A horticultural tool of great ingenuity
The “Château de Versailles” orange tree planters are horticultural tools of great ingenuity. The Château de Versailles’ gardeners great expertise allowed to introduce technical improvements to the products in order to provide the best care for all species of trees and shrubs.
The orange tree planter is originally mounted with neither a solid bottom or an internal tray (unless required in special cases). The recovery of the plants is thus favored by better drainage and good aeration of the soil mixture. It also is fitted with four easily removable side panels. These openings give direct access to the root ball for easy maintenance and to provide the necessary root care.
These removable panels are easily repainted and maintained, without removing the plants. Simply remove the panels in opposing pairs. An operation to be planned when wintering them.
Strict respect for these horticultural qualities, combined with unequaled aesthetics, continues to convince the greatest landscapers and gardeners around the world.
