Featured on Wayfair: Planters You’ll Love

Sure, sure, I know a couple of things about potting plants, but no one would ever call me an expert. I’ve had my hands in the dirt since I was two, but there is always more to learn.

So imagine my delight when Brooke Magliozzi of Wayfair got in touch and asked me to answer a few questions for a blog post on planter types. The post features about a dozen garden bloggers who describe their favorite type of planter, and offer personal tips on choosing the right planter for your home.

According to their about page:

Wayfair offers a zillion things home. With one of the world’s largest online selections of furniture, home furnishings, décor and goods, including more than seven million products from over 7,000 suppliers, Wayfair helps people find the perfect product at the right price.

The Wayfair blog features my three-tiered, DIY clay planters, a project I shared on my blog back in 2013. If you want to read how I created the “flower-tower” you can head back in time to Flower Tower in (a Few) Hours.

If you click on over to Planters You’ll Love: Planter Tips From the Experts, you’ll see my entry about half way down the page.

  1. Your planter is such a nice idea Alys! Like the effect if the gold. I’m going back to that page to see some of the other good ideas too. 🙂 Hope to plant up my summer pots in a couple of weeks.


  2. What a clever idea, Alys — I love it! Congratulations on having your planter featured. I suspect a lot of gardeners across the U.S. will soon be shopping for tiered pots (myself included :).


  3. I remember that lovely idea, the touch of gold is so clever! It has weathered well too. Isn’t it a wonderful feeling when someone asks you to contribute – it’s kind of a validation of all your work. I really need to adapt this idea for my tiny courtyard – where going up is necessary 🙂


  4. How delightful for you! I consider you an expert. Someone else agrees. 🙂 I did love the triple stacked pots in gold. I loved all the pots as they all have their place in the garden. Someone must have been watching your blog to see how good you garden. 🙂 Hugs,


  5. Super cool, to have your idea recognized like that! It *is* a clever arrangement and seems so manageable. I’m going to go see if I happen to own pots that will work!
