Rated 5 out of 5Â by gkygrl Great for container herbs
I bought one of these tubs about 2 years ago to plant herbs in for my balcony garden. I planted a variety of herbs with different watering needs in the same container (i.e. basil and rosemary), as I didn't know better at the time. All the herbs thrived, far better than in individual clay/plastic pots with identical soil; my barrel herbs are lush and full, while their potted counterparts that I cloned at the same time are just OK. I bought a second tub about 8-9 months later. Both have held up well in the South Florida heat and humidity and with daily watering. I'm planning on purchasing a third to get rid of my remaining pots. As other reviewers have mentioned, these are quite heavy when filled with soil and watered.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DarkStar Very Nice - Kinda Heavy
I bought 2 of these barrel planters for container rasberry bushes. Both plants are thriving. There is very good drainage, and the quality is very good, but I did have to go through several of them on the shelf to find one without a chip or knot. The wood is really solid and the color is a nice rich warm redwood tone. Please note that when filled with soil these suckers are HEAVY! If you are planing on moving them around, please put on casters or similar. I would guess that they weighed at least 60lbs when filled and watered. I do think they are a good value for the money and look great on my patio.

Good looking and functional tubs. We purchased two for the front of our house. The only complaint we had is that one of the tubs had some chips on one side; however the stock was limited so we took it anyway. We used a wood scratch cover on the damaged area and it blends in fine. Can't speak to the durability of the product since we have only had them a few weeks so far.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kristen So far so good.
Good size and seems durable. I planted a dwarf variety hydrangea in mine and it's doing great so far. It *is* really heavy though after filling with dirt!
