Are Concrete Planters OK for Plants?

Concrete planters are nontoxic to plants. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes including square, round, rectangle and urn-like. Concrete planters are heavy to move once filled and require frequent watering due to their porous nature. Coating the inside with sealer makes them less porous, reducing water requirements.
