When it comes to shopping for plants, we’ve done a lot of research. Previously, we’ve covered the best plants for patios, the best plants for beginners, and the best artificial plants (that are impossible to kill). One thing that all of these plants have in common, whether it’s an expert-recommended snake plant, or a status-y ficus, is that they each require their own pot. Whilst you can stick with the flimsy pot that plants are often sold with, investing in a delightful pot is an opportunity to elevate your greenery (literally, if you purchase a plant stand too).

So, we’ve referred back to our previous reporting on home décor, and sifted through a slew of products on Amazon, to find the plant pots that are worth the faff of repotting.

Whether you’re after some teensy planters for your succulents, or a cheap (but expensive-looking) ceramic pot for the hallway, we’re sure we’ve found something to your taste. Read on for a selection of pots suitable for plants both big and small, pots made from ceramics to cement, and even pots that you can hang (for those short of floor space).

This woven-rope basket has a set of sturdy handles, ideal for when you can’t quite settle on where to place that Monstera.
