Thinking about real estate and the cost per square foot? Planting in wine barrels offers space for cheap. Though half wine barrels can be bought for as little as $25 each, you can expect to pay between $40 to $60, which is still reasonable considering how spacious these planters can be. In this short video, I decided to line my half wine barrel with black plastic to protect my planting from too much acidity. Watch the video to see how simple lining and planting can be. Weeks later, my newly planted privets are happy and thriving!!!
