- Cedar will slowly develop a grey patina and last for many years without any maintenance.
- To extend the life of the wood, treat with linseed or tung oil once a year.
- Evenly spread out the bed slats approximately 1/4-1/2" apart for draining.
- Soil may sift through the gaps when filling the bed for the first time. Once planted, the soil will not fall out, but the gaps will allow for drainage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ankhamun from best planter I own I really love this farmer D product. I was afraid that the sun would wear it down but so far its been great w/out any damage. I've grown squash and a jalapeno plant in it so far and now I'm on to garlic. I was very sick last week and so thankful that I had this planter to work in when I wanted to get out of the house for a little bit. It is high enough that I didn't have to over exert myself. Even though they say that the dirt won't come out of the slats after the initial fill I was weary and lined mine with some weed blocker. I still have really good water drainage and I feel better about it :)Date published: 2014-10-03Rated 5 out of 5 by curiouscattts from Best urban garden ever I have three Farmer D planters between my sidewalk and the street - the only place my shady yard has sun. My herb garden is gorgeous. I grew tomatoes this summer and plan greens for a winter garden. So much fun to pick fresh herbs and veggies just before cooking.Date published: 2013-08-30Rated 5 out of 5 by country52 from easy gardening This planter is great.

It is the perfect height to easily tend to plants -Date published: 2013-06-25Rated 2 out of 5 by AKWF from Arrived damaged. Quality control missed a split bracket. Made an effort to buy Made in the USA stuff and this is what I get. Whoever's in charge of screwing in the brackets that hold the bottom of the planter in place needs to use a little more care. Was able to replace the bracket with a piece of wood from a hardware store. Didn't want to hassle with putting the thing back in the box and having to deal with shipping it back. Seems sturdy though and hopefully will last a long time.Date published: 2013-04-28Rated 5 out of 5 by kodie from Great for balcony gardeners This is great for balcony gardeners. Excellent quality woods, very sturdy, easy to assemble.. Space saving is a plus since you can use the areas below for seed starting, for shade friendly vegetables . I liked it so much I ordered one more^^ The Aroma from cedar wood makes you feel like you are in a spa~~ I put natural moss in between the planks before adding my organic soil so when watering, the excess water seeps out while the soil stays in^^Date published: 2013-01-26
