Back by popular demand, this unique gardening trug makes for a delightful wooden carry basket, which contains: Assorted Milk, White and Dark Chocolate Raspberry Jellies 400g bag, Cocoa Dusted Macadamias 300g bag, Dark Chocolate Incaberries 300g bag, Dark Chocolate Cranberries 300g bag, Freeze Dried Strawberries 170g bag, Freeze Dried Raspberries 170g bag, Assorted Chocolate Coffee Beans 200g bag. 

Once the chocolates are gone, you can use this wonderful wooden gardening trug to pick and carry your fruits and vegetables from your garden to your kitchen table.

These wooden trugs are handmade in Sussex, UK, by a local family-run business, who for the past 150 years, have been making the Sussex Trug with a simple design, using local native materials. Young coppiced Sweet Chestnut, split and seasoned, makes a strong and light frame for the basket, then flexible and light willow boards give it a body. Two lengths of Chestnut are cut to appropriate lengths, then shaved by hand with drawknife before being steam bent around their corresponding formers, one for the handle and one for the rim. These make the frame of the trug.

The boards to fit are sawn from clefts of willow. These are then cut to the correct length and width before being shaved thinner either end, soaked in water and pressed into the frame and pinned into place with cut copper tacks. Small willow feet are added for stability and with a coat of linseed oil the Sussex Trug is then ready for years of faithful service. 

Size 28cm high (including handle) X 45cm X 24cm.

Hot weather alert! October to April

We have developed a “hot weather protection” pack, which consists of a foam box, an ice block in a protective bag, and various packing materials to line the box. This is usually sufficient to protect the order from heat for the duration of the delivery and is available for purchase during the ordering process for $10 plus shipping. Find out more

Due to the fragile nature of our chocolates, we highly recommend that Hot Weather Protection packs are included in your order during the hotter months from October to April. Refunds will not be offered for any heat affected products unless a hot weather protection pack has been purchased during these months.
