Greenery Unlimited Makes Planters for the Botanically Challenged
If you — despite your best efforts and good intentions — are a serial plant-killer like me, Greenery Unlimited will be your next victim’s saving grace. Specializing in biophilic design (i.e., design that enhances people’s connection to their natural environment through direct and indirect contact with nature), Greenery Unlimited is a modern plant company that creates planters, tools, and accessories that make plant care easy — perfect for those of us without green thumbs. They understand plants’ power to elevate indoor environments, and in doing so their ability to enhance overall wellness and quality of life. Read on to discover why we’re loving Greenery Unlimited, then find their plant goods and accessories in the Design Milk Shop.
After working in corporate botanic design for a decade, Greenery Unlimited founders and husband-and-wife team Adam Besheer and Rebecca Bullene wanted to share their expertise with their local community. “We saw the houseplant trend on the rise, but also saw a lot of misinformation and consumerist attitudes that treated plants as disposable décor,” says the duo. Besheer and Bullene wanted to support the rising cultural interest in plants, while honoring nature and practicing sustainability. This explains the durable and high-quality construction of Greenery Unlimited goods, and the automated, low maintenance growing systems they’re known for. Greenery Unlimited accessories are made to last, made to enhance your plant knowledge, and most importantly, made to care for themselves — requiring little human intervention — so your plants can live long happy lives, and you can feel like a botanical master.
Sutton 15 Self Watering Pot
A favorite among the Greenery and Design Milk teams, the Sutton Pot features a patented sub-irrigation system that allows your plant to drink from its roots as nature intended — so your plants are never over-watered again (!!). We love the modern spherical shape of the Sutton and its footed design, both of which are carefully designed to accommodate long, cascading pants and the water reservoir below. It’s made of a high-quality glazed ceramic that comes in 3 aesthetically pleasing finishes: Matte Black, White Dolomite, and Pale Salmon — though we’re partial to the warm tones of Pale Salmon.
Varick 20 Self Watering Pot
Another self-watering favorite is the Varick 20 Pot. The vessel’s slanted design gives it a modern and minimalist look that flatters foliage and flowering plants alike, while the elevated base leaves ample room for the large water reservoir below. The large reservoir lets your plants drink at their own pace, saving you the stress of figuring out when to water (though the soil probe ought to help with that!). Available in the classic trio of Greenery finishes, we’re particularly fond of the Varick in Matte Black to highlight its sculptural form.
Milton 41 Large Planter
If you’re looking to make a statement with your plants indoors or out, the Milton Large Planter is the one for you. Inspired by the Greenery founders’ botanic design experience, the Milton delivers on the horticultural requirements of large plants and high design aesthetic standards. The timeless shape of the Milton and ultra-durable construction make this a planter you (and your plants) will cherish for a lifetime. Our favorite of the assorted colorways? Stone!
Monitor Brass Soil Probe
Here’s something I never knew I needed — this Brass Soil Probe, which helps monitor the condition of your plant’s soil so you know when it’s time to water, and aerates the roots and soil so your plants can breathe. Given the fact that over-watering is the most common reason plant’s pass on (I am 100% guilty of this), we should all have one of these tucked in our plant pots. The probe reminds us that the more we know about our plants (like how their soil is doing), the more attuned we become to the needs of living things — which motivates us to act in nature’s best interest (give that plant some water!). Plus, the modern brass colorway is a great way to work metallics into your décor in the process.
10 Inch Fiberglass Planter Saucer
Designed to catch any excess water that drains from your planter, Greenery’s Fiberglass Planter Saucer is handmade in Vietnam from ultra-durable and watertight fiberglass, and features rubber footers to keep your home’s floor and surfaces protected and dry. The simple saucers are designed to accommodate Greenery Unlimited planters (there is also a 14 inch size for larger pots), and even come in special colorways like stone and terracotta — so you can mix and match finishes for a look that’s entirely your own.
