1. Of course, we always start with a personality driven container. I found this white basket terra cotta pot at Scott’s Antique Market, surprise, surprise! I love this pot for a spring container projects because it looks like an Easter basket! Fill your container with a good potting soil, 2-3 inches below the rim. We try to use damp soil, but if your soil is dry, it is ok!
2. When I am doing a planter like this, I use gallon size plants. I found all of these at my local Lowe’s garden center! Remember the three T’s- tall, trailing, and thick! Also, with a planter like this I put the plants in a triangle shape.
3. I plant the delphinium first. I always start with the taller plant and am going to plant this one towards the back.
