Take your garden to new heights with planters that add extra interest to your garden
The key to a good year-round garden is variety. By now, you already have colorful plants for each season, arranged systematically around your garden to ensure that it is fully in bloom no matter what the weather. Likewise, you have a combination of ground plants and towering bushes that is pleasing to the eye. However, you might enjoy the pop of color and interest that comes with planters spaced around your garden. Planters usually hold your flowers and mini-shrubs a few feet above the ground and accommodate small plants that might otherwise never stretch more than a few inches above the dirt. Whatever florals and plants you have in your garden, a planter can add visual appeal and interest to give your space more depth and vibrancy.
The type of planter you choose may depend on the specific qualities of your garden. If you have a garden comprised mostly of flowers, then you will likely want some sort of accent flower in your planter. You can choose a plant with plenty of blooms, or opt for one with a statement single bloom instead. You can also choose to feature only one plant in your planter or you can throw on your gardening gloves and switch out your plants from season to season, to ensure that something is green and growing in there year-round. If you have a vegetable or kitchen garden, then you may want to use your planter to grow some plants that need a little more protection. Since planters sit a few feet off the ground, they are great deterrents for rabbits and ground rodents that might literally eat the fruits of your labors. If you want to grow strawberries, for example, you could grow them in a vertical planter that allows several plants to sprout out of holes in the side. This puts them out of reach of intruders while giving them plenty of room to grow.
The size and style of your planter may also determine the types of plants you choose to grow. A small, towering planter will only have room for a single statement bloom, while a box planter may have space for several different types of plants. If you are placing a planter in a window or on a deck, you may enjoy the space and versatility that a box planter provides. If you need something to stick in your entryway corner, a small single-plant planter is the way to go. Large stone planters are best left out in the garden, while lightweight metal or plastic planters can be easily moved around patios and porches. Indoors, you may prefer a decorative wooden or glass planter that accents and highlights the features of your home while displaying a lovely plant for all to see.
