Reluctant to think of planting anything edible in here...don't know what the wood has been treated with.

I think they had to heavily discount this as it's an ASSEMBLE IT YOURSELF thing.

If there is moisture in the box/soil, Couldn't something potentially leech?

Having said that, do we know there's an issue or we speculating without any basis? i don't see any warnings or disclaimers on the listing.

I mean... Don't farmers use poop in their soil so their crops/food grow better?

Yeah but those are organic materials that feed the vegetables. Not the toxic chemicals present In pressure treated lumber that can cause diseases.

So use it for decoration/landscaping. It doesn't say "above ground garden" for it.

You'd want to use untreated lumber or cedar for that.

Staple cheap plastic lining on inside of the box, then staple landscape fabric over that. No leeching possible, plus box will last longer from the inside. A $2 modification tops, if you need to buy plastic and fabric new for multiple boxes.

Poisoning from pressure-treated wood isn't exactly tin hat material, it contains arsenic, chromium, and copper. The chemicals don't migrate very far from the wood, but crops with wide root systems could definitely soak up quite a bit. A few sporadic harvests wouldn't hurt, but chronic exposure can have some really terrible effects. This planter is definitely suited for decorative plants only. Here's a link if you'd like to check it out

At least I know my bottled water uses plastic that is safe for food. Is your plastic lining safe for vegi or food?

That's the funny thing, you don't. You don't know how that water is filtered. You take the statement about the bottle's origin at face value. You don't know how long the bottles have been in the hot warehouse. Hell' if it was so safe then the relief water that sat for 12 months down in Puerto Rico would have been safe too. Guess what, deemed unsafe

Also, newsflash, adding the landscape fabrice OVER the plastic was to prevent any periphery roots from touch the construction plastic. (Which is designed with intent to WEATHER conditions inside and outside a house, so it by design doesnt leach or degrade.)

Which I guarandamntee is barely designed into most of those Chinese manufactured garden pot/boxes. Hell' a large portion of your new wave kitchen items were derived by chefs from damn construction equipment/construction supply mash ups.

So yeah, I know it's safe and I even tossed in a secondary layer of safety for you neurotic mouthy soccer mom know nothings.

Oh, and P.S. All plastic is inherently unsafe, because most of it is rarely used properly. I can only imagine how many of you rubes routinely microwave food in plastic, without knowning any of the foods that can't be cooked in plastic no matter how "safe" the manufacturer says it is

I genuinely feel dumber for having to respond to such inanity. No wonder people in the service industry hate so many of you.

(Lastly, if it's that big of a deal then use Syran wrap in your kitchen drawer dummy.)
