By decorating your house and garden with planters, you are following a long tradition. Egyptians, Sumerians and Greeks are considered to be the pioneers of the cultural history of potted plants: Ancient stone portraits of trees and shrubs in vases or plant pots, as well as the legendary traditions of the hanging gardens of Semiramis and the Adonis gardens, are the proof.
Not to forget Japan, where bonsai art made large open-air plants suitable for rooms. In the Middle Ages, exotic plants came to our latitudes as a result of conquests and voyages of discovery and were nurtured and cared for in vessels - in this way the plants could be quickly brought to warmth in winter. Many stately orangeries are still impressive buildings in their style and testify to this early love of potted plants.
These planters are beautiful and robust. They are made of the technically sophisticated composite material Stonefiber - a mixture of polyester resin and ground stone, in which additionally inserted strands of fibreglass achieve an unusually high degree of stability. On the one hand, the pots fascinate with their high-quality mineral look, which develops a natural grey patina after a few months in the black models.
On the other hand, Stonefiber is shock and frost resistant. The pots can, therefore, survive minor falls, the overturning in storms and wintering outdoors usually without damage. In direct comparison to stone or clay pots, they score points because of the lower material thickness with a significantly reduced weight, which makes them easier to handle. In addition to precise geometric shapes, they also bring a new light-heartedness to your terrace, balcony or windowsill - and thus ensure a good piece of pot gardening happiness!
The plastic planters in the classic shape with the reinforced rim are particularly robust against knocks and blows from the outside, but - like any other round flower pot - they can only relieve pressure acting on the walls from the inside to a limited extent due to their statics. We, therefore, recommend that you reduce the weight of the filling by adding polystyrene balls or chips to the plant substrate. In addition, these pots can be equipped with a suitable coaster.
