These baskets are an inexpensive way to add profits to your plant sales. They have traditionally been used for fall mums, but they also lend to very attractive combination planters and patio planters.
Please remember that untreated baskets need to be grown off the ground to ensure that the bottoms do not rot out under long crop conditions like mums. We find most growers transfer the field mums to the baskets before shipping.
As with all wood products, to extend the life of wood avoid constant contact with water. Proper air circulation, evelated surfaces and drainage will help extend life.
