Spring is truly almost here! With daffodils blooming and flowering trees budding, the warm temperatures in North Carolina have us all feeling like Spring has sprung. While we officially have 3 weeks to go, now is a great time to start planning for spring planting using containers. A breath of fresh air and sign of things to come, using containers inside and out is as much about decor as it is color. Here are some great tipis from Willow House for spring planting with containers:
1. Pamper your Porch: My pick? The Botanica Tiered Planter ~ “Flank your entry with columns of color or add height to a garden landscape with the brown-rubbed black iron planter. Show-stopping with all three tiers, it can also be displayed with just one or two levels by removing baskets. Fill with pre-potted plants, or lift out the included coconut fiber liners for use with linens in the kitchen or towels in the bath.” Priced at $145.96
2. Welcome your Windows: I adore the romance of window boxes ~ my pick? The Galveston Planter: “Score a perfect 10 in the great outdoors by hanging this planter on walls or placing it on your patio or deck for just the right effect. Latticework on the basket brings to mind long walks in English country gardens.” Currently on sale for just $21.96 ~ that’s a 69% savings!
3. Bring Home Bouquets: When I just can’t wait any longer, I love to grab bouquets of spring bulbs like tulips and hyacinths and bring them home to my kitchen and office. Because they can last, you need a great planter that will early accommodate a simple transplant from your store bought pot. My pick? Morningside Nesting Planters: “Flat-bottomed planters sit easily on a table — use them as organizers in the kitchen, office or bath — and nest for easy storage. Iron swirls are removable and can be displayed either at the top of the planter as a hanger or on the bottom as a decorative element. Drainage holes included. Will weather if placed outdoors; if using outside, we recommend placing under a covered area. Sold as a set of two.” Priced at $79.96.
