How to make better root in glazed ceramic pot

Each tomato label urges you to plant tomatoes deep in a glazed ceramic pot, so that a full 2/3 of the plant is underground. That means that if you buy a 10-inch tall plant, all but the top three inches is buried. Why? Because the plant will have a better, stronger root system. Better roots mean better tomatoes.

Whether in a big glazed ceramic pot or in the ground, set each tomato plant so that 2/3 of the plant is buried.

We know, we know. This goes against everything you’ve ever heard about “don’t plant too deeply or you’ll kill the plant.” Tomatoes break that rule. They sprout roots along the buried stem. The extra roots strengthen a plant so that it can support more fruit and is better able to survive hot weather. (This applies whether you’re growing in the ground, in a raised bed, or in a container.)

In really heavy soil, or if you just don’t want to dig deeply, you can lay the plant on its side, provided that it is at least 5 or 6 inches deep when buried, and that the ground beneath it isn’t hard as a brick. To do this, angle the plant so that the growing tip is above ground. If your soil drains poorly, create a raised bed with potting soil that is piled at least 8 inches above ground level.

Once you’ve nearly buried it in soil, only the top few inches of the plant will be exposed. Water well, label the plant (to help you remember which variety you’re growing), and watch your tomato plant grow big and strong. Within a few weeks, your plants with super roots will delight you with a bountiful harvest of lovely fruit.

Growing basil in a glazed ceramic pottery

A woody, branching plant, basil is a warm-weather annual that grows very fast in 80- to 90-degree weather. When growing basil, note that two or three plants will yield plenty of fresh basil for a family of four — unless you plan to make pesto. (To make and freeze a winter’s supply of pesto, plant a dozen or more.) Many gardeners mix various types of basil in their flower beds, where it is ready for a quick harvest anytime. It is also great for containers. Basil can be a beautiful addition to the garden and landscape. This pot of purple basil provides height, color, and flavor in a patio-side garden bed. You can plant a mix of different types of basil (in this case, sweet basil, spicy globe basil, and Thai basil) in a large, colorful glazed ceramic pottery. Not only will it look lovely sitting on the deck or patio, but it will also put a range of flavors at your fingertips.

Soil, Planting, And Care

basil needs 6 to 8 hours of sun; in the South and Southwest, it benefits from afternoon shade. Set out plants at least 2 weeks after the last frost in spring; summer planting is okay, too. Space at the distance recommended on the label, which is generally 12 to 18 inches apart. Plants are very frost sensitive, so keep plants protected in case of a late cold spell. Basil likes rich, moist, but well-drained soil with a pH of 6 to 7. Because basil is harvested continually for lots of leaves, it needs a little fertilizer. When planting, add plenty of organic nutrients from compost, blood meal, or cottonseed meal to the soil. Feed with Bonnie Herb, Vegetable & Flower Plant Food every couple of weeks to help keep tender new leaves coming on as you pinch back the stem tips.

If planting in a glazed ceramic pottery, use a large ceramic pot to keep the plants from drying out quickly in hot weather. You may also want to add a water-retaining polymer to the potting soil to keep the soil evenly moist and extend the time between waterings

How to Build a Large Outdoor Ceramic Pot Fountain

Nothing is more relaxing than the sound of moving water in the garden. Here’s how to build a one-of-a-kind water feature in a weekend.

This water feature consists of an underground, waterproof basin; sturdy grating; and a large outdoor ceramic pot of your choice. Most of the supplies you will need can be found at a plumbing supply or hardware store or a nursery that carries water garden supplies.

Step 1: Plumb the pot

For this step, you’ll need your large ceramic pot, a 1 3/4″ by 1″ barb fitting, a 1 3/4″ PVC female adapter, plumbers epoxy, and a drill with a half-inch masonry bit.

First, using a masonry bit, create a drainage hole in the bottom of the ceramic pot. If yours already has a hole, it’ll probably need to be widened by slowly rotating the masonry bit around the sides of the hole.

Then put the barb fitting into the hole so the threaded end goes inside the glazed pot.

Next, thread the PVC female adapter onto the end of the barb inside of the pot.

Finally, put plumber’s epoxy around the base of the fitting to seal it in place and make the container watertight.

Step 2: Install the reservoir

For this step, you’ll need a waterproof catch basin, a few cinder blocks, some sand, a heavy duty plastic grate, four feet of flexible tubing, a submersible pump, two hose clamps, flexible screen/mesh, and a reciprocating saw.

TIP: A pot 30 inches tall or less will need a pump rated at 950 gallons per hour (gph) or less. A taller pot requires 950 gallons or more.

Dig a hole deep enough to allow your catch basin to sit slightly above ground level.

Shovel in a 1″ layer of sand. This allows you to easily level the reservoir by shifting the sand.

Place two or three cinder blocks in the center of the basin to give additional support to the pot.

Cut a trap door in the corner of the plastic grate that is large enough for the pump to easily pass through. This gives you easy access to the pump for maintenance without having to disassemble the entire fountain.

Cut a small hole in the center of the grate for the flexible tubing.

Attach the one end of the tubing to the pump, clamp it in place, and poke the other end out the hole in the center of the grate.

Place the screening over the grate and cut a corresponding hole for the flexible tubing.

Step 3: Place the fountain

For this step, you will a length of 3/4″ PVC pipe, black spray paint, and some decorative stones.

Cut a piece of 3/4″ PVC pipe so that it is the same height as the pot and spray the top 6″ with black paint.

Then, place the PVC pipe (black side up) into the PVC female adaptor in the bottom of the pot.

Bring the ceramic pot over to reservoir. Twist the flexible tubing onto the barb sticking out of the bottom of the pot and clamp in place.

Slowly lift the pot into a standing position. If you have a large pot, you may need a friend to help you with this step.

Place decorative stones on top of the screening to disguise the reservoir.

Then, fill the reservoir with water, turn on the pump, and enjoy.
