Looking to buy Planter Boxes?
If you're blessed with even the smallest outdoor space, a planter box is a wonderful way to add a natural touch and set the scene for greenery! Offering more room than a window box and a hanging planter, these boxes are made for bursts of floral colour, delicious ranges of fruit, or herbs. As a result, planter boxes are perfect for passionate home chefs and professional cooks alike as they provide a fresh source of tasty fruits, veggies, and herbs - all with minimal cost!
The different types of planter boxes

You can peruse a plethora of square planters, rectangular box planters, and round planters that can slide into any corner or compact space to suit the size and dimensions of your outdoor space.
Alternatively, you could also opt for a large box planter if you're looking to make a statement and grow a variety of flowers and plants in your own garden. Our extensive range is right at your fingertips and is packed with an array of styles and materials that cater for all kinds of creative growers. From rustic wooden and metal planter boxes to practical and long-lasting plastic alternatives, there's a planter box just waiting to slot into your outdoor area.
Here at OnBuy HQ, we're huge fans of the raised box planter, which takes your growing to new heights and can help you to create gorgeous multi-layered features. Swoon! We also boast planter boxes that come complete with screens to divide sections of your garden in a stylish way or create some convenient privacy from your neighbours. No matter which style catches your eye, a planter box is both a practical and trendy addition to your garden.
How to line planter boxes
Whether you need to line your planter or not primarily depends on the material. For planter boxes that are constructed from wood or metal, it's best to line them as this will help to prolong the planter's life as many metals are prone to rusting and wood can rot. However, if your planter box is made from plastic, ceramic, or concrete, you can fill them without a liner as they're considered more robust and long-lasting. However, lots of people prefer the aesthetic appearance of wood and metal, so we suggest lining them with a sheet of plastic that has plenty of drainage holes to encourage healthy plant growth.
Planter boxes FAQs
How do you waterproof a wooden planter box?
What wood is best for planter boxes?
Redwood, cedar, and white oak are ideal for planter boxes as they offer longevity and are naturally resistant to rot.
Can you grow strawberries in a planter box?
Of course! In fact, you can grow strawberries almost anywhere, from a raised bed to a single plant pot. Just make sure the strawberry fruits aren't resting on damp, wet soil as they mature because they will rot. Looking to grow your own array of flavoursome fruits and veggies?

Is there a way to hang a box planter onto a fence without screws?
Yes! You can use brackets that hook over the top of the fence, with a 'J' hook at the bottom. Make sure the bottom portion is deep enough to place the box into and that the brackets can hold the weight of the box and its contents.
Is pressure-treated wood safe for a vegetable box planter?
When it comes to pressure-treated wood, it's best to err on the side of caution. Modern (or 'new') pressure-treated wood made after 2003 is safe to use for vegetable boxes. However, if you're concerned, you can always use untreated wood instead - just be sure to check regularly for any pesky bug infestations!
