Plant pots

Garden corners

The home garden is for many people a characteristic corner of relaxation, solitude, tranquility and peace. For these reasons, in our modern culture, made up of a society with compulsive and very high rhythms to support, more and more people wish and ensure that their home has a small garden available or, for those for whom this is just impossible, a large terrace. But, you may be wondering, what does the terrace have to do with the garden. Unfortunately, not all people are so lucky, both logistically and economically, to be able to afford a house with a garden; not for this reason, however, it seems right to give up the passion for gardening and plants, or simply to have a bit of nature around us. It is for this reason that we firmly maintain that beautiful corners of the garden and nature can be recreated even without having a garden: flowerpots and plants, a beautiful large window or a balcony are enough. This will ensure the right level of light and air to your creatures, and will guarantee you the hobby that most stimulates you.

The plant pots


Plant pots are the object that absolutely cannot be missing if we want to recreate a corner of the garden on the window or on the balcony of the house. They are an extraordinary invention born a long time ago, when the cultivation in pots in private homes was probably already practiced in medieval cultures. Since then, pots have evolved enormously, managing to become both cheaper and more versatile, as well as more resistant. First of all, let’s talk about the species that can be put in pots; the answer is very simple, because practically it is possible to grow all known plants in pots. It is obvious, but we prefer to underline it, that there are some particularly delicate plants, which hardly adapt to life in a «closed» earth like that of a vase. But everything can be resolved, because with a very large pot the sensation that the plant will have will be that of total freedom as in the earth, even if this sensation will disappear when it grows. Of course this is theoretical, because in small spaces such as windows and balconies having a very large pot for the purposes just seen is difficult and counterproductive. A tip: if you decide to put a plant in pot to grow it at home, do not despair if the plant will die, or in any case you do not take it with the pot or with your choice to grow it in pot; in most cases this is not the reason why a plant dies, but it is a climate, a solar and windy exposure, a humidity that is not suitable and pleasing to the plant. because in small spaces such as windows and balconies having a very large pot for the purposes just seen is difficult and counterproductive.

Materials of the vessels

The materials used to build plant pots have evolved with them over the centuries. Certainly the first vases were made of terracotta; terracotta is a material that is obtained from common clay, which after being formed, is baked in ovens or in the scorching sun to make it reach adequate stiffness and resistance. Bricks are also built with this material, and that’s how it was born. The properties of terracotta are many, and the most important are certainly the completely natural origin (we remember that clay is a natural substance easy to find in the vicinity of many rivers) and also a certain transpiration capacity that helps the contained earth. to keep very well. Fragility is certainly a flaw, due to which terracotta pots often break at the first impact, especially if not very thick. Evolution, making a journey of several centuries, has led to the present day, where almost all household pots are made of plastic; after the mid-twentieth century, there has been a huge improvement in plastic manufacturing techniques. Therefore today it is a very cheap material to produce, fast and simple (if it is not a question of articulated shapes, which it is still possible to realize); to this is associated a great resistance to weight, while for impacts everything depends on the chosen plastic and on the weak point involved in the impact. after the mid-twentieth century, there has been a huge improvement in plastic manufacturing techniques.

Plant pots: The style of the pot

The plant pot can also become a refined piece of furniture; in fact the bright and natural colors of many plants, together with a vase that combines functionality and style, can give an extremely interesting result for many applications, both in the interior of a house and outside, where they can show themselves in all their beauty from the top of the balconies or on the sides of a path or a small street. Not surprisingly, in many home improvement stores we can find both the «more useful than beautiful» vase models, and those vases that have a purely stylistic function, and for this reason they are built in materials such as worked glass, marble , aluminum, copper and many others, from the most to the less usual and common. It is always necessary to verify how much the plant will then be able to adapt to the particular arrangement,
