March Garden Calendar

Spring planting begins in March! Thompson Greenhouse opens mid-April with bedding plants, vegetable and herb plants, and vegetable seeds. But just because we aren't open yet does not mean you can't get started in the garden.  We are excited to help you begin preparing your lawn and garden for spring with this Garden Calendar from K-State Research and Extension services.
Contact Thompson Greenhouse in March to special order trees and shrubs for early April delivery!

Thriller, Filler, Spiller

When planting flowers in a container, there are three words to remember in design - Thriller, Filler, and Spiller.  Select tall "thriller" plants for the center/back of the container, "spiller" plants to flow over the edge, and "filler" plants for in between.  We've put together a helpful container design planner that guides you on the number and types of plants suitable for your container size and shape, and a list of some plants that qualify in each of the three categories.
