Terracotta Pots and Fruit Salad Trees

Terracotta Pots and Fruit Salad Trees

There is no doubt that terracotta pots have a certain romantic beauty that can’t be replicated by plastic. However, due to their porosity, they do lose significant amounts of water, especially when they are in full summer sun – precisely where your Fruit Salad Tree should be. Plants planted in terracotta pots dry out quickly and therefore require frequent watering. A solution to this is sealing the pot inside, or outside, or even both with a penetrating sealer such as stone sealer or pond sealer. Alternatively liquid rubber or even low toxicity paint will do the trick too.
