The Master Gardeners of the Nature Center are again offering you suggestions for beautiful flower combinations for your spring and summer containers. We’ve included combinations for both sun and shade containers. Choose a sun or shade combo that we suggest or make up your own design from the plants we’re offering. These beautiful containers will give you months of enjoyment and give you the knowledge that you are helping support your community Dunwoody Nature Center! 

Be sure to look over our Pass-a-long Plant Sale when you pick up your plants. You can get some real bargains from our sale of rescued plants and seedlings. 

  • The three elements of a good container design:
    The Thriller – the tall focal point 
    The Fillers – plants that fill in around your ‘Thriller’
    The Spillers – plants that spill over the edges of the container
