21 Aug Felt Planters from The Urban Farmer
Looking to increase your gardening space, even just over the warmer months? You might want to check out this range of felt planters by The Urban Farmer.
There are 4 sizes to suit most potting jobs, from a low broad planter (20cm tall x 40cm diameter) to a larger veggie or flower growing bed (99cm long x 51cm Wide x 25cm Deep). They are all very tough being made out of thick polypropylene fabric which has reinforced stitching along the seams and handles. They come in a dark, almost charcoal colour which over time fades to an earthy brown colour that is quite at home in any garden.
The best bit is that you can easily empty the planters and store them away when not in use. Great for seasonal gardeners!
I have grown salad greens in the low broad planter with great success as well as tomatoes in the larger, taller planter which I found to also be quite stable on the ground, even with a larger plant and trellis. The larger rectangular bed is also great for raising a small bed up and away from competing tree roots as the base will act as a barrier to their entry.
With care you can apparently get several seasons out of them. I have used mine for one season now and can see only a lightening of their colour to indicate any ageing.
