Garden planter

Sturdy and went together well. ( We bought this to go with two larger ones we bought earlier this year and very happy with those.) Have added a liner and drainage.

Good, but a bit rough around the edges

Bought this for my Mum's birthday and she's delighted with it. There was a slight gap around the top when we put it together but apart from that, it's really good. The only downside is that the delivery company sent the wrong one, but they collected it and redelivered the next week.

Fantastic Planter

I must say these planters are great, we brought two for our small garden. Putting them together was easy with two people, although I would suggest adding a couple of lengths of wood for more support to the base especially as you are putting in so much compost. The planters now look great filled with yes plants. If i could add a photo i would, Very Happy

Really good size and deep with space for roots which does the job well on my balcony. It does take a fair bit of assembly yet I am very pleased with the result
