Answer of the Week: Basket Planters (On the Veranda)

I had a question on Pinterest two days ago about this basket planter collection:

And the person was concern about weather protection:

I am going to tell you all what it says on the card you get with every product you purchase from Longaberger.  on the card, it tells you a little bit about the product, and how to take care of it.

Caring for Your Collection:

This collection can be used both indoors and outdoors, and is designed for durability with polyethylene weaving and heavy duty metal frames that have two premium metal coatings to guard against scratches and rusting.

The Collection is:

  • Weather resistant
  • Rust resistant
  • Scratch resistant
  • Fade resistant

To best care for your pieces, bring indoors during freezing conditions.   Clean with mild soap and damp cloth.  Dry thoroughly.  Do not use products containing harsh chemicals or abrasives cleaners as they can cause damage.

If you are on the fence of purchasing these planters because of conditions brought on by the outdoors, you can always use them as strictly indoors planters, but know that you can use them outdoors as well.
Don't just use them as just planters.   This is just a guideline for what you can use them for.   I tell customers that all the time.  Do keep in mind that there is a drainage hole at the bottom of each planter, so if you plan on using the 6" planter as a pen and pencil holder in the office, you might want to put something at the bottom to keep them from slipping through.  

This collection comes in four sizes:  6", 9", 12" and 14".  No protector or liner, because of the intended use. There is a matching tray that comes with the collection in case you might want to serve meals outside as well.  this does come with a protector, but the tray is made with the same materials as the planter collection.   I will say that these are perfect for a container garden (12" and 14"), while the smaller two (6" and 9") would be perfect for single plants or if you want to start a seed off.  

If you have a question about these and other Longaberger products, please email me at  I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Have a blessed day.
