Jardinière

Artisan Gallery, Fortitude Valley, Queensland 2014

 

There are some English words which have no equivalent in French, but then there are a great many more French words . . . for which we have no English. One of these is jardinière. Even in French it does not quite rightly express its meaning, because the obvious meaning of jardinière, is female gardener, whereas what we understand by it . . . is a receptacle for holding pot-plants.

— Gertrude Jekyll (1907)
