tHey cAll iT cHeaTiN'

If you're having a party or taking some pictures and your container plants are looking less than stellar in the background....I have a quick fix to spruce things up and make those pathetic pots look lush again! Run around the yard and start clipping the things that are vibrant and doing well and add them to your containers. Clip vines, branches, hearty blooms (live forevers fill things out beautifully and are long lasting). We were shooting some things on our studio deck last week and a couple of my boxes had seen better days. Needless to say, they were looking pretty sad and not very photogenic. My solution was to run to the garden center and just replant, but in the meantime, my mom (who has obviously done this before) had already transformed them back into vibrant, lively containers again! Took her only a few minutes and cost us nothing! BRILLIANT!

.....and definitely worth sharing.
Cheers to a little cheatin' now and then!
