Very sturdy. Easy enough to assemble, though as with most wood products, do need to drill pilot holes first. May order a few more, esp if I get a bit of a discount!

great delivery service - good product, but needlessly tough to assemble

Ordering and delivery very smooth and easy. The planter itself is solid and nicely designed. However, be aware that it is self-assembly, and you'll need a drill, since this flat-pack planter has no pre-drilled holes (or markings as to where they should be drilled), and there's a surprising amount of physical labour involved. The base section of ours was also slightly the wrong size, so needed to be shaved with a plane. Various unnescessary stray nails and heavy-duty staples were sticking out of the wood in places and needed removing, and the top horizontal spar of the upright section was half an inch lower on one side than the other, so this needed to be taken off and re-sited. In addition, the entire wooden flatpack, metal contents and paper instructions arrived soaking wet, as if they'd sat in a bath of water all night. For this price, the manufacturer really ought to pre-drill the holes, and take more care in cutting the parts to fit. Having said that, it's a great planter, and very nice looking when it's finally assembled - sturdy, and elegant, and by far the nicest one we saw on the market. We're very happy with it. Shame that putting it together took four hours, blistered hands and carpentry skills.
