Mr. Workerman saw the box sitting on the front stoop. "Now what did you order?"
Planters, baby. Gigantic planters.
eBay is the best! I bought these 18" guys for less than $40 (including shipping).
They are molded resin/plastic and built to withstand cold temperatures, resist fading, chipping and cracking. Great for us Northerners. All I need to do is clean them up, pop a few more holes in the bottom for drainage and wait for the snow to melt.
Now, you wouldn't believe how hard it is to find high quality, terracotta colored, resin/plastic planters that look like real clay... but aren't the price of a small house! I feel like they never go on sale (in the big box stores and the IGCs) and to purchase them online is ridiculous unless you are a millionaire.
I've only been lucky twice. Once at the end of last summer (Mendards clearance sale) and then last week with my eBay find...
|Menards terra/resin planter - I think it cost $27. Oh yes! and Nibbler sniffing summer air :)|
Do you grow a lot of plants in containers? Are you particular about what the containers look like?! Drop me a note!
