Latest project - Michelin starred restaurant

Our latest project saw us working with Vineet Bhatia, a Michelin-starred chef who owns a restaurant just off the King's Road in Chelsea, London. The owners were after a new look for the entrance of the restaurant and a refreshed look for their roof terrace.  Using the full range of Bay and Box products, we provided planters and planted window boxes for the entrance and used our range of artificial Buxus balls to provide a smart and maintenance-free finish for the roof terrace.  See a range of before and after photos below!            For more information on how...

Winter wonders

It's been a really exciting time at Bay and Box this week as we launched our new artificial and Christmas collections! For our range of artificial plants and flowers, we have scoured and tested products across the world to find the very best in the market. High-quality and with an incredibly realistic look and feel, they provide the perfect maintenance-free option over the winter months and beyond, ideal for those who are away a lot or do not have a lot of spare time for the upkeep of their plants and flowers. They honestly had our friends and family fooled as...

Festival season

Wow, it's certainly been a busy few weeks here at Bay and Box HQ! Alongside some fantastic coverage in Stylist magazine, the Sunday Times and Wandsworth magazine, we have run competitions with The English Garden magazine and Gardeners' World online.

The Bay and Box stall even got a visit from the Mayor of Wandsworth! Next up is the Northcote Summer Fete on Sunday 10 July - please...

Staying out for the summer

Staying out for the summer

Well, we are certainly melting in the London spring/summer heat this weekend! Hotter then Ibiza apparently! So what better time then to turn our attention to summer proper and the best choices for your Bay and Box window boxes. If you are looking for plants that will stay out for the duration, the longest lasting flowing plants are impatiens (busy lizzies) and geraniums. There are plenty of varieties available with both of these choices, depending on the look you want to go for. For example, the ivy-leaved trailing geraniums give a more Mediterranean look than the more formal looking ones....

Picture perfect

We have had a lot of compliments on the photos on our website which were taken by the fantastic Moritz Schmittat. For this particular shoot, we asked Moritz to capture various shots of our products both planted and empty, as well as in situ, to demonstrate the exact fit of our window boxes in terrace and bay windows. We also asked him to show how our outdoor planters can perfectly frame entrances.   We were really happy with the results, especially when one photo appeared in Stylist magazine last week! Apparently the weather is continuing to heat up this week...
