The Brown Plant pot

New lamppost box unveiled

De Bruin Plantpot has added a new product to its range this year: the Lanterna, a lamppost planter with an indoor growing container. They are also launching the Rotondo, a hanging basket for facades, steel wires, or lampposts. Unlike similar suppliers who provide these containers complete with plants under contracts, De Bruin only offers the containers to their customers, which include local growers, garden centers, holiday parks, shopkeepers' associations, owners' associations, and (semi) government institutions.

The Lanterna is designed with an ebb-and-flow bottom, making growing on tables easy. The inner container is fitted with water channels in the corners, simplifying the watering process once plants are placed in the Lanterna. It has a water buffer of over 6 liters and a soil volume of 12 liters in the inner tray. When choosing the right plants, watering once every 3 to 4 weeks is sufficient, depending on the outside temperature and possible rainfall.

The easy-to-change inner tank allows for effortless plant changes with the seasons, enabling year-round beautification of streets with seasonal products.

Lanterna and indoor planter

The Lanterna consists of two halves that can be attached to any lamppost with a pole bracket. After mounting the pole brackets and hanging the Lanterna, securing the bins with a tie-wrap and placing the indoor container is all that remains.

Common and proven planting examples for summer include Austrian hanging geraniums, Surfinias, Scaevolas, and Hederas. In autumn, the container can be filled with winter shrubs such as Hedera hibernica, Skimmia, Festuca, and Gaultheria.

The Rotondo planter consists of a round flower box with a trellis and a galvanized spindle with a chain. It can be hung from lampposts or facades using pole or wall brackets, or from steel wires (such as those stretched across a shopping street) using the provided carabiners.

The Rotondo has a diameter of 60 cm and is 30 cm high. This results in a water buffer of over 10 liters and a soil buffer of 35 liters. With the Rotondo, De Bruin Plantpot is targeting the same customers as with the Lanterna.

Both containers are made of PE (polyethylene) plastic, which is strong, impact-resistant, flexible, weather-resistant, and long-lasting.
