Planters Ideas: How To Fill In Tall Planters

Check For Drainage Holes 

The biggest error gardeners make is overwatering beautiful plants. Because of the bacteria and fungi that thrive at the bottom of a planter with good drainage but too much water, plant roots may perish. It seems that the majority of individuals care for their plants too much.

Most plants require a healthy environment to survive, which demands sufficient drainage. Even if adding a suitable drainage hole to your planter is not the only way to guarantee plant development, we advise it, especially for outdoor planters.

The drainage holes in planters provide a lot of assistance by ensuring that additional water will seep out, even if every plant parent should be conscious of their babies’ moisture levels.

Prepare Filler For Tall Pots

Use space savers in the bottom part of the planter rather than potting soil. The planter will get lighter due to using less soil and water. Perfect filling materials that are probably available nearby include the following:

Lightweight pot fillers:

  • Packing materials: styrofoam blocks or packing peanuts (foam blocks) are suggested.
  • Recycle materials: Empty plastic containers can be recycled to conserve space; some examples are milk jugs, supermarket bags, soda and water bottles, and aluminum cans.
  • Short-term use material: Find many natural items nearby, such as wood chips, pine cones, leaves, and sticks of all sizes. Newspaper or recycled cardboard can also be used. Over time, these materials will deteriorate and enrich the soil with nutrients.

Heavy pot fillers:

Heavy pot fillers might be shattered pottery, crystal, brick, huge pebbles, or wood logs. We use heavy materials to support a huge tree in a lightweight container or do permanent installations.

Secure The Fillers In The Pots

Separate the filler from the soil using a layer of newspaper, cheesecloth, or landscaping fabric. This will keep the contents from dropping through the gaps.

Prepare Soil For Potting

Fill the planter all the way to the top with potting soil. You can use any soil you desire, but pre-fertilized high-quality potting soil saves you time and is lighter than garden soil. To enable water to drain properly and offer your plant’s roots the best opportunity of spreading and taking root, use potting soil for indoor plants.

Put In Your Plant And Enjoy

Finally, add your favorite plants and enjoy your beautiful container gardens again! If more potting soil is necessary, place it around the plants and water according to the instructions.
