Hello, my name is Nicholas Staddon. I’m with Monrovia. And today, we’re going to talk about flower planter tips. We could be here all day, but alas, it’s a big world in flower planter tips. But, first of all, let’s talk about containers. There are so many different shapes, forms, and sizes that work beautifully together. So, ere on buying a larger size container, versus a smaller one. The mulch you should use should be a really nice organic-style mulch that holds lots of moisture. And remember, when you put the plants into the container, put a little bit of slow-release fertilizer in there as well. You can plant shade plants in a container if you got a place on the patio and have full sun as well. Plus, you’ve got all your garden as well. But, we are just going to focus on containers for this conversation. Now, you can go with a single plant in a container. This gorgeous Gardenia – oh, I love the fragrance! You can go with a Euryops and have a great display all summer long. Would look lovely in a full-sun spot. But, I think that you should be more creative, and what I love to do is to really unleash your creative side and use perennials. This plant is called Geranium Rozanne. Use that with a Cenizo – gorgeous blue, a Heuchera called “Lime Rickey,” and to really show off the Lime Rickey, you can put some Sedum in there as well. Yes, they might look a little crowded, but they’re going to look stunning. And, if you really want to unleash the beast, you can use one of these great new Cordylines called “Festival Burgundy.” This plant will probably end up getting about three feet high and about three feet across. So, but you can see how well all these plants work together. So, bearing in mind we’ve got several plants in here, during the hot weather, this container will probably need a drink at least every other day. If it’s cooler, maybe not quite so much. But, you can see the amount of fun you can have with all these beautiful plants. This is Nicholas Staddon from Monrovia, with flower planter tips.
