Almost any kind of plant can be grown in a wine barrel planter providing it is taken care of correctly. the ability to move the wine barrel planters around is perhaps the biggest advantage. as the seasons and the suns position changes, you can move your plant to a sunnier or shady spot to fit the needs of the plant. you will also be able to move plants into the limelight when they come into bloom, or into the background somewhere when they are finished.
There is no need to line or paint the inside of the wine barrel as there is no chemicals to leach into the potting mix just wine infused oak.
Drill a few holes in the bottom for drainage, line the bottom with stones to help from getting clogged up. Fill with quality potting mix ( making sure it has slow and fast releasing fertizers), your wine barrel planter is now ready to produce great plants.
Coating the wine barrel planter with marine vanish will not make it last longer - but looks fantastic.
