Garden planters are a great way to add style and design to your garden or the apace you have outdoors. The benefit of garden planters is that they come in so many different shapes and designs there one to suit almost any space or taste of the gardener. Garden planters can be free standing, with tall or short pots that add a definition of height and textured to different flowers.

Shorter ones are great to give the garden or space a more professional result that looks well organised and designed. Some garden planters such as baskets and hanging baskets can be used to mount the wall either side of a door, on a balcony or in a limited space against a fence or post.

Beautiful trailing flowers work best in here to disguise most of the baskets and have them gently following down the side. Pinks, purples, reds and whites are a great way to add colour from spring all the way through to fall. Basket garden planters can be bought pre-made with liner, soil and the flowers, the benefit of this is all you need to do is buy the correct sized bracket to hang the basket on. You can buy your own planter and soil, as well as seeds of flowers and save some money by doing all by yourself.

Garden planters can be bought from many stores with a garden or outdoor section; some markets also sell beautiful garden planters pre-made. The biggest choices however is a garden centre where they garden planters come in different colours, materials and sizes.

 Garden centres can advice you on the right size pot for the type of flowers or shrubs you wish to purchase.
