I had seen this planter in a garden centre and wanted to create something similar, so I picked up a 33cm lightweight pot from The Range for £1.99. It's going to be undercover so I didn't mind it not being terracotta. I thought it would be a nice for G to come home from school to and maybe make some plant markers to go with it.
2. Work out what you going to plant and where it is going to go. I tried the dwarf conifers in the large pots first but they looked a little silly so planted them up in the medium pots. I also planted pansies around the edge, about 6-8 per pot.
Just need to brighten up the top of this area more, maybe some wall art? And what can go in the large pot, I was thinking of a nice dark red phormium.
