Large Keter Garden Planter 2 Year Update 6/10/2020

I have had the Keter 31 Gallon Planter outside in the elements for 2 years and here is how it looks today! So far the Keter Easy Grow system does work well even with someone who does not have a green thumb!

    Some folks in one of my garden groups say to use male or dog urine to keep the deer away

  2. Shelby Slocum on November 6, 2021 at 10:54 am

    Crushed red pepper will help keep the deer away, as well as raccoons or opossums

  5. pete caco on November 6, 2021 at 10:56 am

    I have heard that deer don’t like Irish Spring Soap. Never encountered this problem before.

    Is that the all-weather, self watering Keter planter or the Keter Full Bloom Elevated Garden, Resin Raised Planter?

    Chicken wire cafe would work.

    I have no good advice to keep deer away, but the plant container is smart with water indicator and drainage holeπŸ‘

    I am thinking about buying this planter. The instructions on the web site say if you plan to leave it out where it’s exposed to rainfall to use it as an "open" system. Does this imply that you leave the drain caps out during assembly and you leave the end drain valve open all the time? Does it have a set reservoir of water that would drain out automatically if it gets above a certain water height level?

    I use bird netting, and bamboo stakes. I put stakes in the 4 corners and wrap the bird netting around them , IT WORKS

    Hey there! Thanks for the info! I just bought a Keeter and just filled and planted it tonight with potting soil and herbs. When I watered everything, the water table "flower" didn’t pop up. Instead, water started flooding out from the bottom in sheets of water (not from where the plug is located) Any suggestions??? I sure don’t want to pull all the dirt out and return it. What a pain! I’m hoping whatever happened will be a "quick adjustment" and the water table alert will start working properly. Also, just wanted to put in my "2 cents worth" about the deer. I live in Eastern Oregon and before that, I lived in Northern Idaho. I have been surrounded by deer all my life and it can be so disheartening to wake up in the morning and find all my lettuce gone. I have just learned to plant "deer resistant" plants. Here is a website that I’ve found helpful. And for those plants that I really want to grow that are "not" deer resistant, I just put them on my deck which happens to be 10 feet off the ground. :o) Also, just because it says "deer resistant" doesn’t mean that the deer will stay away all the time. If they are hungry enough, they will each pretty much anything, as I’m sure you already know! Good luck! And if anyone knows what’s up with my new Keeter, please let me know. Thanks!

    Put the planter on your deck if you have one. I put growbags on my deck 3 yrs in a row with huge success x an occasional squirrel.
    Trouble posting my tip 4 deer. See these items on Amazon, you’ll get it.

    Fences , tall and wide around things you wish to keep. You can try plants that deer don’t particularly like like marigolds, salvias , lavender , thorny plants and those that are fuzzy , like lambs ear. Plant them around and through areas where you have deer issues.
    That Keeter bed is nice . Is that one spout enough drainage?

    What part of the country do you live in?

  17. margaret urz on November 6, 2021 at 11:30 am

    I got this planter this year and it is challenging compared to my city pickers garden beds. The major flaw is there should be openings to let the water out at some point. I’m seriously considering adding holes to it.

    as a wildlife biologist the only thing that will deter them is building a fence that will stop them from getting to your crops.

  19. Vince Maynard on November 6, 2021 at 11:36 am

    add human hair but if not afraid of folks do not know

  20. A V on November 6, 2021 at 11:39 am

    How about one of those motion-sensing sprinkler that give the deer a squirt of water when they approach your planter?! Link:

  21. World Composting on November 6, 2021 at 11:41 am

    Let me know what you do to keep the deer away!

  22. DeShaune Lockett on November 6, 2021 at 11:44 am

    Have you tried using a citronella plant? This is what I read πŸ‘‰ Citronella plants can thrive in full to part sun and can grow in any well-draining soil. … Mosquito plants are drought and heat tolerant and deer resistant. The Citronella plant is hardy in zones 9-11. Also mint can overtake your garden, plant it by itself.😊

    They know that trick. It may work for a while though. You can get the HEAVY GAUGE deer netting, Not the stuff at Home Depot. That’s too hard to work with and birds get caught in it, very sad. I bought 2 & 3′ stakes, put in the planter zip tied to the stakes.
    Hope this helps.
    P.S. Growing tomatoes, cucumbers, squash in grow bags on the deck. Deck is elevated 4′ or so.
