If I buy a half whiskey barrel at HD, Menard's, or Lowe's, will clear 6
mil plastic be good enough for lining it so it will hold water? I
assume
it won't hold water without a liner even after the wood swells up.
I want
to plant a lotus seedling in it. I'm too cheap to buy a commercial
barrel
liner. Thanks.

Buy a cheap shower curtain liner at WalMart.


Or maybe some store, like maybe Costco, that treats their staff like
human beings, and doesn't throw them on the taxpayers for medical
care. And does not force their suppliers to cut prices so far that
they, in turn, are forced to go offshore, costing more Americans their
jobs.

Frontline -- the best program on TV for my money -- a few months ago
aired a thorough examination of Walmart's ripple effect on our
economy.

They cost less than $4. Line
barrel and cut of excess. They're heavy enough to last several years,
if not
longer.



Not eveyone has acess to a Costco. Everyone has a WalMart. Yes, I agree,
they're pretty bad but you can find anything there for less than
anywhere else. For those of us who are retired or making a low income,
they're the place to shop.


No $ General? Importer, but they don't claim otherwise.

I had a bisected whiskey butt now for 5 years and it swells and does not aperture at all. This year I accept two ponds for my lotus and waterlilies so I accept the whiskey butt acclimated for a nice container planting application phormium, different vinca minor, esperanza and variegated morning glories. I'll yield photos if it's abounding in.
