We’re all using a lot of wine barrels in decorating and gardening these days, aren’t we! I have two on my patio already, one with a dwarf apple tree, and one with some annual flowers. I paid top price for my pre-cut half barrels this summer, but did you know that you can buy full barrels and cut them in half yourself and save a lot of money? I Googled sources in my home state, which is far from being wine country, and I found several! This tutorial will give you the best ways to cut your barrel and finish it, so it’ll be even better than the pre-cut. Hmm.. I’m thinking of expanding my dwarf fruit trees next Spring, or maybe adding a water feature with water lilies and fish!
