Trendy Pots & Planters

Stay ahead of the curve with these popular trends in pots and planters:

  • Hanging Baskets: Perfect for adding vertical interest to your garden, hanging baskets are a timeless trend that continues to captivate gardeners. Fill them with trailing plants like petunias or ivy for a stunning display.
  • Wheeled Platforms: Mobility is key, especially for larger pots and planters. Wheeled platforms allow you to easily move your plants around to catch the sun or create dynamic arrangements.

Best materials for full sun and winter hardy pots

Choosing the right material for your pots is essential for their longevity and the health of your plants. For pots that can withstand full sun exposure, consider materials like:

  • Terracotta: Terracotta pots are durable and porous, allowing for good drainage and air circulation. They're perfect for plants that love full sun, such as succulents, lavender, and rosemary.
  • Fibreglass: Fibreglass pots are lightweight yet sturdy, making them an excellent choice for sunny spots. They're also frost-resistant, making them suitable for year-round use. Pair them with hardy plants like yuccas, agapanthus, or sedums.
  • Metal: Metal pots, such as those made from aluminium or galvanised steel, can withstand the heat of full sun and are also rust-resistant. Use them to showcase sun-loving plants like ornamental grasses, salvias, or cannas.

For winter-hardy pots that can withstand frost and cold temperatures, consider materials like:

  • Stone: Stone pots, such as those made from granite or limestone, are naturally frost-resistant and can withstand extreme weather conditions. They're perfect for planting winter-hardy shrubs like hebes, skimmias, or hellebores.
  • Resin: Resin pots are lightweight and durable, making them an excellent choice for winter gardening. They're also available in a variety of styles and finishes to suit any aesthetic. Plant them with cold-hardy perennials like winter pansies, cyclamen, or ornamental kale.
