  1. Start off with a lovely container (be sure it has drain holes) and place it where it is going to live before you fill with heavy soil.
  2. Chose plants that are related by flower color and sun tolerance.  Vary in some plants with texture and with varying heights.
  3. Wear gloves! Makes cleanup easier at the end and doesn’t dry out your skin.
  4. Add Filter Fabric (Weed Block Fabric) to the bottom of the containerLearn more https://youtu.be/-tSVmLZXn98?t=31
