A gardener who loves their Minions can actually engage the whole family in making a nice squadron of them out of pots of varying sizes.

Plant flowers such as begonias, impatiens or petunias, but make sure they don’t cover up the words.

A wreath of bent twigs, dried flowers and berries has been fixed to the upper part of the doorframe.

In this grouping, the tallest pot, a milk can, holds the fern and a spray of white flowers. These three are planted with violas, pink, orange flowers and yellow tulips and trailing baby’s breath.
This huge black milk can is empty, but the wire basket beneath it holds a planting of cream-colored, golden throated petunias in straw. Other flowers that have a similar eye-catching deep blue include species of bellflower and speedwell.
