Where in the past plants were sold in the well-known orange pots, they are now usually sold in black plastic containers. In both cases you need flower pots to put them somewhere nice in the house or in the garden. The collection of flower pots is very extensive these days. Elho pots, for example, are available in all materials and colours. This sector is also clearly moving with the times. Elho’s illuminated pots are a clear example. They create a very special effect in the garden or on the balcony and are energy-efficient.
Traditional flower pots
The collection of clay or earthenware can be called that. The choice of this material in the past was certainly not accidental. These flower pots are UV-resistant, waterproof and frost-resistant. You can easily clean such a pot with water and a mild soap. If a layer of lime has formed, remove it by soaking the pot in vinegar water for a while. You can also paint a clay or earthenware flower pot yourself and make it fit in with your (new) interior. These pots have a rural look but actually fit with everything and are familiar.
Plastic clearly has a different look than clay or earthenware, but the choice is enormous. The Elho collection of synthetic flower pots is enormous. Plastic is light and strong. The material does not breathe and the soil therefore stays moist for longer. Cleaning is simple and the flower pots continue to look as new even after years. However, such pots should be placed on a firm surface, otherwise there is a risk of them tipping over or being blown away. If you use large plastic pots outdoors, it is a good idea to weight the pot down by placing some stones underneath, for example. Plastic pots are certainly an asset in a modern interior, but they can also be used elsewhere.
