Babette. Plant Stand. September 24th , 2017.
The first place to consider is garage sales. I have come across plant stands by the hundreds when I go out to garage sales and the best part is they are extremely cheap. You can have great finds with home décor items like this at garage sales and they are definitely an original piece of furniture that I would bet is rare if it is a truly good find. The only worry that I have come across is the condition. I would just make sure there is no rust or visible damage. I have come across some plant stands with water damage and rust damage and it would not be worth buying if it is falling apart. Unless the damage adds some sort of character to the stand that is not going to leave rust stains on your carpet, by all means ring it up. Most plant stands at a garage sale should run you around $5-$15 depending on size and material it is made out of.
Another place to consider in your search for an indoor plant stand with character is at flea markets. This is what flea markets are all about. Many flea markets tend to have a bunch of mixed items all together but many do not even realize that you can find great stands for cheap at these places. I have actually had people offer to trade me an item for a plant stand and when I had nothing to trade the man just gave me the plant stand that I was interested. It is just a great place to check out and I would check out your local flea market and see what is available in where you are located.
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.
Some plants stands are only for decoration. If in case you have a green thumb and have a ton of thriving vegetation in your house, it is a great way to present them off. You will get plants stands which have one or two spots in your plants, or you may get bigger ones that might hold eight or ten of them in a single spot. If you`re forgetful about watering, having many in one place could be an ideal reminder for you.
By allowing yourself to get the right plant stand, you must take for consideration that it is something which harmonize with the beauty of the plant and not actually distract it. In this regard, it should blend well the plants you intend to put on top of it. There is nothing to fret about because getting the right wood plant stands that will complement your house hence you are bound to sensationally knock up everyone in admiration to your place. Another factor to take into account is the need to get the correct plant stand depending on the size of the plant that you intend to place on top. This is a very important factor because having a extremely large stand for a small plant is just like wearing size XL when you are using size S. Obviously, it will still fit in but the result is an awkward look.
