Choose the Right Planter Material
Containers come in a wide variety of materials; balance your decor with the needs of your plants. There's the more traditional terracotta, which is highly breathable. Concrete is classic but also tends to be more expensive. Glazed ceramic pieces can give shine and a pop of color to an outdoor space while still offering affordability. Think you'll be rearranging a lot? Plastic planters give gardeners a lightweight option that also offers an array of color choices and designs.
Try mixing and matching the rich and various colors of zinnias, such as a pink and yellow combination, to coordinate with a sturdy ceramic pot. For plastic containers, try a textural combination of blue calibrachoas and purple verbenas.
