Terracotta is the ideal material to use as an excellent planter. For centuries terra cotta has proven to look beautiful indoors. Terracotta pots will wear equally as beautiful when placed outdoors. Terracotta is a heavier and sturdier material than plastic. For this reason, trees, floral plants, and even decorative bushes are often planted in it.

The world’s finest terracotta pots come from Impruneta, a small village nestled in the Tuscan hills a few kilometers from Florence, Italy. Blessed with clay that is naturally rich in iron, copper, calcium, and aluminum, the town has been well known for its exceptional quality terracotta and craftsmanship for centuries. Hard gray earth is mined from the surrounding hills, ground to a powder, and mixed with water to make this coarse bodied clay. It develops its renown pale, terracotta color after the firing process and is able to withstand extreme temperatures.
