Fill the planter one third with Hydro grain and two thirds with potting soil.
Make sure that the soil cannot clog the drainage hole. This can be done by laying mesh on the bottom. In this way, the water can run off and there is no risk that the planter breaks or ruptures in frost.
Next, fill 1/3 of the planter with Hydro grains. This allows for better water management in the planter so that your plants grow better.
Then fill the planter with potting soil. You can choose to sprinkle a layer of Hydro grains on the potting soil. This has a decorative effect and ensures that the top layer of the potting soil will dry out less rapidly.
If the planter is filled, you may not drag it around. The weight of the Hydro grain and the potting soil could cause the planter to rupture.
Please note: our pots are only unbreakable if the potted plants and their roots remain in proportion. Plants with fast-growing roots increase the pressure inside a flowerpot and are therefore unsuitable for planting in flowerpots. Such plants include trees, fast-growing plants, such as banana plants, and bamboo. In general, these plants should be planted in open soil. In case of doubt, you may always contact our service department or ask for advice at your garden centre.
Planters can get dirty, especially when you use them outside. You can easily clean planters by using a soft brush or cloth, optionally with warm water and some detergent. Make sure to use a soft cloth for shiny planters to prevent scratches. Never use a high pressure cleaner, caustic detergents or products containing chlorine or other bleaching ingredients. If you have questions about cleaning your planters you can always contact our service department.
