We Moved Our Containers to Our Rock Garden

June 12, 2018

Over the years we have planted our containers with a range of plants and placed them on our front porch. (Click here to read my blog posting: “Four Ideas for Flower Containers”). Then for several years these planters contained shrubs that we moved to our landscape this spring (Click here to read my blog posting: “Our Front Porch Containers 28 Months After Planting”).

We recently planted our two containers and moved them to our rock garden. Here are pictures taken about 6 weeks after planting.

When you plant a container garden it is important to use a good soil. Even though we were tempted to use the old soil in the pot, we know it is best to start off with fresh soil. We have had great success with Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix. This special mix helps keep you from over and under watering. We also feed with Osmocote Plant Food, a great choice for containers and hanging baskets as it feeds your plants for 4 months.
