Cork bottoms

All our concrete planters come with a cork base to protect your furniture from scratches. We call them cork bottoms. Just released these cork-bottom designs for our new concrete round concrete planters. And we are thrilled!

Planter Dimensions

Here's an image to give you an idea of Nystrom planter sizes. Combining regular size and mini planters looks great together on a desk. And succulents or cacti are super-easy to take care of: only water every 3 to 4 weeks and then ignore. That's my kind of plant!
