Several years ago we posted about these fantastic wooden obelisks that we first discovered at a plant fair at Helmingham Hall in Suffolk. The company was then a start-up, specialising in hand-made garden structures which can be painted any colour you choose from Farrow & Ball or Little Greene. Now exhibiting annually at RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the company has gone from strength to strength, expanding the range into wooden planters as well as the obelisks. We are still as big a fans as ever, particularly as they are now made with an environmentally friendly timber called Accoya, which has an exceptional durability and does not contain any toxic chemicals (unlike most other treated timbers). We think these white ones would make a particularly lovely present.
