Practical and aesthetic for interiors and exteriors
The use of flower pots is mainly practical as they allow you to plant plants without growing them on the ground, but let's not forget the aesthetic side. Anyone who wants to make their garden unique and inimitable can turn to the wide range of vases on the market: shapes, sizes and colors of the vases will help to personalize the exterior of the house, making them pleasant even from an aesthetic point of view.
The pots can contain any kind of plant. Medium-sized fruit plants are grown quietly even in pots, while flowering ones are ideal for decorating both indoors and outdoors. At home you can also keep medicinal plants such as aloe, while in the kitchen it is possible to place jars of marjoram, parsley and other plants useful for the preparation of tasty dishes. Perfumed plants such as lemongrass are also ideal to hold in pots, essential for driving away annoying insects like mosquitoes.
Therefore, the vases not only have a practical function, but are real furnishing accessories. On the market there are any colors and shapes to adapt to every need. Let us remember, however, that cultivating a potted plant requires cures that depend solely on ourselves. However, there are numerous benefits, such as the possibility of moving plants from one place to another, placing them in areas with a climate favorable to the development of the plant itself.
In short, when it comes to vases there is only the embarrassment of the choice, but before proceeding with the purchase it is always good to also evaluate the characteristics of the plant, so that it is not subject to shocks that could cause its death.
Features and types for the right choice
The purchase of garden pots is indicated for anyone who wants to grow plants but does not have the right soil. Poor quality soils take up water and nutrients too quickly are certainly not fit for purpose. In these cases it will be good to opt for cultivation in pots, also supplying an industrial soil free of harmful insects. Generally speaking, the latest generation soils should offer protection from plant infections; however, if one of the plants becomes infected it is advisable to remove it immediately from the pot and isolate it so as not to spread the infection.
The pots make it possible to grow and cultivate various types of plants. The herbs are ideal for growing in pots, especially because the latter will allow you to easily move your plants from the outside to the inside and vice versa.
Even fruit plants can be grown in pots, as long as you are careful to choose one of suitable size. Before proceeding with the purchase it will be good to get information and advice from an expert florist.
And what about the material the jars are made of? the choice must be made on the basis of parameters such as the needs of the plant, the climate of your area and obviously the economic availability.
Plastic jars are undoubtedly the most widespread and economical, easy to transport and to clean, resistant and versatile. Their use can be combined with that of additional plastic furnishings for the garden, such as tables, chairs and gazebos.
The plastic tolerates temperature variations well, it is also waterproof and does not absorb water. Mold and lichen do not damage the plastic, which is why the jars can be left outdoors for a long time.
Although not considered the ideal material for exterior decoration, plastic vases lend themselves to creative experimentation of all kinds. For example, in the case of flowers such as orchids, you can opt for a transparent plastic vase that exposes the soil to sunlight, allowing optimal plant development.
On the market it is also possible to find stone vases, ideal as furnishing accessories even inside the houses. These vases combine practicality and aesthetics, as well as offering a remarkable durability. Wanted for their innate elegance, they are containers used since the dawn of time and capable of offering great potential.
The weight of a stone vase prevents the wind from moving it, although it can create difficulties if you want to change the layout of the furniture. Resistant to shocks and deformations, stone vases adapt perfectly to the cultivation of any kind of plant, not to mention that they are unlikely to be damaged by pests.
The strength of this material means that the pots can be left in the garden in any weather condition as they are not afraid of cold and heat. The only precaution to be taken is to clean them periodically from mold and lichens, so as to preserve the original beauty over time.
There are infinite variations of these vases based on their shape, style and workmanship. The classic models have a single hole in the bottom to prevent water from stagnating.
Smoothed or polished, opaque and rough, decorated with ornaments or bas-reliefs, the features are endless and suitable for every need.
From a purely aesthetic point of view, stone vases offer a remarkable impact within any garden, standing out decisively in the midst of other materials. Capable of impressing guests and giving your garden a classic atmosphere, the stone vases are the best choice to embellish villas by the sea or the most elegant buildings.
The most used color is undoubtedly white, but lately even black is very fashionable. In the latter case, take care to position the vase in a bright environment, or you risk seeing it go unnoticed.
Pink, yellow or ocher vases are equally decorative, although they are not too showy.
To exalt the aesthetics of your garden to the maximum, terracotta vases will not be missing. It is a natural material, perfect for making vases as terracotta is not perceived as a stranger by the plant. Furthermore, the walls of the vases are capable of absorbing excess water, always keeping the soil soft thanks to the porosity of the terracotta itself.
Resistant and light, terracotta vases are easy to move but at the same time offer good stability and weather resistance, provided that the thickness of the same is adequate.
These are vases that are generally considered pieces of furniture, capable of breaking the austerity of a home and giving a touch of color to the garden. Although not a valuable material, terracotta vases can enrich gardens and homes with original designs that have nothing to envy to materials like marble.
