The original Orto planter box with wicking bed technology is made from locally grown pine and built in the tradition of fruit'n'veg market crates.
The planters box is treated with linseed soil on the outside and lined with plastic tank liner on the inside to enhance longevity, but they will go grey as they age like the rest of us.
Castors are optional but recommended if you want to move the planter to the best sun position during the year or just push out of the way when you need the deck for other uses.
The water reservoir is situated below the soil in tank made from food grade recycled polyethylene. Its 5mm thick so you don't need to worry about putting a tomato stake through it, and comes fitted with a bottom mounted overflow pipe which allows for easy flushing and level checking.
