Planting the Caisse de Versailles Planter CV-60
Built in the 17th century, the Versailles Orangery is home to over 1000 trees. These trees come from Portugal, Spain, and Italy and bear many types of fruit. With the Caisse de Versailles planter, you can bring the charm of the Versailles Orangery back home with you.
The traditional planting is with orange, lemon, pomegranate, palm, oleander, and eugenia trees. The generous size of this piece ensures that the plant’s roots have enough space to grow.
The inner removable bucket protects the roots from overheating and also makes it easy to move the plant indoors during winter months. Holes at the bottom allow excess water to drain away, keeping your plants safe from pesky root rot. This pot is extremely durable and when filled it can’t be tipped over.
