The Potting Shed
Handmade English Terracotta Pots
Welcome to the Potting Shed, skilled and experienced makers of high quality terracotta plant pots since 1979.
At The Potting Shed we have been making terracotta garden pots since 1979.
In that time the pottery, in the market town of Hexham in Northumberland, has supplied garden centres, nurseries, country houses and National Trust properties across the country with our range of handmade flower pots and planters. For many years we only sold our hand thrown clay pots direct to the public from our shop in Hexham but, with the advent of the internet, we can now reach gardeners everywhere.
Whatever kind of gardener you are, we have something for you. For the kitchen garden, there are our rhubarb forcers, strawberry pots and herb planters. If you are a specialist grower, we have alpine pans and long tom pots, or maybe, if you just think those houseplants in plastic pots deserve better, we have traditional terracotta flower pots in which they will flourish. A back yard or patio is the ideal place for the larger, more decorative planters such as the lily pot and, if you want to bring interest to a plain wall or fence, a colourful geranium in one of our wall pots and planters is just the thing.
You may, of course, not have any outside space yourself but want a gift for someone who does. Our personalised terracotta planters can be inscribed with your choice of words, be it for a birthday, anniversary or wedding celebration, or a house name for a house warming gift.
We hope the planted pots below will inspire you to click on the online shop and browse through the complete range. We are sure you will find something you like.
