As summer approaches and the weather gets warmer (hopefully), the facility of Amberol’s self-watering planters to help conserve water really comes into its own. This is particularly true in the current crisis when people are required to minimise any form of activity outside the home.
It’s not often that something is offered for free with absolutely no catch. But that is what we are offering here at Amberol.
Amberol was fortunate to have TV gardening presenter and expert Toby Buckland at the company’s recent 50th birthday celebration. Toby gave a very useful talk on planting up containers using one of Amberol’s planters from their planterware range. Here’s a summary of his advice and some of his top tips.
A line of hanging baskets in full bloom can completely transform a street, creating different layers of colour and visual interest at a range of heights. They complement shop frontages, houses and public buildings beautifully, making them a popular choice when looking for planters to bring an instant face lift to a location.
The annual Amberol photo competition is always hotly contested with entries demonstrating the many stunning floral displays that can be seen all across the UK throughout the summer months. With prizes on offer of up to £1000 worth of Amberol products (choose from self-watering planters, litter bins or planterware), it’s a competition well worth entering.
When we think of floral displays, we tend to think of flower-filled containers placed on the ground. However, by using planters at different levels, including self-watering hanging baskets and Up-the-Pole planters, it’s possible to create a really stunning street scene - as shown here in a photo taken at Gravesend for the Amberol annual photo competition courtesy of Graham Long.
