JENNA KATE AT HOME
When considering the best plants for your planters this summer, the type of container you choose can make a big difference in the overall appearance and success of your plants.
When choosing a large planter, consider both its material and design. Resin planters are lightweight and weather-resistant options, while Terracotta or ceramic planters offer a more traditional look.
To save on using a ton of potting mix (and making the planters crazy heavy!), I like to put some of the empty plant containers at the bottom of the large planters, before topping with potting mix.
Window boxes are an easy way to bring color and life to the front of your home, especially when you’re dealing with small spaces. Window boxes obviously are meant to hang in front of windows, but you can also get ones that hang over a railing, which is perfect for a deck or balcony.
When creating container gardens for summer, you can rely on the tried-and-true Thriller, Filler, Spiller formula.
Whether you have a sunny spot or a shady corner, you can create a stunning display this summer. All the plants I’m sharing are also low maintenance and just require some basic deadheading and regularly watering during the growing season.
