Every year I’m plagued with the same seasonal drama — from early spring to late summer I see a significant sun positioning change within my garden. I often have to move my container gardens around to find the best light or they suffer from too little or too much sun. While the in-ground gardens and elevated beds must suffer the sun changes, the container gardens can be moved around with a little advance planning. As a person who suffers from severe osteoarthritis, I find it immensely difficult to move my container gardens around to a cooler location when they are completely full of soil. How to plant a light weight container garden? Fill your container only half way full of soil.
Watch the video below, sponsored by the Wave Petunia company and filmed in my front garden to learn the tips and tricks for lightening your container garden load. Plants in this garden include: Helenium Sneezeweed ‘Dakota Gold’, Wave Petunia ‘Easy Wave White’, French Marigold ‘Bonanza Yellow’, Hypoestes ‘Splash White’, and Juncus ‘Twister’.
