They are so lovely. I am going to try to get rid of all my plastic pots this year. They are hopeless in our cold climate. We need the drainage and aeration that terracotta offers in the greenhouse. I could do with some tiny ones for seedlings.

Karen nurseries rarely use them but often they have some gathering dust under staging use your female charm and you might bag some for next to nothing, the older the better even if you have to soak them to clean.
Newer ones were only baked once older ones twice and much more frost resistant.
Old ones often have the finger marks of the potter in them.
Sorry Dotty I got a bit carried away on your patch.lol

What a good use for the box. I wish we had kept our grandparents wooden boxes now instead of using them to keep the fire going!!!

Fran the box with all the little terracotta pots in was bought from TK Maxx my OH planted them up with succulents and sempervivums.... does it Meanie? It is just your average sempervivum...
Thanks Hywel, I agree with you HB, such a waste!!

lol this is why I hate throwing anything away, "it might come in handy some day". Got so much stuff to recycle, once the wearther clears enough to let me work outside.

What a lovely way to present both pots and plants. I think there might be a lot of copy cats on GoY :)

If it was not ours, I would certainly be making one too!!
