The Q&A Archives: Plant Container

Question: I have a large, round, metal container that was meant for my garden hose but is too small. I'd like to repurpose the container and plant something in it but I'm unsure if the metal would be harmful to plants. Thanks so much,

Answer: The metal won't be harmful to your plants but if you set the container in direct sunshine it could collect heat and burn the roots of your plants. So, I'd use it for shade loving plants or for partial sun plants (morning sunshine only). Enjoy!
