Get into the holiday spirit with this festive winter combo! Many garden centers carry evergreens, like the false cypress and white cedar here, in small sizes — low temperatures and even a little snow won’t bother them.
If you live in an area colder than USDA zone 7, though, leave small evergreens in their plastic pots, and then tuck them into the larger container. That way, you can easily move them into the ground when the weather gets really cold or overwinter the plants in a basement or garage.
For extra interest, add an ornament or decoration to your container. We used clear acrylic accents from a craft store to echo colors from the edges of these pots.
