Be inspired by 7 different container gardening ideas including flowers for sun, shade, hanging planters and more.
Whether you are creating your own hanging flower baskets or filling some beautiful urns and pots on your porch or patio, looking at other creations is a great way to be inspired.
Container Planter Ideas and Tips
- Using the Thriller, Filler and Spiller concept is always a good choice.
- Choose annuals for planters that will be successful and bloom all season. Make sure to pack them in for a fast and full planter, especially if you have a short growing season.
- Consider adding a few perennials in planters for diversity. Many will over-winter and can be used again next year. Alternatively, you can plant them in the ground before winter sets in.
- Water well, meaning saturate until water is coming out of the pot, and less often. Usually, that means watering every third day when there is no rain. However, if you live in a very hot climate or are having a hot spell you may need to water daily.
I love to get my hands on plants and start creating beautiful flower container gardens as soon as they are in the store. However, that may mean having to cover them if there is a frost warning.
For now, I'll be looking at Pinterest and other gardening sites for inspiration and I hope that some of the ideas listed below will be an inspiration for you.
