Cretan Terracotta Pots

At Tom's Yard you will find the UK's most competitively priced selection of genuine imported Cretan terracotta pots and planters.

Not local? Not to worry. After a number of years in the furniture industry, I have a network of reliable and cost-effective couriers. Get in touch to arrange a quotation.


My finest pots are hand-thrown on a traditional potters wheel, fired in a kiln for 2 days, and then left to soak in water for 3 days. This intense process results in each pot being frost-resistant and, arguably, a piece of art.


 Plants LOVE terracotta due to the following benefits... 

 Terracotta is porous, meaning air and water is able to pass through, ultimately saving your precious plants from root rot and over-watering. 

 In hot weather the evaporation of water from the exterior keeps the root ball inside nice and cool. In the winter the wall provides insulation and helps avoid sudden changes in temperature. 

 Terracotta will draw the water out of soil to help it dry quicker. A great help in colder climates like ours. 

 Terracotta pots may be used for indoor plants and outdoor container gardening.
