Perennials in half barrels
can perennials be planted in half barrels and live? If so, any suggestions?
Almost any perennial can be grown in a half whiskey barrel. One thing to keep in mind is that plants grown in containers are more exposed during the winter, so that a good rule of thumb to follow is to use only plants hardy to about 2 Zones colder than where you live.
