Urgent help finding garden planter!!


I wonder if anyone could help me, sadly my nana passed away recently
and due to her love of swans me and my family would like to have her
ashes put into an outdoor swan planter with a rosebush.

I have searched all over the internet and have emailed a few companies
but i cant seem to find anything suitable. All we would like is a planter
that is the shape of a swan or a planter of any shape with swans
engraved on it.

I would be very grateful if anyone knows of any companies that make
anything like this or anywhere else they may available. It doesnt matter
where it comes from as long as it can be shipped to UK.

Thanks in advance for any help given.

My deepest condolences. I don't have any swan planter sources for you--at least good ones. We have a couple of catalogues that have uggy plastic ones that may only last a year or two--I wouldn't recommend them. Have you asked at local garden centres? Even if they don't have any in stock, they may have catalogues or be able to suggest sources. Or is there a cement company-not paving but the kind that makes statuary/birdbaths/etc.? Or, a local art school that may have a student or teacher willing to cast one in cement or heavy terra cotta, or some other outdoor medium? I'm so sorry you lost your nana. Mine died before I was three, but I know it was from her I got the "gardening" and "reading genes". Good luck in your search.

Happy Gardening,
