The Top 3 Ways to Flower Bomb Mom this Mother's Day

We all want to do the most for that person in our lives that we call “Mom”. Finding something special can be difficult after years of giving Mother’s Day gifts. That is why we are here to help! Give Mom the garden gifts of her dreams this year with blooms and plants galore. Here are some of our favorite choices to make mom go “wow”. 


  1. Create a Container for her

A great way to give mom some intense annual color is to give her a container handmade by you! There are a wide variety of annuals that you can add to containers. A good rule of thumb that we follow here at our garden centers is the “Thriller, Filler, Spiller” method. 


  • Thriller – a plant that usually adds some height and can provide pizzazz to your container garden.
  • Filler – a plant that fills up the container just above the rim of the pot.
  • Spiller – a plant that trails over the side of your container. 


Make sure you are pairing plants that have the same watering and sun requirements so that Mom’s container can be successful over the season. If you are needing some help on plant pairings, please give our stores a call (link to locations). To learn more about creating containers for Mom, check out Mike, the Garden Guru’s, webinar here


  1. Give her a bloomtastic surprise by decorating her porch or garden. 

Give Mom a plethora of flowers for her day! Flowerbomb her porch with all sorts of annuals and hanging baskets as a surprise. Here are some of our favorite suggestions: 

  • Geraniums
  • Petunias
  • Million Bells
  • Begonias
  • Ferns
  • And More!

Use your skills as a combo creator to make multiple combinations for the porch! Fit your mom’s personality just right with the colors and themes that she loves. Some of our favorite themes are coastal, modern, and elegant. 

  1. Fill her home with houseplants.
