Iris Pot Covers

Want to quickly color coordinate the plant pots in your room? Slip an Iris Pot Cover over an ordinary pot for a quick splash of color and an instant interior decor statement. Iris Pot covers come in a rainbow of decorator colors—including turquoise, light blue, fuchsia, light pink, lilac and purple. The elasticity of the knitted textiles enables them to adapt to many different shapes and sizes of pots. Iris Pot Covers are made from a durable fabric that is machine washable and mold resistant. A set of three Iris Pot Covers (one each of small, medium and large) includes plastic drainage saucers that fit inside each cover. $29.95 per set.

Water Slice®

Keeping the soil moist in hanging baskets, outdoor container plants and indoor pots can sometimes be a challenge. The Water Slice® solves the problem of dried-out soil by absorbing water and then releasing it slowly to your plants. When dry, each wafer-shaped Water Slice is just 2 1/4 inches in diameter and a half-inch thick. But soak it in a bowl of water and it quadruples in size. Place the wet Water Slice in a hanging basket or container plant to save you the hassle of frequent watering. Each Water Slice can be reused hundreds of times. A three-pack of Water Slices sells for $9.95.

Wellies, Half-Boots and Clogs

Beautiful garden prints from the Royal Horticultural Society(RHS) in England make these garden boots as attractive as they are functional. Made for serious garden work, each RHS boot is hand assembled with a natural rubber exterior, a silky cotton lining, a soft padded footbed and a steel shank in the arch (great for stepping down on a spade!).

Created by Hunter of Scotland for the Royal Horticultural Society, these wellies, half-boots and clogs feature three different watercolor studies by British artist Bryan Poole. Select from roses on a white background, sunflowers on a light blue background or holly on a white background.

Wellies are full-length boots for cool-season wear and when working outdoors in the wettest(and even the snowiest!) conditions. Half-Boots are perfect for summer use since they’re cooler than the wellies but just as sturdy. Clogs can be quickly slipped on at the back door for a foray into the garden. All three styles are available in women’s sizes 5-10. Wellies sell for $69.95, half-boots sell for $59.95, and clogs sell for $49.95 from Kinsman Company, 1-800-733-4146, com.

Gripple Trellis System

The new Gripple Garden Trellis Kit is the easiest way to trellis your fl owering plants and vegetables. The versatile Gripple Trellis system enables you to cover any wall with climbling plants in whatever pattern or design you choose. When covered with plants, the Gripple Trellis is nearly invisible. It’s great for grapes, raspberries, climbing roses, flowering vines and even espaliered fruit trees. Or stretch a Gripple network between two posts in a vegetable garden for climbing beans, squashes or cucumbers. Each trellis kit includes 100 feet of tough black nylon wire, four patented Gripple Tensioners and four steel anchors. $24.95.

Quivering Metal Toadstools

Add a touch of whimsy to any garden with charming decorative toadstools. These magical metal fungi come in shades of lacquered copper, antique gold and pewter. Their caps are on springs, so they quiver in the breeze. Place Quivering Metal Toadstools among ferns and mosses, beside a large tree trunk, in a bed of hostas, or wherever the mood strikes. Two sizes are available—the small toadstools(18 inches tall with caps 4 1/2 inches across) sell for $14.95 and the large toadstools (22 inches tall with caps 6 1/2 inches across) sell for $21.95.
