They say the way to Dad’s heart is through his stomach, so why not say Happy Father’s day this year with a ‘Pizza Planter’? It is a fun and playful way to tell all the Dads out there how much you care – plus who can resist pizza? The key to this planter is combining all the elements into one planter, or a cluster of planters. So what makes a perfect pizza? It must have tomatoes, peppers and plenty of tasty herbs. We’ve selected some basic herbs for our planter, but you can let your imagination go wild with some tantalizing combinations including cilantro, parsley, hot peppers, plus a wide variety of basils.
Putting it all together is simple and straightforward. Plant your tomato in the center of the planter and place your pepper plants at around 4 and 8 o’clock (as you look at a clock face) and place the basil at 6 o’clock. You can tuck the rest of the herbs around the backside. Don’t be afraid to pack that planter. You’ll want to include a tomato cage to keep things tidy as your garden grows.
Planter Types –
- Whisky Barrel
- Plastic Planter
- Stacked Pots
- Set of Pots

Soil – Organic is best. You’ll want soil that will drain well. We carry a great selection that are perfect for this project. Stop by and talk with our staff. You should include either a granular or time released fertilizer that will keep those plants fat and happy.
Making the pizza together is something you can do as a family making it the perfect Father’s Day present!
