Welcome to National Beanpole Week 2016 9-17 April 2016
Robert Penn supports National Beanpole Week 2016 see below
National Beanpole Week 2016 will celebrate Britain’s coppiced woodlands, the animals and plants that live in them, the coppice workers who look after them and the beanpoles and other coppice wood products they produce.
Join in and do your bit to secure the future of Britain’s coppiced woodlands - come along to a Beanpole Week event or find a local Beanpole supplier and switch to eco-friendly coppiced beanpoles.
Robert Penn – author, journalist, TV presenter supports National Beanpole Week 2016 ‘Buying and using beanpoles in our gardens just works: they’re inexpensive; it’s very likely they’re locally sourced; they look great and, most importantly, if they are on sale, it means someone, somewhere is managing a coppice woodland well. Beanpoles versus bamboo – it’s a no brainer.’
Contact me and the team for more information about this year’s many special events – there’ll be something for everyone, so you’re sure to find something you’ll really enjoy. If you are struggling to find a local suppler please contact us and we will help.

Monty Don supports National Beanpole week. We asked Monty if he would support National Beanpole week , we were pleased and grateful to receive his reply: “Beanpoles are useful. Beanpoles are beautiful. Beanpoles are completely sustainable. What is more every beanpole we use in our gardens contributes to the conservation of the rich but fragile coppice ecosystem. “- Monty Don
Monty along with other TV presenters have shown there support over the years
“When you choose British grown coppiced beanpoles, you make the right choice for our native woodlands, local jobs, wildlife and the environment. You also make the right choice for your garden because coppiced beanpoles and pea sticks are so easy and pleasurable to work with and provide plants with the grip and support they need.” - Toby Buckland
“It really makes good sense to use more British coppice wood products in the garden, so I’m adding my voice to the call for gardeners and growers to switch to locally-grown coppiced beanpoles and pea sticks” - Bob Flowerdew
