Our Pick of Unusual Planters

Tuesday, 07 June 2016

Planters are a great way to add colour and panache to any garden, however big or small. They can also help to deal with all sorts of issues including soil quality, pests, access. But a planter need not be as simple as just a run-of-the-mill pot that you see at the garden centre. From floating planters to upside down pots and even planters that send messages to your smart phone, we have some of the latest, coolest ways to garden…

The Sky Planter

Growing plants upside down – awesome!

The LYFE planter

We SO want one of these. LYFE is a zero-gravity growing system allowing you to cultivate your favourite plants in mid-air. Yup, mid air! They are designed in Sweden and use magnetic levitation to literally hover in mid-air. They are currently raising funds through Kickstarter…

The Foody

We are currently trialling this revolutionary growing system which allows you to grow fruit, veg and flowers in a limited space using 90% less water than traditional growing methods. It is very stylish too and will look great on a patio, deck or balcony.

Plug & Plant

This is a stylish new interconnecting system which you can plant up for culinary or decorative purposes. Create a wonderful vertical garden in your kitchen with year round access to fresh herbs. Maybe have a flower wall in your living room. Or add it to your fence to create a green wall outside. The Plug & Plant even has a sensor which will send a message to your smartphone to tell you when it needs watered! Impressive!
