Pretty pink container garden

By: Sherri Ribbey
Is your favorite color pink? Here’s the perfect container for your deck or patio filled with long-lasting color. It’s easy to care for, too!

We were really happy with the container from the test garden above — it looked spectacular all season. Here's how we took care of it:

Care tips

  • Use soilless potting mix, not garden soil in the container.
  • Water when you insert your finger into the potting mix up to the knuckle and it's dry.
  • Feed monthly with a water-soluble plant food at full strength.
  • Give it afternoon shade to help flowers last longer.
  • Don't worry about deadheading any of these plants.
