Stone or terracotta pots, some lined wooden boxes or baskets, vintage metal urns or containers like old weathered buckets are all perfect to plant up and place just outside your door.
If vintage and recycled old stuff is not your thing - there are plenty of more contemporary and stylish containers that, when filled with flowers will do exactly the same job as anything old.
On the other hand if the pots are placed in the sun they will have to be watered more frequently.
It's also a good idea to deadhead all the plants - picking off any spent flowers will encourage the plant to produce more flowers.
The flowers that I have used are a pansy called Viola 'Raspberry', a light blue Muscari also called grape hyacinths, a bright pink Bellis and some light pink Marguerite daisies.
Here is a link to all the other FLOWERS - that Titti and I have done.
Titti over on HWIT BLOGG is also featuring beautiful spring flowers for your doorstep - so go over to her blog and have a look at what she has done.
Have a Wonderful Day Floral!
See you later in the week!
