Plastic wood raised beds

Can anyone recommend a plastic wood raised bed supplier? We want something reasonably robust, but as inexpensive as possible, with different sizes available. No clear comparisons can be made online.

    My guess is that "robust" and "inexpensive" will be a difficult combination to find.

    Yes, l don't think they were cheap, but they were well made. You pays your money and you takes your choice  :)

    Perhaps look at making them yourself using composite decking boards, but those aren't that cheap either (typically £13 for a 1.8m (6ft) length of 140x20mm.)  You can get composite stakes (for the corners and side supports) cheaply from places like this:
    As long as you pre-drill the screw holes, building them is easy and requires only a minimum of tools and DIY skills
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thank you all for the great ideas! I think we will have a very good look at making them ourselves as BobTheGardener suggests
