Calandre. Plant Stand. September 30th , 2017.
Plant stands are popular at any time of year and are used for various reasons. Giving height to the display of plants, keeping hungry rabbits at bay, preventing marks on the floor as well as the most frequent reason, to save space. Outdoors most people have plenty of room with many places to display favorite potted plants, be it on the ground, on a rock or on a wall. But, come Winter, when delicate plants need to be moved indoors, space often becomes a problem. Then pot plant stands are ideal because so many more plants can be staggered in a relatively small space.
No matter if you plan to put plants, pictures, or other items on your stand, you need to remember these cardinal rules when you set out to choose a stand. The stand should enhance whatever you are putting on it. The perfect plant stand for any type of plant is readily available, and makes it easier than ever for you to make a statement with not only your beautiful greenery, but also with your plant stands! You also need to think about what the stand will be supporting. Consider the proportions of the plant in relation to the stand carefully as you want a good balance. You want to reconsider pairing a heavy, overpowering stand with a small, decorative plant. A fern, however, would look gorgeous on a pedestal like this.
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.
Many people bring their plants indoors for winter, in the conservatory, kitchen or dining room. As well as protecting your plants, you can display them in decorative plant stands and holders to brighten your day and enhance your living space throughout the dull, grey winter. In recent years, it`s become the norm for us to have a mixture of traditional trees and shrubs with exotic plants such as tree ferns, bananas and bamboos in our gardens. It may be rewarding to grow something in the UK that you`d normally see in the Mediterranean countryside or barren desert but these plants will take a lot of care in the winter months.
One place that I have never bought a plant stand from but have seen really nice plant stands at, is at home shows. These places offer really nice quality goods for your home. They offer brand names and original finishes that are hard to finds in other places. Most of the time home shows carry designs that are patented and have numerous options for you to choose from with the best in technology available. Another great thing is that the plant stands are completely new. You can even take them home with you or if they do not have them on hand most of the time they will want to take your order and can ship straight to your door. The only negative is that they tend to be a bit pricey. Most of these booths at the home shows cost a bunch of money to rent and the prices show that. This is just another place to consider if you are looking for places to buy original indoor plant stands.
