How to plant the perfect pot (video)

How to plant a pot

It’s Thursday! And Thursday means it’s YouTube day. Hooray! This is a video I wish I would have seen years ago when I was venturing into container gardening. I was rather scared to try planting a pot. It may seem silly but it seemed like there was so much I needed to know before I even got started and I didn’t want to invest that much time into it at the time. Now, a few years later, I’ve realized that flowers do grow even if you may not know everything (I hear this about kids too 😉

I spent several years living in the container capital of the world (possibly) in Georgetown, DC where everyone has the most gorgeous plant boxes you’ve ever seen. I would walk the 9 blocks to school every day gawking at the seasonal boxes and I vowed that I’d have beautiful pots one day myself. If you drove by my house now you’d see I’ve kept my vow and may have ventured into crazy plant lady. I welcome the label! foxglovesHow to plant a container garden

In the video I address the adage for selecting the perfect flowers for a pot: thriller, filler, spiller. Each pot needs one of each. And I always believe that more is more. Thriller for height, filler for width, and spiller for just that, spillage. That’s the secret weapon! Take a look at the video for more tips and tricks!container-gardengeraniums planter-painted
