Description

Setting pots and planters directly on a patio or deck can cause permanent moisture stains or, even worse, on a wooden deck it can cause the wood to rot. These ingenious deck protectors have dozens of small feet to let air flow freely underneath to prevent water damage.

Offered as a set of two; each one can be center cored so the pieces can hold one small and one large planter.

Each protector measures 12″ in diameter and holds a pot 1/2″ up off the surface. Made from a non-breakable high-density polymer.

A simple solution to a common problem.

How to protect container plants and pots from winter frost

Plants love to grow in pots during summer, but they are exposed to the elements in winter. In the soil, roots are protected by the warmth of the earth. But in pots they are vulnerable to winter frost, snow and cold winds.

Patio pots are also prone to waterlogging in times of heavy rain, which can kill plants. Sodden soil has all the air pushed out of it by the water, meaning roots can’t access any oxygen.

As if that’s not enough, cold temperatures can also cause pots to flake and crack, damaging or killing the plant in the process.

So, here is how to make sure all your container plants, and pots, survive the winter weather.

Move tender plants

Plants that are not winter hardy simply need moving to a frost-free location.

A cool greenhouse, porch or conservatory is ideal. Large, established specimens can be placed in a sheltered spot against the wall of the house, which should be warmer.
