Whatever size garden you have, from the tiniest patch of lawn to the largest estate, planters are an essential way of keeping your plants organised and looking great all year round.
Aside from the usual pot-type planters, troughs are a welcome addition to any open space, allowing you to place several plants together to create a stunning look.
Whether you want to grow petunias or geraniums, begonias or sweet peas, you can rest assured they will look even more beautiful placed side-by-side, where their colours and textures can intermingle. You can either blend similar colours for a pleasing effect, or place contrasting colours next to each other for a bolder statement - the choice is yours.
Troughs are a fantastic choice for every garden, and they’re so versatile, too. You can either fill the trough itself with compost, and plant directly into it, or place your plants still in their pots into the trough. This allows you to change plants more easily, according to the season and your whim! If you want to use pots within your trough, but don’t want them to be seen (because, let’s face it, they can look a little ugly), you could cover them up with compost and no-one will be any the wiser.
One of our most popular vintage-style troughs is the Lucas collection. Decorated with an attractive geometric design, these troughs come in a set of three so you can dot them round the garden, space them along a pathway or cluster them together - wherever you put them they are sure to stand out.
Beautifully made in a sturdy and hardwearing zinc alloy, these troughs have been given a lovely grey metallic, antique style finish. There’s no need to worry about what they’ll look like in years to come, because they have been specially designed to age naturally over time, whatever the British weather throws at them.
The set of Lucas troughs comes in three different sizes: large (L 41cm, W 20.5cm, H 15cm), medium (L 36cm, W 17.5cm, H 14cm) and small (L 31.5cm, W 14cm, H 11.5cm). This variety in size allows you to create a stunning display of plants with the minimum of expertise and the least amount of effort.
For added convenience, these Lucas troughs come with sturdy handles at either end, so you can easily pick them up and transfer them from place to place as required. This could be because you need to reposition plants from a shady part of the garden to a sunnier place - or it could simply be because you fancy a change of look.
We’re sure you’ll love these Lucas troughs, and that they will give you years of pleasure in your garden, attracting admiring glances from friends and neighbours alike.
