Plant beautiful flower pots and display around your home to improve your outdoor living areas and your home’s curb appeal. Just choose one of the examples below and take the list of plants to the greenhouse with you. Easy as pie!
Plant beautiful flower pots to sit on your porch steps, both sides of your front door, or on one or both sides of a walkway onto your patio or deck.
Have a successful trip to the greenhouse
It’s a good idea to write down ahead of time what plants you need for your flower pots. As a result, your greenhouse trip will be more enjoyable. Greenhouses who have containers already planted are an excellent source to copy for your containers as they usually have the flowers you need for it nearby. Maybe you can afford to buy one already made up for you. I say, go for it.
Here are some ideas of pots I made, and some that I bought already planted over the years. There is a list of the plant names under each one that you can write down or take your smartphone to the greenhouse. Ask one of the workers in the greenhouse if you can’t find the exact thing you want and save the aggravation and time of trying to locate it. I’ve found they usually know where everything is and are happy to help. Or you may prefer to have the plants sent to you by clicking on the Burpee Flowers link on the sidebar.
To plant beautiful flower pots, they need to be in the right sunlight or shade. If a plant you like requires full sun and you have mostly shade in your yard you should look for a different specimen. Planting in the wrong location will only frustrate you and waste your money.
