We have all kinds of containers at Trowbridge. If you grow your plants and flowers inside or outside. Containers come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Think of tin containers or beautiful classical terracotta. What your taste may be, we have the right containers for your plants.

Themed or matching containers right through the house gives a sense of continuity. Warm textured terracotta gives a rustic look, while coloured ceramic tones in easily with your home decor. Metallic finishes lend modernist style while the bamboo or wooden containers are suitably jungly for ferns, palms and bananas. If it's shabby-chic you like, paint wooden containers or salvage items from bric-a-brac stores. Stylish wooden and bamboo containers in white, brown and other natural colours, give your room, or office a serene view. Combine different types of containers with each other to create a wonderful display. Don't forget to make sure you plant the right plants in the right container!.

Plant the right plant in the right container

The shape of your container should also complement the plant growing in it. Low growing, trailing plants like ivy look lovely cascading over a tall container; fountain-shaped plants are complemented by vase-shaped pots. In general, you have to remember to choose a container with a hole in the bottom, this is for water flow. You can also put a plate under the container to keep your windowsill dry after watering your plants. For real wow factor pick out the colours of a plant's leaves or flowers in the colours of the container or choose complementary colours: white, for example, sets off darker greens and purples beautifully.
