In a desperate search!!!!

I recently placed a large order with Jackson & Perkins due to arrive in October and January and have had a terrible time finding supersized planters! I am looking for something the size of an old bathtub (my original search for an old or unwanted tub went unanswered)that I can use for a large container planting. My online search for even a galvenized steel tub this size proved unsuccessful. Does anyone know of a retailer or used site I might be able to purchase something this size without having to buy an expensive brand new bathing tub?

Have you checked out feed stores...for watering tanks?

Do you have a yahoo Freecycle there? You could post a need on that site. Also we have 2good2toss, where items are free in our area. Maybe your area has the same.

If you haven't found anything yet, try Craig's list, too. The site for Freecycle is and then just click on maps until you get to your state and area.
