Tips For Picking The Perfect Pot

Size Matters

When it comes to pots, it is important to choose a pot that is slightly larger than the current pot. If the pot is smaller than 10”, choose a new one that is 1-2” larger. If your plant is in a pot larger than 10”, choose a new pot that is 2-3” larger. We all need room to grow!

Drainage

At Hunters Garden Centre we will always recommend selecting planters and pots with drainage to give your plant the best chance at thriving outside of the ground. This is especially true if you are new to plants. However it is still possible for plants to thrive in enclosed containers with some love and attention!

Each plant has different watering needs. To reduce the chance of overwatering and root rot, ensure you do not use more than 1/3 of the container’s size in water at once.

Material

Different pots work better in different environments. For example, porous ceramic pots such as terracotta dry more evenly in comparison to other materials such as plastic pots. Cedar and other wood planters will dry even faster than the terracotta pots!

Ceramic planters also are great choices for long-term or larger plants. If the weight of the pot is a concern for you, fibreglass planters will do the trick as they work well for plants larger than 8”.

At the end of the day, your pot preference comes down to your style – get creative with it! You can always ask one of our staff members at Hunters Garden Centre for expert advice too.
