If you have just bought yourself a beautiful 30cm high pot then you will want to put it into a suitable container so that it can be used as either a patio pot or a pot for container gardening. There are many things that you need to think about when you are making the decision about what type of pot you want to buy. You can either go for something very pretty and small, or choose a pot that will give your herbs and vegetables the space and light that they need. There are also different ways in which you can use your new pot.
One of the first things that you will need to think about is how you are going to put your pot on to the table. If your choice of potting bench is one that does not sit flush against the table then you will have to choose another way of putting your pot onto the table. This can be extremely frustrating as it looks as if the pot cannot fit into the hole but it actually will. It may take you a few attempts to get the pot into the correct position before you finally discover the best way to do so.
Another thing that you have to consider when choosing containers for container gardening is how you are going to hide the wiring from view. Wires can be quite an eyesore especially if you have a large area that you are gardening in. The best way of hiding wires is by using a pot that has a solid base. A pot that stands on its side will conceal the wires as the base of the pot is able to provide an extra base for the pot on top of which the wire can then be hidden.
The final factor to consider when choosing potting benches for your container garden is how the plant will be placed into the pot. If you have chosen a pot that has a tapered hole in the bottom then the plant will need to be inserted upside down into the pot. The disadvantage of using a tapered pot is that the plant will be slightly damaged by being inserted at an angle. In this situation it is more convenient to choose a pot with a flat bottom or a rectangular pot that will allow for the plant to be easily inserted at an angle.
If you have chosen a pot that has a round or oval hole in the bottom then the plant will be much easier to spread across the pot and therefore you will not have to worry about using a potting bench to support the plant. This can also make it easier to move the pot around when you want to repot the plant. One great advantage of using potting benches is that they also make it easier to see what you are doing with your plants.
One other consideration when using potting benches is the ease with which the potting bench can be cleaned. To wash a potting bench, you will need to either dampen the pot with water or bring it to the boil using a steamer. When cleaning the potting bench, you should take particular care that the pot that is on the potting bench is not touching any other pots or surfaces. Once the pot is washed, it is time to move on to the drainage holes on the bottom of the pot.
It may seem that there is nothing to worry about when it comes to potting your plants in pots on potting benches but just like anything else you need to maintain your plants health in order to keep them alive. If you do not have a potting bench indoors then it is extremely important that you get one as they are very useful. If you have decided to use a potting bench indoors then make sure that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions as they will help you know exactly how to care for your plant.
It is also important to remember that not all pots will fit onto your 30cm plant pot. Always measure the dimensions of the pot that you intend to use before buying a pot. You may be able to find pots in your garden store that will fit on to your potting bench but always remember that you need to measure the dimensions first. If you are unsure then it is best practice to write down the measurements of the pot you plan to buy before you go shopping. There is nothing worse than ordering a 30cm pot and realising that it does not fit into the hole in the potting bench.
