Vases and pot plants
Vases and planters are a simple and effective way to beautify the balcony of the house or garden thanks to the great variety of tree species that can grow and flourish within these versatile containers perfect not only for transport and handling but also for allow the creation of green corners within the home environment. In nature there is a great variety of different species; from resistant cacti to delicate roses, passing through aromatic varieties such as rosemary, mint, sage, parsley and tomato, able not only to provide a valuable gastronomic contribution and to save time and money but to create a plant environment luxuriant even in a very small space thanks to the many shapes, colors and fragrances available. Woody, bushy, succulent, herbs, ornamental, climbing and many others are in fact the plant species that can be grown in pots. Cultivation of this type allows greater protection from atmospheric agents, especially of non-native species. Vases and planters are certainly versatile tools for exposing nursery plants to the public as well as a refined piece of furniture or an original piece of modern art design in the case of indoor crops.
Care and protection from the cold
Potted plants, if placed outdoors, should be treated regularly and during the winter months should be protected not only from cold and storms but also from the sun. Only an accurate protection will guarantee the perfect reinvigoration during the hottest months, so it will be always advisable to check if after heavy rains or a thunderstorm some vase has been turned upside down or damaged in order to allow the infiltration of humidity under the roots. Woody plants and evergreens such as boxwood should be watered regularly even in the winter months to prevent them from drying out due to frost. During the cold months the temperature changes caused by exposure to sunlight during the day and by night frosts prevent the roots from absorbing water from the frozen soil with the consequence that their branches could dry out. In this case, protecting them from daylight is important not only for evergreens but also for roses and fruit trees. Better then place them under a roof or protect them with wooden mats that can keep them in the shade during the day, thus avoiding that the water accumulated on the leaves evaporates quickly. Placed in the garden or on the balcony, the plants must always be protected from the snow which, accumulating on the branches, would risk breaking them due to the excessive weight they would be forced to bear. If we are talking about indoor specimens, the home thermometer will provide a valuable aid to realize the ideal conditions for the survival of the different types of plants. Depending on the species or the geographical area, the indoor pot plants can be transferred outdoors in the spring months gradually starting to bring them out only during the day and placing them first in the shade so as to acclimatize them perfectly. Better not to fertilize or fertilize the soil during the winter; most plants are in a state of vegetative rest during the cold months. Nourishment should generally be administered from the month of February, when the vegetative restart begins and its doses as well as the quantity of water, should be gradually increased throughout the summer period.
Ornamental potted plants
Among the many varieties of pante that it is possible to cultivate in pots there are some that in our area are more successful as roses, a true wonder of sight and smell. Rose or bushy roses should always be planted in individual planters and in generally tall pots. They are extremely delicate plants to which it is appropriate to dedicate special care. They must therefore be fertilized for a prolonged cession starting from the first days of spring and watered regularly throughout the year, withered leaves and petals must be regularly removed while in the summer months it is appropriate to protect them with plant screens such as bamboo or clematis or with simple mats in wood. Among the ornamental plants most present on the balcony of the house it is appropriate to mention the Geranium, the Hydrangea, the Cardinal Flower and the clematis able to offer visual effects of considerable impact both planted in individual pots and inside large planters. These types of plants produce colorful and fragrant flowers throughout the summer and can be combined as a fill or finish together with plants such as Alchemilla and maritime lobularia.
Pot plants: Aromatic potted plants
Aromatic plants such as basil, thyme, chives, tomatoes, rosemary, etc. are also increasingly common on balconies and terraces. they can be grown in pots without any particular problems. Pay attention to the watering that must always be balanced and to the exposure to the prolonged sun in the summer months especially for the tomato that from July produces already perfectly ripe fruit. Aromatic and fruit plants should normally be planted in large pots, although not necessarily tall and protected from the cold during the winter, continuing, if possible, cultivation indoors.
