Oak’s a strong timber that’s suited to life outdoors because its natural oils protect it from the elements. It will silver and develop surface cracks over time, though, so we’ve given it a chalky finish that highlights the grain and hints at that silvery patina.
On the inside, Bibury’s sealed against moisture using a clear paint (the kind used on boat hulls). It’s not completely watertight, but will help keep your plants from drying out. There are also small pads that raise the planter off the floor, to protect it from damp underfoot.
Where we see it
Though natural oak’s lovely in any garden where there’s lots of greenery, Bibury’s clean lines mean it’s also ideal for small city balconies, where it will take on a crisp, modern feel.

There’s no need to do anything to look after this planter, but if you like, you can give it a gentle clean with mild soapy water now and then. If possible, letting it dry out occasionally will help slow the ageing process too.
