Garden Pot With Watering Tank

Introduction: Garden Pot With Watering Tank

About: Professional ceramist for 10 years, I mainly work with low temperature red clay for its natural properties and its decorative possibilities.

Garden Pot with Watering Tank

This pot allows slow watering which gives you more autonomy over time. Because of his shape and the porosity of clay, this garden pot requires less watering and give a better chance of survival for your plants.

Mostly practical in flat and town.
