If you don't want to your plants to perish or become dormant after becoming subjected to extreme weather conditions, you can always rely on planters. They are convenient and versatile and you can transfer inside at any time.

Rome’s First Water Delivery Solutions

Rome’s First Water Delivery Solutions Aqua Anio Vetus, the first raised aqueduct built in Rome, commenced supplying the many people living in the hills with water in 273 BC, though they had counted on natural springs up till then. When aqueducts or springs weren’t easily accessible, people dwelling at greater elevations turned to water pulled from underground or rainwater, which was made possible by wells and cisterns. From the beginning of the sixteenth century, water was routed to Pincian Hill via the underground channel of Acqua Vergine. Pozzi, or manholes, were engineered at regular intervals along the aqueduct’s channel. While these manholes were provided to make it less difficult to manage the aqueduct, it was also possible to use buckets to extract water from the channel, which was utilized by Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi from the time he invested in the property in 1543 to his death in 1552. Reportedly, the rainwater cistern on his property wasn’t sufficient to satisfy his needs. To give himself with a more streamlined system to assemble water, he had one of the manholes exposed, giving him access to the aqueduct below his property.
