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.
