Planters for Any Garden
Picking the right container is the first step toward helping your garden grow.
Glazed Ceramic Planters
The Genuine ArticleGood-looking enough to go indoors, glazed ceramic pots often come in bright colors, which provide the perfect accent for subtly hued leaves. The porous material lets roots breathe, while the glazed finish conserves moisture. This Vietnamese glazed ceramic container (shown, far left), which stands only 12 inches tall, weighs about 20 pounds empty. (Unfortunately, this container is no longer available.)
The Flattering ImitationThe 16-inch-tall Provence Planter (shown, left), a 2½-pound polypropylene look-alike from Gardener’s Supply, is a fine option for someone who wants to move plants around. (Unfortunately, this container is no longer available.)
Experts SayThe fake fooled four out of five experts―and the fifth wavered. “This fake is convincing, especially when it's filled,” says Naomi Blumenthal, a garden designer in Alford, Massachusetts.
