Good quality product, needs two people to put it together!

Good quality product, arrived on time undamaged and complete. Buyers should be aware of the weight of this item as it is very heavy and needs two people to assemble it, preferably in the position in which it will stay as it is to heavy to move easily once assembled!

Poor delivery and missing fixings and instructions

Original delivery failed and I could not contact anyone on the Saturday. Driver left a 20 second message with my child and never rang back and switched his phone off. Second delivery was successful, but there were no fixings, one planter was damaged and no construction/care instructions either. Driver said this is standard for Forest Not impressed overall, and would not buy their products again, simply because of the hassle, lack of customer service and missing fixings which i will now have to buy, if i knew what type I needed that is.

Venice Planter

There were no screws included and the ends of the wood were very rough, considering the price I think they should have been smooth. Lucky for us I wanted it painted green to match my fencing as there was some sort of bright green stain on some of the wood, so we were able to cover it. Once we got over the fact that we didn't even get the bag of screws so my husband went and got some which were the correct size and put it together, it does look good and it's a really good size. Have marked it down because of the missing screws and green stain.

We Replied:

Hi Jenny, Many thanks for your time with writing your review. We are sorry to hear about the missing fixings. If you are still in need of any, please don't hesitate to get back in touch with us and we will happily send out a full replacement set of fixings if still required. In regards to the green colouring, this can sometimes occur in small patches due to the nature of wood and the pressure treatment which the wood receives. The patches can sometimes be an effect of the pressure treatment preservative, but is non-harmful and can be brushed or washed off in most instances. We hope that you have many years of enjoyment from your planter! Kind Regards, Andy.

Excellent product

Excellent product, good price and website efficient and easy transaction. Delivery prompt. Agree with comment about screws being badly packed and inadequate for the job – but I feel mean even mentioning it as it is such a trifling matter! Looking forward to the rain stopping soon so that I can start planting it up!

Love this planter

I was dubious after reading some comments, but this product is lovely, it is sturdy and well made. Yes, there was no instructions included, but there is a plan of how to put it together on their website. The delivery arrived early,so I did'nt have to wait all day. Thank you Mr driver. Thank you Gardensite I am one happy customer.

Peter saggs Asked:

Is this planter available with a shorter trellis?

We Replied:

Dear Peter Thank you for your question. No it isn't I'm afraid. However, you could attach the trellis lower down the planter, thus shortening the height of the trellis, if that makes sense. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Nathan James Dodd

Shirley Asked:

Do we need to put a liner in the planter before filling with compost - if so, what would you recommend?

We Replied:

Dear Shirley Thank you for your question. A liner is not necessary, but if you are growing vegetables then we do suggest a weed control fabric to line the inside of your planter. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Ellie Goodall

Keith Raymond Asked:

Does the Forest Venice Wooden Planter come ready assembled apart from the trellis? Do you supply the screws etc for attaching the trellis to the planter?

We Replied:

Dear Keith Thank you for your question. The planter would come flat packed, so you would have to put the sides of it together as well. All fixtures and fittings are supplied. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Ellie Goodall

Andrew Asked:

I have just purchased a Venice Planter. What should I put in the bottom to help with drainage before I fill with potting compost? Polystyrene or rubble?

We Replied:

Dear Andrew Thank you for your question and your purchase. Adding a layer of stones or gravel in the base can help with drainage. However, as these planters are made from natural wood, the wood itself will absorb a portion of water if overwatering occurs and will naturally seep out over time. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Andy Hobson

Jane Smith Asked:

What is the height at the lower left and right ends of the trellis? What is the height of the planting box from the ground to the rim (i.e. excluding the trellis)? What is the dimension of the planting box from front to back (including the trellis when the trellis is attached? What is the approx weight of the planter when empty? Please supply metric values for the weight and dimensions, if possible. Does the planting box have a base and is this solid or slatted? If slattted, do you recommend using a liner?

We Replied:

Dear Jane We list all the product dimensions below the photograph and also in the thumbnail diagram. You can find the majority of the dimensions and the answers to your questions there. The item weighs 83kilos. Without the trellis, it is 482mm in height and the bottom of the planter is slatted. The height at the left and right points of the trellis is 885mm and that's from the bottom of the trellis to the top. Kind regards Zach Nicholson

Judith Mackenzie Asked:

Does this trellis come ready assembled?

We Replied:

Dear Judith Thank you for your question. Yes, the trellis comes ready assembled as one piece. However the planter will need assembly as it arrives flat packed. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Nathan James Dodd

Cristiano Asked:

Can this hold hedges up to 2mtrs?

We Replied:

Dear Cristiano Thank you for your question. If you mean in height then yes potentially. It will depend on the plant though as some have bigger root systems than others. Any plant that size will need good watering and feeding. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Nathan James Dodd

Steve Ship Asked:

Can this planter be stained or oiled? If so, are there any products you recommend?

We Replied:

Dear Steve Thank you for your question. These planters do arrive already pressure treated to prevent rot but of course can be painted, stained or oiled at home to suit your requirements and garden style. We highly recommend the Cuprinol brand of products, which are available in most well-known DIY stores (normally sold in green tins) and they come in a range of wood paints, oils and stains to suit the desired effect that you are looking for. I hope that this information helps. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Andy.
