Cocktail Planters

Something fun I discovered during a lecture on "Repurposing Swimming Pools" was the term "Cocktail Planters".  What is a cocktail planter?  Well, quite simply it's a pot or planter that grows the things you need for cocktails like lime, mint, lemon, etc.....

Traditionally, you'll see a cocktail planter with a semi-dwarf citrus tree and mint for the spiller part of the pot. There are a lot more things you can plant because it's all up to your own personal needs. Usually the pots are located near areas where drinking is held:)  I thought that was an interesting idea.  Until tomorrow gardening friends......


  1. Hi Rohrerbot,

    I see you attended one of our workshops about Pool Repurposing. We hope you enjoyed it!

    I really like the picture of your Cocktail Planter and I hope it has provided you with delicious libations. The world of Cocktail Planting has come a long way for us here at Realm. We have imagined many different combinations that not only make for beautiful planters but for yummy drinks as well.

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about your Cocktail Planter or gardening in general. As our saying goes, "if it's outside, it's within our Realm".

    Cheers from Team Realm!

  2. Hello there Team Realm! It was a great presentation. I also did a write up about your presentation on the previous post. I think a lot of people have put citrus in pots but you nailed the definition when you said "Cocktail Planter".....I thought you guys nailed it right on the head. I hope all is well with you and the Realm business world.


Thanks for stopping by!
