Found it difficult to get the X large jacket around a 50cm pot . The polystyrene base is in 4 sections which are placed on the base of the jacket, but they aren't held in position, so move easily. The pot, with 75 litres of soil, was too heavy to lift and so had to be 'slid' into the jacket. While doing this the polystyrene base cracked. Looks ok now, but won't be taking the jacket off in a hurry!
Took a bit of effort to get the large jacket around the rather heavy pot as no husband in sight when I needed a hand. I won't be removing it in a hurry. Now looks nice and snug despite putting it around a square pot. No risk of it detaching in high winds and I have no doubt it will protect the contents very well. The colour is unobtrusive in the garden and it seems well-made. will be interested to see how well it drains.
I recently purchased 4 of these pot jackets and already 2 of my large citrus and nectarine are tucked in like a bug in a snug! Its easy to put on and knowing i won't be worrying about them during the dreaded winter months! Would definitely recommend together with the fleece jackets to complete overall winter and frost protection.

Protect plants and pots by wrapping them up in a horticultural insulating fleece or jacket pot, you can prevent too much frost damage. The thin fabric lets light and water in but keeps the plants warm underneath. They will stay snug and protected till late winter when you can remove it.
