A summer garden just isn’t complete without beautiful planters containing beautiful things. Whatever look you’re going for, we can help. We’ve compiled a list of creative ways to plant up your own stylish wooden planters.
For the budding chef
Why not plant some herbs in your planter? Not only will it make your garden look extra beautiful and give it more incredible shades of greens but it will also add a purpose. Adding some fragrant mint, rosemary, thyme or basil can all be very helpful when it comes to the kitchen. We recommend adding in some lemongrass into the middle of these herbs for a more striking look.
Bright and bold
If bright colours are your thing, we know just what you need. For bright pinks, we recommend rhododendron or azaleas, or begonias and dahlias. Want to go the extra mile for that pink colour? Why not plant your very own cherry blossom tree! For yellows, the staple flower is a sunflower and honestly, it’s beautiful on its own but pairing it with daffodils and tulips can really give your garden the bright and airy summer feel it deserves. For a cooler colour flower, like blue and purple, we recommend delphiniums and hydrangeas.
Keep it green
This may seem unusual but keeping things green can enhance your garden and what grass you have, giving your garden a ‘full’ feel. Try planting some collard greens for an easy and versatile southern garden feel, that not only looks good but will taste good too! To really get your green thumbs going, try planting some other vegetables and leafy greens such as cabbages, leeks, potatoes or cauliflowers. Greens work well with almost any container, so you can’t go wrong!
Show your true colours
Got something special you love and want to represent the colours in your garden? Maybe it’s a football team or another sports team, maybe it’s one of the pride flags or maybe it’s just one of your favourite colour combinations, embrace it in your garden aesthetic when planting out your planter.
Drought friendly plants
Topping your container with smooth stones, pebbles and sand and adding a succulent plant such as an agave is certain to jazz up your garden, giving it a slightly desert feel! This type of plant is particularly good if you live in hot, humid climates as they don’t require much water or maintenance.
Keep it simple
Adding something simple like a single tree or maybe a rose bush is a fantastic way to use your wooden planter. You could even add giant daisies or another meadow plant for a simple but elegant cottage style look. If you’re looking for something more contemporary, a single yucca or cordyline.
Bursting for the Bees
All about harnessing the bees for garden power? Why not fill your wooden planter to the brim with some wildflowers? These annuals are great for bees, butterflies and helping to pollinate your garden. What’s more, packets of seeds are budget friendly and produce an abundance of colour and flowers in variety.
