Even if you have a black thumb when it comes to gardening, these stunning self-watering interior/exterior planters (available in the Netherlands) make it easy to grow and maintain colorful flowers year-round…
Expats in the Netherlands will find that Dutch weather is not always the most conducive to maintaining indoor plants or growing outdoor flowers. The sun can often go missing for weeks at a time and if you live in a low-floor apartment facing any direction but south, your plants or flowers may not end up with direct sunlight even when it does come out.
Not knowing for sure what the weather in Holland is going to be like from day to day, makes it difficult to accurately gauge how often and how plants need to be watered. For this reason, one should take a look at self-watering planters and flower baskets. They monitor the soil’s moisture level and release water from a reservoir to avoid the plant becoming too dry.
You might be surprised to see just how attractive these self-watering planters can be, how many shapes, sizes and textures they come in AND the fact that can be used indoors or outside.
