If you’re looking for a planter box with a trellis to adorn your garden or balcony, you may be wondering where to start? There’s a baffling choice out there! Whether you need a trellis planter box to house a climbing rose in your garden or add privacy to a balcony, there’s something for every style and budget!
Not to be underestimated, a trellis is a key component of any garden or outside space. It enables you to grow beautiful climbing plants and vegetables, provides privacy and it looks pretty good too. When attached to a planter box, a trellis provides additional planting space, ideal if you don’t have a wall or fence to grow plants up or if you want to add climbing plants to a patio area, balcony or gazebo.
We’ve done some research and rounded up our pick of the very best garden trellis planter boxes:
