Repairing the Broken Plant Containers

Are you a gardener who likes repairing the broken plant containers using tape and other things? If you are, then I know how frustrating it can be when you have just taken the time to plant your favorite flowers and vegetables. If they don’t grow, then you are left with no choice but to replant them. And replanting them means buying new pots But, why not save money by repairing the broken plant containers first?

1. Inspect the Damage First

First, inspect the damage. Look at the bottom to see if there is any cracking, water leak, or other damage. Also check to see if there is any plastic on the bottom of the containers. You should easily be able to identify whether the damage is plastic or metal. Metal will usually be discolored and will look rougher than plastic, but both types will eventually deteriorate and fall apart.

2. Ways to Repair Broken Plant Containers

There are many ways that you can repair your pots before you buy new ones, including using tape. You can also do it with your bare hands. The following are some ways to repair plants using tape.

2.1 Repairing Plant Containers Using Epoxy Glue

For starters, if your broken plant container has a hole at the bottom, you can glue the bottom of the plant container using the epoxy glue. Do this by putting the hole in the plant’s bottom side first, then the top of the hole. Make sure you leave enough space to put another plant pot in. Then, tape the hole up so that the glue sticks to the sides.

2.2 Repairing Plant Containers Using Tape

If your plants have already developed roots, you can still repair the pots, even if your plant still hasn’t sprouted yet. To do this, remove your pots from the hole using tape. Gently water the soil around the plant, and then set it aside. Using your sharp spade, cut holes into the top of your plant’s pots, about one inch apart. These will be the areas where you will seed the plants.

Use the sharp spade to carefully dig a hole that is one inch deeper than the root ball of your plant. Fill with dirt, and then spread your plants’ roots. When the dirt is filled sufficiently, add some dirt and water. Let them sit for a few days, then you can remove them. And, remember to add some fertilizer, if necessary.

2.3 Repairing Plant Containers Using Bucket and Strong Tape

If your container plants don’t have any root systems, or they are developing root systems that are weak, you can still repair the pots. This method works best for plants that don’t have any support near the base of the plant. You will need a bucket and some strong tape, and you will begin by placing the plant pot upside down into the bucket. You will then begin digging a hole the same size as the roots, but wider, closer to the container’s base.

3. Checking If Plant Containers Are Repaired Properly

Make sure that you secure the bottom of the pot as well, because otherwise the hole or cracks will be leaking when you add the new contents. Add the water and slide it out carefully and wipe off any excess plastic or any air pockets. Make sure that the entire pot is cleaned and then fasten it back into the original plastic slot. You’ll want to tilt the pot while holding it in place so that you can fill it back up with contents without worrying about dripping water from the sides.

4. Making Sure that Your Plants Grow Healthy

To ensure that your plants grow healthy, you must avoid the growth of fungi and bacteria, by any damage in the container, which can harm your plants. To do this, you will need to dampen the soil in your containers before you place any plant pots in them. For plants that have already been planted, you can put a layer of mulch over the soil, or if it is new, you can put a layer of peat in the bottom of the pot. This will make it so your plants won’t be subject to the dryness that can be caused by soil moisture.
