Pot luck - Creative garden pots

With a love of gardening and a zany creative streak, Dianne Yeomans has given birth to a range of fabulously coloured and designed pots. Initially the pots were driven by a desire to add them into her own gardenscapes, but with ample talent on her side, the hobby has now grown into a small business with many favourites being sold to other pot lovers.

Creative Garden Pots

All pots are created using a paint system of Resene Quick Dry Acrylic Primer Undercoat followed by the application of the design using a vast collection of Resene testpots and a quick coat of spray varnish to seal the work.

Aptly named, 'My Garden', Dianne's garden in Waimana, Bay of Plenty is open annually during the spring and summer months. Originally it was the garden itself that drew all the visitors, but of late the pots themselves are just as big a drawcard and a sought after treasure.
