Melissa King & Northcote Pottery
Television gardener and writer Melissa King is proud to be associated with Northcote Pottery, “Northcote has been setting the standard in garden pots and decor for over 110 years and I’m thrilled to be involved with a company with such a rich history” explains King. “As a long time inner city gardener, I’ve become a firm fan of Northcote’s broad range of styles and colours that make enjoying a garden in even the narrowest courtyard or smallest balcony an absolute pleasure”.
Melissa knows that today’s outdoor living lifestyle is also about more than pots, “Northcote’s ever growing range of fountains, wall art, garden ornaments and furniture is very exciting” enthuses Melissa, “Adding a water feature, a simple piece of wall decor or a casual garden seat can really turn a patio or veranda into an outdoor room.”
Melissa’s fresh and engaging style makes gardening accessible to people of all ages. Her passion for growing fresh fruits and vegetables grown in pots is a favourite with her audiences everywhere, whether it be on Foxtel’s ‘Garden Angels’ or when she speaks enthusiastically at garden clubs and garden centres around the country. “Northcote’s huge range of shapes and sizes makes it so easy to have fresh and healthy produce, ready to harvest right by the back door!”
So why does Melissa King highly recommend Northcote Pottery garden pots and decor?
“The range really is ‘designed for lifestyle’” laughs King.
