Always handle our pots with care, as with all ceramics, our items are breakable. Gravity is the arch enemy of ceramics! We recommend using a saucer or coaster to avoid watermarks on furniture and other surfaces. The majority of our pots will fit a standard size plastic grow pot. This makes watering easy - just remove the plastic grow pot, water the plant in the sink, allow to drain completely and then replace in the ceramic pot. This avoids water sitting in the planter and damaging the ceramic, plus avoids root rot from over watering.
Our range of metal garden art is hand finished and hand painted. A lot of our products have a naturally rusty look which weathers well. We suggest a coat of clear polyurethane or silicone spray in matt or gloss finish to protect the metal and colours of the painted finish from the Australian weather.
