6 Ways to Display Your Potted Plants

6 Ways to Display Your Potted Plants

Whether you’re organising your back garden or adding a few plants to your home, potted plants add an aesthetic touch to any space.

Plants and green spaces aren’t just pretty to look at; they’re also beneficial to our health and well-being. Plants can improve air quality, reduce stress levels, and uplift our mood. 

Today, Atlas Sheds will dive into six ways to display your potted plants for a beautiful garden or home arrangement. To elevate your garden further, browse our stunning sheds, designed for every purpose. 

Creative Ways to Display Potted Plants

1. Utilise Vertical Spaces

If you have a small garden or home, vertical plants are the perfect way to save space without compromising beauty. 

Opt for hanging baskets or vertical garden frames to hold a variety of plants. Incorporate small shrubs, flowers, and ferns for a dynamic appearance. 

You could also opt for wall-mounted planters or floating shelves to adorn your garden fence or wall. Use lightweight plants, like succulents or air plants, that require minimal soil and maintenance. This will draw the eyes upward, adding dimension to the space.

2. Add Statement Pieces

Add character to your garden and wow guests with a few statement pieces. 

Choose large, tropical plants like fiddle leaf fig or monstera for a grand display. Invest in bright or decorative pots to plant them in, such as a beautifully crafted ceramic pot, to enhance the display. 

You could even add stakes featuring bees, butterflies, and other images of wildlife for a creative and unique display.

3. Decorative Groupings

Transform your green space and create visual interest by grouping plants together, whether by texture, colour, or type. 

Create a layered effect by placing taller plants at the back and shorter variations at the front. Opt for plants like tall snake plants or dracaenas behind shorter, bushier plants, such as ferns or peace lilies.

Combine different textures, such as glossy leaves with succulent leaves, for a contrasting look. If you want to go the extra mile, create a theme with your plant choices, such as a tropical paradise or a Mediterranean garden. Then, add plants that would be found in these environments.

4. Repurposing Furniture

Breathe life back into your old furniture by repurposing it to hold your plants. 

Transform a rustic ladder into a vertical garden display. You can lean it against or attach it to the wall for a secure feature, and you can add trailing plants like ivy or pothos for a whimsical display. 

Or, why not re-use and paint an old chair or stool to double as a plant stand? You can place this in the corner of your garden for a unique element. Old bookshelves are also a great alternative, serving as a plant shelf for all of your small potted plants. 

5. Seasonal Displays

Change your potted plant display according to the seasons for a fresh look. 

For spring, opt for flowering plants like daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips. Complement these with leafy plants such as ferns. During the summer, add in some tropical plants like palms, birds of paradise, and hibiscus. 

As the autumn season approaches, plants featuring rich colours, such as crotons and chrysanthemums, are the perfect choice. Arrange these with pumpkins to enhance the autumn feel. 

As winter rolls in, switch out your rich flowers for evergreens like small potted pine trees or ivy. This adds variety throughout the year and aligns indoor displays with the natural world outside.

6. Store your potted plants in a shed

Do you want a dedicated space to display your potted plants? 

If so, a potting shed is the perfect choice for you. This allows you to grow and nurture your plants all in one place, making it great for showing off your hobby to friends and family. 

Ensure that your shed has a good level of natural light and air circulation to help the plants thrive year-round. Arrange the pots so that there is enough space between them for the plants to grow.
