Burlap ~ A Thrifty Container Liner

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!

    I am looking forward this weekend to using burlap as liners.

    Is there an easy way to line the baskets with the burlap fabic?

    I see all sorts of methods online.

    Many thanks.

    on Apr 4, 2014 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 shred it for their nests??LOL Also if you have Big Lots Stores they do have cocoa liners very inexpensive also. Happy gardening ladies!

    @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.
