Title (EN) KENROCK PLANTERS
(FR) JARDINIÈRES DE ROCHE KENROCK
Abstract:
(EN) These are Rocks collected from areas of past volcanic activity and have weathered into sizes that are easily handled. They are modified by chiseling, drilling and mechanically removed parts creating an area for planting shrubs, palm trees, etc, Rock planters create a micro- climate within' the plant that Is humid enough and tend to release nutrients for plant growth which cjre never deficient of minerals and leaching Is unlikely to occur. Spanish moss or Aptenias, ferns, moss and hosts of climbers thrive in the small crevices of the rock. Proper draining capacity of the rocks prevents water logging since the water is well utilised and the plants do not easily dry up due to the microdimate created. The planters set indoors/outdoors come with combined advantage of beauty and air purification.
(FR) L'invention concerne des roches provenant de zones d'activité volcanique ancienne et altérées en tailles qui sont facilement manipulées. Elles sont modifiées par chiselage et forage, les parties enlevées mécaniquement créant une zone pour planter des arbustes, des palmiers, etc. Les jardinières de roche créent un microclimat dans l'installation qui est suffisamment humide et tend à libérer des nutriments en vue de la croissance des plantes qui ne manquent jamais de minéraux et il est improbable qu'une fuite ait lieu. De la mousse d'Espagne ou des aptenias, des fougères, de la mousse et des hôtes de plantes grimpantes prospèrent dans les petites crevasses de la roche. La capacité de drainage adéquate des roches empêche un engorgement puisque l'eau est bien utilisée et que les plantes ne se dessèchent pas facilement en raison du microclimat créé. Les jardinières installées à l'intérieur/en extérieur s'accompagnent des avantages combinés de la beauté et de la purification de l'air.
