Day 333 - A Triple Treat

Variegated boxwood, Red Carpet Sedum, and violas
An assortment of miniature evergreens mixed with pansies and violas
Camellias, Obsidian Heuchera, and Lonicera Edmee Gold

It's been a cool, rainy day on this Labor Day. Perfect for planning your fall and winter containers. So here are three ideas to get your creative juices going.

I love this! I am a beginner and trying to learn all I can, still having some trouble keeping my plants alive. Any advice?

Hi Jenn, getting to know your plants and find out what makes them happy is a little like getting to know someone in a relationship. Ask people about them that know them well (spend time at garden centers and talk to the person who has worked there the longest and ESPECIALLY check out the nearest university trial garden or botanical garden); subscribe to your state's gardening magazine - Carolina Gardener magazine; if you are still in NC - check out Plant Delights Nursery and And in January I have a book, "Container Gardening for All Seasons",coming out that is written specifically for beginner gardeners. AND DON'T GIVE UP!! We've all killed our good share of plants.
