It is Spring! My kids are almost out of school, the grass is green (we’ve even cut it a few times), birds are chirping, and it is time to plant flowers! This month’s theme for Better Homes and Garden’s post (BHG at Walmart) was Spring entertaining. Since I did a tablescape last month, I wanted to highlight the entry. Your doorway is the first thing your guests will see when they come to your house. Make it springy with flowers!
I ordered two of these 16″ Bombay planters online and had them shipped for free to my local Walmart since they were sold out at my store. I can see why, they are gorgeous! Not only does BHG have cute planters, but they sell flowers as well!
If you have a really tall planter like this, add packing peanuts, empty plastic post upside down, or something else light weight to the bottom half of pot so you don’t have to fill the whole thing with dirt. It makes the pot easy to move and your plants don’t need that much dirt anyway.
I like to add different textures as well as heights to planters so I grabbed some grass, vines, and of course flowers. I try to get a plant with small flowers and one with large flowers. Make sure you are choosing flowers that all have the same sun requirements. Don’t mix a shade loving flower with a sun loving one.
These are my top picks for outdoor planters from Better Homes and Gardens.
I love them and I think I need a couple more for over by the garage.
Have you planted any flowers yet? What are your favorites?
