the brixton long
Are you using a Brixton planter to create privacy? Plant taller plants into the Brixton Long! Japanese Camellias (Camellia Japonica) will add a pop of colour, and paired with a trellis, create a beautiful living wall.
the brixton railing planter
Try pairing this planter with English Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia). Its soft, pastel colour and light, calming scent will promote rest and relaxation in your outdoor living space.
consider the size
The ideal size plant for a planter is one where the root ball is only about a few inches smaller than the inside of the planter. When a plant is too small for a planter, soil can hold too much moisture, which can lead to root rot. If a plant is planted into too tight of a container, the roots will suffocate and won’t be able to draw enough nutrients or moisture for the soil.
Do your best to match a planter with a diameter 1" – 2" bigger than your plant's diameter.
The only time you should consider larger planter is when you are repotting, or transitioning your growing plant into a bigger pot. If this is the case, place your growing plant into a planter that has roughly 2" – 4" of extra space in diameter.
the brixton cube planter
Looks great with a Boxwood Sphere (Buxus Sempervirens), which juxtaposes straight lines and sharp edges with round curves.
the brixton window box planter
For the Window Box, we recommend Rosemary (Salvia rosmarinus). This plant’s lush, strong demeanour perfectly complements a Window Box and effortlessly garnishes your Veradek Outdoor Kitchen. It will also smell amazing!
the brixton tall planter
Because of this planter’s height, we recommend planting a tall, upright plant such as an Agave Plant, which will contrast the soft, geometric lines of the planter with its bold, sharp leaves.
Choose your plants based on seasonality and climate. Our Brixton Series planters are built to withstand any weather, all year round, so pick a hearty plant that can do the same! In colder climates, evergreens are a great choice. In hot climates, plants that do well in sunlight and high temperatures are a safe bet. Want to change it up depending on the season? You can do that too! Our planters will set a great stage for seasonal arrangements.
