Most plants will grow quite happily in containers and you can make just as fabulous a display using plants in containers as you can in the garden - great news if you're short on outdoor space. In our garden centre in Emersons Green you'll find a container for every plant: just match your plants to the pot that suits them best for instant success.

Different types of containers

  • Pots come in a huge range of styles and materials from ceramic to terracotta, stainless steel and stone. Let your imagination run riot creating mixed displays of perennials and shrubs in larger pots for instant impact.

  • Troughs and grow spaces work brilliantly for growing vegetables on the patio. Place troughs against a wall to grow climbing beans or divide a grow space as small as 1m x 1m into squares for planting a surprisingly wide variety of fruit and veg.

  • Hanging baskets brighten up the dingiest of entranceways with brilliant scarlet pelargoniums or, for something different, tumbling tomatoes or chillies. In our garden centre, you'll find not only the baskets but also liners and water-retaining gel to mix into the compost to hold on to moisture for longer.

Elevate Your Garden Aesthetics with Ceramic Pots from Elmwood

When it comes to choosing containers for your garden plants, ceramic pots stand out as a timeless and stylish choice. Elmwood Nursery & Garden Centre is delighted to offer a wide range of ceramic pots that can instantly enhance the beauty of your outdoor space.

Benefits of Ceramic Pots

  • Elegant Aesthetic: Ceramic pots exude elegance and charm. Their smooth, glazed surfaces and intricate designs can turn your garden into a work of art.
  • Durability: High-quality ceramic pots are built to withstand the elements. They are less likely to crack or fade compared to other materials, making them a long-lasting investment.
  • Excellent Insulation: Ceramic's natural insulation properties help regulate soil temperature, keeping your plants comfortable in both hot summers and chilly winters.
  • Variety of Styles: Elmwood offers a diverse selection of ceramic pots, allowing you to find the perfect match for your garden's theme and your personal style.

Creating a visually striking garden often involves experimenting with different colours of ceramic pots. Consider these tips:

  1. Contrast: Pair bold, contrasting colours to make your pots pop against the backdrop of green foliage.
  2. Monochromatic Elegance: Choose pots in varying shades of the same colour for a sophisticated, cohesive look.
  3. Natural Harmony: Use earthy tones like terracotta and moss green to blend seamlessly with the surrounding environment.

Ceramic pots offer a classic and inviting ambiance to your outdoor space. They provide a sense of refinement and can be used to create focal points or accents throughout your garden. Whether you prefer a traditional, Mediterranean, or modern aesthetic, ceramic pots can effortlessly adapt to your desired look and feel.
