Beyond Garden Furniture

We’re a furniture store, not a garden centre or plant nursery – that much is obvious. But you may have noticed that beside our selection of beautiful, sturdy garden furniture we also offer a range of wooden planters. Planters and containers are versatile, useful, and popular all year round and an attempt at container gardening can be made by old and young.

Beyond the square, octagonal, and rectangular wooden planters we offer in our stores, you can also plant up pots, buckets, sinks, old car tyres, pushchairs, or even an old bathtub if the fancy takes you. When it comes to container gardening, you are only limited by your imagination.

So what could you use our beautiful wooden planters for?

  • add an extra touch of cheerful welcome to your front door, either with pots of summer-flowering plants or – more serenely – with a tree or rose bush either side of the front door.
  • Spruce up a somewhat neglected corner of your garden with a splash of colour by planting all manner of containers with colourful annuals and exotic grasses
  • or even create a small, but perfectly formed herb garden or vegetable patch.

Our wooden containers and planters are sturdy and as long-lasting as our garden furniture, but even the strongest wood will react negatively to constant contact with damp soil or wet ground.

Before you plant up your favourite wooden planter, we recommend you fit a liner. Plastic will do very well, provided you poke a few holes in the bottom to allow for drainage. Another useful trick is to keep your wooden planters a few centimeters off the ground. This will let your pots drain better and keep most of the moisture away from the base of the planter.

Of course, you can also use our planters to hide a generic plastic pot from view. Or… you could create a fragrant, colourful seat in a sheltered corner of your garden by combining garden furniture and wooden planters to great effect!
