How to Measure your own Container for a JRB Planter Insert
To ensure the planter insert will fit, it’s important you measure your container properly. Using a tape measure, measure the interior of the container; including:
Measuring a container:
1) width of the top inside of the container
2) width at the bottom inside of the container
3) height from bottom to the top of the inside of the container
JRB Planter Insert measurements:
1) 13.75” wide at the top
2) 9.5” wide at the bottom
3) 12.75” high
If the interior of your own container is taller than the our insert then just add soil or mulch inside your pot to raise the it to the height of the rim. If the width of your container at the inside top of your own container is greater than 15.5” then it will probably be too big to be used for a JRB insert.
Your own container needs to have a drainage hole to allow water to drain, as it needs to be regularly watered. If there is no drainage it will not thrive.
