These grow pots have no base, so can be nestled into your top soil in the bed or border and then filled with compost and planted up. They are ideal for plants that like a warmer rootball and are useful for keeping fruits such as strawberries or courgettes off the ground.

Using a combination of different sizes and heights of grow pots together in groups will lift and expose specific plants creating points of detail and interest.

Make sure that you push or dig the pots in at least 70mm into the soil so that the roots of the plant will be able to draw moisture up from the surrounding area once the plant has matured. Copper tape can be wrapped around the grow pots to help prevent snail and slug damage to the potted plants.

Each pot is fired to 1080 degrees C to make it as frost resistant as possible; however we would always suggest moving it to a sheltered spot 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.

Measurements:
Short - H24cm x Ø26cm (top) / Ø14cm (base)
Tall - H40cm x Ø30cm (top)

Very useful but pricey for the size

I bought one of these for growing peas in, in my veg bed. The big bonus is you can put copper tape around the pot to protect the seedlings from slug. And because the pot has no bottom they are less reliant on being watered than a normal pot. I buried the bottom third of the pot in the soil, which meant I needed less compost than I would otherwise, and to make the pot stable. They are nice looking pots and the peas are doing very well. However the pot is on the small side. I would have liked another to grow a courgette in, but I think there is insufficient space for the roots. For the price, I would hope to have a somewhat larger pot. They would look great for trailing plants like nasturtiums.

Fit for purpose

Unfortunately one of the two pots was broken following the recent storms; but ignoring this expensive calamity the pots are very useful additions in the vegetable plot.

Brilliant for 'wrong type of soil'

I am using it to grow rosemary in my 'productive' bed, which includes fruit, veg and herbs. The pot (which arrived amazingly well packaged in eco-friendly packaging) will allow me to grow a mediterranean herb in a clay soil environment. I have also bought a low sized pot in which I am growing thyme.

Excellent piece of equipment,and decorative too. Have used mine to raise the courgette plant so they are no longer sitting on the soil and going mouldy or mildewy because of the damp. can also water easily inside the pot to get the water directly to that particular plants roots

Please could you tell me the diameter of the bottom of the Terracotta grow pot, as I want to use it to cover an ugly pipe. Could you also let me know the measurements of the large, and when that is likely to be back in stock? Again, it's actually the diameter of the base that's important to me.

KP

Hi there, the base of this pot is 14cm in diameter. Unfortunately we can't measure the large as it is out of stock, but we are expecting more in the next few weeks.

further to my previous question and your reply: If I were to remove the growpot in the winter, once summer flowers/veg have finished, do you think that would be ok for bulbs underneath like snowdrops/daffs?

Hello, I'm afraid, I don't really think that would work either as you will still be changing the soil level for several months of the year.

Does anyone have any idea about the pros and cons of putting one of these on top of bulbs such as snowdrops or daffa that have died down? Would be a good use of space if viable!

squirrelnutkin

Hello, Most plants really dislike having the soil level around them altered in any way, so I would advise against using these above bulbs.
