It’s time to go big or go home! Today I am breaking the rules and using more than three plants. I have tried really hard during this series to only use a maximum of three, but I think you are going to forgive me as soon as you see the results. Alright, let’s start the stuff ‘n’ shove!
FYI: Stuff ‘n’ shove is a design rule that I live by. It means that you stuff your container full of flowers and foliage until there is absolutely no empty space left. Make sure that you fill in all the bare spots even if you have to shove!
2. Boston Fern
3. Maiden Hair Fern
1. Do not fill completely with soil! Instead, fill half of the container with either pine cones, packing peanuts, or empty pots flipped upside down. This will eliminate any dead space.
1. The tulips and the hyacinth will be the first to go. When they do, simply remove them and then replace them with extra greenery. The rest of the foliage should last for about 2 months.
2. Make sure that the soil is always moist to the touch.
3. Remove any brown foliage.
4. Keep in indirect sunlight.
This container garden will last about 3-6 weeks, which means you will able to use it to greet all of your Easter guests. That’s right–Easter is on its way! The countdown to spring continues and I keep getting more and more excited every day.
