Miracle-Gro does fall!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am lacking in fall plants around here.  And let's face it, I'm not great at plants and don't even have any planters - but after looking a few things up, I've found some I NEED.   Advertisement

I checked out the suggestions via Miracle Gro Find beauty in the Fall and found out that mums and pansies are good for fall in the area where I live:

I think the way for me to do Fall gardening will be via Pumpkin Planters - because how can you not love this, found via Martha Stewart:

awsome fall planters

Basically it's hulled out pumpkins with potted flowers dropped into them.  Directions here: http://www.marthastewart.com/264236/pumpkin-flower-vase and you can see a video tutorial HERE: http://www.marthastewart.com/920847/how-make-pumpkin-planters-and-center-pieces , I would use Miracle Gro for flowers to make sure my flowers were big and thick - it makes feeding as easy as watering!  As mentioned earlier, I'm not the best with plants, so anything that can help keep those flowers alive and well gets a thumbs up from me.

I think this would be the perfect project for a beginner because it looks cute but doesn't take a lot of effort - the plants are already prepotted - I would just have to keep them alive, and I know Miracle Gro would help with that.

Be sure to like Miracle-Gro Facebook page so you can talk with fellow gardeners and share stories.

Pumpkin planters look SO neat! I wonder how long they last...

The pumpkin idea is cute after using the flesh of them for pies! Though, I can't bring myself to buy anything Miracle Gro or any other chemical laiden fertilizers/soil. It goes against every grain of my being to use toxic chemicals to do what nature already does.

This post just came out today and is another reason to NEVER use Miracle Gro products. I'm not trying to flame you or anything, but it's a strange coincidence that they're pushing to advertise through bloggers after they pleas guilty to illegally putting toxic pesticides in their bird seed. Please research this and decide for yourself whether you'd like to help them advertise. http://www.motherearthnews.com/nature-and-community/scotts-violations-pesticide-laws-zwfz1209zhun.aspx
