Potted plants are an easy way to add color and beauty to front steps as well as porches and balconies. If your steps are shady, use herbs or shade plants (or both). Colorful pots that contrast with the contents, or even match, add a lot of splash and are a welcome sight. Move potted plants on and offstage as their prime comes and goes, and bring in replacements. But above all, keep these plants watered. Plants in pots dry out amazingly fast. See Chapter 16 for more tips.
Be sure to keep the plants out of the way of people climbing the stairs. You don't want to trip and hurt yourself on your beloved plants!
