Burlap ~ A Thrifty Container Liner

8.1K Views
Container planting baskets and hayracks are such lovely garden accents, but have you seen how much the replacement liners cost? Ours had lasted about five years but were finally too tattered to look good or hold the soil in the container any more. Coco-fiber replacement liners were twenty dollars or more apiece! So I turned to burlap to get that same great natural look for a fraction of the price!

    My daughter-in-law tried this last year and she said it got to looking really ratty and stained so she wouldn't use it again but it does look cool when new.

      @Barb Rosen Yes, that is probably the reason it got to looking ratty. I have used the diapers before and it does work well!

    Margie..so sorry you gals do not have Garden Ridge stores or you would go crazy there. I did get new very large cocoa liners there for about $2.99 each, wish I had known about the burlap, as it would look really nice and maybe my wild birds would not

    @Jo Anne Johns wish I had them here too. I just priced some 12" ones at HomeDepot and they were 4.99 what the hey the whole container with liner is 9.99. Sometime Big Lots has them for a reasonable price.
