Ideal for planters - These barrels have come straight from Marlborough winery’s and have only had wine in them! Holds 110ltr - 45cm tall and 70cm wide
Suggested process to set up wine barrel for planting.
1. Drill 6-7 25mm holes in the bottom for drainage
2. Lay mesh to stop any mix from falling through. If using fabric mesh, cut a circle and staple to the bottom. If using a wire mesh, cut big enough to just cover each individual hole and staple in place. A cheaper option is to place a stone over each hole, small enough to release water but big enough to stop soil dropping through the hole.
3. Add a liner - will hold the soils moisture and may prolong the life of the barrel as the wood will not be constantly wet for the soil. Options - black polythene sheet, a large black plant pot or growbag. Make sure holes line up for drainage.
4. Add soil - you will need 100ltrs- recommend Potting / tub mix as it contains slow release fert and wetting agents.
We also have access to full barrels on request for $240 each.
