Best pot covers for your house plants

Give your house plant the pot it deserves with our pick of the best plant pot covers and baskets

After all the care and attention you’ve put into growing your plants, make sure you don’t do them a disservice when it comes to their display, by restricting them to an underwhelming pot. This is where pot covers can come in handy.

With pot covers you can choose a design that complements your space without disrupting the plant itself; simply place the original pot inside the new base.

We’ve put together our selection of the best pot covers that will ensure they’re beautifully displayed, whether you’re looking to keep them outdoors, bring them inside, or hang them at eye level to really show them off.

YSGLIFE Rattan Seagrass Plant Pot Cover

YSGLIFE Creative Folding Handmade Woven Rattan Seagrass Tote Belly Basket on white background

Available in black lattice, this high-quality, straw flowerpot was created using a careful weaving method for a sturdy and stylish result. Responsibly sourced and eco-friendly, it has been woven with seagrass that is 100% sustainably grown. As it was put together by an experienced weaver by hand, each cover is a little different from the others which means you’ll have a unique pot cover for your home or garden.

This cover was also created without the use of chemicals, instead relying solely on the natural colours of the seagrass, which means in time the tone will slowly turn to a yellow, especially when exposed to sunlight.

Suitable for indoor house plants, it will fit a pot that is between 20cm to 25cm in diameter, and provide a rustic and homely appearance to the plants you’re most proud of. As these are handmade, each should have a unique element that distinguishes them from others for a stand-out appearance.

Hanging Aged Ribbed Planter

This sleek and sophisticated plant pot from Hortology will complement any space it’s added to, with an understated colour scheme that will make any plant colours pop.

Made from fibreclay (a mix of concrete and glass fibres) it’s suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, but you will need to drill your own holes into the base for drainage if you plan on adding it to your garden. It’s also advised you add a waterproof liner to ensure there’s no water damage to the cover itself.
