Welwyn Garden Planters


The Welwyn is a contemporary style planter that would not look out of place in a more traditional setting, and is constructed from British grown Western red cedar.
Western red cedar is a very stable timber, contains natural oils that act as a preservative so requires no additional finish although you can paint or stain it if you wish to.
The corner posts are 75mm square with 25mm thick transverse planking that are jointed, glued and hand finished. The internal walls of these planters are now painted with a waterproof  paint sealant.

Create conditions for lime lovers in Planters

 Some plants, although  they will tolerate  a wide  range  of soil types, do best and last longest in alkaline  soils rich in lime, and in full sun.
If  your  soil is acid, boggy  or shady, you will enjoy more success with the lime-lovers if you grow them in planters. In the wild, many lime lovers grow in open. free-draining areas, such as the chalk downs  or, alpine meadows.  They include flowers such as clematis,  delphiniums, peonies, stocks and wallflowers,  and shrubs like arbutus,  broom, buddleja, Choisya, Daphne, holly  and juniper.  Many alpines  and grey or woolly leafed, 'Mediterranean'  plants are also lime-lovers. and all these  plants  can be successfully  grown  in planters.
Bulbs and herbaceous perennials can be combined  in all manner of arrangements. And low-growing grey  -leafed plants, and junipers,  can look great  when they are close-planted  in one planter  as a collection.
However, shrubs tend to look  best if they are planted singly. If carefully pruned  and trained, they will thrive in their planter for several years without replanting. If you feel you would  like to liven them up with a little extra colour

at different times of the year,  you could add some pinks or perennial  wallflowers  to the planter.Plants that will last only one season, like annual dianthus,  ornamental  kale, wallflowers  and ten-week stock s will grow happily in general-purpose  composts, all of which have  lime added during manufacture to balance their acidity.
Soil-based compost also contains lime, and will support  good growth  for the first few months after potting.  In permanently  planted planters you should always use a soil-based  compost  preferably  John Innes  No. 1 or 2 for smaller  plants, and John Innes No.3 for established  ones If your  tap water  is soft, you.

will also need to apply  an annual top dressing of garden lime each   spring  to permanent plantings: allow 55-115g for each  planter depending on its size. Remember that lime is a soil improver, not a plant food, so the planter will still need  fertiliser.
However, you should not mix lime and fertiliser together as this can cause  a reaction  which will release  some of the plant nutrients into the air. To be on the safe side, wait a month  after liming
before top dressing with fertiliser.
Plants that are happy in chalky soils can usually tolerate  fairly dry conditions. Indeed.  they are more likely to be killed  by  water logging than the occasional  drying out. Add  a good drainage layer  to the bottom of your planters and raise them off the ground.
Regular', careful  watering to maintain damp, but not soggy, compost is the best policy. Hard water  is  best  for these  plants, as it helps to maintain alkalinity.  But if your tap water is soft, or if you use rainwater, which  is always soft, the lime will gradually be lost from the compost. In this case you must replace  it by adding  garden lime to the compost once or twice a year.
