Welcome to the May Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you, too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month, I chose to create pretty container gardens for spring. Earlier this year I received 2 Keter® Cozies Knit 2-Piece Round Resin Indoor/Outdoor Planter Sets, and I was looking forward to getting them planted! Each Cozies Knit 2-Piece Round Resin Indoor/Outdoor Planter Set contains one larger planter and one compact one. I put the larger planters on the walkway leading up to my home, and the smaller ones on my home’s small front porch.
The problem is, I wasn’t sure what to plant in my planters. I did some looking online to find spring/summer flowers that would work well with my planters. I can sometimes be a little negligent with my plants, so I needed flowers that don’t require a lot of fussing over them. I also wanted bright, pretty container gardens to add color to my home’s front door.
Petunia & Alyssum Container Garden
I found a pin on Pinterest by Garden Geeks for a container garden of petunia and alyssum. I like the combination of the vibrant purple petunias and the light lacy alyssum. Both petunia and alyssum flowers are quite hardy and don’t need a lot of care. The flowers seemed perfect for my new Keter® containers.
I decided to plant my Keter® containers with a mixture of petunia and alyssum flowers. About two weeks ago, I filled the Keter® containers with a healthy amount of potting soil before planting the flowers. After adding the blooms, I watered each container until the soil was moist.
I think the Keter® resin planters are a good home for the flowers.
The planters have a surface that can be wiped down easily and inside the planters is a removable liner. A drainage plug at the bottom of the planters can be removed to let excess water drain. I like the knit inspired texture of the Keter® containers.
It’s been about two weeks since I’ve planted the containers, and the flowers are already starting to fill out the planters. (As you can see in the photo below of one of the smaller planters on my home’s front porch.)
