What You'll Need For Your Flower Bag

  • Flower bag
  • Potting soil
  • Fertilizer, if your soil doesn't have it already
  • 12 small plants
  • 2 clothes pins or bulldog clips
  • Scoop or large yogurt container

You can get your flower bags by mail or some nurseries carry them. They are fairly inexpensive and some of the heavier duty flower bags can be used for more than one season.

Lots of plants look great in flower bags, petunias, impatiens, begonias, verbena, pansies and trailing lobelia are often used, but you can also use more unusual plants to great effect too. I've made flower bags with herbs and lettuce and they look great.
