Finding The Right Plants
If you’re planting a brand new garden bed, think about its theme. Do you want to plant for pollinators, create a cutting garden, plant a fragrant aromatherapy garden? We've grouped our perennial plants by helpful categories to make shopping and garden planning easier.

If you're planting in containers, think about re-purposing items you already have for pots and making sure you have a nice variety of containers. Plan your containers with annual and perennial varieties that go well together and add texture and color all season long. Designing a container with perennials is really like designing a small garden bed. You’ll want to make sure you put varieties together that require the same amount of light and that will complement each other with foliage and blooms at different times in the season.

The garden possibilities are endless and once you’ve taken stock of what went well last year and what didn’t, it will be easier for you to choose varieties that have a better chance of thriving in your garden. And what better way to spend the winter months than dreaming, scheming and longing for spring?
