The Tallboy wooden garden planter

Tallboy Wooden Garden Planter


    The Tallboy, is one of our tall planters, and adds height and presence to your planting dispay.  The floor of the planter is 30cm from the top of the 'tower', so you don't need to fill the whole planter with planting medium, although the floor height can be adjusted on request. 
These tall planters are made from lengths of 4.5cmx4.5cm Scandinavian red pine (the best quality pine) which are joined, glued and treated with a high quality, plant friendly and water repellent preservative. The Tallboy weighs over 25kgs so it very stable even in strong wind. The internal walls of these planters are now painted with a waterproof  paint sealant.
Planter Dimensions: 35x35x80(h)cm

A Visual feast  in Planters

A group of well-chosen planter grown vegetables can produce  a stunning display, since many common  vegetables  have surprisingly pretty foliage.  The feathery leaves of carrots, tall dark  plumes  of blue sweet corn  and green-maroon foliage of beetroot are as pleasing as those  of many  herbaceous perennials.
You can also have  fun when planting vegetables  in planters.  Forget the neat drilled lines of the kitchen  garden. When vegetables are going to be grown in full view  -  on the patio  or balcony, for example  -  you can experiment  with original ways  of growing them. The dramatic  foliage  of a courgette always  commands  attention, but it looks doubly arresting  leaning  tipsily out of a slanted  wooden planter.
Beans  are another plant that planter gardeners can have  fun with. Both beans and peas are easy to grow in planters and offer pretty  flowers  before the crop ripens. Dwarf and green  beans  can be left to sprawl over the side of a planter.
Climbing beans, peas and  mangetout will need

support.The traditional solution is to grow them up a wigwam of canes - one for  each plant - pushed firmly into the compost. But for a more entertaining effect use a small planter grown tree, or a sturdy sunflower, as a living support  for your crop.Keep picking peas and beans when young, to maintain a steady supply. Sweetcorn is another  vegetable whose stately looks recommend it to the patio. As you will want togrow at least three cobs, giving four to five heads each, it will need a substantial planter. Don't be tempted to remove the secondary shoots that

appear at the base of sweetcorn plants;  they are essential for healthy development and stability. The cobs are ready  to eat when the sap in the kernels is the colour  and consistency of milk.
When growing  more than one kind of vegetable in a planter, select types which develop at the same rate and are either harvested a few leaves at a time, like spinach  or Swiss  chard,  or are harvested at the same  time, such as quick-maturing carrots, baby beetroots and
mini-turnips.  That  way the ornamental look of your planting will not be spoilt.
Growing root vegetables
You can grow  root vegetables in all sorts of planters.  Round and baby varieties of carrot need only a few centimetres  of Compost so may be cultivated in troughs; a long rootedd variety will need a deeper root run.
Choose varieties  that mature quickly, such as the carrot' Early Nantes 5'or Beetroot 'Pronto'- so you can raise a second crop in the same season.  Or choose  carrot 'Autumn King' which takes all summer  to develop,  giving you the maximum display of foliage.
