Try peat moss or pCked around the sides or even some bark it will not rot as fast as the bark and wii look a lot better

Re: Dipping tins

Love your dipping tins @MaryW3121. They look fantastic.

 

Let me also extend to you, @Paradise@OsmayG and @Dawn12 a very warm welcome to the Workshop community. It's fantastic to have you join us and we look forward to reading more about your projects and plans very soon. Please feel free to post anytime you need a hand or have something to share. 

 

@Dawn12 - I don't believe you could buy anything like these old Grape tins from Bunnings, but I'm sure members like @kaylah_rose might like to give you some suggestions, such as vintage and antique stores. Where are you based?

Hi @Sunrise.

 

Let me notify @kaylah_rose for you to see if they can provide some information on the source.

 

There seem to be a few people selling them online on Gumtree or perhaps you could try some local antique stores in your area.

@Dawn12  @Sunrise Sorry for the delay! I didn't see these. 

I got mine from an antique shop in Melbourne 😀

 

But you can find them on Gumtree, Ebay etc

Some nurseries have them too!

 

Hope that helps!

Re: Dipping tins

They look lovely @MaryW3121 can I ask if you treated them with anything to stop them rusting through?

Just came across this great project @kaylah_rose  and am wondering how your cute planters are faring? I love the vintage, rustic look you’ve achieved.

Re: Dipping tins

No. They are about 7 yrs old and no sign of rust. I lined them with green mesh stuff that I got from Bunnings. 
Maybe the dipping bins are treated with something before the orchardist treated them in someway before use??
