Artificial plants/flower for outside
Do you use artificial plants & flowers outside? If yes, let's talk. I'm about to take the plunge to do some deck rail boxes and possibly some window boxes, using artificial plants. Yes, I'm 'that' person. The one with the black thumb who just wants some nice color (and no upkeep) for some front-facing planters. Nothing too elaborate. I'm thinking of some red geraniums for the deck rails and some simple english ivy for the (3) hanging plants.
Have any of you used faux plants outside? Any special tips for keeping them from fading or tips for protecting them? Mine will not be in direct sunlight as my front porch is shaded by trees.
Any places you'd suggest for getting the best price?
