Grow your own beautifully

This wooden raised trough was painted and stencilled with outdoor paint and is just the right height for easy picking. Plant both herbs and salad to extend the growing life of the trough, giving you enough fresh goodies to take you through summer and beyond.

Chosen carefully, your mix can also add a vertical element to the display. Herbs such as rosemary and fennel reach for the sky, while salad crops stay low and neat. When you’ve finished picking, you can whip them out and replant with something new so the tasty seasonal show can go on.
