Flowerpot Man Garden Ornament



I know the snow's back and temperatures have dropped again but spring is on its way, honestly ! Last weekend, Mike planted out some bulbs in pots that had been sitting in the garage over winter and had started growing long leaves. Not sure how they'll get on with the frost though !

Anyway, if you like cheeky, cheerful flowerpot holders, you'll love this flowerpot man. Standing 21cm (8") high, he's big enough to accommodate a medium-sized flowerpot and he adds a splash of colour and interest to our patio which is looking decidedly bare and (dare I say it ?) dead at the moment. He should look even prettier when the flowers start (hopefully) blooming.


Even if you haven't got a garden/patio/windowbox, you could put him inside the house with an indoor plant. Or, if you want a romantic atmosphere just right for Valentine's day, you could put a little tealight candle inside and watch the terracotta glow around his heart-shaped opening.

But if you want to avoid an argument about whether to call him Bill or Ben, you might want to get two !

  4. I think that this is really cool and creative pot. Its nice to have something new in the garden. I'm also kinda bored with all the usual and old design pots.
