An Emsa Garden

June 17, 2011

This post can be parked squarely in the category, of look, but don’t touch (at least if you are in the USA). I can’t find anyone with a US distribution.

Nonetheless, I am officially obsessed with Emsa, the German housewares company.  Their line of garden goodies is unlike anything here in the US and totally enviable.

There are the requisite un-twee, chic-er than average containers and windowbox planters.  (you have to check out this cool page where you can mix and match the window box to your liking)

But more than that, they have solved some real gardener problems.  Take the EasyDrain which is a felt bag that you place in your pot and cover with earth.  Not only does it prevent waterlogging but also protects all outdoor containers effectively against frost. In addition, the high-grade, expanded clay drainage layer provides an extra water reservoir, creating an ideal climate for the roots.  I need some of those easy drain bags!!

More at Emsa — and if you know someone who is selling in the US — do share.
