We can design and manufacture from a range of metals, offering finishes such as mirror polished or you can pick to finish your planter from a selection of colour choices such as red, white or copper.
Our design team can offer advice on the metal and finish that will work best for your garden, design, surroundings or application as some metals work best outdoors, while others reflect nearby water features better.
We're here to help you through the design and specification process.
We can manufacture planters in stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium and not traditionally, but possible, brass or PVD brass effect.Base Materials
Each metal planter can be given specific finishes from brushed stainless, galvanised and mirror polished. We can even apply a dramatic rusting effect to steel to give it a weathered antique aged look.Material Finishes
If raw metal isn't the finish you're after, then you can pick from a near endless range of powder coated colours giving a matt, gloss or soft textured finish to the metal work. Powder coating also offers an extra layer of weather protection.Colour Chart
We’ve had the pleasure of manufacturing planters for a range of customers and businesses including leading high-street coffee chains, financial institution foyers, award winning landscapers and estates.
Of course not forgetting our commission in 2011; We were approached by a landscaper to manufacture one of our large metal troughs, which ultimately featured within the Gold Award Winning Best Small Garden, Heathers in Harmony, at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
We’ve been working with metal for over 45 years in our large factory based in Manchester, where we utlise advanced metalworking machinery to manufacture your planter to order. We employ over 75 people, and can provide services from concept design to assembly all under one roof.
As we manufacture the planters ourselves it enables us to monitor the quality of the plant pots and offer short production lead-times for your order. We can also make amends to standard designs, vinyl apply corporate graphics or text to the planters and custom design to your requirements.

The season is coming to an end, with our Pheasant Eye Seed’s dropping their seed buds and starting the life cycle again. So for the moment, we’re popping our blog back in the potting shed, awaiting some blooms to arrive next year.
We have recently read a few articles from leading experts in property valuations, and this article by The Telegraph caught our eye about the benefits of a well maintained and easy to maintain garden can affect the valuation of your home.
Our Pheasant’s Eye seeds have been in full bloom over the last two to three weeks. They’re luxurious red petals are unmistakable, and the buds have been progressing through the life cycle and producing grape sized seed pods to help populate the planter next season.
Back in December 2015 we adopted the British Pheasant’s Eye Seed through Kew Garden’s ‘Adopt a Seed’ project. At the same time, we decided to purchase a little seed packet and try to grow our own in a large reception planter, nicknamed Scarlett.
