Longwood Garden Planters

(4 customer reviews)

Create a miniature veg or flower garden using our environmentally friendly, all-weather Longwood Planter with wood grain effect.

  • Available in varying lengths – 1200mm &1800mm
  • Frost and rot resistant
  • Handmade in the UK from recycled plastic

Choose the Longwood recycled plastic planter over a timber container and you will not go wrong. Made from recycled plastic that would otherwise be sent to landfill, the planter looks like wood with a superior grain effect finish but lasts longer, is weather-resistant and also encourages better growing conditions.

  • If you're thinking of adding a plaque to your furniture, you can also join our new My Place and Story service. This service adds a QR code alongside your plaque or engraving.  When this code is scanned by a smartphone, it'll take the visitor to a web page that gives more background and history to the person or place the bench is remembering. It's a great way to expand and say more than you can on a plaque, and really tell somebody the full story. Want to know more about how this service works?

Requiring little maintenance, the planter can be left out in all weathers including the harshest of frosts. It even keeps the soil warmer than conventional planters due to the thickness of the plastic used.

The Longwood is perfect for a multitude of locations and comes in various lengths to fit any space. Being made from heavy plastic ensures it is sturdy and can withstand strong winds. From parks, gardens and allotments to holiday parks, village greens, town centres and school gardens, the Longwood Planter is the go-to choice for bringing bursts of seasonal colour to outdoor locations. It is also ideal for seaside promenades and other coastal locations as salt does not cause the plastic to corrode.

The Longwood Planter is suitable for growing a small vegetable garden, adding early spring colour with cheery displays of bulbs, brightening spaces throughout the year with flowers, or planted with box trees to define borders.

    Jane W said,

    I just want to say thank you for a first class service once again. I have just received my small Hopton coffee table and two Derwent chairs from you. They are so well made. I already have a Wirksworth seat and a large Longwood planter. I love them all. When speaking to anyone on the phone they are always friendly, helpful and informative. Thanks to all at TDP.

    Our planters from yourselves have been in for a year now and are looking great. We swapped to your Longwood’s like for like with our old wooden Planters and they’ve worked a treat.

    They really work on the estate and in the area down the end are a great solution to parking as we have added fluorescent strips along the top of the planters.

    Our gardeners have done a great job of planting evergreen hedges in them so they’re looking great throughout the year.

    When we replaced two picnic tables outside Cromford Fish Bar in Derbyshire with TDP Springbanks we added a Longwood planter.

    “They are a vast improvement and look very stylish in black”, said Mr Gould, the owner.

    We had a local gathering to unveil the Dale Benches and Logwood planters which are now installed. Very pleased.
