This is a very difficult question to answer. The plastic from the swimming pool will almost assuredly leech BPA and other endocrine disruptors into the soil planted. However, there has been research to show that certain plants have the ability to metabolize the harmful chemicals that come from plastics. I personally would not take the chance as we are already exposed to enough of these chemicals in our daily lives. However, this one is your call.
Thank you. I wasn’t aware of endocrine disruptors. Sounds like the plastic tubs will go to the recycle center.
Glad I could help! Happy gardening!
