New to The Cottage Gardener, we are very excited to offer our customers our new Bramley Baskets based on a traditional west country basket called a Devon Splint, which in its home region was the Sussex trug of its day. These are made by a wonderful artisan in Wiltshire.

It is made of a steamed sweet chestnut handle and rim, sweet chestnut splints (slats on the sides) and a larch base. The whole basket is fixed using copper and bronze nails. 

Splints are a slightly heavier, more robust basket than a similar size trug. However, they do have one distinct advantage over their Sussex cousins – they have a flat bottom. This enables you to stand flower pots, bottles, jars, etc, in them without them falling over. They are also ideal for collecting anything from potatoes to apples.

Within this range there is a choice of two different shapes; oblong or round.

  • Round shape
  • These are made of natural materials so may have blemishes/colour variations, knots in the wood
  • As the wood handles are steam bent, they may have crease marks or not be a 'perfect' shape due to the challenges of steam bending.
  • Dimensions: diameter approx.34cm, height approx. 36cm
