1.Glass bowls used as herbs & flower pots

Glass has been used as flower vases for ages and is was only naturally to use them as permanent flower pots also. Its transparency can transform the flower's roots into a little piece of art which develops and grows in time. Another advantage in using a glass bowl as a herb or flower pot is the fact that it can integrate in any interior design and give it a shiny beautiful touch.

2.Wooden boxes as Herbs & Flower Pots

Wood is a very used material and its primary advantage is the fact that it can age beautifully, looking better and better in time. Its very easy to use and make a small wooden box or just use an old recycled one and transform into a flower pot.
