One-Step Style™ Container Gardening

Container gardening is big on trend again this year. The great news is it’s totally do-able, even if you’re short on time and gardening expertise, thanks to Expressions Annuals™ from our HGTV HOME Plant Collection.

We’ve taken the guesswork out and put the beauty in with premixed, container-ready gallon size combinations with a range of good looks and gorgeous plant varieties. Our mixes go straight from the garden center into decorative containers or hanging baskets on your patio, perch or porch. Voilà – instant container garden!

HGTV HOME Plants One-Step Style explanation

Our One-Step Style™ gallon mixes are complementary in both color and growth habit so they look fabulous all season long. If you’re going for a balanced look on patios or by the front door, just buy two of the same mix.
* Simply transfer the mixes to decorative containers or hanging baskets with a hole in the bottom for drainage.
* For hanging baskets, suspend on your deck railing or pergola with a shepherd’s hook.
* For decorative containers, place on your porch, stoop or deck with other pots and containers filled with complementary annuals.
* Water thoroughly, fertilize with bloom food periodically and wait for the compliments. Always remember to water because containers and hanging baskets dry out fast.
* It’s that easy!

Check out our pre-mixed gallon varieties: Friendly Fusions™, Big & Bold™, Confetti Craze™, Sassy Sweethearts™, Pop ‘N Polish Petunias™, Chic Black & White™ and more!

    I just love all your suggestions for containers. I always find container planting such a task and I am both happy with my results but I am going to buy HGTVs plants. Thank you.

    Saw these today at my local nursery and loved them; however, I wondered what is the best size pot to transfer the pre-mixed gallons into for maximum beauty?

    Hi Molly- we suggest a 12"-14" top diameter hanging basket or premium container. Also consider the soil volume of the container: a greater soil volume (3+ gallons) means it holds more water and gives the roots room to spread out, which are good things for annuals.

    Love the 1 step gardening ideas. I recently moved in my childhood home whnn my beooved mom & my sister passed away 18 mths apart.there has been no time to bring any lawn beautification to the home mom loved so much. Maybe your ideas can help me bring joy & beauty back to the 'home that love built & a family grew & loved together. As the last 1 left it would make me soo happy in memory of dad,mom& sister. Thx for the ideas. 1sept would save time & help as I have limitations & never have grown anything.

    I am looking to purchase some of the plant combos. But cannot find nearby retailers with your 'locate retailer' search engine. I keep getting routed to Indiana, Michigan etc. Very disappointing.

    Hi Susan-
    Locator is here- http://hgtvhomeplants.com/find-a-retailer

    When you click on the retailer it automatically populates based on your ip address but it’s not an exact calculation... What you need to do is go to the form field where it says the city, highlight all the words in that field and when they are highlighted then delete them... Now the field should be blank.... Start typing in your city and it should autofill for you once you get Easton in there, choose Easton, MD option from the drop down choices... we did a search for Easton and there are a few around you.

    Let us know if you need more help!

    Hi Linda... thanks for the inquiry. There are some Albertsons in the Florida area that have some of our plants. Try looking on our retailer locator http://hgtvhomeplants.com/find-a-retailer/locations.html

    What flowers would work best in a hanging basket in a spot that gets morning sun?
