Today I’ve got a quick tip for you about container garden ideas inspired by Epcot Center. Consider buying your plants in larger potted containers with multiple individual plants inside. Then simply gently separate them into smaller pots just like this wonderful offering from Disney Consumer Products thanks to MomTV. Its a great way to bring the magic of Disney home to my garden all year long. As well, with Mother’s Day and end of the school year gifts not far away, you’ll have plenty of opportunities this Spring for little hands to help you in a very special way.
If you’ve ever wanted to visit Disney I’m incredibly biased but I do believe that the Spring, from March to mid-May, is truly one of Disney Parks best times of the year. Why? Because this is when the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival occurs. Sponsored by HGTV (need I say more?) its simply amazing! We’d love for you to check out all of our videos, posts, and pictures shared through our Disney Tips Pinterest Board, on our GO MOM! Facebook Fan Page Photo Albums, and on our YouTube Channel Playlists sharing the many sites and sounds of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival as seen during the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration which has occurred for each of the last three years during this very special time of year.
My favorite thing about Epcot Center is not only how the park is transformed during this time, but also that it is full of unique ways to encourage you, the everyday gardener to bring the magic home and harness that pixie dust for your family all year long.
I love the many temporary gardens that appear in the most unexpected places giving families with young children an opportunity to just hang out and play or learn by doing, something Epcot Center is clearly world famous for.
The Butterfly Garden is one of my favorites, not only beautiful but educational about how to invite butterfulies into your garden at home.
And we could not have loved Tinkerbell’s garden more! It was complete with a play area for the little ones and in 2011, special guest appearances by all the fairies just around the corner and so much fun!
My favorite topiary for gardening at home of all time has to be the oh so friendly Mickey and Minnie. I wish to this day I would have scooped them up to bring home to my porch to welcome our family and friends all Spring long.
If you are looking for some gardening inspiration, check out the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival sponsored by HGTV. If you are thinking about planning a trip to Walt Disney World and Disney Parks, I encourage you to plan ahead now for a visit next year during the Spring. You will love being there at this time of year ~ its such a special time and the park just simply doesn’t look like this all year long. Its 3 months of incredible horticultural glory with amazing sponsored gardens throughout the park that envelope you in the beauty that is nature.
Does it really get any better than that? Let me know…
What do you do to bring the magic of Epcot Center home to your everyday garden?
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ we so appreciate you being here ~ see you next time!
