Just some of our clients: 
All our Plantabox products are hand-made and personalised for you! 
 
We would love to continue building your personalised wooden crates, but we have run out of wood and paint!

We thank everyone for their support at this difficult time and apologise for any inconvenience caused. 
 
Our website will remain open, but for all orders placed, build and delivery will be delayed until after we re-open. We will update as soon as we are able.
