Marveille. Plant Stand. September 29th , 2017.
The good thing about wrought iron is the fact that it is easily molded despite being very sturdy. This means that there are an unlimited number of designs for any ironwork made out of wrought iron. It`s best that you choose a design that emphasizes the beauty of the plant that`s going to be sitting on it. For instance, if you have a plant with long leaves, then you may opt for a really thin design to make your plant look like it`s floating or being help up by its leaves. At any rate, once you have the design you want, it`s time to accentuate the place where you`re going to put the ironwork.
This is not really a stand but is used to pot the plant in a unique and enchanting way. This is one of my favorite garden decor designed with a back to back pair of giraffes that stunningly supports a basket weave urn with a jungle twist. It is a charming way to accent any part of the garden. It is matte finish in ocher and orange earth stones perfect for old-fashion or antique motif.
Digging up your perennials for winterisation can be beneficial for other reasons. When flowering decreases or the plant starts to die out in the centre, it ought to be divided to stop it from dying out. This means you can kill two birds with one stone. It will also give you extra plants to make decorative displays on plant stands for next year. Some tender perennials such as lavender or rosemary like a period of dormancy in winter. It may be better to keep these in the garage or shed. They won`t enhance your indoor space so there`s no point keeping them in ornate plant stands, pots and holders. They won`t freeze but will stay dormant. Just don`t let the pots dry out. Some plants will not enjoy rooms with central heating; it will be a shock to their system and dry them out too much. If this is the case, you may find that it would be better to care for them outside.
Typically, a wrought iron plant stand is placed on either side of a double door - if you have one. If your front door is a single, then you can put a plant on the pivoting side of the door. However, don`t let this article limit you. Use your imagination. Think about your home and what plant stands and bended iron designs would look good. The more you put your imagination to use, the more unique your home`s style would be.
Of course, you want to make certain that the stand itself is big enough to hold your container or plant pot. A good guideline would be to leave somewhere in the region of 2-3 inches of space all around the plant container. Next, think of balance. You want to make sure that your stand won`t move or tip, either inside or outside. Think about the surface you`ll be placing your metal plant stand on. Is it a thickly carpeted surface, hardwood flooring, a timber deck or concrete floor? Heavier metal plant stands are generally gonna be alright on carpeted areas, whilst lighter stands need a firmer, flatter floor to remain stable.
