    Metal Planters in New York City

    If you’re tired of the standard pottery, consider trying out our metal options. These are great options for fancy events, although you could have them in your home if you wish. Metals are excellent choices for your plants, although make sure they still have their dirt and water necessities.

    We have two urn options available, the Aluminum Montigo Urn and the Gold Urn. These urns are excellent and unique possibilities for your plant decorating. It’s best to keep plants that grow upwards in these urns, that way they grow happy and healthy.

    Other metal options we have are the Milan Vase and the Dorado Bowl. These are also stunning pieces for your plant to reside in. The bowl is a great option for your centerpiece or on your side table. The vase is another great consideration, especially for plants that are growing straight upwards. Our features come in a variety of dimensions, check them out as you consider the options and call us if you have any questions.

    Benefits of Gardening in Metal Containers

    • Metal urns and vases hold moisture well. This is ideal for some plants, but may not be the best idea for others. If needed, drain holes are easy to add.
    • They are portable. If you ever want to change up the look of your garden you will be happy to know that metal containers can be easily moved.
    • Metal containers come in all shapes and sizes, so it is likely that you can find what you are looking for.
    • Medal containers are lightweight when compared to other materials such as wood or ceramic.
    • They look great. The style of the metal container complements the wood and other materials that may be found in your garden.
    • They are durable, and will likely survive a long time. As the saying goes “It’s better to buy it nice than to buy it twice”.

    When choosing from your metal options, it is best to do your research. It is important to pick a metal that won’t harm your plants. Cheaper metals rust quickly and can dent easily. If keeping your plant outside you need to make sure that the sun is not heating up the soil too much.

  • Glassware

    Step Up Your Space With Glass

    Display your favorite plants or decorative florals in our array of beautiful glassware. The transparency of glass material is a great way to enjoy the ever-changing beauty of its internal contents. Individuals can put plants of all shapes and sizes into glassware that ranges from small shot glasses to large terrariums.

    We Give You Creative Control

    Imagine the possibilities that you can personally design when including pottery from Planter Resource. Our wide variety of glass pottery can elevate the decor or add to it flawlessly. Bringing glassware into your space, especially near a window, can draw light into the pottery and amplify the space’s look. Lean on us to provide the unique glass that you’re looking for to illuminate your favorite place.

    Choose The Right Glassware For You

    The glassware we have available at Planter Resource includes tall and short vases, bias bowls, and glass cubes and cylinders. The Ayre Vase has a fluted shape that comes in numerous sizes to bring a touch of classic elegance to any design. The Bias Bowl closely resembles a candy dish and can come with or without a glass stem. If a grand centerpiece is on your events radar, Planter Resource offers a clear glass cylinder, a white glass cylinder, and a tall cube plate. For something more unique, plated glass in varying lengths can accent any whimsical or highly styled space. We can assure you that adding glassware to any room will enhance its charm and beauty.

    However, if you don’t have much room in your living space or just want to add some extra beauty into a dull room, we suggest including our glassware. By adding a glass terrarium, the glassware can enable you to keep a garden in a confined space. Now there can be no more slaving away over plants in the outdoors. The plants will stay safely in the container and will let you have an indoor garden to enjoy all day long.

    The Benefits of Using Glassware

    With the right kind of glass decor in your home, you may find that there are several advantages to incorporating it into your decorative style. Firstly, all contents within the glass will be changeable based on the different aesthetic you are going for in your personal space. Essentially, the glassware will act as a blank canvas to allow whatever goes inside of it to shine and tell the story. You will be able to see the flowers, rocks, plants, or other items that are inside of the clear glass.

    There are a few other advantages of using glassware in your home or office, which include:

    -The ability to grow plants that might not survive in different environments, like those with dry air, can be put into our glass pottery and easily be kept alive.

    -The fact that glass is incredibly easy to clean and take care of allows for easy upkeep. Any dirt or grime is easily visible and can be taken care of quickly.

