Pot the Difference

When we first started potting up plants to put them on our bedside table, in the bathroom, in the kitchen, then throughout the living room, on top of the TV, by the front door, by the back door and… we quickly realised we were obsessed with pots.

The potential for the humble pot is limitless. Most people start with the basic terracotta pot – a plant-lovers little black dress; versatile, affordable, timeless. But pots have made a serious renaissance and now you can your own look using pots of all different, shapes, colours and sizes. Check out our favourite pot styles getting around right now:
