Handcrafted Planters

Handcrafted Planters

Our range of wooden planters are sturdily made from FSC approved timber, i.e. it is from sustainable sources and environmentally friendly. The capacity of the containers is large allowing for a high density of planting, but you should ideally still add water retaining crystals and slow release fertiliser to ensure that your displays will thrive even if you miss a day’s watering. You should also feed weekly from early July with Tomorite or similar high potassium fertiliser to be certain your flowers will be at their very best until the cold weather does its worst. Our products cover a wide range of shapes and sizes, and some even have integral trellis so that you can grow shorter climbing plants or tall leggy plants that will need some support. Containers with integral trellis make an elegant statement when used on a roof garden or balcony, or even patio. They can hide areas you do not want to be immediately visible and can be used to block pathways or create those hidden areas that add so much to the character of a garden. The trellises are naturally of limited height so climbers must be chosen with care, things like miniature climbing roses, patio clematis or peas are the type of plants you should be looking at. All our planters come ready assembled. Window boxes need special care in their mounting. They should always be a few inches below window level, and if the window opens outwards they will need to be lower, think about how high you plants will grow and how little damage you want to cause when you open the window! Steel brackets should be used every 45 cms (18 ins) and firmly screwed both to the wall and to the window box itself. We would suggest that if you are thinking of putting a window box above where people might walk, it is perhaps a job for a professional. Remember the main points for a good display: Good quality compost Add slow release fertiliser and water retaining crystals Water daily, maybe even twice daily during heat waves Feed once a week with high potash fertiliser from July onwards Dead head regularly
