Entryway Garden

Line your entryway, front porch or sidewalk with a colorful collection of gourds, pumpkins and fall container plants. This low-maintenance method minimal skill and can look as if a professional designer did it. Additionally, if any of your plants or pumpkins wilt or rot as the season goes on, just replace them! It’s important to note especially in our area, gourds do best in cool weather.
