Derby Street Mall plantings

Colorful petunia planting at Derby Street

Last week I took some pictures on some really fabulous containers which are in an outdoor mall area in Hingham, MA.  Each of the containers shown is about 36" across and stands as tall.  They are well maintained and are so much more interesting than just geraniums, the standard pot plant of the recent past.  Not that geraniums aren't lovely, just overused.  I hope you enjoy these containers!

Here you can see how closely spaced the containers are along the roadway.  The use of this many varied containers creates a very pleasant shopping area.
