How to maintain wooden plant containers?
Paint the planter if it’s unpainted. Repeat when the paint is starting to fall off. Remember to choose one that is safe for plants. Expect to repeat the procedure every year if your containers are subjected to sun, rain, heat and frost.
Provide drainage – drill holes in the bottom of the pot if there are none or not enough. Add layer of gravel to prevent holes from getting clogged with soil.
Add plastic layer inside the planter to protect wooden walls from moisture. Remember to cut holes at the bottom to allow water drainage.
Pl ace the container on the hard surface to isolate it from ground and prevent rot.
