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!
1. On The Side
These concrete composite pots come in four designs and in multiple sizes suitable for indoor and out. We love the raw concrete finish.
2. Pop & Scott
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!
I know we said pots but these hanging versions definitely needed to be added to the list! This knotted plant pod is available in a range of colours and is a great alternative to planting when you are in a small space.
5. Atelier Vierkant
These hand carved and hand sculptured pots are gorgeous – they could be used without plants as a sculptural feature in any landscape design. Originating in Belgium these are pots that will last a lifetime.
6. Mr Kitly
Based in Brunswick, Mr Kitly stocks a fantastic range of handmade ceramic planters. We like this large angled Anchor planter. They also stock plant stands and to die for copper garden tools. Check out his website in the links below.
