The large size allows you to plant many different types of vegetables, herbs and flowers all at once.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Large Planter?

The most important factor is size. Make sure you have sufficient space for the Large Planter you are going to buy. It should not be too big or small for your garden, balcony, terrace, etc. Otherwise it will look odd and out of place when in use.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Large Planter?


They are great for growing large plants like tomatoes, peppers and eggplants. The larger size also allows you to grow more than one plant in the same container which is a huge advantage if you’re limited on space or just want to get as much out of your garden as possible.


The disadvantages of a Large Planter are that it is very expensive to build and maintain. It requires more time for planting, harvesting, watering and weeding than the other two types of planters.
