Tips on choosing the best garden planter for your green thumb: by Glenn Mast
- A garden planter should have plenty of space for a certain quantity of soil and must permit enough growth of roots but not too huge though.
- Each garden planter should contain drainage holes. You should ensure that the planter comes with bottom holes or it is crafted with materials which allow you to drill drainage holes in it. (proper drainage is a must)
- Make sure that the soil can breathe inside the planter. The roots of the plant require water for oxygen requirement, as well as nutrients.
- Metal, wood, and concrete garden planters are absolutely great for winter seasons and regions. Terracotta or clay planters have both splitting and freezing vulnerability.
- Your garden planters group or your planter location must then be considered. There should be adequate support in your patio or balcony for the planter weight or planter group.
- Be stylish by thinking out the amount of space for your planter location and the look you would want to achieve. Cool colors like light yellow creates a much larger space look. Intense shades, on the other hand, create a tinier space look.
When it comes to taking care of your planters, maintaining your planters will eventually provide you with much more benefits. Of course, you would want to grow healthier plants. This would be possible if you ensure the garden planter is free from pests and diseases. You should as well provide enough drainage.
