Gardening with Petitti's

Update: congrats to Stephanie...lucky #15




Petitti Garden Center is quite literally around the corner from me, making it an ideal location for gardening inspiration. Which is exactly what I was looking for on my last visit.

My daughter has recently taken to growing herbs from seed, so when I saw this vertical planter, I thought it would be the perfect solution for growing/displaying her herbs this summer.


So we gathered our supplies...a vertical planter, potting soil and a variety of herbs to add to those she already had started.

The planting process was actually quite simple...


Once the planter was filled with potting soil, we just had to cut a slit in the landscaping cloth that lined the planter and plant our herbs.


I love the rustic simplicity of our herb planter and we can't wait to enjoy fresh herbs throughout the summer.

Are you looking for inspiration for your summer gardening projects? Petitti's would like to help and have generously given me a $50 gift card to share with one lucky reader. It's good at any of their 9 retail garden centers in the Cleveland area. Here's how to enter:
1. Post a comment about your summer gardening project.
2. Tweet the following: I want to win a @Petittis $50 gift card from @Managed_Chaos! #Petitti: http://tinyurl.com/pj9tz64 (You can enter once per day but must leave a separate comment each time letting me know you did so in order to count)
3. Share this post on your Facebook page (Leave a comment letting me know you did so)

A random winner will be selected after the contest closes at 5 pm. on Friday, May 15. 

DISCLOSURE: I was given a Petitti Garden Center gift card in exchange for this post/giveaway. I am a regular Petitti's shopper and all opinions are 100% my own.

Loved this idea & happy to see a local business has a vertical planter already made! I wasn't looking forward to trying to craft my own.

This year's project is to fix up the spot in the front yard that used to be a tree and then a stump. It's a mess currently and we want to turn it into a flower bed.

We're getting a privacy fence and making over our entire backyard. This could be put to good use!

I LOVE your project. I need something like that. Something easy(ish), pinterest-y, and low-cost!
