The measurements on the website are incorrect. This was bigger than I was expecting and although a similar product is not the same as the product in the picture.

I had been eying this item up for some time but during the sale it was reduced to a price I could afford so I purchased it. It is sturdy and exactly right for the area I wanted to place it in. It can be painted/stained to match surrounding wood work and strong enough to hold big troughs and pots. The angle and height of the planters ensures that plants aren't restricted by the trough above. Although I was late in the season in planting I would imagine that using trailing plants in the top two levels will produce a lovely cascade uniting the whole display as a wall of colour.

I spent 2 hours assembling this.
Not easy to follow the instructions.
Assembly is much easier if you have a friend or a pet octopus.
It comes packaged in a kind of nylon net that hooks over the buttons on your jacket when you carry it home ... you are in danger of either losing the buttons on your jacket or getting a hernia trying to untangle your jacket with one hand while balancing this (quite heavy) item using a leg and an arm.
Major point is that once assembled the bottom fell out one of the boxes because the screws that hold the bottoms are so short that they only catch by about 1/4 inch maybe less. I'm very grateful to Homebase that this fell apart before I put plants in ... save a mess. So, buy this only if you have the means to effect repairs - i.e screws, drill, nails etc.
Being practical - the wood is of reasonable quality and it looks the part.
That other home retailer have one with shelves for about half the cost - admittedly it does't have boxes but ...
