Fun Fall Flower Projects

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Fall weather is upon us and my poor flowers have sure taken a beating from the Summer sun. I'm embarrassed to even show these planter boxes! Eeek! It's time to Find beauty in the Fall!
I have the best luck with Pansies for my Spring and Fall gardening in these boxes as they receive mostly shade. My Pansies will last through mid Summer and then slowly start fading to the bedraggled mess of flowers you see above. Then it is time to replant for Fall.
I recently found two ideas on Pinterest that I will really spruce up and beautify my front porch for the coming Fall Season.
The first on is this adorable Mumkin! This idea is courtesy of Circadee and you can find detailed instructions on her page. I'll need to pick out a few large pumpkins and Mum's at my local flower shop and use Miracle-Gro® LiquaFeed® to help extend the life of my flowers.
My next project is this fabulous Potted Candle Planters courtesy of Family Chic! This is what I think I will do in my planter boxes. I need to completely redo the soil, and I love to use Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix! This potting mix will automatically feed my plants for up to 6 months! It is amazing how big and beautiful the flowers get with this soil. I think instead of candles I will either use solar lights, or possibly the new flameless candles as I do really love how the candles look.
Miracle-Gro® has numerous other products that will make your Fall planting experience a good one. Make sure to check out the Miracle-Gro Facebook page where you can see other fellow gardeners projects and share your stories!
