The Top Hat Pot
Check out decorative containers from P.E.X.
July 11, 2010
A number of decorative, colorful pots caught my eye on the trade show floor Saturday at OFA Short Course. One company with standout pots is P.E.X., a Quincy, Mass.-based company that's now in its second year.
P.E.X.'s decorative pots stand out for a couple reasons: 1) they're shaped like top hats; and 2) pots have shiny gold rims. Those gold rims might not necessarily stand out if a plant's leaves are hanging over the pot's edge, but the containers are still worth a look for growers in search of a unique decorative container.
P.E.X.'s Jack Montanile says a few growers are even producing plants directly in the decorative containers. The company also offers basic planters, hanging baskets and bowls in addition to the decorative containers.
