Planting tips

Three small holes can be drilled into the bottom of the planter to allow excess water to drain down into the barrel. Capillary matting can be placed at the bottom of the planter to keep moisture in the planter and prevent soil going into the barrel. Alternatively Capillary matting can be placed on top of the screen guard. The rear hole in the planter, if not used for a down pipe, can be used to stand a plant pot in to give height to any planting.
