Elizabeth Read
- Balconniere Self Watering -

I bought the trough to grow lettuce and the square version for tomatoes. Both products are robust and the self-watering system works incredibly well.

June Thompson
- Lead Effect Square -

The planter is exactly what I needed to complete my patio display. It is light and easy to handle, and allows for drainage. Nobody would believe that it’s plastic!

Simon Walker
- Varese Medium Planter -

Great planter. Designed to look ceramic but because it’s plastic it is much more practical as it is easy to move around my patio. I would highly recommend this product.

John Goldie
- Honey Pot Planter -

This is an excellent plant pot. It looks great and is light and durable. All in all, excellent value for money.

Sam Lansdowne
- Varese Tall Planter -

I love this planter. The shape, the design and the colour is very attractive. It looks so authentic and hard to believe it’s plastic.

Helen Grossman
- Smithy Planter -

Perfect for a medium size garden. Robustly made, it didn't buckle when full of compost or when being moved around the garden.

Jack McKenna
- Blenheim Half Barrel Pewter -

Just what I needed to replant one of my shrubs with a nice wide base and beautiful pewter style finish.

Victoria Fernandez
- Oak Effect Water Butt -

Nice looking water butt that could be easily mistaken as wood. I would highly recommend this product.

Our story
Company history

Stewart is born! Founded by Charles Dugan-Chapman, a former Spitfire pilot. Early products include everyday containers and decorative beading immediately snapped up by Woolworths.


Now well-respected for its custom moulding technology, Stewart becomes a large supplier to the cosmetic, medical and housewares industries. In 1954, having outgrown its factory, Stewart moves to Croydon.


The first Stewart Garden products range is launched. The company continues to invest in the houseware and customised ranges. In 1963 Stewart Plastics Ltd is listed on the London Stock Exchange.


A major supplier to the houseware and DIY retail sector, Stewart also increased its distribution of branded products to the UK garden market.


The Company continues to grow after becoming acquired by Bunzl plc. The acquisition allows for Stewart garden, housewares and catering products to be sold into wider markets.


Stewart makes substantial development in the gardening range. In 1996, Stewart pioneered the launch of rotationally moulded decorative planters and continues to be a leading supplier of growing products and planters.


Stewart, now established as a leading brand in the UK garden market, supplies 1100 product lines to 2700 retailers in the UK and export markets.


In 2012, the company moved to a new HQ in Banbury, Oxfordshire. Further investment in new technology is enabling us to continue development of the Stewart brand by bringing more high quality, innovative products like the Varese planter family.

Community projects

Since 2012 we have strengthened our commitment to the grow your own movement and equipped over 350 schools with growing essentials through our Stewart Garden Schools Campaign.

Now in its fourth year, the campaign challenges schools to teach pupils the valuable life skill of growing produce from seed.

Our hope is to ensure that the next generation of young gardeners learn how rewarding it is to grow their own produce.
