Mud Mountain featuring in House & Garden

Welcome to Mud Mountain

Terracotta Pots & Planters 

Established in 2007 and with a reputation that has gone from strength to strength, Mud Mountain has grown to become one of the leading importers of Italian terracotta vases, olive jars, and urns, offering a specialist range of hand-made Tuscan pots not available from most traditional garden centers and retailers.

With over 25 years of experience dealing with potteries worldwide, we have used this expertise to source a high-quality garden terracotta range to bring to the British market. Having appreciated, in particular, the quality of Italian terracotta and admired the skillful artisan potters at work, our business now exclusively deals with the Italians. 

A little about us

We select our specialist 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 even the harshest climatic conditions.

Slow growing & dwarf varieties of trees are ideal for container planting. Popular tree planters feature below and read our blog on selecting the best pot for your plant for top tips.

Fantastic selection, service and delivery! I was so happy to find Mud Mountain online. I ordered over a weekend and had a quote by Monday and a delivery to Surrey (including placement) Wednesday. Very happy with the product.