    -The watertight nature of glass means there’s little to no chance for leaks unless the vase or bowl cracks during use.

    -The capability of increasing light within a room. If there’s no light passing through the glass, adding a light next to it can enable a bright and inviting piece in your space.

    -The stress-relieving properties of plants can help lower blood pressure and increase energy levels.

Types of Planters

Wooden Planters

Wooden planters are very affordable. They are available in a range of shapes and sizes. Wooden seedlings have excellent drainage. They are, though, strong and have the potential to rot.

If you are short of space, a wooden planter is a perfect way to build a bed in which to grow plants and vegetables. Depending on your preferences, your wooden planter can be customized to match every corner. And it can be stained in any color and will not rot, since it is made of pressure-treated timber.

You can get wood planters ready for planting by using treatments such as chemical sealers, water-based preservatives, or linseed oil. Once you’ve researched the benefits of each treatment type, you’ll need to consider the longevity of your wood planter. Think about things like elevating your planter boxes on pot feet or small blocks of scrap wood if they will be sitting on a wooden deck or patio surface. This will prevent trapped moisture from affecting the underlying surface, and also create space for the containers to drain.

Ceramic Planters

Ceramic planters are offered in a wide range of styles, colors, and sizes. They have better drainage than clay. They look pretty and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor decoration. They may be more expensive and heavier compared to other planter types, with poor drainage. Ask us about the best way to maintain your ceramic planter! Airflow, resulting in healthy plants, promotes root development. But if you tend to overwater or for plants that prefer dry soils, the clay often moisturizes nutrients from the soil, making ceramic pots a safer option. This also indicates that plants need more water in ceramic pots than plants in plastic pots. This planter brings sculptural beauty to your patio, front porch, or living room. Ceramic planters are perfect for a leafy fern or small colorful blossoms.


Terracotta planters are beautiful, but also delicate. You need to be gentle when using terracotta pots, especially when moving them to different locations or handling them in the cold.

They may require more frequent watering than other non-porous pots, as terracotta pots are made of baked clay. This makes it super easy for water to pass through a pot that helps prevent root rot but often means that you need to water your plant more. Our golden rule of thumb when using terracotta pots is to soak your pot prior to use it! Fill up a sink and soak them overnight or at least 30 minutes prior to potting.

The porous design of terracotta planters allows air and water to flow through the walls, avoiding soil disease and root rot. For indoor plants and exterior container planting, terracotta containers may be used. Terracotta pots are valued for a reasonable cause, from fertilizing away seeds and seedlings to growing a selection of plants and cacti. Whenever you need a decent planter, they make an excellent pick. For a lot of plants that like drier soil, terracotta containers are perfect.

Glass Planters

Bring the outdoors in with our selection of glassware planters. Create a contemporary display of greenery with an array of terrariums, plant pots, planters, and containers – ideal for cacti, succulents, ferns, and moss.

You can hang the glass planter in the bedroom, patio, living room, or place it on your coffee table. These planters are beautiful, eye-catching flowerpots and will make any plant DIY project purify your house or office, a good decoration for you. You can send it to your friends as a practical present.

Glass planters are a perfect place for a range of plants to be shown throughout the house. Their interesting elements bring elegance to every room immediately. A number of items that will upgrade every home are included in our collection of glass planters.

Metal Planters

Metal planters look good and are available for a very cheap price. They have low ventilation, though, so they can overheat plants as well. As storage pots, metal planters are commonly used, i.e. decorative exterior pots in which plants are put in other types of pots. Using metal planters as caching pots avoids all doubt over the metals that penetrate the soil. It also makes repotting the plant fast, as required in most instances.

Decorate Your Outdoors Or Even Any Corner in your house with these Extraordinary Metal Planters and their Beautiful Design Engraved. Classy Look and structure. Convenient for both indoors and outdoor purposes. Durable and elegant.
