During open house we give away plants, so working on the plants to give away I came up with the idea for "Gardening Learning" to show you different ways of designing containers or gardens with the plants you use. So with the planning of the plants I have added another thing to the list to do when I am working on the spread sheet of all we grow.
What do you know about the spiller, thriller and filler concept of designing containers? This was developed by a great marketing tool for the Proven Winners growers. This is just one way of designing a container. You would put in the middle the THRILLER, something tall to give the container some height. The FILLERS would be placed around the container so they would like the word says fill in the container space. The SPILLER would be placed so like it says to spill or fall over the container giving another look to the design. Short lesson on gardening...goes along with "Gardening Learning". THANKS...Till next time, Becky Litterer from Becky's Greenhouse, Dougherty Spring is coming, I promise.
