An eye-catching mix of bold greens and sunny color, the Flowers, Kale & Thyme Container Garden features crinkly Lacinato kale surrounded by bright marigolds and thyme, which will drape attractively over the edges of the container as it grows. Try sautéing the kale and thyme in olive oil with a bit of garlic and a splash of wine for a yummy side dish. Use a large metal tub, whiskey barrel, or other 24-inch (or larger) container for this planting, and be sure whatever you choose has drainage holes.
For excellent results, fill the container with premium quality potting mix, such as Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix, which is the ideal weight and texture for container growing. Feed plants regularly with Miracle-Gro® Pour & Feed® Singles to ensure they get all the nutrition they need.
