L'ecole du Bon Gout Lesson I: How to Plant a Vase Anduze

Bonjour and welcome to L'ecole du Bon Gout!

This week's email offers a lesson in the proper planting of a vase Anduze which has, through age, lost its' outer waterproof glaze. The method illustrated below ensures proper drainage and also includes the use of a heavy duty garbage bag to retain moisture that would otherwise be lost by expiration of moisture through the walls of the unglazed pot.  This method of potting would also be advantageous for use in other porous containers made of stone, wood or even new terra-cotta pots.
 
A beautiful plant is doubly enhanced by a beautiful container.  At Au Vieux Paris Antiques, we presently have in stock not only several vases d'Anduze but also containers of carved stone, cast iron and sheet copper.
