I have a small wooden wagon I want to plant small flowers in. Nothing over 12 " tall. They would be in full sun and need to be deer proof, if there is such a thing. I don't want the wood to rot. Thought of using the disposable tin foil pans. Would these heat up the dirt too much and bake them? I live in So Central TX and summer days are often 95 - 100. Would plastic be better?

The tin foil shouldn't.

If your worried about it. You can just use white spray paint on the outside of them. That will help refelct some of the sun's rays.

Thanks Greenceed. I'll quit worrying about it. I seem to kill the most hardy things fairly often. Now to figure out what to plant that the deer won't eat. They even ate my Christmas Cactus one year.
