Great Smelling Garden Containers



 8958-Potting-Fragrance

When it comes time to think about what you want to plant in your garden containers this season do you ever stop and think about the fragrance you want to plant?  Usually it's the colors, types and durability of the flowers or plants but not so much the smell of the flowers.  Well we want you to re-consider.

If you are going to the time and expense to buy and pot up a lovely garden planter we want you to think about using plants that look lovely and SMELL heavenly.  There is nothing nicer on a hot summer night to sit outside on the porch or patio after the sun has gone down and look at and enjoy the planters that surround you.  Each tiny element adds so much to your comfort and pleasure.

So, here is a list of some of the best smelling plants that are easy to pot, truly lovely to look at and availability to find at most garden centers.

 8954-Potted-Gardenias

Gardenias - If you haven't smelled on of these bushes then you are really missing out.  The fragrance it gives off is truly heavenly.  Even though gardenias need a bit of TLC they are easy to pot up and place around your home where they can be enjoyed.  Make sure to pot in a large enough container with good drainage and moist acidic soil.  Known for their stark white delicate flowers they are not only beautiful but undeniably have a strong fragrance.

 8956-Potted-Lilac

Lilac - Another bush that can easily be potted and placed around the patio or porch.  While pretty easy to care for these potted bushes will need room for their roots to spread so don't skimp on a small container.  You don't need a large bush to get their lovely scent so try starting a bit small.  They really like full sun and moist well draining soil.  Their color is beyond wonderful.  Check it out!

 8955-Potted-Lavender

Lavender.  Who doesn't love lavender?  A garden planter over flowing with lavender is really breathtaking.  The scent of lavender has been around for centuries and loved by many.  Their little purple flowers and spiky stems make any garden container looks vibrant and romantic along with that distinctive scent.  Don't over water these and keep the pots in full sun with good air circulation and you will have a welcome addition to your porch or patio display.

 8957-Potted-Roses

Lastly the one that everyone know.  Roses!  Who doesn't love the scent of roses.  They are symbols of love and come in so many colors and varieties that you could pot up 10 containers and still not try them all.  They do need a bit of work when it comes to pruning and watering but basically they like full sun and  moist soil.  If possible place the flower pot in a location where you can not only see the potted flowers but smell their sensual fragrance whenever possible.

Fragrance in a Flowerpot



 8877

Planting fragrance in flowerpots is a easy way to surround yourself and your patio or porch area with lovely smelling flowers. Filling your planters with lush greens is lovely and appealing to the eye, but how many of the plants smell heavenly?

Make sweet smelling fragrance a daily delight. All you need to do is fill your planters with the suggested plants we suggest below and then place those garden planters in specific places where you can enjoy the fragrance.

 8874

The key is to use a variety of fragrant plants that release their perfume at different times of the year.  Just imagine your garden rising and falling thru the seasons, with flowers, foliage and scents every changing.  Soon you will find yourself stopping to smell the entryway planters every time you leave the house. Our sitting on the patio a bit longer so you can enjoy the sun and the scent.  All good things.

 8871-Wisteria-Potted

Wisteria is beyond heavenly when it comes to great scents.  It can grow large so you will need huge pots with a trellis or placed again a garden wall that it can climb.  The stunning colorful flowers are lovely enough but with it's vanilla fragrance you will get the best of both worlds.

 8872-Lily-Of-The-Valley

Lily of the Valley gives off a big scent so don't be fooled by it's small flowers.  You can smell its scent even while walking by it no matter where it is placed.  How wonderful is that.  One bulb fills a 4" square space so make your planter large and plant 5 bulbs to get a great display of flowers and fragrance.

 8875

Bridal Bouquet (abelia)  In spring there is nothing more scented than this potted plant.  This strong fragrance can waft at least 15 feet away from the pot.  This plant is a scent factory that just keeps on giving.  It blooms from late spring to early summer with it's lilac scented pink buds and white trumpets.

 8873-Black-Negilee

Lastly, lets look at Black Negligee (actaea) with it's fruity smell.  It's foliage is purplish black, lacy and sexy.  By midsummer, tall wands are covered with small white flowers.  This one is exquisite and sweet smelling.  The perfect potted flowers for your garden.

Food for fodder is harlequin glory bower, Oriental lilies, Pink Dawn, Winter sweet and Sweet Box are all lovely smelling.
