What doorway is complete without a pot of flowers welcoming you home everyday? We're putting together our cutest container garden ideas and this pink and white ceramic pot certainly qualifies! A beautiful and soft flower pot design for your front door, patio or stoop.

We start by crushing 4" grower pots into the bottom of the pot, to help keep the soil and roots out of any excess water. Also, we recommend a good quality free draining potting soil that contains peat, perlite and coir or bark.

The taller plants are placed in the back of the design, so that the small plants can really shine up front! White foliage plants like Dusty Miller, really create sophisticated container garden look. The Muehlenbeckia (Maiden Hair) will trail outside of the pot, softening the edges.

Substitute in your favourite spring and summer plants, along with interesting foliage additions, for a fun doorway planter!
