Toulon Planter is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable These pots endure harsh Michigan winters, and still look new. I especially like the glossy exterior finish.
Date published: 2014-05-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely gorgeous! These pots are beautiful as well as functional, and I must have both to be happy. I love the South of France, and these pots look remarkably like the french designs that I have seen before. They are beautiful, elegant in appearance and easy to use around the yard and patio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are impressive planters. These are beautiful planters. They are gorgeous flanking our front door. We have the cream color. It is the exact color shown in their photo. These are true quality planters. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New and Improved! I've purchased a lot of these Toulon Planters over the years. I was quite impressed with the first couple that I bought and even wrote a very positive review. But subsequent orders all had serious problems: uneven coloring in the same planters--broken bases--bases that, due to production errors, didnt attach to the urns and more. I had to return a number of planters before finally just giving up. But I desperately needed a couple of planters and couldnt find anything I liked more than this design. So I decided to try these planters again. And, hooray, the design of the bases is totally different. They're all one piece (so no problems with the bases) and the coloring is much better. These were the small planters and I'm now trying to decide whether to chance my luck with the larger ones. But, in any event, I'm very happy with them. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall very happy The pot is sturdy and well made. It is also an attractive green color. I am happy and very satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect on my deck, I'd buy it again. When I first saw the med. white Toulon, I thought it was too white, but with a large sun loving fern in it, it looks tropical and beautiful. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice detailing I actually purchased the Toulon planters on behalf of a client. While we liked the overall quality, we were disappointed that one of the planters had chipped paint in two places and when touched, chipped even more. Fortunately I was able to camouflage the damage with the plant materials I used. I'm not sure what is involved in the process of making these planters but it appears that only one coat of paint is applied and would be better with two. Otherwise a good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pot... but buy two if you are replacing an old one We replaced an old pot and when the new one arrived the colors although the same, were very different. We will live with the difference but someone may not care for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice planter Good quality. However, two of them have mysteriously turned a more yellow shade of cream and don't match the others.
Date published: 2014-09-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality I had read mixed reviews about this item but I was pleased. I got the cream colored medium and am using it indoors. Largish planters can be really expensive; this one seems like a great value.
Date published: 2014-07-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect pots for yard Despite many of the mixed reviews, the pots arrived in perfect condition and so far are doing fine on our front porch (uncovered). They are a great design, good weight, and great color choices
Date published: 2014-06-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautifully designed, But I love the design of these planters and purchased 5 total to decorate an outdoor deck which is exposed to the hot Georgia Summer. I read the reviews before buying them with hopes that they could handle outdoor weather. Well as I said earlier they are absolutely beautiful but they are a bit fragile if you look closely at the material used to build them. I don't think they would hold up after a heavy rain so I have decided to keep them indoors to use with fake plants because I think if I plant real plants in them with dirt and water they would not last long like a cheaper outdoor planter I could have purchased from any gardening store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful pot. Love the design. I would recommend buying this pot. I ordered the medium size and it was a beautiful pot for the price.
Date published: 2014-06-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful but Short Life! These planters were beautiful and initially I was very pleased with the look and quality of the product. Over time [approximately 2-3 years], they faded and all the paint cracked off in different places. I would not recommend these planters in a hot climate with full sun. Perhaps on a shaded, protected patio only. I was disappointed after spending $450. to have them last such a short time period. I have a lot of items from Ballard and generally I am very happy -- this was my first disappointment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks better in photo This planter in person looks cheap and too shiny. Not the authentic "faux" French pot I was hoping for.
Date published: 2014-07-04
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall, too expensive This pot is very pretty and it was just right for my needs. However, the paint is so thin that the under-shell color shows through. It was also quite expensive for the product. Nevertheless, I will keep it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Colors don't match I had been thinking about purchasing these for months and finally pulled the trigger. I was so excited about and when they arrived the colors were a few shades off and the planters didn't match. Also I felt the paint job on them was sloppy. Also, I don't think they are worth the price of what they cost. Very disappointed.....
