There have never been a better variety of containers to show off plants and flowers. It is just the question of knowing which works best with what.
Cube with geometric openings. Good for: a lily or cactus. Tip: line with moss and use an inner container.
Terra cotta covered with vintage porcelain pieces. Good for: something simple. Tip: plant no more than three to four bulbs in the pot.
Black metal pot with holes. Good for: tiny creepers, which will entwine themselves in the holes. Tip: weave the plant through the holes to speed the process.
Hand-painted terra cotta. Good for: Any small plant. Tip: To protect the hand painting, use an inner container.
Painted glazed ceramic with side air vents. Good for: an orchid (for the roots to breathe). Tip: line with coconut fibre first.
Rectangular clay pot. Good for: herbs or lawn grass. Tip: Trim grass evenly for an architectural effect.
Clover-shaped pot. Good for: table roses. Tip: choose several shades of a single plant variety and group together.
