Planting Time
Planting TimeBy this time you have decided where you want your containers to be situated. You`ve also selected how many you`ll need, and the styles and sizes that will suit your needs -- or, your fancy! You`ve dashed out to your local garden center and purchased several bags of potting soil to fill your new containers. Finally -- you`re all ready to plant!

Did I hear you say you haven`t decided which flowers to plant where? You`re not sure who goes with what? Should you plant pansies with petunias? Or perhaps marigolds with chrysanthymums? Or will it be daisies with dahlias and dianthus?

True, there are so many plants to choose from it could boggle your mind! This can be a bit daunting if you`re a first-time container gardener. What you need next, then, is a plan. Here again, just remember. You are the artist. You get to plant in your containers what You wish to see, smell, touch, or maybe even eat!

For starters, consider the growing patterns of various plants. Some plants are "trailers," others are "fillers," while still others are "uprights." Some have large blooms, others sport medium sized blossoms, while still other varieties produce showy clusters of flowers that will droop prettily over the side of your container. Then there are those with tall stalks, medium sized stalks, and those that have no stalks at all, but grow in compact clumps. Some have blossoms of yellow, pink, red, purple, orange, blue, white, variegated colors, and the list goes on!
