When considering the shape of your pots the choice will depend on the type of plants you would plant in them. Cylinder pots are ideal for flowers and have an elegant design that would look great in any kind of home setting. Due to their lovely shape these ports can function as decorations as well and help enhance the natural beauty of flowers. For plants with shallow root systems bowl shaped pots would be the best choice. Their practical shape allows you to combine various types of decorative planets together and create a charming miniature garden in a single pot.

The one factor that determines the quality of your pots is certainly the material. Fibreglass is a popular material due its durability and simple yet sophisticated appearance. It looks similar to glazed ceramic and is highly resistant which makes it perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. Besides fibreglass is a lightweight material which means you can easily change the location of your container garden whenever you want to. Although not as durable as fibreglass plastic pots have a practical design and are available in various sizes which makes them a good choice for growing a variety of plants. Pots made from glazed ceramic are very durable and have a sturdy design. They come in a wide range of colours and can complement various landscapes and home settings. One downs side is that they tend to be heavier than plastic and fibreglass models so you it is much difficult to move them around.
