7", shallow depth whiskey barrel liner, to be use with 1/2 whiskey barrel, converts whiskey barrel planter into water tight container, makes soil transfer easy, durable construction, allows liner to function independently as planters or a multi purpose container.
You may recall that this pond was nothing more than a full-height (or is it full-depth?) MacCourt Whiskey Barrel Liner with a heater in place and an assortment of unattached aquatic plants growing in it, including Java Moss, Water Lettuce and Golden Moneywort. I had stocked this tank with Betta smaragdina “Guitar,” one male and several females, in the hopes of seeing a lot of reproduction.
Whiskey barrel liners are available in two different sizes, 24" diameter for 1/2 whiskey barrels and 20" diameter for full whiskey barrels. The liners are 15" deep made from rigid durable plastic and will extend the life of your whiskey barrel planters, water gardens or fountains by many years.
It's a dirty process, so an optional piece of equipment to use during the planting stage is a whiskey barrel liner or other large tub to catch the water, dirt, and moss that falls from the basket. In my greenhouse, I have a wood floor, so the liner catches everything making clean up a breeze. Even if you plant this outside on your deck, this will keep your deck clean too.
