Using big animal watering troughs as containers?
Has anyone tried using watering troughs as containers for plants? We saw a home in Albuquerque that had quit a few set up that way. They had just planted theirs so it was hard to tell what results to expect. We're in zone 8/9, and have plenty of rabbits and javalinas as frequent eaters.
I'm thinking of 2 oval troughs, 2 feet x 6 feet x 2 feet deep. Any ideas as far as ability to survive hot weather? How to protect against rabbits, javalinas, and/or deer?
