Four Container Gardens Recipes

I love planting container gardens! They make the best addition to any outdoor or indoor space. Today I am sharing four recipes for my some of my favorite outdoor containers.

If you have followed me for a while, you know one of my favorite ways to plant is by following the “three T’s” — tall, thick and trailing. Keep this rule in mind, plant in a triangular shape and follow along with some of my favorite recipes, and you will be planting your own containers in no time!

One of my absolute favorite color combinations is the classic green and white mix. This one is absolutely stunning! Plant this container if you are having mosquito problems this season. This is one that will keep them away!
