"The sides of the potato barrel are cardboard or plasticised cardbord and the unit seems very flimsy. The unit was difficult to assemble and frankly appears to be unlikely to last more than 1 growing season. I am extremely dissapointed with it. However the delivery service was excellent."

"The standard of the potato barrel was appalling - it was bought as a gift and was embarrassing when the recipient opened it and tried to assemble it. For £42.50 it was dreadful value for money and has been returned for a refund."

"The item arrived with a part missing, looked nothing like the pictures on the web site or on the packaging and was so flimsy that it was effectively not suitable for the purpose for which it was purchased i.e. growing potatoes. I'm still waiting for my money back as I returned the item over a week ago."

"I was extremely disappointed with the two victorian potatoe barrels I bought from your site. They were very poor quality, were difficult to assemble and also fell apart when moved. They were completely useless, unusable and a waste of time and money. "

""Victorian" potato barrel: I am sorry to say I am very disappointed in these barrels. They are made of corrugated plastic which does not appear to be very rigid. The parts of the barrels do not fit together well. I think that once they are full of compost they may not allow the cover to slide up and down as shown on the advertising because the plastic will bulge under the weight of the soil. I would have sent them back but it will cost me a further 12-13 pounds on top of the 5 pounds I paid for delivery and I would rather not spend any more on not having a satisfactory product. I would not recommend these planters to other customers and I can see why they are now half price as I imagine you might want to be shot of them."
