Large Planters Buying Guide

Choosing the right size for large plant pots

How to Buy Large and Tall Planters

Whether its large trough planters or tall pots for garden, large plant pots can act as a bold feature in your interior or a focal point for your spaces.

For a visually striking display, use one or several large garden pots of good volume that can accommodate the roots of your plants comfortably.

Less sizable containers can also deliver stunning looks, but with them comes the necessity of more frequent watering and feeding compared to large garden pots.

Choosing the right size for my large plant pots

The sheer variety of large garden pots could be causing you some indecisiveness about sizes. When choosing large planters, one idea is to use the rule of thirds, which is based on the agreed upon most visually-pleasing proportion and is used in both interior and exterior design. First, visualize your desired container along with the type and height of plant you have in mind. Your plant container should occupy either one or two thirds of the total height.

Keeping plants looking stunning in large garden planters

With large garden planters it’s important to make sure that your plants are optimally watered by ensuring that some water is expelled via drainage holes in the bottom of your pot. Additionally, always ensure that your large plant pots have sufficient drainage as failure to do so could lead to rot in your plant roots. Creating further drainage outlets is easy to achieve by drilling or carving extra holes into the base, however, it’s better to buy large plant pots already fit for purpose.

To keep your large garden planters photo worthy, always remove dead flowers, thereby encouraging more growth. Don’t forget to fertilize your large garden pots regularly throughout the growing season.
