I had the opportunity to spend a portion of last week with my sister. I can say for certain both of us inherited my mom’s green thumb. We choose to use it in different ways. I love growing my own food, and my sister has a knack for splitting plants and seeing the long-term vision of a garden before it has arrived. Needless to say, when I asked her to help me create a fall planter that would stay at her front stoop, she was eager to stick her hands into the dirt.
- 4-5 different varieties of plants & plant heights
- Potting soil or garden soil
- 2 Little Movers Plus diapers
Place Little Movers Plus in the bottom of your planter and fill with potting soil. Gently ease plants from containers and place in the planter. Move around until you are satisfied with your arrangement. Add more dirt around plants and pat into place. Don’t forget to give it a big drink too, moving into a new pot is hard work you know.
We chose a variety of plants to create different textures and heights to the planter. The plants were purple sweet potato vine, ornamental grasses, hot peppers, purple winter kale, winter kale and purple chrysanthemums.
Why Diapers In The Bottom?
If you run between diapers sizes like I do, it can be frustrating to have leftovers when your child has grown out of them.Huggies® Little Movers Plus are the most absorbent yet (other than the nighttime Huggies®). Simply grab the diapers your child has grown out of, to keep your plants moist all fall season long. You can find them in sizes 1-6 at your local Costco warehouse right now!
Have you had success with your fall planters?
