DIY - Fall Container For Shade


This shade container has the perfect fall touch & will work wonderfully in the shady areas of your yard or underneath a covered porch. Many of these plants are evergreen & will last through winter! For a complete evergreen container, we suggest replacing the creeping Jenny with Ivy & the plumosa fern with autumn fern.

Step 1: Find a location that gets no more than 4 hours of sunlight.

Step 2: Choose a large pot that is 20 inches in diameter with drainage holes.

Step 3: Fill the container about 2/3 full with Pike's Potting & Container Soil. 

Step 4: Work in a handful of Dr. Earth's Root Zone fertilizer. 

Step 5: Remove plants from their containers & place according to plant diagram. 

Step 6: Add more soil making sure to fill in the gaps & water well. 


Care Instructions:
 Feel soil about 3 inches down several times a week. If the soil feels dry, it's time to water. If the soil feels moist, do not water & check again the following day. Feeling the soil for moisture levels will help avoid over-watering or under-watering your container.
