You also have to think about color. Always consider the colors of the flowers of the plants you will be displaying. Complementary colors or neutral tones should be considered when purchasing a plant stand. Size is also important. Make sure that your plant pot will fit on top of the stand. The top of the stand needs to be a little larger than your container. This will be more aesthetically pleasing as well as stable. For plant stands to remain standing upright, all that is usually necessary is a solid and level floor. When displaying heavy or large items, you should take care to get a stand that can support the weight while still being appropriate for your flooring. As an example, a pedestal of light weight probably would not be the right thing if the floor has plush carpeting. If you have hardwood floors, however, this base will work just fine.
The material from which a plant stand is made is only one variable, though. The actual style of stand can vary significantly too, presenting you with many decor and plant display options. It is this great variation in size and styles that enables you to use height and shape so effectively in interior design, especially in wide open areas such as large entrance porches and lobbies, adjacent to sweeping staircases, and in spacious living areas with wide areas of bare boards or tiles.
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.
Small and delicate plants like a pot of Primulas and huge ferns may look great if placed in a sturdy metal plant stand. However, it is very important to make sure that these metal stands are huge enough to hold any type of plant containers or planters to protect it from sudden movements and unwanted damages over time. Such type of stands can be availed from a variety of metals such as brass and cast iron. However, they can be subjected to corrosion or rusting. To make it last longer to use, you need to apply a metal sealant or a metal spray paint to ensure protection and durability.
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.
