From the plant pots homepage we offer three ways to navigate the site: search, refine by and the category pages. The refine by is great if you are searching for a specific pot and allows one to select multiple categories as to narrow down your search. As such if you are searching for a large plastic plant pot simply tick large under size and plastic under material. The links on the homepage lead you through the category pages, which is very useful if you wish to see our whole range of a particular material for example, such as terracotta pots. Lastly there is search that will bring up products based on their title and description, so it is important not to be to specific but to search for common features e.g. tall or troughs. If you are looking for a specific colour or wish for something completely unique, we both offer custom colour and bespoke planters. Is there any anything I should know about flower pots in general? With planting pots, it is first important to check whether your pot comes with drainage holes. If it does not it may be worthwhile to drill holes in the bottom, depending on what plants you wish to grow and the soil you wish to use. For most plants waterlogged soil will negatively affect growth, and may even cause it to wilt. Plants in containers may also need its soil replaced, or improved with fertiliser, to improve the nutrients of the soil. This can be done on an annual basis, depending on your plant's performance. One advantage of using a pot is that you can create loose aerated soil, which will benefit plant growth. Simply, just do not pack the soil too tight. Is there anything specific I should know about planter pots? Most of our products are composed of composite materials that combine one material with another for superior properties. For example, by combining terracotta and fibreglass to produce fibrecotta, we have produced a product that is strong, frost proof and light. Authentic materials, which are also available, still suffer from a number of weaknesses that are worth looking into. Wood, for example, may need maintenance with varnish and paint as to protect against rot. Certain materials, such as zinc, will react with the compounds in the soil, resulting in the protective layer being eaten away. This can be avoided by the use of an internal pot or a plastic liner. It also important to move your pot carefully, as chips may expose the steel underneath leading to rust. It is important to consider both the material and colour of the container as they affect how warm the soil will be. Black absorbs all the wavelengths of light, which is then converted into heat energy, while white reflects all wavelengths of light. So different colours may lead to early germination/growth, and be able to better support more tropical plants. Certain materials are better at holding and transmitting heat, so it may be worthwhile to see how warm your pot is throughout the year. To gauge a soils’ temperature, one can purchase a soil thermometer.
