Although gardening is one of the most popular hobbies in the world, it is also one of its most innovative. Most homeowners are now able to do a little container gardening. Businesses recognize the value of plants and outdoor spaces are flourishing with flowers. A community of people with new ideas and innovative concepts is pushing this general trend toward enhanced greenery.
What is container gardening?
Not too long ago, more people moved to cities to seek better lives. They needed a way to grow their gardens without having to own one. Container gardening is a great alternative to a garden. We can have fashionable ornamental plants in our homes with just a few containers, flower pots, or planters. You can create botanic works of art in your garden. Our gardening skills can be used to enhance the mood and impress others. What are the top trends in the simple flower pot? There are many.
Outside container gardening
Containers can be used outside to enhance the design and architecture of your home. You can bring together a theme you have started in your home by using containers outside. How can you make your outside unique and fashionable? These are the top trends in flower pot use.
Make the most of what you already have
Flower pots do not have to be made in a factory. With a little imagination, any object that can hold water can be made into a pot. You can use an old barrel, an old tire, or a suitcase as planter precursors. Although there are many traditional shapes, mass-produced pots may not look as cottage-style as vintage wheelbarrows. This trend will change the way you look at garage sales.
Let it rust
Outdoor trends: Rusty plant pots are a way to create a rustic garden. Although it doesn’t harm your plants, rust from plant pots can make your garden look more natural, textured, and colorful. This effect can be achieved by choosing an iron or steel potter that is not coated with a waterproofing material. Allow your containers to rust in the sun or in high humidity. You will get a unique, natural-looking planter design after the oxidation process has finished.
There are many interesting and unusual container options, but they might not be the right ones for you. For example, a large concrete planter looks great in the garden, but it is too heavy to be used for winter. The cachepot is a way to solve this problem. A cachepot is basically a facade. It’s a pot that looks good while the actual plant pot is inside. The inside container may be lighter, more simple, and less expensive. Although it is not visible, it will protect your plants.
Modern molding techniques and 3D design are proving to be a challenge to flat and sleek surfaces. Gardeners are increasingly using novel and creative flower pots, from Renaissance-inspired sculptures that sit on the ground to figurine gnomes that keep herbs and sit in the flower bed.
Anything is possible for the garden enthusiast with some tech knowledge and a 3D printer. Commercial markets can also find interesting, ready-to-ship items.
Jay Scotts has many modern designs that capture the 3D movement. For example, the Spiral Modern globe planter features concave layers stacked around to create a globe. This is great for adding intrigue and interest to any space.
Uncoated concrete is the perfect choice for industrial design lovers. Concrete containers have a fresh, neutral appearance that is easy to blend with minimalist designs. Concrete planters are also light, which has many benefits.
Concrete flower pots are difficult to knock over and can withstand heavy winds. Concrete can also be used to make more traditional planter shapes. The molding process can produce any design or pattern that you can think of.
Indoor container gardening
Modern interior design was born around 100 years ago. It opened up the possibility of enhancing your interior with color, texture, or form. We are constantly looking for innovative ways to achieve our stylistic goals. The humble plant pot is one solution.
Indoor gardeners are increasingly experimenting with arranging and adding to their plant pots in order to create their own style. To keep up with consumer trends, planter materials are becoming lighter to better suit the changing needs of consumers.
Jay Scotts is a big fan of fiberglass. This material is light and strong, making it ideal for houseplants that require frequent movement.

The Jay Scotts Alicante Round Planter has a bold design and is lightweight.
You can see all with glass
You can create beautiful pots from glass that reflect nature from top-to-bottom. You can choose plants such as English Ivy that are well-equipped for living without soil and watch the grass grow and roots sprout in complete transparency. The ceiling-mounted glass prisms are stunning and elegant. One recent trend is to add a few fish to the root of the plant. However, this can only be done with non-toxic plants.
It’s not unusual to use every surface for planters, but it is a new concept to create new surfaces. Hanging planters are a new way to maximize vertical space in your home. You can find a variety of hanging planters, but I love the look of a rattan cachepot with rope to give it a boho feel.
Better and bigger
Trend-setting is made easier by better design, production techniques, as well as delivery channels. One trend is toward bolder and larger planters. According to The Royal Horticultural Society’s 2020 gardening trends report, houseplants and their containers are growing in size. As opposed to plants being an afterthought, indoor plants are now a focal point in the design landscape.
