Line your container with a reasonably thick layer of moss and add a plastic liner.

Add a little SOIL on the bottom and begin popping in your preferred plants.

I used a 1 gallon pot of early blooming heather in the middle, some Bacopa and a 6″Campanula on the ends…..

and then threw in 2 – 4″ zonal geraniums for good measure!

Fill in the gaps with a wee bit of soil.

    Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Great choice of colors!
