Here we share five tips for selecting the perfect pot:

  • Size matters. Be sure to measure up and choose a pot that your plants can grow into. Too small, and your plant may not be able to expand as it should.
  • Drainage is important. Choose a pot with good drainage, especially if it is to stand outside during the wet months. Drainage holes will allow your plants to dry out and not drown. Roots will rot in soggy soil.
  • Position matters. Before investing in good quality pots, be sure to consider the placement of your plants. Plants need a balance of light, water and good soil in order to thrive. Make sure you understand the unique needs of your plant before placement. Does it need direct sunlight or shade? How much water is required?
