Fauna. Plant Stand. September 20th , 2017.
The level of winter protection required depends on where you live and how exposed your garden is. For example, in a sheltered city garden, you may get away with not protecting tender plants at all. Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to simply move plant pots and plant stands to a sheltered area of your garden. For plants that require warm environments that are potted or small enough to be dug up, simply move them indoors for the winter. Summer flowering bulbs can be dug up and dry stored in a frost free place. For larger plants and trees that are in-ground, you`ll have no option but to nurse them through the freezing conditions, using horticultural fleece and a heavy mulch covering.
Here`s where your choice of plant stand pattern can really make a difference. The good thing about wrought iron plant plunks or stands is the fact that can be decorative without the plants. Simply put, if you put some bended ironworks in the garden, the garden itself would take care of the colors while the plant plunk takes care of the style. Now if you have a well-chosen plant plunk, your garden would really look good.
You can create more impact by grouping plants together at varying heights. There are times when a single plant is such a glorious specimen that it must be shown on its own; pedestal stands are the perfect choice for this situation. But imagine walking into a room or onto your patio and being greeted by a mass of blooms amidst a backdrop of luscious green foliage. Thankfully, you can easily find two-tiered, three-tiered and four-tiered plant stands, not to mention other styles with multiple shelves and ample display space to help you create this amazing display. You can use stands to display many personal treasures. Just because it`s called a plant stand doesn`t mean you can`t show off other valued mementos and personal treasures. In addition to or instead of a plant, think about using the space for favorite photos or collections of shells or figurines or whatever else makes you smile. The possibilities are endless.
Last but certainly not least is the corner stand. This type of unit generally provides a number of shelves that offer spacing for plants and they fit into corners. This stand also allows you to go outside the box. You can create a grouping of plants such as a herb garden in the kitchen and even mix in a few non plant items, maybe a cook book or two and a container with cooking utensils. When looking for a stand you should keep in mind the plant, your taste and personality. It should bring you pleasure! Decide the type that will fit with your decor and the plant that you are placing on it. There is a wide variety out there. Plants stands should complement the plant and enhance the space bringing beauty into your home!
Small and delicate plants like a pot of Primulas and huge ferns may look great if placed in a sturdy metal plant stand. However, it is very important to make sure that these metal stands are huge enough to hold any type of plant containers or planters to protect it from sudden movements and unwanted damages over time. Such type of stands can be availed from a variety of metals such as brass and cast iron. However, they can be subjected to corrosion or rusting. To make it last longer to use, you need to apply a metal sealant or a metal spray paint to ensure protection and durability.
