FOR THE LOVE OF PLANTERS
Indoor plants are one of the hottest interior trends right now. Scroll through your Instagram feed and you are guaranteed to find images of plants that evoke a sense of being at one with nature and let’s face it, we are responding by double-tapping these beautiful images.
This Blog post is not about gardening, far be it from me to give anyone advice or tips on gardening. I’m a double tapper for sure, a lover of the idea of wonderful indoor plants, beautifully manicured gardens, pots and planters indoors and outdoors, succulents and herbs but by no means an expert in the world of greenery.
What this blog is about is planters, Fermob planters to be exact. Fermob manufacture outdoor furniture that combines authentic design, metal and colour to make the brand’s furniture functional, durable and fun and Fermob planters are all that and a little bit more.
The Terrazza planter (pictured above) designed by Archirivolto for Fermob is generous in size and available in two heights. Fitted with a handy lower shelf this planter is also extremely convenient.
An inbuilt drainage hole and offset drainage system is a feature of the planter and allows excess water to be directed to surrounding plants.
If you are looking to separate or define area’s in your outdoor space or on the balcony, Terrazza planters make for great room or space dividers and of course, most importantly the planters are available in 22 of the Fermob colours.
This Collection is perfect for creating a genuine urban garden – from the city to the country.
The Fermob basket (pictured below) designed by Fabio Meliota is a makeover of the traditional planter.
The drainage system allows water to drain from both ends of the aluminium planter, two size options that vary in height and width with separable feat and stand make it convenient to move around.
The Fermob baskets come in 24 colours, which like it’s counterpart the Terrazza can be a smart alternative to the conventional terrace separator.
Getting creative with colour using Fermob planters has never been more practical and fun.
