Floating Garden Advantages

Guest Author - Sheri Ann Richerson

Placing individual pots of plants inside of the larger Floating Garden container allows for ease in changing the arrangement as the flowers fade or you simply want a change of scenery. It is also far easier and less messy to remove individual containers and store them for winter if the gardener chooses to place non-hardy plants in it than to dig plants or remove pots from the pond.

Another advantage is that the Floating Planters protect the plants from damage by fish. Since the fish never actually see the roots of the plants there is no chance that the fish will eat the plants or that they will be harmed by plants that may be poisonous to them.

In addition to the Floating Planters, there are also several varieties of pools that can be sold to display the planters in. The pools are octagonal in shape and easy to assemble. They can be used indoors or outdoors and come in a wide range of sizes and finishes including Oak, Cedar and Stainless Steel.

The are designed to hold a depth of eleven inches of water and can accommodate fish. The pools can be used in combination with the Floating Planters or as a stand alone water garden feature. They do come equipped with a small electric pump that imparts a gentle movement to the water.

The Floating Garden kits can easily be placed in reception areas, patios, lawns, conservatories or anyplace where a water garden feature would be appropriate. The advantage to this is that the pools require no digging and can easily be moved to another area.

Drawing consumersí attention to these to Floating Garden kits should be a piece of cake. Since they are simple to set up, easy to move and able to be displayed indoors or out my suggestion would be to set one up so that the first item they see upon entering your place of business is the Floating Garden.

Instead of simply setting boxes around for customers to purchase, take some of the planters out of the boxes and strategically plant them. If possible, set up several Floating Gardens throughout your shop. Fill one with perennials, one with annuals and donít forget to add some of those great plants that are often overlooked.

Design the area around the displays with natural looking filler plants such as small shrubs or standards. This is another great way to draw customersí eyes to plants that blend in when they are among all the other ones. Donít forget the heat loving tropical plants. They look great around a water feature and donít really mind the hot summer heat.

Make this season your best one yet by featuring the Floating Garden kits, Floating Planters and pools. Be sure to change the displays frequently and possibly even make the theme match the month. For example, June is National Rose Month, make a rose garden. For July dress your Floating Garden kit up in red, white and blue. This is sure to increase sales of both the product and the accessories throughout the growing season.
