Making a container garden is fun and rewarding. You get to select your own plants, then play in dirt to create a masterpiece you can enjoy all summer! A standard container garden consists of thrillers, fillers and spillers. A thriller is the big, bold focal point of your pot. Fillers are mid-sized round plants that surround the thriller, filling up space in your container. Spillers are long hanging plants that cascade over the sides of your pot. Southdale Garden Center can help you select the perfect plants for your pot. Below is a list of all the materials you will need to start building your container garden.
