How to Container Garden (a simple tip from BHG)

I look forward to the arrival of my Better Homes and Gardens magazine each month; but since we moved in December and have been unpacking/organizing/etc. a few issues had gotten set aside. Earlier this week I came across a few issues that I hadn’t read. This little gem of a tip caught my eye, and I had to share.


Thriller. Filler. Spiller.

It’s a simple combination and it’s easy to remember when you are shopping at your local plant stand.

Not to mention, it’s awfully pretty…

… and since we purchased several large planters last summer to quickly add curb appeal, I just need to purchase the flowers.

Do you have an simple tips for container gardens? What magazine do you look forward to receiving each month?
