Beautifully proportioned pots that are wider than they are tall, which lend themselves particularly well to mixed planting schemes. They look especially good when crammed full of seasonal bedding, herbs or alpine plants that are allowed to spill out over their angular sides. The striking shape and classic good looks, makes them statement pieces that will create beautiful focal points for either the garden or patio. Available in two sizes.

Medium 30cm high x 45cm diameter
Large 42cm high x 60cm diameter

Terracotta Pot Size Guide

We think these classic, unfussy designs work best in an English garden. Although the inspiration came from Tuscany, the pots have been made in Turkey. They are hand thrown (sometimes from 2 pieces of clay for the larger pots) by Argun and his son who are the 3rd and 4th generation of potters from the Izmir region on the Aegean coast. The clay from this area ages to a lovely patina, as the salts slowly leach to the surface.

Each pot is fired to 1080 degrees C (to make it as frost proof as possible) and has an extra large drainage hole in the base.

Available in more than one size. All sizes sold separately.

    Salix for growing in pots

    Hello I am thinking of ordering two Salix caprea 'Kilmarnock' which I plan to keep in pots. I know they arrive in 5 litre pots but should I transfer them to a larger ones? If so, could you tell me to what size pots and when I should do it. Many thanks Helen

      Hello Helen, They will need to be potted up as soon as possible into larger pots. I would aim for something at least 40 x 40cm and fill it with John Innes No 2 compost. You can do this at any time as long as the ground isn't frozen. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

  • Q:

    Growing Leucothoe in chalk soil?

    Hello, I was wondering if you could help me please, I want to buy a Leucothoe, but I believe they need acid soil, unfortunately we live in Salisbury which is quite chalky. Could we dig a big hole, line it with thick black plastic, make holes in the bottom, fill it with ericaceous soil and keep it well watered, would that work I wonder? I would be very grateful of your advice. Many thanks Sheila

      Hello Sheila, I'm afraid this does not sound ideal, and I would not recommend it as a long term option. You could however try growing it in a really large pot filled with ericaceous compost and leave it on your patio. I'm sorry not to be more help. Helen Plant Doctor

  • Q:

    Container size for my Acer...

    I'm interested in buying two specimens of the Japanese Maple - Acer palmatum var. dissectum to be planted in containers on my patio. I just wonder what container/pot size I should be looking at?

      As these plants are around 30cm tall in a 2 or 3lt pot, I would recommend you pot it up into something at least 30 x 30cm. You could go for a larger pot, but the plant will look a little lost in it until it has had a chance to grow on.
