If you are a first time gardener then you may be under the impression that 40 litre pots are the biggest pots you can get your hands on. This is far from being true as there are many different sizes of pots that you can use for container gardening. The size of container that you choose is entirely up to you and what you are trying to achieve. You should have a good idea of how much space you have available to work with before you start looking at the different pots. If you only have a small garden space then a smaller pot will obviously be the best choice for you as you will be able to utilise it more effectively.
If you are going for a container garden in a large room or courtyard, you may need to think about a different style of pot. A square or rectangular pot will be suitable for most areas. They will give you a lot more leeway and if you are planning on flowering plants for your container garden then you should think about buying one that will be able to handle this. Your plants will need room to breathe and grow so do not select a pot that is too small. If you are in doubt then ask the seller to measure the space you have available.
If you are going for a more classic look then you can go for the 40 litre round pots. These pots look great and if you buy one that is made from good quality material then it will last for years to come. They do not look as bulky as some of the square or rectangular ones but if that is what you are going for then it is likely to be the best option. Choose a pot that has a thick base as this will stop any accidents from happening.
Do not let the color of your container garden affect your choice of pot. Think about whether you would like to theme your container garden around a specific color or theme. If you are not set on a specific color scheme then consider some of the most popular themes around – summer, spring, fall or winter. For container gardens that are specifically for summer then opt for a bright, cheerful color such as yellow, orange or red. If you are looking to theme your container garden around the season that you are in then choose plants that grow quickly and show off their colors – this includes peas, pumpkins, squash, melons, carrots and daisies.
There are lots of different potting benches available and you can easily find one to suit your needs. If you want to choose pots that sit directly on the ground then you will need to choose a potting bench that is either elevated, on legs or stands on its own legs. Many people choose to use these specially designed plant pots when they are planning to grow plants in pots rather than on the ground floor of their house. A raised planting area is much easier to maintain and you won’t risk knocking your furniture over when you are trying to plant something really big and tall.
You may also have the option of using plant pots on a patio table. These are great for areas where you would like to be able to sit and relax outdoors without worrying about getting the temperature off or getting the sunburns. It is important that you know the right measurements and proportions of the pots you are buying and you need to be aware of the weight that they should be placed on, as well as the depth of the pot as this is very important.
Most gardeners will opt for pots that are taller and therefore sit on the ground a little further back. This helps to protect the roots of the plants from damage when it is raining or snowing outside. Most gardeners also opt for larger pots as they are easier to clean than the smaller ones. However, keep in mind that the bigger pots are generally heavier so you need to make sure that the potting bench you are going to buy is sturdy enough to carry the weight.
Once you have made your choice about the type of pots you are going to purchase you will need to consider exactly how you are going to be using them. If you are planning on putting plants directly into the pot then you need to look at the type of potting bench that you are going to buy. If you are going to use these pots on a potting bench that already exists then you need to make sure that there is plenty of support included with it for the 40 litre pots. In order to ensure that the potting bench that you buy will fit correctly in the pot, you need to add some extra height so that the entire bench is the same height as the pot itself.
