FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I order a mixture of starter containers?
Absolutely! Mixing container styles is very much on trend right now. Consider selection of two matching containers with a third complementing container. Select the number of planter inserts that you will need to go with your container selection.
Do I have to purchase one of your containers?
No, but each of our planter inserts are sized exactly to fit in the containers we sell. If you purchase a planter insert and it does not fit your own container we will not provide a refund. Check out how to measure your own container and the measurements of the planter inserts.
Do you remove and take away last season's planter insert?
No, however the planter inserts are compostable. All new season planters are left at your front door or on your drive.
Can I tell you what plants or colors I would like in my planter?
My plants are dying, what do I do?
Will my plants hold up to freezing or Atlanta's summer heat?
Winter designs are created with Atlanta’s cold weather in mind. Spring planter inserts can be damaged by a late frost if not covered when temps dip below 40’ at night. We do recommend Spring planter inserts are covered overnight with a light sheet or landscape fabric when temps are expected to get that low. Summer planter inserts also come with watering instructions but ultimately it is up to you to regularly check if the soil has dried out and requires watering. This may change through the summer months based on rain and or wind.
How do I know if my plant needs watering?
It does not matter the season, planters need water and need to be regularly checked if watering is needed. The best way to do this is to stick your finger at least 2 inches into the soil. If the soil is dry, then water. Smaller plants on the edge around any container tend to dry out first.
What is the best way to water my planter insert?
Water right at the dirt level or at the base of the plant with a watering can or slow flowing hose. Never water from the top of the plant. Also, small tender plants near the edges dry out first. We recommend watering the outer plants first and then the center plants. Water until water can be seen draining from the pot.
