Bring spring to your window sill

Personalised flower pots decorated with edding matt paint markers

There's no need to wait until the dreary grey of winter has finally gone before bringing some light into your home. Now you can create a spring feeling inside your own four walls! Bulb plants such as hyacinths and daffodils are a sure sign of spring, and all it takes is a few days of sunshine before they blossom beautifully on your windowsill, in the garden or on the patio.

Make sure you're ready for their arrival with creatively designed flowerpots coloured with edding matt paint markers. The highly opaque ink is well suited to rough surfaces such as terracotta and ceramic, and delivers a satin-gloss effect on materials like these; in fact, these pens were simply made for personalising your planters and pots!
