Talkback: How to make a slate planter

An excellent cheap and easy way of making an expensive looking planter. Just check out the cost of of similar items in garden centres.


  • But how many people have an angle grinder?!

    I have 2 welsh slate planters - easy to make even without the wooden box inside. Find 4 slates that will form a box shape ( 2 of one size, 2 of another). Just drill holes in the corners of all the slates and thread wire through, and twist tight. Water drains out through sides so no need to drill holes in the base. Good for echeverias and cowslips. Will put a photo up on 'Sue T' very soon.
  • Isn't slate notoriously prone to cracking?
