Alacoque. Plant Stand. June 17th , 2017.
An outdoor plant stand is typically used to add height to potted plants. Other benefits include a decorative way to group plants together, such as herbs or flowering plants, and outdoor plant stands can also provide more ground space for additional pots of plants or other outdoor items. They can also be used as a place for indoor plants when bringing them inside for the day or season. Prices vary on average from less expensive, about ten to fifty dollars, to more expensive, about one to three hundred dollars. Many different designs can be found on the Internet (at online merchants, auctions, or classifieds), at local garden stores and larger retail stores that offer gardening supplies, or even through the newspaper. Another factor in the price will be in the specific characteristics or features you want or need from the stand.
Most people get captivated by the sheer beauty of a wrought iron plant stand and are almost lured into buying one until they realize that they wouldn`t know where to put them. When a new piece of furniture is planned to be added on to a home interior, there`s always the issue of whether it will blend in with the other pieces. This is overcome easily with wrought iron patterns, but when it comes to plant plunks, you really have to know where to put them. First off, you have to choose your plant stand.
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.
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.
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.
