 Stewart Garden Versailles pewter effect planters - making the beautiful affordable

Stewart Garden has extended its decorative range with the Versailles family of pewter effect planters.

While popular, real lead pewter planters are heavy, expensive and rare. However, with the Versailles range, Stewart Garden has created a collection of three stunning pewter effect planters that are lightweight, visually stunning and affordable.

Versailles echoes design themes often seen in formal, structured garden designs and planting arrangements where geometric shapes, symmetrical lines and neatly clipped edges prevail. They’re ideal for laurels, olive trees, privet, hedging, walkways and door features. The range comprises:

·         70cm Trough: RRP (recommended retail price) £31.99

·         32cm Round: RRP £20.99              

·         32cm Square: RRP £20.99

Great plants to grow with Stewart Garden Versailles pewter effect planters include:

·         Lavender. Colourful and fragrant, lavender creates a wonderful, lasting display. It’s not the hardiest of plants, so a lightweight container such as the Stewart Garden 32cm Round or 32cm Square pewter effect planter allows you to give your lavender the best possible growing conditions. These include six hours of sunshine daily, the right soil and good drainage

·         Ornamental grasses. These look great both as elements of larger design themes and as stand-alone features. The Stewart Garden pewter and lead effect planters combine beautifully with grasses, such as Carex, which will thrive when grown in loam-based compost   

·         Small trees. Ideal for framing entryways or adorning porches, patios and balconies, small trees in containers are highly versatile. Whichever colour you choose, your small tree will look exquisite in the Stewart Garden pewter effect planter. And, as the planters are light, you’ll be able to move them around to give them the right combination of soil, shelter and protection from ground temperature
