Flowers in pots, tubs, and half barrels add beauty to any garden, but wholesale plastic nursery pots gardening can also be useful. For those with limited garden space, pot gardening is ideal. In addition to flowers, gardeners with a balcony, a small yard, or only a patch of sun on their driveway can grow a wide variety of vegetable crops in containers. Basil, chives, thyme, and other herbs grow well in pots, which can be placed conveniently outside the kitchen door.

Gardening in nursery pots adds versatility to both large and small gardens. Plants can add instant color to the garden, serve as a focal point, or connect the house’s architecture to the garden. Place them on the ground or on a pedestal, hang them from a porch railing, or mount them on a windowsill. Container gardening on a deck or patio can add color and ambiance to such outdoor seating areas, and a pair of matching wholesale plastic nursery pots on either side of the front walk serves as a welcoming decoration.

You can use single, large, and wholesale plastic nursery pots for outdoor decoration, but you should also consider arranging groups of pots, both small and large, on stairwells, terraces, or anywhere in the garden. Clusters of pots can include a collection of favorite plants, such as hen-and-chicks or herbs used for both decoration and cooking, or they can include annuals, dwarf evergreens, perennials, or any other plants you’d like to try. Houseplants that spend the summer outdoors in the shade make an attractive addition to container gardening. Window boxes and hanging baskets offer even more ways to add color and appeal.

Containers planted with a single species, such as rosemary or a striking variegated ornamental grass, can be stunning garden accents. Containers planted with a variety of plants are enjoyable to design and offer nearly limitless possibilities. Plants with attractive foliage and flowers produced over a long bloom season make the best combinations. One simple rule to follow when selecting plants for a container is to include “a thriller, a spiller, and a filler.” That means at least one focal-point plant (the thriller), like coleus or a geranium with multicolored leaves, combined with several plants that spill over the edge of the pots, like petunias, bacopa, creeping zinnias, or ornamental sweet potatoes.
