What can you grow in garden planters? It’s not a natural place to grow shrubs, climbers or perennials: they get too dry, they run out of food, you need to feed and water them regularly, and then they grow too big. Surely you can really only grow annuals? Well, no. The answer is that you can grow pretty much any plant in plant containers, as long as you choose the right container.
It’s important not to use plant pots that are too big or too small: too big, and the soil may go bad; too small, and the plant will get root-bound and not grow well. So you may need several garden plant pots over the lifetime of the plant, especially if it grows quite big. And you also need the shape to be right: so that the rootball fits into the pot comfortably, with about the same amount of space all around it.
But that’s the joy of using Precious Design metal planters for your plants. There is such a variety of shapes: tall, cubic, square, tapered. And with
most off-the-shelf designs and shapes available in several sizes, you can choose the right shape for your plant, and know that you will be able to buy new garden planters the same shape when you need them. And if you get bored of the original colour or finish, just choose a new one for your new pot, perhaps even a custom finish. Your old pot, in the meantime, will go on to be home to a new plant, and will look great grouped with your new one.
