Q.Bottomless Planter Cylinder

Zone Niagara ontario canada | Odiejcwilson added on July 10, 2022 | Answered

I am having difficulty understanding how rodents and insects can invade the buried cylinder container once corralling the plants against the invasive roots. kindly explain further and is this something I should be worried? Also, what would be the best bottomless cylinder container I should be using to plant below the ground that does not disintegrate over the long period of time? Thank you for your help and assistance to this matter.

Burrowing rodents can make their way through thick roots, and depending on the type of plant that you choose, they may try and eat the roots. Being bottomless, there is opportunity for them to get inside of the containment.

Typically, most use HDPE plastic, as this takes a very long time to degrade, naturally.
