Suggested For You


  • I just started thinking about what to do in my back yard yesterday. The dogs rip up anything that is planted in the ground, so I’ll definitely be employing lots of planters. Thanks for all the great ideas!

  • I love these lists, but it is a bit hard to match the info with the pictures – maybe you could number them?
    The owl planter is adorable, my favourite.

  • Has anyone tried the hangingtomato.com? I’m curious, but wary of anything sold on TV. It isn’t cute like the planters above, but would be great at keeping the bugs out of stuff.

  • Maybe I missed it, but is there a link for the planter with the open metal pattern, distressed white finish? Thanks!

  • So excited about the IKEA hanging planters! My fiance has plants (that he is VERY attached to) hanging in our living room in their original green plastic planters- complete with barcodes. ICK! These are a perfect replacement.

  • Bullet planter is on $100 w/o the base. Getting the stand tacks on another $60-70 or so. I had been looking at this particular bullet planter for a looooong time now but it was just too big for my place. I recently found a guy on eBay who makes a smaller version (about 9″ in wide radius, the bullet planter featured here is 15.75″ wide radius) and they tend to go for around $60 at highest bid. I recently won one and am awaiting its arrival.

  • Has anyone ever bought an architectural pottery stand and found a ceramic planter to fit that isn’t $300 +?

  • Grace, it looks like there is a missing link in the first batch? (For the wooden planter contained in a wire basket?)

    Thank you!
