More lovely container garden ideas, inspiration and recipes. Lovely container garden images and plant combinations from thriller plants to spiller plants and filler plants and everything in between.
It’s that time again!
What time would that be, Lynn?
Well silly, it’s time to get our Container Garden ideas on paper, planned and planted…of course!
Oh, THAT time! Right!
I am continuing my quest to document Container Garden ideas as I come across them. I’m beginning to think of myself as the Julia Childs of Container Garden recipes.
Now I just need to get her accent down and I’ll be all set.
But seriously, if you are like me the warming of temperatures naturally forces your mind to consider how you will create your container gardens for this spring and summer, among other spring-y type considerations.
Full disclaimer: I am not even close to a horticulturalist…so…I can’t claim that I’m 100% accurate of my identification of these plants or plant combinations. However, I do think I came pretty close to get the desired effect, which is all I’m really after anyway.

We get most of our plants from our local Home Depot. They have an extensive variety of thrillers, fillers and spillers from which to choose to create your own “recipe”. They have a wonderful program by which you can Order Online Here and pick it up at your local store within hours or at your convenience.
Helpful Hint: If you have really large pots for your container garden idea, consider filling at least a quarter of the way with gravel or bricks if you don’t have to move the pot. If you need your pot to be lighter, consider empty water bottles with the lids on, styrofoam or empty plastic pots.
