There is nothing like the feeling of watching your landscaping flowers bloom in your flower garden or flowerbed. Watching them spread and color, the air is a sight to behold. For those of you who don’t have a large garden to work with or an open space to set your flower landscape on, landscaping with plants for small pots can be an effective alternative. In this article, I will outline some tips on how to properly plant these small plants.
The first step when it comes to landscaping with plants for small pots is to determine what plants will best compliment your landscape. Understand, too, that most potted plants will only thrive if they are held securely in large pots that are large enough for them; therefore, the larger the pot, the better for your delicate plant. To make sure that your plants receive the proper amount of light and water, plant them accordingly in well-drainable soil and adhere to their required care routine. Make sure, also, to mulch the plants every few weeks to help retain moisture in the soil. Most flowers require approximately six hours of daylight and four hours of darkness.
When it comes to plants for small pots, there are literally thousands of options available to you. Cacti and shrubs are very popular options, but there are many indoor plants that would be equally at home in any small pot. My favorite indoor plants would be African Violets, Pennyroyal, Hyacinth, Mimulus, Sedum Autumn Joy, Mimulus, Royal Hellebores, Moonbeam, Shasta Blue, Queen Anne’s Lace, Foxglove and White Butterfly. As you can see, there is no shortage of plants to consider, but there are just as many choices as well. Some of my favorites would be Sedum Autumn Joy, Queen Anne’s Lace, Sedum, White Butterfly, and hydrangeas because they all require very little maintenance, require very limited sunshine exposure and have exceptional growing conditions. When choosing which plants for small pots, it is important to remember that each plant has its own requirements and plant heights so if you have a tall plant or one with unusual heights, you may want to consider another choice.
Plants for small pots come in a wide variety of colors, too. If you have an indoor herb garden, you can grow a wide assortment of herbs with the benefits of potted plants. Popular herbs for outdoor gardening include basil, chives, dill, parsley, tarragon, and oregano. You will also find that some flowers, such as roses, come very close to their natural state and can even be used in place of a houseplant because of their small size and fragrant nature.
If you prefer flowers that do not grow too well and are more time consuming to maintain than potted plants, you may want to consider having flowers grown in your flowerbed. Some of the most popular flowerbed plants include Chrysanthemums, Hyacinths, Peony Flowers, and Pansy Flowers. The Chrysanthemum is one of the most popular choices because it is easy to care for and looks stunning against any backdrop. These flowers are perfect for container gardens because of their tolerance to dry soil and lack of need for much attention. If you have a well-drained pots, you can easily fill a container with these flowers and still not use too much water. In addition, these plants do not grow very large and are quite easy to care for.
Hyacinths and Peony Flowers are another pair of plants for small pots that do well in containers. Hyacinths have beautiful blooms that go spectacularly with pots. These flowers are not very expensive and are easy to take care of in a container garden. Peony flowers are a bit rarer than the average flower but they are equally gorgeous. They are also known for their fender-like growth and hardiness, which make them suitable for outside living spaces.
As for watering, it’s a good idea to keep your growing plants as hydrated as possible. This means that you shouldn’t do your watering too often – especially during hot weather when the soil could get dried out. When watering your plants, you should only water them a couple times each week – nothing more. In addition, your small pots will drown if you over-water them, so you’ll want to keep the water level within the area of your plants’ roots as low as possible.
For this article, we’ve looked at some of the best plants for small pots. Specifically, we looked at the benefits of these plants for anyone looking to provide indoor plants or a window box for their patio space. If you’re looking for a nice, low maintenance plant that is easy to care for, then these would be the plants for you. But please remember, this will require a bit of extra work on your part, but it will definitely be worth it to have beautiful indoor plants for your home.
