Hi all ..I received these 2 lovely planters for my birthday from the kids , just struggling with what to plant in them , anyone have anything similar or any suggestions I’m all ears ? Thanks
Anything which needs a big root run, or forms a biggish rootball won't last long in them.
The 'mophead' grasses will be fine, and they look good in that shape of pot. I'd also agree about the 'box ball' type of plant, which also looks very good in that shape. SOme of the Hebes naturally form that ball shape, and migth be easier than box,depending on your gardening ability etc.
All of those will give year round colour and form, assuming you pick an evergreen grass.
It really depends on the type of look you want though. You might want a riot of colour at this time of year, so would prefer pelargoniums or similar. You can do both [ three if you do spring bulbs as well] if you plant into a plastic pot and insert them into those, and just change with the seasons. A little layer of gravel will hide any gaps if you can't get square pots to insert
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
