Editor's Notes

March 22, 2020:

If you aren’t purchasing artificial plants or trees to go along with your urn planter, don’t forget to make a checklist of handy items that might help you along. While you don’t necessarily need a whole gardening kit to get the job done, you should consider getting a small trowel for shoveling soil so you don’t end up using a large spoon or cake slicer like I always find myself doing when planting. If you’re planting multiple items in one or several urns and want to keep track, using garden markers never hurts.

While the FCMP Outdoor Heritage and H Potter Rustic stretch the definition of “urn” when it comes to planters, both share many of the traits that define the genre, and would be used in essentially the same situations, fulfilling the same function, so it felt like they wanted to be on the list. While I would have liked to include more designs with attractive relief work such as the Christopher Knight Moroccan, verifying the quality and reception of many offerings proved difficult.
