Giant terracotta pots are perhaps one of the most unique ways of container gardening. The team has travelled from Switzerland via northern Italy to Tuscany for an art holiday and are now settled in and around a beautifully restored, multi-storey, brick home. Light streams into the living room through the open floor to ceiling windows, sweeping the bare floors or sitting quietly in giant terracotta pots, which have been arranged like a gallery in the garden. Giant terracotta pots act as both a giant canvas and holder for plant seeds. Once you’ve decided what container gardening you want to try, you can call up the team to discuss which would suit your garden best.
Tuscany is known for lush, exotic citrus trees and it is believed that the region was a major source for oranges because of the rich soil. As in the rest of the world, ancient societies provided their workers with raw materials that they could use locally, meaning that citrus trees were often grown in homes rather than in gardens. When you look at modern citrus trees you might be put off by the large size, but the fruit is worth the effort. In containers citrus trees can reach very large proportions. You can grow large numbers in small, plastic or even narrow openings, which allows you to see the fruit, peel it and eat it. Growing large numbers of lemons and tangerines is not the only way to enjoy these tasty citrus fruits however; other fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, pumpkins, aubergines and basil are also suitable for container gardening in small containers.
Other vegetable plants can be planted in regular terracotta pots, including lettuce and cabbage. These plants benefit from being able to be moved around so they do not become too woody or soil-toxic. If you have a large garden then you could use several smaller containers to grow whatever vegetables you choose. Giant terracotta containers allow you to plant an entire garden in one location. If you are growing herbs then you can place your herbs in potting soil and place them in individual pots, which makes it easy to remove the weeds and leaves.
There are several advantages to planting citrus in private gardens. Private gardens have more room to plant as well as the advantage of keeping insects and other pests out. Citrus is more difficult to get rid of in private gardens, so they tend to last much longer. Many insects prefer citrus to many other kinds of weeds, so if you are diligent in your citrus planting you should have little problem with insects. Another advantage is that you will not have to worry about replacing dead flowers, branches or other foliage because it is easier to recycle citrus in this way.
You can easily recycle citrus in your home by making small holes in the ground underneath your terracotta pots and putting in your citrus potted plants. It is very important to protect your potted citrus plants from insects as they will fly around and try to eat the citrus. You can also move your citrus tree trays outdoors as the insects will eventually eat them. The key is to make sure that you water the soil regularly enough so that it develops healthy roots. You will also want to make sure that the soil has good drainage so your citrus trees do not dry out. Private gardens may not have the sun exposure that is needed for growing citrus so you might need to purchase artificial lighting to keep your citrus trees well cared for in your home.
Giant terracotta is an ideal material to use for flower pots because you can be creative and have an abundant amount of flowers, colors and textures to create beautiful garden decor.

When you create an organic garden you can add a variety of natural stones, pebbles and rocks.
You can find a variety of styles of Giant terracotta plant pots so you can create different looks and moods within your home. You can find traditional looking garden decor with a dark colored base and white shiny pots. There are also modern terracotta pots that have an abstract look to them and a lot of color. Create your own theme and create your own color scheme within your house.

Make sure to remove all the soil when you put your terrace furniture in your garden. You will also want to make sure that you check the root system of each plant you plan on placing inside your terrace. Some plants can actually take root on the side of your house making your house resemble a house that has been swallowed by the earth. Giant terracotta plants can be the best choice for your backyard but make sure that they are healthy and strong before you start putting them in your garden. If you do this properly you can be assured that your house will not only look beautiful but it will be a great investment as well.
