Which compost should I use in my stone pots/planters?
We recommend using a multi-purpose organic compost, or ericaceous compost, when planting up cast stone pots or planters. This will avoid any potential unsightly staining or discolouration of your planters. We use Durstons compost in all of our Show Garden cast stone planters.
Do my planters need drainage holes?
It is vital that your stone planters have drainage holes. Proper drainage allows excess water to drain from the soil, which enables good airflow and the flushing of salts from the soil.
If your plants sit in water for too long this can lead to root rot developing. This can be irreversible and could result in killing young or established plants.
What is the best time of day to water my potted plants?
During the summer, plants that are potted in planters, troughs or urns should be watered during the morning between 6am – 10am before the heat of the day sets in. This will ensure any water does not evaporate before your plants and the soil has had chance to drink it. The early evening is also a good time to water your potted plants, as this will also any excess water to evaporate before nightfall.
Another reason to avoid watering potted plants during the heat of the day is to avoid your stone planters from cracking. Splashing cold water onto hot stone can cause cracking, however this is very rare, and stone remains the most durable and long-lasting material for planters as permanent outdoor fixtures.
