The Q&A Archives: making pots

Question: I recently read an article on making outdoor pots which featured plants found at Home Depot. I carefully put the magazine in a safe place and now I can't find it. It was probably a Southern Living or one of that sort. Can you e-mail me the plants used in that article. Thanks!! Beckie MIllsaps

Answer: I can't locate the article but I have some suggestions for colorful plants for your containers:
Forget-me-not (Myosotis); Larkspur (Delphinium); Pansy (Viola); Snapdragon (Antirrhinum); Viola; Geranium; Marigold (Calendula); Petunia; Zinnia. For shady spots, grow Begonias; Coleus (Solenostemon); Fuschia; Impatiens; and Lobelia.

Hope this help you to plan a beautiful container garden!
