It can be used in pairs and placed out side a front door in urban town houses, or either side of a patios doors, or conservatories. They would also look great at the end of pathway to create a natural vista.
Big pots such as this one, are difficult to manufacture. Unless a strong clay is used, the weight of the material means the pot will collapse under its own weight, either when the clay is still wet, or in the kiln when it is fired.
The heavy dense clay and skills needed to do this are available in Vietnam where the potters have been making extra large pots for years, although the numbers of them doing so has reduced dramatically in the last 10 years or so. As with other fast developing countries, the youth of today are better educated, and more interested in working in an office than learning the skills that will mean they end up doing manual work for less money.
We are pleased to still be able to bring you this pot which is frost proof and will give you many years of trouble free pleasure as long as you remember to put plenty of drainage material at the bottom when planting it up, and a good quality compost. The addition of pot feet to stand it on, will aid drainage, and give extra protection as well as making the pot stand out.
