     Balcony Gardener Gabion Planter

    Balcony Gardener Gabion Planter

    Indoor bulbs can be top-heavy, so The Balcony Gardener’s pebble cubes are a good solution to this problem. The contemporary planters are miniature versions of the ‘gabions’ which are seen in landscaping.  The wire mesh containers are sold empty or filled with stones or Welsh slate. Depending on size, the central recess will house anything from a tea light candle to a large flower pot. Prices start at £19.95 and rise to £49 from the Balcony Gardener. Buy them empty to save on postage.
