Size: Terracotta planters can come in sizes as small as a few inches. For instance, while large terracotta planters are common, adorably tiny ones are not. But we have them!
These 12 miniature terracotta pots are no bigger than 1.5 inches and make a great gift for someone just starting out on their home garden journey. On the other hand, a statement piece like our giant cup-and-saucer planter can be all you need to let your home come alive.
Finish: Some terracotta planters are handmade while others are machine-made. You can easily tell the difference by its finish. Handmade pots generally have an organic feel, a texture that shows the uniqueness of the craftsperson who made the pot. Machine-made planters come in both rough and smooth finishes, and are more uniform because they are manufactured in bulk.
Durability: Terracotta planters are ideal for home gardeners with a delicate touch.
While they are hardy and can withstand most outdoor conditions, they are no match for boisterous cats, dogs, or even children!
