You can get a variety of beautiful designs, types, and sizes in the wide varieties of Kmart pots and planters. Many of these are made of iron, but others are available in other materials such as cast iron, stainless steel, aluminum and acrylic.
Kmart is an abbreviation for the metric kiteboard iron cast planters. These can be used for indoor plant pots and are often used in flower, herb, and tree vegetable gardens. They are sometimes referred to as garden planters. An aluminum plant pot or one made from stainless steel is also sometimes referred to as an iron planter. This type of iron gardening planter can handle the most delicate plants.
A variety of styles and sizes are available in a Kmart pot planter. Some of these planters have a tapered design and are excellent for container gardening. They have a lip on one side to keep the soil from draining away from the roots. The other style of this type of garden potting bench has a flat lip along one side and a sloped lip on the other. This makes it very useful for drainage, particularly if you have a large garden and do a lot of watering.
Size and shape play an important part in determining which of the many models of this product you should buy. This is probably the biggest consideration. There are rectangular and square planters, circular planters, oval planters, as well as the much larger, diamond-shaped, spherical planters. It might seem like there’s a wide variety, but all of them come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Which of these will be the best for your particular gardening need is really going to be dependent upon how much space you have and what you’re trying to accomplish.
In general, the most popular size for a planter is the rectangular shape. There are a few reasons for this, including being the most common and easiest to assemble. Rectangular planters can either come with a lip over one side or have one without a lip. The only drawback to these rectangular shaped pots is that they may not fit snugly on plant stands or other arrangements if there isn’t a lip over one end.
If you have a small amount of space but want a planter that is very eye catching, you might want to consider choosing a square or round shaped container. Square and round planters are typically smaller and will fit nicely on flower stand or other arrangements. There are even some that can be used in conjunction with other types of container gardening like those using plant pots. A great example of this is using a rectangular piece of clay flower pot and placing it on a plant stand.
There are two different varieties of planters that are available. The first one is the standard cube planter. These usually measure about two feet by two feet and come in either black or white… the only color option that we could find. These are definitely smaller than the other option that is available… the largest being about an inch by three inches. These are ideal if you only want a handful of plants to be able to display, but still want something pretty to look at because of the dimensions… the downside to these smaller sized planters is that they aren’t very portable and can get fairly tiring carrying them around in your purse.
If you want the smallest of containers and planters, then the square or circular pot is the best one for you. They are generally between one and two feet across and can sometimes hold up to a dozen or so small plant flowers. You can use these in conjunction with your flower pots or other plants to create a very eye catching display. For something a little more portable though, you might want to try the small metal plant hanger that can easily be attached to your key chain… you never know when you might need it!
