A Plantability of Pots
I’ve been talking a lot about pots lately I know, but at this time of year they’re regularly on my making list. Just knowing that they’ll be topped up with soil, carefully planted and contain a captivating growing display, means they are a joy to make.
These ones are solid and rustic, the stone really does the talking here. This small group of oval, D-shape, square and oblong planters have a simple, honest finish where the natural texture of the stone is centre-stage. They’re a really useful size for planting up for spring colour, the oval one especially I think would look lovely filled with miniature tulips.
Today I’ve been drilling holes in them for drainage and doing final fettling. The wavy colour band running through them has pleased me.
I guessed at ‘Plantability’, any suggestions as to what the collective term for pots is?
A few of these rustic stone planters will come with me to the Gardens Illustrated Festival.
