Longbottom Wooden Garden Planters

The Longbottom wooden planter is a trough style wooden planter in the style of the Lichfield. It is made from lengths of 4.5x4.5cm planed Scandinavian red pine or British Oak which are joined and glued. The interlocking nature of the design gives an attractive and extremely strong garden planter which, in the case of pine, is then finished with a good quality, plant friendly preservative in either golden brown or clear. The Oak is left natural or given an oil finish. The internal walls of these planters are now painted with a waterproof  paint sealant.

For impact with Planters be creative

Be creative with your garden planters, using colour and positioning to create accents to create accents and add interest and structure to the overall design. Or add impact to a planter collection with a single splash of bold contrasting colour.
You can use accents most effectively to add a bright sparkle to a main colour scheme. For instance, if you decide on cool blue and mauve arrangements for your summer planters, a splash of bright orange from a zinnia would provide the highlight. At other times of the year, when there are fewer  flowers to choose from, and keeping colour in a display is more difficult, a dot of an accent colour will add interest to an arrangement of evergreens. Do not be tempted to overdo accents; too much of a contrasting colour only succeeds in confusing the eye and bewildering the mind.
Plants for your  Planters
To help you select the best plants for your planters. Here is a list of two hundred plants, with pictures,  for planters listed by colour & season.  

Positioning Planters for effect

For dramatic impact, include only a few accent plants, restricting the too about a fifth of the overall scheme at most. To avoid a display looking bitty, it is best to restrict yourself to one accent colour. For example, creamy white or buttery yellows against the background of evergreens.

pairs to flank an entrance or similar focal point. However, a single accent planter, carefully positioned, can  act as a pivot in any garden design. Try placing a planter centrally at the edge of a patio and plant it to echo a dominant tree, or shrub or a colour scheme farther back in the garden. By adding this accent in the foreground you will create interest with alternative horizons and also emphasise your favourite existing features.
Planting several matching planters with the same combination of plants and placing them along a path or in disparate areas of the garden will lead the eye from one to the next, highlighting and drawing together the areas you have chosen. If you have a large garden, an effective to do this is to use attention grabbing planters that will have an instant impact, even when viewed from a distance.
