MADISON (WKOW) -- Melinda Myers is teaching us how to create a living centerpiece using plants suited to
small containers, the growing conditions and your decor.
you need are three matching saucers of increasingly larger sizes, two small
pots, outdoor plastic glue, a well-drained potting mix and small scale flowers.
After you have all of your materials, drill
holes in the bottom of the saucers for drainage. Melinda recommends purchasing an extra one to protect your table
from the water.
Once the holes are drilled, glue
the pots onto the saucers and allow time to dry.
To leave room for your plants, only partially fill the saucers with potting mix. Make sure all the roots are covered when setting the plants in the soil.
