Creeping Jenny, also known as Twopenny Grass, is considered a 'spill' in the thrill-fill-spill formula for planters and gardens since it will trail beautifully as it spreads. When planting, dig a hole and position the plant so that it will be at the same depth it was in its original container (you should still be able to see some of its soil at ground level when you are finished). Backfill the hole with a mixture of native soil, compost and good organic matter to improve drainage.
