Show-Stopping Container Garden is a fabulous video showing Pamela Crawford’s own garden when it was planted for a television episode of GardenSmart TV.

She put together a gorgeous collection of planters from Pacific Home & Garden she knicknamed her Crayon Garden.

Although Pamela is considered one of the most experienced container gardening experts, this was the first time she had attempted to mix so many different colors of planters in one spot.

The star of the show is the huge flower balls using a planting method called side planting. Pamela invented this system with a variety of different types of supports for the baskets.

The baskets shown here are supported in ‘Basket Column Kits for Large Pots’ from This support system secures the large, heavy baskets securely to posts that go through the pot to a steel ring on the ground under the pot.

Pamela Crawford designs unique planters for and writes gardening books. She is considered one of the best-known container garden professionals in the United States. This video is appropriate for all of that area.

She also designs landscapes in Palm Beach County, Florida. This video is appropriate  throughout Pamela’s service area, including Boca Raton landscapes, town of Palm Beach landscapes, Palm Beach Gardens landscapes, Jupiter landscapes, and Wellington landscapes. These subtropical areas have some of the longest growing seasons for annuals in the continental United States and are ideal for container gardens.
