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. 



Some successful container gardening tips:

• No matter the size or material, your pot must have drain holes

• Choose plants that have the same sun/shade requirements (we’ve done that for you!)

• Use potting soil only (no soil from your garden, it won’t drain or aerate well)

• Check soil in container often for moisture; they dry out quickly

• Water thoroughly when watering

• Fertilize, but not too often (time release fertilizer is an easy answer!)

 

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

In the tables below, we have suggested how many of each plant you should need for each combo and the number of plants recommended for each combination. Number of plants suggested is for an 18″ (medium size) pot but feel free to create the container you want with as many of each plant as desired.
