I generally prefer to grow plants directly in the ground, but there are several places that I don’t feel comfortable growing food in our small city lot, like where a garage once stood and along the side of our house. One project this year is to increase veggie garden space by adding some large container gardens.
If you’re new to container gardening, here’s a quick into to thrillers, fillers, and spillers.
- Thrillers are larger or showier plants than the others in that container.
- Fillers do just what their name suggests - fill the space and are typically medium height.
- Spillers and cascading plants that grow down the sides of the container.
