What are pot toppers? 

Pot toppers are decorative stones that sit in pots. They’re used to beautify plant pots and they also have a functional use: they help with water drainage and hold moisture in the pot. They can also be added to borders and flower beds. 

Kelkay pot toppers come in a range of textures, colours and sizes – examples include pebbles, slate, stones or chippings.  

What are the benefits of pot toppers?  

Pot toppers can be mixed in the pot with soil to provide a drainage system for the plant. Add decorative stones to the top of pots to protect the plant from frost during winter.  

Decorative stones can also be used to create a striking look in the garden – a range of products can be added to plant pots, borders or flower beds to suit the desired style.
