Morgan Griffin
Plughole Planters

They create gorgeous planters by upcycling acrylic baths which would normally end up in landfill. Each one is hand-made. They are ideal for raised bed gardening; courtyards with minimal room; shop fronts and cafés or restaurants; lining for red carpet and VIP events, weddings and special occasions. The planters differ from wood or concrete mainstream offerings, due to the internal bath basin which does not rot, comes complete with drain holes, is fully lined and holds moisture in during hot weather, and maintains a warmer soil temperature.
