In climates with the potential for freezing temperatures, extra care must be used. Rapid temperature changes and the resulting expansion and contraction of the clay can be damaging. If possible, planters should be moved indoors during freezing conditions. Larger planters may be covered with fabric that extends to the ground to prevent sudden freezing.
When cleaning pottery, do not use harsh or abrasive chemicals or objects. Use warm, soapy water and a soft scrubber.
Our Wood planters come factory sealed for ease of use, however the wood must be re-sealed or stained on an annual basis to prevent the wood from drying out, cracking or rotting. Prolonged storage without planting or sealing may result in shrinkage and separation of joints.
