_1 Claim. (Cl. 47—34)
The present invention relates to new and use
a plurality of openings 01-, perforations 6 which
establish communication between said pot and
ful improvements in ?ower and plant containers
or pots and has for its primary object to provide
the chamber 4, said openings 6 being also for
a device of this character comprising a novel
the passage of air and water.
It is thought that the‘ manner in which the
construction and arrangement whereby surplus
moisture may be readily drained, thus preventing
the soil from souring in addition to permitting
container functions will be readily apparent from
a consideration of the foregoing. Excess mois
ture in the pot I drains through the openings 6
free passage of oxygen to the roots of the young
Other objects of the invention are to provide a 10
?ower and plant container of the aforemen-v.
tioned character which will be comparatively
simple in construction, strong, durable, highly ,
into the chamber 4 where it may accumulate and
from, which it may be readily poured through
the openings 5. Air from the atmosphere is
free to enter the chamber 4 through the open
ings 5, said air then passing through the open
ings 6 into the lower portion of the pot I. By
e?icient and reliable in use, attractive in ap
pearance and which may be manufactured at 15 ventilating and draining excess moisture from
low cost.
All of the foregoing and still further objects
and advantages of the invention will become ap
parent from a study of the following speci
?cation, taken in connection with the accom
panying drawing wherein like characters of ref
erence designate corresponding parts throughout
the several views, and wherein:
the lower portion of the pot, souring of the soil
is prevented and the growth of strong, vigorous
plants is promoted.
It is believed that the many advantages of a
20 ?ower and plant container constructed in ac
cordance with the present invention will be read
ily understood and although a preferred embodiment of the device is as illustrated and described,
