Inspired by the French Parterre of the 15th – 17th centuries, the Classic Miniatures Collection reflects a more formal approach to miniature gardening. The border planters, available in four different shapes, may be arranged in any combination to achieve the order, symmetry and grace so characteristic of Parterre gardens. Accessorize a miniature garden or create a unique centerpiece. Add a mini urn or garden statue for just the right look. Use them unadorned, or fill with your favorite flowers, moss, greenery, herbs, berries or boxwood clippings. Each planter is watertight.
