Plant containers for your garden or balcony: decorative and practical

Plant containers for your garden or balcony: decorative and practical

A German-British research team from the University of Sheffield has reported that the colour green has a beneficial effect on our soul. “One who spends time in natural surroundings and feeds his eyes with the colour green, provides relaxation for his body and soul, increases his powers of concentration and raises his spirits”. This observation can now be proved scientifically, as well.

Unfortunately, not everybody has the time to go into natural surroundings at least once a day to relax and recover from everyday stresses and strains. A balcony with nice plants, a green terrace or your own garden can provide relief in such a case. However, so that you do not subject yourself to even more stress, you should keep a few things in mind when purchasing plant containers:

  1. The flower pots should be stable, frost-proof and UV-resistant
  2. See that they are made of high-grade material
  3. Choose a self watering planter instead of a conventional flower pot
  4. A fresh design for your decorative bowl pleases the eye, additionally
