Fauna. Plant Stand. October 20th , 2017.
Typically, a wrought iron plant stand is placed on either side of a double door - if you have one. If your front door is a single, then you can put a plant on the pivoting side of the door. However, don`t let this article limit you. Use your imagination. Think about your home and what plant stands and bended iron designs would look good. The more you put your imagination to use, the more unique your home`s style would be.
Last but certainly not least is the corner stand. This type of unit generally provides a number of shelves that offer spacing for plants and they fit into corners. This stand also allows you to go outside the box. You can create a grouping of plants such as a herb garden in the kitchen and even mix in a few non plant items, maybe a cook book or two and a container with cooking utensils. When looking for a stand you should keep in mind the plant, your taste and personality. It should bring you pleasure! Decide the type that will fit with your decor and the plant that you are placing on it. There is a wide variety out there. Plants stands should complement the plant and enhance the space bringing beauty into your home!
The good thing about wrought iron is the fact that it is easily molded despite being very sturdy. This means that there are an unlimited number of designs for any ironwork made out of wrought iron. It`s best that you choose a design that emphasizes the beauty of the plant that`s going to be sitting on it. For instance, if you have a plant with long leaves, then you may opt for a really thin design to make your plant look like it`s floating or being help up by its leaves. At any rate, once you have the design you want, it`s time to accentuate the place where you`re going to put the ironwork.
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.
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.
