Both Portland Nursery locations have an abundance of containers in every shape and size – for both indoor and outdoor plants – in natural earth tones and a vast selection of rich colors.
Whether you have a sturdy conifer or delicate orchid, a patio tree or tiny bonsai, there is a selection of containers waiting for you to choose from.
We get our containers from both far away and close to home. Traditional stoneware and terra cotta, wood, concrete and sustainably grown and biodegradable pots from plant materials; we have such a wide selection you really should come in and see for yourself. You might even find a pot you love and then have to find a plant to fit it!
Here is just a sampling:
Stoneware, stoneware, stoneware
….the selection of sizes, shapes, colors, patterns just continues to grow, and we are dazzled by each new shipment. Come take a look! (And, if you find one without a drain hole but you'd like one, we can drill it for you in just a few minutes' time.)
Bruning Pottery is classic Pacific Northwest style and colors. They come to us from a family-run business in Snohomish, Washington; specializing in high-fire ceramics with elegant glazes they have developed themselves over the years. Additionally, they have introduced a line of more rustic slab pots in natural, minimally-glazed hues. Long been a favorite of our customers.
Bio-Pots, by Rush Creek Designs are our latest introduction in biodegradable pots for your houseplants. Made from discarded rice husks and bamboo plant scraps, these pots and saucers will last for years in your home. They come in a range of soft, rich colors.
Fern Pots at Portland Nursery
Fern Pots (Blossom Products). No, not made specifically for ferns (though a fern would look stunning in one of these pots), they are actually made from the trunks of fallen tree ferns in Papua, New Guinea and are selected and crafted by local artisans into individually-unique pots of various sizes and shapes, all conforming to the natural patterns of the material, so each is unique. It is a renewable plant product that is otherwise burned for firewood, so no additional energy resources are used in their creation.
They are ideal containers for orchids, bromeliads, succulents and air plants, because they provide natural drainage, and their fibrous structure retain just the right combination of humidity and air circulation to help these special plants thrive.
Recycle Black Plastic Pots
Don't forget Metro will now take black 'rigid plant pots' for recycling. The pots should be 4 inches or larger and buckets should be 5 gallons or smaller. Be sure to rinse the containers and then put them in your mixed recycling bin.
