This property allows you to place in any part of the apartment, without fear of the appearance of puddles after watering plants. It can be purchased at a store or made independently of obsolete items, decorated with molding, drawing or eggshell. We create a composition of bright containers, hiding inside the old clay or plastic pots with a touch of salt.

    Interesting ideas for your design

    Choosing a decorative pots:

    • classical severity - we place pots with plants in containers in pastel colors, drawing attention to flowers, and not to pots;
    • monochromatic containers allow you to create a composition in one palette - we arrange a number of pots of the same size in one color in order to avoid the extravaganza of colors;
    • we make original crafts from cans of coffee, tea or cookies. You can use old cans in your work, although modern containers can be put into action. They grow well succulents, not demanding for irrigation and frequent transplants. In an empty can you can grow any unpretentious plant, only at the bottom we make holes for drainage;

    With the help of pots we hide ugly pots, which allows us to make composite groups of plants, to cover empty areas in the garden.

    By type of subdivide:

    • Floor planters. Here we place large potted plants, dwarf shrubs and trees. Capacities have large volumes, it is difficult to rearrange them if you want to create a composition. Suitable for myrtle, orange, ficus, palm trees.
    • Suspended pots. We carry out vertical landscaping of the site. We plant not only climbing annuals, but also perennials. In the apartment we fasten on the cornice or ceiling beams, on the street we hang on the verandah and the gazebo, we put on poles. They are suitable for creating mobile flower gardens, it is easy to move the flowering plants to another part of the garden, replacing them with others.
    • Wall pots. Attach directly to the wall or fence. Indoors we decorate the walls of the corridor or hang them in the kitchen. We plant ornamental deciduous plants, the care of which is not burdensome, they are undemanding to lighting conditions.
    • Table pots. We expose potted plants on windowsills and tables. We can transfer from one room to another to provide a comfortable environment.

    Floor tanks look massive, they plant large plants. According to the rules, they must exceed the diameter of the flowerpot, and the intervals must be filled with expanded clay or pebbles to ensure the vital activity of the plants. Backfilling not only performs a decorative function, but also absorbs the remaining liquid. Flowerpots most often wooden or metal.

    The easiest way is to make containers that will stand on the floor or windowsill. Care should be taken to ensure their stability so that the construction with plants does not fall. Flowerpots are made from old holey dishes, containers, cans, shabby drawers and linen cabinets.

    Cheer up with flowers

    For decoration are needed:

    • branches;
    • pebbles;
    • cones;
    • dried flowers;
    • mosaic.

    Outdoor flower pots

    We make floor structures:

    • useful old bucket without a handle, wrapped with burlap or bark;
    • Beautiful plastic pots are made of plastic pipe scraps, and cement will also be needed to fix seashells, ceramics, or mosaic pieces. It is necessary to apply cement to the pipe, and push in the mosaic pieces, and after drying, attach the bottom;
    • we knock down a box from the stains treated with stain; we line the bottom with moss. You can draw a picture from the outside or apply a pattern using the burning method.

    Hanging pots with plants decorate the apartment, balcony, loggia. Suitable for decorating a country site. The compositions are used in a romantic, rustic and eco-style. Depending on the material used for decoration of flowerpots, we decide what style we want to display.

    Suspended compositions for decoration

    If at home we place containers at eye level for ease of watering, then at the dacha we use any fence, hang pots with plants on branches of bushes or trees. Observe the condition - ease of construction.

    All suspended containers are selected from plastic and thin metal, decorated with lace trim, decoupage or colorize. You can make beautiful envelopes out of burlap, sheathe ribbons and lace. Hang on a string, rope or chain. Any outdoor pots with ease turns into a hanging, if you braid threads for hanging on the hooks.

    Crochet hanging pots

    Discover the ideas:

    • measure the volume of the pot, proceed to knitting or crochet. The product should be slightly wider than the pot so that it fits well there. We tie a wide loop at the back so that the structure is securely suspended to the mount;
    • We use satin ribbons of one or several colors. The principle of weaving is simple - we interconnect the ribbons in the middle in the form of a frame. In the middle we put the pot, in size at the edge we knit a ribbon for the connection. Now we bind the ribbons between each other along the walls of the pot;
    • choose thin ropes for weaving. If you need to braid a small bowl with a dwarf plant, you can not use coarse threads. You can braid the pot by analogy with weaving ribbons, or weave a complex pattern.

    The design is securely fastened

    Cachepot on the wall

    In small apartments we embody the idea - we attach pots with plants to the walls. If all the windowsills and the loggia are already taken, then proceed to the realization of the idea. Wall containers are almost the same as outboard or outdoor. On the side of the pot there is a hook with which it is attached to the wall.

    At a country site we attach flower boxes to low and high fences. It is troublesome to build pots with plants directly into the openings of the fence, additional material is required, you also need to calculate the load on the fence.

    Use old items to decorate the area:

    • a pot, a dish or a pot of ceramics will be used. To hang we wind the object with wire or drill a hole for attachment to the wall from the side;
    • kettles and cups from the old service. Fix it on the wall with wire or hang it by the handles on the hooks;
    • boots, shoes or galoshes. We nailed to a wooden fence or tied with laces.

