Alexandrin. Plant Stand. September 19th , 2017.
Starting on the floor, with the taller plants off to the side, it is possible to put more plants on ever taller plant stands placed behind each other to create a virtual bank or wall of greenery and flowers which will not take up too much space in a room. There is a great variety of plant stands available, those that stand by themselves for just one plant, others that come in a set of two or three at various heights. Yet others come in spirals with platforms for several flowerpots, or in the form of a baker`s rack that holds even more potted plants. There are also plant stands that can be folded up for storage, when no longer needed and others that have wheels for easy moving. Depending on the size of the plant, as well as the kind of pot used, one also must consider how sturdy the plant stand is constructed. A huge fern in a clay pot needs a considerably more solid stand than a small geranium in a plastic container.
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.
Plant plunks or stand often go in areas where you think must have something there but there isn`t any. These places include but are not limited to corners, near the foot of the stairs, and near windows. Now, it`s important that you don`t overdo it. You may feel like your home interior is empty due to a lot of untaken space, but you shouldn`t crowd it either. Simply put a few plant plunks in a few areas in your home so the plants can add some color in the interior and the wrought iron plant plunk adds to the design.
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.
