These are made with the green skin on to protect against the British weather. I was ask have been asked how long these last in the garden. So I made myself one and used it in my own garden to test their durability which when calculated was around three years, if not treated annually with pretector. If the item is coated with protection then couls last twice as long.
I have tried to give an educated account of life span so I do not get customers returning to me disappointed.
