I bought two poka dot planters a year ago for myself and my daughter.
My daughter uses hers beside her kitchen sink! Very useful for her hand cream, washing up liquid,pan scourer,and brush...any residue from water at the bottom of the cup is neatly drained off into the saucer and can be tipped into the sink! Brilliant idea I thought, so have bought a another poka dot one for my kitchen.
Sadly I found that my original planter did not survive the first frost and the poka dots fell off...but they do look lovely with co-ordinating plants in the summer on a garden table....a real eye catcher...just remember to put the planter in the shed for the winter!!!
