These planters from Vancouver company Pot Inc. may be even prettier than the blooms you’ll grow inside.

Now that the longer days are finally here, I’m getting that familiar itch to start growing things. To be honest, I’ve had spotty success in the past, but maybe that’s because my containers were not nearly attractive enough to keep me focused on the task at hand. These gorgeous, Vancouver-made designs by Pot Inc. come in a half-dozen bold and beautiful colours—from chili red to iceberg blue—and are fabricated from thick gauge, double powder-coated aluminum. Durable enough to be used indoors or out, the planters are perfect for annuals or, thanks to its effective drainage design, dry-soil-loving succulents.Emoda Hover Dish by Pot Inc., $175, available at
