Sprucing Up Your Curb Appeal

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.
Us home bloggers often spend a lot of time sharing all the great projects we do inside our home but the exterior often gets left to the back burner. Don't get me wrong, I've shared a lot of outdoor projects we've taken on, but there's still so much we can do, especially in regard to landscaping. I recently came across a great website from Scott's - Find beauty in the Fall where you can find fall project ideas specific to the region where you live. Yes, it's not too late to plant in the fall!
For my region, Fall gardening recommened mums and pansies. How perfect! They are both inexpensive plants and come in so many beautiful colors. I found this great pin on pinterest for mums in a planter.
Plants of varying heights is always a sure way to go and I love how these two work together. I'm not sure exactly what the center plant is called, but it looks like some relative of cattails. To be sure to get the best results with mums (and any plants and flowers), I always turn to Miracle-Gro. I've used their products before and will continue to use them because it's given me great results.

Miracle Gro makes so many amazing products whether you are using them in the ground or containers. For this container project, I would use a specialized potting medium such as Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix or Miracle-Gro® Moisture Control Potting Mix. Starting two weeks after they are planted and onward, you want to maintain your beautiful flowers by using  Miracle-Gro® LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food or LiquaFeed® Bloom Booster® Flower Food . This will produce beautiful blooms and healthy growth. And one more tip: your flowers will produce more blooms for a longer period if you remove flowers that have faded and started turning brown.

Happy planting!
