With spring and summer finally within touching distance, many of us will be looking forward to blowing away the winter cobwebs by spending some time in the garden. Studies suggest that there are a number of mental and physical health benefits associated with being at one with nature and the act of gardening itself. From encouraging physical exertion to soaking up those vital Vitamin D rays from the sun and simply feeling relaxed and peaceful in the natural environment, it seems like spending time in your garden this year could be a perfect way to stay healthy and happy.
At Callow Retail, we stock a variety of rustic garden supplies including plant pots, holders and display units that are designed to transform your garden into a charming and aesthetically pleasing space - somewhere that you can entertain on those warm summer evenings, somewhere for the kids to safely play and somewhere that you can simply sit outdoors and relax in beautiful surroundings.
One of our most popular items in the garden range is the Rabbit Silhouette Plant Pot - a feature designed to enchant animal lovers and children alike. Crafted from powder coated zinc alloy, the generously sized plant pot is sitting in a stand which has the silhouette of a curious looking rabbit attached. The overall effect, when coupled with a plant in bloom, creates a whimsical, fairytale effect in your garden.
The benefits of powder coated zinc alloy for these types of planter are plentiful. Unlike galvanised products, powder coated zinc dries to leave a smooth, glossy finish that is mostly resistant to scratches and bumps. This hardwearing substance is also environmentally friendly, which will appeal to gardeners who are keen to reduce their carbon footprint. This bunny might be cute, but he is also strong and designed to stand the test of time, without compromising any environmental ethics.
The plant pot can also be used indoors as a striking feature on a windowsill or mantelpiece, with a more modest house plant. Drainage holes can easily be added for outdoor use as well. In fact, this feature is specifically designed to weather naturally in the garden, which will only add to the rustic charm. The Rabbit is just one item in the Silhouette range - you can also add a cat, owl or songbird into your collection.
With dimensions of 11.8cm diameter, 20.5cm width and 31cm height, this is a generously sized item that is interesting enough to use as a standalone feature, or as part of a collection to make up a larger display of garden ornaments. In any case, you can rest assured that this little fellow will add character and charm to your garden and he’ll certainly act as a talking point for guests.
