Fall has finally graced us with her presence and that means I get to fill my planters with ornamental cabbage. One of them being the mailbox planter. I was going to line it from one end to the other with the cabbage, but then found this bright, cheery, yellow sedum that TRAILS.
I wanted to get more bang for my buck and, so, I decided to buy the 6-pack of cabbage instead of the 4-inch pots. Last Fall I purchased the cabbage in 1-gallon containers to plant them in my window box. With that size you get instant color and fullness. The mailbox was too small for that size and with the 6-pk. I was able to fill the mailbox and put two in the window box.
If you're impatient like me, you want the lush look as soon as you plant. To get the lush foliage a bit quicker, all you need to do is cross the plants at the root ball when you plant them.
Happy Fall planting!!
