Great Christmas presents for a gardener — Timber wooden garden planters

We don’t often think of winter as the prime time for gardening, but it’s a good time to get things ready ahead of spring and plan out what you intend to do with that wonderful outdoor space. It’s a great time for rethinking planters and what flowers and plants to put in place for next summer; that’s why wooden planters are such a fantastic Christmas gift.


We’re proud of our range of planters, which are built to last and look fantastic in any garden. Here are our suggestions on planters that would put a smile on the face of anyone with green fingers this Christmas:

Placed in the corner of a garden, this bench and planter can provide a great place to sit and entertain guests, while plants in the planter sections will bring the garden to life! The planter box sections of the bench can also be used for storage and further seating instead, as they come with lids, so it’s an adaptable piece of garden furniture perfect for any garden.

We also have three and two tier planters too.
