Use a premium quality potting mix (NOT garden soil) to fill the container.
During the growing season, fertilize regularly with a fish emulsion-based liquid fertilizer at least twice monthly (at recommended rates on the bottle). Deadhead the plants as the flowers fade to keep them tidy and blooming. Water moderately once or twice per month so the soil doesn't get bone dry.
Winter care: Plants are hardy in zones 5-9. In colder zones, provide winter protection by moving the pots into a garage or protected space before winter freezes. Leave the plants standing over the winter and clip them back hard in mid-spring before moving the pot outdoors for the next growing season.
Plants are subject to change due to availability. Any substitutions will feature plants with similar attributes suitable to the garden design.

Planting and Caring for Pre-Planned Gardens & Collections
Soil Preparation: Remember that proper soil preparation is the key to healthy, vigorous blooming perennials. Use Yum Yum Mix and a high quality compost at recommended rates to prepare the soil. Inoculate the plant roots with Plant Success mycorrhizal inoculant.
Planting: Plant according to the mature size of the plant. Don’t be tempted to put the plants too close based on their size in the pots. They’ll need the space to grow and fill in the expected area.
Fertilizing: Once annually in mid-fall, after plants begin to go dormant. Use Yum Yum Mix or Yum Yum Mix Winterizer at recommended rates to improve the soil and provide essential plant nutrients.Use it with high quality compost, mix half and half by volume and spread on top of the soil. Scratch it in lightly and water thoroughly. It is also beneficial to treat the plant roots with Plant Success® mycorrhizal root inoculant if you didn’t do so at planting time. (Inoculation only needs to be done once.)
Mulching: In arid climates mulching is very beneficial. Coarse textured composts, shredded leaves, pine needles and composted bark are all excellent mulch materials. Apply to a depth of 1-2 inches. Replenish annually (or as needed).
