What to do with really large planters?

and other helpful hints

They are SO big. Do you fill them with dirt? Oh so heavy.. Do you use plastic peanuts in the bottom? They get very soggy… Do you put a plastic pot inside the terra cotta or ceramic planter? Not a great look…

It’s been a “garden problem” for years!

Problem solved. Go on over to Ups-a-Daisy. Mine arrived today, Wednesday after placing my order on Sunday. No extra charge, just fast service! You might also find them at your local garden center; I wasn’t able to so ordered on line.






It’s an insert. It sits about half way down the pot (measure carefully)…meaning that you then only need to fill the top half (about) of your pot.

Problem solved!
