Ceramic & Terracotta Pots

Terracotta and ceramic are two of the most common planter materials around. While they have a lot in common, they do have specific differences that make certain plants better suited to one or the other.

We have a versatile and traditional range of ceramic and terracotta pots, with everything from the newest range of colours and styles to the old timeless classics. Contemporary designs that are lightweight, strong and durable. Ideal for a wide range of garden decors, completing every outdoor setting.

Terracotta Pots

Earthy, rustic plants such as herbs, grasses, Australian natives and Mediterranean plants like geraniums, olives and citrus look fantastic in terracotta. Terracotta pots are favoured among garden enthusiasts as the clay texture allows air and moisture to flow more freely.

The reasons someone might not choose a terracotta planter are the same reasons someone else might need one; they’re made from a porous material, which means they let more moisture and more air pass through, and they come with at least one big drainage hole in the bottom. 

Ceramic Pots

At a glance, you may think a ceramic pot is simply a terracotta pot with a good paint job. However, ceramic pots are typically glazed with a coat of lacquer that prevents the soil from drying out at the same speed as it would in an unglazed clay or terracotta planter. 

The best houseplants for ceramic pots are ones that prefer evenly moist soil—generally, ones that have adapted from damper environments in nature.

One huge advantage ceramics have over terracotta is their appearance. Compared to all the beautiful colours, patterns, and styles you can find in ceramic, terracotta can seem a little dull in comparison.
