I have used these containers for more than 18 months up in Gauteng. They are extremely durable and functional. They show no sign of degrading or weathering. They are very aesthetically pleasing. I would definitely recommend using it.
These containers are just wonderful! My yorkies can no longer steal (and eat!) my Bonsai Boost! Was also rather weary of being asked why I have tea bags in my pots. Seriously, a sensible purchase - now I just need to get more!
I did not used any other baskets to compare them to. I was so impress with the product that I bought another 3 packets end of 2017.
Bought the fertilizer baskets 2 years ago when they first became available. The plastic became brittle and does not seem to be UV ray resistant to the Zululand sun. After being used for 2 years in full sun with summer temperature in the mid 40 degrees the baskets became so brittle that they disintegrate when they are opened for refills
Hello Hendrik, I am truly sorry this has been your experience. Have you used any other baskets which have held up to the sun after the same period?
I found the containers very handy in keeping my Bonsaiboost fertilizer sachets out of reach of birds and other nocturnal vermin. Their appearance is also pleasing.
