Getting The Most Out Of Your Planters


My love of gardening is no secret. I’m a bit of a plant nerd and have been known to spend hours wandering through nurseries looking at all the different plants and flowers. But let’s be honest: not all gardens are created equal. Some people have huge backyards with plenty of space for their flower beds, while others live in small apartments with tiny patios or balconies that don’t afford much room for planting anything at all! Fortunately, there’s an easy solution for both types: planters! These containers are great for growing plants indoors or out, depending on their size—but what makes them even better is that they can be used year-round if you pick ones that are frost resistant. So how do you choose the right one(s)?

When you choose your pot, make sure you think about the plant inside.

When you choose your pot, make sure you think about the plant inside. You want to select a pot that can support the weight of your plant and is large enough to hold soil. Think about how much water will be draining out of the pot when it rains on your planter. Finally, make sure it’s something that’s easy to clean and move around if necessary.

You can’t just grab any kind of plant and shove it in a planter.

There are many, many plants out there that you can put in a planter, but not all of them will thrive. If you’re looking to get the most out of your garden pots and make sure that they look good and stay healthy for as long as possible, take a few things into consideration before choosing which plants to buy:

  • Choose plants that are suited to your climate. Plants can’t survive if they aren’t given the right conditions (like sunlight), so be sure to check what type of plant would thrive where you live before purchasing anything from a nursery or garden center. If there’s no way for you to know how much sun your area gets throughout the day or how cold it gets at night during certain seasons (or both), then just ask someone who knows about gardening! You’ll want your pots filled with thriving greenery instead of dead brown leaves by January at all costs!
  • Choose plants that are suited to your soil. Some soils might have too much clay or sand in them—and these clays can hold onto too much water while sands let their earth get too dry quickly—while others may have an acidic pH level when these levels should be more neutral or basic instead; this could lead one kind of plant thriving while another dies off because it wasn’t able enough nutrients!

If your plant is a climber or a hugger, you need a trellis.

If you’re going to grow a climbing or a hugging plant, such as tomatoes or peas, you need to think about how you are going to support it. Otherwise, the weight of your fruit and vegetables will pull down on the vine, making it flop over and become tangled in itself.

If you have limited space in your garden area and don’t want to go with an expensive trellis structure from a home improvement store (they can get pricey!), consider using branches or twigs from other plants that are growing nearby. This is also an option if your plant is too large for its container and needs something sturdy sticking out of the top like this tomato vine here:

If your garden area has enough room for a standard sized pot…

Location, location, location!


Plants need soil to grow, but not just any old soil will do. If you have clay or hard-packed sand, you may want to consider adding more organic material for better drainage and aeration. If your soil is sandy and drains well, then make sure there are plenty of nutrients in the mix as well.

All plants need some sort of fertilizer at least every other week during their growing season (spring and summer). You can use an organic fertilizer such as compost or manure or something more commercial like Miracle-Gro or Oxypotting Up Your Garden: A Blog article describes how to prepare your garden for planting season by tilling up your ground and adding composted materials

If your planter is large enough to have multiple plants in it, consider color and shape.

If your planter is large enough to have multiple plants in it, consider color and shape. Use different species of plants to create a pleasing color scheme:

  • Use reds, oranges, and yellows if you want to make an impression on people walking by your door. These colors are eye-catching and demand attention.
  • Use greens with white or purple accents if you want to give your outdoor space a soothing feel. These colors are relaxing both because they are common in nature (grass being green) as well as familiar from our homes (white walls with green trim).
  • Use reds, oranges yellow/greens with purple accents if you want something that stands out without overwhelming the senses (like an orange tree next to a lemon tree).

If you’re going to go with annuals, research the best kinds for your region!

If you’re going to go with annuals, research the best kinds for your region! Annuals are usually the easiest plants to grow. They can be grown from seeds or transplanted from another garden. It is important that you choose an area with adequate sunlight and water.

It’s important to take care of your plants if you want them to thrive.

You can’t go wrong with a planter. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors and materials that give your space that unique look you are going for. What do you need to know about how to choose the right one?

Plant selection is also important because some plants require different care than others. When choosing your plants remember:

  • Some plants like water while others prefer dry conditions so make sure you pick a plant suited for where you live.
  • Fertilize regularly during the growing season by adding fertilizer directly into the planting mix or soil at half-strength once every two weeks (if using liquid fertilizer) or once per month (if using granular).

If possible use organic fertilizers such as compost tea or worm casting tea instead of chemical fertilizers because they are healthier for both humans and pets who might accidentally eat them if left on top of soil surface overnight where pets tend sleep under large pots overnight when cold weather comes early each year in fall months prior spring blooms start showing up around March through April depending upon region location within USA zones 6-9


With a little bit of time and care, you can make your planters look great and keep them healthy. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different plants, colors or shapes—just remember that if something doesn’t work out, don’t stress! Just try something else next time!
