A large garden planter isn't just a great way to add some variety to your beds, it also makes the perfect home for your plants. Shrubs, vegetables and fruit plants are all at home in raised garden planters, which boast better drainage and provide a barrier to protect your produce from pests. For the very best growing results, you can fill your planters with the soil that’s perfectly suited to your plants.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I put in the bottom of a planter for drainage?

We recommend using broken pieces of terracotta pots, newspaper or some kind of plastic lining to put in the bottom of your planter. These materials are good for allowing proper drainage and preventing the compost or soil getting clogged.

How do you line a planter box?

Firstly, measure the base of the planter box and cut your fabric to size. Then, lay the fabric inside the box and secure it using a staple gun. Make sure that the lining reaches up the sides of the box to avoid any soil or compost escaping through holes in the woodwork.
