Still, it looks like a good way to landscape.
Here, in the Atlanta area, landscapers commonly rotate stock at customer sites. An easy way to do that is to have the large pots reserve the space needed for the plants.

RE: Pot-in-Pot Method

yes, I use a very similar method. It works great if your trying to get a feeling for how the plants would look in different locations. and of course so you can bring them inside without digging them up

RE: Pot-in-Pot Method

I use that method with my cannas because the love water and they are easy to bring inside for the winter.

And I use it here in Jacksonville, Florida for my plumerias. They cannot survive the occasional winter freezes. Even though they are short and random, the plumeria won't live. So I use pot in pot and bring them into the garage in the winter.

RE: Pot-in-Pot Method

I have noticed that it is very common method in Florida - and I actually saw somebody post pictures of their vegtable garden using pot in pot - it had something to do with the soil. That was what started to get me thinking - I know a lot of people bury plants in pots, but that just seemed like it would be too much work. I have recently noticed that Patio Plants dot com suggests using the pot in pot method for palms in northern ares.
