After sharing my planting adventures on my IG stories, I got lots of requests to share the results of all of my labor. I am sharing some of my planters today…many of them aren’t quite full yet, and I will share the rest of them later in the summer so you can see how pretty they look when they have grown a bit.
I purchased new planters for out front this year. My previous ones were from our old house, and did not fit the style of this house, so I moved them to the back. The light stone of these new pots fits well with the color and design of the house.
What is planted: Phoenix Palms (great for high-winds), red/orange SunPatients (do better in the sun/heat than regular impatients), lysimachia (light green plant that will spill over sides of planter – my favorite draping plant), blue-bell (adds a nice pop of contrasting color).
I plant begonias in the ground in the bed that frames the house and circle drive – they add such a stunning pop of color and fill in super quickly. These are definitely worth the labor!
Our covered back kitchen and patio. I am still trying to figure out what furniture to put here!!
What is planted: Same as front pot above – my fav combo! Phoenix palm, SunPatient, and lysimachia.
What is planted: Croton plant (center), impatients, lime green potato vine.
These planters were from the old house and look great transplanted in the back yard. I like the height difference in the pots and plants.
Little corner on the counter of the covered area. I found this lavender plant at costco and used leftover plants to fill this little planter 😉
What is planted: Hibiscus plant, impatients, and heart leaf ice plant (these have the cutest little pink flowers and will grow quickly and drape down the pot).
Planting my gardens and summer planters has always been a hobby of mine. I find it so relaxing and love enjoying the beautiful flowers and plants all summer long. I had a lot of questions on what I was putting in my pots, so I wanted to share some of them with you now in case you were still in need of inspiration for your own pots! These were just planted on Mother’s Day, so they still have some growing and filling in to do. I will share an update later in the summer when they, and the rest of my planters and plants, are blooming in full force.
I used to always plant a vegetable garden at our old house, and I just haven’t found the right space for it here. I also need to plant it in an elevated garden instead of the ground – does anyone have tips on these? Easier to make or to buy? TIA for any tips!!
