    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

    Displaying your plants in beautiful glassware is an excellent way to grow them and enjoy their beauty. Plants of all sizes can be put in glass as long as you follow a few simple rules. The glass us use can be anywhere from a small shot glass to a large terrarium.

    Glassware for Plants comes in all shapes and sizes. These include glass drinking glasses, hanging capsules, bowls, geometric terrariums, globes of various sizes, glass and wood jars, glass and metal lanterns, hanging glass birdhouses, decanters, votives, and so much more. You really just need to see what is in stock to find the perfect container for your plants.

    If you do not have much room in your living space, or if you simply want to add some beauty to a room, a glass terrarium can enable you to keep a garden in a confined space. The plants will stay in the container and will let you have an indoor garden.

    Advantages of Using Glassware Containers

    With the right kind of glass you may find there are several advantages when growing your plants. For one, you will be the one who will choose what kind of background materials will go into the glass, as well as the type of plant, or plants that you put in the glassware.

    Other advantages include the possibility of growing plants that might not survive in other types of environments, such as one with dry air. If light is an issue, add a small light next to it. This will enable you to place it anywhere in your home or office.

    If the container is covered, you will not need to add water as often as an open container. This is because the water in the container simply circulates, although you will most likely need to add some each month.

    Benefits of having Plants in your Home or Office

    When you have indoor plants, they are also known to be able to help to lower blood pressure and reduce stress. They may also help to increase energy levels and will help clean the air.

    Planter Resource is a large supplier of plant accessories in the New York City area. We carry large selections of glassware to meet your need for glass containers in your home or office. Our friendly staff will be happy to assist you in selecting the plant containers you need.

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.

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.

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.
