Plastic Potato Barrel

Compared with the wooden planter, this plastic potato barrel is cheaper. It sells for 95 bucks at Amazon.

It’s made of polypropylene. (A plastic used to used these days to make everything from chairs to the Tic Tac box lids!)

The reviews are pretty strong. Amazon has one negative review, but the 94 reviews on Primrose average 4 out of 5 stars. In general, people say it’s a bit tough to assemble, but works well.

The sales copy says this planter holds up to 5 potato plants. That’s 21 gallons (80 liters) of compost
