Are you looking for some summer planting inspiration?

Amberol’s photo competitions gives the gardening community the opportunity to share and celebrate their stunning floral displays throughout the different seasons. In this blog, we wanted to share some of the 2023 spring/summer photo entries using Amberol’s self-watering planters for inspiration this year.

Amberol’s photo competition is run twice a year, in the autumn/winter and spring/summer. The photo entries are added to Amberol’s Facebook page, where the public votes the winning photo and receives £300 discount on Amberol’s self-watering planters.

Spring/summer 2023 Photo Entries…

Amberol’s 2023 spring/summer photo competition received the biggest entries to date, with 92 photos submitted featuring the hard work of Britain in Bloom and community groups, businesses, councils and gardeners.

Below is a selection of some of the wonderful summer floral displays in Amberol’s tiered planters, large floor standing planters, as well as barrier baskets and window boxes, up-the-pole baskets and hanging baskets.

Tiered Planter displays…

Amberol’s self-watering tiered planter range has 13 different styles, where you can choose your base, your tier and create your own floral spectacle for local communities to enjoy. Crests and wording plaques can be applied to moulded inset panels, making them ideal for corporate branding and community sponsorship.

Amberol’s Two-tier Barrel Planter is a natural looking barrel planter ideal for a traditional display whilst avoiding the issues normally associated with traditional wooden barrels.

Amberol’s Beehive Tiered Planter - this one is overflowing with a cascade of colourful foliage planting. The Beehive tiered planter guarantees huge impact with glorious floral displays. Available as a 3, 4, 5 or 6-tiered display.

Large Floor Standing Planters…

Amberol's Promenade Planter offers a traditional and rectangular large floor-standing planter design that is ideal for space separation and the enhancement of paved areas.

Amberol's Barrel Planter is a new authentic, natural looking barrel planter and this one is in a green and cream colour. 

Amberol’s Stone Trough has an authentic design and is perfect for heritage locations, blending well into its surroundings. It is self-watering and has been moulded from a genuine stone trough.

Barrier Baskets & Window Boxes…

Amberol’s self-watering barrier baskets and window boxes can be fitted to railings, ledges, building frontages and flat rooftops.

Hanging Baskets and Up-the-pole Baskets…

High-streets and cities are not the same in the summer, without stunning cascades of colour from hanging baskets and up-the-pole baskets. Unlike traditional hanging baskets, Amberol’s self-watering baskets do not leak; they minimise evaporation and only need to be watered once or twice a week. Amberol’s Cup and Saucer hanging basket is a firm favourite with customers, as well as stunning up-the-pole basket displays.

Autumn/winter photo Competition…

Amberol’s autumn/winter photo competition is now open for entries until 31st March 2024.

Entering is very easy; just submit your photos of Amberol’s self-watering planters with your beautiful displays via the online form on the Amberol website.

Your photos can be taken anywhere but must include an Amberol self-watering planter to be eligible for entry. To identify an Amberol planter, just look for the black or green Amberol sticker near the base of the planter.
