If you are just beginning with container gardening then you will want to consider a selection of various 2 litre plant pots. There are many different varieties of pots available for this type of gardening. Some varieties are designed specifically for smaller plants such as herbs or even for container plants and many varieties are specially made for certain plants such as roses or vegetables. So before purchasing any particular type of pot for container gardening you should take a little time and find out a little about the various types of pots. Once you know about the various kinds of pots then you can make your final decision.
Moulded Plastic Plant Pots: Made from: Polypropylene. All Moulded Plant Pots comes with drainage holes. Pot Size (Height): varies from four to ten cups. Pot Size (Depth): varies from four to ten cups.
Teflon coated pot tops: Teflon is a chemical resistant coating that is applied to most pot surfaces to protect them from corrosion and rust. It can be found in many garden plastic plant pots and is not toxic when it is applied to the surface but when it comes into contact with human skin it is toxic and has an unpleasant taste. This is why Teflon coated pots are also used in the manufacture of cups and plates used in the manufacture of plastic containers. These pots will last longer and resist disease much better than pots without the coating. The price of the Teflon coated pots can be up to three times the price of untreated pots.
Metal Plant pots: Metal pot dimensions are very popular because they are very strong and they don’t crack easily. They come in a wide range of different sizes and thicknesses to suit your needs. These pots are made in a wide range of colours and finishes to add to their attractiveness. The pots themselves will have a finished or unfinished look depending upon the overall finish of the pot.
You should first measure the size of the container you want to buy before going to your local garden centre to find the best possible 2-litre pots. Make sure that the measurements are correct so that you know exactly what you need to buy and then go shopping. When you visit the garden centre, take note of the two litre plant pots that they are selling. Make a note of the measurements of the pots. The best way to do this is to take your digital multimeter with you and check the measurements of the pots.
The other things to consider are the colour of the pot and the design of the flower pots. If you take into account the date first listed on the pot then you should find it easier to choose the best possible 2 litre plant pots that are available. For the most part, the better quality pots will be more expensive, however if you compare the price per unit then you can easily work out a saving. Some examples of 2-litre pots that were found online in a comparison site include; a golden earth tone with deep blue top, a clear glass with black and white stripes, a clear glass with grey and blue stripes and a clear acrylic with dark blue top and white and green stripes.
A golden earth tone pot is perfect for a sunny garden centre as these types of plant pots can be placed right next to awnings. They are usually inexpensive and the best ones can easily withstand high temperatures. Another good idea is to buy a pot that has a date first listed on the inside of it. This means that you will be able to recognise the pot when buying the plant pots for your home.
As mentioned previously, a date first listed on the inside of the pot means that you can identify the pot before you purchase it. It is worth remembering that some potters mark pots off when they have left them to dry. If this is the case, then the date may not be current and you may end up having to purchase a new pot. Check the moisture level of the plant pots that you plan to purchase and this will help you identify a new pot that will fit in perfectly.
