Planters are a great ad­di­tion

The Galloway News - - BURST INTO BLOOM -

Gar­den planters, pots and con­tain­ers are a sim­ple way to add in­stant style to your liv­ing space – whether that’s house­plants in the hall­way or con­ser­va­tory or to cre­ate a pretty ar­range­ment on your pa­tio or dot­ted around the gar­den.

For every gar­den, big or small, there is a plant­ing so­lu­tion. If you don’t have much out­door space planters and pots are the per­fect way to add green­ery – with small dec­o­ra­tive trees, top­i­ary and sea­sonal plants on pa­tios.

Larger gar­dens can still em­brace pot­ted plants to beau­ti­fully frame a lawn or, for a clas­sic look, planted box in square wooden planters can be used to flank a door­way, gar­den gate or line a path.

Glazed pots are a great way to add a splash of colour to brighten up a small space such as a ter­race or a front gar­den. Sim­ply plant with laven­der for a wel­com­ing scent or an ar­ray of colour­ful bed­ding plants.

Al­ter­na­tively you can use con­tem­po­rary colour­ful planters in­doors, to dis­play your favourite house­plants.

El­e­gant planters sim­i­lar to those in coun­try gar­dens in gal­vanised steel and rus­tic ma­te­ri­als will add time­less beauty – these taller con­tain­ers are per­fect for feath­ery or­na­men­tal grasses.

Con­tem­po­rary pots will look fan­tas­tic with sculp­tural plant­ing and so­lar lights in an ur­ban gar­den.

A wooden planter makes an at­trac­tive fea­ture in any gar­den and pro­vides sup­port for climb­ing plants and shrubs.

Get the chil­dren in­volved by pro­vid­ing them with their own lit­tle coloured planter to tend.

Hav­ing a trel­lis at­tached means you don’t have to buy two sep­a­rate pieces, or be lim­ited to only plant­ing next to a fence that can ac­com­mo­date climb­ing plants.

Also a great buy­ing so­lu­tion to cover up other­wise bare brick walls.

Large ter­ra­cotta planters: These are in­spired by old Por­tuguese tiles and these beau­ti­ful planters are a move on from tra­di­tional plain ter­ra­cotta pots. The hand-painted de­sign is per­fect for adding a pretty touch to in­door plants or cov­ered out­door liv­ing spa­ces.

Metal planter: The on-trend cop­per fin­ish of metal planters has a unique fin­ish that will weather with age, adding to the rus­tic ap­pear­ance.

Wooden square planter: This is a more tra­di­tional, square planter which will en­hance your gar­den with its clas­sic good looks.

So this sum­mer why not make a state­ment with some im­pres­sive planters or tubs placed around your pa­tio area, bal­cony or gar­den.
