Seasonal planter workshop 2024 - Country Bumpkin Garden Center

About the workshop…

Color is the magic that brings your spring containers to life. But with so many options, how do you achieve harmony? Our master planter designer, Lu, will guide you through the essential elements. From choosing dominant colors, and introducing complementary colors for contrast to analogous colors, those that naturally sit next to each other on the color wheel… Lu will show you how to find a balance that sings, not screams.

Choosing fillers, thrillers and spillers;

Thriller – The tallest element is like the lead singer stealing the spotlight. Whether you choose bold textures or vibrant blooms, the thriller sets the tone for the entire show!

Filler – The supporting act. These workhorses fill the container, providing a lush backdrop for your star. Here, contrast is key!

Spiller – The graceful dancers cascading over the container’s rim and softening its edges. Spillers add movement and whimsy, drawing the eye down and completing the overall story of your container garden.

Lu will also demonstrate how to plant your containers and care for them ensuring you have a spectacular show all season long.

Call now to book your spot!
