What is the difference between a plant pot and a planter?

- Aug 29, 2019-

Despite often being used interchangeably, there are actually some differences which separate a plant pot from a planter and being aware of these differences can help you to know exactly what it is that you’re looking for.

Whilst many plant pots are often round, such as our wooden plastic plant pots. Planters tend to be rectangular shapes. 

As such, plant pots tend to hold just one plant, whilst planters are often used to contain several, as seen with our rectangular plastic planter. Planters are also predominantly for outdoor use and are designed to withstand outdoor conditions, whilst plant pots can also be for indoor and decorative purposes.
