Full Sun Container Garden

Great gardens come in small packages. Our Container Gardening Kits are available for Full Sun, Partial Shade and Full Shade locations. These are designed for containers at least 16 inches and up to 30 inches in diameter.

Full Sun

This garden is designed for Full Sun in most climates, but can be grown in Partial Shade in very warm areas.

These are "build-your-own" Kits - you choose one Thriller, one Spiller and one or more Fillers to get the color and effect you are looking for, confident the combinations will work together.

Pick one Thriller, one Spiller and one or more Fillers:

  • A Thriller plant is the central focus of the container, the "wow" plant
  • The Spiller is a plant with relaxed or trailing foliage that softens the look
  • Filler plants complement but don't dominate their groupings

You can arrange the plants as you choose, depending on the placement of your container and from what direction it will be seen. Generally, place the Thriller in the center or rear, with the Spillers near the edge. Filler plants are used to give body to the container, and generally extend the blooming period as well.

Our Container Gardening Kits give you a discount, which makes them less expensive than plants purchased individually. Whether your outdoor growing space is spacious or as limited as a balcony, container gardens add color, fragrance, form and small wildlife habitat to your environment.

Overall, FBTS Container Gardening Kits are excellent shortcuts to planning potted gardens. They are starting points around which you may choose to add other planters to grace your surroundings.
