Container Planting

CONTAINER PLANTING TIPS

Many of our plants are suitable to grow in containers. Clematis are wonderful on patios and balconies. Miniature Hosta and dwarf evergreens can be enjoyed at close range when grown in a pot. Heuchera, Hosta, and ferns will add a leafy abundance to a container that includes annuals. Beautiful container plantings add character and interest to a setting. Here are some tips to help plants grow well in a container.

Choose a plant that is adaptable to a container. Generally most plants with a moderate to small root system will grow in a pot, some larger growing specimens, such as shade trees, large shrubs, and deep-rooted large perennials are best planted in the ground.

Select a pot that corresponds to the size and quantity of plants you have chosen. Use a quality commercial potting mix in a pot with holes to ensure good drainage. If the holes are on the bottom of the pot, use supports for a slight lift to keep them off the ground so water can flow out. Fertilize and water carefully as needed, since containers create a smaller root zone for plants.

In cold zones, consider a plant’s hardiness. Some plants will need to be moved to an enclosed area for winter, such as a garage or cold frame, and given minimal water. Some plants will survive in a sturdy wooden planter (clay pots can crack) in a sheltered location, especially if they are rated for a zone or two hardier than the zone where they are being grown. Large pots provide better root protection than small pots. For added protection pots can be wrapped in frost blankets, or plastic pots can be sunk into the ground and mulched. Protect pots from strong winds, excessive moisture, and full winter sun, which can scorch plants. Another option is to enjoy your plants for a season in a container and then approximately 6 weeks before the ground freezes remove it from the pot, plant it in the garden and mulch around the root zone. Look for additional information specifically for your hardiness zone from your nearest arboretum, public gardens, or university extension services.
