Chelsea Wooden Garden Planters (Cedar)


     Chelsea wooden garden planters are a more formal, Art Deco-ish style. Shown here made from British Grown Western Red Cedar. Constructed from 50mm x 100mm timbers. Jointed and glued, the Chelsea, when finished, is either left in its natural state or given a coating of teak oil. Western Red Cedar has natural preservative qualities so needs no extra finish but the oil assentuates the grain and deepens the colour. The internal walls of these planters are now painted with a waterproof  paint sealant.

Growing Plants in Planters


Growing in planters is a very controlled  method of raising plants. Each plant, or group of plants, can be given "exactly  the right type of soil and amounts of  water and food. The situation  chosen for the placing  of the planter  must be taken into account. When selecting the plants. Sun or shade , exposed or sheltered, very cold or more temperate, are all factors  that can make or break a display in a very short period. The majority  of plants like to grow and flower in sunny or partially  sunny positions. A smaller number enjoy the shade, and only a few plants are happy  in very exposed  places.  The elements are harsher on plants in planters, than on their counterparts  grown in richly cultivated garden beds or borders.  Heat and winds dry out planters and plants in planters  quickly, rain does not easily reach their limited soil area, and extreme cold can freeze the planter and rootball solid.  However,  you can control the watering, and make sure that you place the plants that are adversely affected by winds in

sheltered  positions. If you live in a cold area, avoid growing the more  tender plants, or if you are determined to, take measures  to protect them from frost. You can wrap vulnerable  specimens in sacking  or a good layer of bracken and  if space permits, sink the planter  into the ground  for the winter. The best solution, particularly  for plants like marguerites  and standard fuchsias, is to take them into a greenhouse, conservatory,  or

A DESERVING  SITE
Planter  plantings have the benefit of being raised above ground level which gives them greater importance and visual impact, but you should still make sure the plants are being seen and enjoyed to their best advantage, without making them  inaccessible  for day to day maintenance. One of the most enjoyable pastimes is eating outside, so grow planters of sweetly  scented plants close to the garden table: lavender, tobacco  plants, lilies' night-scented stock, aromatic-leaved pelargoniums, or climbers such as trachelospermum, datura, summer flowering jasmine or honeysuckle. If you place a planting in front of a fence or a wall, select something that will grow tall and  wide, anything too small will be lost against a large expanse.
