If you want to be a gardener, you need to find the right pots for your baby plants.
The most frightening part of moving from the attic to the garden was watching them load the old one behind the disposal van.
It wasn’t my first rhodo – three years ago I saw a mature polagonium shrink in the process by half, and then I saw the contents of my first porch being loaded into the parking lot. This time we managed to get to the balcony, and it soon became apparent that I needed more pots.
I put vegetables in containers – and only containers – for the best part of a decade and the pots themselves remain a sacred heritage. I don’t know why, but there is still a gap in the market for beautiful and durable containers that do not require a packet.
About a year later, I was able to collect my yard collection. Is there a parking lot for good pots? Sadly not. Is hunting fun? Fortunately, yes.
A few basics before you start searching. Container material is key. In addition to the beauty of the garden, there are other factors to consider. Below I explain what you need to know. The content affects how much money you spend, from watering to watering.
Instead of trying to figure out what to look for, try to find one that works for your plants.
Shaded city garden? I invest in some large stone or corrugated iron plants and fill them with ferns and other wild stuff – divine.
Exposed wind area? Excavation and moisture retention of a large container made from sleeping again causes the grass and wildflowers to sway. A veranda gardener? Plastic pools help with weight and bags (two sizes of plants are perfect) can be folded up and down empty.
No matter what you choose, I always recommend that people buy a large pot that they can buy for many reasons. Larger pots are less maintenance-free – they dry faster and can hold more resilient plants that require less code.
I like big items because I can put a lot of things in them, all of this comes out at different times of the year. From a design standpoint, a large, well-fitted container always looks better than a variety of pots. Especially in a small place.
My style is really misleading in its cruelty, so my plants contain old clay pots, refurbished chimneys, old metal baths, and two toy pools. None of them are more than 20 cm, most are more than 40 cm. They carry bulbs and years and occasionally carry an annual indicator, but they usually take care of themselves.
Stimulating them has added to my unwavering interior decoration. Near my first veranda, I myself have three stone pool pools that I lost at a loss, and now they greet me at the back door.
