Product Details

Product Details

Exclusive. These extraordinary pots are thrown by hand, then fired for hours in wood-burning kilns that give them a soft and variable shade of tan, which changes with the light and the pots' contents. Shapes are drawn from Classical-era containers that were then, and are now, common household items in Crete. They provide a look that is both traditional and informal, and we've given them prominent positions throughout our gardens and in our home.

The line available at the White Flower Farm Store includes pots up to 6′ tall, but the ones offered here are the largest we are confident will ship safely. They are marvelous grouped together, since each form seems to flatter every other.

The hallmark of this fine pot is a traditional design of serpent-like curves (think of them as ocean waves if you prefer). The jar's ample size lends itself to standards and larger plants. Keep from freezing in winter. The Snake Jar has one drainage hole.

  • Measures approximately 18″ wide x 20″ tall
  • Holds about 60 quarts of soil (around 2 cubic feet)
  • Planter uses about 2 bags of our Fafard Container Mix. Click here to order.

Shipping

Shipping
Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: CALIFORNIA, OREGON, WASHINGTON.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Add a glass top to make a table.

Alice of Wildflower from Oxford, OH

Because this must come inside during winter I decided to add a glass top and turn it into a coffee table. It worked so well that I am buying another pot in a different design to keep inside all the time. These pots have a beautiful, soft, subtle texture that goes well with most furnishings.
