As the old saying goes, “planting seeds is just a matter of letting nature take its course.” Those who know how to grow flowers, vegetables, herbs and other home garden plants have discovered creative ways to use plant pots as a garden plot. Plants like roses are highly desired because they make beautiful indoor settings. The flowering plant can be planted in the pot that already has been prepared for it, on a substrate like a substrate tray or a planting mat that has been made for it.
To help beautify the finished product, you can add soil in the pot or simply plant in the ground and add a few small leaves. It’s important to consider what kind of growth you want before planting your flower and vegetable or herb plants. You can be creative and think of things that you would never normally do with pots. Let’s look at some creative ways to use plant pots as a garden plot.
One way to add a sense of uniqueness to a space is to carve a beautiful garden design on top of the pot. The pot will add another focal point to your garden, which adds interest to the whole area. Other times, gardeners try to mimic the look of pottery and decorate their gardens by using certain pots as well. Plant pots and their contents can be used as containers for dried herbs and some flowers.
Once you’ve made the choice to make use of the pot, now you need to figure out where to put it. The best place for a pot to be planted is near the trunk of a tree. But not all trees and shrubs will grow into the pots so be careful where you plant. It’s also smart to put the pot on the side of a house so it doesn’t block the view of your home. Once your pot gets a little dirt, just add compost and your garden will be one plant pot away from being an established garden plot.
How to Use Pots As A Garden Plot
Another creative ways to use plant pots as a garden plot involves adding a border around the container. For some ideas, plant a small shrub in the center of the container, add a border of weeds to create an illusion of growth in the pot and build your border up using small rocks and other materials. Try planting small fruits like apples, pears, peaches, strawberries and apples in the pot, and water them every week. Be sure to water them in between watering your flower or vegetable garden.
Your garden is only as good as the people who care for it. For this reason, it’s important to find people that share your passion for gardening. By working together, you’ll be sure to find new ways to use plant pots and your garden to beautify your surroundings. Work with your family and neighbors to get the most out of your plant pots. When you plan to get a large plant, bring it to the neighborhood farmers’ market. You can even teach the person who has the biggest plant how to use potting soil so he or she can be a part of your project.
If you have children, give them the opportunity to learn to garden and share their own home garden with their friends. Start small with plants like tomatoes and be sure to continue to grow with the others. Let’s use our creativity and make our garden a more pleasant place for us and those we care about.
