How to Make Your Own Easy Concrete Planters
A flowerpot , flower pot , planter , planterette , or alternatively plant pot is a container in which flowers and other plants are cultivated and displayed. Historically, and still to a significant extent today, they are made from plain terracotta with no ceramic glaze , with a round shape, tapering inwards.
Flowerpots are now often also made from plastic , metal , wood , stone , or sometimes biodegradable material. An example of biodegradable pots are ones made of heavy brown paper , cardboard , or peat moss in which young plants for transplanting are grown.
For seedling starting in commercial greenhouses or polytunnels , pots usually take the form of trays with cells, each cell acting as one small pot. These trays are often called flats.
There are usually holes in the bottom of pots, to allow excess water to flow out,  sometimes to a saucer that is placed under the flowerpot. The plant can use this water with its roots , as needed. Recently, some flowerpots have been made with an automatic watering system, using a reservoir. Flowerpots have a number of uses such as transporting plants to new locations, starting seeds, patio and indoor cultivation of plants, and the growing of tender plants in colder regions indoors.
The Romans brought potted plants inside during cold weather. In the 18th century, pots were used to ship breadfruit seedlings from Tahiti to the West Indies. Also Orchids , African violets and Pelargonium geraniums were shipped in pots from other parts of the world, including Africa , to North America and Europe. In the 18th century, Josiah Wedgwood 's flowerpots or cachepots , were very popular; they were often highly decorative and used as table centrepieces.
In Athens , earthenware flowerpots were thrown into the sea during the festival of the Gardens of Adonis. Theophrastus , c. The top of the flowerpot underneath the rim is commonly known as the shoulder or collar and can aid handling. Flower pots were traditionally made from terracotta. They were made and sold by the cast, which is the number of pots produced from a given quantity of clay.
The traditional sizes  were as follows, although others existed:. Other sources give different values, and sometimes names, for the smaller pots, for example The Gardener's Everyday Log Book while agreeing on "twos" to "thirty-twos" has two different types of "sixties" and disagrees on "thumbs" and "thimbles": . A taller and thinner shape of pot, suitable for deep-rooting plants, was known as a long tom , a term still used. In the nursery business, plants are generally grown in round or square plastic pots.
Some organisations such as the Royal Horticultural Society encourage the reuse of plastic plant pots and trays across their retail centres. Edibleculture , this is done by not letting the plastic growing pots leave the garden centre, and simply place the plant inside a cardboard or newspaper  sleeve for transportation. Peat pots and paper pots are also being used,   and have the advantage of facilitating transplanting  as they do not need to be pulled out of a container for planting purposes rather, the whole of container and plant is directly planted.
Also, for sale purposes, there is no need to recover the container as it is biodegradable and can not and does not need to be reused or recycled. Some types exist focusing on vegetables,  whereas other paper pot systems exist that focus on larger plants i. An SP4 pot is commonly called a "4-inch" or "quart" container.
Plastic pots come in a number of standard sizes, with a code indicating the approximate dimensions of the diameter at the top. The choice of the pot will in part determine the size of the plants.
This does not mean that all plants will thrive better in bigger pots. Especially for succulents it is important that the soil does not stay wet for a long time, as this may cause their roots to rot.
The smaller those plants are relative to the soil volume, the longer they take to use all pot water. Bonsai plants are also purposely planted in small pots, not only for aesthetics but also because the low supply of nutrients keeps the leaves smaller and the growth down. Because they are often not as drought resistant as succulents, this implies they have to be watered often.
Next to the size, also the shape of the pot is relevant. Water in the soil of high pots is more easily pulled down by gravitational forces than in low pots, and hence the soil does not remain wet for a long time  This is relevant as plant roots of most species do not only need water, but also air oxygen. If the potting soil is too wet plants may suffer from a lack of oxygen around the roots. A third relevant aspect is the colour and material the pot is made of.
The soil in black pots exposed to sunlight will warm up more quickly than soil in white pots. Clay pots are permeable for water and therefore water from inside the pot soil can evaporate through the walls out of the pot.
Pots that are glazed or made from plastic lose less water through evaporation. If they have no holes at the bottom either, plants may suffer from remaining too wet.

ГЛАВА 87 Веспа выехала в тихий переулок Каретерра-де-Хуелва. Еще только начинало светать, но движение уже было довольно оживленным: молодые жители Севильи возвращались после ночных пляжных развлечений. Резко просигналив, пронесся мимо мини-автобус, до отказа забитый подростками. Мотоцикл Беккера показался рядом с ним детской игрушкой, выехавшей на автостраду.
Необходим прямо. Она встала, но ноги ее не слушались.
И, повернувшись к Большому Брату, нажатием клавиши вызвала видеоархив. Мидж это как-нибудь переживет, - сказал он себе, усаживаясь за свой стол и приступая к просмотру остальных отчетов. Он не собирается выдавать ключи от директорского кабинета всякий раз, когда Мидж придет в голову очередная блажь. Не успел он приняться за чтение отчета службы безопасности, как его мысли были прерваны шумом голосов из соседней комнаты.
На сей раз голос его прозвучал с несвойственным ему спокойствием: - Директор, если мы введем неверный ключ… - Верно, - прервала его Сьюзан. - Если Танкадо ничего не заподозрил, нам придется ответить на ряд вопросов. - Как у нас со временем, Джабба? - спросил Фонтейн. Джабба посмотрел на ВР.
- У Стратмора стол ломится от заказов. Вряд ли он позволил бы ТРАНСТЕКСТУ простаивать целый уик-энд.
