Planting the Urns on My Summer House Terrace

I love beautiful ornamental urns filled with lush, green plants.

As many of you may know, I have a rather sizable collection of tropical specimens at my Bedford, New York farm. During the winter, they’re all stored in a special greenhouse. Once warm weather arrives, they are brought out for display - some go to my home in Maine, some to my residence in East Hampton, and the remaining plants are placed in various locations here at Cantitoe Corners. Recently, my gardeners Ryan McCallister and Gavin Curran filled several large planters with philodendrons, Mexican fan palms and Alocasias on the terrace behind my Summer House. They’re all so easy to plant and maintain - they’ll look wonderful all season long.
