Perfect Pots for Plants

No self-confessed interiors addict is without a plant or two (or several) around the home. Botanical and plant trends show no signs of slowing. Over the last two years, I’ve acquired a collection of plants and a permanent quest for good plant pots. In the post I wrote about plants for the bathroom, I mentioned some plain white ones from B&Q, Ikea also do some very affordable tin and white ceramic pots. Last week, I popped over to the opening of the new HomeSense store in Bristol and picked up a yellowish/cream kitchen dish which I’ve re-purposed for my string of pearls plant and an enamel jug which is now holding a succulent, plant pots don’t have to be conventional.

    You have sent me in plant heaven! Plants really change the feel of the home. Most of mine have enjoyed the summer outside actually. But I am looking forward to bringing them inside again and now seeing this as inspiration adding a few more on the way!

    Do you put the soil and plants directly into the pots or do you have smaller pots inside the ceramic pots that have no drainage holes? I have a nmber of pots I’d like to put plants into but they don’t have drainage hole so I was wondering if that’s ok or not, or how to deal with this.

      R, definitely a smaller pot with with drainage holes inside. No drainage holes and plants will get waterlogged and die (make sure that when you water, it’s just enough to run through the pot and out of the drainage holes, don’t let the plant sit in a pool of water). Hope that makes sense.

        Yes it does, thanks. I have all these pretty bowls and pots leftover from previous plants or demoted from the kitchen and it’s so tempting to just fill them with soil. But I’ll heed your advice and get some cheap pots with holes to put inside them.
