Stewart Garden’s Lead Effect Planters – sensational focal points in any garden, especially with roses

Stewart Garden’s Lead Effect Planters are ideal for creating your garden’s focal point, especially when paired with colourful shrubs such as divine David Austin Roses.

These timeless, silver hand finished planters are lightweight, beautiful, affordable and available in four sizes.

They can be planted with roses, herbs, low hedging and small trees such as buxus and bays.

Real lead planters are scarce, extremely heavy and can be costly. 

Gavin Wray at Stewart Garden said: “Whether you use them in rows, pairs or as a single feature, the Lead Effect Planters will transform your garden, patio or front door space, giving stunning focal points every time. They’re proving really popular as a new style alternative to lead planters They’re competitively priced, well designed and great quality.”

David Austin Roses says: “Roses are wonderful plants for growing in pots, urns and other containers. Growing roses in pots allows you to have fun with your garden, enabling flexibility and experimentation with the minimum amount of labour.”

How to plant roses in your Stewart Garden Lead Effect Planter

Firstly, gather everything together. You’ll need:

·        fertilizer

·        mulch

·        pruning shears

·        gardening gloves

·        compost or rose planting mix

·        a spade

·        a shovel

·        a filled watering pot

Next, choose your roses. Any variety of rose will make a beautiful addition to your garden. However, it’s a good idea to check which roses will grow best in your region. Ask at your local garden centre. Container-grown roses will already have flowers, so will look beautiful from the moment you plant them. They're usually sold in 1-gallon (3.8 litre) sizes or larger. Be careful if you grow these in true springtime, as they’re vulnerable to frost.

Finally, choose your planting site. This will determine the fate of your roses. Find a place that gets at least five to six hours of direct sunlight every day, ideally in the morning. If they're going to be in a particularly windy area, place your planters close to a form of shelter such as a wall or a fence.
