      Nice, but color fades in the sun

      By Erin

      from Baltimore, MD

      Pros

      • Attractive Colors

      Cons

      • Color Fades over Time

      Best Uses

        The colors on these are beautiful. I bought them last spring, and they were in almost full sun until I put them away last fall and realized the color had faded. We'll see how they look after another year out in the elements.

        I have a narrow railing, and the planters were tilted away from it and not level. I fixed that by cutting up a foam pool noodle and putting it behind the planter, to push it a little farther from the railing.

        Also could never get the self-watering to really work right, but that wasn't the main reason I got them anyway. They're very attractive and easy to install -- you just might have to make adjustments depending on the kind of railing you're using them on.

              Square railings, No problem

              By ajr

              from Manheim, Pa

              I have upright 2x4 railings and the planter hangs great. It is also stronger and more heavy duty than I thought it would be.

                        By Mary

                        from Chicago, IL

                          Cons

                            Best Uses

                              I've been struggling for years with getting a railing planter that fits well and securely to my balcony and this is hands down the best I've found! I'm likely going to buy more to use in the coming years. I bought the white, which really shows off my flowers beautifully. The self-watering feature is exactly what's needed to ensure your plants stay moist and well water throughout the summer and in a location with lots of wind and sun. I can't recommend this product more highly.

                              Pros

                              • Colors are bright
                              • Good fit on railing
                              • Heavy duty

                              Cons

                              • Color Faded From The Sun
                              • H2o Gauge Malfunctions

                              Best Uses

                                These planters look very colorful and cheery on the front porch. The water gauge does not always work but I still like them and would recommend them for anyone who wants a flower box for a wrought iron railing. It is a great fit. The top of the box faded a bit from the sun, but the rest of it did not.

                                      It didn't fit on my railing. Apparently it needs to be a cylinder rail which mine is not. Unable to install.

                                        This was back ordered for 3 months but so worth the wait! the color (red) is a true brilliant red that pops on our back porch wrought iron bannister. definitely dresses up the space and resolves the issue I've had with hanging plants drying out due to sun and wind, despite daily watering. Could not be more satisified. And the customer service from Gardener's is great!

                                          I had to wait a long time for these but the wait was worth it. They are very upscale looking and fit perfectly on my railing. They are a heavy duty shiny plastic with a bulb that monitors the water (whether it needs to be watered). Time will tell how they withstand the environment.
