Garden Planters and Pots – Selection tips

There is nothing more disappointing when a large and expensive planter fails miserably to live up to expectations? Take for example, the popular selling and relatively expensive fibre clay planters. Yes they resemble and remind one of those classic stone planters but thats where any other potentail shared attributes with the classic originals ends. Unlike the originals which were solid and dense, the modern fibre clay lookalikes are lightwieght and hardly robust. Made from a layered matted clay and as the photos clearly illustrate, planters which were are all only approximately five years old, showed many signs of significant deterioration and degradation including chips, splits, cracks and bulging.

The good news is that this great disappointment can be easily avoided when one is more careful in the selection of planters, pots etc. Ideally one expects planters and pots to be at least resilient and capable of withstanding the harsh demands of our very varied weather conditions. For example, no fade, ie sunlight/UV proof, frost proof, chip proof and crack proof. Even better, the planter should be stable and robust permitting the planting of a wide range of plants ranging from ornamental flowers and shrubs, to more vigorous and demanding plants like trees or bamboos.
