One recurring issue I have with container gardening is getting fullness. I start out with the "Thriller, Spiller, Filler" formula and by month two the plants are leggy with one scraggly bloom.
They're sad. I'm sad. And I feel guilty for taking them out of the container and starting all over in July.
I'm thinking of experimenting with using a Hosta as my filler. As in this Hydrangea, Hosta, and Ivy combination.
Hosta, fern, and ivy. And some magic fertilizer.
This coleus and dragon begonia might be a little much for my front step.

Brainstorming is the ultimate snowy day activity. It's snowing here. Like, white-out conditions. April 7th. Grrrrr.....
