Plants for Mom

You might be tempted to buy flowers for Mother’s Day but lawn and garden expert, Larry Pfarr, says that container gardens are the way to go.

Larry Suggests:

  • Monochromatic Container – use plants that are all from the same color group
  • Analogous Container – use plant colors that are next to each other on the color wheel
  • Complimentary Container – use plant colors that are opposite of each other on the color wheel
  • Triad Container – use three colors that are evenly spaced apart on the color wheel

Other Tips:

  • The container must have drainage holes and always use potting soil
  • Select plants for your growing conditions – sun or shade
  • Try something new in your containers
