Rated 5 out of 5 by BackyardGardener from Funky and Groundhog-Proof! I've had this for two years now. Last year I planted herbs in it, and it was lovely and practical. After the groundhogs ate all the peas I planted in my garden several times, I stuck a few among the herbs. Those were the only peas that survived the pesky critters. This year, I planted bush beans around the edge and chard down the center, intending to transplant it. The groundhogs ate all the peas, beans, and chard in my main garden again. But the beans in this tub gave me four harvests, and I didn't have to bend over to get them! Although it was expensive, it looks cool and is very practical! I would definitely purchase it again. I lined the bottom with a layer of different sized stones to help with drainage and used potting soil. I suppose you also could use it as an outdoor ice bucket for a party, or to bathe small dogs, but I love it as a planter next to my vegetable garden.Date published: 2016-08-23Rated 5 out of 5 by lovncolor from So Unique and Beautiful!

I have long admired this bathtub and stand. I am so glad I bought it. It is perfect for icing beverages for a party or filling with soil and creating an herb garden. My dilemma is solved by lining the tub with plastic and putting large pots of herbs in it. That way I can remove the pots for use when entertaining. I will use it indoors in the winter to keep my herbs available year round. I am well pleased. Great quality.Date published: 2015-06-02Rated 5 out of 5 by SandySLW from Herb garden Best herb garden ever !!!!
