How do I plant concrete plant pots correctly?
A good drainage is of immense importance. It is best to first fill the buckets hand-width with expanded clay. In this way, water and nutrients can be optimally stored to supply the plants according to their needs.
Afterwards the plant pot can be filled with soil. When planting new plants you should use special potting soil or peat-free soil. Do not underestimate the required amount. A larger plant pot can hold more soil than you might think at first.
Note: You should avoid sandy or loamy garden soil. Topsoil from your own garden is also not suitable. It contains too much weed seeds, goutweed and similar undesirable substances. This could impair the growth of new plants. A sufficient water supply is very important. Please note that in concrete containers more and more liquid is drawn from the soil.
Which plants you finally plant depends on the location of the planter (sun, shade or partial shade) and on your personal taste. You can choose only one type of plant) or you can combine different plants.
