Starting A Business? Wholesale Ceramic Pots Are Booming This Season.
Gardening as a business is the new trend. It is growing exponentially. Gardening is a fast-growing business idea that can save clients money, enhance the landscape, and benefit the environment all at the same time. Gardening is not only a hobby anymore but also a legitimate business and an exceptional source of income when made trendy and catchy. One of the wisest investments can be made when investing in pots, as they are universally accepted as one of the best ways of gardening. Traditional outdoor pots or containers can be used to produce gardens of a smaller size.
A small business as a gardener may be the right business idea for you if you have a passion for gardening and a desire to help people to get their gardens started, whether it's a vegetable garden, herb garden, or flower garden. With the booming gardening industry and parts of our lives being stuck at home, it is viable to invest in pots as they are booming in this covid-hit season.
People who run a home-based pottery business can sell their wares to wholesalers or on consignment. It's a great way to get involved in trade shows and artisan fairs. In addition to that, the online market of pots is growing at an exponential rate as people are looking forward to getting their hands on the most beautiful of robust creations. The process of production should be streamlined.
Ceramic pots are where it’s at this season because their thick walls protect the roots of the plant from harsh climates. Ceramics consist of a variety of materials and typical ceramic pots share a lot of things in common. They are extremely resistant to rapid temperature changes and are popular in these times. Porous in nature, these pots allow water to flow through them and ease out the function of breathability and many other mechanisms involved in planting. Plants in ceramic pots, on the other hand, require more water than plants in plastic pots.
Ceramic pots, when left unglazed, provide a healthy habitat for most plants by allowing air and moisture to pass through the edges of the pot. The fine roots placed at the edge where the soil and pot walls touch can take advantage of the moisture and air. Unglazed ceramic pots can also absorb moisture from the potting soil, removing it from the potting soil.
Glazed ceramic pots do not dry up as quickly as unglazed ceramic pots, but they do hinder airflow. Plastic pots, like glazed pots, do not allow air exchange and retain moisture for longer. Plastic pots are ideal for houseplants that require a lot of moisture and for people who forget to water them regularly. Ceramic pots not only provide all these wonderful benefits but are also aesthetically pleasing and their appearance can be altered in many ways, up to the imagination of the maker.
Having a deeper look at alternatives to glazed ceramic pots, you aren’t spoilt for choice.
There is the typical plastic pot which is a sign of neglect for the environment. In addition to that, plastic pots do not allow air and water to pass through thus being overall detrimental to the plant’s health. They are also lighter than ceramic pots and are more likely to tip over. They also attract and trap heat when exposed to direct sunlight, thus causing early wilting.
Speaking of the unglazed regular terracotta plants, they easily crack in the cold and are very susceptible to damage, more water and higher maintenance is required by the plants in these pots and obviously, these pots are extremely heavy. Ceramic pots are not that different from their terracotta counterparts, the main difference lies in the fact that a coat of lacquer is usually applied to ceramic pots to prevent the soil from drying out as quickly as it would in an unglazed clay or terracotta planter.