    Materials for pots

    Various materials are useful for creating pots under flower pots:

    • Ceramics. Beautiful vases, decorated with glaze, floral and floral patterns. With their help, create a rustic style in the interior. If the ceramic pots of flower growers are not widespread because of the glaze, which does not allow the root system of plants to develop, then the pot will help out in this situation. We choose - from semicircular containers for a garden with succulents to large floor vases for dracaenas or a Chinese rose. By cons include the fragility of the material and weight.
    • Tree. All wooden parts are treated from decay to ensure the durability of the container. In them we plant bright annuals: marigolds, verbena. It is possible to decorate a garden, as compact boxes, and to build a design from 5-7 flowerpots placed in long pots.
    • Glass. Transparent containers are suitable for indoor flowering plants that need to control the water level.
    • Metal. Products fit any style - from country to high-tech. Make one-and multilevel designs.

    Wooden tanks can be easily constructed from the remnants of the rails after repair. Useful boards, bars, slats, and even branches.

    We use cheap materials to create pots for the garden:

    • We knock together several laths like a fence or a lattice, combine them in the form of a long box. Inside the lining of the sacking, we expose the containers with red and pink geraniums.
    • The middle of the long log should be hollowed out, and the sides should be reinforced with smaller logs for stability. Stir plates with violets or petunias.
    • Cut the twigs of the same length, tie them together with a rope, making knots after each added branch. It should be a canvas of twigs, connected by two strips of rope. We join the canvas into a circle, and as the bottom we nail several branches with nails. Such fastening will not allow to tilt and fall out to a pot. We put a flowerpot with a flower inside, we additionally tie a construction with a rope.

    We improve a site, arranging mobile flower beds:

    1. At the entrance to the territory. Choose two tall pots, plant the same dwarf trees. We put the containers on high stands so that the potted plants create an entrance zone. The composition can be placed in front of the house or on both sides of the fence.
    2. A beautiful plant planted in a decorative flowerpots, placed in the center of the flower bed as a tapeworm. We also set up containers near benches, turns of garden paths, on steps leading to a house.
    3. Unsightly places on the site closed with large vases with plants, shifting the emphasis on flowers.
    4. Near an artificial reservoir we place pots with moisture-loving plants - dwarf irises and ferns.
    5. An interesting idea is to create a streamlet with the help of containers with blue flowers. We pour stones in the shape of the future channel, and at the source we mix an old can, from which ampelous lobelia grow.
    6. We make a mobile flower garden - we put several planters in a row with flowering plants, if necessary we transfer:

    Very comfortable mobile flowers

    • spring flowering from early-flowering bulbous plants planted in wicker baskets, as we wither, we transfer into the shade, replacing with other plants;
    • in the summer we decorate the land in a rustic style - we set up wooden boxes with annual plants of the same species;
    • before frost, ampelous fuchsias bloom with petunia and verbena, planted in hanging containers;
    • in the fall, we put in a prominent place in front of the porch pots with chrysanthemums that were preparing to bloom in summer.
    1. We decorate brick and wooden fences. If the barriers look gray and uncomfortable, then with the help of high containers with one type of perennial plants we will add bright colors to the site.
    2. Suspended pots stir not only on the balcony, cornice, wall, but also hang on the branches of trees.

    Plants in hanging tanks need to be watered more often, because due to the location under direct sunlight, the soil dries quickly.

    Hanging flowers need to be watered more often.

    If there is a pond at the dacha, we make a floating composition. We use light containers with potted plants, which are placed in pots in the form of a boat. The plant will sway on the water surface, will need less watering.

    For heavy pots at the bottom of a shallow pond, we fix the support, on which we put a stable cache-pot. In the tank, you will feel yourself freely in the pot with tsiperus, which needs frequent watering and spraying. Return to the menu

    Flowers in the country

    • In the country with the help of pots with plants zoning plot. The containers placed along the tracks are used as a border, replacing the landing boxwood, in need of constant pruning. We create containers of incredible shape with the help of cut plastic bottles or tires, pour concrete into the molds in order to repeat the bends of the tracks.
    • We form borders using a number of short plants in the same color and texture of the tanks. Another option is to arrange pots of different height along the walkway, where you can plant several species of flowering annuals. You can put the containers in one row, but can be placed in groups. Cachepo placed on supports to create a multi-level flower garden.
    • Select a place for a raised flowerbed - we plant one large figured flower-pots, painted with bright patterns. Here we put several containers with potted plants to get the composition.
    • We embody the idea of ​​the Mediterranean style - we create an alley along the paths, resembling the planting of young cypress trees. Expose tub plants - Portuguese laurel cherry, privet, laurel, boxwood. In order to create the impression that cultures grow from the ground, we dig deep tanks into the dug holes, where we place tubs for the season. Before frosts, we extract the plant with a container, and in the spring we return it to its place.
    • Getting to the design of the arbor. We hang pots with plants in the openings, put them around on the ground, put them on poles. Planted curly annuals to get a canopy of green mass. It does not always work near the gazebo to plant climbing roses or clematis because of the paving. The output will be suspended structures and mobile flower beds.
