Wooden Planters

The ugly grey tone of wooden garden planters are now all the vogue, some people even have theirs pre-aged to give it the look! Whiskey barrels fall into this category. Many have used wooden planters as water gardens with great effect. There also resin ones nowadays which have the 'wood' look but don't require the preparation needed to make it watertight (for water garden uses). The size of these wooden planters makes them ideal for larger shrubs or small trees. I've even seen them used as a vegetable or herb garden, ideal for outside the kitchen door.

There are lots of different varieties of wooden planters on the net (a lot more than you'd find in any one nursery!), these are my favorites:

My favorite place to get wooden planters is at Yardiac - they have a big selection and reasonable prices.
