Patio Planters

You may want to spruce up your home’s front entryway but you don’t have the time or knowledge to grow sprawling flower gardens. Or, you may not live in a home with a spacious yard and outdoor patio. Planter pots are the perfect option to add pops of colour, show-off your green thumb, and save time in your yard. Here are a few tips to create the ultimate patio planters.

Choose the Right Size of Patio Pots and Planters

One advantage to choosing planter pots is they are available in a variety of sizes and shapes. This makes it possible for you to find the perfect item for your front porch or to line up on your small balcony. Remember, that when you chose to plant in container pots, you want to ensure there is proper drainage and you don’t overcrowd the pot with your plant choices. You can talk to experts at TERRA Greenhouses about the right size of patio planters for your needs.

Decide Beforehand Where the Plant Will Be Kept

Where you choose to keep the planter pot will greatly affect the type of plants and flowers you wish to grow. For example, if you want the pot on a covered balcony, look for flowers that do well in shaded conditions. However, if you want your flowerpots at the end of your walkway, you may need to consider flowers and plants that can tolerate direct sunlight.

Plants to Consider Growing

There are many plants that will create patio planters with ample colour, texture, and design. Below are several examples of flowers that tend to grow well in container pots.

  • Geraniums

Geraniums will add lots of colour and texture to planters of all sizes. You can find these flowers in a variety of hues, helping you create a planter that adds the curb appeal and the focal point that you desire.

  • Petunias

Petunias are a garden favorite and come in such a wide variety of colours that you can liven up any container. These flowers are ideal for expert gardeners or those with little gardening experience because they are easy to grow and require very little maintenance. They are also perfect for full sun areas.

  • Marigolds

Planting Marigolds in your planters is a simple way to create a stunning floral arrangement and will make all your guests stop and stare. These flowers bloom throughout the entire season, ensuring you have gorgeous flowers and lots of colour for every summer party.
