Houseplants are hot news…and Burgon & Ball is top of the pots

Burgon & Ball, the UK’s longest-established designer and manufacturer of garden tools and accessories, is helping garden retailers put the trend for houseplants centre stage, with the launch of an inspirational new collection of indoor pots.
The lush jungle look is a strong theme in interiors at the moment, with houseplants making headlines in the home and lifestyle magazines. The new range of indoor pots from this leading name in the garden industry brings style, fashion and flair to this fast-growing category.
The range includes pots in a choice of colours, finishes and sizes, so there’s the perfect pot for every room, every plant – and every customer. And to make life easy, the pots have been created to fit the most popular sizes of houseplants sold in garden centres, presenting plenty of opportunity for add-on sales.
The range includes unique hanging pots with a cool, contemporary feel, making it easy for customers to get the latest look. With a strong natural leather cord, these hanging pots feature striking textures, colours, and glaze effects in muted shades, perfectly complementing the current trend for ‘Scandi’ style.

There are also glazed pots in a range of gorgeous colours and styles, with beautiful textured designs and an on-trend artisan appearance. Celebrating the rich heritage of ceramics in the regions they’re named after, the ‘Barcelona’, ‘Tuscany’ and ‘Porto’ pots are all available with a choice of size and colour, from calm neutrals to the splash of a vibrant accent shade.
A choice of terracotta pots offers an easy way to add a touch of country house style. Crafted in this most traditional of materials, these pots have a clever ‘weathered’ effect, for a fast way to get the look – without the waiting! This design is offered in small or large options, plus there’s also a low, bulb bowl-style pot for a classic look; perfect for showing off those on-trend succulents.
And for something different, the new collection includes quirky cactus vases; just the thing to add character to a unique indoor display. Available in large or small designs, these eye-catching vases make a real style statement and are sure to be a big hit with fans of these hugely popular and very striking plants.
These pots have been designed to sell at a range of perfect gifting price points, and make a perfect gift not just for green-fingered loved ones, but for every stylish home. All designs in this new collection are now available and are certain to prove popular as the festive season approaches.
