Blue plant pots are ideal for container gardening and are also an ideal container for growing herbs, flowers or vegetables. The name comes from the natural shades of the blue veins that run through the plant’s leaves and stems. It is a beautiful plant that can provide a dramatic contrast to almost any type of container, whether its top surface is smooth or textured like marble or granite. If you use this wonderful herb in your home or office pot, you can also create a stunning focal point for your living space!
If you’re new to container gardening and are looking to learn how to look after your plants and keep them healthy then container gardening can be a rewarding and very relaxing experience. There are many different types of containers available including redwood, cedar, terracotta, glass and clay. Clay is very popular as it is weather resistant and durable, however it can crack if a strong wind blows. Glass is ideal if you want a very classy design as it will reflect light and stand out against any colour scheme.
One way to integrate your blue plant pot into your container garden is to use it as a top base for your container potting bench. If you have ever tried to pot in this way you know it is not easy without splashing a bucket of water on the table and getting a nosey feeling to try to see behind the pots! This is where having a pot with a window into the bottom of the pot helps. You can still use a spoon to poke a few holes and let the air out but you will have to splash less. Opening the pot and sticking the bench into the water gives you a great vantage point and if you don’t get a whiff of smoke from the pot it makes it easier to work at.
When you put in the container garden using a potting bench top, make sure that your bench matches the texture and shade of your pot. It has to blend in with your container, but not enough to look like it is competing with your container. Pots with a blue, white or black color are easiest to blend in with. You can even do a test run by placing a drop of paint in one of the pots and seeing what that would look like. You may be surprised!
When you choose the potting bench to use for your container garden, try not to choose too high or low. The height should be around three to four inches off the floor. Ideally you want it to be about six to eight inches off the ground. As you work on the project it is important to remember that plants grow best when watered directly by hand. You should keep the container level and the soil firm so add a little water if needed.
If you live in an area where it snows, then you might want to consider a raised bed planter or pot. These types of pots are very popular and look very nice in the home. Just make sure you have enough of a drop ceiling to support your plant if it gets that high. Another alternative is to use a decorative planter that has a built-in base. Just be sure it has enough of a drop ceiling to support your plant when it gets that high.
A wonderful benefit to raising your plants in a container garden is that you don’t have to prune your plants like you would if they were grown in a traditional garden. Pruning your blue plant pots will help them grow up healthy and strong. You won’t have to pull the plants away from the main stalk when you do this type of trimming. In fact, when you get to that point, it can actually be very enjoyable and you won’t have to pull the plant out of the pot because it is just too difficult.
Of course there is always the concern about washing out the potting bench that you are using. If the potting bench that you are using is made from plastic, it can become very hot to wash and sanitize. So look for a potting bench made of other materials and don’t wash the potting bench until you absolutely have to. It is better to keep your container gardening simple like this than to complicate things and make your efforts unsuccessful.
