Further Information
Oak Barrels made from local oak have been used in France for centuries to store and age wine, given the oak and vanilla overtones they impart. The barrels we cut in half to produce these planters are sourced from a selection of high end vineyards, including one operated by Remy Martin, where they are only used for one season before being decommissioned and imported to the UK. These half oak barrels planters have a capacity of over 100 litres, (just under 25 imperial gallons), and were produced using high grade Oak from the surrounding regions. Only 5% of an Oak Tree is deemed of good enough quality to produce wine barrels. Their light look makes them perfect for sitting on a decking area. Finishes/colours may vary slightly as these are produced from natural materials. Given their size, (45cm high, 69cm wide), these half barrels are particularly suited for use with large plants and arrangements.
Maintenance
Oak can darken and silver through time and the effects of weathering. This process will, however, take a while and can be prevented/delayed through regular pressure washing. Alternatively, a protective oil/sealant can be applied to the planters. Please note: Barrels are stock outside, so may arrive more weathered then pictured.
Conversion Process
They are also suitable to use for collecting water. Water butts are extremely environmentally friendly. Rainwater is ideal for use in any garden; it’s not subject to a hose-pipe ban, it’s free, natural and organic. To purchase a Converted Oak Barrel please see item under Oak Barrel category.
Barrels: Finishing Touches & Colour
Because our barrels are sourced from a number of high end vineyards, they feature a variety of finishing touches. All are based around a core design that include standard, hand curved staves and metal bands, but finishing specifications do differ. These include willow bands to top and bottom, supporting braces to both faces and vineyard specific markings. Some are daubed with red paint around the bilge to indicate the colour of wine their batch contains. All barrels start out light in colour, but as with any timber product, will silver over time. The colour of your barrel will depend on how long it has been in our stock. Barrels can be restored through pressure washing, sanding and/or the use of oxalic acid if required. A coat of Danish Oil can delay the weathering process.
