Spring Plantings

Spring is just around the corner and it's that time of year when the world seems to explode with color!

You can bring some of that color into your life with container plants.  This time of year when the weather can still turn cold, container plants allow you to avoid a damaging freeze by bringing the plants indoors.

So weather you prefer bright flowering plans or lush green foliage, here are some tips to keep your container plants happy and healthy!
  • Make sure that whatever container you use, it has a drainage hole at the bottom for water run off. 
  • Larger pots are better because they allow for more soil and a more extensive plant root system. Smaller containers will need to be watered more frequently.
  • It is not necessary to pat down the soil after filling your container. Simply water and the soil will settle how it needs to.
  • For the strongest and healthiest plants make sure to include a fertilizer mixed in with or on top of the potting soil.
What type of plants do you like to grow in containers?  Do you have any tried and true growing tips?
