I spend an hour or so one afternoon making this plant pot. In the few weeks that have past since then my Norfolk Island Pine has been doing much better, so it must like it!

Good looking planter David. Will the watering eventually rot the wood as it looks like you have not treated it in any way

Hello Derek, yes, it will eventually rot the wood, but this wood rots fairly slowly, and by the time that it is finally of no use the pine will need to be re-potted into something bigger anyway, so I'm not really worried about that. It's just been built to meet a temporary need, not a permanent one. In the meantime however, my wife and I are both enjoying seeing it, and in the few weeks that's it's been there the pine has certainly improved. I kind of see the pot itself as slow release fertiliser for the tree lol.
