A Vibrant Planter

The earth tones of this small decorative terracotta window box are topped with the fiery reds and oranges of the plants flowers.  The fuchsia with its orange foliage and tubular scarlet flowers, the orange nasturtiums and the red clay like flowers  of the feathery leaved lotus.  We have many clay rectangular planters in our terracotta pot section so check them out and find one that you really like.  Then create this look for yourself!

Step 1 - Is to cover the base of the planter with drainage material.  You can use gravel as shown or pot shards, packing peanuts or pot filler, which we sell in our pot accessory section.  You don't want to block the drainage hole with compacted dirt or the plants root systems will rot.
 
Step 2 - Fill with potting mix and add a teaspoon of fertilizer.  Plant the fuchsia in the center of the window box container.  Then plant the nasturtiums along the back of the planter so you can stick the lotus in the front.
 
Step 3 - Place the two lotuses in the front on either side of the fuchsia. Water the soil thoroughly, leave it to drain and stand it a sunny place.  This stunning fuchsia is worth keeping for next year.  Pot it up in the autumn, cut back by half and overwinter on a window sill or in a heated greenhouse.  Plant in Late spring or early summer for most success.
