  • How to Plant Your Container Garden: Fill the pot 2/3 full with soil. Water until damp. Add slow-release fertilizers. Select your combo of pants with similar light requirements. Place your tallest plant in the back (example: Columbine). Make sure to not overcrowd your plants so they have room to grow. Loosen root balls slightly. Fill the areas around your plants with soil. Cleanup excess dirt. Give your plants a gentle drink with a watering can.
