Are Cadix planters protected against frost?
Yes all of the Cadix planters designed for outdoor use have frost resistance, when properly drained. Water will freeze and expand in frosty weather, so planters without a drainage hole are more suitable for indoor plants as these will be susceptible to frost damage. Some of our Cadix planters also offer UV protection making them ideal for outdoor use.
Good drainage is important for all plants, but particularly so for outdoor plants to protect the planter against frost damage. Our Cadix planters designed for outdoor usage are protected against frost, but only if drainage is maintained. We recommend filling the bottom of the pot with bricks, stones or gravel and situating the pot off the ground to ensure the drainage hole does not get blocked. Good potting compost can also help.
Metal planters can be cleaned with linseed or baby oil or just water. Highly polished planters like the Lux granite range should only be cleaned with warm water and a soft cloth or sponge.
The lamps should only be refilled with Cadix lamp oil (99 per cent liquid paraffin) or Cadix Citronella Oil. Care should be taken when refilling and a funnel or Easyfill® bottle can prevent spillage. The lamp should only be filled to 75 per cent of its capacity and never refilled when alight.
Oil burning lamps by Cadix are for outdoor use only. They should be kept out of reach of children at all times. Never leave the lamp unattended when burning. Care should be taken when placing an oil lamp on polished surfaces; we recommend protecting the surface beneath the lamp.

A real selling point is the granite mix used in construction. This makes it frost resistant for the UK climate, and gives it the authentic and desirable rocky look of solid granite.
