Thought to be a Victorian innovation, slender lily pots allow bulbs to be planted deeply and grown on until ready to bloom. They can then be moved to a prominent spot, ready to burst into life.

These elegant Empoli lily pots are hand thrown in Turkey by Argun and his son, 3rd and 4th generation potters from the Izmir region on the Aegean coast. Made using local clay, the pots will age to a wonderful patina as the salts slowly leach to the surface.

Each pot is fired to 1080 degrees C to make it as frost resistant as possible; however we would always suggest moving empty or full pots into a sheltered spot in the colder months.

As they are individually thrown by hand, the pots will vary slightly in height and diameter from batch to batch, so please be aware the measurements below are approximate. Supplied with an extra-large drainage hole in the base.

Please note: to aid drainage and improve frost protection, we recommend using pot feet to raise the pot off the ground.

Measurements:
Small - Ø31cm x H41cm
Large - Ø42cm x H53cm
