Living art contemporary garden planterContemporary herb planter idea

Looking for something a bit different to add a new perspective to your garden?

Forget having all your planters positioned on ground level and get yourself some living art frames.

These cleverly designed frames house small plant pots to create a framed art effect hanging to have on a wall or fence outside.

Use them to display pots of your favourite flowers, arranged in graduating heights, some fresh green plants or as a novel way of growing culinary herbs.

The living art frames are made from mild steel and can be powder coated in a choice of colours (black, white, light grey, beige, plate green or shocking pink). There are drainage holes in the base, small holes for light at the top and they come with brackets on the back, ready to be mounted.

The frames are made to order by Cockburn Engineering and cost £75 each.

They’re a great idea for a contemporary garden and would be especially good for those short on space, as you can make the most of planting in any free areas on walls or fences.


Grange herb wheel planter: Create a herb garden

Herb garden design and planting ideas

Herb wheel plante

Nothing quite beats using freshly grown herbs in cooking, rather than dried herbs, and they’re relatively easy to grow on your kitchen windowsill or outside in the garden.

If you’re looking to create a feature herb garden, then here’s an easy way to get going – rather than having to dig out a plot yourself, why not buy this wooden hexagonal planter for your herbs?

The herb wheel planter is made from timber and has six roomy compartments suitable for planting a selection of herbs in.

You do need to do a bit of self-assembly to put it together, but once made, you can use it in a corner of your patio, or even as a small raised bed area in a border.

The Grange herb wheel planter measures 1.07 metres wide and costs £49.95 from Garden Chic.

If this herb planter is a bit too big for your garden, then they also have lots of other wooden planters available that would be perfect for herbs, like this Forest Garden Caledonian tiered raised bed or the Forest Garden cascade planter (this would be particularly good if you have limited space).
