Plant gifts by planter

When pairing pots with plants, scale, repetition, form, texture, colour and habit are all considerations in the creation of a perfectly paired pot.  We may choose to contrast or combine similar colour and texture attributes, create repetition with patterning and plant form or stand alone living sculptures (succulent bonsai) dictated by the form and habit of the plant. And so it goes, each pot presents an exciting challenge.
