    I need to remember this for next year when planting my patio pots!

    25 garden tips you won't want to miss - some are pretty neat.

    We love to use inexpensive Majesty palms everywhere—in rooms that need a little life and on patios and porches. It makes a gorgeous “thriller” plant in a big outdoor container—with showy Tropic Escape mandevilla and hibiscus surrounding its base. Botanic name: Ravenea rivularis Care tip: Majesty palms like moist soil, but don’t allow them to dry out or sit in water.

    For gorgeous containers, use the Thriller/Spiller/Filler method.

    The top five plants for low maintenance gardens

    Shady Pots: main dark leaved plant with pink is Dracena 'baby doll', the pink and green speckled heart shaped leaf on the left is a Caladium, the reddish flowers are from the begonia 'angel wing', the purple trailing plant is Scaevola, the yellow one is Bidens. Most of these plants would work well in a shady location. Although I find the Bidens and the Scaevola prefer more sun. I hope this helps!
