I think so.But I cant make these things anymore so I pay.
$50.00 each. What do you think ?
They havnt completely cured so it will be about a week before the plants arrive that its safe to put them outside.
They are supposed to be OK outside in winter.

I think so. She and I talked about 12 inches,she must have meant outside measure.
I probably wont order any more.
I have a great bunch of semps and alpines coming and the woman who made these sells tham at a local garden store.I will be checking those out as soon as the snow melts

I agree ... they should be larger for the price, IMHO.

Thanks for conferming what I suspected.
I was a bit disappointed when she opened them to show me the holes in the bottom.They seemed smaller than I imagined.
I am used to paying 20 dollars for 40 gallon containers at The Cristnmass Tree Shopp. So these were a surprise.
She is very guarded about the mix she uses,thats O K with me. She designs the North American Rock Garden Societys display at the Philadelphia Flower show.
I found her by Googling Hypertufa planters,just lucky she lives here.

I'm hoping for some fiber type low planters at The Christmass Tree Shope in April.
I need something that can stay out all winter.
I'll get one more planter for the overflow of plants.
