    Great product!

    By AZponygirl

    from Glendale, AZ

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Durable
    • Easy to set up
    • Works Great

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Patio Garden

      Living in Arizona, watering is critical for a plant to survive. These self-watering troughs are great! They can go about a week before getting watered, so if I go on vacation and the neighbor forgets to water, the plants still have water to get them through until I get home. I will definately order more in the fall!

      Too small a reservoir

      By mwcdesigns

      from Porland, Oregon metro area

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

        Cons

        • Poor Instruction Sheet
        • Water Every Day

        Best Uses

        • Inside
        • Patio Garden

        I didn't expect to need to water this planter every day, but it is July and the hottest season, so perhaps that will be the case in other seasons. I suggest that the instructions include diagrams.

        Pros

        • They last

        Cons

          Best Uses

            These planters are sturdy, durable, maintain their coloration and the best buy for the price. I ordered several at least 6 years ago and they're still going strong. ...ordered six more this year and am about to order more. They can be used anywhere and for just about anything. I've not only planted directly into them, but placed old, worn cocoa matted window boxes in them. Plants don't dry out nearly as quickly. Herbs love them too. A GREAT BUY!

            Pros

            Best Uses

            • Planted Lettuce And Thyme

            I like the long size for planting two rows of leaf lettuce. The seeds have sprouted and I'm thinking they will produce a good harvest for fresh salads all summer.

            We are using the self watering troughs to grow our vegees weed free. My wife and I enjoy how simple to use and check water levels on these products. We've been telling our friends and neighbors who are looking for an easy way to grow vegees or house plants practically work free.

              • Used For Salad Greens

              This is great on patio outside back door for salad greens and flowers. Too narrow for tomato plant and I don't think it's deep enough for root veggies. So far it has worked well. The full convenience on watering to be determined in the heat of summer.

                    Best Uses

                      This is an attractive pot at a very reasonable price. The major disappointment was that the water level gauge does not appear to work. I added almost two gallons of water and the level did not move at all. I should have checked how much water it would take before putting soil in it. There appears to be no way to tell when to add water or if you've added too much. Time will tell.

                      Best Wall Planter I've ever owned

                      • Wtr In Btm Goes Stagnant

                      Best Uses

                      • Grow Flowers
                      • Grow Veggies
                      • Patio decor

                      I've owned these planters for 6 years and they are still in great condition even tho they are exposed to 115 degree weather here in AZ in full sun! My only problem was the water retention in the bottom didn't work as it should. The water just became stagnant and plants dried out so I stopped using the fill tube or depending on the system.

                      • Hanging from deck railing

                      This is a good product. Nice size to allow for plants to spread. Used to replace smaller container that I had been using for several years hanging from the deck rail. Use caution when creating overflow holes. Though I followed the instructions included mine cracked. Customer service was wonderful and replaced it as soon as they were back in stock.
