Outdoor plant pots
When the sun comes out, so should your garden pots! Welcome the warmer weather with colourful plants and plant pots for your front porch, balcony or garden. Give your outdoor space some love this sunny season with everything from flower boxes to trendy planters.
Plants can bring bountiful life, harmony and joy to our homes. But first, you need to prepare a home for your plants. That’s where our stylish garden pots come into play.
With a high-quality garden pot or planter, caring for your plants gets a lot easier. You have the freedom to grow fruits and vegetables even in limited spaces, or maybe create a flower arrangement that brings colour to your outdoor room. Your plants can flourish in the sun during summer, easily be moved and kept inside for winter.
How to choose the right planters for you
At IKEA, you’ll find a wide range of garden pots to create the home garden you desire. However, finding the perfect garden pot can be a challenge, so we’ve put together a quick guide to help you choose.
Metal garden pots
Metal garden pots provide a raw, shiny texture that can be a beautiful accessory to your plants. The effect is greatest if you have a lot of colourful flowers. The shiny material will bring out the colours of the flowers and provides a striking contrast between the natural and the synthetic.
Concrete garden pots
If you like Scandinavian inspired interior design, using concrete garden pots is a great way to create that look. The rustic style of concrete garden pots makes great partners with green and leafy plants. The greyish concrete against the bright green creates a feeling of life bursting forth from the stone.
The classic terracotta pot will fit perfectly in almost any outdoor space. The gentle earthy colour complements most plants in a beautiful way. Grow greens or flowers and let the beautiful pots enhance your front porch, balcony or garden.
You’ll find the planters in many different sizes. Some for a small cultivation, and others that can house taller plants or flowers.
How to take care of your garden pots
Even though our garden pots are made to last, there are some things you can do to increase their lifespan. We recommend that you use a plant mover, or felt pads under the planters, to avoid moisture damage on the garden pots.
Some of our garden pots are frost resistant. If the temperature goes below zero, you only need to empty the soil or cover them up. If you do, you can store them outside all year round. And don’t forget to regularly clean your garden pots. This way, you’ll keep them looking nice and will get rid of bacteria that can harm your plants.
