Free Standing Wooden Plant or Vegetable Manger Trough Crib Planter

Free Standing Wooden Manger Crib Planter Vegetable and Flower Beds

No Nails, No Screws Assembly

4 sizes, 3 lengths 11 variations, constructed uniquely,

Ornamental Wooden Troughs are shallow and a perfect size for salads or a colourful flower display of bedding plants – plants that look warmly colourful and which good cooks love to use for garnishing summer dishes. Salads will grow ideally in these troughs.

We recommend that you use copper tape all round the top lip or round the legs of the shallow mangers as the slugs may beat you to the feast.

These  really pretty free-standing trough planters are constructed in Gardening Works own unique style and extremely easy to assemble. They will not dominate your patio, but will add to the environmmental atmosphere. Each planter is supplied with a liner. These Wooden Manger planters are also ideal for those looking for an accessible gardening product that provides easy access.

Yes, we do sell hundreds of them at Christmas too!
