William Morris famously said, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” We wholeheartedly embrace this idea as we enter a new season and plan on filling our homes with fresh new plants this spring. A potted tree completes a space like no other, and did you know that plants in the bedroom may actually help you sleep?
The trouble is that houseplants aren’t so ‘useful’ if we struggle to keep them alive for more than a month. That in mind, we’ve curated this short list of gorgeous self-watering planters to help you keep everything alive with ease…
