    TOM: Has gray weather got you down? Brighten your outlook today with a colorful container garden. Hi. I’m Tom Kraeutler.

    LESLIE: And I’m Leslie Segrete with today’s Money Pit Home Improvement Minute.

    TOM: Spring may seem far away but you can get an early dose of seasonal color with a container garden. Start by choosing a strategic spot in your kitchen, foyer, or other sun-filled sitting room.

    LESLIE: Assess the sun and shade patterns of your container garden’s home to be. Then, shop your local nursery for plants to suit those conditions. Choose a variety of plant heights, textures, and colors and build in longevity with a few perennials.

    TOM: The container you choose is also part of the design. Select a style that complements your home’s décor with good drainage and a wide opening for planting.

    LESLIE: Quality potting mix is the finishing touch, providing the nutrients and moisture needed for a lush, colorful container garden. I’m Leslie Segrete.
