This grow pot is straight sided with no rim and has no base, so can be nestled into your top soil in the bed or boarder and then filled with compost and planted up giving a clean and contemporary look. It is ideal for plants that like a warmer rootball and is useful for keeping fruits such as strawberries or courgettes off the ground. Make sure that you push or dig the pot in at least 70mm into the soil so that the roots of the plant will be able to draw moisture up from the surrounding area once the plant has matured. Copper tape can be wrapped around the grow pot to help prevent snail and slug damage to the potted plants.
Each pot is fired to 1080 degrees C to make them as frost resistant as possible. However we would always suggest that, just to be extra safe, in the very cold months that you move empty or full pots into a sheltered spot.
These terracotta pots are hand thrown and will vary slightly in height and diameter from batch to batch.
