I recently purchased a small tricycle plant stand. It has a wire basket on the handle bars, one on the seat, and one on the back, each can hold a pot with a base diameter of about 4". Unfortunately I bought the thing online and it didn't list the dimensions. The photos were very deceiving and I thought it would be about 2x the size and planned to put my potted herbs on it. Well those pots just aren't going to fit, so I bought 3 basic terracotta pots of the appropriate size.
Now for the fun part... what should I plant?! It's going to be sitting beside a bench on my small front porch. It will be getting direct sun in the morning. Because the planter is so compact, I should be able to bring it in for winter... or maybe I could plant it seasonally?
My mother-in-law suggested Irish Moss, and I maybe wouldn't mind it in one of the three pots, but I don't think it has quite the impact I'm going for. My front porch is a pretty boring block of concrete and the bench beside it is also concrete. I need to add some interest!
