Slug-proof planters launched

Oxford Planters have announced the launch of a new collection of planters, seats and tables designed by UK garden designer Andrew Fisher Tomlin and handcrafted in their Cotswolds workshop.

The new planter has been short-listed for the  ‘RHS Chelsea Product of the Year 2016’ and will be available for the first time at the show.

"The Stud Collection" has a copper studded band that as a design detail proved effective in repelling slugs and snails during trials.

Fisher Tomlin said: "We wanted to use traditional gardening methods in a new, stylish and high performing planter that were also capable of withstanding the challenges of an urban climate."

The new collection is made from Accoya & Medite Tricoya Extreme which comes with a 50 year guarantee.

Sarah Pierce of Oxford Planters said: "we know that designers like Andrew are very demanding of the quality of product that they source. We wanted to develop his designs using a gold standard in sustainable timber and a product that we have lots of experience in using."

The collection is one of the first outdoor furniture ranges to use the new sustainable materials and has been developed to include a range of 2 and 3-seater benches, side and coffee tables, is available in a wide range of colours and all include the signature copper studded band.
