Half oak barrel planter, coopered from repurposed whisky barrels.

SKU: 1/2 Barrel Planter Category: Tag:


Our half barrel planters are heavy oak, seasoned by years of use in distilleries.  Our skilled team of coopers re-hoop and pin them to ensure a long life.

A timeless classic planter, they are ideal for any garden, whether you want to plant flowers, shrubs or vegetables.  We grow strawberries in ours and we’re sure there’s a hint of whisky!  The XXL size is perfect for potato crops.

All our half barrels are prepared to order and you can be sure that the wood is of the best quality unlike the flimsy imitations which will fall apart after a year or two.  Ours will easily last for 15 years with minimal maintenance.

You can order them in natural for a more rustic look, with the hoops painted black, or with the wood stained dark oak and the hoops painted.

We can also drill drainage holes in the bottom if you’d like, just select that option when you place your order. Each planter will have a single hole in the bottom otherwise.

If you need the planter to be watertight, please let us know.

Available in:-

1/2 Barrel Planter – 62 x 38 cm (24 x 15 inches).
XXL 1/2 Barrel Planter – 100 x 640 cm (40 x 25 inches)

Please note that all these measurements are external, and there may be variations due to the natural properties of the oak timber, the source and the original construction of the barrel.
