Self Watering Planter by Joey Roth

Holiday travel is booked, you’re wrapping up at work, and all is set for you to head off to family/friends for the upcoming break. It’s only at the last minute where you have a minor freak-out wondering who is going to water your plants. Instead of bribing your friend or neighbor, maybe get this self watering planter by Joey Roth. The planter’s earthenware central chamber allows water to slowly seep into the soil as the plant absorbs only what it needs. The planter is inspired by the Olla, an ancient irrigation tool used in arid climates.

Fermob Planter Baskets

Fermob has plenty of practical outdoor furnishings, but these Planter Baskets are particularly perfect for a patio. Why? Well, the handles, of course.

The baskets are available in a plethora of colors, several of which are sure to suit your fancy.

Kaenjusai Watering Can

Will a pretty watering can make your houseplants happy? Probably, but it will be because you’re happy watering them with the Kaenjusai Watering Can by designer Keita Suzuki. See the matching angle of the handle and spout? That will give you a precise “point-and-pour control” to ensure less spillage. A walnut handle compliments the copper body.

GrowOya Watering Vessel

Did you know that surface watering is inefficient? Plants do best when they get water right at their roots. That’s just where the GrowOya aims, as it’s a terracotta vessel that’s buried mostly underground. Fill it every few days and water will naturally seep into the soil so roots can take just the right amount. You’ll be saving water and time- score!

Power Planters by Chen Chen & Kai Williams

Do you love these Power Planters by Chen Chen & Kai Williams because their own saucers are integrated into the design or because they remind you of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man’s legs? In either case, they’re excellent options for holding your green, leafy friends, as they’ll catch extra water and dirt without being completely (and often horribly) obvious like the alternatives.

Menu Grow Pot with Wooden Board

More plant-related paraphernalia for you, but this time the item on show is specifically for the herbs or flowers kept indoors on a windowsill. Set off by an oak plank base, the dark terra cotta planter pot will contrast nicely with a small bouquet or your favorite herbs or sprouts without disrupting the clean/minimal vibe you’ve got going on in the rest of your house. Set your Japanese garden scissors (or other elegant clippers) beside the pot for easy trimming and a casual oh-I-use-fresh-herbs-so-often-I-need-scissors-out-all-the-time sort of look.

Sophie Conran Garden Tools

How about we get a head start on spring gardening? Being in the market for garden tools myself, I’ve noticed quite a bit of ‘stylish’ garden tools with bright colors and patterns. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but if we’re cut from the same sort of cloth, you might just appreciate the no nonsense approach of stainless steel, solid brass ferrules, and natural beech wood handles of these garden tools. Plus, the Hand Rake is notable in that the springy tines are designed to avoid damaging new shoots while gathering leaves.

Deuce Pitcher/Watering Can

Another weird watering can? Of course! And, even better, this one could also be a carafe, if you should so desire, as one spout is for plants and the other for pouring drinks. Use the long spout as a handle when filling your glass, or, alternatively, grasp the 1 1/4 liter body to water plants. This double function will let you donate any other watering cans and carafes that are cluttering up your cabinets while also delighting in your ability to find such well-designed containers. Go ahead, pat yourself on the back.

Grow Greenhouse

Anything that will help keep plants alive is pretty much a must-have, but this Grow Greenhouse has me itching to buy multiples. Two handmade glass parts combine to create a small nursery for beginning plants. A small valve on the top dome allows for air and moisture regulation, and a spout on the dome’s edge allows you to use it for watering. Smart, isn’t it?

Linear Box Planter

We all know that simple, clean-cut planters aren’t abundant at the local plant nurseries. That’s probably why every time we run across one it’s a mad dash to see how much it is, what colors it comes in, and quick! buy it before someone else snatches it up. So, sure, we’re into the Linear Box Planter. Skinny, square legs, and a simple rectangular box, what’s not to like? It’s worth noting that the plywood box has an open bottom, with what looks like a metal cross bar for supporting your own pots in their not-so-pretty plastic.

Svante Watering Can

Who wants a funny looking watering can? We do, we do! Because then we will never forget to water the plants, and it can double as a vase when not in use. Broberg & Ridderstråle’s watering can is made of brass with two odd-shaped spouts- one flared spout for filling and one skinny spout for pouring. The care of design and choice of materials makes this watering can one to hold on to, and maybe even pass down to your offspring (or your other favorite young friends).
