Stylish Avocado Vase Lets You Grow Your Own Tree At Home

If you’ve ever fancied taking on the perfect green-fingered project, then look no further than this stylish avocado vase.

Featuring a pure and simple design, based on the principles of minimalism, timelessness, and functionality, the clear base allows you to observe an avocado seed as it matures, giving an insight into the plants’ first stages of life.

As the plant blossoms, the specially shaped vase magnifies the roots as they prosper, creating a stunning focal point.

The idea was devised by London-based Ilex Studio and costs £35.

It comes in a stylish white box, complete with a 36-page reference book which walks budding gardeners through the tree-growing process.

If you’ve always fancied keeping your own houseplants but feared becoming a plant parent, the book contains helpful details on seed germination, pruning and re-potting, as well as historical references and artistic inspirations.

The booklet is also printed on recycled cards, in line with Ilex’s mission to improve the environment.

Alternatively, if you’d prefer to grow your own acorn tree instead, the studio also has an ‘Acorn Vase.’

The final result is a magnificent acorn tree that can live for up to one year in the vase, receiving essential nutrients from the acorn.

Once matured, the oakling can then be replanted outside and the vase reused for a new acorn.

Avocado Vase is available at  Ilex Studio for £35. You can also pick up Acorn Vase for £22.
