Inspired by Classic Italian proportions the Venasque Jar is one of our favorites for its bulbous squatty shape that designers love in formal or modern garden settings. Frame an entry door with a pair filled with your favorite seasonal plants or place alone as an architectural statement and its sure to satisfy. It can also be grouped as shown with the Oliviere and Valensole Jars.

Care & Maintenance/Outdoor Planting Instructions: There is no such thing as a 100% frost-proof planter. The freeze-thaw cycles that occur in winter will cause any water in the container to freeze and expand which may cause the container to crack. It is best to store the item in a dry place out of the elements. Terra Cotta planters are equipped with pre-installed drainage holes to allow for drainage. The drain holes must be kept clear to maintain the longevity of your planter, especially in climates that undergo freeze thaw cycles in the winter. If you are unable to bring a planter out of the elements: We recommend covering the drain holes with a mesh screen or equivalent to keep debris from clogging the openings; Filling the bottom of the planter with non-porous drainage material; Filling the remainder of the planter with a well-draining soil mix that will not retain water; and lastly, covering the soil with decorative mulch or pine bark to the top rim of the planter to discourage water from pooling on the surface. For indoor use, we can source saucers for special orders and plugs are available upon request.
Cleaning Instructions: Terra Cotta planters can be cleaned with either mild soapy water or Windex® with Ammonia-D. Spray down the surface of the planter where it is dirty and use a lint-free cloth or sponge to wipe the surface. Note that it may take several cycles of wiping and drying before the planter is completely clean. Do not pressure wash, use alcohol based cleaners, apply corrosive cleaners or clean with anything abrasive.
