I made these two planter boxes for a Christmas present for my Sister. She has two potted plants sitting in them either side of her front door.They are made from treated pine fence palings and i also gave them a coat of linseed oil.
I'd like to ask whether chemically treated palings are appropriate to use in planter boxes for edible plants?
