  • Thrillers, fillers, and spillers
  • Colors to use for an attractive plant combination
  • The planting guide, which includes helpful planter layouts and a materials checklist
  • Planter care, such as deadheading, pest and disease control, watering and fertilizing

To help you be more successful, we’ve ensured that our booklet is easy to follow. We also provide plenty of instructional photos to guide you in each process.
