    Like some shoes, look good but don't fit

          These boxes were really great. Sadly, they fit my deck over the top but the upright spindles on the backside came up too far. The box would not slide down over them.
          Next time I will measure top and both sides of upright spindles.
          I had to return them.

            Unable to use until warmer weather and can plant flowers. Do like that it fits railing and is self watering. Have had others but dry out too fast.Looking forward to using them this year.

            I thought about making this purchase last year and waited too long before supply ran out. I needn't have hesitated - great decision. Added just the right amount of color to our rental house and we can take it with us if we have to leave.
            More color options would be nice. Otherwise, a sure bet for any railing.

                        So far, so good. I'm at a loss to tell if the water reservoirs are filled, but plants are thriving in the California sun and heat.
                        I added a fine gravel mulch so that watering doesn't disturb the light soil.

                                I put this on my front porch railing (the only place where I might get enough sun to grow herbs) and it is enormous looking. It swallows up my front porch. Beware that because it fits 2 sizes, the product has a very high height and it is not attractive looking, IMHO. Disappointed. Will probably return and probably try the planters that just fit the 4" railing.

                                  I received the product, put it on the deck railing and filled it with plants. It's beautiful, stable and the plants are doing very well. The heavy duty boxes look great with the wood of the deck and the area under the deck doesn't get wet due to the reservoir that holds water. Love it.

                                  Our deck is so hot and it is very hard to keep things watered on the deck. I bought two planters and filled them with full sun plants and they look awesome, the dirt stays watered, the plants are big and full look great. so I bought one more to fill the railings!

                                  We moved into a townhouse community where the grounds are "common space" and the plantings are all maintained by a landscape company -- so these windowboxes are my garden and they line my deck. When my neighbors saw them and admired them, I said "Gardeners Supply!" and now they all have them too. I wish they came with something to tie or clip them to the rail for extra stability, but we will figure something out for that. They are great!
