These decking planters have been hand made in our workshop. We use decking screws and Tanelith E to make the planters stand the test of time in the elements. They also have feet to keep them a bit drier. These are beautiful pots and will complement your garden with a strong, natural and modern look.
There are a range of shapes and sizes to choose from.
Very cold temperatures cause water inside plant cells to freeze. As the water expands cell walls are damaged and leaves look bruised and distorted. When soil freezes, roots are unable to take up water and plants die of drought.
Check plants for life by gently scraping away the bark from ‘Beast-ravaged’ plants. If there’s green sap underneath they’re alive but if they’re brown the cold has killed them.
Don’t rush to dig up plants that have jettisoned their leaves. Scorched evergreens, like bay, will bounce back by June/July while tender woody types such as Salvia ‘Hotlips’, Melianthus major and Tetrapanax ‘Rex’ often re-sprout from the base. When this happens, cut away frosted growth to a healthy new bud to prevent further dieback.

This cold snap is making us eager for the tantalizing spring. The daffodils are out, all we need is the sun!
We are currently building a range of fences and decking planters just for you. There will be a plethora of sizes and designs for you to choose from.
Our fresh-cut timber has finally arrived! The "Beast from the East" set our delivery back a couple of weeks as the freezing conditions swallowed the nation and the roads turned into a Land Rover's dream. We can now craft brand new fencing and planters, ready for you this spring.
Before you buy any plants, check your soil type: is it light and sandy, or heavy and clay? Many plants thrive better in one type than the other. If you’re not sure, take a look at what plants are growing in your neighbour’s garden.
