B Green’s outdoor pots are frost-proof

 

To ensure the guarantee on your pots, we have compiled a list of advice to help you protect them from the cold.

Our frost-proof guarantee means that your pots should not be damaged by frost.  They are made of clay which is a natural material, but for them to cope with frost they require a little bit of help from you.

We therefore recommend that you adhere to the following advice

  • The hole in the base of the pot should be kept clear and not be covered or closed.
  • Excess water needs to be able to drain from the pot. To help this process, fill 1/3 of it with leca-balls or something similar eg. small stones.  If water remains in the pot it can, when frozen, cause it to fracture or break.
  • In winter, pots should be raised rather than placed directly on the ground or grass – it is a good idea to use pot feet to do this. These feet provide the correct clearance of 1 -2cm that allows water to drain from the pot.  You can find our range of LION FEET and IRON STANDS in the *webshop here.
  • If you normally use a saucer then this should be removed in winter, otherwise water will collect in it, causing the pot to break.
  • Try to avoid moving or hitting the pot during winter.
  • Finally – be careful not to water plants if frost is forecast.
