We here to offer some sound advice on all thing plant pot related so that you and your home can enjoy all the benefits of this green trend in no time at all!
PLAN YOUR POT
Sure, you can just rush in and buy up all the plant pots in sight, which don't get me wrong is all fun and games…until you get home and find the pots too big/not big enough/the wrong colour for your space or plants you're wanting to pot. Before you start purchasing it is best to sit down and consider the wheres, whats, and tasks of the pots you're looking for. Is it a statement piece
your after? A basic slimline planter for your narrow verandah? Or something to sit in a plant stand or macrame hanger that needs to be nondescript? It is essential to work out the functionality of your pot and the space it needs to exist in your home.
The variety of pots on the market is vast and daunting and can be incredibly overwhelming if you go in to purchase a pot without a solid concept of you and your homes personal style and aesthetic. Think carefully about your style and your homes interior and exterior decor, is it a contemporary look your after or more of an antique aesthetic? Look for a pot
that resonates with you, your homes style and overall one that you love!
There is no point opting for those two gigantically oversized geometric, copper print planters if you live in a tiny apartment, it just wouldn't be practical. The pots you choose need to be size appropriate for your space but DO BE BOLD IN TERMS OF SCALE.
If you are wanting to fill your home interior or exterior with clusters of pots then it is important to create cohesiveness within your pot composition to ensure a chic look rather than a random mess of higgledy-piggledy pots! Always try to combine different textures and sizes in similar or complimentary tones to create an interesting and varied display. A rule of three works best: three different sizes in three compatible textures within the same colour tone.
IT'S AN INVESTMENT
If you're looking for a hero piece out two then it is worth investing in good quality statement pots as they will last the test of time and are sure to become a feature piece
in your interior or exterior . For more functional areas, stick to cheaper pots that allow the plant to be the shining star rather than the pot.
Plant pots can be contracted from a wide range of materials, everything from terracotta through to cement, wood and even glass. It is crucial to again consider the use of your pot so as that you can choose the ideal material that pot should be constructed from. Wooden pots are fabulous for growing herbs whilst glass pots are perfect for delicate maidenhair ferns, bigger feature trees look incredible when planted in oversized oxidised zinc planters or Grecian urn style pots
and let's face it, you really can't ever go past a fiddle leaf fig in an oversized, painted, cement planter pot.
