Spring is well and truly here, and I just love it! The days are getting longer, the evenings are lighter and my garden has come alive with new growth and flowers… Everything seems vibrant, colourful and fresh – and its really made me want to spend as much time as possible in the garden!

My garden, coming into leaf and bloom…

I recently received two medium personalised Plantabox Crates for my children, and they are now out of their boxes and waiting to be planted! We’ve been to the Garden Centre and both children have chosen their plants – I’ll do another post in a week or two showing the boxes planted and looking beautiful! (We’ve had a couple of minor frosts in the last week and are waiting for guaranteed frost free nights!)

Plantabox Crates

Pretty in pink…

The medium personalised wooden crate planter is easy to move around, and my children see it as their own perfect mini garden! The crate is 40cm x 31cm x 14cm, professionally treated and coloured, made of sustainable FSC pine and can be personalised with 20 characters per line.

Forget-Me-Not Blue…

It includes a planting liner and came via secure tracked delivery – the process from ordering to receiving couldn’t have been more straightforward and efficient! The packaging was brilliant too!

I can’t recommend Plantabox enough! Do pop over and take a look at their website, there are lots of lovely things to choose from, and they make great gifts!
