Plants Under Glass

Janet Hall November 01, 2012

Last week we presented our favorite Wardian cases. Here’s another to add to the list of winter vacation homes for your plants: a glass terrarium framed in copper. Imagine the patina that it will develop over time.

For more, see 10 Easy Pieces: Wardian Cases.

Above: Made by a small British company, the Copper and Glass Terrarium sits in a pine tray with spaces between bottom planks to allow water to drain. The glass house can be used independently of the base; it has stands on each corner to secure directly into the soil or the tray. Set it over plants directly in the garden to protect from winter weather or use with the tray indoors for propagating seedlings or providing a warm climate for potted plants; $139.95 at Williams Sonoma.

Above: Perfect for a tabletop of large windowsill, the Copper and Glass Terrarium measures 13.75-by-9-by-6.75 inches. Other unique features include slightly bowed ends that allow air to circulate inside.

Above: The glass house features a copper handle for ease of lifting and placement over garden plants.
