Planter Buying Tips

"First, you will need to purchase your planters. Here are a few tips for picking the perfect pots for your plants as well as the area you have:

  • Look at the tags on your plants to see how tall and wide they will get. Pick a wide variety of planter sizes depending on the final size of the plants.
  • Drainage is key when it comes to planters so make sure either your pots have drainage holes or you add rocks to the bottom.
  • Add height with a variety of planters in different sizes. This will allow you to create a layered look easily.
  • Create a color palette and use that when shopping. Buy planters that all coordinate for a cohesive look.

When purchasing planters, use the tips above and you will want to shop a location with a wide selection. I love heading to my local Old Time Pottery as they have a huge selection and I can mix and match my pots right there in the store. Plus, I can pick up other items I may need to spruce up my patio while I am there. NOTE: You can also shop online and pick up if you are nervous about going into stores right now."
