Pot Stand Quandary



  • Buy a plant pot base, (plastic, ceramic, what ever will look good with your pot). Fill it with ball bearings or marbles, (the aesthetics are up to you). It’s important that what you fill it with is round to ensure good drainage. Now just stand your pot on top. Water will be able to drain from your plant pot and if the base gets totally filled with water it will just spill over on to the patio or grass. Try to make sure your plant pot has lots of drainage holes because the recommended solution I’ve given won’t be as free draining as standing on a trivet!

    Quite a few of my pots stand on two bricks - one brick if they are small. Others just stand on the gravel. I have a couple of pots with pot feet but they are a bit of a faff.

    Why not buy a metal or wooden plant stand and just unscrew the castors.

    Some pieces of old slate should do it. Stack them as high as you want
