Do It Yourself Containers & Combinations

Containers... how do you put them together, anyway?

Do you wish you could fill a few containers with plants for your front and back yards? Well, with a little guidance from the North Shore Plant Club, you actually can do this all by yourself. You'll see how easy it is to get the exact look you want instead of one that looks like you and your neighbor shopped at Costco on the same day.

Here are some great color and style combinations you can create yourself given Plant Club plants which are available now. You may wind up having so much fun making them that you'll want to give away a few away as gifts!

Need more inspiration? Check out our library of photos of planters and containers, an explanation of one common way for thinking about container design -- Thrillers, Fillers & Spillers -- and some thoughts about using perennials in containers. Hopefully you'll find something that floats your boat!

Or, if you want something to show up on your porch or patio that's already in one piece, we have a growing list of hanging baskets and patio pots available for purchase.

Limited Availability

We try very hard to source exactly what you’d like, but sometimes growers run out of plants! While this variety is a great deal at the price shown, we know that it has limited availability. If you want the plant even if it might be more expensive, or in a different size or quantity -- after you place your order, just send us a quick note at Then, we’ll try to get you some version of this from one of our growers. And if we can’t get it from anywhere, of course, we’ll send a refund!

Field-Grown vs. Greenhouse-Grown Plants

Plants which are well-adapted to our local climate are most often field-grown (outside). Field-grown plants are generally cheaper and have the advantage of already somewhat acclimated to our cold winters, but that means they’re not artificially far along in the spring and tend to bloom at the normal time in our area.

Spring annuals and tender perennials are typically grown in Greenhouses so they can be ready and luxurious exactly when customers want them. Some perennials are also “forced” into early bloom in greenhouses. In May, there can be a very big difference between field-grown and greenhouse-grown plants of the same type. The latter typically look good right away (so they’re a great choice where that’s important), but we typically pay a premium for it.
