Planting Advice

All the planting advice you need for the Polanter.

The Polanter is hung onto walls or fences with the brackets provided. The brackets remain fixed to the wall and the Polanter can be lifted off the brackets to enable it to be re-planted and then easily re-hung by slotting the Polanter back onto the brackets.
