Dobies of Devon has just launched a range of crates that are ideal for growing vegetables, flowers and fruit. These handsome rustic crates are designed for use where growing space is limited and will fit perfectly on a balcony, roof garden or small patio.

• They can be stacked one on top of the other to make best use of vertical space

• The crates come in a range of sizes so there’s at least one to fit every space

• They are made from 12mm sustainable wood and have a 3-year protective stain so will look good for ages

• Each crate can be personalised for free with the message of your choosing – up to 20 characters/spaces per slat

The Crates are available to buy on their own, just with liners, or ready stocked with collections of suitable plants and seeds. Please see below for details of the available collections:
