Garden planters create interest in the garden, provide extra growing space in small gardens, and contain plants, such as mint, that can otherwise become invasive.
You can purchase pots and planters at garden centres and other stores, made from plastic, metal, pottery, cement, wood and terracotta, for example. Or you can create planters by recycling ‘found objects’ from around home or the wider community.
Make sure your chosen planting container is large enough for the plants you have chosen. The options are limited only by your imagination!
