Container Gardening with Perennials & Shrubs

Container Gardening with Perennials & Shrubs

When it comes to container gardening,  designers use a technique called THRILLER, FILLERS, AND SPILLERS.  Thrillers serve as a focal point, Fillers are often mound forming plants that compliment the focal point without stealing its luster.  Spillers tumble over the sides of the containers  adding a finishing touch. This method truly makes planning a container garden so much easier!  You'll want to check the light and moisture requirements on the below list before starting!
