Babette. Plant Stand. September 27th , 2017.
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.
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.
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.
Since plants need light, it is best to place them near a window. In many homes, unfortunately, that is also where the heater is located. If that is so, move your plant display to another bright area in the room and possibly consider adding a light, especially made for growing plants, nearby. Whether you choose a clay pot plant stand or any other container plant stand indoors, make sure you place a tray or dish under your plants to prevent water damage to your floors when watering.
Next, you should select a metal plant stand which is in proportion with the plant, or plants, you intend to use it for. When you`ve got a little, delicate potted plant, like a pot of primulas, you don`t want to display them by using an enormous metal plant stand. Equally, if you have a huge flowing fern, you won`t want a small, stubby metal plant stand. If uncertain, keep a picture of the plant on you when you`re shopping for your stand so you can get an idea in your mind of the size and width of stand that will suit it best.
