With winter rains around the corner, fall is a great time to plant in the garden. This gives plants time to establish before the heat and dry days of summer return. If you'd rather add a little seasonal interest instead, you can make a wicked container display. Make it even more festive by using a cauldron as your container!

When creating a container planting, make sure to include:

  • Thrillers: larger, structural plants in the back

  • Fillers: fluffy, medium size plants for the middle

  • Spillers: plants that spill out, over the edge of the pot

See an example we created here!
