-Perfect for those wanting to maximise their outdoor flower power –
A classic range of window boxes, made from high quality galvanised steel, is being launched by traditional Hertfordshire garden planter firm Arthur Jack & Co.
Ideal for homeowners wanting to make the most of their outdoor garden space, no matter how limited, the window boxes have been cleverly designed for various uses. Available in two sizes so they fit the majority of windowsills, they can be used as a standard window box, as edging for terraces and decking, and for hanging over railings.
Smart design touches include adjustable legs to allow for slanting sills, pre-drilled bases for drainage, fitted bottom tray and bolt fixings for hanging. The boxes echo the same style as Arthur Jack’s planter range and are made with the same care and finish, complete with Tudor rose on each long side. Prices start at £170.
Tim Dawson from Arthur Jack & Co said: “Our new window boxes are ideal for households who want to maximise their outdoor flower power. Traditionally made in the UK, they can really enhance the look of a small or large garden, house frontage or railings.”
The concept was prompted by interest at last year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, from owners of Georgian and Victorian houses, in Arthur Jack’s traditional garden planter range. The firm’s garden water butt was shortlisted for RHS Chelsea Garden Product of the Year 2015.
Specific design features setting the window boxes apart from others are:
- Available in two lengths – 85 cm (£170) and 110 cm (£185)
- Adjustable legs to make them level on a slanted window sill and aid drainage.
- Optional tray to stop dirty water discolouring painted sills (87cm £40 & 112cm £45).
- Drilled bases to avoid waterlogging.
- Optional U bolts for attaching to railings.

Notes for editors:
Arthur Jack’s steel planters, water butts and window boxes are the result of a great deal of research by a couple of keen gardeners, who were unable to find exactly what they wanted for their own garden.
Made of heavy gauge galvanised steel, they are decorated in a traditional Georgian style complete with Tudor roses and decorative balls. The bottom panels on the planters are drilled to allow free drainage and there are feet in each corner to keep the base clear.
They are made in England by artisan metal craftsmen, and then finished with a special treatment to give them an aged patina. Their many uses in the garden are as containers for topiary box ball, roses, small shrubs, trees and flowers.
Because they are hot dip galvanised they will have a long life.
