March 2016 was a bit of a milestone at Funky Plant Pots, as we celebrated our fifth year of manufacturing and designing architectural quality metal planters.
The idea came from our sister company, Constant Manufacturing, where we were increasingly being asked for one-off and job lots of planters, troughs and window boxes for commercial premises. Then we saw a trend of quotation requests from professional landscapers who need specialist or bespoke planter designs for their domestic customers.
A small site was first launched to host our modest gallery of planters, and from there it has blossomed. This month saw us launch our new website, showcasing some of our work and capabilities.
We’ve had the pleasure of providing planters for RHS show gardens, including the Gold Award Winning Best Small Garden, Heathers in Harmony, at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show (below).
We’ve manufactured some colourful planters that make a statement in any garden.
Some natural copper effect metal window boxes for planting foliage detail in commercial premises.
Then we’ve also done large metal troughs for our wonderful domestic landscaping clients.
Then there has been some branded planters, tall planters, cylindrical planters, waterfall planters, dozens upon dozens of custom shape and designed planters, as well as cube planters to name but a few commissions.
Whatever the shape, size or finish, we have designed, manufactured and delivered over the last year 5 years hundreds of metal planters to customers across Britain, and look forward to the next five years helping make Britain bloom. Thank you to all our customers for your ongoing support.
