flower bed preparation Thriller, Spiller and Filler!
Thriller, spiller and filler is an easy way to remember how to make up a pot. The first thing to think about is the sun. Will it be a shade pot, or a sun pot?  Once you find the perfect pot, look for a thriller (a plant that will just wow you with lots of color and/or texture). Second you look for a spiller (a plant that spills out of the pot). Third select the filler (the color or texture that will fill the space between the thriller and the spiller). Try to plant plants that require similar watering. You should’t plant things that need little water with things that need a lot.  Don’t forget to fertilize your containers about once every 2 weeks! :)

Bee Kind! Be Safe!

When spraying for insects, be sure to be mindful of the bees! Check the spray you are using to gauge its toxicity to bees. Also, make sure you spray early in the morning and late in the evening. Most insecticides are contact killers, so if you spray at the right time you can avoid killing beneficial honeybees. Remember how important bees are to us all!

Gardening Tip: Planning
The most important thing you can put in your garden isn't seed or fertilizer. It's planning. There are many factors that will have an effect on your garden's overall success, like sunlight and water runoff, soil texture, moisture absorption and more. For over 50 years, Guilford Garden Center has been helping customers plan and grow successful gardens in this area, and we understand what it takes to be successful. We are happy to help you plan yours. Just stop by and ask!
