Hiding Large Plant Pots

The large ornamental plants were taken out of the greenhouse last week, some were placed in the herbaceous border whilst others were taken to the Pump Quad. Those that were placed in the Pump Quad created a dilemma, how to hide the ugly looking black and brown pots?

Pallets, that is the answer that came to Ady and Kieron. Having gone on a search around the college grounds they managed to find several pallets with different slat configurations, making them perfect for their project.

Each pallet was cut up into smaller pieces and the best six kept to make a hexagonal frame that will conceal the plant pots. A prototype was created, including plants, ready for approval by Simon before the others were planted up.
