KG VERDICT
Pretty in pink – or grey if you prefer – this is an attractive set of pots for indoor planting such as herbs or small ornamentals. The different shades provide an interesting colour theme and the different pot sizes will accommodate plants at different stages of growth. No drainage holes so best to insert pots that have drainage holes inside which can then be taken out for watering.


TOP PICK

KG VERDICT
These have a quaint rustic look reminiscent of times gone by. With three different sizes you can grow a range of crops in these – they are quite deep so plenty of choice whether it be herbs or veg. Would suit overhanging fruit like strawberries or tumbling tomatoes. You might want to drill some holes in the bottom for drainage however for outside use.
