We are abiding by the UK Government's New November Guidelines with handling COVID-19. We are open for business as usual with a deliveries only service. Please be aware there can be some additional delays of 3-7 working days on top of normal operation times we provide due to the lockdown in place in the UK.
This delay can be down to shortage of staff with our couriers and the high demand of parcels being put into the network as everyone adopts online ordering.
Thank you for your understanding.
The Best Outdoor Planters for Your Spring Garden
Outdoor Planters for Your Spring Garden
As spring begins to arrive, we are getting ready to welcome in the better weather and enjoy the longer hours of sunshine. The arrival of spring also means that we are able to get out in the garden again and participate in a little bit of gardening to restore our outdoor space to its former glory! Spring is one of the best seasons to embrace the outdoors as temperatures begin to climb and our various plants start to emerge.
Here at GetPotted.com we want to help you get the most out of your garden this year. If you’re looking for the best way to improve your spring garden and ensure it looks great, you might want to consider using outdoor planters!
Why use outdoor planters?
Outdoor planters for your garden are one of the most effective ways to give your plants a great start. Not only can they help your plants to grow in their early stages, but they can make your garden look even better with a range of colours and designs alongside the flowers themselves!
Using outdoor planters or containers can have a number of benefits for your garden. They are incredibly versatile, so no matter what outdoor space you have, you can still grow plants. Likewise, they make gardening incredibly accessible to anyone, even those with limited mobility. You may also find that you can grow a bigger variety of plants than in your flowerbeds, and you can bring them inside if the weather suddenly turns.
Which outdoor planters should you choose?
Choosing your outdoor planters is largely down to personal taste, and what will suit your existing garden. With so much choice in our extensive range, you can choose the perfect outdoor planter to go with what you have already created in your outdoor space.
Our collection includes a number of different materials, and each once has its own benefits. For example, clay or terracotta planters can help your plants to be protected from extreme temperatures. The porous nature of clay means that air and water can pass through the walls of the pot easily, which can keep your plants healthy. It can also give a classic look to our garden and will lend itself to almost any type of garden.
Other materials often used in outdoor planters include more modern choices such as fibreglass. Thanks to an improved design over the years, fibreglass has the ability to look like terracotta or stone but has a much better strength. With a high level of durability, fibreglass planters can withstand the elements while also being lightweight.
A more traditional choice for your outdoor planters is wood. Giving an authentic feel to your garden, wooden planters are a more natural choice and look great in a number of outdoor environments. They can also provide insulation for your plant roots, and if made thick enough they can also prevent weather damage.
