There's no better way to add spring cheer than a fragrant spring planter at your entrance.A basic rule for container making is to use plants with three different forms; spillers ( plants that spill over the containers sides), thrillers (plants that add height and drama) and fillers (plants that are mounding to fill base of thriller). Don't get to crazy with the number of plants, keep it simple instead rely on good proportions with colour and texture. Keep the scale of your plants in mind, i.e. fillers should be approx 1/3 to 2/3 size of the thriller. Your spillers should echo or contrast the colour or texture of the other plants. Plant in good light potting soil, water well and ENJOY!
