By decorating your surroundings 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 proof of this.
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 own 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. With planters & plant pots, a new light-heartedness is thus introduced on the terrace, balcony or windowsill in addition to a geometrically precise design language - and thus ensures a good piece of pot gardener's luck!
From XXL to XXS: The seven graded sizes of the round model make it particularly easy for the committed pot gardener to train his "green thumb" by regularly repotting - and to remain true to his style. Because once the plant has grown out of one round, it goes straight into the next larger one! Depending on the type of plant, repotting is recommended every 2 to 3 years, whereby the diameter of the container should be at least 2 to 4 cm larger. For larger plants, the planter should be up to 10 cm larger.
