Thriller Filler Spiller

 When it comes to annuals, the plants from Proven Winners® are hands down my favourites! The people behind the brand, Proven Winners, seek out, select and develop plants that are long blooming, easy to go and highly rewarding for the home gardener. And they are oh so beautiful! Now you know why half our greenhouse is full of all these gorgeous plants.
 
When they came out with the Thriller Filler Spiller idea, it was groundbreaking for gardeners to have a plan to put together easy containers with lots of Wow Factor!  The video below shows one very simple yet stunning combination, but there are so many combinations that you can make and making one that is all you is where we come in.
 
How it works
 
Thriller- Taller plant like Prince Tut™ Dwarf Egyptian Papyrus Cyperus, Purple Fountain Grass or Angelonia as shown all work well.
 
Filler - Bushy blooming plants like Supertunias and Euphoria 'Diamond Frost' make great choices.
 
Spillers - Your spillers can be foliage plants like the Sweet Potato Vine shown or you might select a blooming trailer like Bacopa or Million Bells.
 
Whatever choice you make I'm sure you are going to love your Thriller Filler Spiller Combination all summer long and well into the autumn.
 
Enjoy!
