Five Favorites: Garden Bowls for Flowering Plants

For our May monthly favorites, we wanted to focus on blooming plants outdoors. And there’s no better way to show off an array of flowers and foliages than in low garden bowls.

As the weather gets warmer, you’ll want to spend more time enjoying the outdoors. One way to do this is to get some low planter bowls for flowering plants. Whether you have a huge backyard garden, a cozy patio, or a small balcony, planting some beautiful flowers and maybe some choice foliages mixed in will brighten up your space.

Flower bowls are a great way to display multiple types of flowers together in your garden. They bring so much color and life into any outdoor space. We love shallow, simple bowl pots with little or no pattern to plant flowers in because they really let the blooms shine and take center stage.

These pots are all over 16″ in diameter. If the garden bowls are too small, the plants will overcrowd each other, the roots will do the same, and the pot will need watering too often.
