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 - 

Small: H17 x W60 x D16.5cm Large: H23 x W70 x D23cm

Perfect as required. Fantastic company’s

Ordered various Large plant troughs for the Garden and came well packaged and in good time. Decided to change the size and Garden Trading organised returns via DPD and refunds immediately. Very helpful and friendly customer service attendant. Would definitely recommend

Looks pretty on my window ledges. They are made of a brittle substance, I hope they last the winter frosts. Very happy with my purchasing experience. Lots of eco/paper/card packaging, some plastic bubble wrap used which I guess was necessary due to fragility of product. Most satisfied with product, service and delivery.

The bit I liked the most was the eco friendly paper/card packaging. I understand the need for the use of plastic bubble wrap - because of the fragile nature of the window boxes, however would prefer this to have been eco if possible. I also enjoyed the timely delivery and communication and choice about the delivery. Good stuff 👍.

Look good and well made..

Actually it was not Garden Trading but your courier - I was not informed that the delivery would be on a pallet and so had not made provision for its receipt - although someone was available they were not in a position receive goods they could not manage a pallet. I did not receive a call warning me of the delivery time (or indeed date) and so a a result the pallet was delivered to my drive and left unattended with access to the street until I could return from work.

Good quality planters and look great to create a low barrier wall with plants in. Just a little disappointed that they were wrapped in so much plastic/polystyrene. There are biodegradable alternatives.

Great service. Planters arrived very promptly.

Really good quality product

Not a good experience at all - we love Garden Trading products but DPD are a different matter - on 3 occasions they said "Sorry we missed you" even though they hadn't attempted delivery. phoned the DPD local office in Liverpool numerous times and despite several promises items not delivered - finally got 2 of the packages delivered and the other one 2 days later - not the best experience.

The pots are lovely just let down by the delivery due to Garden Trading not putting my address on the parcel!

My pots were delivered on a huge truck, I live in a very small windy lane and I might have reconsidered delivery if I’d known a big pallet truck was bringing the items. I’m also surprised the items made it to my house seeing as my house name was not on the parcel, only the name of the road so I was lucky the truck driver was able to track the parcel to the right address and I have checked my order and my house name was on the order so I’m not sure what went wrong!

Beautiful - GT just need to tweak packaging!

I now have four of these lovely Bathford troughs which look fab planted with evergreens. Delivery was swift too. Only minor gripe is the packaging, about 20% of which is unrecyclable polystyrene (even if it’s now wrapped in polythene to stop it shedding). Garden Trading - please find an alternative!
