        Comments about 30" 2 x 6 Railing Planter:

        I bought two and liked them so much I purchased another. The planters fit very well on my deck rail, hold more soil and plants than I imagined. The planters drain well, but still retain enough moisture so the plants don't dry out - even in 100 degree Texas summer!

            Comments about 30" 2 x 6 Railing Planter:

            My neighborhood is full of rabbits and deer, so I decided to do my kitchen gardening in pots on my deck where the critters won't bother the plants. I bought both a 24" and a 30" planter in red. Note: the 30" planter is 6" deep and can handle larger veggies. The 24" planter is only ~4" deep, so I'm using it for herbs and lettuce. Both planters have been sitting in beaming south sun since May and have not faded yet. I used a heat gun to remove the stickers. My old 2x6 railings are cracked and expanded, so the planter has to sit a little crooked to fit, but it still didn't move a millimeter in the highest wind. Even filled with soil, it's still light enough to lift off the railing if you need to move it.

            I drilled some larger holes in the bottom for better drainage, but the planter could be converted to self-water by plugging the holes and dumping plastic pieces in the bottom.

            Overall, they look and work great! This fall I'm going to buy another 30" planter so I can grow more beans in the spring.

              Comments about 30" 2 x 6 Railing Planter:

              This planter fits perfectly on the railing of my deck. I was skeptical at first thinking they would blow off when we got some of the strong storms and wind but they fit securely on the 2x6 and stay sturdy without the use of screws or nails. This is an amazing product !!

              Comments about 30" 2 x 6 Railing Planter:

              I purchased these for a house I just moved into. We can get high winds and driving rains so I wanted planter boxes that fit snugly on my railings. These do the job. For some reason, I thought that they were self-watering like some of the other planter boxes I have gotten from this site. I think it was because the price for these and the self-watering style are nearly the same. These are not self watering and I think the price is high for what is really a lightweight molded piece of plastic. I do wish these were available in a self-watering version.

                These railing planters are perfect. They fit my porch rails snug so no chance of them falling off on windy days. They're very attractive, sturdy and drain very well. An excellent product and very affordable. Items arrived in perfect condition and right on time as promised. Thank you for excellent service.

                    We needed to replace some worn out planters on our deck, and these were the perfect fit! Easy to install. No tools necessary. Just set on the railing. Add soil and plants. Six evenly spaced drainage holes to prevent standing water from accumulating.
                    Some reviews mentioned that the product stickers and UPC code labels were hard to remove. We didn't have that problem at all. (A little WD-40 helps remove any residue.)

                      These saddle planters are great! I purchased one last year for the 6"-wide railing around my deck. It worked beautifully and I was very pleased with it so I purchased two more this year. As they are a little pricey when you add in the shipping, I plan on purchasing two more each year until I have gone all the way around my deck. PLEASE do not discontinue offering them! The only problem I ran into was getting off all the "sticky" from the label that was on them. If you don't get it all off, the dirt adheres to the glue over the course of the summer. Not to end on a bad note, I am very pleased with these planters and would readily recommend them to any gardener!
