Try mixing Bacopa or any trailing type plant in the containers with the Pansies for variety.
Pansies can be planted in an a variety of vintage containers that will add a touch of whimsy to your garden. To plant in a non-traditional container, such as the ones shown below, simply add a plastic baggie to the bottom of the container. Then add a little gravel to help drainage. Finally, add potting mix and your plants. Water when soil is dry to touch.
Care and Feeding: Keep the spent blooms picked and water when the soil is dry – feed monthly with a good quality fertilizer for beautiful blooms.
I like to add a little “art in the garden” with one of my Pansy Love paintings.
Have fun adding pansy love to your garden and remember:
