    Could you give us a video when you remove the perineal plants out of the planter at the end of the seasons. How do you store the plants to use for the following year, or do you just keep the plants in the pot and move them to the shed or some area where they stay alive. Also how do you store any of your empty pots, (ceramic , clay, plastic, metals).

    Why would you plant Lantana. It is a pest and a massive weed.

  4. Ryleigh Simone on October 3, 2021 at 7:55 am

    You have been the single most inspiring container planting visionary. I’d never had success with container planting before but your arrangements are so beautiful my planter budget has quadrupled over the past year. Looking forward to more inspiration from you over the coming months. Spring will be here in no time. #Zone6aOhio

    Do you have a video already or would you consider making a video showing how you take your plants out of the container for overwintering in your greenhouse? With multiple plants in the container, I always worry that I am not giving each plant enough root area to survive.

  6. sammy g on October 3, 2021 at 7:58 am

    I live in a hot country the Caribbean , always hot not sure what type of plant to put in containers , can you advise

  7. Joanne Tullini on October 3, 2021 at 7:59 am

    I adore flowers and gardens, but I prefer a minimal number of plants per container to allow each plant to grow to its full glory. When packed too tightly, plants smother each other out.

  8. Rhee Dixon on October 3, 2021 at 8:00 am

    I’d like there to be a list of plants used available.

  9. Kay Doyle on October 3, 2021 at 8:01 am

    I am loving the Proven Winners content! So inspiring! So my question… what are you feeding with to get these amazing spillover container plants? So healthy, so many blooms? What gives?

  10. Nita Mihlfeld on October 3, 2021 at 8:02 am

    I love the chocolate drop colossus

  11. Edna Williams on October 3, 2021 at 8:06 am

    Osteospermum ecklonis i picked up at lowes and its a orange and kinda burgandy at the center…but the tag says "purple sun african daisy" dont know if it correct tag…im in 6b zone…i would love more plants can i grow them from seed

  12. Ramibu 2 on October 3, 2021 at 8:06 am

    I’d love to see you take the red pots you just got & plant up Valentine’s inspired theme containers using reds, pinks & whites. What kind of plants could we use (in those shades) for late Winter, etc.

  13. Mariette Laplante on October 3, 2021 at 8:08 am

    What is bt

  14. Shirley Kleinsorge on October 3, 2021 at 8:09 am

    I love seeing all your containers and you gave me some good ideas! Thanks!

  15. Diane Beckett on October 3, 2021 at 8:09 am

    Than you for this beautiful video, on containers , I know a lot of work goes into these! I can’t pick a favorite their all beautiful!Love the Coleus with the white flowers! Love coleus ! And all the ideas! You are truly blessed & gifted.Thank you!

  16. Producer Maki on October 3, 2021 at 8:12 am

    Would have been helpful if all the plants were listed on the screen as she was talking about them and then per box in the description. It’s a lot to keep track of.

  17. nikki sizemore on October 3, 2021 at 8:13 am

    Can I ask how any lavender plants do u have planted in front of this fencing in the video when you moved ur container by it

  18. seriously? really? on October 3, 2021 at 8:14 am

    Pointless to waste plants by planting others in with the coleus and heuchera if they smother their companions and take over the whole pots. Let the two vigorous plants be the show stoppers that they will become and plant the others elsewhere where you can enjoy them for the investment you made in them. I spend about $40 a container to plant up pots x 5 pots it’s a lot of money to lose if half of the plants are smothered out.

  19. Ginger Salmons on October 3, 2021 at 8:15 am

    Wow, Benjamins teepee looks great with the vine.

  20. Vicki Broussard on October 3, 2021 at 8:16 am

    Would you please show us how you take these plants out of the containers and replant in your landscape? I just love starting my morning with these videos and my coffee.

  21. safi456 on October 3, 2021 at 8:17 am

    I would love to know how much you spend on these plants every year. Must be an eye-watering sum. I’m only just getting my garden landscaped, its a construction site right now, but I’m already dreaming of what its going to look like. Never done gardening in my life, so its going to be an adventure for sure… I just hope its not a very expensive one!

  22. Kevin B on October 3, 2021 at 8:17 am

    Great tips

  23. susan ray on October 3, 2021 at 8:18 am

    For the "newbies" to gardening, and some old-timers too, could you please display clearly the names of each of these plants as you are showing or talking about them? Some of these plants even the old-timer had never heard of and as the newbie, I’m totally lost and a bit frustrated to boot. … Heck, I can barely pronounce them let alone spell them. Please help?

  24. G H on October 3, 2021 at 8:19 am

    Can I mix supertunias and coleus in part sun containers?

  25. gloris calderon on October 3, 2021 at 8:20 am

    Laura what is the name of the lavender in front of the vegetable garden? Please, please respond!!!

  26. Jenny King on October 3, 2021 at 8:21 am

    Spring fever has set in. I love coleus and ended up with none in my pots last year. This coming year will be filled with coleus! Thanks so much for your wonderful videos! They make me so happy!

  27. terri dee on October 3, 2021 at 8:22 am

    Love container gardening. In 2020 in had 56 containers of all sizes. Many made with Laura’s advice!

  28. Xia Shi on October 3, 2021 at 8:22 am

    I love the lavender edge you did in the film. my soil is kind of clay which kills 6 of them. I love lavender so what should I do? thanks

  29. Chosen Explosion House Church on October 3, 2021 at 8:24 am

    Thank you!! So cool to see how your arrangement do over time!

  30. Sara Pawson Herrington on October 3, 2021 at 8:27 am

    Very creative ideas!

  31. Katherine Richards on October 3, 2021 at 8:27 am

    Sometimes you can’t repeat what was so perfect . Nature has a sense of humor.

  32. jacqueline Tumalan on October 3, 2021 at 8:29 am

    How in the world do you get that type of growth out of your containers? Literally flowers spilling out to the ground!

  33. John Minet on October 3, 2021 at 8:30 am


  34. Britty Wren on October 3, 2021 at 8:32 am

    I was staring at the flowers saying those are pretty. My daughter says she’s pretty. You and your flowers are both gorgeous. Your planters inspired me. So I planted all of mine up this morning. Ty for the inspiration. Happy mother’s day. Sorry I’m just finding you.

  35. Charles Bale on October 3, 2021 at 8:33 am

    Enjoyed the video, great information

  36. mujer cristiana on October 3, 2021 at 8:33 am

    What kind plants in containers could have in Las Vegas, zone 9 ?

  37. Josephine Kennedy on October 3, 2021 at 8:34 am

    Thank you – I learned so much from this year in review. I’m in love with the wicked witch – absolutely gorgeous!

  38. Becky Cataldi on October 3, 2021 at 8:34 am

    Do you ever rotate the containers so they can get equal sun?

  39. Mahesh Punjavi on October 3, 2021 at 8:36 am

    Enjoyed your videos and learned a ton, thanks for sharing. What do you feed your plants and the frequency of you feed?

  40. georgcorfu on October 3, 2021 at 8:38 am

    3.15 Stunning!

  41. Michael Roberts on October 3, 2021 at 8:39 am

    I am a car guy. Guess what. I really enjoy watching your videos. They are so well done and informative.

  42. Linda Parker on October 3, 2021 at 8:39 am

    Where is Part 1?

  43. Lora S on October 3, 2021 at 8:41 am

    Chocolate drop coleus would look AWESOME in your long hey racks next year!!! Or would direct sun be too much for them?

  44. mujer cristiana on October 3, 2021 at 8:42 am

    What part of the country you live?
