Apta pots have been around for hundreds of years and are an old form of container gardening. The idea of putting a pot in a hole was first used to keep plants out of the rain. Then the idea of putting a pot on the ground was adopted and that is how it got its name. Today, there are more advanced methods of container gardening but the Apta pot still enjoys a lot of popularity.
These pots are made from strong plastic that resists chemicals and water. They are easy to handle because they are designed so that they sit on the bottom and there is no need for supports under the pot. It’s just a matter of sticking it in the ground. The other difference between the Apta pot and other form of container gardening is that you can plant anything you want in them. If your aim is just to bring some colour to the garden then you don’t need to be putting much effort into the plants.
If, on the other hand, you want to grow a lot of flowers or plants for your vegetable patch then you should consider container planting. Container gardening is popular not only because it is economical but also because it is very enjoyable. Even if you don’t have a green thumb you can still be successful at it. The hard work is only half of the fun though.
Container pot gardening can be used to grow almost any kind of plant that you can imagine. Some examples are alpine santina and dwarf junipers. Both these species can be found in nature in the wild, where they grow in the country side. You don’t need a greenhouse to have an amazing display of plants. All you really need is some pots and some regular pots to put your favorite plants in.
If you have a regular four feet by six feet garden ponds then you will have room for at least three plants in each pot. If you don’t have a pond then all you need to grow aquatic plants in pots instead of the ordinary soil plants. Water plants need water and pots make it easy for you to provide the water they need. Ponds will require more care when it comes to watering since you have to be constantly monitoring the levels. On the other hand, water pots work very well if you plan to just give them as a decoration to add color and beauty to your garden.
You can choose from among two kinds of pots: those with holes and those without holes. The most common among container plants is the container with holes. These pots are easy to manage and clean since you can just remove dirt or the top soil and toss it away. On the other hand, there are many reasons why you should prefer using containers with holes. First, they are more durable. Also, since you can place the plant in any size you want this will give you more flexibility as far as where you place it and how big its roots can grow.
You need to ensure that the soil where you are planting your plants is finely chopped before you start planting them in the pots. Small spaces or areas with limited amount of space are preferred for this purpose. Keep in mind that plants will need good drainage because of their design. In this case, plant pots that come with drainage holes are more preferred since they will allow water to flow out freely and also regulate the temperature inside the container.
When choosing the size of the pots that you are going to use in your container gardening activities, it is important that you consider your budget. You can easily find pots in affordable prices in the market. However, keep in mind that even cheap pots may still be durable and strong if you take good care of it. Also, make sure that the pot you purchase will perfectly fit the hole that you have made. With a bit of proper maintenance and by investing time, effort, and money, you will surely be rewarded with a bountiful garden.
