Traditionally used by farmers to measure seeds and grain, trugs are the perfect accessory for your allotment. Ideal for harvesting your freshly grown fruit, vegetables and flowers, wicker trugs have so many uses!
Trugs are arguably one of the most essential pieces of gardening equipment. They provide a home to transport your gardening utensils such as tools, twine, labels and other small equipment. Garden trugs save multiple trips back and forth to the shed, helping you garden with ease and efficiency.
Willow trugs are also perfect for foraging hedgerows and collecting natures edible delights. They make a welcome change from unsightly plastic bags and boxes and ensure you forage in style!
Wicker trugs are also fabulous for flower arranging and are perfect for taking flower or plant cuttings. When choosing a trug for flowers, we recommend opting for one of our shallow rectangular styles. These tend to make the best baskets for gathering your long-stemmed blooms such as lilies and delphiniums and ensuring that they do not get bent. Our smaller, deeper trugs are useful for dead heading, general gardening and transportation of tools.
Our selection of wicker trugs showcases a range of different shapes and styles, suitable for every sized garden or allotment. With a size to suit every space, we even have a range of mini trugs, great for the kids or smaller crops. Some of our garden trugs are lined with durable hessian. These are particularly good for protecting your vegetables and keeping any mess or dirt confined!
At The Basket Company, we also have a fantastic selection of Rattan Planters and Plant Pots, a charming addition to any outdoor space.
Trug baskets are the ideal gift for any green fingered loved one and are a popular choice for every occasion. From Mother’s Day to Christmas, trugs are a timeless gift loved by everyone. Why not fill your gardening trug with seasonal seeds, a pair of gardening gloves and some hand cream to create a unique and thoughtful gift.

Trugs are not just for the garden! Our selection of woven trugs are also great for creating a rustic home display. We think they look particular charming when filled with an assortment of fresh blooms and presented on the kitchen worktop.
