Received the baskets I ordered to discover that they look an awful like the ones listed for 50 cents less. The (HD added?) labeling indicates that it's the right item, but it doesn't look like my older Beckett baskets or those being advertised here and elsewhere. Also, these don't seem to made of the same plastic and feel like they'll be less durable in the UV of the sun. Probably taking these back.

I got a large quantity of these, after experimenting with four, for "drop-in" style gardening. I wanted square pots to maximize space for roots and to minimize space between them for weeds to thrive.
I lined them with a 36" square of landscape fabric to hold the dirt in and planted bulbs in the bottom with a a half-inch of fine seed soil on top. The bulbs are very happy and the seeds are beginning but need more warmth. I know I might have to replant them in early spring.
The baskets are sunk in the ground so that the top of the basket, with something pretty like alysum added after the seeds become small plants, around the edges. I can have something getting ready in a warm sunny spot and switch out with something that's going out of season.
I'm gonna be blogging about this if it's as big a success as I think it's gonna be!

Most of the holes were free from extra plastic leftover from mass production. Will work great or what I needed. Strong enough to stand on it's own with soil and plants introduced, good size for the money.

So far so good. Use these planters for my reflecting pool to keep my water lily and other plants contained.
