There are some great advantages to selecting a planter made from wood, as timber provides natural insulation and so can overwinter plants easier as the roots can be protected from frosts. This style of planter is so versatile, as they can vary is size and height according to the planting scheme.
Wooden planters are great for vegetable planting, especially the deep root varieties by Zest 4 leisure or Forest Garden, as they are elevated from the ground and so easier to garden without bending too far. Tiered planters are especially useful for positioning in corners of the garden as they allow planting at varying heights, giving a cascading planting scheme, idea for trailing plants.
Sleeper planters are another option, as they are manufactured from mini sleeper timbers slotted together to form a rectangular or square arrangement, which generally do not come with a base, however, compost can be retained using landscape fabric to line the planter. If you want to create a climbing plant feature then a wooden trellis planter may be worthy of consideration, as they are deep enough for a substantial climbing plant such as a Clematis or even a patio rose.
