Gardener Fern from Life On the Balcony Finds Stylish Plant Holders for Gardens of All Sizes
Here are some of my favorite pots and planters that do more than just provide a place for your plants to grow. They are especially stylish, some are made out of recycled materials, while others use clever design to solve a problem. — Fern from Life on the Balcony
These soft-sided wall-planters are made from recycled water bottles, so you can feel extra good about buying them. They come in several colors and sizes. Growing vertically is a great way to use your space wisely.
Aren't these cute? The come in several modern colors. If you always forget to water your houseplants, self-watering pots are the way to go. As an added benefit, they won't drip all over your floors!
This is such a clever way to expand your garden space without sacrificing modern style. I love that it comes in multiple fun colors. Great for dressing up balcony railings or a boring fence.
This is another great self-watering pot. You can use them indoors or outdoors, but I prefer to use them indoors to get the full benefit of the drip free system. Though, if water dripping on your patio or balcony is a problem for you outdoors as well, these are a great choice.
Terrariums and air plants (tillandsia) are super hot right now in the gardening world. I love that these terrariums are made from recycled glass, as that gives them an eco-friendly bent too.
If you need to move your planters around easily, this is a great option as the Garden365 comes with wheels attached. The wheels also raise it off of your deck or patio, which will help prevent rotting and staining of the wood.
This planter is a real piece of art!
Succulents look fabulous in this pot! The bright color and indestructible material make it a great choice.
This is such a great deal on a faux bois pot! It looks as if it has been sitting in a secret garden for decades. Use indoor as a cache pot for orchids or in the garden with your other pots.
Use this orb form to create a plant masterpiece to hang from the ceiling or in your patio. The form is made from sphagnum moss and has a metal hook attached. Fill it with your succulent cuttings or other low-water plants for a neat, unique piece of garden art.
This is a clever and easy way to grow your own potatoes. Even if you have no garden at all, surely you have a few square feet in which to place this potato condo and start harvesting your own delicious heirloom/unusual/colorful potatoes.
These pots are such a neat way to grow hanging plants!
This is pretty handy for those with little space. In the footprint of one pot, you can grow half a dozen different herbs.
While I'm not a fan of the Topsy Turvy for tomatoes, it works really well for strawberries!
