Planters 

Our interpretation of garden planters is wide-ranging and covers anything interesting that could have a plant in it, from old cast iron farm troughs to weathered composition stone pots and lovely Arts and Crafts terracotta pots to recycled galvanised tanks. All have an element of scarcity, even if it is only because they have developed a weathered patination from being outside for a number of years.
