Best Planter Plants

So you’ve got your stylish new planters to add that finishing touch to your outside space. However, the next decision you need to make is what will you put in them. The good news is the opportunities are endless! Here’s our guide to the best planter plants.

The Best Planter Plants

Beautiful Blooms

Colourful plants that will come back every year are a great choice for planters. Not only will they brighten up your garden, but the bees and butterflies will also love them too.

Some of the best planter plants if you want flowers to be the focus include begonia, geraniums, and marigolds.

Delicious Fruits

There’s just something about growing your own food. Fruits are perfect for growing in a planter. Start off with strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. Voila,  you’ll have your own harvest for making jams and preserves.

The Planter Kitchen Garden

Imagine you needed some basil for your pasta sauce. How good would it be if you could just nip into the back garden to get it? You can if you plant herbs in your planter. Herbs are some of the easiest planter plants to grow. They don’t need a lot of space and you can use them in so many dishes. Parsley, mint, and basil are all good choices. Want a side salad with your favourite dishes? No problem, planters are perfect for growing tomatoes and lettuce. Other vegetables you can grow in our temperamental climate include green beans, peas, peppers, potatoes, and radishes.

Choosing the Best Planter Plants for You

When you’re planning your planters, the sky’s the limit. Do you want pretty blooms to make your garden look gorgeous when you’re entertaining? Do you want to grow fruits to make jam you can spread on your morning toast? Or do you want salad greens and tasty herbs on tap?

Whatever you decide on, make sure your planters are perfectly positioned for success. That means thinking about the number of sunlight plants will need as well as what they need to flourish. The right soil, good drainage, and the right amount of nourishment will get you off to a good start. Of course, when you’re thinking about the best planter plants for your garden, think about what you’ll actually enjoy growing too. Then sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labour.
