Growing flowers in planters is becoming ever more popular and with good reason when you see just what can be achieved. Using containers can be a necessity if you are short of space, but even if this is not a problem a container garden has many advantages. This article which I found on the Garden Lovers Club has eight examples of plant combinations that will give you some great ideas.
Gardening with containers is a fantastic activity for anyone with a green thumb,?and isn?t?only for those with a lack of space. In addition to conserving open space, you may prefer the look of potted plants, or the ability to move them around to suit your fancy. Container gardening opens the door to endless options!
The point is,?gardening is personal, and the world offers an infinitely varying buffet of options for tailoring?your garden to your tastes. In the name of expanding the perceptions of container gardening, we?ve gathered some of the best ideas we could find from around the internet.
1. Jeweled Planter
With a little silver, some jewelry, beads, or any other sparkling accessories, you can instantly spice up any container garden. Our example highlights the contrast between metallic sheen and soft natural plant colors, with a neatly complementary silver-trimmed container.
2. Garden?Trailer, Silver Falls
Using a hanging basket or planter on a pedestal, you can have long, flowing, luxuriously tumbling flowers spilling toward the ground. The waterfall effect is gorgeous and can underscore any set of brightly colored bulbs.
3. Wine Barrel Planter
This project will grant a classic air to any space it?s placed. The wine barrel design is a timeless piece of utilitarian decoration, and makes for a perfect planter. The rustic, worn look can only help to highlight the bright diversity of anything planted within.
