Large Terracotta Pots, Planters & Olive Jars Handmade in Italy.
We select our specialst range of large terracotta pots and planters from the Artisan Potteries of Tuscany. They are all hand made by Master Potters, using traditional methods and skills handed down over many generations. The terracotta pots we stock are made using Galestro clay, a high quality raw material found only in a small area of Tuscany. A very dense and viscous clay, Galestro is hard to work but terracotta pots made with it are of very high quality and frost resistant to -20°C with proper care.
These classical designs sit well in many different garden styles; mediterranean, terrace, courtyard or English country garden. They are ideally suited to large Olive trees, Bay and Box but also look stunning planted with flowering shrubs, fruit trees, bedding plants or bulbs.
