Tips and Ideas for Using Trough Planters

Everything you should know about choosing through planters

Charming and functional trough planters are an ideal choice when you want to experiment with your gardening design and organise a bright display of colourful flowers, aromatic herbs or even seasonal vegetables. Decorated tastefully, they can become a focal point for the entrance of your house, kitchen windowsill, patio, or garden. Here, at Getpotted.com we have prepared some tips on how to get the best out of your trough planter.

What do you need to know when buying planters?

Trough planters are a great, inexpensive alternative to other containers. They are very simple to use and are exceptionally durable.

You can get creative by incorporating different sizes and finishes, or paint your outdoor planters to match the colour scheme of your living space or garden. Yet, keep in mind that trough planters are relatively heavy, so define the area in which you want to place them in advance.

When buying a trough planter, make sure they come with sufficient drainage. If necessary, drill extra holes in the bottom of your trough container to allow water to drain out thoroughly. Place gravel or a similar material at the bottom of the trough planter to help with the water drainage.
