Planters for terraces
For plant and garden lovers, who do not have a large space for their beloved friends, it is possible to solve the problem by purchasing planters and containers. Planters are objects that adapt well to any type of house, terrace and balcony. In recent times, these planters are used not only to contain plants and flowers, but also to grow aromatic plants, vegetables and greens. On the market there are different types of planters from plastic to concrete, iron and wood. Plastic planters are the most popular and purchased. They are easy to move because they are very light. They adapt to any type of environment and are very cheap. The only disadvantage is that plastic planters do not allow water and moisture to transpire, often causing root problems and rot, so it is useful to pay more attention to the frequency of watering. Concrete planters today are often found on terraces and balconies. They have been designed to be prepared for water drainage, so as to adapt plants well on balconies and terraces even in apartment buildings. Being a porous material, the cement manages to evaporate the excess of humidity often attributed to the abundance of rains and excessive watering. One of the disadvantages of these planters is that they are very heavy, so once placed in a point on the terrace, it is very difficult to move them, even more so if they are already full of soil. In luxury and refined environments, wrought iron planters were often found for their particular workmanship. Nowadays, these planters are used in a more common way. They are very capacious and have both rectangular and round shape. There are craftsmen capable of making custom-made wrought iron planters, creating unique and particular objects. While the wooden planters are very simple and light for transport. The wood is then breathable and particularly resistant to temperature changes.
In addition to being grown in the garden or in flower beds, plants and flowers can safely be found in planters placed on terraces and balconies. Lily and lily of the valley adapt well to planters. The lily is a plant that grows spontaneously in Asia and America, in regions with a temperate climate. Lilies have different colored flowers and are bulbous plants. Its bulbs should be planted at a depth of 12 cm especially in spring. It is good that the soil is well drained so as to prevent humidity from causing the bulbs to rot. Instead in summer it is necessary to make fertilizers soluble in water. Lily of the valley is a plant that can safely be grown in planters and pots. It has broad leaves and white bell-like flowers. The lily of the valley must be planted in a fertile soil full of clay, sand and organic matter formed by soil of plant debris. Both lily of the valley and lily have been considered medicinal plants.
