The Container Gardening Experts

From humble beginnings in 1897, a small pottery factory was established in suburban Melbourne, expertly crafting planters, chimney pots and tiles for local homes and businesses.

Fast forward to today, Northcote Pottery is the leading and most experienced distributor of pots and garden décor across Australia and New Zealand. We’re proud that our planters, hanging baskets, statues, birdbaths, water features, outdoor heaters and letterboxes grace the homes and backyards of so many.

During our 120 year history, we’ve learned a thing or two about pots, and we’re here to help you with expert advice on all things container gardening, whilst offering a comprehensive range of on-trend, functional products for every project. Whether you’re looking for tips for perfectly potted combos, growing lush indoor foliage or advice on how to harvest herbs right from your patio, look no further. We work closely with our resident horticulturalist and container gardening expert Melissa King to bring you the best advice and inspiration.


Northcote Pottery products can be found at Bunnings Warehouse and independent garden centres, nurseries and hardware stores across Australia and New Zealand. If you’re having trouble finding a stockist near you, please get in touch with our friendly team.
