If your barrel does not have drainage, drill 1/4 to 1/2 inch holes that are a minimum of 6 inches apart. It is also a good idea to pop your barrel in a sunny location.

Another good tip is to have it elevated on bricks or something similar. This will allow it to drain correctly, and for the air to circulate properly.
