Fill the basket up to 1” from the top with a good quality potting mix like Miracle-Gro® Moisture Control® Potting Mix.
Plant your sun loving plants in one of the planters, arranging the tallest plants in the back, mid-sized plants in the middle, and vining and trailing plants near the front to spill over the edge.
Repeat this process with the second planter and your shade loving plants.
Hang your planters on a porch railing; sun loving facing out, and shade loving facing in, and water well.
In about a month, start feeding your new planters every 7 to 14 days with Miracle-Gro® Plant Food.
