Start with large plants that will fill the pot and look great as soon as they're planted. 'Tiger Eye' Rudbeckia, bright Gomphrena, Dragon Wing begonias, variegated oregano and a rosemary plant will fit into a 19-inch pot.
Fill the container with potting mix to a couple of inches below the rim. As you remove each plant from the grower's pot, gently tease out the roots. Before planting, we recommend dunking the root ball in a bucket of water to make it more malleable.
