Trending Garden Pots in 2022

Homes and gardens brimming with plants are always beautiful. Add decorative garden pots to the greenery and your space becomes alive with colour and texture.


The Windy Willows team understands how the ideal pots can make the perfect pairing for your plant buddies. We also understand the importance of aesthetics and individual styles. Which is why we stay on top of the potting trends throughout the year.


Garden Pots and Greenery Go Hand in Hand


When we think about aesthetics, style, and gardens, we tend to jump straight to landscaping trends specifically. However, sometimes transforming your garden can be as simple as adding a few striking garden pots to the space to break the flow of greenery and give it an interesting edge. It’s also a suitable solution for those avid gardeners who don’t have the luxury of a large garden but can introduce a few pots brimming with plants to their patios.


Garden pots are anything but dull, and the current trends showcase fresh ideas that can cater to any style or taste.


Garden Pots

  1. Make it edible. Being self-sufficient is not only smart but also trendy. So, why not start your very own vegetable garden? It can be so rewarding to grow your own food and herbs, and you won’t even have to sacrifice your aesthetic in the process. With the right pot, your veggie corner can be a functional and attractive addition to your space. Just have a look at the Bollivia Trough, which is ideal for planting herbs and vegetables. It’s also the perfect home for your Barbeque Rosemary.
  2. Just add water. There’s no need to install complicated water features to enjoy the tranquillity that comes with water in your garden. Simply stick to pots by filling a chosen container with water, adding some greenery for decorative purposes and voila! This is a great way to leave out water to welcome birds to come and bathe in your garden, especially during the hot summer. No matter your intention, there’s no denying that a water feature adds a touch of elegance to any garden. So, consider buying a bird bath or filling one of our Delia Pots with water instead.
  3. Keep it moving. A trend that has certainly caught our eye is the mobile garden pot – a container that can be moved around. This may sound unnecessary, but have you ever placed your plant in the perfect spot when it comes to sun exposure, only to realise that the sun barely touches it in the following season? Now you can move your plant to its ideal spot with absolutely no hassle.
  4. Get creative with custom designs. In the end, trends and styles are all dependent on personal taste. If your tastes run more towards the sleek and modern, then a ceramic pot in a striking shape or colour would be ideal. Maybe you consider yourself more eclectic and funky. In that case, opt for a textured, artsy style instead. For added creative flair, convert everyday household items into garden containers and scatter them in various spots in your garden for eye-catching appeal. Whatever your style, you’ll be happy to hear that Windy Willows offers custom pots. This means that your garden pots can be made exactly to your preferences. You simply need to choose the style of the pot you have in mind, the colour that suits your aesthetic and then decide if you want a smooth or rough finish. It’s all up to you.
