I came across this image this morning over on Old House Gardens’ page about forcing bulbs.   I’ve never seen such wonderful forcing pots and I would love to find something as charming as that hedgehog crocus pot for some late winter fun (but I’d be thrilled to have any of them!).

A quick eBay search turned up absolutely nothing.  Has anyone ever seen something like this?  Know a source? Or perhaps you know someone who is making modern day versions?  Do share – I would be so grateful.

  1. Those are marvellous, especially the beehive one! Hm. I wonder if some are lurking in antique shops, mislabelled as hors d’ouvre servers…

  2. I can not make these pots for you.
    But if I was you I would have a artist make theses for me.
    You would get said artist a whole new(old?)line of art work & she could give/said you the pots.
    I would buy them on line myself, so hurry before someone else offer them.
