Set of three terracotta growing pots. Dimensions: height 10 cm x top diameter 11cm x bottom diameter 9 cm We think these classic, unfussy designs work best in an English garden. Although the inspiration came from Tuscany, the pots have been made in Turkey. They are hand thrown (sometimes from 2 pieces of clay for the larger pots) by Argun and his son who are the 3rd and 4th generation of potters from the Izmir region on the Aegean coast. The clay from this area ages to a lovely patina, as the salts slowly leach to the surface. Each pot is fired to 1080 degrees C (to make it as frost proof as possible) and has an extra large drainage hole in the base.
