1. In a corner
Convention dictates that hanging baskets are for ferns, but these modular wall-mounted planters are reason enough to break the rules. The stackable column of containers—customizable to any height—is a striking way to bring life to a dead corner.

3. Up the wall
Sometimes, there's nowhere to go but up! Tap the growing potential of your walls with these innovative vertical planters.

Are you tired of fussing with plant markers? A chalkboard frame makes it easy to keep tabs on what's about to sprout.

5. Along a room divider
When it comes to carving an open-concept space into separate zones, a folding screen is an old decorating standby. What makes this room divider revolutionary is its capacity: 13 built-in brackets to hold a baker's dozen of your go-to blooms.
