Planters are best filled with a fine gravel in the base covered by a good peat free multipurpose compost. We recommend using a further organic fertilizer like GroChar soil improved mixed with Seamungus seaweed and poultry manure for fantastic results. Container growing is intensive and you are asking a lot from your soil or compost, make sure it's well fed and you'll won't be dissapointed with your crops. The most common reason for poor crops in container growing is low nutrient levels. Vegetables are very hungry plants and need to be pampered to give you the return you expect.
The Italian made 'Plasticotta' planters are made from a very hardwearing thermoplastic UV-stabalised resin. It is light yet tough and is particularly resistant to long exposure to the sun. They are also frost resistant making it one of the longest lasting plant containers on the market.
