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.
We all know that plants will enhance our living space indoors and out! What better way to bring the great outdoors in! People display plants for many reasons, aesthetic value is one, enhancing the living space is always a great benefit. Keeping in mind the presentation is just as important as the plant, so this is where the plant stand enters. What better way to show off your plants then by placing it on a stand. With the right choice the plant and stand will complement each other and add to the ambiance of the room. Plant stands are crafted from a variety of material like wood, wrought iron, wicker, metal even mirrored glass. The choice of stand is determined by the style of room decor and the type of plant. Let`s take a look at some of the possibilities.
Since plants need light, it is best to place them near a window. In many homes, unfortunately, that is also where the heater is located. If that is so, move your plant display to another bright area in the room and possibly consider adding a light, especially made for growing plants, nearby. Whether you choose a clay pot plant stand or any other container plant stand indoors, make sure you place a tray or dish under your plants to prevent water damage to your floors when watering.
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.
Plant stands are both decorative and versatile and they`re not just for plants either! Actually, a nicely fashioned pedestal plant stand is ideal for displaying extra items when you`ve run out of room on your mantle or shelving. The appeal of either a living or an artificial plant is enhanced by putting it on an attractive plant stand. Unlike live plants, silk ones will allow you to enjoy greenery without putting time into watering. An artificial plant should have a stand to add to its character.
