Here is my first little gathering of pots with plants in them that I took photos of this morning on my patio. I also want to advise you on the best plant caddies to buy, which is detailed below.
I’ll be working on the other areas of my patio in the next few weeks. I typically head to the nursery on April 15.
That is a pot of alliums in the back.
How I Arrange Pots On My Patio:
I typically gather around 3-4 pots together in one area and then leave room to walk around them. This guides the eye from one area to another.
My Japanese Maple and Ginkgo Biloba trees are getting their leaves. I need to figure out where I want to roll them to.
Speaking of rolling, remember last year I had most of my heavy pots placed on rolling plant caddies? My teenage grandson lifted them on the caddies for me. Which made my life much easier.
Tip On Which Plant Caddies To Buy:
I have a tip for you though. I ordered various ones at first. The first couple of orders of plant caddies I bought didn’t hold up. So if you’re going to order, it’s best to go with heavy duty plant caddies or you’re probably wasting your money.
The problem with the others is that the wheels often won’t roll under the weight. Which means you have to pull it yourself. And you may as well not have them at all if you have to do that.
I’m going to have to order a few more. And I have learned from experience to buy these in the photo above.
Heavy Weight Plant Caddies Are Best:
Some of my pots are big and very heavy. And these 14 inch wide Bosmere S14410 Down Under Plant Caddies have held up. In fact they have 5 stars on Amazon.
I advise you to not waste your money on the other ones unless your pots aren’t very heavy. And obviously you wouldn’t be buying this size caddie if your pots were light.
The first ones I bought are just taking up space next to my potting bench. If they won’t roll under the weight, they’re useless to you.
