore Garden Centre and make your space exactly what you need!
For me…it’s a spot of refuge. A place to enjoy a little time to myself…or a chat with a friend.
Visit the My PC Garden website for fabulous ideas and to check out what’s available in store…AND…make sure to drop into an Atlantic Superstore Garden Centre near you for all of your planting needs.
