Palmers flower pot

Previous - Next

1832. Palmer's improved flower-pot (fig. 455.) has the advantage of not blowing down in windy weather, and not allowing the worms to enter when the pot is standing on the ground. The pot has also the advantage of never getting what is called water-logged, that is to say, the hole in the bottom of the pot becoming stopped so as to prevent the proper drainage of the soil in the pot.
