This sturdy terracotta planter has been designed to suit both herbs and bedding plants. Six 5.5cm planting holes allow planting of several varieties and let air circulate to protect against rot, disease and pests, while the wide neck provides extra planting space up top.

Although the inspiration came from Tuscany, these pots are made in Turkey; each one hand thrown by Argun and his son, 3rd and 4th generation potters from Izmir on the Aegean coast. The local clay ages to a beautiful natural patina as the salts slowly leach to the surface.

Each pot is fired to 1080°C to render it as frost resistant as possible, but we would always suggest moving pots into a sheltered spot in the colder months for extra protection.

To keep your pot in tip-top condition please read our ‘Assembly and care instructions’ PDF for more detailed advice.

Includes large drainage hole in the base. We recommend using pot feet to aid drainage and improve frost resistance.

Please note: as each pot is thrown by hand, there will be slight variations in height and diameter from batch to batch.

Any white specks in the terracotta are lime granules, which occur naturally in raw Turkish clay. Occasionally when a pot is fired, the clay around them can split out a little, but this does not compromise the strength of the pot in any way. The presence of lime helps to bind the clay and ultimately makes for a stronger pot.
