Nothing says I love you like a hand made gift! Treat your sweetie to a unique container garden inspired by the traditional colors of Valentine's Day. Pink and red Primrose are the star of the show with fragrant variegated thyme trailing around it.
Start by drilling 3 small holes in the bottom of the watering can. Add potting soil to fill the container, leaving 4 inches at the top for the plants. Place a Thyme plant on either side of the opening and tuck the Primrose down in the middle. Fill in around the root balls with additional potting soil. Water the new planter thoroughly.
Alternately, rather than drilling holes in the watering can, you can create drainage inside the can by placing a layer of finely ground charcoal at the bottom of the container. The charcoal absorbs moisture and odors. Then, pour in a layer of small pebbles. Finally, add add the potting soil and plants as described above and water.
