Rated 4 out of 5Â by Pragmatic Great product but photo is misleading shape is correctly more like a whiskey/wine barrel than a wide open flower pot
This is a poly resin planter ~24" diameter (top opening) ~15" high and ~18" bottom diameter. The distorted photo makes the customer think this is a wide open top flower pot it more like a correct whiskey/wine barrel taper, and re. the finish - it has a "weathered" whiskey/wine barrel design/texture/color - the look is pretty accurate if you've ever seen old oak whiskey/wine barrels left out in the weather.
Drain holes? Yes, if you want drain holes, you have to actually drill drain holes if you want to use this as a planter - no big deal get a 1/2 inch drill bit or a larger diameter spade bit and "go to town."
The resin foam material is easy to drill - no problem, (also no reason to give this product "2 stars," that's really a weak complaint. Most heavy duty, large plant pots we've seen do not have drain holes...
Besides you might want to fill one of these with cool water on a hot summer day and soak your tired feet/toes... We had some concrete finishers that wanted to a fill a new one of these with water to wash off their tools in - thinking they were a large oak cleaning barrel/basin - we rescued the planters from that use. ;-)
The price is reasonable/competitive for similar products, and no rust stains, rotting, or stave shrinkage like real oak barrels.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Fred not sure why anyone would want to display their Pants in this but it works good for plants.
I'm not sure why anyone would want to display their pant in this whiskey barrel. The barrel contains no actual whiskey so i would really be inclined to take off my pants for display. Instead I filled mine with potting soil and put my plants in in and they look great!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Shirlm Great Planter
Perfect size for all my veggie's and easy to make drainage holes.. I just used a drill and bit with no problem what so ever and I am a female. Not right for the other person to give this planter a 2 stars just because it didn't come with drainage holes. They are very easy to make on the bottom of planter.
I LOVE this planter and have so far 10. I am planning to purchase more in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mountainmama Great for potted vegetables and flowers on patio.
We bought 4 of these to grow our vegetables and flowers on our patio. We drilled in drainage holes on the bottom where the guides were.
They are working fabulously. My plants are thriving and I am about to go back to the store and buy 2 or 3 more for more vegetables.
They are durable and functional. They look nice on our patio and since they are fiberglass, I know they will not rot inside.
I am very very pleased and highly recommend these for patio use. Especially if you have a lot to plant. They can hold them.

These whiskey barrel type planters are a great size for one large plant or several small plants. Room to grow!
I have two large tomato plants in some of these and two Artichoke plants in one of them.
Some contain short rows of beets and carrots. They are even suitable for growing potatoes as long as they do not stay too wet or get too hot. Use a Professional quick draining soil mix infused with helpful bacteria.
These planters are not to heavy for me to pick up and move even after I water them. [Not that I would do this often.] they are much lighter that a true half whiskey barrel. Those are heavy enough empty!
Worth every penny I paid for them. On line ordering and free store pick up are great!!!
