I was asked to review the Stewart Garden Essential Planter a couple of months ago and I was told that they look great with tulips in. I agreed to do the review and pithily replied that I would do it before the tulips were flowering......... well, not all the tulips are quite flowering yet. I will explain the delay...
The pots come in three sizes: 27cm / 33cm / 39cm and in ten colours. The website says they are long lasting, shock-proof and UV resistant. I can agree they are shock resistant, this pot was blown off the table a couple of times in recent storms and is unblemished. The clay pots that went in the same direction did not survive at all.
They are also very lightweight. I know that some of you will read this and say that plant pots should not be plastic. I own many fine ceramic pots and I love them dearly, but increasingly I am finding them to be heavy. These plastic pots look good and are light, this makes moving them around so much easier.
They are also fairly inexpensive, priced between £3 ish to £5 ish. For a decorative planter I think this is good value. I think I have been won over to plastic.
