IMPROVEMENT IN FLOWER-POTS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 165,000., dated J one 29, 1875; application filed March 20, 1875.
To all whom it may concern Beit known that I, J 0E SEPHUs J OHNSON, of Somerville, Fayette county, Tennessee, have Improvement in Flower-Pots, of which the followingis aspecification Figure 1 is a top view of my improved flower-pot. Fig. 2 is a vertical section of the same.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
The invention will first be fully described, and then pointed out in the claim.
A is the upper part of the flower-pot, in
i which the earth is placed to receive the plants.
B is the lower part of the flower-pot, which is" formed below, and in one piece with, the upper part A. The part B is made a little wider than the lower part of the part A; and in the shoulder thus formed is a hole, a through which water or any liquid fertilizer may be poured, and which is closed bya cock or other 1 suitable stopper. In the bottom of the earthchamber A of the flower-pot are formed a number of small holes, a), through which the vapor of the water in the lower or water chamber B,
as it is formed by the evaporation of said water, may pass to keep the earth in the earthchamber moist.
The holes a may be covered with a sponge or piece of cloth to prevent the fine earth from passing through them into the-water-chamber B, or from clogging said holes.
With this construction the earth will be kept properly and uniformly moist, and will not be soaked or leached, as it is liable to be when the plants are watered by pouring water upon
