Fall Container for Shade Project
Full to Partial Shade Project
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.

- 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.
