Planters by Size
Cultivate an indoor garden with pots of every shape and size. Indoor planters are typically lighter than outdoor pots, so they’re easy to move around the house for greenery in every season and space. Since indoor planters come in a wide array of styles and finishes, you can create a tabletop grouping of mix-and-match pots filled with plants of different heights. Plant stands and hanging planters are another great way to add personality around the house.
Every plant needs drainage to stay healthy and beautiful, so decorative containers must also drain water. Pots with built-in drainage holes need to be paired with a saucer to catch water overflow. When choosing saucers, consider mixing and matching different styles with your planters. Pots without drainage holes are called cachepots. They’re ornamental only, and are meant to hold a drop-in plant with its own pot.
When it comes to outdoor planters, bigger is better. Weighty planters can stand up to the elements, and make a bold statement in the garden. Try a decorative urn for tall plants, or a low bowl with a distinctive rim for a grouping of smaller specimens. For outdoor settings, planters with a weathered patina are the perfect choice; they will continue to change over time, adding new life to your garden each year. At the front of your home, a display of hanging baskets made from rattan, zinc or weathered metal is a tried-and-true accent that can be replanted each season for a fresh look.
Outdoor planters are a beautiful way to accent the character of your home. Beautifully rustic, they contrast with bright flowers and complement earthy greens in a formal garden or a simple patio setting.
