Metal planters add a distinctive look to a garden and are a durable, sturdy choice. The modern appearance of the metal, contrasted with lush greenery creates a stunning look that is suited to contemporary gardens and urban environments. Knowing how to prepare a metal planter for planting is key to creating a healthy environment for the plants. Before planting, ensure that the planter has adequate drainage. Create drainage by propping the planter above ground level. For even better drainage, line the bottom of the container with chips of wood or gravel, this will help reduce the weight of the pot. If you are using a larger metal planter, position the planter before beginning planting. Avoid moving larger pots when planted and never drag or push them as this may scratch the base of the planter or the flooring. If positioning a metal planter in direct sunlight it may be worth considering planting trailing plants around the edges to provide shade, or to line the pot with newspaper or coffee filters to help insulate the plants from potentially overheating. When the weather begins to change, and the growing season is over be sure to empty the planter and store it safely for the winter months.
