Terra cotta or clay pots are a wonderful container choice, especially for herbs, geraniums on the windowsill, houseplants, orchids, and top heavy plants such as Amaryllis.
Terra cotta allows the roots of the plants to breathe as oxygen flows freely through the pores of the natural clay.
Lately, as plastic pots have flooded the market, clay pots have been harder and harder to find. Despite their weight and the need to empty them and protect them during the winter months, many customers continue to seek out these old fashioned, wonderful containers for their plants. At Natureworks, we are proud to offer a wide selection of clay pots and other containers such as strawberry jars, urns, low bowls, bulb pans, and orchid pots. Call us old fashioned, but we feel that clay pots will NEVER go out of style.
Many clay pots are still made in the United States and Natureworks strives to buy American made pottery whenever possible. We also offer high quality terra cotta pots imported from Italy, as well as Mexican pottery of all types. Clay comes from the earth and has been crafted by man to hold plants and other materials for centuries. This natural substance continues to pair beautifully with the plants that we sell at Natureworks.
