Going potty? Here’s 10 of the best.

Seeing as Spring is definitely in the air its time to get out in it and enjoy the sunshine. Pots are a great way to add maximum appeal with minimal effort. No matter what your garden ‘style’ may be, there is definitely a style out there for you!  Forget about the orange terracotta of the 80’s, we’re thinking concrete, ceramic and copper! Here are ten of our favourites –  suitable for indoor or outdoor garden design. All available in Melbourne. Get to it! Get planting!

Anyone who is a regular magazine junkie will recognise the work of this fabulous design studio in Northcote. Made from fibreglass and plaster making them very lightweight and easily moveable. These are recommended for indoor use to keep the beautiful hand painted finish pristine.

3. Fox & Ramona

Hand made in concrete by Melbourne potter Kristy Tull.  Variations in the texture, finish and size are what makes your bowl one of a kind. It comes in your choice of black or grey ‘White Wash’. It is fully sealed and has a low sheen, natural finish. Perfect for succulents or great to use as a bowl inside!

4. Smalltown
