I think Strawberry Pots of any size or shape are my very favorite. I have two of these old plastic pots. They didn't have holes in them when I bought them. They were prefect for what I wanted and I had Ric cut holes in them with a hole saw. I also put a PVC pipe in the middle of the pots when I plant them. The pipes have holes drilled in them and when I water these types of pots I fill the pipe with water and it leaks out slowly and at all levels of the pot. Here are two pics from last year with a good look at the pot and one showing the pipe.
I'll try to get a current photo of them tomorrow. My Dad came down earlier this summer, he was cleaning out the basement and brought me quite a few pots. Most were ones I had planted and gave Mom for Mothers Day. There were three terracotta Strawberry Pots. I filled them all with mostly the same plants as that was what I had leftover. Begonias & Impatiens maybe a few other plants but mostly just those two. I set them out front not too far from the front porch. Two on one side of the Caladiums and one on the other side of the Caladiums. Have to look close as the pots are almost buried.
Those are my "Blue" pots. I love blue pots. I have 6 of them that I use out front 2each in 3different sizes. There are only 5 of them out there this year. I'm using one of the smaller ones for another plant right now. I do have some other blue pots but they aren't put with this grouping. This older pic is the only one I could find where you can see the pots.

I was in another cubit and saw this link that Allison had posted for a great website Sideplanting.com. There are lots of photos of nice combination plantings in addition to the types of containers used to make them.
I have been looking at these Chocolate colored clay pots. When I first saw them I wasn't sure about them. I like them but I'm not sure how many I would want. I could fill a room with the regular terracotta ones. So I picked up three of them the other day for a new project I'm working on.
Have any of you seen these and do you like them?
I'll try to have the wall planter done tomorrow. I'm making it crowded now and will thin it later.
I just saw the chocolate clay pots at Lowes the other day. I think a few with the terra cotta will make a nice accent. But I don't know if I would want a lot. I imagine they would really set bright foliage or flowers off nicely. Maybe bright coleus in them.
No, I won't hang it yet. Not until all the roots take hold. Each compartment slants slight upward to keep things in place, but since it newly planted. I'm going to hang in on the west side of the house next spring. It will get sun for part of the afternoon there.
