Pots are suitable containers to house plants. Large, small, round or rectangular, the pots lend themselves to the cultivation of different species. Not all are suitable for being buried in these containers, but most of the plants lend themselves very well to “tailor-made” cultivation, as they say. The pots are used, in fact, in very small or limited spaces, such as terraces and balconies, but also in gardens where there is not enough space for open field cultivation. The vases can also have an intense decorative value, especially to emphasize the entrances of a house or the paths of a garden with a classic and strongly traditional style.

Placed on the balcony, the planters allow you to create a small green corner to be taken care of with simplicity. On a large garden, however, the same can give life to real plant compositions that imitate flower beds or open field borders. The planters can be made of the same material as the pots: earthenware and plastic. Like the vases, there are also wooden and concrete planters. The choice between one material and the other will be made based on the type of plant to be grown or based on the aesthetic objectives to be achieved.
