By melding gorgeous design with adaptive functionality, the humble gardening pot goes from static to sustainable.

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t possess a particularly green thumb. Sure, I’ve got a few potted mint and basil plants lined up on my kitchen countertop, but those were inherited from a since-departed neighbor. I’m fairly certain that if I’d been the one tasked with raising them from seedlings, well, my countertop would probably be a lot emptier than it is now. In particular, I’ve never gotten the hang of transferring a plant from a small pot to another larger, more accommodating one. Invariably I’ll slice the roots or over/under water the newly-transferred foliage, at which point the plant dies, and for my effort I’m left with not one, but two empty, useless pots. What a waste all around.
