These are some of the most interestingly designed planters in our range. The unique and aesthetically appealing shape of the beehive planter seems to make it more ornamental than functional – however there have been cases where our customers have successfully grown plants out of them. Although finding a way to grow something out of these planters while they are standing might prove to be a logistically challenge, even for the most experienced gardener – it is certainly not so much of a challenge to grow something out of them while they are turned on their side. When placed in a small hole that you have dug to fit their shape, they can planted with all manner of shade loving creeping or crawling plants. further to this, the beehive might provide a very pleasant looking shelter for local wildlife as well as flora and fauna.
These come in a terracotta finish, although upon request, we can have them made up in other finishes. Being made of lightweight fibreglass, these planters are far more suited to being placed out in the elements than planters made of the authentic terracotta. Where real terracotta will crack in the frost and become brittle with age, fibreglass has a considerable longevity and a resistance to ultra violet, the frost and the adverse effects of the weather.
The colour of these planters is warm and neutral – this will allow them to fit in with most garden designs whether clean and contemporary or traditional and chaotic.
As we mentioned at the beginning, these planters seem almost more suited to being ornamental rather than functional, so why not consider some alternative options for implementation in your garden design? For example, these planters, given their size and relatively watertight state are perfect for making water features. In a world where the population of bees is dwindling daily, place a beehive planter in your garden, and hopefully it will stand as more of an encouragement than a memoria.
