Gaining a Green Thumb With Miracle-Gro and the Gardenieres

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.

Continuing my attempt at a green thumb has been hard. But with the help of Miracle-Gro and the Gardenieres I've gained hope for my plants. I have been able to Find beauty in the Fall by bringing my plants a little closer to home and using pots to house my herbs.

(1) Miracle-Gro

Taking inspiration from the Gardenieres projects, we've tacked a few projects of our own in our front yard. By creating a potted herb garden I've been able to easily transfer plants indoors when needed and give the proper care to each individual plant. It's also created a great focal point for our front patio and has made the area much nicer and more enjoyable to be in.

By using herbs to decorate our patio we've created a functional garden that's both great to look at and useful in the kitchen. When I need herbs for cooking all I have to do is snip a few off the plants in the planters. It's not only saved our family time running out to the grocery store, it's also saved us money.


For potted plant projects, check out Miracle-Gro's Potting Mix. It feeds plants for up to 6 months with the Miracle-Gro Continuous Release Plant Food. It's rich organic materials help improve drainage and air flow. You can also use Miracle-Gro® LiquaFeed®. It makes feeding as easy as watering and feeds plants through leaves and roots. It's great to use with all flowers, vegetables, trees and shrubs.

Ever since moving to this house I've been uninspired to do anything outdoors. At my old house I had gardens and pretty flower beds. If I decided to give it a go here I will definitely stick to Miracle-Gro.

Oh I love the idea of planting herbs in pots so you can bring them inside for the winter! So smart!

I don't have a green thumb at all. My mom loves everything gardening though so she makes my home look beautiful! She even knew how to place pumpkins around the garden to look so festive this fall!
