Laura Lombardi on Instagram: "One thing I knew I wanted when I first started gardening was an abundant herb garden. 🪴 

BUT, as a newbie, I didn’t know there were certain herbs that if planted in the ground were likely to spread and cause a ruckus all around my garden 🌸 I did this about 5 years ago with Mint and it was a big lesson 😆

✨So here’s your PSA: if you’re planting Mint and/or Lemon Balm, make sure you plant them in their own container (unless you’re hoping for them spread!) 👩‍🌾

As two of my favorite perennial herbs, I’ll always have these in my garden 🪴 

Here’s some tips for growing them and how they can be used ⬇️

🪴Mint: the most common varieties to grow are peppermint and spearmint but there’s actually about 30 different types! Mint likes rich, well-draining and moist Perennials, Herb Garden, Planting, Planting Mint, Laura Lombardi, Perennial Herbs, Lemon Balm, My Garden, Peppermint

Laura Lombardi on Instagram: "Have you been wanting to create your own flower containers but not sure where to start? 🤔

Then this post is for you! 💫

I used to have big dreams of full, lush containers on either side of my garage and just had no idea how to achieve the look. 🤷‍♀️

Once I learnt how to implement this technique it finally all made sense and I could achieve my vision over and over 🌿

💾 SAVE this post so you can refer back to it when you create your own! 

Here’s what you’ll want to do ⬇️

🌸 Add one “thriller” plant in each container. This is typically something taller that adds some height and drama. It can go in the middle or back. 

Some great options are: Ornamental Grasses, Ferns, Salvias and Angelonia. 

🌸 Add at least 2-3 “fillers”. These are just how they sound. Container Flowers, Grasses, Ornamental Grasses, Flower Containers, Laura Lombardi, Big Dreams, Dream Big, Lush, Garage

Laura Lombardi on Instagram: "Most of us have busy lives. Kids, work, family, friends and can’t dedicate the bulk of our time tending to our gardens so we choose to not even start!

✨ BUT I’m here to tell you that it’s possible to have both the garden and the busy life. I started gardening a few years ago while working full time, having a toddler and have figured out how to make the garden of your dreams easier to start and more practical to maintain. 

There’s a system to it that anyone can follow so that no matter how busy you are, you can still enjoy growing flowers and vegetables this season. It’s about being more efficient with your time and getting in a routine.

Lantana checks all the boxes! It’s easy to care for, can take all the heat, and blooms a gorgeous cheery pink and yellow until the Fall. 🌸

In the North it’s grown as an annual, and in some southern climates, it grows nearly year round ☀️

Lantana loves hot, dry weather and is tolerant of most soils. Make sure it’s well-draining and you’ll have one happy plant!

✨Here’s a few more annual heat-lovers I have on my list 👇

🌸 Angelonia 
🌸 Salvia 
🌸 Zinnia 
🌸 Supertunia (and Mexican Petunias in extreme heat - my mom lives in FL and swears by these!)
🌸 Scaevola 
🌸 SunPatiens
🌸 Verbena
