    A good friend of mine built me this planter out of scrap wood. I then added the flat rocks and marbles to decorate it. Now I need some suggestions for what kind of plant to put in it. Suggestions please. IMG_20161006_171124.jpg

    Something that will cascade over the sides,..like Sweet Alyssum,..the white or the purple would do,..or Campanula,..it will hang over the sides very well.

    Welcome to the Forum,..that's a nice planter and someone took time to make it,..top marks to them :like:

    Your friend is a very talented person and so are you! The decorative rock and marbles made even more attractive. Is it going to be used inside or outside? Either way I would want a delicate trailing plant that wouldn't hide too much of your pretty pot and a taller upright plant in the middle.

    Gosh I wish I had a friend like yours!! What a lovely planter and I agree that a delicate trailing plant would look wonderful in it.

    Gorgeous and unique planter. I'd plant something in the middle that is tall and leafy and a few other plants that cascade over the sides.
