It’s probably fair to say that most of us are happy to see the end of 2020 and to welcome in 2021 as a fresh start and a time to move forward.
The New Year is also the perfect time for In Bloomers to start planning and preparing their entry into the 2021 Britain in Bloom competition, sadly postponed last year due to the pandemic. Which means that eager In Bloomers have had even longer hatch their creative plans.
Amberol’s self-watering planters are a great addition to planting schemes, complementing flower beds and a range of surroundings from concrete vistas to parks to town squares. Plus, they have many useful features, including:
Protection against the cold - Amberol’s range of self-watering planters are double-walled, offering additional insulation and protection against extreme temperatures, so they are suitable for outdoor use all year round. This makes them the perfect spot for planting spring flowering plants as well as summer bedding plants, shrubs, veggies and even small trees.
Versatility – Amberol’s self-watering planters come in a range of styles, sizes, shapes and even colours. From above-eye-level wicker effect hanging baskets, to large floor standing planters to barrier baskets; there is a self-watering planter suitable for every location.
A sense of history – Amberol’s heritage range has proven very popular with customers wanting to combine an authentic classic look with the durability, practicality and sustainability of using recyclable polyethylene. Wood-effect Barrel Planters modelled on Hogshead whisky barrels come in three different sizes, while the Heritage Stone Trough looks just like the real thing and is just as hardy – but at a fraction of the weight, much easier to move!
We never cease to be amazed by the creativity and inventiveness of our clients who year after year come up with a range of exciting display ideas. And one of the strengths of In Bloomers is that they rarely mind sharing! So, if you are looking for inspiration, take a look at our Facebook or Twitter pages. Or join our popular Britain in Bloom Buzz Facebook group – a great network for sharing tips and ideas
Another great source of ideas is our ‘Inspired Plant-Ups’ guide. The downloadable booklet contains a range of colourful examples of different planting schemes sent in by Amberol customers, as well as offering advice and handy tips for planting, design and displays. It can be downloaded for free here.
And don’t forget, we always love to see the results of all your hard work. Anyone can submit a photo of an Amberol self-watering planter to our customer gallery with regular prizes of £200 awarded to the winning submission. See our Facebook or Britain in Bloom Buzz pages to vote on this month’s photo. The closing date for voting is 3rd January 2021.
