Josephine Ceramic Watering Pot

I don’t know how many of you care to accessorize your watering pot as you do your outfit, but if it would make you happy, more power to you.

“An art object that deserves as much a spotlight as those blooming buds, each Josephine comes with three pre-selected lids – one in the same shade as the pot, one in white, and another in contrasting color. The saturated color and unique shape provide a graphic statement on any plant shelf – or even alone.”

Living Wall Planters

These are sort of bizarre–The raw white cedar is probably better suited in an industrial/loft environment than a regular residential application, but it would have a great impact in a large space.

Fresh Herb Pot by Sagaform

“Scandinavian in its simple, unadorned and practical design, this ceramic pot from Sagaform is an ingenious way of enjoying fresh herbs much like flowers: Insert a bunch in the enlarged opening, and keep hydrated by pouring water into the corner hole. The broad base ensures that all those little stalks have access to water, while allowing air to circulate so herbs keep from becoming limp and waterlogged. Easy to take apart for cleaning. And at this price, you can buy several and surround yourself with the scent of freshly cut herbs.”

Teracrea- Treille by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

The Bouroullec brothers have done it again- yet another product that is impressive in its unusual approach (and solution) to a rather interesting objective.

“Teracrea was set up in 2002 based on an idea of the two founder partners, Mauro Canfori and Emanuela Destro, with the objective of creating a family of products designed to introduce greenery into internal architecture and offer new solutions to traditional pots for outdoor plants. In light of this, a number of important designers were asked to interpret and explore the concept of ‘greenery as a means of organizing the space around it’.
Treille is a system of cylindrical vases horizontally aligned and connected by gray-green nylon belts and adjustable lacquered metal braces. The pre-assembled set hangs from a ceiling or woodwork. The greenery planted in the vases finds an easy support to grow vertically in either direction. Hanging brackets are included.”

Size: 27.5″ L x 86.6″ H
Weight: 19.8 lbs.

This may or may not be your cup of tea, but you have to agree it’s somewhat humorous. Might be a good gift perhaps (if you’ve got the cash, that is)…

Message Beans

While I’m a bit in wonder as to what the text actually looks like, it seems like a particularly good way to say something ordinary in a unique way.

“go way beyond greeting cards with these unique plants.
so what is a message bean? it’s an ordinary bean, carefully laser etched in such a way that when the bean germinates and sprouts into a small plant ( this usually takes 1 – 2 weeks ), the bean itself will read ‘happy birthday’ or ‘thank you’. each bean comes ready to grow in it’s own canister, which doubles as a planter ( although you could re-plant it anywhere you like ). it includes soil as well, so all you have to do is add water. the end result is a very affordable ‘card’ that won’t soon be forgotten by anyone who receives it.”

‘happy birthday’ and ‘thank you’ available.

These planters are such a nice price (comparably) for decently modernish design.

“Simple, modern earthenware forms need no embellishment outside of a cultivar orchid green or a neutral prairie-style brown. Dipped inside/out glaze seals it 100% waterproof so plants can go saucer-less.”

Waterproof; no drainage hole

I saw this a while ago in someone’s coverage of the Milan Housewares Fair, and I recently ran across it on a retail site where it’s available to purchase. It’s a great simple design that makes use of all those plastic bottles…

“Twist & Spout fits virtually any soda or water bottle with a screw-on cap. Use the Garden style to create an instant watering can. Use the Kitchen style to make those big two-liter soda bottles easy to handle…”

Garden spouts are available individually in blue and green or as a set containing
