Oh, Grow Up: Boxwood Planters

We’re on a gardening binge, and can’t resist showing off this perky planting.

The Greens Cube from Blomus

Not to get all flowery on you, but here in our home base of the Berkshires, we spend almost half the year pining for growing season, if only so we can experiment with the imaginative array of planters on the market. Whether it’s a steel tub filled with sunny geraniums turning their faces to the sky or a classic ceramic pot painted in a spunky stripe and holding a chipper mix of pentunias, the right container can make your signature style sing.

For this simple-to-maintain look, Annie started with the Greens Cube from Blomus. Thanks to its clean, graphic shape, practical materials that can stand up to almost anything the Berkshire skies dish out, and ability to hold a profusion of cheerful greenery—in this case, hardy boxwood shrubs—the Greens Cube is the essence of Happy Preppy.  When choosing a planter, find one that suits the exterior of  your house.  These updated  and cleaned up classics are the perfect compliment to their mid century modern home.

[…] Fresh American loves planters with style, indoor and out. Whether a zig zag planter or a huge cube for small shrubs and trees, it’s important to match your planter to its contents. Check to make sure there’s enough space for adequate roots when choosing a ceramic planter. It’s best to find a ceramic planter with a hole for drainage, but you can always add a layer of rocks or gravel to keep your roots from getting too wet. Other planter ideas range from DIY to statement pieces for your patio, porch, or even living room and kitchen. […]
