As a nature teacher, I am absolutely delighted with this vertical planter.
The barrel is a little higher than my knees, and about as wide as my feet firmly planted. Fully loaded with one large bag of potting soil, it's as big and heavy as I am willing to muscle around.
I picked the sandstone color, which is true to photo.
We have broccoli going as a fall crop, and are already harvesting greens from the side pockets. Buy the dollie so you can spin it around more easily.

We love our little garden barrel planter!We planted green peppers and many different kinds of herbs. We had an extremely hot and dry summer but with the unique watering system in the garden barrel we had a successful little garden.

My son and I both are big salad eaters. It's wonderful just to go pick some fresh greens. I've made kale chips which both boys eat. My eye Dr. suggested that I really up my kale/Spinach for eye pigment. Having this right outside on the deck is really convenient (and not digging in the mud)

I purchased the garden barrel as a gift for my father for Christmas. Although he hasn't been able to use it yet, he was very excited about it and I was impressed by the size of it. Andy is a very nice guy and I love supporting a local business with a product made in the U.S.A. I look forward to purchasing one for myself and letting others know about it. How convenient to have a mini garden right out your door!

I got one for my mother as well. Before we left her house, she commented that she would probably be buying another one. Great product Andy. And great customer service.
