Pot Culture


Yes, French, Italian and Spanish antique terra cotta pots are fabulous, the bigger the better. But why not also plant dozens of smaller pots?





They can be moved to wherever they are needed the most. Place them in an optimum, for growth, location and then move them around. Maybe to a small side table when serving brunch. Maybe next to the champagne bucket. Maybe up a flight of stairs. Maybe grouped, en masse, by the front door. You get the idea.




They don't all have to be in terra cotta pots. See the old wooden stump, or the aged cement urn? But, please, don't plant your flowers into plastic pots.

  2. Hi Lala, I knew that you would get the idea immediately. I remember so many beautiful terra cotta pots, large and small in every nook and corner of Spain. It is a most charming tradition.
