Greenhouses are buzzing with customers as spring planting is well underway. It is time to purchase planters, window boxes and the flowers and plants to fill them. Maine plant expert Carol Hiltebeitel of Coco Designs takes me to a greenhouse and then through the planting process. Here is our how to photo shoot, photos by Liz Donnelly.
Step 1: pick your planter
Step 2: Gather your tools
Step 3: Prepare your planter with soil, in my case I added top soil.
Step 3: Shopping my favorite part! Choose healthy plants.
Step 4: Remove the plants from the pots and break up the root ball.
Step 5: Plant your flowers and plants according to the recomondation on the tags.
Step 5: Water until your hand gets tired! They need a good first drink.
ENJOY YOUR PLANTER:
Ugh, now I have to paint the deck! Happy Spring.
Thank you Carol and Liz
