Halette. Plant Stand. September 24th , 2017.
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.
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.
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.
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.
An outdoor plant stand is typically used to add height to potted plants. Other benefits include a decorative way to group plants together, such as herbs or flowering plants, and outdoor plant stands can also provide more ground space for additional pots of plants or other outdoor items. They can also be used as a place for indoor plants when bringing them inside for the day or season. Prices vary on average from less expensive, about ten to fifty dollars, to more expensive, about one to three hundred dollars. Many different designs can be found on the Internet (at online merchants, auctions, or classifieds), at local garden stores and larger retail stores that offer gardening supplies, or even through the newspaper. Another factor in the price will be in the specific characteristics or features you want or need from the stand.
