Fire Ring / Round Raised Bed Planter Empty Fire Ring / Round Raised Bed Planter

Post  OhioGardener Wed 29 Jul 2020 - 8:02

For several years I have used 3' diameter by 1' high fire rings for raised beds, and am using them for raising rhubarb plants.  Was surprised to see that in the latest Tractor Supply Co. flyer that they are now not advertised as just Fire Rings, but as "Fire Ring / Round Raised Bed Planter".  Since these fire rings are open to the bottom, they are excellent for raised bed gardens. Each 3' fire ring is 7 sq ft, and holds 7 cu ft of soil.

Went on-line to look up the item, and in the description they state:


  • EASY SET UP. Create a garden in minutes with no assembly or tools required.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT AND DURABLE. Lasts longer than wooden planters.
  • MULTIPLIES YOUR HARVEST. Produces twice the vegetables in half the time.
  • SAFETY FIRST. Galvanized steel and rounded edges ensures safety for all plants, soils, pets and people.


This new advertising is apparently part of the panic buying of garden supplies that has been taking place of the past several months.

Several years ago, I hired some neighborhood kids to help remove some retaining wall bricks.  They decided to use them to build a fire pit for me.  

Immediately, I thought to use it for planting a few raspberries.  I'd already tried a similar method for some dwarf fruit trees.

That’s hysterical, OG.  My new bed this year is a TSC 48” Fire Ring—before it was re-named!  Works great, my taters are in there and probably getting pulled this weekend.  I would totally do it again, especially with the coupon!  

Question, one rhubarb per 3’ ring?  My rhubarb is struggling in my crappy clay soil....

Yes, I have one Rhubarb plant per 3' ring. I have the same problem with clay soil, and the rhubarb always got crown rot due to the clay staying so wet for so long in the spring. Made it very difficult to grow rhubarb here. They do great in the 1' high raised bed. The roots still grow down into the clay below the bed, but the crown and the bulk of the roots are up in the raised bed soil.

Yes, early spring before they sprout is the best time.  They can also be divided and transplanted in the fall after the leaves die back, but early spring is the best time.

OK, so this past year was the first I supposedly could harvest; it was pretty sparse.  poor thing has been struggling in the hard clay.  

I cannot wait to get this rhubarb into a nice bed with decent growing medium!
