This project was inspired by an article in the July 2014 Edition of Southern Living Magazine. The article featured a photo of a small planter which had been filled with a number of decorative plants. This Venetian urn was purchased from Market Imports (Near the Raleigh Farmer’s Market) and was quite a bit larger than the one in the article.
It is important not to over-crowd the planter on the initial planting. The plants will grow significantly once planted, so make sure to account for this. Placing gravel, or some other well-draining material will prevent overly wet soil in the base of the urn.
