Your Questions

How heavy is the large fibre clay Bathford Trough? 

It is 8.5kg.

Hello, what is the colour of this product please, the slide pics indicate 1 being black & another being browny grey. Re: BATHFORD TROUGHFIBRE CLAY

The Bathford Troughs are very dark Grey in colour. 

Does the trough have drainage holes?

Yes, the trough has pre-drilled drainage holes. 

Can it be also used as rail planters fixed with appropriate hooks? Or does it need to stand on the floor?

These have not been tested for any other use than floor planters, so unfortunately we would not be able to advise on this. 

Can the Bathford Planter (trough) be made larger than 70cm long? I’m looking for something between 80cm & 100cm. Thank you

Unfortunately, we are only able to supply this item in the size specified on the website.

What size are the pair of bathford troughs? I can’t find out if they are the small size. Many thanks.

The set of 2 Troughs includes 1 of each size -

See above ......................

Planters when received were excellent and just as I'd hoped. Delivery information and timing was not so good with conflicting information given and needing phone calls from me.

Customer rating:


Product meets all my expectations. Time will tell just how well it ages.

Service was prompt, the product well packed and the delivery exceptional. I was contacted by phone to arrange the date and time of delivery. The delivery men struggled to access my property ( big lorry, small road ) but despite the difficulty we're cheerful and happy to unpack the goods in order for me to inspect them before they departed. All in all a very positive experience and a company that I would be happy to do business with in the future.

Excellent quality. Heavy and well made!

Loved the troughs and planter I bought, very good quality and price! I will be ordering more. Service was excellent too, I was advised every step of the way and they used a courier that advises a time slot so you can make sure you are in,or gives you a chance to change to a more convenient time.
All in all a very good experience with this company.
