14 Designer Planters for Spring


14 Designer Planters for Spring

I was going through photo’s from past seasons and I came across about 70 gorgeous pictures I took from trips to Chicago and Seattle in the last 2 years that I know I haven’t shared yet.

This HAD to be rectified… How could I keep these beauties to myself! Now this post is not for the color blind, in fact, you may even need to put some sunglasses on because it’s like a flower bomb went off all up in here.

Here are 14 Designer Planters to check out. Enjoy!

Let’s start with one of mine. I loved doing up designer planters and throwing them out on the floor at the garden center I worked at. This baby didn’t even make it out of the potting shed and it was bought… but I managed to snap a picture of it before the happy customer hauled it away.

Most of the pictures in this post are from a lovely little nursery down in Seattle called Gethsemane Gardens. They are amazing floral artists there!

This one was shot in the Northwest Flower and Garden Show 2 years ago. I love the wood in combination with this color scheme. Beautiful!

Gethsemane planter with lot’s of tropical’s in it… use them in summer for outrageous color through the leaves alone.

This is a picture of one of my planters here at home from 2 seasons ago. It’s featured in my eBook:

Love the warm tones in this one. That black pot shows the color off well.

Another adorable tub planter, chartreuse and pink look amazing together.




This planter is a combo of perennials and annuals, don’t be afraid to mix it up!

Did you see a combo you love but want to know what the plants are?

There is so much flora and fauna in this post, it would have taken me forever to write out all the plants in each. BUT, I’m happy to tell you what they are if you need to know. Just leave me a comment and I’ll respond or email you with the info πŸ™‚

Remember how I said I have over 70 photos! This post shared some planter ideas, but I have some future posts coming out very shortly on:

  • Curb Appeal Garden Designs (for beds and borders)
  • Window Box Container Designs