Date published: 2013-09-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Recommended with reservations Out of the four planters that I ordered (two large, two medium), one of the large ones was delivered broken. I exchanged it for another one and it arrived with a crack in the base. We went ahead and planted our flowers, however, within weeks the crack grew larger and the base broke off. I then order a replacement for that one. When its replacement arrived, it was a different shade than the other three. The two smaller planters are doing fine, but I've only had them for a couple of months. Overall, not a great experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good construction but color does not match We ordered another Toulon planter to replace one of a pair bought more than a year ago which fell apart. Unfortunately, the new one, though labeled "cream" like the original ones, does not come close to the same color. The new one is better constructed though we can't have them side by side now due to the color difference.
Date published: 2013-06-23
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful for awhile I love the design and style of these planters...AND the lightness of them. Unfortunately they fade...My green ones are now a bluish green on one side from direct sun. And if you rub too hard to clean them the finish comes beware...they don't stay beautiful for long.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from faded badly i bought four large gold urns and all 4 have badly faded, its too bad because i really liked them
Date published: 2013-06-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from this planter is beautiful I hesitated to order this planter because of the cost and one of the reviews but decided it was too beautiful not to own. Within 3 days the planter had chipped and cracked along the base.The Customer Service dept was very good getting back to me about the return or exchange,but it still is a disappointment.
Date published: 2013-06-11
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Performance I have to agree with other reviewers. At this price point, the durability of these planters is poor and not worth the cost. Although beautiful, the coating chipped and cracked almost immediately under very moderate use. Once damaged, water entered behind the coating and the product rapidly deteriorated. These planters would probably work indoors as decorative items but are not suitable for outdoor use where water, weather and actual plants are involved.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't last more than 2 seasons I am an avid gardener and love to beautify my home with flowers. When I first displayed these planters they were beautiful. After season 1 the paint started to chip (one would think that a planter should uphold the regular wear and tear of watering). Season 2 - I spray painted over the chips/imperfections. At the end of season both planters are completely rotted off their bases. Not what I expect at this price point. Very disappointed.
Date published: 2016-02-03
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for the Great Outdoors Initially, the planters looked great and the colors did not disappoint; however, I soon realized they didn't fair very well outdoors. I purchased pairs in every color for my back patio and 1 set of the Ivory color for my front entrance. I put several coats of polyurethane on all the planters to ensure the paint / color would last a bit longer and to prevent the paint from crackling. Unfortunately, the once rich colors soon faded in the sun and the planters got really brittle and started to chip - most of the rims were split and broke way from the planter. They were delicate to begin with as I had to use heavy epoxy to hold them together within a month or so after being out doors. The 2 Ivory planters in the front of the house faired a bit better b/c there is more shade from the overhang of larger trees.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Different Dye Lots I ordered the large and medium cream Toulon Planters. About a month later I decided I wanted another medium cream planter. It's color is remarkably different than the first ones I received...more yellow than cream. Very disappointed. I would only recommend this product if you are sure of the quantity you want so that it can be delivered from the same lot.
Date published: 2014-07-17
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality I have been a Ballard shopper for years, and this is the first time I have received a product I wish I had not ordered. I ordered two of the pots to flank my front door. They are not even close to being the same color, and the "antiquing" looks as if a child either scratched them with a razor blade or colored on them with a pencil. I am very disappointed. It is such a hassle to return something so big to the sender that I am going to keep them, but I am going to have to completely refinish them. I know I can do a better job than the maker, and I am nowhere near a professional at such things. I knew these were "iffy" because of other reviews, but I thought my products would be different. They are not. Ballard, I am disappointed in you!
Date published: 2014-05-02
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fading I purchased two of the large off white planters and they looked great last year, but now are entirely too faded and do not look the same. Very disappointing.
Date published: 2013-05-05
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but not for outdoors I purchased 3 of these planters. They are beautiful. They are not meant for use outdoors. The planters I purchased faded and cracked the first season. These planters are for indoor use only. Avoid placing them in the sun or they will fade.
Date published: 2016-05-28
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product Defective - cracking - Do not Buy Although, I love Ballard Designs and the design of the Toulon Planter, after 2 years, it starting cracking around the rim. I was shocked when the planter was moved on the deck to find a 5 inch crack in the back of this planter. I bought this product to avoid cracking and breakage from ceramic pots. Im completely disappointed and would not buy this type of material again. When I called customer service, they were very nice but said the warranty had expired. I should have called earlier if only I had known.
