How do I plant flowers in large planters?
Large planters are a simple way to transform the look of your front porch and add instant curb appeal to your home. Choosing a large planter ensures that everyone can see your beautiful flowers from the street, allows you to grow multiple plants in a single pot and makes it easier to grow strong, healthy container gardens.
Fillers: Fillers, on the other hand, are the opposite of thrillers. Fillers are billowy, medium height plants that cover the base of the thriller. These plants add volume and texture to your planter. When choosing fillers for your planter, try flowers like petunias, geraniums and gerber daisies.
Spillers: Last but not least, your planter needs a spiller, a vine-like plant that will tumble over the side of the container. These plants should be placed close to the edge of the planter so its tendrils can “spill” over the side of the planter. Some popular options for spillers include ivy, sweet potato vine, and trailing lobelia.
