Hunting for......



.........a vasque or as it is called in english an urn! And it is all because Carol put this lovely picture on her fabulous blog, raised in cotton.


Fortunately I have managed to find a pair via ebay.fr and I am planning on having them in my shop when I open in September, now I just need to decide what to plant in them...........any ideas?


I love the idea of ivy trailing down but are not fixed on this idea :-)

  1. Mine is full of beautiful round green apples ( not real)...that is about the extent of my green finger.

  2. I love urns too - they're permanently on my hunting list. How about box hedge (buxus) or some lovely succulents (there are so many to choose from, they're easy to grow and look fabulous).

  3. I have been hunting for about 8 months for the perfect ones to plant a Olive topiary tree in. These ones looks beautiful.

  4. Love those urns too. Since you're in France, lavender would be nice. Box hedge is a great idea too, trimmed into a tight ball. But I'm really partial to topiary trees

  5. I love to be able to change things with the seasons ...and if these are permanent displays for your shop you'll want to do the same....you know, plant in a pot and drop into the urn and cover with moss, holly, whatever the holiday or season (or heart) calls for...Love them !

  7. Lavender or an olive tree. I love to put moss in them and little quail eggs on top too or fill with sand and french seashells from my visit to a gift shop in Marseille. Can't wait to see what you do with your urns.
