The right container, in the right spot, is always a pleasure to see. Container gardening is a great way to add colour to challenging landscapes.
All our outdoor planters are weatherproof and suitable for winter use. To ensure longevity. follow the tips below.
If your planter is exposed to the elements, it is prudent to insulate with 1/2″ Styrofoam. This will help buffer a planter that has begun the winter with wet soil. As the soil freezes and expands the Styrofoam will help prevent the pot from cracking. Also make sure the base does not overwinter in a damp or wet position as freezing and unfreezing will ultimately cause damage. We recommend 6″ to 12″ of drainage at the bottom so that the base is not filled with wet soil.
This will also improve longevity for any perennial plant material you may use in your pots. If you insulate your pots the root systems are more likely to be protected from winter temperature fluctuations that cause damage.
Portofino pots do not want to be left in prolonged moisture. We recommend that you have at least 6” to 12” of drainage in the bottom and elevate them if placed in a wet area.
Any planters with wooden legs should have a sealant applied to the legs if being left outside.
If using Stonelite planters outside please drill a drainage hole so water can escape.
We typically will process an order in 24 hours, but it can take longer during high season.
