This weekend I managed to fry not just one but both of my houseplants. These losses were particularly tough because I’d managed to keep both of my begonias alive for the better part of two years, which is no small feat for me. But I refuse to give in so easily, so I’m heading to the garden center today to find some newbies for my kitchen windowsill. Hopefully these guys will be a bit heartier than my dearly departed friends. And since I’m planning a new plant purchase…it seems like the perfect time to pick up a new planter or two*. These pinched and glazed planters by Brooklyn-based ceramicist Kevin Wilcoxson have such an interesting shape and come in three different glaze colors (yellow, aqua, dark teal). They’d be so sweet for succulents, but I’d like to try something that trails in these. They’d be great hanging from up high. Just be sure you line the bottom with rocks if you need to water frequently, these don’t appear to have drainage holes. Click here to check them out in more detail and order online ($40 each). xo, grace
*I feel like one day when I’m no longer around, someone will go through my things and assume I ran some sort of overgrown nursery. I’m pretty sure I have enough planters and vessels to pot just about every spare plant in New York City.
