Beautifully proportioned pots that are wider than they are tall, which lend themselves particularly well to mixed planting schemes. Pack with seasonal bedding, herbs or alpine plants to create striking statement pieces for the garden or patio.

Though inspired by the terraces of Tuscany, the pots are thrown in Turkey by Argun and his son, 3rd and 4th generation potters from the Izmir region on the Aegean coast. Made using local clay, the pots will age to a wonderful patina as the salts slowly leach to the surface.

Each pot is fired to 1080 degrees C to make it as frost resistant as possible; however to be extra safe we would always recommend moving pots into a sheltered spot for protection in the colder months.

As they are individually thrown by hand, the pots will vary slightly in height and diameter from batch to batch, so please be aware the measurements below are approximate. Supplied with drainage holes.

Please note: to aid drainage and improve frost protection, we recommend using pot feet to raise the pot off the ground.

Heavy, good quality pot

5

I've bought several pots from crocus and I think in each case what arrived was somewhat different from what was pictured, but always similar enough and just as good. I don't really see this as a negative, because I've always been happy with the variations, but if you might if you're very particular. In any case the quality is consistently excellent.

This pot was bought as a special birthday present. The recipient has reported to me that it withstood the winter well and looks beautiful.

I have two. They look great and - unlike many terracotta pots - stand up to freezing weather brilliantly.

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

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

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?

Sanna Sandholm

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.

Plant up summer containers

After the last frost date, plant up containers with tender flowering bedding and reliable foliage plants. Line terracotta pots with polythene, taking care not to cover the planting holes, to reduce water loss through the porous sides of the pot.
