Show #42/6603. Designing With Containers

Larger Containers Have Enormous Benefit

Eric loves Pamela's point about going big with planters. From a growing standpoint there's enormous benefit in having a larger soil reservoir. The smaller the container, the faster it's going to dry out and if you get a container too small it becomes impractical to manage. Not only do the big containers make a bolder statement there's so much more that can be done from a design and planting standpoint. And, importantly you save yourself a lot of potential headache having to water that planter constantly. Another thing Pamela has been doing a lot more in the last, maybe, 10 years is instead of just using one pot she is using sets of containers. Most of these planters come in sets of three and she's found that using the entire set gives everything much more impact.
