The Secret to Great Plant Choices Do you know the expression “thrill, fill, spill!” for choosing container plants? Whoever came up with that was right on the money for understanding what makes a plant container look great. Choose plants that thrill you. The ones that make you say WOW in the garden nursery. Surround them with contrasting plants that fill the container and make the thrillers stand out. And don’t forget to get some trailing plants that spill over the edges. We want colours, varying heights and textures to create a fabulous focal point. But it doesn’t stop there. The actual choice of container adds a whole new element. Grab Ideas Wherever You Go I collect garden ideas everywhere I go. If you see something inspiring, take a picture. I’ve gathered many images over the years and they have proven so valuable when I’m looking for garden inspiration or trying to solve a problem in the backyard.
