Oxford Planters have announced the launch of a new collection of planters, seats and tables designed by leading UK designer Andrew Fisher Tomlin and handcrafted in their Cotswolds workshop. The new planter has already been short-listed for the prestigious ‘RHS Chelsea Product of the Year 2016’ and will be available for the first time at the show.
“The Stud Collection” was designed with both practicality and sustainability in mind. Last year’s wet weather contributed to an outbreak of slugs and snails in many gardens but Fisher Tomlin couldn’t find a stylish solution. The result, a series of planters with a copper studded band as a design detail proved effective in repelling the pests during trials. Andrew 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 long-lasting sustainable Accoya® & Medite® Tricoya® Extreme which comes with a 50 year guarantee. Both materials outperform most natural hardwoods and are 100% sustainable. As Sarah Pierce of Oxford Planters says “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.
• Oxford Planters are the leading joinery workshop for outdoor furniture. All their ranges are handmade in the UK by their team of craftsmen.
• Fisher Tomlin & Bowyer provide garden design and horticulture services worldwide from their offices in Wimbledon, London.
• The new collection will be launched at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016 next month.
