Plants in cans


This must be the newest way to sell plants. These are photos from a recent trip to Amsterdam – in the flower market. I’d seen canned cannabis before, but now all sorts of plants come in cans – birds of paradise, Venus flytraps, orange trees, lemon trees, sensitive plants, cucumbers, daisies, strawberries and tulips. Haven’t seen these in the States yet. Wonder how long they stay viable? I wonder too, if it is allowed to bring them into the states in cans?

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.

  1. I truly hope this does not take off on a large scale. Think of the unsustainable process of making metal cans! This is innovative and seems to be an effort to provide plants for consumers in a convenient way, but there must be a better way!


  2. Willow Hill,THAT was also my first thought when I saw them. I can't imagine a flower, or even a tree can offset the cost & environmental aspects of a canning factory for plants.
