Searching for the perfect planter for your home or office can be difficult. With such a wide variety of options, choosing the right planter can be very nerve racking. To make it easier for you, we've outlined some important pieces of information to look for in a planter.
Plants need adequate space for optimal growth if you want them healthy and strong. Because of this, it is important that the planter you get can hold enough soil and support your plants growth until its fully matured. However, the size of a planter can determine the type of plant you're looking to grow in it. When selecting a planter, make sure it is at least half the size of your plant.
When selecting your planter, make sure it has the right drainage. This is extremely important in preventing against logging. Well-drained soils are rich and needed for plant and root rowth. If you want to make sure of this, consider drainage holes.
You need to consider the amount of space and how much your planter can weigh. This is also very important to where your planter is going to be sitting. If your garden sits on a balcony, it would be advisable that you go for lighter planters. All in all, lightweight planters are mostly recommended/preferable for balcony or deck gardens.
