A Gardener's Guide to Planters


As spring gardens and wildflowers are blooming all around us, we wanted to share our favorite ideas for container planting. From our spring issue of Magnolia Journal,Opens in new tab this easy-to-follow formula will help you find a style you love!

Thoughtful container planting can add life and design to the patio, porch, or any other perch.
As warmer temperatures beckon us outside, container planting offers an accessible way to ease back into the garden.

Long-lasting and low-maintenance, these creations offer bursts of color and thick concentrations of growth that enliven outdoor spaces. In the groupings we share, close attention is paid to plants with similar water and sunlight needs, as well as to leaving enough room for each plant to grow. Considering these factors helps to ensure plants will thrive as neighbors, growing into a pocket garden that can last well into fall.

Here we’ve simplified the possibilities into five styles, all built around this tried-and- true formula:

KEEP IT TRADITIONAL

EMBRACE THE SHADE

SOAK UP THE SUN

ENJOY THE FLAVORS

INVITE POLLINATORS
