Ready To Grow Veggie Pots

Almost everyone is buying veggies to plant – many first timers too. Growing our own food might be crucial this year. 

That got us thinking about people in rentals, duplexes, apartments, etc. where they are unable to garden in the ground or in raised beds. Also, for the newbies, how can we make this easier so they will be successful growing edibles.

Our solution is Ready to Grow Vegetable Pots – a veggie planted in a simple nursery pot large enough to sustain its growth through harvest. Pick your favorite veggies and we will plant them for you!

The exceptional taste of home-grown vegetables is something everyone should experience…

Your Guide to Container Gardening

It’s time to create colorful plantings in your favorite pots or in new containers. Let’s up our game with Thriller, Filler, Spiller  2.0 by adding different textures or placing the plants in a non-traditional way in the container.

A quick review: Thriller is the focal point of the pot, the “wow” factor.  Filler is the plants that compliment the Thriller and fill in the rest of the space.  Spiller is a plant that drapes over the side of the container.

Switch it up and plant your Thriller in the back of the pot leaving room in front for layers of Filler plants ending with the Spiller cascading over the side of the container.  This creates more interest in the pot and accents different plants from different viewing angles.    

Using plants with different textures – flowing grasses, spiky leaves, small or large leaves – turns ho-hum into spectacular.  Use succulents and sedums in low bowls and place them on tables or ground level for an eclectic, clean look.

Keeping it Simple: A list of Thriller, Filler, Spiller plant suggestions for sun or shade containers is located in our Color House for your convenience.  

Below are 2 examples of large container plant-o-grams to get you started.
