The Basic Range – full and half rounds, border guards

This is a range of plant supports designed for perennials of all sizes, including shrub roses and anything that gets a bit ‘droopy’ as the season lengthens or it rains and blows a lot. All the basic plant supports have 3 legs and 2 hoops. They all have a small lower hoop and larger upper hoop and will stack when not in use.

The flush design means there is no danger of them poking you in the eye when you are gardening. They are unobtrusive in the border, focusing the eye on the beauty of your plants rather than your plant supports.

Border Guard

The border guards keep plants from drooping over paths and edges. Hardy geraniums and nepetas (cat mint) benefit from them in our garden.

The Rose Tower - Plant Supports - Jonne Ceserani - The Gardeners Blacksmith

Plant Towers

Our straight-sided plant towers come in different heights and diameters. The largest is suitable for climbing roses, honeysuckles and vigorous climbing annuals is 2m high with 5 legs and 5 hoops of 400mm diameter. Smaller versions with 5 legs and 4 hoops are available at 1.5m high and diameter of 300mm and 400mm. These work well for clematis and less vigorous climbers.

Each tower has 350mm in addition to the stated height to allow for secure placement into the ground.

These straight-sided towers work well because climbers grow with more breadth as they get taller, rather than tapering to a point! It’s so fiddly and frustrating trying to tie in your flourishing climber to a support that is too narrow.

Prices: 2m high £85.00, 1.5m high 400mm diameter £60; 1.5m high 300mm diameter £55.

Galvanising add £30. Shotblasting and powder coating add £60.

Each tower is made to order so we can accommodate any specific measurements you require.

The Clematis Pyramid - Jonne Ceserani - The Gardeners Blacksmith

Plant Pyramids

The Plant Pyramid is a 1800mm high, vertical flat topped pyramid with 4 legs and 5 hoops for any climbing plant such as clematis or sweet peas. The bottom hoop is 400mm and the top 300mm. It is deliberately a skeletal structure to minimise impact over the winter. Narrow grooves in each hoop allow you to run vertical strings on each side to which the clematis will happily cling. When it is pruning time cut the strings and shear to the desired height. This will be very easy and avoids having to disentangle lots of clingy growth.

Price: £85

Galvanising add £30. Shotblasting and Powder Coating add £60.
