I’d love it if you had the recipe to purchase all together! I’d just order it as is. Maybe I’m not seeing this option?

We do sell container gardens in the spring. You can find them under the Shop tab.

I am caring for a Alzheimer’s patient in her home. I was told she loves flowers so I brought my 2018 idea book to her house- she loved this combination. She has a sad and neglected circle garden in her front yard so I thought I would do this combination there. I am just not sure how many plants to use and if I should put a planter in the center to give it some height. The circle is 8’4” in diameter. Hope you can help.

Hi there,
You would probably need about 8 to 10 of each plant. The Meteor Shower will get 20-30 inches, so it is up to you if you want to give them more height than that!
Hope this helps!

Do you sell the container as well? It looks like it's a snow white, is that correct? Love it with this recipe!

Unfortunately, we don't sell the containers. You can always check with local garden centers as they often have a good variety of unique containers. Crescent Garden is a great company that you can find online that has self-watering containers that you may want to check out too.

I want to use this combination in a spring window box. How soon can I put the plants out? I'm in zone 6a.

You want to wait until there is no chance of frost or freezing weather. It will vary from year to year, but normally in zone 6 you should be able to plant in late April or early May.
