Selection of a flower pot

Pots are designed for direct planting of flowers. They should be practical and convenient for the development of the root system, and also have one or more holes on the bottom. This important detail will not allow the water to stagnate, which will exclude the possibility of root rot, the proliferation of pathogenic bacteria and fungi. The hole at the bottom of the pot allows the roots to “breathe” and absorb moisture from the pallet during the so-called “bottom watering”.

Correctly determine the size of the pot. Evaluate the plant visually. Larger flowerpots are suitable for adult plants with spreading large leaves. Little or medium-sized pots are perfect for miniature or small flowers. An approximate formula that will help you in choosing: the height of the pot should be equal to 1/3 of the height of the plant.

The volume of the purchased container for a plant that needs to be transplanted should be focused on the volume of the root system of the plant. If the root occupies the entire space of the pot or even sprouts into drainage holes, choose a new pot two to three centimetres larger in diameter.

So, when you purchase flower garden pots, select them properly. Thus you can provide the healthy growth of your plant. And let the design of the flowerpot please the eye and bring aesthetic pleasure.
