For dropshipping in the gardening niche, try selling pots and planters. Keen green thumbs with potted flowers, herbs, vegetables, and container plants are a large market that are always searching for attractive planters and raised beds.
Gardening had a famous revival during the Covid-19 pandemic when activities were limited to the home. Since then, the love for the art of tending to and cultivating a garden has remained unfeigned. According to a report by Bigger Garden in 2023, gardening has become one of the most popular hobbies in North America with "55% of US households actively gardening."
A similar pattern has happened in the UK. A report by Savills in 2023 cites: "Over the past three years, demand in gardening and plants has ballooned at an exceptional rate and, by 2025, is expected to reach £5 billion (UK)."
Target passionate gardeners by dropshipping these 10 trending pots and planters.
Everyone enjoys a bargain, which is why selling a planter set online could be a popular product. Planter sets are a bundle item that include a number of pots. These may be identical pots or planters of the same design but in various sizes.
Gardeners that appreciate uniformity will be particularly drawn to a planter set. In their gardens and patio areas, they prefer their planters to have the same design, pattern, shape, and colour. Planter sets are also a cost-effective way for consumers to stock up on flower pots when they have many plants to re-home into containers.

Solid wood is popular in gardens as it complements the natural surroundings outdoors. A solid teak planter would look stunning on a patio, terrace, or decking. It typically has a warm golden honey hue that catches the eye and contrasts well with green foliage.
Teak is a tropical hardwood that is sourced from the Tectona grandis tree. This wood is used extensively in India, Myanmar, and Indonesia, where the native Tecntona grandis tree is native and plentiful.
Budding gardeners will be drawn in by a solid teak planter and its attractive properties. Not only does it endure heavy water exposure, but it is resistant to splitting, and it has an impressive lifespan.

Fir wood is a softwood and is one of the most common lumber. It is similar to pine wood although fir trees don't grow as quickly. A solid fir wood planter would appeal to gardeners that want a softwood garden planter with the durability of a hardwood.

Solid acacia wood is another trending material for the garden. A solid acacia wood planter has the benefits of being extremely durable, rot and insect resistant, less prone to scratches, and stronger than hickory or oak wood.
Due to its impressive attributes, rich deep-brown smooth finish, and longevity, acacia wood is more expensive than other wood varieties. However, for dropshipping to a target consumer with a higher budget to invest in their garden, a solid acacia wood planter is ideal.

White or pale yellow in colour, pinewood is favoured for its lightweight, structural strength, and sustainable properties. When impregnated, pinewood has a greenish tint. During the impregnation process, pinewood is treated with agents and preservatives to protect against rot, fungi, and insects.
A solid impregnated pine wood planter is a great option to add to your dropshipping store. As it is an affordable alternative to hardwood planters, this gardening product would likely show interest with consumers that have a smaller budget for gardening supplies.

A tall flower pot stand is a dropshipping item for gardeners with an eye for design and composition. The height of a tall flower pot stand means that it works well as a background planter. Smaller plant pots can be placed in front to create dimension as opposed to using containers all of the same height.
Metal, or painted metal, tall flower pot stands can be used both indoors and outdoors. This increases the versatility of this as a dropshipping item as you will be able to target indoor plants owners and outdoor gardeners.

A different take on a standard plant pot is the planter with an in-built shelf. Gardeners can use the bottom shelf for displaying other plant pots or ornaments. The top plant box often has segments to easily separate flowers, succulents, or herbs.
A planter with a shelf has the added practicality of being high off the ground. The benefit of this is that gardeners don't need to bend too much in order to tend to their plants. It also keeps plants out of reach of small children, small pets, and is less of a tripping hazard than a plant pot on the ground.

For compact gardens, balconies, roof-top spaces, and courtyards, a vertical garden planter is a useful product. It consists of a shelving frame with tiered hanging plant pots. The frame is usually fairly narrow to accommodate gardeners with a small area for keeping plants.
Many vertical garden planters are mobile with wheels to manoeuvre with ease. Hanging plant pots have hooks to clip onto the shelving frame. This makes it simple to take on and off for planting, cultivating, trimming, or harvesting. The pots can effortlessly be rearranged on the frame as desired.

Rose growers and at-home vegetable farmers know the importance of trellis. A trellis planter lets gardeners grow climbing plants that require the additional support of a trellis frame. For example, cucumbers, tomatoes, grapes, melons, runner beans, and peas need the assistance of a trellis to obtain the correct amount of sun exposure, air circulation, and improve the crop yield.
Climbing flowers such as sweet peas, roses, jasmine, and passion flowers, and clematis all grow along a trellis when it's available. This means that gardeners can encourage these flowers to create beautiful walls and arches.
A trellis planter has a flower box at the base to plant the seeds or seedlings. The built-in trellis supports the plant and allows it to grow tall.

An alternative to wood planters is a galvanised steel planter. Galvanised steel is steel that has been coated in zinc. This improves its resistance to corrosion and rusting. A galvanised steel planter has the benefits of long-lasting use outdoors, while having a rural farmhouse appearance. When kept polished, the shimmering silver finish adds an interesting element to a garden.
Galvanised steel planters come in different shapes and sizes. Traditional farmhouse pails and buckets are popular, along with raised planters, raised beds, and vintage-style containers reminiscent of times past.
