Self-Watering Whiskey Barrel Planter Lasts for 20 Years

Barrel gardens overflowing with colorful flowers look great flanking a driveway, but wooden barrels crack or rot in a year or two. Our Whiskey Barrel looks absolutely authentic, but it's actually made of indestructible half-inch-thick recycled plastic that has the grain and texture of wood, bound by rusted steel hoops that give it an antique look. Best of all, this barrel is self-watering!

  • 8-gallon reservoir keeps plants watered for up to 10 days
  • Never cracks, rots or splits
  • This oversize item has a $10 additional shipping charge each
  • Our Self-Watering Container Mix is the perfect planting mix!
  • 16" H x 23-1/2" in diameter
  • Made of recycled plastic and steel
  • 8-gallon water reservoir
  • Holds 45 quarts of soil
  • Patented
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

        I have had two Barrels for 3 years- they are just dandy! I am in need of a couple more to support my relocating and transplanting efforts.

        Comments about Self-Watering Whiskey Barrel:

        I bought one of these last year and it performed extremely well in full sun even during the hottest, driest periods. The bands rusted attractively, but the barrel itself is still in perfect condition. The only problem with it is that I had to drill my own drainage holes just above the reservoir line - without them, the plants could end up floating in excess water during a heavy rain or if overwatered.

          I've had mine for about 3 years now, and it still looks great! I wanted to get a couple more since in the Texas heat planters really have to be self watering.

              Our village beautification committee purchased 15 of these last year, and hoped to purchase more this year to replace our old, heavy, deteriorating wooden whiskey barrels. They worked out great for us. They reduced manhours for watering, were much lighter in weight for village crews to move, and very attractive.

              I am very disappointed they are no longer available.

                    To the person that was disappointed that the bands rusted: THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO RUST!! It is what makes the barrels look real. [...]. We've not had rain for 2 weeks, my two barrels are in the blazing sun all day and I've only had to fill them twice. I mix the plant food in my watering can, remove the 'rose' and pour it in the tube. My supertunias have never done so good. THANK YOU!! PLEASE email me when these are available - I may want two more next year. My first one I bought about 5 years ago. My second one came last month, [...]

                    I've owned these for 4 years now and I love them.

                    Several things to note:
                    -The edges of the decorative metal hoops are sharp
                    -You have to drill your own drainage overflow holes
                    -Replacement wick material is available here
                    -Mine easily last a week between waterings
                    -The fill tube makes it easy to feed regularly

                      a water source. This invention saves me many heavy tote jobs

                      We purchased three of these whiskey barrels to decorate the entrance to our local public library. It is a sunny spot and these containers are perfect for the location. The self-watering reserve lets the librarians fill the containers less frequently while allowing the plants to get the water they need, especially over weekends and holidays. The library has had multiple compliments on the new planters.

                      • Beautiful, bountiful planters depend on good soil, fertilizer and careful watering. But to take your planters from standard to sensational, you need the right plants. Start with this simple rule: Combine plants with three different habits. In other words, thrillers, fillers and spillers.
