Product Details

The extraordinary Cretan Roumbaki Mallia 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. Plants are not included.

They are marvelous grouped together, since each form seems to flatter every other.

A wide, two-handled pot like this one may well have been used every day by Minoans living in the eastern city of Mallia. The Roumbaki Mallia pot has one drainage hole. Dimensions are for the widest diameter (including handles) by height of pot. Keep from freezing in winter.

  • Measures approximately 18″ wide x 12″ tall
  • Pots are thrown by hand, so no two are alike
  • Weighs approximately 24 pounds
  • Holds about 30 quarts of soil (around 1 cubic foot)
  • Planter uses about 1 bag of our Fafard Container Mix. Click here to order.


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.


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.


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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


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.

Cretan Pot Roumbaki Mallia

I ordered two of these pots as I thought they were a great buy; very reasonable. Although I read the measurements & description, I was very surprised at their very large size. They now have gem boxwoods planted in them on either side of our entrance. I intend on keeping the boxwood shaped in a large ball. As I live where it can get quite cool in the winter, I planted in a liner so that I can remove them and place the pot in the garage in freezing temperatures. I am so glad I purchased these pots; they are very impressive and look great.

Cretan Pot Roumbaki Mallia

I visited White Flower Farm on Sunday, April 8th, with the intent of purchasing one of their hand-made Greek made pots. Due to the cooler weather, they did not have any pots by, or in, their shop. I spoke with the manager who took me to one of their storage facilities on the grounds. The one I selected was not a new pot so she offered to ship a new pot to me free of shipping charges. The beautiful pot arrived today in Maine, April 11th, three days later in wonderful condition. It is beautiful. It was packaged very well and arrived in fantastic condition. It is even more beautiful than I remembered. A huge thank you to White Flower for your great customer service. And to anyone interested in these pots...they are a great value, a fantastic product and beautiful.
