Best Kitchen Wall Planter
Home cooks, rejoice! This clay pot wall planter set is not so large that it will take over your kitchen, but, with nine clay pots you can grow a great herb garden within arm’s reach of your simmering pots and crisp salads. The copper frame coordinates well with many kitchen decor styles, especially if you have copper pots, pans and bowls.
Best Kids’ Wall Planters
Want to add a bit of magical whimsy or elevate your kids’ bedroom décor? A unicorn wall planter, made of ceramic and done up in a glossy white finish, is one playful choice. This planter works equally well in colorful surroundings or minimalist rooms. If you love the idea of incorporating animals, but draw the line at unicorns, you might prefer this lion, giraffe, rhino or pug!
Best Plant Propagation Wall Planters
If you love creating baby plants from your big plants, but don’t like the look of a collection of bud vases or other propagation vessels sitting around, consider this attractive, affordable set of wall planters. Keep an eye on the baby plants’ roots in the clear tubes and let the colorful holders turn your green thumb into wall art. The creator/seller recommends mounting these planters on the wall with 3M hook-and-loop tape, available for $1 extra per vessel.
Best Sculptural Wall Planter
We love this lady wall planter because it injects a little bit of Romanesque romance into your indoor or outdoor space — precisely the opposite of most of the geometric and modern wall planters on the current market. Plants growing from it become her hair, thoughts or imagination — creating a new piece of art with every plant. Made of cement, it adds natural texture and variation in color and tone, and contrasts nicely with modern hard edges.
Best Wall Planter for Air Plants
This artful wall-mounted planter from Sundance is great for air plants, because they don’t need standing water, or soil, which makes wood vessels (that can’t be used for other plants without a liner) a viable option. These beauties are handmade from pine or birch, which allows for some variation — just like nature. When you water your air plant, make sure it’s dried off before you put it back in the vessel. Bonus: If you’re not a green thumb, you can use this planter for dried or faux flowers, too.
Best Outdoor Wall Planter
If you want to really splash out with a wall of plants in your yard, this five-tier, self-watering vertical garden has a lot to offer: Constructed of cedar wood and metal, it’s as pretty as the plants it hosts, and it will stand up to the outdoor elements. Grow everything from basil to begonias, cacti to chard in five, six-foot-long planters, which are equipped with self-watering drip irrigation and drainage diverters. Comes with liner, hangers and mounting brackets for easy installation.
Best Succulent Wall Planter
If a show-stopping conversation piece is what you’re looking for, consider the Williamette Steel wall planter, because it brilliantly shows off the best part of nearly every succulent: the top! A zinc frame — which comes in three finishes: aged, black and rust — comprises nine small planters. The overall effect, once fully planted, is art for your wall.
Best All Around Wall Planter
These Arcadia Garden wall planters are available at The Home Depot for a wallet-friendly $13 each, and boast a simple design in several colors and a matte or shiny finish. They’re flat on one side to lay flush against the wall, and the liner prevents water from seeping into your wall. They can be used indoors or out.
Best Living Wall Planter
Florafelt’s pocket-style wall planter is made from recycled plastic bottles and features breathability, moisture retention and easy reconfiguring of plants within the system with its root wraps — like a swaddle blanket for the roots! Create an entire living wall with flowers and foliage, or your own gourmet herb garden with either 12-pocket or four-pocket styles.
Hanging Wall Planter
With some flush-mounted wall planters, the plants don’t get enough natural sunlight, especially the side next to the wall. This hanging planter helps you sidestep that problem with a hanging rod that can be mounted in a window or on a wall. The ceramic pots have drainage pans so they don’t drip on your countertops or floors, the ropes can be custom-cut to the length you desire, and the rod comes with ceiling-mount hardware, which may work better in your situation. Very customizable!
Best Cottage-Style Wall Planter
The 36-inch English garden window box from Hooks and Lattice marries the best of both worlds: The vintage styling of an English garden with thoroughly modern powder-coated steel construction, for durability. And, It arrives with the coconut coir lining, which is often a separate purchase with this wall planter. The liner encourages plants to thrive, thanks to easy drainage and breathability. If you have wood, stucco or masonry exterior siding, you can purchase mounting hardware made specifically for those materials.
