Are you ready to get outside and add some colorful planters to your home? A new spring is just about to start, so it’s a great time to begin!
If you already have some planters, you might want to start with Spring pots now! Follow our blog (enter your email —>) to get a link to download our FREE booklet on spring container ideas!
If you are new to container gardening, you’ll want to start by getting a couple of planters by your front door. I like to use concrete planters by the front door, so I can have them planted all year. Concrete can stay outside all year in freezing temperatures AND are heavy enough that they won’t get blown away. In Kansas, we have to worry about both of those issues!
Have the planters stained in a color that goes with your home. You can either match it to the body of the house or to a contrasting trim color. I like both options. It’s whatever you prefer!
The idea is to create a focal point…Invite your guests and show them the way to find your entryway! It’s okay of you don’t have room for 2 planters…One grand planter works just great too!
What’s next? a) Prepare your planter with potting mix b) Determine your sun exposure and c) Get shopping! Gosh, we could write a book on these topics…WAIT! WE DID JUST THAT!!!
