Beginner's Guide to Iron Planter Boxes
How to Use Planter Boxes
Iron Planter Boxes are durable, simple to use and add a dash of rustic charm to any garden. There are several effective ways to plant flowers in planter boxes:
1. Place an already planted flowerpot into the planter box. Depending on the size of the planter, several flowerpots may fit. Arrange them in a way that is attractive and colorful. Use bark, moss or other materials to fill around the pots, giving them a uniform appearance.
2. Line the planter box with a moisture mat liner. Liners ensure that the soil stays moist and that plants stay insulated. When a planter box is lined with a moisture mat liner, plants don't need to be watered as frequently. If a flower dies or wilts, it is easy to change liners and add fresh plants to the planter box.
However a gardener decides to use their planter box, it is always important to take good care of the plants and give them regular attention. Fill the container with quality soil, leave at least an inch at the top of the container to allow for watering, remove faded growth, and regularly feed the plants liquid fertilizer. This ensures healthy flowers that last.

Gardeners with limited space might want to plant in metal hanging baskets or wall basket planters, which add style to a small garden.

Planter boxes are a great addition to any garden. If they are planted correctly and cared for properly, they can become a focal point of any outdoor space.
