I am definitely Hooked on Cloches of all shapes and sizes!!! A CLOCHE IS LIKE A TINY GREENHOUSE that sits on a garden bed . They are perfect for growing seeds and starting warm-weather plants early. The first bell-shaped glass cloches were invented in 1623 in Italy and were generally about 17 inches (43.2 cm) in diameter and 15 inches (38.1 cm) tall.
I’m sure you’re wondering where I’m going with this?? I’m getting there guys, stay with me . .
Fast forward a few hundred years . . . .Those clever Europeans have brought cloches indoors to be used as decor!!!
Seen below this cloche is used with an aged pottery base.
I like to try different bases for fun. You can even use old Terra Cotta saucers beneath.
They come in all different sizes-Want one ? go here for more.
Now that’s some reeeally big cloche!!!
I like to group cloches with apothecary jars for an indoor garden. OMG
Start a grouping of your own favorite jars and plants.
Ferns thrive in a moist environment.
This is the Mac Daddy of all Cloches!!!!!
It is actually a conservatory and gathering place in a neighborhood of French style homes. It creates the perfect focal point perched on a hill surrounded by urns, overflowing with colorful flowers.
Cloches have a special fascination for me, a fun new find.
Create a great weekend for yourselves!
