Bug Friendly Container Garden

One of the best reasons to be a member of the Missouri Botanical Garden is for member pricing on all the classes they have! We have done so many, from Little Sprouts to Garden Buds to Great Green Adventures. Classes are not just at the Botanical Garden, they're also at Shaw Nature Preserve and the Sophia M Sachs Butterfly House.

We just got back from vacation, and if I hadn't opened my planner last night I would have completely forgotten we signed up for a family friendly container garden class at the Butterfly House today. This is our second container class, and they are always a great seasonal addition to our garden. 

Today we made a container with Lantana 'Landmark White', Zinnia 'Zydeco Fire', Fennel, and Dichondra 'Silver Falls'. My favorite part about this class is finally understanding the concept of "thriller, spiller, and filler" in container design, which makes me more confident picking out my own plants at a nursery!
