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.

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 of differing heights and diameters are available (see below). These work well for clematis, less vigorous climbers and large shrub roses. We’re very happy to accommodate the dimensions of your special plant so please ask for what you want.

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 x 400mm diameter £85.00
  • 1.5m high x 600mm diameter £70
  • 1.5m high 400mm diameter £60
  • 1.5m high 300mm diameter £55
  • 1.3m high x 500mm diameter £60

If you prefer not to have a rusting finish, there are three alternative finishes. The prices shown are in addition to the cost of the tower:

  • galvanised finish, from £40
  • shot blasted and powder coated finish, from £70
  • galvanised and powder coated, from £80.
