Outdoor copper plant pots and copper planters have been in use in the garden for hundreds of years, from use around Georgian Manor houses to modern day show gardens.  This is due to the unique appearance of the metal and also its durability.   Unlike concrete or terracotta pots, copper will not fracture with frost and will last a lifetime.  Aesthetically, copper is also a favourite as it will look more elegant over time as a patina develops.

Despite the ruggedness and visual appeal of real copper in the garden, thermal conductivity should be considered.  Copper not only conducts electricity very well (the top 3 electrical conductors are in fact, silver, copper and gold) but it also conducts the heat from the sun in Summer and cold in Winter.

As such, to protect your planting from the elements, a layer of insulation should be employed.  This can be, for example, an internal plastic pot or gravel. A better and more sustainable alternative is natural wool insulation.

Luckily Hortiwool offers an easy, sustainable and practical solution. Hortiwool manufactures and sells woollen pads and liners for use around the garden. Wool is a 100% natural material which boasts many beneficial properties for the gardener, for example, it will retain moisture to hydrate your planting, it will deter slugs and snails and it will eventually decompose providing nutrients back into the soil.

As such, Hortiwool offers the perfect solution of thermal insulation to protect your plants from the elements whilst allowing you to use copper plant pots and copper planters around the garden all year round with plants that need some protection.
