Planting & Composters
Garden planters and wooden compost bins are environmentally friendly, practical, and useful additions to your garden.
What is a planter?
Wooden garden planters make an attractive feature in a garden or landscaping design. They are a great way of growing plants and vegetables if you are short on space or have accessibility needs that require an alternative solution to ground level planting. Growing in a wooden garden planter or garden trough planter not only makes a stunning feature, it also provides good drainage and excellent conditions for plants to thrive in.Lining your wooden garden planter will prolong its life expectancy by protecting it from direct contact with soil and moisture, which can otherwise cause the timber to rot or split over time.
Wooden Compost Bins
Wooden compost bins are an environmentally friendly way of turning your garden waste and biodegradable food waste such as fruit peel and eggshells into compost. A wooden composter is a useful and attractive item to have in your garden, keeping your compost close by and ready for spreading on plants, flowers, and vegetable plants to encourage growth and improve the soil.
Raised beds are a distinctive addition to gardens of any size, creating extra space that can be utilised for growing anything from delicious vegetables to pretty flowers. They are the perfect solution if you have a concrete or pebbled garden, but also make a great feature in a grassy area or on the edge of a patio. Raised beds are particularly striking when constructed from timber sleepers, check out our range of timber sleepers online or at your local Howarth branch.
Potting benches are a useful workbench for storing planting equipment and for small gardening jobs such as planting seeds or transferring seedlings. A potting bench will allow you to comfortably work in an upright position. They can be placed outdoors or in a shed for extra shelter.
Cold frames are low lever timber boxes topped with a glass lid. They are typically used to grow small plants without using artificial heating. The frame helps to protect smaller plants from predators or frost before planting in the garden. The frame creates the ideal conditions for plants to survive in tougher conditions.
