Want a super-easy spring display filled with flower-power? Plant pansies in stripes. They’re very easy to grow in the cooler spring weather. Once the Houston heat hits, they will wilt and can be planted over. Until then, place the flower in glorious rows for a huge splash of color.

Pansies like rich, fertile, well-drained soil that is kept regularly moist. Mix some of The Arbor Gate’s fantastic compost in with your soil to help the bed retain moisture. Once planted, remove spent blooms to promote growth.

Simple to grow, pansies really herald spring. Try striping it up this spring and planting a creative and colorful garden bed design.
