June 8 column

Calibrachoa 'Watermelon'
Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: For pots with impact, go for thrill, fill and spill. As you can probably guess by the headline, it's about some of the most wonderful annuals to use in creating containers for your garden and living spaces.

Even though I have a huge garden, I find that containers really add a different dimension to our deck and front porch. They provide color and texture, as well as a homey look.

I hope you'll find the column interesting. As usual, I could have written way more about favorite annuals but ran out of room! What are your favorites?
