Planting Flowers in a Watering Can


I love to plant flowers in "old" watering cans. I found a blue, chippy watering can at TJ Max. I love this color blue! It really stands out in my flower bed. And the rust and distressing on it are just perfect.



You can tell from the above pic that the opening is not very large. I knew I wanted a variety of flowers of different heights, shapes, and textures but how in the world was I suppose to fit them in it? I found the solution with Confetti Garden! This container of flowers was at WalMart. It already had a great variety planted together and the bright pink colors really popped against the blue.


Here is a close up of the card with the names of all of the plants in this one small container.


I added my Miracle Gro potting soil to the can along with the flowers. Since this can didn't have an opening for drainage I had to drill some holes in the bottom.


I would have never been able to buy all of those separately and fit them in the container. And another good thing...the flowers were less than 10 bucks!


Sooo pretty! If you are having trouble picking out flowers for containers you may want to look for Confetti Garden flowers. It makes it so easy! (And no, I wasn't paid to write any of this. I just think they're fabulous!)

  5. Gardeners know that their plants enjoy a good drink - but at room temperature. Outdoors, that means surrounding air temperature. Tap water is generally a little too cool; it's best to let the water "rest" for a while before dousing.
