Marveille. Plant Stand. September 27th , 2017.
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.
Starting with what I believe to be the basic is the pedestal plant stand. This is an excellent way to display the single flowering plant, trailing vines, ferns or even a picky cactus. The pedestal stand is a great way to show off smaller plants like an orchid or violet, allowing the plant to make a statement that says look at me. The single stand can be placed in empty or awkward corner to brighten the space or used to flank an entrance to a room. Tiered plant stands are a very popular design. The stand has usually three (sometimes more) individual spots at varies heights for plants, hence the word tiered. This is an ideal arrangement for showing flowering plants that look great grouped together. This type of stand looks wonderful when placed in an area that has a little space, like a foyer. Remember to fit the size of the plant to the stand.
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.
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.
Other plant stands are more for practicality than anything. When you`ve got cats, you probably know they want to eat your plants. For some causes, cats typically like to eat green, grassy objects, and so they could also be eyeing your plants. This implies it is best to find crops stands and even plant hangers to maintain your pets away out of your greenery. This isn`t only for the sake of retaining the plant in a single piece, additionally it is for the protection of your pet. Some crops are poisonous to animals and even children, and ought to be kept out of reach at all times.
