I’ve been mentioning in past blogs the idea of pottery as a new component to any garden. As we have been getting more and more pottery in over the summer I have been toying with different ways to display pottery. One of the more original ideas I found was to put the pot on the ground and have the plant growing from underneath the pot. It is a terrific way to catch the attention of people walking, and while it is an altered way of displaying pottery, it still provides that extra dimension to the garden all summer long. I did this with both a blue and teal pot at the nursery. Aside from that, I’ve gone the more conventional route and planted annuals in many of the pots, which also is a great color contribution to the garden. I’ve also been experimenting with planting other plants in the pottery, aside from just annuals, like Japanese Maples, and conifers as well. It’s just another way to display the rare specimens you may have and treasure in your garden.
I recently posted multiple pictures of some of the pottery here at the nursery under the ‘Pottery’ section of the ‘Accessory’ tab at the top of the page. You will notice none of these pots have any prices listed; this is because at this point we are not shipping any pottery due to the fragileness of all of it. Aside from the pictures of the pottery that are posted, there are still many different varieties of pottery. We have tall pots, short pots, big pots, little pots, skinny pots, wide pots, square pots, round pots, pots that come in sets, and many more. The price range varies depending on the pot. The price also varies depending on if you want to buy a whole set or just a single pot.
With this being the first year that I’ve really been involved with pottery, I’m very pleased with the new dimension it is bringing to the trial gardens.
We couldn't be happier with the landscaping they designed and installed!
