Surface imperfections on the planter
The planters are handmade and thus each planter will have its own unique surface marks and pits. This is the nature of handmade products and each planter is 1 of 1.
The surface will show small production marks or hand finished corners. They are not machine produced and will not look equal to the same specification.
What will happen if I block the drainage hole when the planter is outside?
The planter will swell from inside as there is no natural path for excess water to run off from. This in effect will cause damage to the planter causing buckling and swelling.
Please keep the drainage channel clear or use a honey comb structure in the base to prolong the life of your planters when using your planters outdoors.
