Green lovers are the new trend in our Country!
Among lock-down, yellow, orange and red areas, Italian people are spending their time in different ways such as realizing various hobbies, mostly of them at home. Among these ones we find out the garden hobby as a great solution. We’re living in a “relaxing” time when we can take care of our plants as we have to forget our usual chaotic lives during the lockdown.
And what is important is that gardening does not only imply the luck of having a garden in your house: a terrace, a balcony and even just the window of your house are enough!
Gardening: a rewarding and healthy hobby!
Gardening is good for your health and now also science is confirming it. Putting our hands on plants, into earth and among flowers makes us feel good, physically and psychologically. What has always been an intuition has now also found its confirmation in the studies of researchers. Taking care of your green space is good for your mood, increases self-confidence, it means relax and wellness and decreases the risk of depression.
It is a magic remedy!
Science researches confirm that the green lovers have a better chance of staying healthy than those who do not practice this hobby that means fitness too and it helps us to preserve muscle elasticity and above all it improves our contact with beauty of life and nature; it is an helpful remedy against the stress of chaotic life.
Great, isn’t it? 😊
In spring, the garden centers offer a wonderful show. Bringing home some unusual plants that are for us original means a personal satisfaction that enjoys us ..but it is not enough … let’s keep in mind three basic suggestions:
• Ask all the information about the plant you want to buy
• Choose the right pot where you are going to fit your plant;
• Learn all the necessary information how to take care of your plant
And of course, we have to be patient, optimistic and show a constant “green” dedication!
THE ADVICE OF PLASTECNIC
Two basic suggestions:
1.When you choose the plants you like most you have also to pay attention to the choice of the right pots.
Plants have their own environment and the right pot must not only be beautiful but it must be of quality, functional and satisfy all those technical features that allow the plants themselves to stay healthy.
Some plants need a lot of water, so it is important to assure a minimum water supply either by using a saucer or inside the pot itself.
Other plants, on the other hand, suffer from water stagnation and here we must choose a pot with proper holes in the bottom to facilitate the water flow.
We can make a different choice and put another pot inside the chosen container without holes (cache-pot function):
2. Repotting: do we all know that this is a basic operation?
After winter time and with the arrival of the spring most of plants are blooming and in many cases they need a pot with bigger sizes. This is why it becomes important to carry out a repotting operation! This operation is really very important for the health of your plant itself and that is why at Plastecnic we project and manufacture pots in different sizes.
If, on the other hand, we buy a new plant, remember that its relative pot is not always able to satisfy your personal aesthetic needs … even here we’re supporting you! 12 Plastecnic offers on the market different lines of pots in “evergreen” and “contemporary” styles ” that allow you to choose the best according to your tastes! We are allowing to everyone to make the most suitable choice for their needs!
