Container gardening is what we live for at Tonkadale. Check out two sun, and two shade recipes curated especially for you.  10 plants are featured in each pot- that’s about enough to fill a 12″-14″ container.  Yes! We fill them full with an explosion of color. Mix and match different pallets of the same plant in a pattern that suits you. No two combinations will turn out the same!
